Central Coast Mariners have released their new kits for 2015/16 today and suffice it to say they’ve gone down like a ten-tonne turd.
All three kits are on the very cusp of being completely unremarkable, and then the Mariners went and whacked a massive palm tree on the front – a design feature the club are calling a “bold statement“, though of what they fail to clarify…
The fans aren’t happy, with Mariners supporters queuing up on social media to deride it…

“An automatic tree-nil loss” is a personal favourite.
And to think, they were so close to achieving inoffensive mediocrity.
