Why do we insist on jumpers that don't really fix the Clash?
(Rhetorical question, the answer is because the club wants to sell them and jumpers in non-club colours don't sell.)

If they were actually serious they'd use a non-club colour
Like Lime Green

Maybe spoiler alert but will non-club colours be a possible discussion point on your jumpers podcast considering the chronology? Loving it so far.

Not even that non-club coloured jumpers don't sell well, most of them are regarded as the worst jumpers ever.

Glad to hear you're enjoying it.
Recorded a new one last night, so that should be up in the next day or so.
We're going in order, from beginning to current, and will then branch off into all the different types of jumpers.
That will include SDN jumpers (Indigenous), Clash jumpers, Sugar Daddy jumpers, Heritage and so on.

And yes, when clubs try to get 'creative' with their designs or colours, they're generally regarded as the worst.

Based on the Richmond dreamtime 2022 Guernsey, I'd like to see the back sash go for a year or two and re introduce the yellow numbers
I've always disliked the white numbers going over the bright yellow sash, it looks horrible from afar. I kind of thought I was the only one so I never said anything but glad there are others who think the same. The Late 90s/Early 00s Tigers jumper is my all time favourite.

Am I the only one not a fan of the black outlines on a red jumper? Wonder if this can work for us next year onwards.

The current away jumper would look much better with red shorts but considering Essendon will never bring them back, thus I think a darker or light red would look much better.
I quite like the black shadow under the sash that you guys have now more so than the solid outline, I like how it (presumably unintentionally) references the origins of the sash, in that it was an actual physical red sash over a black (and before that navy) jumper. Whoever brought up that comparison here helped me regard Essendon's clash as one of the best in the league.

Na you're not alone, I think most people dislike the weird gradient thingo on the red kit (edit: apparently not with Fizz above me lol)

My GC jumper from a few years ago

  • It looks like a footy jumper while still having a subtle beach vibe
  • They're stronger colours - the bright yellow, red and blue they currently use are terrible and won't ever look good on a footy jumper. Cleveland Cavs went with similar to these colours because they work. Lighter and brighter tones look childlike.
  • Clash is easy, just swap the red for whatever you want
  • Excuse my horrific graphics skills
