I am sure you have all seen the jumper. A leverage off the Thor movies leveraging off Marvel stadium which the Western Bulldogs are leveraging off as they wear that jumper for round 1. Its not that its awful - its that its debasing the football club.

A football jumper is the most elemental symbol of a club. Would you agree with that?

Can't they find other ways to do this income stream creation stuff? The marketing people who do these things will point to and say you don't understand. But is it fair to say its they who don't understand?

Just don't mess with a club's jumper. I don't care how many kids buy it in the short term, it cant be good in the long term.

Too true hypen Carlton are still trying to live down the light blue M&M jumper and Gary Hocking has never recovered from calling himself whiskas.

you have to be careful to protect your brand, I refuse to call Docklands marvel stadium it just sounds naff and stupid, same as the WB jumper, actually with those initials maybe a picture of Bugs bunny on the front is more appropriate.

I don’t think they should even have sponsors’ logos on them.

I mean, how does the Norse God of the Gods feel about having tacky taco company advertising on his cheek?

Lol Quasimodo, I wasn't even aware of Buddha's endorsement deal with Whiskas, but your wisdom led me to this hilarious article!!

"And St Kilda – using a then yet to be discovered clash with Carlton’s jumper as an excuse – allowed Pura Milk to assault their jumper with a yellow paintbrush in 2001." Bahaha

Ok I’ll play ...

So Carlton do Captain America
Adelaide do Iron Man
Port go Black Panther
Essendon copy Deadpool

I’ve got this funny feeling we’ll end up as Hawkeye ...

It's a hideously stupid thing.

Whoever thought that was a good idea probably blitzed marketing school and then promptly failed in dealing with reality. The first thing I would do is have them drug tested, then test their vision because somebody is not playing with the full deck.

The club wont live that down for a decade or more
Egurls Suck!

That was against a Sydney a few years ago, almost a perfect game. I think the coaches name was Lyon.

Thor type carp.....it’s sellout to tradition and history and a stupid short term money spinner. Bring back the jarrah slab see saws and lets have these kids toughen up a bit. They’ll know what thor means when they get hit in the chin by one of those.
