It really annoys me that they haven’t used the old AFL logo. Theres nothing “retro” about a stitched version of the current logo. The shape of the shield at the bottom of the club logo is also a bit off.

Apart from that, its kinda cool.
Would it not have to have been the VFL logo?

I guess it depends what era they’re going for (if any specific era). Given they’re using the angry cat logo, they could easily get away with promoting it as a 90s vibe, especially if they’re playing North in the Bounding Roo.

Would be a nice touch if the AFL were to go down that route,

We did manage to recolour our logo for the 125th anniv. guernsey, so perhaps there is some amount of leeway the AFL are willing to take in regards to the emblem.

With teams making throwbacks over the past few years, I think it's inevitable that we will see a round dedicated to displaying these guernseys.

An AFL-sanctioned Retro Round needs to happen, it would be awesome! But rather than redoing the same home jumpers from the 70's and 80's, I'd love if the teams recreated away jumpers from the late 90's and early 2000's, which would allow us to see jumpers such as these:

I had planned to start a portfolio centred around this idea last year but school got in the way and I never ended up getting around to putting it together

I'd be happy if none of those jumpers ever saw the light of day again.

Freo: original away
Geelong: 98 away
Hawthorn: 97-98 away
Melbourne: 96-97 preseason
North: bounding roo
Port: inaugural away

Essendon: 1996 Heritage (a throwback of a throwback is all we've got)
Port: Inaugural pre season (because it's good and the home and away have already been brought back)
West Coast: Navy wings (because they already wear royal)

Gold Coast and GWS could wear fake 90s jumpers.
