I think it's cool, everybody was skeptical about the Stamps Black helmets and they didn't look too bad, I think these will be alright too.

...will they feature the magically random pop-right-off-your-head function the stamps black version had?

Calgary's black helmets last year were horrendous, but these might be worse. This constant change (and I blame Nike and the University of Oregon for this with their 3,453 different uniform combinations) needs to stop.

I will reserve judgement until I actually see it on the field. But if this is real, I dont think its going to be too well received....

Personally, I think the New York Jets look just fine in them.

:rockin: The Riders will look 8) too.

I've never been a fan of white helmets. To me they make the player's head look out of proportion.

But will the heads of the players then be more out of proportion than those of many of their fans without helmets on?

Whether Jets or Riders with those white helmets -- they both still suck.

Honestly, YUCK.

Think it looks silly. perhaps a helmet similar to the saskatchewan huskies would be better.

needs more color, looks honestly.. its too white.

it's a bad bad bad bad bad bad idea.

first off it's not traditional. that's the stupid part.

2nd it doesn't work well. you can't just go making these ridiculous changes. why not at least have a poll and see if fans like it or not first!

Yeah...they don't look so good.

I don't know I kind of like it, people scream tradition but we have to evolve, would I have perfered that the Riders new jerseys were the Labour Day/Playoff ones? Sure I would, but the new ones are nice and the White helmets should be ok too! I'm going to give it a shot on TV before I crucify them..

I bet they save money in paint.

Haaaawaa? Really! niccce Oh. Any Football news Like.. What do the players really think about the new coach OR????
Something spicey. Like in Edmonton,,,,,, thier all keeping a tight lip But VERY VERY worried about QB.
Jyles learning but about to turn 30????? Remember BABA Whitch BACKup QB FOR riders. Fissel, Bing, Bang,Pop

They look much better with the retro logo on them, plus a 2 stripes down the center of the helmet...

According to head coach Chamblin, these will be worn for special occasions, not solely on the road as the title of this thread suggests:

I like the occasional usage idea since I'm not a big enough fan of these to want to see them nine times this year. Although maybe they'll look as good with a uniform as a certain orange team..

it really doesn’t look that bad. it beats those god awful matte numbered helmets they were wearing for preseason. what the heck were they thinking with those?! and if you really wanna get down to terrible, remember those black and red throwback uniforms from 2 years ago? :thdn:

I think a white helmet with a Rider logo is acceptable.

I like the way you think :thup:

I think it looks cool! But I come from a city with a poor history of uniforms: Ottawa.

Not sure they'll look good but they are temporary. I assume all teams will be doing something similar this year? It'll get back to normal next year.
