    I remember when the GWS released their name, colours and jumper they had a clause whereby they could change their colours before they officially entered in 2012. Surely now they have taken the piss too long and are gonna change their putrid colours before they enter the comp and turn every kid in country off them. Surely green and black would look 100x better, or green and anyhthing for that matter. its an original colour to the afl and any other sporting team in west sydney. Their colours and jumper just look so amateur and un-appealing at the moment.

    The grey and orange were picked as those are the colours of the sunset on the Blue Mountains. They are fine, get over it.

    There's nothing wrong with them, they are a more modernized type of jumper compared to others, but hey, maybe that's because they were introduced over a hundred years later then alot of the clubs. Look good.

    I actually don't mind the colour scheme. The guernsey leaves something to be desired, but it's better than GC's.

    I quite like the orange, but would prefer the grey to be black.

    I'm with the OP. Look for a change like Fremantle in a few years to come.

    Well they couldnt go with black coz then it would of been too similar to essendon, richmond and st kilda. But i mean seriously, the colours i find dull and depressing. I cant wait to look in the stands at the big derby and see the lovely contrast of colours between the 2 nsw teams of red and orange. And for the record, port are more black with a tint of blue to me. A team mostly green would look awesome, but hey, i don;t work for a hip consultancy company like the afl hired to decide this.

    Charcoal is a bit wanky, not sure why they didn't just make it black. But other than that, their colours are pretty good IMO.

    A normal orange with black would be better, the big G also looks a bit silly.

    Orange and "black" is a good colour combination.

    If you're going to be critical of a jumper, GC is the one to be looking at.

    agreed, wtf were they thinking when they designed them? they're all horrible, the GC logo in the middle looks way too tacky
