    Full story and full gallery of the new helmet.

    STAMPS UNVEIL NEW HELMETS
    The full unveiling of the Stampeders’ Signature Look uniform takes place at the Labour Day Classic against the Edmonton Eskimos on Sept. 1 but today’s practice at McMahon Stadium will give everyone an advance look at part of the ensemble.

    Stamps players are wearing the sleek new helmets at practice today as they gradually break in the protective headgear ahead of their first official in-game use.

    The new helmets combine components of both Stampeders tradition and innovation. The classic running horse remains the centerpiece of the helmet, but with a bold twist as the iconic logo is rendered in reflective chrome instead of white.

    The helmet features a gradient from traditional red in the back to a matte black finish on the front.

    Other features of the new helmet include radiating lines, the Latin slogan “quid quid requiritur” — Whatever It Takes — on the rear bumper and “Calgary” on the nose bumper.

    Equipment manager George Hopkins, who has been with the club for more than four decades, was the primary driving force behind the helmet design.

    Nothing turns men into fashion designers more than new jerseys...

    I didn't think I was going to like it.

    But after seeing the players' reaction, I've changed my mind.

    It's pretty racy.

    And even if the change is too radical for some, at least they stayed away from the hideous plaid-topped helmet that Ottawa will sport...:yuck:

    Just got a tweet from @StampedersPres (Gordon Norrie) saying that due to overwhelming fan requests the new Stamps jersey will be available to purchase Friday August 29th. No time given.

    The old joke about the CFL was that we had only 9 teams, and two of them were named the Roughriders.

    Now we have 9 teams with different names, but two of them wear red and black.

    I like the Signature look.
    I didn't know what to expect, but I love the fact that they incorporated the mustang with a sleek, modern design.

    Those helmets are starting to grow on me. Not crazy about all the black on them, but those thin streak lines and the overall shiny metallic look is pretty cool.

    If thats "busy" then Betty White is the new Lady Gaga.

    Sickest helmets in the game. Hopefully Reebok and the CFL marketing team was genius enough to make full size replicas and mini's of these as every team will sell them like hot cakes.

    Oh yeah, especially with the classic crossed pistols on the shoulders, those'll really sell! :D
