Here's an updated version of the Western Bulldogs banner with their new logo.



A little surprised none of the other logos seemed to have changed in three years given how clubs lurrrrve rebranding.

(I probably should redo the whole set using whatever font you used for the other titles, but :effort: )

They should've rebranded back to Footscray imho.

(Yeah, I know they call their VFL team that, but that doesn't count.)

Oh yeah, so they have. It's kind of, well, the monogram's the same on the badge (obviously they've gone back to the old school on the jumpers), they haven't changed the look of the animal.

Do you mean the guernsey monogram? It's an excellent reinstatement but not the official logo. Or is there a logo change too?
They've put the wreath and all the other dinguses back, with a few alterations, for instance they've stuck the establishment date on the ball.

Be interesting to see what happens under the new broadcast deal. The AFL would probably like to offer streaming domestically but they also have to balance that with not pissing off their TV partners.

It'll be interesting to see if Ten dip their toe back into negotiations; last time around they opted out because they baulked at the cost I think, but they've done quite well out of airing the Big Bash over the summer apparently and seem more inclined to bid. If they went in it would probably be a joint deal, hopefully not with Nine, because while Seven does some annoying things with their broadcasts (mostly BT), they aren't as poo poo at sports broadcasting as Nine is at packaging the cricket and RL.

Although Seven's commentary is going to look pretty thin when Cometti bows out - as I speculated before, I reckon they'll probably throw some BIG money at Whately (they can get him to call the horsewhipping too) when that happens.

I'm a Raiders, Avalanche, and Suns fan. I deserve a good team in at least one sport. For real, I don't watch much rugby, so when I do, I like it to be new zealand. They're so good it's incredible to watch. It reminds me of the Soviet hockey team back in the day. So much better than anyone else, it's silly.
So good they've only ever managed to win World Cups when they host them. Even England managed to win their title away from home.

That's... a little more reasonable. They're still making a profit out of that, it's just not the total gouge it's become. That combined with BYOF at Colonial isn't a bad move though.

I've been a interstate member all the time, which is usually five games plus away members tickets to the game/s in my state. Of late, I can usually only manage to come down once or twice a year though and usually try to tie it in with some other things to do.

Sydney is an obscenely expensive city to visit with no good cheap accommodation options (I had to go on one occasion last year and that blew my travel budget for the year), at least with Melbourne I know which of the "cheap" hotels are comfortable and which ones to avoid.

I caught Drew Morphett's last call during the cricket season - he'd been made redundant by Abbott's ABC cuts I believe. Anyway, they played a career retrospective of him on Grandstand and it was brilliant.

Obviously he was a fantastic footy commentator but some of his other calls, especially the cycling in the Olympics were brilliant.

Shame he won't be on the air this season.
Yep. He'd been in broadcasting a while - he came in about the same time as Tim Lane.

I don't think he was that good at commentating cricket to be honest but when it came to football he was pretty good at conveying the mood of the game.

What about his mouth? I don't remember any of the classic Danihers looking near that derpy.

Half and half about going to Richmond-Port tomorrow, since I'm working in the morning and I'm kind of like, well, it's a practice match between two clubs that I'm sort of ehhh about. I'll see how I feel after lunch.

Should get a few there because of Richmond but because there's been quite a few other matches in the area this time around, I'm thinking 8-9 thou.

Having piked out of going to the game, I'm sort of glad it's not much of a contest. Kind of thought it'd be the other way around, though, even with it being preseason and all.

It's a near full strength Tigers versus Port under 18s. Kern has been alternating lying back on the boundary line working on his tan and wandering up to the coaches box to have a gab to the commentators. Apparently he gave his assitant the reigns and will probably crack a tinny in the next 5 minutes.

Meh I managed to deal with Kennett. Didn't like him much of course (and he seemed to take a fair amount of credit for the things Ian Dicker did) but anyway.

If the merger had gone ahead back in '96 I'm not entirely sure what I would've done but I would almost certainly not have followed the Dawks.

Hnnnn well Geelong are in that dangerous zone where they could get involved in a mid-ladder struggle, but I think if some of their younger players start taking the lead more they should do OK.

North will be thereabouts, they've probably moved ahead of Freo at least. If everything goes right for them they could go all the way although Hawthorn will remain the yardstick, Sydney will be pissed off (always a pretty effective motivator), and Port should have bags of confidence to go with their stamina.

Collingwood are going to be shithouse. Maybe mid-ladder if you're feeling generous.
