Andrew Barr has announced his position on negotiations with the AFL.
While offering to throw millions at the game he is holding out for some genuine locality. He’s also very specific about what sort of jumper he wants:
- Reports have also suggested that a second Sydney team would play in a special Canberra “home jumper” for its games in the capital.
“I am keen on a Canberra jumper. But my message for the AFL will be simple. I want a proper traditional footy jumper, with stripes, a sash, a v-neck or hoops, not one of the messy concoctions that so many new teams in all codes of sport have adopted. A strong footy club needs a strong identity here. Only a proper footy jumper can deliver that.”
