- AFL Club
A bit on the fence about it.Do you think they should be allowed to wear the black and white?
Can see why the AFL wants to avoid having multiple clubs with very similar guernseys as a general rule, and on entering the AFL I figure Port implicitly agreed to adopt the new colours.
But if it's solely for an SA Showdown, in honour of their heritage, I don't really see any harm. And other clubs have worn some pretty significantly off-brand guernseys over the years without any issues as well.
Then again...if you cave to Port now, what happens next? They start arguing that if they can wear it against Adelaide, why not against Gold Coast? Sydney? Anyone but Collingwood? Maybe it's not worth conceding the inch when you know Port really want to take the mile.
