Every week we debate on whether certain guernseys and shorts should be worn in certain match ups, whether there is enough of a contrast between guernseys, if white shorts shorts are really necessary or if Port should give no shits about what Eddie says and wear their Prison Bars full time.

In this thread, I'm going to create a series of Polls (probably using Google Forms) that will consist of all possible match up between the 18 teams (306 match ups) and ask what is the preferable guernsey and short combination in each situation from both the home team and the away teams perspective. For example, in a game between where the ADELAIDE CROWS hosts the BRISBANE LIONS, what should each team wear.

Each series of Polls will put one of the 18 teams as the home team, and a response will need to be given to the home team, even if it's just their home kits. (Thanks Geelong).
And the options on the Poll will be basic, and focused towards what the main colour of the guernsey should be, rather than the design. So the number panels, prison bars or bounding roos will not be considered, nor will the Canberra guernsey, the Hawks heritage guernsey or one-off event guernseys be considered.

Here is a table that shows all the proposed guernseys I plan to put in the poll, and I am looking for suggestions on other that I may have missed to add to the list so I cover everything, within reason.

Have the possibility to add a red set as well.

Adding the Royal shorts on the Melbourne guernsey to pay homage to Fitzroy, and something to wear away to Geelong (and North).
And gave enough options of a yellow based guernsey.

Personally don't think Gold Coast need white shorts, and would rather see the blue or yellow with matching shorts.

Adding charcoal as the other options here, as seen previously in the pre-season. Rather than the orange base for the current home guernsey.

Not focusing on the heritage V guernsey here because it's the same base colour as the home guernsey

The focus is on whether the guernsey should be black, silver, teal or white.

Adding the full red set we previously saw.
I think it works well against certain teams that need the better contrast.


I should be able to have a live results doc up and we should be able to see what the board thinks, by majority, as to what the ideal match ups should be.

Not sure if this fits into the topic of ideal matchup but one of my favourite matchups of all time is Collingwood in Clash vs West Coast Home.
Just something about the contrast in it is satisfying.

My favourite all-time matchup would probably be North Melb vs Sydney, this matchup particularly:
