    A place to post, discuss and celebrate examples of the AFL’s mystifying inability to get this most simple of concepts right.

    Tonight, game 1 of the season. After Richmond wore a clash strip against Adelaide in the GF.

    Richmond (black) vs Carlton (navy blue which might as well be black).

    AFL: no clash.

    Clearly shorts do the job, so we can get rid of clash jumpers.

    I’m surprised Richmond didn’t wear their own clash strip anyway given the GF

    Regardless, what did you expect? Carlton are a protected species when it comes to jumper clashes, much like Essendon + Collingwood and Hawthorn to a lesser extent

    Why not be like every sport in the world, every team have a home and away jumper? Simples.

    Umpires seem to have no trouble picking out the tigers for frees for.

    I don't really see it tonight, to be honest. And I usually struggle. There's enough white on Carlton's jumper to nullify the navy.

    Essendon got told they need a clash jumper because matches need to be “dark versus light”.

    We’re not required to wear it against Carlton. Work that out.

    The AFL will be all over West Coast vs Sydney, though. Those red and white Swans better have an appropriate clash jumper for their clash with our blue and gold.

    Good thread, there should be a whole board dedicated to discussing this sort of thing.

    Carlton should really be in their clash, yes.

    I’m going to take a really simple approach and base it on the main colour of the jumper.

    Black vs navy blue. It’s a clash.

    If we ever have another home game against you I'll be curious to see what jumper you wear

    Are you suggesting black and red may clash with navy blue and red?

    Essendon and Carlton don't wear a clash jumper against each other either. The shorts are more than enough to differentiate Ess/Rich vs Carlton.

    I think Collingwood probably clashes with Carlton more than Essendon and Richmond do and they don't wear a clash jumper

    I'm suggesting that the AFL will suddenly decide that it doesn't after 8 years of us wearing our clash strip against you lol

    Yes, they’re all wrong.

    Coll, Ess, Rich and Carl all clash. They’re all black (Carlton are effectively black) with white numbers. All should wear clash strips against each other.

    May just be me, but I can't watch Sydney v GWS games. Red back v orange back, both with a splash of white on the front. Screws with my brain.

    I'd say only probably Ess/Rich and Coll/Carl clash. I think the less clash jumpers, the better.

    The one that I'm bewildered at is Richmond needing to wear a clash jumper against Adelaide, but Essendon not requiring to do so.

    And for some reason the AFL decided that this year, we clash against West Coast and not Port Adelaide even though we always wear a clash jumper against Port and never against West Coast
