AFL Footy jumpers are set to have players names on the back .
The AFL has had a 100 year tradition of leaving the players guernseys nameless . 2014 sees them break this tradition , and is trialling the naming process this year.
Begs the question is it for identification purposes of trial by video ? Will it will identify on field players from each other . Fans will clearly know who they are supporting or heckling , and umpires will know who to penalise !
Where will the name go ? Above the number ? Or under the sponsor ?
Historically , many sporting codes have printed the players names on the back . The British EPL ,Â and European Football Clubs , have done so for many years .
Does this mean the humble AFL football jumper , jersey , guernseyÂ , is finally coming of age ?
