Here's some from a few weeks ago

The bottom one from my other post was a Collingwood home game. So Carlton should've been made to wear their clash. But for some reason they never do against other "Big 4" teams.
Sorta my point.
I mentioned Collingwood but Carlton are just as bad.
They keep trying clash strips, they just all suck like that grey thing last year.

I get the meaning with the traditional jumper, but doesn't mean clubs cant do something different for 2 or 3 games a year.
After all how often does black and white or navy and white clash?

And just to sprinkle on a little more stupid - Collingwood's clash jumper is what they have worn for the majority of their existence, so they should just wear it for every game against Carlton, Richmond and Essendon. But they don't because Eddie claims their black-based jumper is more traditional.

Mate, I'm with you most of the way. I just disagreed when you said "No Collingwood, white with black and black with white are not different." They actually are.

To an extent.
From the back the clash is reduced to virtually nil.

If there is an issue at the front it isn't really solved by the clash because the clash strip changes the background colour mainly (and order of stripes?)

We'll have to agree to disagree on that one.

Not an AFL Game but the Interleague Match between MPNFL and the Ovens and Murray FL saw both wearing yellow jumpers and then the umpires for it the green tops. That's blur worthy.

If the AFL allowed the above with white shorts as the differential i am confused why they are not allowing this

Neither should happen yet one did.
Big 4 i guess

So 34 pages in, is there ANYONE who seriously thinks the above isn't a clash?

Outside of anyone at the AFL that is.
That was Eddies fault for changing the Magpie jumper

Good news he has seen the light & has stated the Magpies will wear the traditional white based jumper with black nos in all games v the Blues !!

Mr Rocket Scientist: It doesnt matter whose home game it was, it was an obvious clash and the away team should've worn a clash strip.
Your question was asking why Collingwood didn’t wear their clash strip, not Carlton.

Carlton don’t wear their clash strip against Collingwood because Eddie doesn’t want them to and the AFL has a separate set of rules for the ‘big 4’ when it comes to clashes.

My question was more related to why wasnt a clash strip worn.
I never actually said Collingwood.

Its pathetic really. We get it, you like your guernsey, but do what everyone else has to.

Blame the AFL for not enforcing the clash policy for 'traditional' match ups.

West Coast can't wear royal blue against purple, yet Carlton can wear navy and white against black and white.

It’s mainly just Collingwood actually. Essendon and Richmond have done the clash thing for a few years now. If the pies had a stuck with a white based jumper like they traditionally had, there’s be many fewer clashes but the desire to block the prison bars meant they had to be dicks and ruin it for everyone.

Collingwood aren't the problem. They have been open to wear their white strip in games against Carlton, and it wouldnt surprise me if they do the same in Richmond and Essendon matches.

Carlton/Essendon and Carlton/Richmond are the only big 4 clash holdouts, and since Richmond and Essendon have been wearing clash strips for many years, I doubt we're the problem...

And that navy is pretty much black these days.

My first instinct is surely they couldn't be that stupid.

But sadly there's probably a very good chance they are.

Reckon this clashes !!
More than the alternative, yep.

Same as how Geelong have the commendable common sense to wear white shorts at home against us rather than both teams wearing half dark half light.
