CFL Teams Unveil Redesigned Reebok Jerseys, Many Drastic Changes
Published May 3, 2012
OUT WEST: The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are dropping their white away jerseys with the changes this season in favor of a new gold jersey that will be worn during all away games (Blue Bombers). Ranjitsingh said, "The league had a bit of hesitation towards going to a gold, but once they saw it … you can’t deny how great it looks." He added, "When you’re leaving the game you won’t feel like you’ll want to take it off when you go to the bar to hang out. You’re proud to wear it" (WINNIPEG SUN, 5/2). In Calgary, Allen Cameron notes the Stampeders' new uniforms feature a white-on-white road ensemble, "a distinct departure from the past when the Stamps generally wore red or black pants to go along with the white tops." The new jerseys are also a "departure in many ways from the outfits sported in recent seasons." Stampeders Equipment Manager George Hopkins said that a new design for third jerseys "will be unveiled next season" (CALGARY HERALD, 5/3).
