Was watching a program on Kayo a few days ago called 'The Merge', which covers the Fitzroy-Brisbane merger. During the part which detailed the attempted North Fitzroy Kangaroos merger, an old seven news clip was shown which featured a prototype jumper of some sorts? Red upper field featuring a gold lion on the upper LHS, with a white Kangaroo, blue & white stripes.



Anyone else seen much of this jumper ever before? Is it worth featuring in the Unused Footy jumpers section Mero ?

I reckon it was just a placeholder background for the TV graphics

I played Ammos in the 80s
2005 now completed.
Here's a reason each season is taking a while
This is the image for Richmond 2005

However, these are the images for 2005 with Front and Back
With Drink Drive Bloody Idiot sponsor and the 2004 numbers in White with Black outline

Then the TAC ditched Richmond and they had no Back sponsor

Then AFG became their Back sponsor

And then they changed their numbers to something you can actually read

And then there's White shorts versions of the three Black shorts images

Looks good. Is the argument for the no back sponsor in the quoted graphic (your third graphic) that this black box is not part of the design therefore shouldn't be on the graphic?

I just remember it vividly from the time that it was a really rudimentary way of covering the old sponsorship.

No, I just didn't look it up.
Thanks for the image, the revised graphic is now:

Anyone recognize this old Guernsey design?

Received in a memorabilia donation (amongst other State jumpers) from legendary VFL administrator's family. Woollen jumper with Jason's Knitting Mill tag, white with green A on front and green numbers.

Maybe an Amateurs rep Guernsey?

Probably not the right thread for this sort of query

Yep, that's definitely an Australian Amateurs representative jumper.
