I understand that. We are talking about the current AFL logo, as seen on the chest of every AFL guernsey. In this thread we were talking about an Essendon training guernsey that has the current AFL logo on it. It was listed as being from the late '90s, but I said the current AFL logo was first used on guernseys in the year 2000.It wasn't a home and away match. It was part of the 2000 Ansett Cup (round robin pre-season comp).
The game was played at the MCG on the evening of 31 December 1999, and was billed as the "Millennium Match".
GoldsbergGold said the current AFL logo was first worn in late 1999, so claimed the Essendon guernsey could be from that year. I asked which match in 1999 was the current AFL logo worn (instead of the AFL shield logo).
I would imagine the Millenium Match was the debut of the current AFL logo, but as seen it wasn't the plain AFL logo but the Millenium logo. And as you say, even though the match was on the last day of 1999, it was part of the 2000 pre-season. So any guernsey with the current AFL logo could only be from season 2000 at the earliest.
