Agreed – it's how designs become iconic.

That said I preferred it with the larger chest hoop.
The Reebok jersey is more iconic then the hoops one imo - if iconic is the route the Sharks are going for then this hoops jersey is just meh

Merch is a massive part of sporting clubs income, Cronulla are light years behind

Rabbitohs do it very very well

I love the Reebok jersey but the hoops is more iconic, far more people would associate that with us imo.

I'm digging what they're doing at the moment, keeping the main jersey consistent but bringing back killer heritage jerseys each year.

The overall quality/designs could improve but I like the overall approach.

The hoops were integral for around for about 30 years before the Reebok versions, and still are a big part of our signature look.

That's probably the closest to the definition of "iconic" as you can get...

I agree that we could be more creative with the away strips.
Although the black version does prove the hoop looks better without the sleeve ones.
When does the classic deal end?

I prefer without but also I think they don’t look anywhere near as bad worn as they do in just the image

As if even our heritage light blue jersey we wear with the collar even better than the hoops

No it does not, but it does have to do with the definition of iconic, and people that use the word in this context.
You used it correctly. To say 1 isn't iconic because another 1 looks better doesn't work. It could be a universally hated design but still iconic.
