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That logo already looks outdated.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.

Funny video.. hilarious branding.

What's Paul Kelly doing there, favourite son of the club destined to become the Giants' fiercest rival?

I don't mind the guernsey design either, but apparently that's just the one that they'll wear next year and they'll use a different design upon entering the AFL in 2012.

Sky blue, Interference blue would have made much more sense

now to add my two cents.

i don't mind the guernsey but the nickname is horrendous. all the other nicknames in our game have their own history (and Suns is fine). the "Giants" nickname is synonymous with America and as someone said, "why don't just call them the Yankees and be done with it?"

my other issue is that WS was a bad idea to begin with. Gold Coast is fine, and has been since everyone got over "expansion shock". it's the fastest growing municipality in Australia if i'm not mistaken, and if i'm also not mistaken AFL has a better following in Bris/QLD than it does in Syd/NSW.

GWS stands for absolutely nothing. who are they representing? what the fuck is "greater western sydney"? it won't fail, because of the money that's been thrown in and because they have picked the right man in Sheedy, but i can't see them attracting a loyal fan base anytime in the near future.

Can't add much more to the GWS Dwarves discussion, since you folk have pretty much said all my thoughts on the matter.

On a different topic, a Tassie team, is Demetriou actually retarded? Seriously, a lot of what he says in this doesn't even make much sense: http://www.theage.com.au/afl/afl-new...117-17xky.html

no no, let's shoe horn teams in where they'll have to be propped up for years while we ignore a completely natural progression.

I would love for a Tassie team to enter the competition someday. It seems as obvious as the expansions into WA and SA. It doesn't have to be as big an undertaking as GWS or GC - if it's there, Tasmanians will support it, even most of those that already go for a mainland team.

Of course, instead the AFL must insist on continuing to make an ass of itself in NRL areas.

... speaking of which, bring back the Adelaide Rams!
