Red, Gold and Blue. Just like the mob up the road. And Adelaide.

When are AFL clubs gonna stop copying each other? What have they got against the color Green, or grey ....... or purple?

Call an enquiry.

I always thought that orange and black (a la NFL's Bengals) horizontal stripes would have made a good 17th or 18th jumper, obviating the need for a clash jumper (except against maybe Carlton).

Green is also under-done as a colour (probably becasue it resembles grass too much). From recollection, Fremantle is the only Australian "major league" team to use it.

maybe because purple and green are...

how do i put this.......

gay?
they should never have been chosen.

terrible choices for football teams.

ironically the best uniform the dockers have is the predominately white one with a little purple.

I read somewhere that the red represents the sun, yellow the sand and blue the sky and sea.

They could have gone orange instead of red :rolleyes:

The Canberra Raiders Rugby League strip looks OK - especially with white shorts - The Green Machine

Not to nitpick but Brisbane wear Maroon, I think if they focus primarily on the red and yellow and keep the blue and white as understated as possible it could be a good colour combination.

Scrap the blue anyone? Why not move away from all other GC clubs and just have simple, plain, yellow and red (white may be included).
agreed.

And Adelaide use Navy, but we're splitting hairs here.
If you compare with the other two-team towns, there's not a single common colour between the them.

Take LA and NYC for example too. The Lakers and Clippers only have the minor white in common, as do the NY Giants and Jets.

The Green Machine obviously. Aside from Canberra and Freemantle (green isn't their major colour) the new North Queensland A-League team will use green as its primary colour.

It's simple : Orange, Bronze, Silver, Grey, etc. would be different, inventive, popular with kids, help with merchandise sales and would obviously avoid guernsey clashes. It would make perfect sense - something GC17 have not got!

The average 10 year old footy fan would know more about marketing than this amateurish rabble! As a Gold Coast local I am embarrassed, as are 95% of AFL fans up here. Just check out remarks left by people on the local news papers.:thumbsdown:
