how awesome would it be to have a Don Smallgoods deli at games? ciabatta rolls, caciatore salami, corned beef reubens all at the footy…

(Well, I checked before I posted…)

Haha. I didn’t see any. Apparently my 3rd only topic created on discourse.

I just can’t wait to buy the retro jumper. I’ve already got the Nubrik one, but the Don Smallgoods one is so hip, especially with the red shorts in the early-80s. My Mum’s friend’s parents owned Blue Sea Pools in Napier St, long time sponsors of the club back in the 70s and 80s. Their house is like a shrine to EFC with all the old memorabilia. They have some of Rodger Merrett’s lace-up jumpers. Classic stuff!

“We will be releasing a limited-edition heritage guernsey, which will retail in our Bombershop, to commemorate the reignited partnership. We’re delighted to be working closely with Will and his team at the iconic DON organisation for the remainder of 2019 and beyond.”

With or without Sash droop.

I’m sure there’s halal meats available, might be a new market area for DON Smallgoods.

Brilliant.

Hope they never leave again.

It says DON were “one of the first sponsors to appear on the Essendon guernsey”.
Weren’t they THE first?

It’s just easier to say “one of the first” so you don’t have to do any actual research.

Must say I hadn’t been aware that the brand name was actually derived from Essendon, just assumed it was some guy called Don or a family name.

Also recall hearing Tim Watson make a joke about players in the 70s being not so happy to have ‘don smallgoods’ on their shorts…

Processed meat is bad for your health but good for the bottom line.

The logo is not actually going to be on the jumper though is it?
