Re: Ed Hervey Extended???

I agree with giving Hervey a one year extension, I'm really curious to see if he can turn it around. Hopefully a year from now we're all having a completely different discussion, this season has truly sucked so far.

Re: 2019 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

The ‘chrome’ decals have a reflective finish, just like the Adidas kits had, and while slick, i agree that they don’t pop as well as the traditional orange decals would. Really think an orange cage would also help liven up these lids.

Lions helmet decals change?

Finally watching DVR’d @bclions vs Bombers, just me or did they switch helmet decals from chrome to regular orange?

Re: 2019 New Era Jerseys

Been playing with some ideas for Leos unis, something that simplifies this current New Era jersey, I find the detailing too busy.
I've taken numbers and arm stripes from 80's look, added similar striping to socks. Two options on pant colours: 60's black pants, or 70s grey pants.
Any thoughts?

I'm liking the latest road combo, with black pants, but stark white socks need some detailing, I mocked up the attcahed pic:

Re: 2019 New Era Jerseys

I saw some of the 'first version' New Era jerseys at a SportChek yesterday, while the only noticeable template difference is the shoulder logos, I will say that the quality of the fabric appears to be an improvement, a higher quality mesh material for the main body, it had a nice feel to it, definit...

Re: 2019 New Era Jerseys

Watching Als Esks last night, appreciated the clean & simple design of both jerseys. Feel like the Lions new jerseys are getting too busy.

Re: 2019 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

The lesson learned here: the league (excluding Als) should have just made NO alterations to any of the jersey designs for 2019, as originally announced, unless it was something simple like swapping number colours, as the Leos did on the road unis, or their other tweak of adding an outline to the num...

Re: 2019 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

In hindsight they should have left this game jersey detail as was last year, then no issue, update it next year. Having seen several images from today’s game, what jumps out the most on these uni sets: the pant stripes. Too bold. Need to be refined, thinned out to compliment helmet striping, regardl...

Re: 2019 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

Just read an Instagram post from Lions Creative Guy, stated that there are 2 sets of pants, orange and black, and they will wear both versions with both home and away over the season. Not a fan of the mix and match approach, but hopefully they eventually decide on one set. And hopefully contacting s...

Re: 2019 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

Let's hope this is just a mix & match for the promo shoot, CFL/New Era promo video does show Lion player in black pants, fingers crossed.
