It was certainly strange watching the Riders play in black and red, but just once for the sake of their heritage, I can live with it. As for the look of the uniforms, well, they're not all that different from the TiCats retros for this year. When I first saw them, I thought they were just re-coloured versions of the Roughriders centennial jerseys.,
Isn't the story that they switched from red to green because they got some free uniforms from somewhere in Chicago? So maybe they're trying to replay that part of their history too, by getting free pants from the Norwegians.
