The modern AFL footy guernsey is vastly different, and provides a hard wearing, long living protection of another type. Todays version is often manufactured in China from durable, synthetic, polyester fabric. The most popular style is sleeveless and is fashioned in vivid team colours sporting sponsors logos, players names and numbers. It is fashioned to resist moisture, of the sweat variety, brought on by players on field exertions. Its ability to resist spray may be called into validity when the player is receiving some helpful advice from the coach or some side line barracking from ardent fans.
