Old logo in the top right. I remember a few weeks ago they hinted at a change on their FB page.

Exactly, try and come up with something new that in 20 years, we look back at and love. I know part of it is always just nostalgia but the best design are the ones that post the envelope at the time (in any sport)
I feel like that'll be when the new logo comes in. You'd think they're kinda just biding time, and a re-hash of a great guernsey is perfect for the meantime.

It looks weird to me but the 2008 version did have a red back:

It does look odd, but it does make sense for both a legacy and clash sense. I think we need a red guernsey so having this with a yellow back would almost defeat the purpose of it.
I absolutely froth over that centenary AFL logo. I could be blinded by nostalgia but I still love it.

Would they be waiting for the Thebby move? Seems like a real slow burn if they're teasing it now though.

Yeah they are 100% testing the love of that logo. I feel like a modernised, cleaner version of the 90's logo is on the way depending on how this jumper sells.
I have a suspicion what's old is new again this season, noticed that New Era are doing caps with the embroidered 80s mascots on them

Can the crows hurry up and change their logo? This image of the crow used on these jumpers is sooo much better then their current logo

Considering the way some sponsor logos are on guernseys how the heck did Adelaide get away with the white Toyota logo on a yellow background 😂
My first day of my GD course went like this.
1. Intros
2. White text on yellow and visa versa is a sin. Heres why
3. Lunch is at 1pm

Fitzroy can now operate in lower leagues because of an agreement with the Lions including usage of the monogram.
Not quite correct. There is no agreement as Fitzroy FC are fully independent of the Brisbane Lions. Fitzroy continued in their own right (after the AFL transferred IP as it pertained to Fitzroy to the Brisbane Bears in 1996) and now have 140 years of history in the VFA, VFL, AFL and now the VAFA. Fitzroy FC also trademarked (and therefore own) the FFC monogram and allow the Brisbane Lions to use the logo. (Good advertising / marketing for Fitzroy)

It's amazing how often clubs use a white logo on a yellow background. It's barely legible here under studio lights, let alone on field during a game.

as some other posters have stated, time to stop rehashing guernseys (even in the promo video the crows have stated this is the 2nd reboot) and start to create some more unique designs, even if they do look as bad as the power rangers one.
I disagree, crows fans are happy and the ones that they have uniquely done, like the murder of crows, were universally hated.

I'm not against clubs catering to their supporter base than jumper nuffies like us.
