IIRC, at one time, the home teams wore their whites with the visiting teams wearing their full (dark) coloured uniforms.
I would to see a return to that league requirement.
Instead of seeing mostly white of visiting teams, I would prefer to see them in their full team colours. To me it would just make for a more interesting and colourful show for the 9+ games we witness every season.
You do RC and I have long felt that the preference and reasoning you present here makes sense. And, for a little more variety, the home teams could wear their darks for the two regular season home games that are the second time in for the visitors.
the bombers should continue to wear their retro jerseys the remainder of the season, while wearing their gold jerseys with white pants on the road.
also, the ticats should also wear their retro 70's jerseys at home all year.
and the riders should wear their retor homes and retro aways all the time.
( same for the stamps at home with white pants, not the silver they wore with the retros last season )
I've been thinking, how does Hamilton's black home uniforms impact their performance in the hot summer months?
Are the uniform arrangements the discretion of the home team or the league? If it is the former, may I suggest the Tiger-Cats elect to wear white at least until the game day temperatures begin to drop below 20º.
I have always had a preference for the white jerseys, thought they looked pretty sharp. Maybe they should go back to what they did years ago, and alternate year to year, dark and light. NHL used to do it to.
I'm quite sure it's the latter. However, if a team had some reason, either special circumstance or promotion, on some occasion and the opposition agreed to the switch, I believe the league would go along with it.
So you're wearing nothing to the games now. What section are you sitting in again??
The league mandated the dark jerseys for the home teams, which began in 1969. Prior to that, the home teams always wore their white jerseys. This was also true for the NHL, but it was the opposite. Back in the 60's the Leafs always wore their dark jerseys at home. I believe they turned to the white jerseys at home beginning in 1970. As for the NFL, the home team has the choice of what jersey to wear. Dallas and Washington, and I believe one other team, wear white at home which is why it's so rare seeing the Cowboys in their dark blue jerseys.
Actually, Mighty, you got the two that usually wear white at home in the NFL...I do remember, back in the day, the Browns used to always wear white at home...I remember because they were my team and I would get so excited when they'd play AT Dallas 'cause then I'd get to see them in brown jerseys...
I seem to remember some years ago the Tiger cats wearing the dark uniforms for half the home games one season and the whites for the other half. I can't remember exactly when. I could be wrong on that.
I think wearing the yellow jerseys in the hot weather isn't an entirely bad idea, but then I realized that they'd have to wear black pants which would defeat the purpose. I for one like the yellow jersey's and wouldn't mind seeing them broken out every so often, as long as it's not costing the team too much.
