Stocks plunge; Swans’ ideas fly
Posted by hanoiswans on January 22, 2008
Today, the stockbrokers broke us and we wondered whether Black Tuesday should be renamed Red Tuesday. Punters looked glumly at their computer screenswhich were bleeding more red than slaughtered chickens.
Meanwhile, the Rooster and Sam Grigg were independently and simultaneously playing with ideas to give the red and white Vietnam Swans a more appropriate look in Asian football. They have tried to design the perfect jumper that will be loved by generations and outlive ours. They are shown below. Click on them for a better look.
The two samples designed by the Rooster have “Big Rooster” splashed across the back. The other 4 jumpers are Sam’s. Read Sam’s to find out the true meaning behind each of the jumpers.
As always, if you agree or disagree - or have your own design - post a comment.

Anything to do with flags just won’t fly. It was only last year that DHL was finally allowed to use their international logo in Vietnam (3 horizontal red bars, on yellow background, at the base of the ‘D’ and the base of the ‘L’). Prior to that, DHL could only use their red lettering, on a yellow background, minus the horizontal red bars.
While I’m on my soapbox, let’s get right away from the colours red, yellow and white (and combinations thereof) and don’t even get me started on stars . . .
What’s with these places and their stars, hammers and sickles??? Is it a test? You can try to reach for the stars while your feet are hammered into the ground? If you reach a little too high, you get your hands cut off with a sickle?
You get hammered at night, see stars and have a sickle on the side of the road?
I’m all for the Melbourne Storm colours. As for name, I don’t really have an opinion on that. Well, not ’til I’ve a Beam . . . or 10.

The brand name ‘Swans’ either Hanoi or Vietnam needs to stay, let’s sick with Vietnam Swans. Colours, designs irrelevant except get rid of the star, Bintangs have that, but put the ‘Big V’ on the front of a red/blue or red/gold jumper and it will be a winner in my books.
