Thanks for that.

I just hope it is selling at a price that the whole supporting community can afford.

A lower price product sold in greater volume can produce better returns than a higher price product sold at lower price.

Lets get the demand for this beautiful jumper up to represent the usually hidden supporters.

Most AFL sanctioned and distributed merchandise is provided in very limited distribution compared to other clubs.

Lets own this, club make it easily available, I hope they have plenty at the ground when we play doggies.

Just got the advice from the club. Sent before I had posted.

Well done.

$130 seems pretty steep I hope it doesn't discourage purchases.

As an artist I’ve got to say our jumper is a ripper. Amunda has done an amazing job and should be super proud of the work. I’m excited to get one.

But…
WTF was Port Adelaide doing? I didn’t see them trying to be supportive of emerging engineers when they built the stadium, and just get the work experience kid to build it. Sentiment is given far too much credence in the arts and cultural space. At the end of the day if more organisations supported more professional artists communities would get a better product - and be much more inclined to continue to support funding art and cultural endeavours.

It’s not the kids fault - she’s a teenager and can’t comprehend the cultural and economic reasons why what she did is wrong. Port should know better, and anyone advising them should have told them to get some professionals involved. They aren’t going to play a member of the cheer squad in a forward pocket on the weekend just because it’s a ‘good story’. Bizarre.

Apparently only small and extra large sizes left!

what a beautiful jumper - I’ve got to say the jumpers that are designed for our club for indigenous round are spectacular.

the women’s indigenous jumper this year was so good I bought my 17 year old daughter Casey Sheriffs match day jumper for her birthday....and she loves it!!

Unless you are colour blind, that is not a clash. What a joke.

To be honest though, it seems more appropriate to wear it against the Lions in our game up in the territory. 

could wear it more than once ?

Love the Indigenous jumpers each year, all clubs. The story's behind the artwork I find absolutely fascinating. I know little to nothing about aboriginal culture (which is a poor reflection on the education system in my opinion, but I don't want to turn this into a political argument)

The ability for indigenous artists to not only tell a story through a painting but fully articulate that meaning perfectly to non Indigenous people's is amazing.

With the utmost respect each year I see these jumpers and think "it just looks like dots and lines" and then you watch an explanation video and it's so obvious the meaning. 

I have no doubt that it is as clear as day the meaning to other Indigenous people's. Amazing stuff.

I guess 30,000(?) Years plus will do that.

Brilliant design. Been meaning to buy one in previous years. Will buy this one

Same here. Assume they'll auction the match-worn ones as well. 

I'm a few beers in at the pub (weekend away with the better half)...perfect time for auction bids.

Just want to buy one and have Mayzy and Kozzy sign it but all adult ones sold out

Seemingly some Youth Large still available, that may be best option.

Out of interest, what do player auctioned ones usually gone for?

Why won't New Balance crank more out, beautiful strip - looking forward to seeing it in action

Great Front Bar episode tonight with Kickett & Winmar.  Forgot how good Kickett was.  Amazing highlight reel.  Those torps on the run freakish.  Seems like a great bloke too.  What a travesty he was left out of the 93 GF by Sheeds and missed getting a cup.

I still can’t fathom how the AFL saw a clash with the bulldogs indigenous guernsey, predominant red with bits of navy blue vs predominantly royal blue with hints of red and white. Can only imagine after the ANZAC Day blunder with Pies and Bombers they’ve got skittish. 

Anyway it’ll be great to see us where it this round, and if there’s perhaps a opportunity maybe we wear it again if there’s a navy clash.

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
