Maybe I was blind for all those years, but watching the Alouettes VS Winnipeg game tonight I noticed for the first time that the Blue Bombers players have their team's logo at the front of their shirt, instead of the player's number.
I find this unusual but honnestly I find this better looking to have the team's logo on the shirt. What's your toughts? Do you think the other CFL teams should do the same?
You haven't been blind--this was the first time they wore those jerseys. Their regular ones have numbers on the front.
I'm so used to numbers on the front that I prefer that look. Somehow it looks stronger to me that way. But maybe it just takes getting used to. Heck, if the leagues needs new revenues badly enough, maybe they will consider selling the jersey fronts to corporate sponsors like some other sports do.
Don't like it. It's hell for the umpire (the guy standing among the linebackers) to detect offensive holding and remember some number within a fraction of a second while continue to officiate when the action moves elsewhere.
When I see the logo in front I see trying too hard .
How many Redblack fans have been asking for a traditional third jersey incorporating the old RR look of the past with solid black jersey with just stripes on the arms instead they give us kids pyjamas with some feminine plaid styled pants and jersey .
The helmet they proposed for that look was axed thankfully . It was too busy and complicated .
Not sure they use any think tank in the CFL they just throw things on the board .
