Exactly. Stuff not being at home, you wear it when the round is on
I actually saw that some of the afl clubs wore the indigenous jersey at home the next week after indigenous round

So they have same problem

I wonder if it really sells any more jerseys

Just all 16 teams wear it

And what the f**k is retro round.? is it just a fox sports thing ??

It's not the same problem - it's compulsory for the round then they're free to wear it again by application. Even if they wore it at home later, they still wore it away in the appropriate round

Retro Round is a fox gimmick for both nrl and Afl.

I'm guessing they get to air Steelers and Bears games. Some St George, Souths Mark I, Balmain and Wests too. Laugh about moes, marvel at decent jerseys, shoulder pads, black glare smudges, toeing ahead and cigarette advertisement.

very confusing, in one week indigenous jersey, retro jersey, men of league apparel, fox sports making up their own rounds now. Dear me how did it come to this?

OH NO WHAT EVER WILL WE DO?

(This is the time last year we had Marvel Round followed by Indigenous Round, who f**king cares?)

Isn't Vitara just a type of Suzuki?

The Suzuki Vitara - it's a small SUV having shrunk with the most recent model release
It was previously an X-Trail sized SUV

Alongside the Swift, it's their best known model and one of their longest running name plates

The MoL visual brand is entirely its colours. Change that id it stops being MoL gear...
The refs are fine in the MoL colours but I just think anytime a team has different coloured socks to the rest of the kit it looks so amateurish. Just a simple logo on a jersey or socks would look alot more clean.

But not as noticeable, hence the colours of the socks.

As much as I dislike the AFL i do like the way they have a particular round and stick to it, indigenous, retro etc. The league does seem to be a bit of a shambles when it comes to their rounds.

Manly wearing this number on Sunday as part of "Golden Eagles" day. Also the 20th anniversary of their sponsorship with URM. Odd.
