    In fairness the last few jerseys Tyrone have had have been spot on. White and Red you would think is an easy jersey to make but you'd be surprised how many counties **** it up, ie Cork.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,318 ✭✭✭henke


    Tyrone back in red shorts is good to see.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,236 ✭✭✭Dr. Kenneth Noisewater


    Apparently a new Roscommon jersey on the way, the current one with the map on the back that a lot of people didn't like, but served us well, has been on the go for 3 years now.

    If they have any sense at all, they'll have it out for Christmas, although the lack of publicity around it suggests that it won't be, which would be a pity considering the feel good factor in the county after winning Connacht.

    Down jersey to be revealed later today.

    That Waterford jersey is definitely the best Azzuri have ever produced. Very, very nice. Down jersey is unfortunately fairly ordinary. Like it’s a lovely jersey, like most O’Neills ones, but just a bit boring.

    New Antrim Jersey is simple, but very tidy. A solid jersey.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,830 ✭✭✭statto25


    Another very plain and simple design. All the jerseys released so far bar the Kilkenny one have been very safe. All nice jerseys but nothing spectacular. O'neills have really stepped up in the design stakes in the last 3 or 4 years and some of their club kits are really nice so not sure why the county kits don't follow the same trait.

    I'm fine with keeping county jerseys simple when you see some of the abominations that have been unleashed by listening to designers who wanted to be clever

    the worst ones were the crisp logoes. I mean how could you take a team seriously that had a one foot Mr. Tayto on it :) the Tyrone Honky Dorys one was horrendous too, No wonder no one bought them!

    Ah im not even on about the sponsors, though that reminds me when Dublin had that red vodafone logo on their chest one of my country cousins got great mileage out of calling us the sacred hearts. :pac:

    We’re going into our 27/28 year of the same sponsor.😞

    Improvement on the last one. Looks maybe inspired by the 1992 jersey. Blue KN sponsor again does it no favours.

    I remember both teams playing against each other was like the battle of the crisp.

    Me and the aul lad refused to buy the Vodafone one,We thought the logo was more like the blood transfusion service logo.
    Was in O Neills last week staff said new Dubs jersey to be out next year.

    Sponsors front and back isn't great


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,665 ✭✭✭Bonniedog


    The sponsor's logo needs to fit with the county colours. Meath and Tyrone were at extreme end, with Dublin's vodaphone somewhere in between, although it wasn't too obtrusive.

    I seem to recall Wexford having some ghastly rigout a few years back too.

    It is counter productive anyway, because I can hardly ever recall seeing a Meath or Tyrone supporter in one of the crisp jerseys, so they are losing out on shirt sales if they go over the top.

    As for sponsors on back, I agree. I did like Tipp having a discreet Dog's Trust on the back a few years back.

    I agree. The GAA should enforce stricter rules on sponsorship. I'll likely hold on to my 2014 Donegal jersey instead of getting a new one primarily due to the sponsor. If we must have a second sponsor I think rules should state the size is a bit smaller too that it is not so intrusive. Also, I think Dun na nGall printed on the back of the jersey twice is complete overkill, in addition to the second sponsor and there is also an embossed crest there. Once would be sufficient. Don't know how anyone from County board or O'Neill's cant see that cleaner design is usually better. A nice jersey butchered by a few details.

    In a climate where lucrative sponsors are very hard to come by, the sponsor will always dictate what goes on the jersey whether aesthetically pleasing for supporters or not. They have paid their money and will want to advertise their company using their primary logo.

    That is unfortunately true. It is a pity though.

    Prime example being the red Avonmore logo on the black & amber Kilkenny jersey

    It actually doesn't look that bad in fairness. Red, black and yellow go together. Plus the ubiquity of seeing the KK jersey has helped it.

    What's holding back th KK jersey is the short stripes. WTF loike.
