Curious as to other Bomber fans thoughts on this.
I am not a big fan of doing the white out as I see this as a Jet's playoff deal and promotion.
Bombers are Bombers and Jets are Jets.
I proudly yell Blue during the anthem and will be wearing my Blue jersey.
Keep the stadium Blue and Gold.

Don't really like it but if it moves away jerseys than I guess it's mission accomplished. No big deal but I like blue at home. Our home colours just look so good.

Good for the Bombers trying to get some excitement going.Nothing wrong with borrowing a successful program from another team. "True North" is yelled at the Stadium as well.

I don't think you will see a high percentage of white in the stands. I thinking less then 50% will wear white.

I dislike white.  It's not flattering on a 65 year old fatboy.  at least in dark colors you can blend into the background and evening hue! LoL

I will suggest Black and Blue( Batman)

True North yell has no place at the Bomber games IMHO.

We've beat Hamilton in 2 Grey Cups wearing white. Maybe that has something to do with it.
I WILL be wearing my white jersey this Friday !

I prefer the home blues, but have no issues switching to white for a game for the fun of it.

Great idea. Now I can wear my Nichols #15 white jersey. If Deatrick Nichols added a 5 his number 1 my white jersey would once again be roster current.

Go Big Blue.

a) I don?t love white at home games but would participate if it was a big annual tradition kind of thing

b) The complete lack of any advertising/promotion for this event will keep people from wearing white, so I?m still gonna rock my blue.

And here I thought I was the only one with that opinion! I indirectly blame TN for the lack of roof on our stadium lol

I got an email about it - I assume it went to all season ticket members? That seems like decent promotion to me.

They announced it at the last game, and for once it was actually audible.  I think most regulars got the message.

As an idea; I don't like it either, unless the idea is to match our team wearing their away jersey??  Don't they need permission from HAM to do this, though?  What if HAM wants to insist on wearing their whites even if we want to?  Can't have both teams in white.

But if the team is wearing their "aways" and we all have white, I could see it messing with HAM's head.  They already have head problems.  Any little extra nudge will mess them up more.

I much prefer the idea of a "gold out".  Then again, besides Member, not many people have a wardrobe that includes gold.

If I get there early enough, I might see if I can find a white jersey for my kid at the store.  Myself, I guess I'll just wear a white shirt and leave the jersey at home... or haul it there and put it on at halftime.

Hey, they should have a game-day promo of a big discount off away jerseys!  Those don't sell well anyhow.
