    I've just seen this shocking new Richmond t-shirt and it's got me thinking there's been some truly awful merch over the years, with clubs attempts to make money off everything. What's some of the worst you've seen?

    That's not merchandise. Find it on a tshirt and you'll earn yourself a like.

    I really dislike the completely pointless items, which get "footied up":

    They are just ugly. There are actually plush dolls now, too!

    Tissues, toothbrushes, nail "stickers"? What's next - toilet paper? condoms?

    Stop it! I don't want my teams logo on every damn thing in my house.

    When you have an official milk partner, the sky is pretty much the limit for tacky cash ins.

    And that is why I never open any "merchandise" emails from the club.

    The toothbrush I don't see any different to cartoon character toothbrushes, if they get kids looking after their teeth then fair play.

    If an adult used one though I would question their status as an adult.

    My son loves both the Hawks and Star Wars (hell so do I) so it was a hit with him. For a niche audience, I thought they were fine.

    That Richmond one is actually pretty funny. If I've got it right, people hate Richmond because they haven't won a flag in 35 years.

    Could you imagine Cyril Rioli condoms? I'm not sure it would prolong the ecstasy for Bruce...

    Hawthorns 2015 supporter gear is mostly blue

    Last time I checked our colours are brown and gold. We are not setting the world on fire in 2015 BUT WE ARE NOT CARLTON GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

    I have the Superman shirt..... I have 2 of them :oops:, guess they targeted the right market - Superman nuts lol. I've seen a Batman logo version as well, if only they made it in adult sizes haha.

    I bought a crows key painted white with the old crows logo a few years back. I did it to tell it apart from my other keys when I try opening the front door at night. The paint/sticker didn't last long though.

    You could actually buy toilet paper with club logos on it in the early 1980s.

    The reason I remember is because we covered a friends house in Collingwood toilet paper after the Blues won the 1981 premiership.

    I was hoping this thread would be a parody of Bon Jovi's Bad Medicine. Oh well.

    Why would you hate an opposition club for not winning flags?

    I would love it if every opposition club never won a premiership again.

    Damn, that's just as bad as the Woolies promos. What a really shit way to profiteer. Another reason to stop making it about two clubs.
