Remember how we learned Puma's quality control at Hawthorn in 2004 was pretty poor? Upside-down logos and the like?
Here's Sam Mitchell wearing a sponsorless guernsey late in the season. I don't think he had an aversion to a British bank.
Good spot. Also means he had a different sponsor on the back, with just the generic Mercedes Benz Vans logo.Without wanting to bump an old thread (https://www.bigfooty.com/forum/threads/puma-and-the-adelaide-collar-situation-collargate.1062854/), I noticed Bontempelli wore a 2018 jumper (pre collar triangle) a few weeks ago in Ballarat - he's with 1st year player Bailey Smith here. Mustn't have had any 2019 longies available.
Pretty poor on Essendon’s part that they didn’t have any un numbered spares that they could have prepared for him at the last minute.

Can you elaborate at all?
If the AFL are keen on having a big slice of the pie is there a possibility that they're looking at following the NFL/NBA/NHL/MLB/BBL/AFLW model of having a league-wide manufacturer deal?
Because they own all of the teams and their licenses they'd be able to implement the deal (like with the AFLW), but the problem would be convincing the clubs to dump their current manufacturers. Wouldn't surprise me if they went down that path with Cotton On, seeing as they've got the AFLW, the Cats, and have started releasing licensed AFL merchandise
Probably because he was playing in a longie I guessPretty poor on Essendon’s part that they didn’t have any un numbered spares that they could have prepared for him at the last minute.
