    I asked this question pages back the fact we wore it in 2014 leads me to believe the bluster of the AFL and Eddie wouldn't hold up if challenged but no one wants to go down that road obviously.

    I mean legally lol you'd have so much material to present like other clubs having design changes, in Freo's case colours dropped, a number of clubs with similar colours etc. etc.

    It should never come to legal action though just common sense.

    There is the precedent of the week leading up to the EF 2014. The AFL - Mark Evans, how ironic - told us we couldn’t wear our home BiB kit because of clash, and Richmond had no acceptable ‘away’ kit. By switching to Prison Bars in record time with AFL approval we created our own precedent.

    Yeah it's weird. Something happened in 2014 in the lead up to us being allowed to wear them in that final.

    "Despite the Power having an agreement with the AFL — to overcome sensitivities with Collingwood — that it would only wear the club’s black-and-white strips on significant occasions, the centenary of the national title has not met with the league’s approval."

    https://www.adelaidenow.com.au/spor...l/news-story/c23318ec0ccc2989dc004d09341f9dbc

    So they knocked us back when we wanted to celebrate the anniversary of the 1914 team and then screwed us around by saying we should wear our clash strip against Richmond because they didn't have one. Really we only wore the PBs in 2014 at all was because the AFL were made to look silly publically.

    The supreme irony from that situation is that Richmond, all credit to them, pushed hard after this event for their yellow with black sash alternative guernsey, that they ultimately won a premiership in.

    I doubt there's a Tiger's supporter alive that would diminish that guernsey now. (it looked fantastic too, from a neutral perspective)

    If they had that prior to 2014, we would not have had the opportunity to create the precedent of wearing that guernsey in a winning Elimination final at home.

    IMO, this is the single biggest argument FOR wearing them more often.

    We've worn them and things went well. Even for Richmond... eventually.

    The flips and turns on permission to wear the Bars throughout our AFL journey actually gives us leverage if we ever need to take action as it highlights stupidity splendidly.

    The whole situation was a complete farce.

    In the space of 3 weeks we played Carlton on a very significant anniversary sans Bars because reasons, told to wear our clash jumper in a home final because reasons but then allowed to wear the Bars instead because reasons.

    There was no logic to any of it and to top it all off Richmond rocked up in their “clash jumper” with the yellow sides anyway. The AFL is run by complete morons.

    Serious question - do you think wearing the PB's increases our major sponsorship opportunities?

    Not as much as winning games, prime time exposure and a competent board does.

    The board meeting is today and we only have 5500 signatures.

    I feel like the deadline was sprung onto us too quickly.

    I feel like 10k was a straw man.

    5500 signatures in such a short space of time is a very significant number.

    If the board dont act on that it is not good enough.

    I think it was an arbitrary number plucked out of thin air and thrown into cyberspace.

    I'm really not sure how it helped anything.

    It was just used to spur us on. They’ll most definitely be talking about it.

    There's no real valid reason why we can't do what brizzy do with the old fitzroy colours.
    Pb a handful of times a year, black chevron a handful of times, the white / Grey / teal chevron a few times too.. It really shouldn't be that hard..

    Just posted a link to the petition on the Carlton board, we're bonding over us wanting them to do well next year to piss off the Crows and them wanting the PB's back to piss off Collingwood. Brought up the Craig Bradley connection too.

    8 out of 10 people that voted here want the change.
    1 out of 10 want us to wear Jack Watts.
    Another 1 out of 10 are wrong.

    The people have spoken.
