Great concept mate, but i also feel like these designs are not fantastically unique. What differs this from the tigers current kit?
Also is this alt history considering that the AFL was still formed and has most of the teams"as is" bar the SA teams?

Glenelg doesn't even have an unique song. They use the Richmond's club song.

They don't seem to have any intention in establishing an identity. It is kind of sad, to be honest.

Yeah i get that, but if everything is basically the same as what is it currently, then where is the point of difference?
Also by Tigers I was referring to Glenelg and not Richmond.

From a different perspective, I grew up in the Glenelg zone and it was a strong identity as a resident (Richmond & VFL were just a distant noise). Their other nickname "The Bays" (for Holdfast Bay) has more potential for a unique identity, but I don't see them changing. I agree with raboyle that their old yellow jumper with black V would be excellent as an away/clash jumper and provide some semblance of a unique identity.

Oh yeah, that one looks mint. Don't get me wrong though, simple colour reversals work too -- see Richmond -- but a complete departure from the norm like the black V is sometimes better than just being simple.

And didn't Glenelg have a different doing once upon a time? "A tiger for me" wasn't it?

The Magpies ended the 2000's being in the red financially and a club just about starving to death. But due to the financial and media presenting skills of David Koch along with INXS's 1987 classic hit "Never Tear Us Apart", Port Adelaide managed to survive in the SANFL

Port Adelaide will be looking to bring the SANFL title back home

The Magpies are fielding the same team the Power are playing in real life

Yes it was a Tiger for me. My favourite line was that they were dashing and gay and the pride of the Bay. LOL
They should use that again. :) ;)

How do you justify taking away more than half of Central's premierships. I waited 36 years for that first one and then to win 9 out of 12 Grand Finals was brilliant and a remarkable achievement. Also our jumper should have red cufffs and if you want a white jumper it should be the Daryl Hicks version.

The club had that white version as an away jumper in 2008 and 2009, only lasted to round 15. The players hated it and so did a lot of supporters, especially me. They only won 8/15 games wearing it. They only lost 9 games total in that time frame i.e 8 away and 1 home game and both were Premiership years.
