Can we adopt a uniform on a permanent basis with classical elements from the 60s, 70s & 80s not unlike the retro unis we wore three times this year? They are so much sharper than the McReebokUniforms we've worn since 2005. The current outfits however are still an improvement over the uniforms worn between 1998 and 2004 but we can do better. A regular classical uniform seems to be working quite nicely for the BC Lions as it has also for the Colts and Jets down south.
It probably won't happen because the CFL has to milk these retro games for a few more years yet. This year is going to be the 70s which I don't see how they can differentiate from the 60s retro uniforms worn this year with modern equipment other than to replace the 'TC' decals on the helmets with the classic leaping tiger.
The 2011 season should see retro 80s week, I wonder if they'll bother with a retro 90s week in 2012? I mean the Ti-Cats uniform just got bad after 1997 and worse into the 2000s. They went from tiger head shoulders, gold pants with a black stripe and a flat black helmet with a gold stripe in 1998 to the all black uniform in 2003 with the triangle gold dart on the pants and stripeless eggshell textured black helmet which looked brown if the sun hit it at a certain angle. Did the previous owners not have enough money for a stripe on the helmet? No wonder we went 1-17.
Anyways, once the league has exhausted its eras for its retro weeks, perhaps the Cats should adopt a sharper, more classical uniform going forward. It would be a nice touch once we're into our new stadium.
