One is black with white stripes and is more black than white.

There's a reason they wear the latter against Port.
👓 they might help you.

The Bulldogs' clash jumper is the same colours as their home too but I really hope you can tell the difference.

I still don't understand how you think Collingwood would expect to be wearing clash in a home final vs GWS.
Because it looks better on tv

Collingwood had that jumper forever until Eddie decided to change it

But whatever

As long as Geelong wear home kit
(Jumper with NAVY shorts)
I’m happy

But yeah it’s ridiculous they have a monopoly on black and white
Port should wear prison bars every week

And Geelong in white shorts looks better on TV. Especially versus Collingwood.

See what I just did there?

Of course you don't.

By your logic, if Collingwood were to revert to our traditional white backed jumper as a home jumper in 2020 complete with home black shorts where would that leave Geelong? Would Geelong have to come up with some ridiculous and random none club colour? For mine the jumper is infinitely more important than the colour of the shorts. Where simple switch of short colours removes a clash it should just be common sense and complete a non-discussion that it occurs.

As a Geelong fan how would you feel if the bulldogs, North or Port where to switch to their first jumpers of blue and white hoops on a permanent basis?

I don’t care what any away team wears including my team

Kit is guernsey, shorts, socks

If there is a clash away team finds an alternative

Short swap not necessary

Why don’t people understand this?

This from the same guy who only today suggested Collingwood should wear clash next week in a home final.

I said it would be the best look
Like pies say it would look better if Geelong just wore white
Based on what you said just now Collingwood should get their 100% full home kit and GWS find something no white and no charcoal. Black and white vs, say, all-orange. Would that not be the best look? Home team in full home and away team in suitable clash?

If you want clubs to come up with a third kit in completely different, non-club colours soccer style, then thats fine. But you will get very little support on that idea not only from people on this forum, but the wider football public. Its hard enough getting fans to accept clash jumpers in their club colours.

I don’t see how anybody could be disappointed seeing their club in a different short if it means teams are still in their preferred jumpers. To me, that is far more important.

I noticed the Collingwood GWS game is prelim final #1

Is that still a rule or did they change it?
The PF naming is still dependent on who wins through from the QFs (Winner QF1 hosts PF1) but the GF is no longer “Winner PF1 v Winner PF2”. Highest on the ladder named first for GF. So the winner of Richmond v Geelong will be the home team for the GF.

This assumes the AFL stick with the rule they put in place in 2016 and don’t change it, of course.

Note: Eddie thinks that because Collingwood beat Geelong they’re now the number 1 seed, but he tried that on last year after beating Richmond in the PF and the AFL were having none of it.

Used some analogy that in tennis if the number 32 seed beats the number 1 seed then they become the new number 1 seed, which is not really how it works.
