I’m confused about the new Sharks jersey.
We’ve only seen a few pictures of it so far. The first that emerged was on the Sharks cage site and seemed to indicate an all-black chest panel. Here’s John Smit wearing it:
Very soon afterwards, though, Smit himself posted a picture of the jersey on Twitter. Although his flash does weird things to it, it certainly doesn’t look as though the chest is pure black. In fact, it looks almost purple in this snap:
The latest image to emerge is from the official Reebok site and although this one is a mockup rather than a photograph, it would certainly seem to indicate that the jersey is more grey than black:
What do you guys think? I liked the jersey far more when I thought it was pure jet black. This fade to grey nonsense (apart from reminding me of a bad Ultravox song) makes it look like whoever designed it got carried away using textures in photoshop!
Here’s another one… Willem Alberts in the jersey. Again, though, only the upper chest can be seen.
