Looks atrocious and almost makes the new United jerseys look good in comparison.

They look pretty inoffensive to me at first glance - who cares if they look 'good' anyway? It's about generating extra revenue for the league.

I think it looks fine as it's basically the Townsville Crocs green and there is nobody with green in their colour scheme so we should all be able to identify them on court and that serves a purpose I guess.

I really hope that the referees have their version of a bloody good season this year... they haven't made a single bad decision during the 2018/19 NBL season so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt right now.

Who else remembers NBL refs being sponsored to wear green in the 80s.

They entered the court to "It's not easy being green".

I'd love to have referees being introduced this season to that, could add to the spectacle for sure

Going by the photo with the article, it looks fine to me. Good sponsorship opportunity and lessens risk of confusion with other uniforms.
