Just wish the shop would sell long sleeves

I'll put in a starting bid of Adem Yze and let the rest bid up from there.

In 2017 Jayden Hunt wore the long sleeve against GWS in Canberra.

Chris Dawes wore them in a night game a few season's ago. I think we won. I remember Mitch Clark wore them too.

But only in the first half.

Remember thinking at the time how rare it was to see an MFC player in long sleeves. Only for him to revert to sleeveless after half time.

He had sleeves even wearing a standard jumper.

My memory may not be as good as it used to be.  But, seems to me that, when I was a kid back in the early 60s, the long-sleeved jumper was the norm, with the sleeveless variety being the rarity...

I always found it ironic that when Yze wore the long sleeve he'd roll the sleeves up. I'd like to see a revival of the long sleeve though, even potentially for pre-season a rugby style top.

I'm stoked with our home and away jumpers this year, only thing I would change it to implement the Zurich sponsorship better so it doesn't look like a iron on patch

Barrie I think your memory is playing tricks.

You look at most of the team photos of this era most players wore sleeveless jumpers or should I say guernseys.

There were always a couple of players who preferred the long sleeves, blokes like Ian Ridley, Geoff Tunbridge and Doc Roet, but the majority opted for sleeveless. 

However, on a wet or muddy day many footballers opted for the long sleeves in keeping with coaching advice in this era.

Maybe it was just the set of jumpers used by the Sale High School Under 16s team!  Pretty sure they were pretty much all long sleeved!  LOL

Sorry, but all of the above are awful

Sorry but all of them look like training jumpers. Agreed SWYL.
