No, they couldn't get those to work.

In response to Red Head's  » 10 Jan, 2015  entitled " Where Is Everybody ?" I'll have to post my usual rant for the RedBlacks to adopt the Ottawa Rough Riders uniforms with the Big White R without the saw blade. C'mon RedBLacks make my dream come true. No kidding, when the Ottawa franchise was dead and gone about 8 years ago, I had a dream that I was at Lansdowne Park watching the Rough Riders play again as a new team with the familiar Russ Jackson and Tony Gabriel "R" on the helmet. I know, call me crazy, but I actually had a dream like this. When I woke up I actually thought, " That's never going to happen. Let's hope it comes true !!!!


I'm going to make you faint, ORR.... I agree with you 100%... it would be great to see to the old unis on the field... my very first CFL game was at Taylor Field vs. Ottawa back in 1977... it would bring back great memories to see those again... even better would be to see the games between Sask/Ottawa using retro unis from the 70's for both games!


 :thup: I just think the old RR unis were the best looking ones. I love the old Sask Ronnie Lancaster ones also. I'm a traditionalist and don't particularly like the look of the modern unitard uniforms although if they have traditional styling, piping and trim like the Argonauts, Tiger-Cats and Eskimos, the current Reeboks don't look as bad. Winnipeg I believe, have the nicest looking unis in the league IMO and they have modern looking oringinal uniforms. Even if the RedBlacks adopted their styling but with Ottawa colours they could have really nice unis. I just don't think there was much thought put into Ottawa's current uniforms. They're bland and boring.

Next year !!! New Nike Rider-styled uniforms with a big RedBlacks white "R". On the helmet like the old RR but updated. C'mon Hunt, OSEG do it. You've had 2 seasons to grow your brand now. Make some old RR fans happy damn it !

It wont be Nike next year.  It will be Adidas.. and they pretty much have their design set.  I was at the team shop last week and they told me there won't be too many changes except there may be some alterations to the font and size to make the numbers more viewable.

They had their theme nights this year so again, unless they did some throwback event, I don't see much of it happening either.

What we might see is a new "3rd jersey" to replace the red atrocity that Reebok came up with last year.  Maybe Adidas will whip one up on which we can actually read the numbers.  :?

Here's an idea ... MAKE THE NUMBERS WHITE and bring back the block numbers so we can read them clearly and get rid of the italics.

Whatever they do to make them easier to read...The silver numbers on the 3rd jerseys in particular were awful.

The practice uniforms are plain black with the white italic numbers. Take that and simply add thick red with thin white stripes on the sleeves and you have the perfect home jersey. Then, add a single thick red stripe down the centre of the helmet with a thin white stripe on either side of that red stripe, and you have perfection again. Then, add white pants with a black stripe down the length of the leg and you're done. A perfect Ottawa football uniform.
A white face mask on the front of the helmet may or may not improve the look of the helmet.

:thup:  :cowboy:  :) Amen to that. Then put the RedBlacks' R or the RR R on the helmet and we're done. Perfection !!!  :lol:

They should be using new 3rd uniforms next season, I expect that they will be red again, most of the players like them. It would be nice to see the single R on the helmet, but I doubt it will happen. The need to put a number on the front of the jersey as well.

I agree. They most likely will have a new third jersey as Reebok is out and I Adidas (?) is in. I expect to see them wearing those red ones tomorrow, for the FINAL time and they will be given away after the game to some of us lucky fans.  :wink:

Love the uniforms.  Love this team.

Any update on addidas  and possibly new third jersey . Would love to at least see old Ottawa RR uniforms even with new rb logo . The Phillips new era hat with the two bloody axes and the R looked pretty good (sold out).

Not sure what thread to put this in, but I was watching some old You Can't Do That On Television episodes on You Tube, and one of them had a cameo by Rider legend Tony Gabriel.
