    Rumour is that CCC have been told they won't be renewed for next season, instead, we will have Classic Sportswear as our on-field apparel which is a shame as I have been a big fan of CCC apparel since they came on board in 2011.

    I don't mind the retro jerseys Classic have made but I just think their on-field apparel looks poor and cheap.

    I'm hoping this is not true.

    A jersey is basically a jersey. A head, 2 sleeves.

    To me, what does it men financially?

    It’s more than just a jersey. You are aligning one brand with anothe. WTF is classic? Shite local brand? For real. What a shame in this day and age, we couldn’t land a major manufacturer.

    But Canterbury (CCC) goes so well with the Bulldogs! I don't like this move by Dib.
    My NSW blues jersey is made by Classic and it is pretty uncomfortable in comparison. Not happy!

    It's a local brand limited to Australia, we deserve a bigger brand.

    Could be worse.. could be a move back to X-Blades.. :D

    Panthers are using Classic this year. As are Titans.

    Pretty sure I recall a few ripped Titans and Panthers jerseys last year.

    I am not sure if you have noticed but since Broncos went with ISC, they have been endorsing Puma sportswear, like wise with us promoting/endorsing Adidas boots, think this is the route that clubs are going.

    To be fair, X-Blades have somewhat improved their standards over the last few years.

    Pamfers still had Asics last year, this year they have Classics and yes I have seen a fair few ripped Titans and NSW jerseys last year.

    What a fucking shit move if true, may as well just get the Best and
    Less version, same quality. Some of the few marketing decisions lately have been at the detriment of our brand visually. Went from beautifully blended blue Jaycar to fucking bulls-eyes red Kia, ffs I understand the $$$ part but fucked if I’m gonna advertise something as ugly as that.

    It’s also rumoured it’s the biggest clothing deal in NRL history. That’s huge if true.

    I have my doubts a tiny company like this could do the biggest clothing deal in NRL history. That's more election propaganda from people trying to get elected again.

    If they just replicate this exact design onto a new jersey then i can live with the change.

    Yeah but we are aligning with a low standard brand... when two businesses come together, they need to be the same level. We are an elite sporting team, we should be with ISC, Nike, Adidas etc. they are the premium brands. We are diminishing our brand by aligning with a company which is obviously poor. There are so many opportunities to arise fr9m partnering up with premium, global brands, which we won’t have access to. No one wants to wear ‘classic’. Everyone wants to wear Nike
