What Dublin GAA's new jersey could have looked like if they had opted to leave O'Neills
Dublin GAA have had a long-running relationship with jersey manufacturers O'Neill's.
However, for a few crazy days back in 2016 it looked like the Dubs might be breaking with tradition and going with a "continental" kit manufacturer.
In the end, it never came to pass, but it did get our creative juices flowing.
What could the new jersey look like if it was made by a company best known for producing gear for that foreign game? We decided to conjure up 15 prototype jerseys based on actual ones the three aforementioned companies have made to see if what the Dubs could be in store for.
Here's what we came up with. Here's what the Dublin County Board ignored.
Don't leave us just yet, there's plenty more to come.
Put me down for two.

Cluxton, we're looking at you.
Clogs are optional.

Not sure if this is made of fabric or body paint.
Perhaps this would be better suited as Jim Gavin's attire than that of the players.
Ballsy and just different enough that it could work.
Could you imagine?
The only drawback is that it looks a bit like a rejected Man City shirt design.

Retro is totally in now, right?
Modern is totally in now, right?

Arguably the only one that looks remotely like the current Dublin jersey.
We're not sure who'd hate this more, the Reds or the Everton fans.
Probably the Dubs.
