I agree.

And the orange jersey should be worn with white shorts.
Wests Tigers colours are Black, White & Orange. Balmain are Black & Orange. Wests Tigers are not Balmain. Please take note Wests Tigers CEO.

I assume you previously supported Balmain so I hate to break this to you, but you have already lost your identity. It occurred late in 1999 when Balmain merged with Western Suburbs. Western Suburbs also gave up their identity.

The Beatles have also broken up.

But they all still live on in our minds!
Personally don't like the all white without a stronger black and orange presence.
Plenty of other teams also run out in predominantly white strips ( St George , Broncos, Warriors , Roosters, Canberra , Bulldogs)- I prefer us to have a point of difference.
Imagine if evey supporter from those teams wore their white based jersey to a game - talk about bland.
The mainly black or mainly orange were ok with me and closer to BOTH Wests and Balmains past.

Judging by what I see many wearing at games, its pretty obvious the Tiger Fans lack any fashion sence.

As long as the jumper has our colours and logo, I'm happy for the Club to decide!

Panthers played in pink this round. Broncos have that awful yellow jersey. Warriors have that flag jersey. Jerseys are all over the place. Does it make one iota of difference how a team performs? I seriously doubt it!

All this stuff about what colours you see in the crowd is over-rated. I'd rather just have a stadium full of screaming Tigers fans. I could care less what colours they are wearing. What supporters wear doesn't help you win games, but the noise they make can. Its not a fashion contest

While I get what you are saying, I'm guessing that the Black jerseys probably do affect the way the team performs, esp on a hot Sunday afternoon. Which, I'm guessing, is why we and most teams have predominately white jerseys. Sports science has come a long way from the 70's and 80's when a beer in the sheds after the game was considered good recovery. :)

Guess you won't be applying for the job of marketing manager when it comes up :lol:
The colours bind the supporters together - hence the term ' army of supporters'
You must admit you get a good feeling even walking to a game surrounded by an army wearing a uniform of black , white and gold.

The other thing which I am not sure I have mentioned before on the Forum or not is a study was done by scientests comparing teams wearing dark coloured jerseys and penalty counts in the NFL

It was proven that teams wearing dark colours were more heavily penalized than teams in lighter colours and especially with 50/50 calls almost 70% of 50/50 calls went in favour of the lighter coloured team

Their conclusion was subconsciously we lean towards lighter colours because of the good guys wear white ,bad guys wear black mentality that we are brought up with .

Great post Happy, and according to recently completed research 94% of referees agree.

PS - I love the White on White, Its a great alternative IMO.

An equal distribution of all three colours is what is required.

We'll never lose our identity no matter what they wear we follow the Wests Tigers, even if they run around in body paint.
