Giants fans now have a Canberra jumper

By johnboy - 15 December 2011 24

Rejoice oh Giants fans in Canberra.

Andrew Barr has launched the “Canberra home guernsey”:

The guernsey was an entry in the community design competition which was won by Brindabella College and another local Canberran, graphic designer John Garrard.

Having the GWS playing in Canberra is great news for local AFL fans.

It is also great news for Canberra’s tourism operators who will benefit greatly from the thousands of visitors games will attract from around our region.

The first home game in Canberra will be on 28 April 2012 against the Western Bulldogs.

What’s Your opinion?

I didnt know the Brumbies were out of favour. Is it already time to move on to a new sport and see “fans” walking around everywhere showing their newly found long term loyalty.

I misread the title as Giant fans now have a Canberra jumper”, and was expecting to see one of the wind turbines had been painted in Raiders colours…

Ahhh, I see it now… although applying the same amount of interpretive thought I can also see a hypodermic needle, a fighter jet and a phallic owl.

Personally i see a giant dagger pointed at their own hearts.

I may, or may not, have been playing too much skyrim lately.

I was going to submit a design for this competition, but then I took an arrow to the knee.

There is a lot of that going ’round the internets right now. I assume it has something to do with all the archery thefts round Canberra lately? :)

Almost 70 years after Ben Chifley changed the spelling to Labor and people are still spelling it with a u.

So Barr spends what was it.. $20m(?) of Canberra taxpayers money to get a handful of home games for what must be the 3rd or 4th most popular participation sport in this city and in exchange they whack a very stylised version of a Canberra landmark on their shirts (so stylised in fact that it takes some Canberran’s a while to work out what the hell it is) for home games only. No-one outside the ACT sees this ‘value for money’ advertising?!

I’m having great difficulty seeing any value in this. Like Stanehope with his art, this is just Barr indulging his personal passion with someone else’s money. Another piss-poor decision that has lost Labor my vote at the next election:(

I know a club house and training facilities with ovals attached in Griffith that could be used as a local base. Apparently the incumbent sporting club doesnt need it anymore.

Ignorance is bliss it would seem.

Aussie Rules was played at the competition level, long before the two Rugby codes arrived in the Nations Capital. Support for the two Rugby codes increased significantly with the influx of those from NSW and QLD. Further to this, when the APS stopped centralising and moving its staff to Canberra from the Southern States back in the mid-late 80s, support for the VFL/AFL and the code itself levelled out.

I arrived year in 1981, and I am happy to argue the point, that RU and RL did not dominate the minds of football fans back then.

JB, I know this is off topic, but my boys are truly desperate for Skyrim for Christmas. Is it *really* that good?
