    Our jumper

    Let me be the first one to pick up on this:

    I reckon we've tweaked our jumper. The hoops have been broadened.

    Probably not the most important thing to have come out of today's game (we look okay, btw. Cue in the rack after half time etc.) but I think we've broadened our hoops by a cm or so. For me, that's a winner.

    Anyone else notice that, or have I just had one too many beers to drown out a 2pt loss to Collingwood??

    You could be right Webby. The hoops were slightly lowered in 2015 compared to previous couple of seasons, but I didn't notice if they were wider.

    Re: Our jumper

    Have they gone back to how they were a couple of years ago?
    AFLW Premiers 2018




    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.

    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed. And I said "Obie, I don't think I
    Can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. " He said, "Shut up, kid.
    Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    Yep, the hoops were definitely lowered for the start of last season. They remain lowered, however I reckon this season the hoops are also a bit fatter - which looks good.

    I think the guernseys in the shops are still existing stock, but the ones the players wore yesterday have been tweaked a bit.... Or perhaps my eye was just tricked by the home jumper being combined with white shorts - something you don't often see nowadays, but something I think looks good.

    The Heritage version in 2004 remains the best one in my opinion

    TBH I'm not much a fan of it, the stripes look too low, it seems the wrong shade of blue and that red triangle looks ridiculous.

    Agree! Like the 2016 Royal Blue we had.

    Also, I would like the hoops higher up the jumper. It looks best when a bit of the number overlaps over the red hoop!

    Re: Our jumper

    The skipper looks like he's donning a size too big and stretching it downward so it may not be the most representative snap of the fit/proportions.

    I half suspect that's a photoshop job too which may skew the proportions further.

    Agree that blue is bloody lurid.

    Re: Our jumper

    My recommendations would be make the red and white stripes 25% wider and lift them a bit higher on the jumper.
    Change the blue to traditional royal blue. I think Melbourne's blue would be very close now to ours.

    I'm not sure about the red triangle, I'd leave it as blue.
