Excluding Carlton the others are perfectly fine but all a bit samey. If you love the Tigers uniform surely you love the Bombers uniform as well. Ditto for Collingwood and North Melbourne.

Edit: Also when these teams face each other it mostly looks sh*t. Collingwood v Carlton is easily the worst looking matchup.
It's not just design, colour can come into it as well.

I like Essendon's guernsey more than Richmond's as I feel the Gold is too bold and makes it look a tad busier than the red on Essendon's
I like North's guernsey more than Collingwood's as the blue is nicer on the eyes than Black.
I like Sydney's guernsey more than Melbourne's as the red back isn't as dull as the navy blue back

Not a fan of overseas teams.....
It seemed to be an attempt to try and pick up the Fitzroy supporters after their club ceased to exist. Not sure if many ex-Fitzroy supporters moved across, but marketing-wise it makes sense to try and cover the west.
Well the Lions were over the other side of the bridge and far from Footscray, was more to capture like you and i said, the whole western region

Jumpers I hate:


Adelaide. Tigers have a jumper for 100 years. 70 odd years into that Crows come along with that abortion of a thing they wear. We play a Grand Final against them. We get told our jumpers clash, so WE need to wear something else. No more needs to be said.

Collingwood. I said on another thread their jumper looks like badgers are being battery farmed. Diabolical jumper.

Carlton. Basically looks like it is a designer brand rip off. Carlton can never be a designer brand.


Jumpers I like:


St Kilda. Despite looking vaguely like a tub of Peters Neapolitan ice-cream when you pull the lid off, it is appealing. Maybe that is why it is appealing. 😁

North Melbourne. Given the long history of criminals frequenting the club over the years, they must have stolen from somewhere, but it is good.

Fitzroy. Loved both the traditional maroon version and also the 70’s psychedelic colour version.

Richmond. Both the old wasp version and the current sash version just majestic.


Old VFA jumpers:


Preston - always think the majority red with some white looks good.

Oakleigh - Fremantle could learn a thing or two about how to use purple in a colour scheme from them.

The Gold Coast jumper looks like a generic clash jumper clubs use playing intra club matches in pre season.

GWS for example I don't love or hate, but the colour scheme and G emblem are distinguishable.

I thought I remembered a story behind our ochre guernsey from 2000 and after looking at a map I think it's correct. It's based on the actual state of WA, "where the red desert meets the sea", it's even in the shape of it. You can see the thin light blue line represents the clear blue beach water then the dark blue being the ocean etc. A side by side with a map should make sense now. Now you know what they were thinking.

I can't be the only one who liked that design with that colour scheme and the more traditional colour scheme with the same design?

Carlton's is boring as all hell. Gold Coast's isn't far behind. Essendon's all red guernsey from a couple of years ago was not great, either.

However, Hawthorn's guernsey is just revolting. Both the regular one and that horrid shimmering Power Ranger hue from a few years back - WTF were they thinking!?

Oh come on man, so the West Coast is an area, but the Western suburbs of Melbourne is not :oops:
The west coast is the west coast of Australia and there is no coast further west, the Western Bulldogs have five teams more west than them. They should have called themselves something like the GWM Bulldogs or just stuck with Footscray as it's not as if any other Melbourne team feels limited by their suburban monikers.

Why GWS hasn't gone the orange, charcoal, and white tricolour vertical style that looked great in early training outfits already, I'm not sure.

Personally, I actually like the thick horizontal tricolour as a design.
