New t-shirts are out...

...and I rather like them. I actually went to the store to get one, but...

...the shipping is more than the actual shirt! There is only one option — Fedex.

I guess I'll have to have a relative buy one and mail it to me. Seems like a pretty big hassle, and unnecessary expense, for a nice t-shirt.

Hold on for a couple of days - a Canada Post shipping option is on the way!

Can these be bought in stadium too?

I'd like to get one, guess I'll wait for the Canada Post shipping option. Good article in CBC News:

CFL 'Diversity is Strength' T-shirts released after racial violence in U.S. Shirts deliberately put on sale early in response to violent protests in Charlottesville, Va

I don't believe so; just on http://cflshop.ca/ and the team online stores.

actually according to the people managing the cfl twitter, they are trying to get the shirts into the team stores, in stadium as well as online.

Thanks for the update! That's GREAT to know!


ESPN:

The Canadian Football League launched a "Diversity Is Strength" campaign this week in response to heightened racial unrest in America, a rare step into large-scale social advocacy for a North American sports league.

I see the new commish is going to be on CNN talking about this. Just saw this on a snippet text line on CHCH news this morning.

Travel, maybe CNN is ok afterall. Ok, we won't talk about this anymore now, this isn't the 'off-topic' section. :-*

Great idea by the league. Well done.

These shirts are crap.
....Let's see if this is removed as well....

So we cannot discuss a cfl shirt?

Why?

You did not just say that ???

We are not allowed to say ...

Just testing to see if this post would be removed.
Apparently, discussing the shirt in any way other than complete approval of the shirt, the message, the timing of its release, or anything else viewed as critical gets your comment removed.
This is a political and socially inspired shirt which begs for a conversation of the same subject matter, but when one does, it's removed.

FASCISM is alive and well on the CFL forum.
Closing the off topic section invites conversation to take place here, especially when the thread is a politically inspired shirt.

The shirt itself is not politically inspired, at least not by recent events. The timing is.

Comments are welcome on this and the commish's CNN interview at:

You sure about that goose

Personally, I don't see anything wrong with the shirt design or message. I rather like them and purchased one in both English and French.

As for your fascism comment. This is a message board operated by a private company, freedom of speech doesn't apply here. They can delete whatever they like.

So? Singing the national anthem before games or military appreciation nights are also political, do you have issues with those things?
