Name: Sydney Football Club aka SMCGFC (South Melbourne-Collingwood-Geelong Football Club)
Colours: Black and White (all three clubs - Collingwood, Geelong and Sydney - share the colour white, and black comes from Collingwood)
History: To reduce the number of Melbourne-based teams, Collingwood merged with Geelong to form the Geelong Magpies. With the Magpie mascot, it was agreed that the black and white jumpers should be maintained but with horizontal Geelong-style stripes. Later, to reduce the number of Victorian teams, the Geelong Magpies merged with Sydney to form the Sydney Magpies.
Home Jumper: The Sydney Magpies home jumper combines the black and white of Collingwood with the horizontal stripes of Geelong and the iconic Opera House of Sydney.
Away Jumper: The Sydney Magpies away jumper is similar to the home jumper, but has a predominantly white back instead of black.
That was quick PM!
Name: Sydney Gryphons
This new mascot was adopted because the Gryphon is a hybrid between a cat and a bird, which equitably represents the old mascots of all three clubs.
Colours: Black, White and Red
Each club brought its predominate jumper colour to the new club. Black represents the Magpies. White represents the Cats. Red represents the Swans.
Jumper: The new jumper incorporates the three club colours with the Gryphons logo inside a thick "V". The "V" represents the Victorian heritage of Collingwood, Geelong and South Melbourne (Sydney).
History: In 2020 the AFL catch both Geelong and Collingwood rorting the salary cap by millions of dollars and punish them with the biggest fines ever handed out in the history of Australian sport. As a result both clubs go broke. At the same time the Sydney Swans are struggling to stay afloat, especially after losing half their supporter base to the successful West Sydney Wolves franchise (who have won 3 flags in their first 8 seasons). The AFL's solution is to merge all three clubs together and base the new club in Sydney, which leaves two AFL licences vacant for future non-Victorian clubs such as Tasmania and the NT.
Traditions: The captain of the Sydney Gryphons always wears the number 3, which signifies the three teams that merged to create the club.
South Melbourne Seagulls
Name: South Melbourne Football Club
Mascot: Seagull (The "Seagulls" was an early nickname for the Geelong Football Club, and also embraces the avian logos of the Swans and Magpies)
Colours: White, black and red (White is shared by all three clubs, black comes from Collingwood as well as the "Black Cats" of Geelong, and the red comes from Sydney/South Melbourne)
Home: The South Melbourne Seagulls home jumper is predominantly white, a trait shared by all Geelong home jumpers, almost all Sydney/South Melbourne jumpers (except the jumper worn in 1921-22, and all Collingwood jumpers before 2001). The red vee comes from South Melbourne's jumper from 1932-86 and the black vee comes from the pre-season jumper worn by Collingwood in the 1982 Escort Cup against Swan Districts.
Clash: The South Melbourne Seagulls clash jumper is based on Geelong's current clash jumper in black, red and white and with a seagull instead of a cat. The only issue with this colour scheme and mascot is that red, white and black are also used by St Kilda and the "Seagulls" was used a mascot for St Kilda in the 1930s and 40s.
closed 9/5/10... I think you mean 9/6/10!
Good from you, pie machine
I initially thought albatrosses or something along those lines, but after seeing your South Melbourne Seagulls I won't bother
Geelong are massively underrepresented
Name: Geelong Reds
The Red Panda was adpoted as the new mascot because it references all three clubs. The taxonomic name of the Red Panda is Aliurus fulgens which means "shining cat" (Geelong), and its dominant natural colours are red and black (Sydney and Collingwood). The nickname is officially shortened to "Reds".
Colours: Red, White and Black
Each club brought its predominate jumper colour to the new club. Red represents the Swans. White represents the Cats. Black represents the Magpies.
Jumper: The new jumper incorporates the three club colours within the Geelong hoops. Red is the main colour in line with the "Reds" nickname, with a mainly white jumper for clashes.
History: Many clubs became disenfrancised with the AFL following the introduction of the Gold Coast and West Sydney franchises, who are instantly successful largely due to their expanded salary caps. This leads to a breakaway competition that consists of 8 clubs, which runs alongside the AFL for five years. Collingwood and Sydney are two of the clubs in the rebel league. Unfortunately this league is unsuccessful, and all 8 teams apply to re-join the AFL. Whilst the AFL accepts all teams back into the competition, it requires many of the rebel teams to merge with the smaller AFL clubs who have struggled to stay afloat in the downsized competition. Therefore Collingwood and Sydney are merged with Geelong upon re-entry to the AFL, and the Geelong Reds are born. (note: how unlikely is all of that! )
Traditions: The captain of the Geelong Reds always wears the number 3, which signifies the three teams that merged to create the club. A rivalry with The Blues also grows quickly and becomes one of the most popular matches on the AFL calender.
This one really had me struggling for inspiration.
