People who don't properly tag albums are made of all kinds of epic phail.

As I'm sure you also discovered, Bonnie, if you got Swervedriver's Raise off Sordo.

Hey, Ian, you were praising the Aussie rugby league shirts last night, weren't you?

After seeing the highlights of the game on the news tonight, all I want to know is: why?

Well, it was bland and not very Australian.

It was a replica of the jersey the first Australian team wore against New Zealand when one of the first International league game was played on May 9, 1908.

Which i also why they played at the SCG, instead of the vastly superior (for football) SFS.

Incidentally, that was why New Zealand wore the All Blacks look-a-like jersey instead of the traditional white V.

Ahh. Looks better without the V if you ask me.

Well, their first jersey was damn bland and unimaginative! Looks like somebody just went to a Target and bought a bunch of polo shirts for the guys to wear or something. The reason I say that is because I have a somewhat similar polo shirt in my wardrobe!

I can't really decide. I like the fully black one for a bunch of reasons, but the really traditional one with the white V is brilliant.

I've always liked that Rep teams from provinces and cities in New Zealand had the exact same design - the same style V - but instead of black the jersey was the predominant colour of the rep teams area.

Uniformity

It's a matter of taste, i'm not the only one who loves it out of the league fans i know.

I think those polo shirt guys may have copied league

That is cool. What is the origin of the V anyway?

I find horizontal stripes more often than not don't tend to work too well. And it was just bloody weird seeing Australia in something other than green and gold.

By the way, I don't suppose you've seen anything from the Hurricanes vs Force game in the Super 14? The try the Force scored was so not a try.

That's a great question. I have no idea. I just know it's very common in league circles. I should ask some time.
