how do we pronounce narrm given the double r

is it NARM  (single syllable)

or NAR-R(u)M  (2 syllables)

or something else

well, listening to the official launch video it would seem the pronunciation is NARM as a single syllable with a longish R

Yet another reason to be proud of and love this club.

 

as for the jumper, I actually hope that this year we wear last year’s indigenous jumper is worn in the Alice Springs game, as we were denied it last year and it was designed by a local artist and friend, I think it would be a great gesture to wear this brilliant jumper on the oval across the road from her daughter’s school.

Great initiative. I know the reaction of some but hope they keep it to themselves.

Not my favourite of the alternative jumpers but watching that video explains why - it’s telling a pretty involved story of the club, the land, the G, and the links between all three. It’s going to be busy.

I like this. I reckon our club has taken real steps in progressing along a path of reconciliation.

Not sure about the jumper though. Looks a bit too much like the Bulldogs’ Captain America jumper from a few years back. 🫤

The concept and naming is a good idea but much going on there on the jumper. I prefer something more akin to the traditional elegant grace and simplicity of indigenous art. Reminds me of the old dreaded Schwabovian shield logo from the dark days. And why does the oversized bird of prey remind me too much of Meth Coke and the Dorks?

Very happy about this. Solid move by the club. My Roos-supporting mate was very quick to tell me how impressed he was as well, and it’s always a good feeling to back a club who impress other supporters, on and off the field. 
 
He was also asking if this meant the Roos were allowed to go with “North Narrm”.

I agree with all that think the Narrm Dees footy club rebranding is a great idea. Gees I couldn't be prouder of our club.

Hopefully the Kangaroos take on North Narrm for the round, also has a nice ring to it. 

Hey, we don’t want to get involved in aNarrms race!

Brilliant!!! I’m sure we have cheer squad members on here (even if they’re “noms” only @WalkingCivilWar ) I think it’s a great initiative to get behind in the banner and in the crowd.

Narrm Army or Narrmy Army. We are Narrm.

As of this morning it’s all official, Cards!
Not sure how the OGs would feel about someone who’s been a member for 5 minutes putting forth such a big proposal. Hashtag sit down noob.

I actually love this.

Me too.

I'd hope we could get it ticked off (that Naarmy doesn't change the meaning some way), but if all clear it would make me proud to roll this into our regular cheer squad chants.

Relieved to have only seen a couple of somewhat negative posts on social media from our fanbase. Previously you'd see some "WIN A FLAG then do A/B/C"  type behavior , some real suspect individuals on the internet. 

Won't be buying the jumper (still need to get last year's signed and framed) but hoping for some further Narrm FC products. 

TBF to the club, we did win a flag. Does that mean we can do whatever we want now?

I personally can’t see this happening. It would likely be dismissed on account of being seen as making light of a profoundly important issue. There’s a time and a place for sh*ts n giggles, and this isn’t one of them, imvho.

Maybe put some more on sale too. I missed out last year and thought it was the best ever.

In fact, the 2021 one was such a popular design I wish the club would consider a year-round indigenous range using that design - not just jumpers, other stuff too, maybe even with the "Narrm" branding on it (with the artist's agreement, of course). I bet they'd sell like hotcakes. And then a new jumper design each year.

Should definitely produce more, will sell well at the game in Mparntwe

Love this initiative and love that Matthew Whelan was so involved.  Anyone who doesn’t like the jumper design has to do tackle work with Wheels 😂

Jake Lever on bike and walking up n down stairs, yelling out as he does. Melky copped a niggle so ran laps but

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
