I'm guessing the Indigenous jumpers for this year will be pushed back to next season? Haven't heard much about what's going on with that.

The proposed Fitzroy Bulldogs merger guernsey. I'm sure some of you have seen this before but I don't think I had. It looks good but the design is definitely Fitzroy dominated.

I wonder if the proposed merger would have been more easily accepted by the Footscray supporter base if it had been the "Footscray Lions", playing out of the Western Oval and one of the horizontal stripes on the jumper had been white.

Apparently back in the 70s Kevin Sheedy saw Port Adelaide's lace-up Prison Bars and wanted Richmond to have their own version.

Can someone do a mock-up of a yellow Prison Bars in lace-up form? (With yellow collar and cuffs)


I can recall seeing a pic of Neville Roberts wearing a Richmond version of the PB's for a publicity shot in one of the Melbourne papers in 1974 or 75, and it actually looked quite good.

I wonder how it would have looked if the yellow stripes were white instead?
Also why did they not call them Fitzroy-Footscray as Woodvile-West Torrens did?

I played Ammos in the 80s
St Kilda didn't wear the purple crusader for Maddie's Match on the weekend


Apparently the jumpers didn't arrive in time.
As I understand it, ISC still gets their jumpers made in Fiji.
They probably couldn't get them on a plane coming into the country.
As for the Indigenous jumper, North have released theirs, and are for sale.

Adelaide's ISC player jumpers were made in China last season. Haven't seen one in the flesh this season so can't confirm that.
