No confirmation on when they'll wear it yet (confirmed that they will, just not when), but a friend bought this yesterday - Bulldogs' Multicultural jersey

Obviously the photos are taken in low-light - the blue is the normal blue on a Bulldogs jersey.
Looks like they went on google and slapped on the first flags of the world photo under a clipping mask.

Was for several years, but I'm assuming the NRL deemed it not enough of a change from the main jersey, hence the black.

Its bugging me that the dogs have the soul patch under the sponsor on some jerseys but not others. Only just saw this training jersey as well, miles better than any nines jersey they've had in the past:

They removed the soul patch as a tribute the 1995 premiership winning jersey.
The Dogs are getting KIA replacing Jaycar as front of jersey sponsor next year and there's no way its going to look as classy as it is now.

I find that hard to believe to be honest - all-blue jersey seemed quite popular to me.

Dogs white and blue V / saddle is the bomb. My fading Hyundai jersey still looks a million bucks. I know, I know...clubs have to whore themselves to sponsors, and need a 1000 jerseys a season BUT some clubs have wonderful, traditional colour/jersey combos that are perfect and pleasing on the eye. There's absolutely no need to murder their identity.

Sigh.

Continue on.

Popular, sure.

It when you don't change your home or away jersey (other than a few collar adjustments etc) for what....5-7 years? Jersey sales slow.

I don't have any figures but I'll bet anything this year's black away has sold way more than the blue away did in 2015. Sure there would be way more blue jerseys out there, but most would be pre 2015 versions.

I think they'll go away from it for a few years, then reintroduce it with a big surge in sales.

If the Dragons ever reintroduced our blood & bandages away, that we had from 2001-2005, either as an away or heritage...it would sell like hot cakes

Couldn't agree more as long as the dogs wear the current home jersey the majority of the time I can handle the dreadful nines jersey and everything else they come out with.

Pretty much nailed it - the Bulldogs are one of those clubs that wears their traditional home jersey 80% of the time or more, similar to the Dragons, Raiders and Sharks. The different combos I can handle as long as they don't go over the top. We're on the borderline now in that regard - but i still don't mind that flag jersey!

That's pretty much how I feel about any teams alternate jerseys. The odd alternate jersey is fine but when we start doing Marvel Comic's jersey's we have completely sold our soul and lost our identity.

I am not a fan of the Bulldogs multicultural jersey but I think it would be a hard to make that concept look good on a footy jersey,
