Will that be a player issued Guernsey for his 300th? or is this a retail initiative only?
I just realised what they are going for with that guernsey and the "shield" actually being "eddies pocket"

I don't see any issue with their being fanfare around a players 300th, even if we are not flying.

Crowmania sold out again of long sleeve Guernsey. Friggin crap. Now that Crowmania don't do phone orders you're stuffed if you don't live in Adelaide. Is there a Crowmania in the city? West Lakes is so out of the way.

There's a AFL store in the city now, but there hasn't been a Crows store since 2014.

So I'll precede this with an acknowledgement that attending the Kangaroos game on the weekend has probably added a fair bit of extra salt to my mood...

Son's significant birthday; I thought 'let's make a weekend of it, go to the game, buy him a gurnsey that fits and he can get it signed at the Vic Members Day on Sunday'. Confirmed that there would be merchandise there with the club last week and was told it's a good weekend for it as it's 15% for members.

Get to the merchandise stand and told there are only limited S and XL gurnseys in both home and clash designs. So no new gurnsey for my son to get signed at the members' day.

Ring Crowmania today - none in the shop there. Also rang AFL Store head office and there are none in any stores or online there.

Now individually, everyone has been very understanding and apologetic and I'm grateful for that. I've managed to source one online - it won't be here by his birthday.

But it is round 4 FFS, not round 20. How is it that ISC cannot supply enough bog-standard gurnseys this early in the season? It's not like the AFL season is a surprise.

ISC don't supply that much gear from what I've heard and experienced in the past.
They mostly only have a few small runs of production for our gear in designated timeslots every year I believe, whereas I think other companies aren't so locked in as to when our gear can be made.

Jesus that's ****. Even in the store there's low numbers!

Does anyone know how to apply the member discount on the web store? I wanted an Eddie tee at the game but they only had up to the XL at the ground.

While I'm here, also super disappointed in an AFLW premers line that was both anemic, and so low in production run that everything bar the ordinary tee and cap sold out on the train ride home - and when I tried the AO merch store at the next men's home game the caps and shirts only came in women's and kids sizes.

The merchandise was dictated by the AFL. They designed it in such a vanilla way that it was easily adaptable to either side. The AFL also would've slapped a cease and desist notice on anyone (probably including the club) that tried to do a better range of premiership merchandise (ala the guys that made the Tayla Harris t-shirts).

Could we go the other way with our away strip?

Have a 'black crow' option - all black guernsey. Gold numbers, red trim. Black shorts.

For games against clubs with bright coloured guernseys - eg Sydney, Gold Coast, West Coast, Bulldogs. Even North Melbourne.

Then the white vs the mostly dark guernsey teams Rich, Carl, Ess, Bris, Freo, Melb

The yellow alternative strip hasn't really taken off. I hardly see anyone wearing it at games either.

If we were going to do that it’d be better to just go navy

Doubt the AFL would let us do that.

Melbourne now have their blue or red guernsey.

Don't see why we can't go with the option of our navy, OR red version of our (current clash), especially if it was a vibrant red, gold cuffs/collar/numbers

A red variant would be pretty cool, as would bringing back the gold one. I don't care if we had one bad quarter in Hobart wearing that gold guernsey, it was still a good clash guernsey.

We've got a great set of colours, I have no idea why we settle for white rather than going with red or yellow versions of our clash. We always used to use the "It's an AFL rule" excuse, but that's clearly not the case any more since we're the only team other than GC who uses a white clash when white isn't a team colour.

Never really understood the logic behind not liking a guernsey because we played bad games in it. I've seen some piss poor performances in our home guernsey too but we're not changing that.

The "its popular with kids because its good for autographs" is another common line used but I dont think its a great reason at all either.

TBH I dont mind the while as long as it stays a traditional type look like the current design. At least hat having our hoops on it gives it a Crows identify rather than some gimmicky design.

If we went to yellow and red versions of a hooped design id have no issue with that either.

Just keep it a design that adults can look at and feel proud to support the team wearing it (and adults wear it and feel like actual men/adults when thy are out there playing AFL games), not a design that looks cool enough for a kid to want to buy it (and then become bored of it and want the next one)
