    Heard from a mate that Classic have gone bust. Wonder what that means for our merchandise? Jerseys were a fuck up this year and weren’t released until during the season.

    Someone else posted that a few weeks ago in here as well so it could be true.

    It could be a blessing for the Dogs to get out of the contract because they have been pretty disappointing.

    I don't really care who manufactures them, although I would prefer Canterbury (CCC) for obvious reasons.

    The main thing I'm glad about is that the hideous KIA logo won't be a stain on our proud jersey anymore.

    I love Canterbury, they always make quality gear and was disappointed to see us go to some low budget manufacturer.

    Hopefully this is true and we can get a better one sorted asap.

    They haven't done super hero jerseys for a couple of seasons now. I'm glad we were never involved they were so tacky but each to their own.

    Still looked better than the POS jerseys we have been flogging for years..

    our jerseys look terrible, couldnt bring myself to buy anything this year, classis is the dud of sportswear makers
    kia now teamed up with the broncos, they may not get the value they thought they would there either

    The last few years have been shocking but I thought from 2014-2017 we nailed the home jersey.

    On one hand, it sucks that employees are out of work

    On the other, there is a chance that our next kit might look slightly more presentable

    Agreed. 2014-2016 (Before Kia came onboard) were near perfect.

    I reckon our best ones will never get a connection. This is my preferred one:


    • Manufacturer - CCC
    • Sleeve - Doltone House
    • Back - Ultimate Security
    • Major Sponsor - Mack Trucks (one can only dream, their logo has a bulldog in it)

    It wasn't a good choice moving to Classic, there was no reason to move away from Canterbury.

    Having said that I did buy some A-league stuff out of Classic in the last few weeks, dirt cheap and doesn't look too bad.

    They have some bulldogs jerseys on their website at $48 at the moment.

    There was a good reason to go with Classic and that’s that they offered us more money then Canterbury.

    What type of money could we be talking, surely loose change for a club like us.

    Sometimes quality product and fans enjoying/buying a product is more important than a few dollars (to a club like us).

    Different story with struggling clubs.

    they will make more money in the long term anyway because a better product will generate more sales... I personally wasn't going to invest in the ugly kits we rolled out this season and I can only imagine there were plenty of others who felt the same

    It was a substantial increase on what Canterbury were offering. If they haven’t gone bust we are stuck with them for another 3 years too. Just because we have the Leagues Club doesn’t mean the Football Club should take low ball offers.

    100% agree, even though I saw the jersey at $48 when I was on their website recently I wouldn't consider buying one, would rather wear the old Canterbury ones.
