Its still commercialising something sacrosanct that we still aren't allowed to wear.

Get the PBs on the players and then think about novelties and gimmicks.

That image looks like the Collingwood stripes anyway.
I don't really disagree, I was more pointing out that the discussion was about KFC buckets as opposed to red & white PB's for a sponsor.

I will say that the more visual PB's are with us the more accepted they become (regardless of consistent wearing of them for premiership points). Its why the idea of team photos, jumper presentations etc. hold water in the interim, much like this does. Make the PB's synonymous with us again and the argument to wearing them goes away.

When you have no soul, there's nothing to sell.

Purple striped buckets at the Big Bash in Launceston last night for the Hobart Hurricanes v Strikers game.
Exactly. That's what I was talking about.

You can imagine plenty of black and white prison bar bucket heads being worn at games. Nothing wrong with that but apparently it's denigrating our history. I assume Prison Bar Ale is out of the question too... oh wait

Not by changing them it doesn’t, it plays right into Eddie’s hands. If we’re happy to add red in for a few bucks, why not teal then? Problem solved hey. That’s all folks.

It’s just an AWFUL idea. This whole conversation is starting to remind me (in a very unsettling way) of a couple years back when people floated the idea of co-captains on here and it seemed like a joke. I didn’t think the Club could possibly be that stupid but they were and it was a disaster.

If they’ve learned anything from that experience they will not piss on another club icon. But if they do, and ignore the almost unanimous will of the members again, it would be the most disgustingly arrogant display from a club executive anywhere. If they thought the backlash was big last time lol. They’ll be praying for the sun to supernova if they do this.

Yeh, that was what I was saying. Im all for Black & White KFC buckets on the heads of kids in the crowd (which look like PB's when upside down) but at no point can it be anything other than black & white.

Its about making the PB's Port Adelaide again and the more visual we can be the better (whilst also appeasing a sponsor) but if they say do a red & white jumper they can jump.

There will be Port Adelaide branded buckets at our home games. I can tolerate my son putting one on a strikers games because it’s T20 but not keen on seeing them at the footy. Oh well.

Sorry I misread your post. I’m not sure about the bucket idea, I’d like to keep the PBs in the “hallowed turf” zone as our sacred thing, at least until we have some autonomy over them. I mean it’s not a heinous idea like the red PBs absolutely is but I’d prefer for the guernsey itself to do the heavy lifting. The team photo idea is a great one, more of that.

Absolutely. I just think it is inevitable that we get Port colour buckets at the footy now so lets make a somewhat tacky situation into a visual show of force for the PB's. Ticks off two things we are all championing for in aiding the return of the PB's and showing value to our sponsors because god knows we work hard to attract them.

Lets say the AFL don't let us wear the PBs in the crows home showdown.

Not all 7,000 - 10,000 Port supporters attending will be wearing PB's, but if 2,000+ are wearing PB styled buckets on their heads, who are the cameras more likely to focus on when Port kicks a goal?? Its about a visual impact for both Port and KFC.

Same when we play Collingwood. KFC just have to make sure their guerilla marketing division is cranked up for those games.

Literally no one is suggesting red and white prison bars.

I'm guessing that Flash of power misinterpreted my earlier post.
I'll reiterate that I was only trying to highlight the similarity, I was NOT suggesting we put red on the jumper.
