Cheers. Anyone know what the WAFL ones are going to look like?
I imagine they’ll have the front numbers where the AFL logo sits, and the WAFL logo under the manufacturers logo in the middle (not sure if it will be ISC or Sekem, assume it will be Sekem). Might see a few extra sponsors on the left side under HJs but I doubt it.

I love the current Jumpers but part of me wish that they made the Peril our away instead of clash. It's just too majestic to be worn 3-4 times a season. How sexy would it be with royal short against the swans/suns away?
Nah I reckon the best aesthetic is us in full royal vs Gold Coast during the day.

Nah much prefer us in Royal at all costs. What I'd like to see is one home night game in theGold guernsey and royal shorts

They’ve missed a trick for many years now by not using the yellow for the dig deep game. Might happen this year with the sponsorship changes (in the past or was always SGIO on the front at home, and with the yellow clash being away sponsored, reckon there was some issues with using at a home game) that’s my guess anyway, could change this year with HJs on the front across both guernseys

against which team do you think would look nest? Sydney with red shorts?
Probably not sydney red and yellow is a bit too much for me. Without looking at who were playing at home I’d go with a team with a darker colour like Carlton, Collingwood, Geelong, Port or north (if they wore they’re traditional white jumper)

Personally I don’t like wearing it against the tigs

Yeh I've been saying the same to them every year - you should tweet & email this to the club. Home/Away sponsor reversal is definitely no longer an issue.

Even if they don't want to use a 'special jumper', they should at least wear the yellow (with blue shorts) without the extra logo to highlight the round.

Regarding yellow as Away - I agree with most people above, much prefer Yellow as Clash only. Wearing the same jumper when ever possible strengthens the Eagles brand. The current Home & Clash set up is perfect. We have the best jumper - should wear it when ever we can (clashes and special occasions excepted).

I've sent the club an email with that mock-up attached explaining that the Dig Deep guernsey would double as a way to increase awareness about the Dig Deep campaign we do every year as well as giving fans an opportunity to see our original strip (gold jumper, royal shorts) wheeled out once a year.

Chances are nothing will come of it but hey, if you don't ask you don't receive.
