I’ll never understand not using school colors
Nationally televised game in essentially prime time and our school colors are no where to be found. Players are in black and white. Coaches are wearing royal blue. It’s bad branding / marketing.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the white unis and striped helmets. Just use the Tiger blue somewhere. The right one.

Not only that, but our record in the black/grey and white is the worst of all of our uniforms going back 3 years. Shocker.

Shocker? I await the wisdom surrounding how uniform color impacts W-L .

Like the unis or don’t but it takes a QAnon conspiracy to make an impact on Ws argument.

I think Canada should vote weekly on which uniforms we wear.

Canadians can’t be fans? He seems like a pretty loyal one to me.

The only uniforms we have that don't include blue have a correspondingly bad game record and you can't see a trend? I'm not going to speculate why, but obviously it messes with our team's performance somehow. I mean that and they are blah.

So you’re superstitious. Given over to unreasonable, unprovable and unsustainable beliefs about what influences outcomes. Now throw in another juvenile name calling Act to top it off. Or maybe you just wanted to compare me to Moses’ father-in-law. Who knows.

Jethro makes an idiotic post about Canada and then calls me juvenile. You continue to have a complete lack of self awareness. Our last two regular season losses were in white with black trim...and the uniform isn't our team colours...and it looks stupid.

You asked for facts, you got facts Jethro.

Cop cars were black and white.

Fire engines red, yellow, or green.

One doesn't want to be seen. One does.

It ain't rocket science.

RE: I’ll never understand not using school colors
Some fire departments, particularly starting in the 1990s or maybe the 1980s, began to paint their trucks a very bright fluorescent yellow that bordered on green. Same for EMT ambulances. You still see some painted this very bright yellow-green color.
