The Calgary Stampeders are making a modification to their black alternate jersey for the remaining home games this season. In a statement, president and general manager John Hufnagel says the jersey shoulder patch, which features crossed pistols, will be covered.
The decision was made to acknowledge the shooting death last month of Mylan Hicks.
The Stamps were the first CFL team to don an alternate jersey back in 1994. Since then, the black jersey has been popular with fans and players alike. Hufnagel says the black jersey will continue to be an important part of the team identity.
At the end of the season, the team will look at potential changes to the design of the jersey.
