It was probably taken at the start of the year, IIRC they had jumpers with the burger logo that didn't without the Lendi logo at one stage. Maybe I'm getting mixed up, but I'm sure I remember seeing that...
The original prototype guernseys with no Lendi logo and a heat press premiers logo still used the HJ's wordmark. This is a genuine headscratcher.

You are getting mixed up, we never saw 2019 guernseys with the burger logo. The photoshoot from team photo day where similar pictures of Naitianui were taken had the long wordmark logo on the guernsey.

The more I look at this image the less it looks like a photoshop. I don't know what's going on.
The dread that ends near the top of the HU looks like it has a VERY thin layer of blank pixels around it, but maybe I'm just seeing things.

This image just throws up so many questions and zero answers. That Premiers logo is very clearly a sublaminated one, the heat press ones are a much more dark, olive brown colour, which would suggest it's either a PI or the V2 of the retail with the Lendi logo.

Just... why? Maybe we run out this week wearing new jumpers that have the buns back? What a mystery this is.

Anyone think that the club is trying to get rid of the full royal for away games now that it's worn at home? Was disappointed that we wore white shorts against the swans.

Maybe. Did seem a strange call to wear white shorts when we haven't done it in years against the Swans.

As long as the buns return, I can deal with white shorts for all away games

Nah, theres been a change to the white shorts policy this season. It seems like the away team is now always in white shorts no matter what.

Cats have been in navy shorts at home all season, and the away team in white.

We saw North, in their white Indigenous guernsey with blue shorts, host Richmond, in their black Indigenous guernsey with white shorts a few weeks ago.

I’m fine with that and I think Geelong should always were coloured shorts at home. I do think that non clashing coloured shorts should be allowed to be worn but it’s not a biggy.

I wonder if they did this to troll north who changed jumper so they always wore blue shorts at home and in doing so, sold their soulless souls. LOLNorf

Crows wore full home kit v Swans at the SCG earlier in the year.

I have an idea for the clash jumper...

How would it look if the yellow of the Eagle’s head feathers had a pattern in it like the indigenous jumper did?

Every thing else would be the same, just the feathers would change.

I am no good with photoshop etc so I wonder if anyone could whip up a quick idea of what that might look like?

Circling back, Crows are wearing white shorts and the Cats are in navy shorts tonight. Looks messy af, pretty much confirms the white shorts for all away teams rule being changed this year.

Crows @ Sydney may have been an oversight.

Yeah I noticed that too. Would’ve made way more sense to have crows full navy and cats white shorts. Think you’re right, has to be an AFL directive this year. I don’t mind it to b honest, there’s something retro about it.

White shorts are rubbish and somewhat dated with the amount of clash jumpers around.

They are really s**t when nonsensical colour combinations like tonight happen. That North v Richmond game was ridiculous as well

As I said, I am not great at photo editing and I know this looks really amateur, but after seeing this years indigenous jumper, here is a VERY ROUGH idea for the clash...

I'm fine with it. The Cats uniform is Navy Shorts at home. They shouldn't be dictated to with what shorts they wear.

Eagles just posted this to Instagram. They’ve either photoshopped this (most likely) or have made new burger guernseys and organised a photo shoot with Nicnat and shot new images (least likely).

If it is a ‘shop, they’ve done an amazing job - getting the logo under his thumb and dreds, and it doesn’t look like there was an existing HJ logo at all.
Here's the original so it's definitely a 'shop. F**k knows why they did it.

The buns was probably the original and the big one was the shopped. They would have taken the photo in the off season and hurriedly used the un-photoshopped one when the contract signing news came out.

Apparently the contract signing took the media peeps by surprise a bit, which is probably why there was the oversight of the ‘Andrew Brayshaw’ taunts on the insta

In addition to what Mike85 said, there are other shots of Naitanui from the same photo shoot and he is wearing the standard 2019 guernsey with gold AFL logo and long word mark Hungry Jack’s logo.

They were probably shopped at the time as well but they used the wrong (original) image in the recent post.

What? The original image is with the long wordmark HJ logo. There is no guernseys that exist with the gold Premiers AFL logo and HJ burger logo. The 'shopped image is the one posted on Instagram for his re-signing, with gold AFL logo and HJ burger logo.

The original photos were taken on this day, wearing this guernsey:

Anyone know why we didn’t wear the indigenous guernsey last night?? In the original article about it, it said we’d wear it round 11 against Melbourne, NAIDOC week, and round 18 against Melbourne again in the NT game.
