They’re wearing it today... in a home game... with black shorts. Huh.
You surprised? You're a good barometer of ********* takeover-by-graduations.

It will be an 'away' jumper, worn at Moorabbin, then most Sandy games'll be at Moorabbin. Eh, can't afford two batches of jumpers, can't produce jumpers that only get worn three times a year, just wear the Saints one all the time. Inevitably they'll barely play in Sandringham and then just become the Sandringham Saints, Moorabbin Zebras, Moorabbin Saints.

It's pretty sad tbh, these clubs should just form a breakaway VFA or something and invite a few dominant local clubs in.

Or even better, revert the VFL to a bunch of standalone teams (along with the other state leagues) and introduce an AFL D-League/AFL Reserves competition featuring every team. Play the matches before the seniors (11:30 Ressies, 2:10 Seniors for example)

Not sure how doomed the SANFL/WAFL would be given there's only one standalone AFL team in each and their player supply wouldn't be overly stretched (especially compared to now), it's the VFL that would be in the most trouble. About half the teams would be leaving, and the others that are remaining would be either stretched for players or get little to no exposure and sponsorship money

It'll doom the state leagues to being a third tier of football... Less exposure and probably less interest.
