The Anzac jersey worn by the Richmond Tigers during their AFL match against Essendon on April 25th has sparked outrage among many Australians. The jersey featured a large poppy on the front, which many felt was inappropriate and disrespectful to the Anzac tradition.
The poppy is a symbol of remembrance for those who have died in war, and many felt that the Richmond Tigers were using it to promote their own brand. The club has since apologized for the design, saying that it was not intended to be disrespectful.
However, the damage has already been done, and many Australians are still angry about the jersey. The incident has highlighted the importance of respecting the Anzac tradition, and the need for clubs to be more mindful of the symbols they use in their branding.
