BLUE EYES CRYING IN THE RAIN: In Winnipeg, Kirk Penton noted the Blue Bombers unveiled "mostly blue" Reebok jerseys Tuesday. But there is "no gold" in the uniform, and fans "quickly took to social media to lambaste the look, ripping it for making it appear too much like what" the Argonauts would wear. The Bombers, along with the rest of the CFL, will "wear the new uniforms twice this season and next year as well" (WINNIPEG SUN, 8/20).
A HORSE, OF COURSE: The CALGARY HERALD noted the Stampeders have "revealed the bold new helmets that will be part of the team's so-called Signature Look uniform." The team said that the "rest of the new uniforms will be revealed at the Labour Day Classic on Sept. 1, when the Stamps will don the new threads for the first time." The Stampeders' horse logo is "featured in reflective chrome, rather than its traditional white," and "the Latin slogan 'quid quid requiritur' is stamped on the rear bumper" (CALGARYHERALD.com, 8/20).
