Looks that way but you'd hope not. The Yellow was suitable for a lot more clashes. Having the 3 to rotate through was perfect. Red still has the "dark" appearance so doesn't truly work against the Essendon, Brisbane, St Kilda types.So we've replaced our yellow away strip with a red one?
I'd say they just went with what sold better.I really liked the yellow jumper so hopefully it's still around in some form.
Did we lose a few games in it so now it's not popular or something?
That said, If there is some benefit to releasing "new" jumpers, I'd rather us alternate the yellow and red jumpers every couple of years than feel the need to bring back the non-traditional "artistic" designs from a few years ago.
We've identified the lack of hoops was a problem, it was fixed, don't let the problem happen again.
Same with the away jumper, they put it to a poll, the three hoop design won by quite a bit right? I was really annoyed that a few years later they thought it was necassary to turn the hoops into a weak chevron with the We Fly As One logo on top of them, like we voted against similar designs in previous years.
Now the full hoops in yellow/red is even better, this is it now.
