still think black numbers on white background looks far better than the above of white numbers on black background.

Especially live it’s harder to pick up; but I’ll get over it, maybe... one day.

Yes, I know! That's why I "captured" how it looked (rookie list) a few minutes back, because I suspected it might all change again.
Do you recall this happening last year? Or previous year?

I have a feeling I’ve seen slight “backwards forwards” of the player profiles in the past.
As you say, they working on it, so maybe they prepare the “new” profile set it all up then place in in their spots.

I do know player photo day is usually closer to the season proper start than summer training start.

I definitely recall the same thing happening in the past, last year at least I'd say. There are likely to be posts about it in similar threads from previous years.

I don't understand these kids having no sense of romance or history.

Why wouldn't you want your dad's number is your dad was a revered figure?

Like...if you're going ot have the gumption to "make a new number your own" you better sure as shit be good enough to do it. OTherwise, get with the program and take your dad's old number.

Maybe he is honouring his dad, Craig..... :eek:

Think about it. Laterally.



Only joking folks.

Maybe they want to be seen as their own player? God knows the huge expectations on Darcy Moore because everyone is expecting him to be the next Peter. No wonder he was considering pissing off to a club where there isn't so much scrutiny all the time. Bad enough just being a random player at Collingwood when it comes to external pressure, add to that the pressure that comes with being a F/S.

If Josh Daicos becomes a serviceable player but not a goalsneak like his dad, idiot supporters inevitably see him as a failure rather than just a decent player. The surname can be a curse at times.

Surnames can be cross to bear.

It does have advantages.

It makes passage to the club they likely barrack for easier.

Also if a player is line ball in being draftable the surname (genetics) can swing the deal.
Maybe Josh Daicos and the Brown boys don’t get picked or only as rookies if they were from the Smith family?

I love the whole F&S tradition, embrace it, I say. The only one to do it was Darcy

I think Darcy can handle it and FWIW Josh Daicos is a talent in his own right.

Peter Daicos was a freak in front of goal but some of his best work was done in the middle.

I think you’ll find Travis had a history of being in 32 or wanting that pre his colllingwood days.

I think he liked it being at least close to his dads 33.
Or it could’ve just been because Cam had 33, Jason wore 34 when he was at the Pies. But either way they all wanted to try and wear a number linked to there dad
