Yeah, I could have guessed that concept wouldn't fly with 99.9% of Port fans, was just offering my 2c worth. As a Carlton supporter, I feel we have a timeless jumper design much in the same vein as Port's PB's, but when we take to the field with our white, gold, or even light blue clash jumpers I don't see them as "desecrations". But at the same time I fully understand that we at least have the luxury of wearing our traditional jumper design at home.This misses the point entirely. We want to wear our traditional guernsey, not desecrate it. We’re not interested in compromising the design. We’ve been wearing compromises for 25 years.
We’ve already worn the original Prison Bars 5 times in the AFL. There was no need to compromise the design on any of these occasions and there’ll be no need in the future. We just want to do the same thing more often.
I'm all for Port wearing the PB's & also dislike how the V/AFL has being disrespecting the history of Australian Football outside of its own league. If it were up to me I'd let them wear their classic jumper in all home matches, bar maybe matches against Collingwood.
