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?
