    Thought I'd kick off our new Stamps site with a discussion about new CFL jerseys.
    Tomorrow the Stamps unveil their new jersey & uniform. My hope is that the bib is finally gone. Don't like the black home helmets & I hear that the team will be using them again this season so I anticipate there will be a little more black in our home jerseys.
    I am not a fan of Reebok. To me, they have ruined the look of the CFL teams ever since their first incarnations in 2005. Judging by what I have seen from the CFL teams unveiling in the East today, they didn't let me down. They set the bar very low IMHO. To say I was disappointed would be polite. There are a lot of colourful expletives I could have said, especially with the Blue Bombers.
    I'm a Traditionalist. I like it when teams honour their past. When you see Green Bay, their logos & uniforms jump out at you. Same with the Bears, New York Jets, Dallas & the Giants. You know the history of those teams. In hockey, teams like Chicago, Detroit & Montreal all have had similar looks for decades. I am hoping that somehow Calgary's uniforms have just a little bit of a connection to the past.
    We'll see, I guess.

    Since this isn't the LFL, I actually don't care what they're wearin', iso.

    As long as they're not naked.

    In the CFL, that is...;)

    Changing the Jerseys every couple of years just seems so bush league, I am with ISO pick a nice retro look jersey and leave it. Play with a 3rd jersey if you must.

    Pleasantly surprised with the jersey. A lot simpler, actually looks nice. But the black pants... Not a fan of the black pants but since we have home black helmets, it matches. Overall: passing grade B.

    I wondered why the Chevy pics were cropped like they were.

    It looks like someone changed their mind about black away pants as you can see a little bit of them in the official pics.

    I never noticed the black stripe up the side of the home jersey which is a disappointment. Changing my mark to a C.

    I like 'em. They're not incredible, but they're sleek and aggressive looking, and undoubtedly a significant improvement over the "bibs".

    They get a B+ from me.

    Hey fellas,

    Thanks for setting up this new site.

    The Stamps jerseys are decent, not mind blowing, but decent. They are an upgrade from the bib.

    To be honest, other than Hamilton and Toronto, they all were a little "meh" to me.

    Anyone know if the Stamps will use their retro a few times this year? As much as the regular Calgary uni's have underwhelmed me in recent years, that red retro they wore was among the best any CFL team has offered.

    Saw them on Facebook today. Pretty underwhelming I'd say. Numbers still ugly. Sad to see the Horseshoe horse on the visitors, I have never liked it. Don't think at this point I will be pounding my money down for a new one. Sorry Reebok!

    I don't think there are any plans to use any retros this season because of the jersey changes league wide. I think, for the most part that most fans have panned the jerseys all across the league. Not a lot of "WOW!!!" is there, Szark? What do you think of the Riders look?

    I'm ok with the Riders new look but I'm not racing out to buy a new one that's for sure.
