    Blood red to 1984, lighter shade of red from 1985.

    Ta. Looking at those, I'm stronger in my opinion that I prefer blood red. I also wouldn't mind seeing the sash occasionally worn as a heritage jumper, as it's rarely seen outside of Aussie rules. The Peruvian soccer team has worn a red sash. Maybe a couple of lower division Italian sides?

    Yep, blood red is much better. I find it a little odd that they would move away from that with all the history of the bloods.

    Thanks for link TS, what an interesting site. About to send it to my Port Adelaide supporting rellies in Adelaide. I didn’t know Port started with pink jumpers (in SANFL)!

    I think we have killed off the giants finals hopes. Players returning to Sydney, booking in surgery. Their position on the ladder and no return to NSW this season is a bridge too far and I think they have thrown in the towel.
