BULLDOGS REVEAL WORST JUMPER IN THE HISTORY OF THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE
The Western Bulldogs have unveiled the most horrible jumper in the history of Australian Rules, a fair effort, and have weirdly tried to promote it as a positive.
The jumper, a tie in with the Marvel character Thor, has shown that the Hawthorn Football Club hadn’t plumped the depths of jumper design as previously thought.
A spokesperson for the Western Bulldogs said the jumper, which will, unfortunately, be worn for real in round one, was a shameless cash grab and had netted the club $17.
“We think fans will embrace this monstrosity, after all, it’s not like Bulldogs supporters aren’t some of the most passionate fans around who have fought and bled to keep this community club around for decades. The jumper means nothing to them.”
“Sure, have pride in the jumper but also have pride in the Disney Corporation and its subsidiary entertainment properties.”
The AFL said it welcomed the further commercialisation of the game, with a source at AFL house calling for other entertainment tie ins.
“A Saw movie franchise tie in is in the works, and we’re also keen to have a jumper that celebrates the AFL’s close relationship with pokie machines.”
The Thor jumper is being offered for sale to fans in perhaps the most optimistic move since the AFL thought a shortened version of the game would be popular."
I used to be embarrassed every time the "Woof, Woof, Woof" after a goal crap from our marketing department went off at our games, but this raises the marketing department crapness bar to a cringe-level above even that.
Jumper, Name of the club, trying to claim Ballarat as our base, all of them in the name of Marketing.
I support none of the above as none actually work outside of the marketing babble (bubble). Interesting those clubs that market their history, are proud of what they stand for actually achieve more than we do
Just one of the joys of supporting the club, which I will though our marketing has been a joke for so many years it is laughable.
Hope we are getting a heap of money for this
Thankfully, the premiership was the greatest marketing boon of all time and has put us in a strong financial position
Gee the opinions on here are representative of the boring mentality and stubbornness of AFL supporters when it comes to markting the game. That is, by failing to move with the times the game has basically had zero marketing over the past 30 years of the football professionalisation and this is reflected by the number of kids wearing soccer and basketball jerseys rather than afl kits.
Does anyone watch the NBA? There are themed uniforms every second week ffs, and people here are sooking it up big time because we are doing it once!
I'm sure the kids in the crowd will be beside themselves with excitement with the kit, and this will be multiplied tenfold if Thor himself makes an appearance.
Its a bit of fun. Nobody is being disrepected or any of the other rubbish claims on here or in the media.
Are they making cash from the deal, or from the supporters? Check out the price!!!!

Yep some of these blokes have no problem playing games in a completely different city that has nothing to doo with us but wearing a different junper(which we have had so many the last 30 years I lost count) is an issue
And then losing enthusiasm to go to the game at all!!!!!
