I'm usually not a fan to the camo type look. But I'll reserve judgement until tomorrow. Can't be any worse than the Ottawa RebBlackPlaids! Toronto's are pretty sharp.

Watermelon Theme anyone? I'll let the already released unis go.

Fair enough, I'm not thrilled with it at this point. Kinda like the ALT hotel, but put it all together for the final judgement.

They are the Blue Bombers. Which out date the original Jets by, I don't know, 30 year or 40 years. So they're the original military team around these parts! Haha

Everytime I see the RCAF target thing, for a split second it's "Hey, the Jets!".

Name originating from...for all you sports history buffs...lol....

In 1936, during a game against the University of North Dakota, Winnipeg Tribune sports writer Vince Leah remarked "these are the Blue Bombers of Western football". This phrase was referring to then heavyweight champion Joe Louis, known as the Brown Bomber. From that day forward the team has been known as the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

I think it's some kind of a modern, blue coloured camo.

Close up of the helmets shows a digital triangle camo pattern - but I'm not sure where the silver grill fits in?
Take comfort, the red, black and plaids take the prize hands down for worst helmet. The only thing that could top the plaid helmets is if they do some kind of Hello Kitty theme for Hamilton.

I'm waiting in eager anticipation for the cats theme.

On the bright side, the bombers will blend into the blue prairie sky and the opposition will be dumb founded as the heads of thier opposition will be no where to be seen, ...Camouflage

The new duds. It's OK, but none of the teams have managed to measure up to BC's cool signature look.

Agreed. The new Bomber is fine. I'm even OK with watermelon helmeted Riders. But the Lions' matte black & red looks badass.

One Winnipeg sportscaster said "it looks like a Smurf threw up a blueberry pie."

I realize the team is called the Blue Bombers but is gold not also an important color in the scheme? Something to do with the golden boy? Wasn't there a controversy way back when some coach/GM omitted gold from new unis?

The BB uniforms aren't bad - I still haven't digested the plaid pants and helmets in Ottawa (Jerseys ok). The designers are obviously too young to remember the Bay City Rollers.

I agree with Treesplease. Winnipeg has always been blue and gold. That could be a Toronto uniform as much as a Winnipeg one and the camo looks pathetic.

Overall the new duds across the league are just that, duds.

They are just for one game.

I wouldn't get too worked up about it.

Ya, But if I designed a uniform for just one game, I would at least try to make it look good. Unless the Reebok guys tried like Homer Simpson tried to design a new car...

Ahhh.. It's one game, uni is OK, people are reading into it like it's thier new uniform for years to come. Hell if they win with it they can petition the league to wear it all season.
