Wouldn’t read into that, just generic pics. Every photo they use features each club in full home - except Geelong which I guess is because at the start of the year, Geelong wore white shorts at almost all times.

This is the first time in a long time Geelong has actually worn home shorts for home games
Looks so much better too

Not really, they’ve been doing it all year. Before this year they obviously didn’t, and since the photos were taken between last year and this year, it would have been assumed that was the case again.

Perfect compromise

All Geelong home games at KP including finals. Geelong should have the same rights every other team in world sport gets by playing their home games in their home venue.
Geelong's regular home kit are worn with white shorts. Geelong have won all three flags in the past 55 years in white shorts, so for anyone under 55 it is their premiership kit.

Sadly too much common sense is involved for that to happen.

Based on current uniforms, this is how I'd go with Geelong in both home and away games. Evens out to wearing blue shorts pretty much just as often as white, regardless of where the games are being played.

*Brisbane would probably prefer to wear their red jumper with white shorts away to the Cats. Not ideal but I could probably deal with it as a one off if I had to.

I don’t follow the other teams as much as my own(obviously) but cats way better in white shorts v dogs or it becomes a mess. More so than say WCE who are also mostly royal blue, but we have a white hoop and no yellow to offset the clash like WCE.

Not specifically jumper related by the MCC is running with this logo for West Coast:

Some very rudimentary technological skills lead me to the outline being this colour:

Does anyone know what's up with this?

Geelong apparently requested this week's final be played at Kardinia Park. Given last week's alleged tantrum, are we going to see them in Navy shorts again?

Looks like another Friday night of trying to look hard at who's playing for who but not as bad as last week
The white shorts rule bugs me more than ever given the inconsistencies it creates. Geelong mainly white, so put oppo in white shorts??!!

This matchup is acceptable from a clash POV I must admite, but it's not the ideal matchup, it's not even the second best matchup (both in home shorts would be better IMO), but there is certainly sufficient contrast.

Actually pretty neutral

Lol that they even asked - they and we know the scenarios that would lead to this happening again (4 Vic finals week 1; Geelong playing a "smaller" team; the AFL being in a good mood) and this doesn't meet any of them.
While Geelong are happy or forced to play some home games at the MCG they will have no leg to stand on outside the above criteria.
