Actually pretty neutral
So standard AFL consistency here.
North in all-royal with some white vs Carlton in all-navy is ok.
North in all-royal with some white vs Crows in all-navy with some red and yellow is not, Crows in clash.
Surely Crows haven't asked to be in white? Surely they'd wear home at any opportunity given to them?

Crows do seem a lot more willing than many other teams to wear their clash though. Such as wearing it against Gold Coast where they really don’t need to.

I definitely get the impression the club treat it more or less as a pure away jumper now. They’ve been on record a number of times over the years saying they want to wear the home jumper in as many away games as possible, but it just doesn’t seem a priority to do so anymore. Particularly with a new design this year, I reckon they’re happy to give it as many runs as possible.
