    Michigan is calling it “Maize Out”? The unis are all navy and maize refers to their shade of yellow. Shouldn’t it be “Blue Out”?

    BC Lions gun-metal grey uniforms a bit different than the first version from about 10 years ago. The fans liked them at the time so that appears to be motivation for a return as the 3rd uniform. Like the unveiling of the gun-metal uni the first time, the sprung it on us as a surprise. Doing it this week as we near the end of the regular season.

    One of the differences is no gun-metal helmet. Going with black helmet. Unlike NFL, CFL still adhering to the one-shell helmet rule.

    Do you think that will change next season?

    Would not be surprised if it did but have heard nothing about it. Hoping it doesn’t. The teams are basically wearing helmet colours now (or similar to) that they have historically worn dating way back. Last decade for a period there were a few CFL teams with different colour home and road helmets. Didn’t like the results of that.

    Though I still want just one helmet, I would be for some teams changing colours. Lions going back to the white helmet. Tiger-Cats back in yellow helmets. Prefer the Alouettes back in the royal blue.

    And not only is Youngstown wearing a giant Penguin elsewhere in their league the Jackrabbits are wearing a giant bunny on their helmets
