No I don’t think so. The company I went through said that NewEra rejected it because they would only do them for amateur teams and we were just a fan group. I checked all of this from the outset and they said it wouldn’t be an issue, but turns out that it was. Very annoying considering how much time I put into it and tbh I just didn’t have any more at that point to find a way around it, so I had to pull the pin.I know this is old ground, and I didn't order a hat, wasn't really interested in it and only read the odd post in the relevant thread, but why did that clothing manufacturer reject your order? Was there enough irrationality to their answer that suggests the club or AFL pressured them not to do it.
I had half a mind to try again recently but then I procreated and reduced my free time to practically zero lol. I did flick an email to Ben at the Port Store today though when this came up, just to ask the question one last time. I suggested that a heritage logo hat would go down a treat next year when we’ll be going maximum history but I’m not holding my breath. They already do the “PORT” range of hats and tees, which was born out of the “Ports” concepts I’d sent him previously, so I think that’s the best we’ll get out of the Club.
