    It would be a decent kit if they left the Bob Marley image off it. The face is too much.

    A decent kit for Carlow GAA, minus Marley.
    Bohs AGM should be good crack next month!

    It'l be a big money earner I'd imagine. And as a third kit or novelty kit, sure, why not,as random as it is.

    But as your away kit??!!!

    here's one stolen from twitter that i thought was hilarious...

    "Not sure about a football shirt with with a music icon printed on it but have to say if it's going to be Bob Marley you couldn't ask for a more appropriate sponsor than Mr. Green..."
    Have you ever dealt with O'Neills??? If there was a run of 10 jerseys its out of stock and there will be a delivery in next week or so maybe...although nothing like a long waiting list to crank up the interest. This shirt is definitely going to end up on those best/worst jerseys ever on every football website, genius or joke? I just dont know!!

    I'm sure he'll settle for being on the 2020 jersey.

    After all, what's another year?

    The Bob Marley link to Bohs is super-tenuous to say the least. They could have at least left it until 2020, which is the 30th anniversary of his gag at Dalyer - which would have felt a bit less gimmicky,

    That said - it'll sell by the bucket load, so you have to admire it. Bohs are by-far doing some of the most interesting stuff in the league to build a fanbase, and there's a lot that other clubs could learn from them.

    I just hope they thought about and sorted image rights. Otherwiese, they could find the Bob Marley Estate delivers them a very hefty bill after they've done all the hard work in selling (and spending the income from) lots of these shirts. They're using his 'brand' to sell a shirt, so they should really be paying his estate/family for that right.

    The Marley estate have been very litigious 're Bob's image rights.Took Wal-Mart and Target on in the states and won big damages.Dont think that jersey will ever go into production with the BM image.

    I mentioned this on Orielweb earlier today but didnt want to kill the buzz here. I doubt think these jerseys will be on the radar. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/m...ge-use-123949/

    What's the angle?

    Are Bohs gonna say it's not Marley or did they have approval? You'd think O'Neills would have done their homework at least and wouldn't print something like that without a legal opinion anyway

    Awful jersey and honestly can't understand who approved it. Only positive is the level of publicity it generated, good or bad it certainly got the clubs name media profile you couldn't buy. Also, there is a nerd market in football jerseys and I can imagine a load of anoraks salivating at the picture ��
    Just sorry for the players that will have to wear it (hopefully not too often ��)

    I heard this eve on the radio that it's not actually a pic of Marley. It's changed just enough that they don't have to pay image rights or something to that affect...

    Someone's clearly had too much weed while designing the jersey...

    That said, if they manage to pull that off without having to pay for the image rights, that could be a real money spinner as the jersey will certainly be considered iconic in some circles.

    Limerick could make a bit of much-needed cash by finding a celebrity to pay for their head on our jersies next year.
