Fuck you Bomber "burnt out" Thompson.

Yeah you may have coached us to two flags but your demeanour for much of this year was shithouse and the way you have ended your association with Geelong is nothing short of disgraceful.

Cats to beat Dons by 10 goals next year.

Don't worry, he'll always be Bomber "eating sandwich while cats thrash eagles" Thompson to me.

I understand your anger, I'd be doing it if Woosha did something like this (though he has no other club allegiances) but I'm sure you'll find it in your heart to forgive him. I mean, he's Bomber.

I would say "sorry, Danny", but it'd be with a grin on my face.

Pretty much. :/

That logo already looks outdated.

Why is the AFL so afraid of using green?

haha, pretty spot on.

What a disastrous branding exercise. What were they thinking? It's hard enough to get Sydneysiders interested in the sport, let alone this grotesque and irrelevant brand that will surely struggle to resonate with the market they are trying to target.

Giants? Why?

The link between the club's colours of charcoal and orange and the natural heritage of Western Sydney is tenuous, and probably meaningless to West Sydneysiders.

And Blue is the away strip? A completely different colour. Just wear sky blue as the dominant colour, at least it's already got an established link with NSW sport, as well as being unused in AFL.

Strange decisions on the part of the club's founders.

I think I saw that logo on the side of a high speed train from the 1930s.

apt. they should have called themselves rovers or wanderers....although the a-league team beat them to it. we're western sydney, we're canberra, we're two different grounds at homebush bay, we're blacktown, we're darwin...

meanwhile...

god, what a disaster! at 1:52 they show highlights of the big time - by showing fremantle. it's also interesting they deliberately target groups not interested in football - suits, hot uni chicks, muslims and definite westies.

and come on, if you're going to claim western sydney, isn't it a bit of a cheat to still show the harbour bridge, regardless of the direction the camera faces?


meanwhile, i actually do like the strip. it's just for the wrong team in the wrong city in the wrong state.

Christ, that's a heapashit. What are they trying to prove by having a bunch of suits cross their arms as soon as the camera aims in on them? And if the vast majority of Sikhs and Muslims aren't interested in footy here or in Melbourne, they sure as hell won't be in WS... shit, sorry, GWS.

I also don't mind the colours and the strip (even if the logo's heinous and I don't like having two new clubs following the single flat colour with a central logo guernsey scheme - you need a really timeless decoration like Carlton's to make that work) - I just see them for an ACT or NT club instead.

Also gotta wonder if they only decided on this after SF won the World Series. I don't see how the Gold Coast can't be the Sharks but GWS can practically steal the identity of a far more famous sporting club.
