Just got an email that there was a "production issue" with my order and it was sent back, so will be another 5-week wait to receive it.

I have been given a $40 gift voucher for the inconvenience.
I just got the same email. Found it a bit strange that they want me to reply to the email before they hand over the voucher, guess they are hoping people miss it and they don't have to cough up.

I wonder why I got mine and others didnt

I ordered mine physically in store.

Did everyone else do their's online?
I did mine online. I suspect it's just a case of there was a dud batch that they tried to pass off as being OK or that weren't checked quality control wise properly and they were received and they've been sent back.

I find the idea amusing as an internet meme, but actually making, buying and wearing them is a bit much. Plays right into their complex that we want to be like them.
Building their entire "brand" around the Crom stuff and now this has just flat out turned me off it completely. The whole internet meme culture I find very uninteresting.

I'd say they suck for everyone, especially when you don't get crowds to buy stuff on game day.
That is true but also with a lot of people with uncertainty around their jobs clubs might realise that charging three figures for gear is no longer viable.

They're only making 100 of them.

I think it's funny, and it's a nice pisstake of how ridiculous they are.

So we received an email today about guernsey sales. The email says:
You can own your own match worn guernsey from the 2021 AFL Premiership season. Seems nice.

Yet, when you go through the link, every guernsey is listed as player signed. It mentions nothing about being worn in a game. That could be fine, but it also has the exact same description and price for guys like Newchurch and McAsey who clearly didn't wear one in an AFL game. So which is it?? Are they actually match worn or not?

Good to know their auctions are just as vague as back when I bought a Matty Wright one in 2012. Was supposed to come with COA, some people were even getting them signed. Asked for signed if possible, but definitely COA.

It came loose in a postbag. It was a 2011 guernsey, not 2012. No invoice, no COA, no extra protective packaging. At least it was definitely match worn as it had clear signs of wear and tear. Chased them up about COA but never received it.

If they're from guys like Newchurch they usually listed as "player issued", so not game worn. It's an auction though, so every guernsey starts off at $100.

Limited sizes once again, but some good savings to be had.

Looks like sh*t left over from the same sale they had last year.
