Enough retro

Post by Fierylake » Sat Jun 08, 2013 5:35 pm

Rider fan here,
Has anyone else had enough of the "retro night"
Because of this the riders have the second ugliest third jersey ( the ugliest goes to the Bombers gold jersey)
I don't know about anyone else but I miss seeing the riders in black.

I am looking forward to the Argo's bringing back the boat logo, when they celebrate the 30th aniversary of the 1983 Grey Cup this season.

I like the Bomber Gold and with Blue numbering and pants. I think it looks great.

Love the retro wear. Toronto's 70's jersey and helmet are awsome. As with argonaut11xx, I'm looking forward to the boat logo for the 30th anniversary as well.

I'm a big fan of those retro Montreal jerseys, the all red one's with the wings on the helmet, really sharp and like the Ticats retro jersey as well. I personally enjoy the retro nights, always cool to see the old uniforms, and it's only once a year, so I don't think its overdone.

I've heard Ottawa is going to have 3 jerseys available this year. You should have your home and away jersey available before the team hits the field I believe, but I think they should wait till they're playing before introducing that 3rd one.

The black jerseys suck. Our colours are green and white. And I love pretty much all the teams retros, wish they were the full time jerseys. The modern jerseys are nowhere near as good as the iconic classics

I love the retros. It's a 100 year plus league. Let's celebrate the design and style of all the eras. Why be Grumpy. Let's be Happy.
I don't think I'll ever understand the posts that Rider fans share with us....LOL :wink:

Hopefully the Stamps go back to their classic red and white jerseys next year, so they don't have the same colours as the Redblacks, not sure how Stamps fans feel but I prefer Calgary in red and white.

Agree. The league had one team with each major colour scheme, but for purple and yellow. That is being saved for an expansion team, I guess.

Real Football teams don't wear purple :cowboy:

I like the retro jerseys, some are bad but most are better than the regular jerseys and it's nice to see a change

Minnesota Vikings? The Purple People Eaters. They used to be a powerhouse.
During the late 1960s, the Vikings built a powerful defense known as the Purple People Eaters, led by Alan Page, Carl Eller, Gary Larsen, and Jim Marshall.[19] In 1968, that stingy defense earned the Vikings their first Central Division title and their first playoff berth.[15]

In 1969, the Vikings went 12–2, the best record in the NFL,[18] and had 12 straight regular-season victories, after a season-opening loss to the New York Giants, which was the longest single-season winning streak in 35 years.[20] The Vikings defeated the Cleveland Browns 27–7 in the last NFL Championship Game on January 4, 1970, at Metropolitan Stadium. Minnesota became the first modern NFL expansion team to win an NFL Championship Game,[18] and earned a berth in Super Bowl IV; however, the heavily favored Vikings lost that game to the Kansas City Chiefs, 23–7.[21] The team MVP that season was Joe Kapp, who threw for seven touchdowns against the Baltimore Colts – still an all-time NFL record; however, Kapp refused to accept the award, stating, "There is not one most valuable Viking... there are 40 most valuable Vikings!

Damn Ravens aren't real ??

Seriously though, as teenagers, we won back-to-back Vancouver & District championships, sporting purple and gold for Ian Anderson.
Steveston Packers. Real enough for me.
