Yeah, I quite like Swans and Lions jumpers too. Lions jumper would be my favourite after Carlton, especially when it goes with the real maroon colour a few times a year.I pretty much dislike every non-Victorian guernsey except Sydney and Brisbane. And Hawthorn's is awful too. Could you pick a worse colour combo than poop and pee?
Hawthorn's colours look good, pointing out the poo and wee thing is a funny primary school joke but it's still a good design.I pretty much dislike every non-Victorian guernsey except Sydney and Brisbane. And Hawthorn's is awful too. Could you pick a worse colour combo than poop and pee?
I think the colours are phenomenal, it's just the design which looks a bit like a training uniform.What specifically is so bad about Gold Coast's jumper? Is it simply the colours, or the design?
had a similar chat with mates some time ago, we actually like the WBD jumper... the use of common colours but designed in a different way makes it unique rather than ordinary. But it was the yellow Mission logo that killed it for us ... can't help but stare at it, completely overpowers and dominates the topWestern Bulldogs. Not the colours but the style. There's a sort of tube top look going on with the stripes just below the chest. Even the fittest players look a bit odd in it to me.
You're Adelaide reasoning is pathetically ignorant.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.
I think Fitzroy went with the yellow emblem and shorts. Tigers might have had a crack at yellow shorts. Dees went from dark blue to royal blue including shorts. I didn’t mind the sudden splash of colour. It certainly made our Scanlons footy cards look a bit more interesting. Probably not great if permanent.The worst guernsey - what about those coloured shorts they brought in - in the 70s with the introduction of colour TV
Essendon and Footscray come to mind - they were revolting - talk about an overkill of colour - Yuuck
Your team finished below the Crows at end of minor round and were the away team in the GF.I am all ears if you would care to expand on your “pathetically ignorant” remark….
Got no problems if we play the Bombers in a GF for example and we need to wear our away strip. So I am with you there. But if the Crows jumper clashes with ours - and I believe it does, then:Your team finished below the Crows at end of minor round and were the away team in the GF.
Up to Richmond to come up with an away Guernsey, not the home team.
The fact this has to be spelt out to you says it all.
Part way through 1974 North started wearing blue home shorts. Colour TV came in in 1975 and coloured shorts became standard for teams that didn't wear black. Fitzroy's yellow shorts only lasted half a season, they wore them 6 times and then went back to white. Footscray in red was such an odd choice but it somehow stuck around until 1979.I think Fitzroy went with the yellow emblem and shorts. Tigers might have had a crack at yellow shorts.

I am old enough to have played and watched in the era when all home teams wore black shorts and all away teams wore white shorts. The black shorts probably didn’t have much going for them for teams who didn’t have black in their jumper.
Considering it's nigh on impossible for everyone to have a jumper that doesn't clash with any other jumper, and also that there is no reason why Adelaide should have to yield to Richmond like they're some sort of inferior club with an inferior jumper, then yes, it is completely unreasonable.Got no problems if we play the Bombers in a GF for example and we need to wear our away strip. So I am with you there. But if the Crows jumper clashes with ours - and I believe it does, then:
A) Crows should not have been allowed to adopt the jumper in the first place, or
B) In the event of a clash in any game between the clubs the Crows should have to address the issue by wearing a jumper that doesn’t clash.
Do you think that is unreasonable? It certainly isn’t ignorant, but I think you wrote that due to misunderstanding my position.
Anyway, Tigers said they were happy to play in hessian sacks, our clash jumper looked great, and the day turned out alright for us. AND your team got to wear their copy-colour jumper, so we were all deliriously happy.
