The orange and white get ups looks fine. The gray is okay, say, for one game per year...maybe like the Auburn game this year. But, I would like to see a nostalgia uniform, like a replica of the 1956 ones. The orange back in the 50's was almost yellow...that's the color and shade I see in my mind when I say: "go big orange." The bonnet helmet with the clear shield replacing the face mask needs to be fast forwarded asap. The CFL in 2014, will reveal a super-innovative uniform that is designed with safety in mind. The medical world, bioengineering world and the biomedical world takes forever to get proven inventions cleared for use. The USA public has to wait until Canada, France and Germany provide proof that medical related items are safe and won't stress the USA insurance companies.
