Which moaners from the Inner City? Wests Ashfield?
Don't Wests Ashfiled own 90% of the club and have a majority on the board? I would say it could come down to a Tiger being more marketable than a Magpie?
No, the Rozelle mob. Can't rub two cents between them but want equal branding. Should've been killed off like North Sydney
Complete bollocks. AFL proves the magpie > tiger
The magpie seems to be getting larger every new jersey.
The magpie on the sleeves is bigger than the tiger on the front of the jersey.
Should be a magpie under the neds logo
The jersey is looking too busy with all those logos.
WESTS!!!! thats the problem, not the tigers, they want to be the "black" club
Just like storm is the "purple" club,
But they forget that there's no such thing as a black tiger, and that they could be the only "orange" club
LOL Collingwood didn't even register on my radar.
FYI member wise:
2020 CLUB MEMBERSHIP LADDER

3. Collingwood — 76,862 (2019 tally: 85,226 | -9.8%)
What a rubbish post.
Im not sure that would have ever mattered, tigers have been either black or white anyway, they couldn't even have a fluro nines jesery like most of the other clubs, boring old black and white magpies
Uninspiring and unimaginative tigers jerseys however I am willing to cut Steden some slack as it's their first year.
id be so happy with this as the home jersey, even with the v (prefer without). It just screams broncos and class. the 2021 home seems like someone had a good idea but didn't know what to do with it and all the white is unnecessary in the away
It’s only a matter of time before an old boys group at West’s get some sort of control of the club and push to rebrand as the Magpies.
None of the research or metrics will matter to them because they will be making the decision based totally on their emotions.
Honestly I don’t necessarily disagree with you. Too many chiefs has always been the Wests Tigers problem, so pissing one of the chiefs off probably wouldn’t be a bad thing in the long run.
But to suggest that Magpies are more marketable than Tigers is crazy, and even in the AFL Richmond is the biggest club in Melbourne.
Broncos 2021 Away and Nines Jerseys released on the ASICS Store! Interestingly the Nines Jersey has an NRL logo on it rather than a nines logo. I also thought they weren’t doing Nines in 2021.
Edit - These have since been taken down.
Rather not talk about AFL, but both Collingwood and Richmond can claim to be the bigger club depending on what metric you use.
Whilst Richmond has more members than Collingwood (helps when you win the last 2 premierships), Collingwood makes more money from membership. Collingwood also get bigger sponsors and sell more merch. TV ratings alternate between the two YoY.
Whilst Richmond is considered the bigger club now by the like of Nielsen / etc, that was a position Collingwood held until 2018.
They are both big clubs and achieve metrics that a number of NRL clubs could only ever dream of, however I don't feel like either club's choice of animal has played a huge part in that.
It's rather sad that after 20 years, Wests Tigers still don't have a solid identity, still have the fractional infighting, still play at 100 grounds, and still don't know how they should recognise (or if they should) the Balmain & Western Suburbs parts of the club.
I remember back when I first heard that Wests and Balmain were merging, I just assumed that they would drop orange from their colour scheme and have a white tiger theme.
It just makes so much sense, both old clubs would have been well represented in the brand, it makes logical sense in the context of the brand, it’s a unique twist on a very common sports brand, etc, etc.
For whatever, probably very stupid, reasons, they didn’t do that back in the day, but it’d still be the happy medium if both parties were willing to be reasonable.
Titans 2021 away jersey. Inspired by '2007'.
