I personally love that more 'green' version of teal used in the Power's early days, but I can understand why they wanted to move to a more 'blue' teal given the clubs history with it. It would make more sense to stick with that one if they went with a more aquatic moniker like Sharks or Dolphins.

It (probably) won't. Castore are still making the player guernseys, Sekem just covering for the time being until properly sized Castore guernseys arrive. Well thats if your CEO isn't lying. Wouldn't be surprised if Eagles have made Castore change the stitching though.
Sekem are still making all the players gear to this day

2016 Crows guernsey with an all-gold collar. Instead the collar ended up staying the same as 2015, with the bottom/small part of the collar being navy.
Interestingly the long sleeve replicas that year had a navy collar, which makes me think the Crows flirted with a few different colourings for the collar for 2016.

I actually really dig the navy collar a lot more than the gold collar and cuffs. Hope they go back to it one day.

2007 Saints clash was originally going to have a v-neck and curvier striping going off this.
(As said on page 1 guernsey on the right was never worn as the left guernsey was voted in instead by fans in 2006)

This particular guernsey, which I'm guessing is a replica, has the v-neck still but what the players wore had the different collar.

I played Ammos in the 80s
Mero designed the chevron one iirc
That is correct, and I therefore took a keen interest in the poll on the Saints website in the early months of 2007.
With a day to go, the chevron jumper was several hundred in front of the jumpers with the cracked logo.
Then, overnight, somehow the cracked logo received over a thousand votes and jumped to the lead as time ran out.
I made some enquiries with people I knew at club level, and discovered that jumper designs are approved a year before their use.
The cracked logo jumper had been approved and manufactured before the poll was run on the website.
In 2007 Skins template had the neck bar across the collar, and in 2008 it was removed, however this also had a different sponsor than the jumper shown

:think::think::think:

This explains why the crows randomly stuck with the 2016-17 clash after the poll.......

Wonder if there's a prototype of option E somewhere?
