That’s a big fail. People will want the same guernsey as the players wear. You would have thought the “sponsor opportunity” on the back would have liked that to be on the retail guernseys as well.Looks good, would have been better to also have the FFC on the front for retail guernseys too though. Saying it’s a trial
I think those navy shorts are for training though.Love the new jumper. Our guernsey has improved nearly every year for the last decade. We’ve lost the cartoon bulldog and got the hoops back, the blue is now a truer Royal blue, the red cuffs and collar look great we just need to #raise the hoops up to traditional level up under cuffs across the chest not the belly.
And it looks great with Easton Wood wearing navy shorts. Until 1975 we wore black shorts at home and I reckon black might be too much, but navy shorts look amazing with the Royal blue jumper.
The lace-up front would be a real winner.
A few more years and the AFL will have all teams jumpers looking like Rugby jumpers, endless advertising with no ability to see the teams actual colours.I get that they are trying to replicate the look of the old school open neck and red collar, but that V shaped cut out at the neck makes it look like a pre-production piece of hot garbage.
The same goes for the relocation of the FFC to the front of Guernsey for what is without doubt the most AFL of reasons. More asinine advertising.
I do however like how the club tried to polish this turd. “While we were grateful for the opportunity to create an extra revenue opportunity for the Club, we were determined to keep FFC on the guernsey in a prominent position, because we know how important our history is to our members and fans." Hilarious.
Agree totallyNot a fan of this one. To be picky, the red trims look too thick for my liking. The FFC outlined doesn't fit in and is hard to read. The shape above the Asics symbol is strange and something I'd expect on the Thor guernsey. I usually have no issues with our jumpers but this years is just gross to me
