Just as an aside, the Bears monogram doesn't mean a whole lot to me as a kid that grew up following them as it was gone from their kits about 5 years into the existence and didn't really have any great history. The V probably means more to me than anything, as well as the koala (bear) head silhouette. So I appreciate the addition of the wierd triangle BB monogram, but the bear head is probably more iconic (for me at least).Brisbane Lions

So for today's entry we're going a tiny bit more radical that yesterday's one. Right off the bat I did use El_Scorcho's updated lion, it's just such a perfect update that stays true to the Fitzroy history. As a compromise for using a different lion, I've done a few things to make the dark kit as Fitzroy-like as possible by using a redder shade of maroon, changing the cuffs to be blue and most notably bringing back Fitzroy's blue shorts. on both kits I replaced the 'BBFFC' text with the Bears and Fitzroy's monograms. The clash jumper is meant to be a homage to the Bears' final home jumper, just inverted to have a gold base. Since the Lions have included a lion on every jumper post-merger (barring heritage jumpers) I added a faint watermark of the lion as a little touch. Quite happy with what I did here trying to respect both sides of the merger as much as possible.
