Probably because they told the AFL that it would be based on the royal wings, which is deemed to not clash with navy.Devils advocate for a moment.
WCE, and the AFL, would have known prior to this week that there would be a potential clash given the match-up vs Adelaide.
So why wasn't a Peril - themed design considered or designed as a back-up?
Agree with this, considering that they host the Bulldogs next week.Should've just designed an indigenous peril jumper and worn it at home next week and today, similar to St Kilda wearing a white based one for their home games. Opportunity missed.
We wore a peril guernsey at home in this one by choiceOut of interest, was tonight the first time WCE have worn the Peril vs Crows?
For non-Eagles fans, that's the special 30th year one, it was worn to celebrate our anniversary more than to prevent any particular clash against the Crows. We've only had a full-time yellow clash since the 2017 season.We wore a peril guernsey at home in this one by choice
But yeah it’s the first time we have worn this peril clash against the Crows .
