Where the hell did you find that atrocious looking Hawthorn jumper? Yeah, our jumper looks atrocious at the best of times but having a brown back panel is just wrong.

Still, it beats this from 1995 preseason

I only realised when I was watching Sky Sports News yesterday when Surrey's Chairman was talking about Graeme Smith signing for them and the Bulldogs players were training behind, and it barely got a mention.
I dont think having bigger teams play would make a difference in the UK. I doubt not many people will notice over there that Port and the Bulldogs arent as big as a Collingwood or Carlton.

That is hideous. I can't believe they went ahead and made that.

The jumper I found was just by googling 'Hawthorn Adidas Jumper 2013'. It was the first result and only one. I think it looks okay. If it's genuine I don't know.

True but no one knows anyway. The advertising has been non-existent. Well it has been up north. There's been nothing on TV at all or on any of the main sporting websites. It might've been marketed in London but I don't know. Had it been a big team I would've gone down there. Hell I paid the best part of £2k to go to Melbourne to see 3 games, although that wasn't the main reason but a big part.

Any AFL fans over here who were aware of the game beforehand I'm sure would've jumped at the chance to go watch a Carlton or North even. Bulldogs & Port though?

Offical.

hawthornfc.com.au is excited to reveal to fans the Club's 2013 adidas home playing kit to be worn throughout next year's season.

The new adidas guernsey features new fitted style jumpers designed with world leading technologies to help players move more freely and stay cooler.

On the front, the Hawthorn logo is embossed into the guernsey.

The Hawthorn theme song also features on the jumper, written on the inside of the bottom hemline.

New for next season too, adidas will supply the Hawks with an away guernsey (to be revealed at a later date), as well as a white clash guernsey to be worn in 2013.

Another of the Club's new sponsors, iiNet will feature on the back of the guernsey, with Tasmania remaining at the front.

2013 home adidas adult guernsey are available for pre-order from HawksNest Online now. The guernsey will be available in-store mid-December 2012.

Hawthorn guernsey looks great without the white panel on the back.

Will look even better if it has brown numbers.

The white panel was hideous. I can't wait to see the official away & clash jumpers they're revealing soon. I still can't get over the prices of those and the media, training shirts in comparison to ours over here.

It's the same with football (world game) shirts too, it is cheaper for me to buy one on the net with a name and number on the back than to buy a plain one in a store.
