It is a much feted victory, a long time in the making, as its been thirty seven years since the Tigers last Premiership. A fairytale win, akin to the Western Bulldogs 2016 great victory over the marauding Sydney Swans. A repeating tale of underdog Victorian team wins against much favoured Interstate rival.

The crows gallant in defeat will return to  Adelaide minus the holy grail, the 2017 Premiership Cup, as this year it remains firmly entrenched in the local Victorian hands.

Can they pull off the fairytale win after a 37 year drought between flags and a 35 year wait for a Grand Final appearance for the much loved local Victorian team. Passions are running high.

For Richmond this means a yellow jumper with black sash which has made many Tigers fans irate. As founding members of the AFL Competition many believe they should wear their traditional strip and the Crows their away one.

The Red and Black Bombers Guernsey

Friday, December 18th, 2015

In 2010 the AFL informed the Bombers they needed a clash strip different to their traditional team colours of red and black . The club opted for red, black and grey. The grey came from the background of their logo and was deemed as a heritage strip by the Club. In 2013 the AFL decided the Bombers could revert to their traditional strip of red and black for all matches.

The Bombers fans know their team are always wearing red and black football jumpers, jerseys, guernseys. These colours are the traditional team colours of the Club, dating from 1896, when they  joined the VFL, which later became the AFL.

Will the red, black and grey footy jumpers, jerseys, guernseys become collectors items? Probably. Time will tell.
