Jumper change rumour...again!

Post by darley16 on Wed Dec 22, 2010 12:17 pm

It seems the club may be looking to change our famous jumper design, this has come up this time of the year for the past 3-4 years, why?
Message to club/board: LEAVE OUR FAMOUS GURNSEY DESIGN UNCHANGED!!!!!!!!!!
If there are to be changes let the members vote otherwise forget it, this should not be thrust upon us. Look at disasters (and waste of money) of Westies, North, Sturt, Norwood away jumpers, generally despised by the supporters, horrible to the eye and disrespectful to the history of the club. Grand old clubs like Port Magpies, Collingwood etc don't mess with their jumpers and nor should we.

Ive always backed an alternative strip so long as it has heritage value!
An old design from the past shows some tradition,but a new crappy design can go out with the garbage!
lets get the on field side of things working well first!plenty to do on that front!!

I am all for having an alternate strip, times change and so must we.

All I hope is that if it is changed, they dont put that crappy looking Panthers head on it.

Very concerned that they are going to announce a Guernsey fully white with the Navy Blue S A on the front.

I would much rather a return to the style of SA that we had in the 1970-80s, yet think that is unlikely!

Agree with Panther Magic if we have to have one, lets get our Geelong styled heritage Guernsey out at the same time, then those in the club that want an alternate strip get their wish and at the same time the history of the club is preserved instead of being stuffed around with!

I agree - love our current jumper and hope it never goes, but if we have to wear something to differentiate from some opponents (especially under lights), a few ties a year, so be it. I'd support the inverse of the current strip.

I think the Geelong hooped style we had in the 1800/90's looks great....bit like the Geelong one of today Very Happy

Just everyone will have an opinion on this......as long as we win games its not a issue with me. I think a new /modern jumper might get in the youth of the area on board - if it looks good to the kids they will want to wear it.

I am personally against any change from our current jumper. If however we need to where an alternate strip for clashes ie night games I would prefer somthing similar to the current geelong jumper-which is similar to a jumper worn by south players many years ago.

The inverse version of our current jumper would be a great way to go. Maybe we could just run out as skins then if people can't agree.. ha ha

Agreed, agreed, agreed!
I hate seeing tradition thrown out the window for the sake of a 'modern strip'.
Reverse of current colours or the hooped design would make Choaty a happy Southie.

..or of course you could just leave it... Laughing

personally i love our jumper the last 45 years i think our percentage of wins would be lucky to be 20 percent i just want us to win more games in any jumper maybe a new jumper might create a better vision and create more supporters whu knows i just want us to be succesfull in my life time

In spite of my concerns re any change to our jumper the alternative strips as per safc.com.au are good. Particularly the the one with the blue shorts (Nick Liddle model) the white shorts one (Crabby model) give a washed out dull look. By sticking with our wonderful jumper design and with the inclusion of the hooped sox (great to see them back) it's a worthy alternative.

I'm a bit of a traditionalist, love the old guernsey but I think Nick Liddles jumper and dark shorts with the hooped socks looks pretty good.

Is there still a convention/rule that away teams wear white shorts?

Away strip

Post by roger ramjet on Sun Feb 13, 2011 9:13 pm

I think the new strip for clash games looks great . I think its about time. It might be for only a few games but i think its a kick in the right direction . Arrow I also feel that the hooped sox make them look a liddle bigger !

If it wins us games then WGAF what jumper and sox we use

I do like having an away jumper and if the club chooses it to be the light one and we win who really cares.

In fact if we win a GF in the white one and don't make the finals in the dark one, I doubt if anyone will be too upset.

both alternative strips look pretty good, but the blue shorts are definately the go!
I have no problems with them at all!
Now to win games!!!!
