Yeah someone would know better than me. I thought that was why they switched to the chevrons in the first place, some legal issue with the Dockers brand. Assume it's a similar situation to Port's prison bars: they get the green light for the odd one off appearance but not sure if they'd be clear to have it as part of the regular kit and wear it 8-10 times a year.

Even if they repurposed the green and purple with chevrons, I reckon it'd immediately be the coolest clash in the league.
The change from the anchor, purple, green, red and white jumper to the purple chevrons was an under-handed act by a pair of marketing arsewipes (aka the two Steve's) who became our CEO and President. Nothing to do with any legal issues, just a marketing ploy. I'm sure that if the club wanted to (and listened to the fans) then they could play with the original strip every week.

Keep it as the home strip, use the purple away

I dont think there was any issue with the anchor on the jersey but there was an issue with using the word "dockers" on clothing as Levis owned the trademark for dockers on clothing. All our original merchandise never used the word "dockers".

Weirdly when we did our re-branding and changed to the chevron jersey we came to an agreement with Levis to use the dockers name but ditched the anchor.

I liked the change to purple chevrons at the time, but now the Ross/Steves era is in the rear-view mirror it might be time for a rebrand.