I kept thinking how do you combine 3 clubs that have 3 different guernsey styles and have a cat and two birds as the logos. I thought about using a griffon but then figured that it would probably be a common choice.
Then it hit me, I knew how to get my inspiration.
So I lit some candles and incense, went into a trance and began to channel Smeagle and the design came to me (BTW, Smeagle you have a filthy mind!!!)
And so what did I come up with.....
Well I thought about the names of the teams locations and from that figured that there was not much I could do with Sydney, but using the last syllables of Geelong and Collingwood got the words "Long Wood". This gave me a great idea, the words led me to the golf club named the Driver and so were born...
The Sydney Drivers
The logo uses two Griffons (I kept that original idea) and have them holding golf clubs in what looks like a logo used for a golf course. The sponsors are Callaway Golf and PING which fit the theme perfectly.
Name: Sydney Drivers Football Club
Mascot: Griffon with golf club
Colours: Blue, Red, Black and White
Home Guernsey: Blue an Red Vertical Stripes
Away Jumper: Black and white jacquard pattern with red sides.
I love the abstract thinking craegus...especially the "long wood" bit...you could've gone a bit blue with that one if you wanted to!
I'm not sure about the away jumper though, it might clash with this...
...just kidding. Nothing clashes with this!
COLOURS: One colour from each club has been used. Red (Sydney), Navy (Geelong) and White (Collingwood, also a small amount of black used)
LOGO: Uses Geelong former GFC logo with S replacing G, the Magpie (used on Collingwood's former away jumper) is place don the logo and is prominent on both jumpers.
Welcome Sydney Wildcats to the 2010 MOTW 6
A borrowed cougar, wildcat.
Reversed Sash not in @FL, wildcat, cat for cats, wild for wild birds.
no, i thought just under 1000 years was the perfect length
Sydney Striped Cats
Ok this week i really wanted to be inventive and smeaglise my entry.
With that in mind i give you the Geelong Burglars.
Why the Geelong Burglars?
Well before 1924 Geelong were known as the Seagulls for a little while.
this is also why they have white in there jumper. ( according to wikipedia )
So im left with a swan, magpie and seagull.
All of these birds like too eat chips i think.
And they may also go to the extreme of stealing chips.
That's how i get the burglars.
Now the colours. I used white, red and black. As mentioned before the prominent colours in the three guernseys.
Now the jumpers: both jumpers have G.C.SM.FC on the back (No sponsors on jumpers)
I went with black and white horizontal stripes to go with Geelong and Collingwood. It also is like the Hamburglar. The black stripes are surrounded by red. (note the away shorts and socks replace the back of the shorts its not some wacky design
This has a lot more history to it. It's black to go as far away from the home as possible but still looking good. It has 6 red pin stripes to represent Collingwood's 3 stripes. it also has the red vee from South Melbournes old jumper.
I usually ask for thoughts but this week I really would like to know more then others what everyone thinks....
Damn it, steal my next idea why don't you (name wise)
Back to the drawing board...
Speaking of stealing:
Love the idea mate, very well done
(It's "burglar", by the way. Fix the typo and you've definitely got my vote ATM )
Sorry smeagle, good name tho can't understand why ppl in the GWS keep going for wolves?
Any way my second and last for MOTW 6 is the:
Southern Swans, after Collingwood and Geelong merged in hell in the year 2110 ae (after eddie) to become the Southern Wildcats, playing half their home games at Corio Stadium Geelong and the other half at the MCG now known as the United Centre of Forthinking.
In the year 2111 the third Sydney team entered the Southern Hemisphere AFL which seen the league of 32 clubs become 33 an uneven number that the CEO Andrew Demitriou V1 JNR would like to rectify.
Two years later Sydney Swans are hit hard with salary cap rorts and rumours that Warwick Capper may make a comeback, the club is failing after it's Business adventures into the Rugby League market fails terrorbly, finnally the Swans enter into recievorship.
The SH AFL offer to pay for a clubs salary for one year if they merge or relocate with the Swans the Southern Wildcats jump at the chance eager to bust into a new environment.
2114 is the first season of the new Southern Swans, they play 5 home games in Sydney 5 in Geelong and the rest at the UCF.
haha right get right on the change.
thanks for the feedback smeagle
Love the story hahaha
Ok, this is my first attempt at a jumper design, so I'm hoping no-one is using #91 (I looked for a list and couldn't find one).
So I bring to you, the Sydney Canaries.
I was inspired by the image of a cat chasing birds, which reminded me of Tweety and Sylvester. Thus the canary logo.
Colours are Gold (Canary inspired) and Navy Blue (Geelong)
The Stripes are Collingwood and The V is from Sydney (Inspired from their clash jumper.
Don't worry the number list is now defunct
i really like the colours and the ideas great.
brilliant first effort
Lol we have to say that all the time
