And offering the t-shirt option with the cuffs and collar toowhy is it getting 'bland' that we haven't messed with the home jumper for three years?
Keeping things 'fresh' and constantly tweaking is the reason we ended up with a striped square on the front of the jumper when the hoops disappeared completely
The jumper is fine, no need to change for change's sake
The only thing I'd do is put yellow cuffs on the end of the long sleeved jumpers
I think our SANFL guernsey would make for a great AFL clash guernsey, hopefully they consider it next time.I think the away jumper is pretty bad, just like what is the point, our brand is the hoops, why bother with a pretty weak chevron instead?
The We Fly As One bird? I think it's one of those things that we like now because of what it represents but as an actual logo, it's pretty uninspiring. This white silhouette version could be the above view of something a crow might splat from above.
Also, we know there is a connection between winning games of football and fans liking or hating a jumper, why risk the WFAO brand by putting it on a jumper.
Onto the white base, I actually think all clubs should get over it and have an all-white and an all dark jumper, the AFL has softened its stance on clashes recently and some of them, at least on tv, were horrible last year, but if everyone else is doing colour, why are we sticking with the white? Also why do some teams get away with major clashes, but we have to wear white when our home jumper wouldn't clash as much as other teams clashes.
Overall I think if you are doing an away jumper, take a risk and do something non-traditional that people will love/hate, or just stick to the hoops, this is kind of non-offensive, safe, (you can't even say it's for the kids) change for the sake of change.
To bring in more money? I'd do modern, stupid gradients or whatever the designer needs to get out their creative frustrations, over the top creative design for the kids PRESEASON jumper. Older supporters will hate it, the kids will love it type of thing.
Then bring back our own retro/history round, but instead of some faux history/SANFL history jumper, bring out some of the away/clash jumpers from the past.
But every other round of the year, its hoops.

I'd prefer we identify more ways to win flagsFor those complaining about the new guenerseys being change for change sake just don't buy it simple.
Also next time we don't have a new guernsey don't blame the club for not identifying more ways to make a larger profit.
