We already had a futuristic design, but it was just for special occasion games (at least that was the initial intent), which I think most on this board were okay with.
You can still participate (just pretend the Gun Metals aren't on there then).

I admit I wasn't crazy about them initially but the home jersey is growing on me more and more. Like many, would rather see the team logo removed from the back and on each shoulder instead of the numbers.
There was clearly an intention to make the away jersey vastly different and tradition be damned. You rarely see away jerseys at Lions games so my hunch is they wanted to provide a different look, including the shade of orange, to perk up sales. To me it still needs some black involved, whether the number or trimming.
Agree to with the comments of how the replicas are so vastly different compared to the authentic jerseys. The way the sleeves come down, they look more like t-shirts. Just wish there was an option.
Regardless of a opinion, a big day for the club and league to begin the countdown to the coming season. Lions did a great job of reaching out to all the media outlets yesterday.

Including the 3rds in the first option effectively muddies the poll waters by giving 2 reasons to choose it and only 1 reason to opt for the second. B.C.FAN isn't enamoured with them. Others certainly love them to the point of wanting them to be the every-game home jersey. They might choose option 1 not because of the main jersey but only because of the love for the 3rd jersey. Myself I ignored the reference to the 3rd jersey because IMO the battle is strictly between the old orange and the new orange.

Look nothing like the BC Lions.
And last: HUGE thumbs down to that stupid placement of the logo at the bottom of the back of both jerseys.
Riders had it last year, probably got tons of complaints, and ditched it this year.
It just screams out: "but guys, we have to put the logo somewhere!?"

Why is it I start to squirm and feel uneasy when I hear that term in these pages? "Kit" is so, so that other brand of football with the round ball and shorts. Used to be "kit" was a term associated with tools or lunch.

I guarantee though that people will complain about the readability of the black numbers.
