Club has missed out on $200K because of a jumper stuff up.

Players were meant to change jumpers at half time but only 2 did - Jack and Jacob. The one jumper was supposed to be auctioned and the other kept by the player. Without the change the players keep their jumper and the club cannot auction off the other.

What a waste....
Probably had their mind on other things, like winning flags.

At half time they would have realized that they had a big winning chance. They would have been prowling the change room itching to get back out there.

Last thing they would be thinking of would have been fund raising.

with hindsight, yes doc but 200k hardly a waste (proportionally). weve sold 25 times that in merch already. let alone for christmas and memberships next year

Not blaming the players. There should have been someone given the duty to hand the players a fresh jumper at half time.
Two hundred thousand is still a lot of money.
OER. Calling it as it is since 2004.

It is is signed

Might get it framed now

New batch of clash guernsey are due in a couple of weeks

The book is in the store. Go to the club and pick one up if you can. They are way behind in despatching online orders

You can buy the full season from Name A Game (sports delivered) for about $500, includes all h&a games and finals.

I have the entire season bar the GF already. I get given the season subscription as a b-day present every year.

gee wiz $500, is that a joke?

No wonder the club doesnt sell it as this name a day mob probably has rights to it.

so much coin. I was thinking 150 or something from JB hifi

You've misunderstood

The Name a Game season Subscription is all games in full

So it is very cheap; $500 = 25 games at around $20 bucks a game

It isn't sold by the club it is sold by "Name a Game" through Sport Delivered. YOu can go on there and buy any game from the last 40-50 years. Individual games are sold for about $35 each

Has nothing to do with the RFC = not sold through the club

I have no idea if there will some sort season highlight DVD

Im assuming we’ll get our own 2017 version of these, but I will prefer holding out for a bluray version rather than that ghetto standard definition stuff

https://www.jbhifi.com.au/movies-tv-shows/movies-tv-shows-on-sale/tv-sports/afl-western-bulldogs-2016-premiers-complete-season-collection/445667/ (full season + finals)

https://www.jbhifi.com.au/movies-tv-shows/movies-tv-shows-on-sale/tv-sports/afl-premiers-2016-western-bulldogs-victory-pack/309790/ (just finals)


There is also this. I haven’t bought it yet but it looks to have the alternative calls and it’s also bluray

still a lot to some of us WP. I perhaps went too hard early on club merchandise.

might wait around for a JB or a blu ray version as dwaino said.

is that name a game in high def by any chance?

yep the majority of the name a game DVDs are in HD

Out of this season's games I've only come across one that is in standard definition

All the others when the go in the DVD player are playing as HD
