Ahhh. Yeah that makes sense
Still looks shit though
Tighter jerseys and more logos make it a difficult proposition. I'm guessing that's why they moved away from them, its just too hard to fit them in and make them look good.
Junior club socks .. has f**king hairs on it.. hate hate hate it
I agree that clubs are going for classic looks - what I was disputing was your absurd proposition that clubs be somehow forced to wear one jersey for the opening month of the competition.
It's a stupid suggestion ♂️
Thought all the jerseys looked great this round.
- Dragons vs Broncos...both jerseys on point
- Knights vs Manly... 10/10 both. Heritage jersey was a nice touch to usher in a (hopeful) return to success
- Cowboys vs Sharks...probably the one dud game. Cowboys was bad, although not as bad during the game as what it looks straight up. Sharks was ok. Just a bit visually dull.
- Tigers vs Roosters...both very good. Good contrast
- Souths vs Warriors, thought warriors jersey actually looked good. Nice matchup
- Storm vs Dogs: storm 10/10, Bulldogs looked a bit stupid but during the game the silly template wasn’t THAT noticeable
- Panthers vs Eels looked fantastic. The gold jerseys looked mint
- Raiders vs titans: again, titans didn’t look as bad in game mode. The contrast was excellent, very pleasing game on the eye
Overall an excellent round of jerseys
That's fine. I'll qualify that as wearing most of the season barring one or two theme rounds. Your reaction is over the top. Surely you get the gist of the idea. The wearing of the main jumper on a consistent basis gains better recognition and doesn't confuse fans as much. Thats it. Nothing more nothing less!
I believe its counterproductive for fanbase loyalty and the universal recognition of a team's appearance. Maybe one or two feature jumpers in a season but that should be it. Way too many variations which confuses and pees off most existing fans and baffles new or potential new fans.
Do the Titans do the junior sock thing more than any other team?
f**king annoys the f**k out of me, especially when their is no promotion beforehand to say what and why they are doing.
Why don't ladbrokes sponsor the juniour Rd on gc and piss off their logo .for the name of the players juniour club for one week
The socks don't mean anything if they don't tell you what teams they are ??
Nah, Tigers do it as well. And a blue sock charity week usually. Not a fan, id rather see them wear the badge of their junior club on the sleeve.
Would the first 1-2 weeks without special designs be absurd?
Whatever the reason....why why why would they opt to do this in round 1?? I just don't understand.
The junior sock thing is pointless.
I don't think Melbourne were deliberately trying to do a heritage jersey with their current design. But here is how the bolts would have looked.
Despite the absence of gold, I really liked the 2015 Storm "Socceroos" jersey.
If it gets kids interested in playing for their local junior club it can't hurt
Well, unless they point out which clubs are represented by which socks, and then kids happen to be watching when they do this, and make the connection, then I would say it will have sweet FA impact on getting kids interested in playing League. More likely it has the effect of making the sport look second rate.
I missed most of last nights game but previously I know when Vossy has been calling he's pointed them out. Given some of the muppets Fox had calling games this weekend I'm not surprised if they didn't mention it.
Do you really think the club gives THAT much of a shit?
Telling players to go scrounging through their draws for old socks is not the same as embroiding different badges on each players jumper.
You are asking them to jump from "totally half-assed" to "weeks of preparation". THis is the NRL, its not gonna happen...
If the Titans can do junior jester socks and the green socks for tree week then can work overtime and do a casper badge for the Don dammit! Up the Ghosts,
