This could probably just be moved to the Jumper Ideas thread but seeming it's slightly on topic.

I like this idea. I'm a big fan of the idea of just doing away with white as a feature of their jumpers. it's not necessary, it's not like Carlton who need a second colour for their monogram and numbers, GWS have two unique colours that contrast well.

But I also like the centred G, so could go either way

GWS seem to be moving away from white in general, The white G this year was made alot smaller on the home jumper and the clash was made mostly orange, Wouldn't be surprised if the never surrender kit becomes the home kit next year, Not that i actually think its that good. The indiginous kit is the only kit with white but that was designed last year? I think 2020

I love the throwback red collar on the Bulldogs strip.

Considering people seem to love the Never Surrender as the Giants home jersey despite the lack of orange, could a classic old school orange collar spice it up a bit? But like... An ACTUAL collar. (Or not an actual one, either/or).

Kind of like the WSW?

The Adelaide mid-00's red clash has always been associated with floggings
I think it's inherent that most clash jumpers will become associated with losses. Teams generally don't wear clash jumpers at home, and teams are generally worse in away games. Plus being out of the norm, they tend to stick in the mind more.

Yea your right on that, they just changed the G to the middle. But I hope they will adapt on that with a full white and guernsey, orange cuffs and numbers, and a orange G.
Is wear they did also change the vividness of the orange as well i think. Footyjumpers doesn't reflect it, but merch does a bit (although this could be just the photos):

I tried to find in-game shots from 2019 and this year, but they're not 100% conclusive as i couldn't find exact same lighting conditions etc

It's just the photo, I've got a 2020 jersey and it's a light orange like the 2021 home merch picture

I don't mind the centered G as well if it was slightly larger and more prominent. The only reason I like having the G to the side is because it creates a sort of yoke design, which I'm always a sucker for.

Also the charcoal on the old jumper seemed a weird lighter nearly blueish grey unlike the charcoal like the Never Surrender jumper
It looks more like a 'German Grey' on TV than the charcoal seen on the GWS store. This would be an issue with the material and lighting.

Always thought that if the Saints won the '97 flag, they'd still be wearing the Crusader.
This 100%.

It also didn't help that the jumper cuts themselves around the time were quite boxy and made it look pretty clunky pretty quickly (this is from 1999).

I think if the recent 2017-19 clash was filled out with the full design it would look very bold (the proportions for the Riewoldt 300th one-off in 2016 were botched a little by ISC).

As well as being an excellent jumper, the candy stripe design of 2004-06 remains such a favourite for the additional reason that the 2004 and (eventually) the 2005 seasons were so enjoyable.

Just an idea I had for a black-based Crusader. Probably more suitable as a home kit.
