Behave yourself will you.
There is no such thing as a traditional core coloured away shirt and our current away shirt is nothing like the rovers home shirt.
Yes it's pink but again nothing like a rovers shirt.
All these people complaining it's too close to red and rovers and paranoid and ridiculous.

I never said it's like the rovers home shirt, i said (the away shirt) is as far away from our core colours of B&W as the shirt in the photo.
yes we do have a core colour/design, it's black and white HOOPS, not stripes as per the home design, HOOPS, hoops go all the way around, stripes don't.
We could have gone with any of the clubs early 20thC design as our away kit or something inspired by kits of yesteryear, the narrow hoops of the first Hull team to reach the CC final in 1908 for instance, or a deep black V on a white background, plenty of space for the sponsors name to stand out then. Nope, they came up with an absolute mess.
I voiced my opinion on it, just as many others have done elsewhere away from this forum, does it appeal more to some lady supporters than it does the men, yes it does, but then black and white in any guise has done just fine too for either sex so it can't be a decision based on the colour selling more/targetting one group of our support can it.

The alternative strip shall have a different base colour from the principal kit.

Apologies for highlighting in red.

You implied it was similar to a Rovers' shirt by including the picture in your post.

Our home shirt has a core colour/ design scheme but the away shirt does not.

The shirt is not a full hoop front and back due to the white patch on the back. This will be for name and numbering purposes to make players easily distinguishable.

Why does everything always end in a row when bumpy is involved?

Not sure but the away shirt is a disgrace.
Not certain, but I wouldn't be surprised if that pesky Lee Radford had something to do with it.

Peter Gentle would never have let the players wear a shirt like that.

Just my opinion, but the away shirt is not very good, sure it will go down well with the female fans though
