Are you saying thats blue? Cause it actually sits next to a blue logo for the Guardian and looks pretty purple to me.
I'm amazed you find some of the clashes you do and yet you can't see how those two colours look very similar?

I didnt say they dont look very similar but so do red and purple in some hues, blue sits next to purple on the color wheel so of course it looks similar, i just think that every Freo jumper ive ever seen was very obviously purple and not blue. Similar sure, every purple thing ever has been similar to blue, same definitely not.

I think were arguing over degree here.

Does blue look like purple. Of course, they are literally the two closest colors on the color wheel.

Have i ever looked at a Freo jumper and thought "thats blue NOT purple" no i have never thought that.

Would Freos jumper and the bulldogs home jumper be a clash 100% it would, the colors are similar.

Teams just need 2 sets of uniforms with contrasting colours. I always hated the white clash guernseys, glad they're phasing those out. I think the umpires and runners should only wear white.
I've mentioned it before, I think going straight to a white clash strip is boring. I get teams with white in their colours can just invert them, but I think it's time some teams start to get bolder with using alternative colours for a clash strip. They do it in other sports around the world, Manchester United are known as the red devils but where a blue shirt as a clash. Personally I think Fremantle should revert to their original green strip or even a green alternative of their current strip doesn't really matter, but whatever purple clashes with we know green ain't, it's better than the boring white strip.

I'm going to be a bit controversial here, but I thought Melbourne v Brisbane Lions was a little clashy at times, particularly form the players fronts.

Both clubs practically used similar colours in their guernseys. Melbourne are navy and red in 70/30 split from the front. Lions are red and blue in 70/30 split too. The differences are in the hue of these colours.

Agree, I feel like the Fitzroy jumper doesn't help clashes a whole lots as there are large chunks of blue and red, with splashes of white and yellow thrown in as well. The game in round 23 will also be clashy with the Lions in home and Melbourne in royal blue.

I love seeing the old jumper but its not always the best. Using the bears design is often a better option for clashes

I want to see a red anchor guernsey. Here's my bad rendition, but you get the idea.

They should go for something like this for a clash.

Just do a straight inverse of the 1995 - 1996 jumper and it'll be a winner, and wear it for non-Melbourne away games and games vs Gold Coast at Cararra.

That way the "Fitzroy" jumper is saved solely for Melbourne away games.

The anchor is s**t for symbolism.

An anchor weighs down, prevents movement, exploration, and progress.

Basically the antithesis of dynamic organisations
Could also mean strength to be able to withstand something rough and hold a ship together. Also, their current uniform could be interpreted as going down with the brackets pointing down.

Do you really have a problem with it?

There’s no clash, if North want to wear blue shorts let them, it’s their home game.
But North have been wearing white shorts in home games (bar when they wore the inverse) since what, last few years now?

Point is Crows should've been in Navy shorts. Adding white was unnecessary.

Why change back to an old rule, mid season?

Personally I love the away team in white shorts. If it doesn’t create a clash I’m all for it
