Come on, Dale.  Everybody knows that this is just the Riders paying homage to the 2010 Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks so I'm already set with plenty of wardrobe that is now interchangeable.

Actually they remind me of Ottawa Rough Rider colours.

It is Dave. So there were two Rider teams that had similar colors? Adding to the confusion.

But they wouldn't have played each other at the time. They only could have met in the Grey Cup.

Looking at wikipedia, interlocking play did not start until 1961:

Quote
In 1956, the IRFU and WIFU formed a new umbrella organization, the Canadian Football Council (CFC), and in 1958, the CFC left the CRU, becoming the Canadian Football League (The CRU remained the governing body for amateur play in Canada, eventually adopting the name Football Canada). Initially, there was no inter-divisional play between eastern (IRFU) and western (WIFU) teams except at the Grey Cup final. Limited interlocking play was introduced in 1961 and by 1981 there was a full interlocking schedule of 16 games per season.

That's why Brian was confused. He was at the 1951 Grey Cup.  ;D
