A solid black helmet with a white logo = YAWN.

I am not a fan of black for black's sake on a uniform. I generally prefer brighter colours. Black and red is kinda tired and boring. I'm glad that neither our CFL or NHL teams use black.

Did the ad photoshop the helmet to make it black and white or is this going to be the actual colour of the helmet?

I lived in Winnipeg all my life and this year I moved to Ottawa for work. I was at 2 training camps in Winnipeg this year and I'm excited to see a good batch of players.

Also, some are saying the Bomber store sucks. Don't know why. They have a great selection of gear and apparel. A little overpriced but what isn't nowadays...

I do however take issue with the marry go round branding and coming out with new jerseys every other year. Please CFL sign a long term contract with one of the apparel companies and call it a day. To expect us to buy new jerseys every other year is pretty crass..

No, they're saying the online Bomber store sucks.  The B&M store at IGF is quite well stocked.  And, yes, stuff sure is expensive, but like you said, par for the course, and the fans will pay.  Now, do they have me a bucket hat for this year??  Preferably under 50 bucks.  Wink

Well, at least there's almost no change in style/colors in '19 vs '18 for WPG.  I'm pretty sure the teams line up the jersey companies in a bidding war as often as they can in order to extract the most $$ from them.  They say this is New Era's first year making jerseys (most just hats before), so we'll see if they even know how to do it right.

I meant the black signature one with the silver horse.

That one is pretty cool. Very unique in the CFL, to be sure.

Was at the Bomber Store this weekend, and notice that the new white jerseys are the exact same as the Adidas jerseys.  The on-field version has the blue extending down below the name-bar, but the fan jerseys it's up higher.  I may be in the minority, but I will NEVER buy one of these if it is not the same (or similar) to the on-field version. 

Also, I have a newborn son and there is literally nothing there to buy for him.  Everything is 12 months or older, which is ridiculous.  Go to Saskatchewan and they have stuff everywhere.  We even asked if they were just sold out and the manager just said no and walked away.  I have had a bone to pick with the store for a while, but they sure don't seem like they really care.

I had the same issue last year. I just bought a 12 month one and figured it'd be good for two years.

It fits much better now, lol.

First year, just dress them in paper bags, it doesn't make any difference.  Grin

Then why does my wife keep coming home with new outfits?

And she's dressed in something different than what I dropped her off in every time she stay's my parents.

It's sickening, really.

You need lots of outfits to deal with the "explosion" plays... If you're not sure what that is, you will find out soon enough  Cheesy

Congrats on your new son!  My daughter is almost 3 months now, and I was thinking of checking out the B. Store at the IGF home opener, but now I know not to bother.

With the passing of father's day recently, congrats to all new (and old) parents on the forum.  Bringing up the next gen of Bomber fans!

Hehe... ya, I think need to get Richie Hall in here to clean up those explosion plays for me.  They're causing team Tecno some real problems.
