Riders Unveil New Jersey









Riders Release CFL Signature Uniform

 

 

The Saskatchewan Roughriders today unveiled a special edition jersey which will debut at Mosaic Stadium on August 16th against the Montreal Alouettes.  The special addition jersey will be worn up to two times a year and is part of the new CFL Signature Uniform program from Reebok.  Player video’s and images of the new jersey can be viewed at www.Riderblitzgreen.com

 

Fast, bold and exciting, this new jersey was designed to capture the spirit and energy of Rider Nation.  The new design uses traditional Rider green as its core but highlights that iconic colour with a new blitz green.  A modern addition to the classic look, blitz green takes the design to a whole new level.

 

Special sublimated twill numbers show off the unique “wheat to sky” pattern inspired by the current logo.  Combined with the new carbon coloured pants a modern new sock design and topped by a wheat pattern wrapped helmet, the new signature uniform is unlike anything in the 104 year history of the Roughriders. 

 

“Our new special addition Jersey brings a new Green to the Roughrider Colour palette.   The new “Blitz Green” is a vibrant colour that complements the traditional Rider green   and delivers a new energy to game day”, said president and CEO Jim Hopson. 

 

Assistant GM Jeremy O’Day commented, “This is a very unique, bold jersey.  It’s definitely a statement jersey that our players are really excited to suite up and play in on Aug 16th.”

 

In addition to jerseys, the Rider Store will stock an assortment of hats, tee shirts and a sideline polo.  Mark Habicht, Director of Retail Operations added, “We wanted to allow coaches and fans to get in on the new green and be part of this exciting new look.”

 

Starting immediately, the new jerseys and the clothing collection are exclusively available from all four Rider Store locations – Mosaic Stadium, Northgate Mall, Grasslands in Harbour Landing and The Centre in Saskatoon, as well as online at www.theriderstore.ca.

Just another 'money grab' and an ugly one at that.

I think the Riders have come to the 'cash cow' once too often. I hope they don't have a bunch pre-done because they'll lose their ass if they do.

Every team in the CFL is doing it, not just one.

Call 9-1-1 if you can't take your head out of your ass!

There's no tradition in that color scheme. "1982 Mr Joey Walters and crew, now those jerseys were kool. A darker green with white pants/double green stripes down th sides, matching helmet, way kool", none of this lime green crap, shining sheen plus poka dots. Where did they get the new design? The Norwegian curling champions ?

How much did the Riders pay Thomas Ulsrud for his poka dot designs? Geeze, what next for pete's sake, those are ugly a** ugly.

I don't have a problem with it. I have a retro jersey and a regular one so I don't know if I will get this one, but I'm OK with it.

So now the Riders get to wear a watermelon on their heads for a helmet on Aug 16. Whoever approved this design has watermelon insides for a brain, all mush with a few pit seeds.

Remind me to dump my Reebok shares Monday morning.

Surfing the net and found the Argos new uni from Reebok. It's nice and it kept their colours without inventing some putrid new colour to slip into it. On the other hand the Riders new uni is horrible. When did the Riders piss off someone in Reebok?

Neon went out as soon as the 80's did. And it should never come back. Is the XFL coming back and we're trying out early for it? I guess horrible sales should probably end this garbage
