The jerseys these days are designed to fit as tightly on the players as possible, to make it more difficult for the opposition to grab them.

Yeah you would think given the "big cat" synergies it would be a good move from Puma.

Why are the sleeves on the Eye of the Tiger jersey, black and grey ? would have it not made more sense for them to be black and white ???
Wests Tigers colours are Black, White & Orange. Balmain are Black & Orange. Wests Tigers are not Balmain. Please take note Wests Tigers CEO.

FFS... There's no pleasing some.

They probably could not achieve the tiger print using black and white.

I have the jersey CK, and I have to say I really like it.

To be honest CB , I don't mind the look of it - just the use of colours non existent to our club.
Then again when you see what other clubs trot out in (especially away jerseys) maybe I'm being too pedantic :)

But then you also see some clubs - very few nowadays...that dont mess with logos or colours, as it should be.

Your colours & logo are much like your name - its the clubs identity and clubs using non club colours are only caving in to designers of merch that have run out of new ideas or will go to any lengths to make a buck

While I don't necessarily dislike the Eye of the Tiger jersey I agree.

We have the best three colours and the best mascot in the league and I would recommend that we drive that image as hard as possible.

Also, and without opening up another Wests v Balmain thing - but given we are already a "combination" of colours we should try and keep it all simple imo.

And I wonder if this very different style has translated to more sales than just an awesome training shirt/trial jersey using our normal three colours?

Dont be silly CB, of course they can, they can do anything with the jerseys. Black and white shoulders would be too much for Humphreys as the ' Balmain people wont accept it ' as he says.

Black and white tiger print would not work. Our white jersey had a light shade of grey to reflect the tiger print. Would you have been happy with black? It would have looked hideous.

It would have looked like a Zebra instead of a Tiger ? Yeah I agree, but it seems the powers at be do anything to avoid a black and white dominate jersey. ANYTHING !!! They bring out a Yellow jersey having the nerve to say its the 'Eye of the Tiger' jersey colour !! What a crock of rubbish !!! How about a 'Colour of the magpie' jersey which is Black white with Orange trim. Instead of Yellow, Orange, Black, Grey and white. What a crock !!!

Every complains there's not enough white on the apparel, so the club releases a predominantly white jersey and the same people still complain.

FFS... WT can't catch a break...

CB,
All merchandise is predominately Black and Orange, most of which has no white at all. Dont confuse the words 'Apparel" with "Merchandise' and 'Jerseys'.

The jersey's aside, the merchandise is incorrect as it has the Balmain colours, not the Wests Tigers colours.

We have a white jersey because the players wanted one and the main jersey is basically a Balmain jersey. (Orange jersey, black V, Black shorts)

Go to any NRL licensed dealer and all merchandise is Black and Orange with no (or very little) white in sight. Stephen Humphreys can change this, but he wont. I rang a manufacturer of merchanise in Sydney and asked them, I rang Wests Tigers and I asked them and I rang the NRL and I asked them why and they were all blaming each other for the ommisson of the white.

To go on a statement made nearly 12 months ago by Stephen Humphreys that we are trying to get away from the Balmain / Magpies image and forge our own identity, I have emails, from 3 different manufacturers of merchandise (two of which are in China) stating that the colours of merchandise should be Black and Orange. One of the emails actually stipulates Black and Orange only and that was sent in October 2011 !!!!!!!!

So someone is instructing the people who make the merchandise that it is Black and Orange ONLY !!!!!! But no one has the ticker to admit it.

It is an utter disgrace.
