Sentinel has knocked this up, well done. The one on the left is probably a truer reflection of what we wore in 1989, but maybe that’s why the League wanted us out because we let our guernsey get that bad? The one on the right is a beautiful jumper.

Let’s hope we see a few longies on the weekend from the dogs because this is one of their best. I’m keen to buy one if they sell longy versions.
Pretty sure I saw a comment from the club via Facebook that the long sleeve version won't be for sale.

I played Ammos in the 80s
Was that not obvious?
Like Dazzler10 I felt like I was not sure whether the Gia reference was a joke or not.

Wheeler was appointed Coach after the Fightback was successful and the merger called off.

Can anyone make out the original pic that’s used on the back?
I would say it is a picture of the then Western Oval with the 10 000 supporters in October 1989. This image is on the Western Bulldogs website as a background at the moment. I have not seen it stated anywhere that it is but that event is being highlighted as what saved the club.

Thanks for that, yeah, I found it in the club's proportion of the game.
It's what I've used on the back of the jumper.
