Growing up as a Tiger supporter back when the AFL was the VFL I came to love my Tiger symbol – the tiger striding in front of the yellow sash on a black background on a shield with Tigers – Richmond Football Club above it. They flirted with a stylised Tiger head in the early 90s (words can not express how much I dislike that era) and now the club uses a magnificent tiger head image.
But nothing says Tigers to me more than that old shield. To me, it’s the true Tiger emblem from our most recent glory days so you can imagine how happy I was when my wonderful gal found this.
It’s going on my winter jacket, opposite the new Tiger logo.
