Love your work mero. But why in all uniforms is Geelongs kit with white shorts in 2016 only?
Same with north in 2014?
Because the uniform is their Home kit.
Since 2007 clubs have had a Dark Uniform and Light Uniform.
Only those two clubs have their Light Uniform as the one they wear at Home.
Everyone else wears their Dark.
For traditional reasons those two clubs the AFL allowed them to wear Dark shorts with their Light jumpers at Home.
In 2014 the AFL actually requested they wear their full Light uniform with their Light jumpers.
Therefore in Home game they were more incidences of them wearing White shorts at Home than Dark.
Therefore that is how I represented them.

Yes but my point is why only those years? Geelong haven’t worn blue shorts in home games since 2015.

Something appears a bit amiss with the Hawthorn all uniform pages from about 2012 onwards... in particular 2018 it shows them in a Puma uniform...

It was the one year the AFL actually decided to enforce their own uniform policy.
The next year they relaxed it again.
Possibly because they saw how stupid it was.

The 2012 uniform is out of order.
I'll fix it when I get a chance.
2012 is showing last in that row, so each one is out by a year.

Mero would you be interested in adding a blog or new paper style articles to your site?

I know someone who has a old 1920 (ish) Bombers jumper that's been handed down from someone who played and it has a great story to it but I feel there is no place to put it bar FJ.com

Bit of a sponsor nut here.

On Ports sponsors, you have the incorrect years for the Vodafone logo that you have listed from 2005 to 2007. It's only from 2005 to 2006. The 2007 one is like the 2008-2009 one, only the red panel is wider, closer to the 2002-2004 version: http://s.afl.com.au/staticfile/AFL Tenant/PortAdelaide/Images/In-article images/1_AFL Round 18 - Adelaide v Port Adelaide (JM) 562.JPG

Also, I saw Matthew Primus wear the 2002-2004 Vodafone logo in 2005 a couple of times: http://cache1.asset-cache.net/gc/53101266-matthew-primus-of-port-gets-away-from-josh-gettyimages.jpg?v=1&c=IWSAsset&k=2&d=OCUJ5gVf7YdJQI2Xhkc2QJ1yYzovcgrTqzAGw648Z8w0og76oNoQkQMnr392uE6BcIaifKaxocUfhPlHD5ViCw==.

You're also missing the AussieATM logo from 2010: http://resources0.news.com.au/images/2011/11/28/1226208/574956-port-power.jpg
and Soaring Securities sponsor from 2011: http://resources3.news.com.au/images/2011/10/14/1226167/056787-athan-lekkas.jpg

The MyATM logo in 2010 went through a few changes. In the preseason, it was primarily a white box with myATM on it: http://resources2.news.com.au/images/2010/03/23/1225844/260242-power.jpg

And the logo you have listed for 2010 only lasted through round 1 to round 10:and then it changed to the one you have listed for 2011 in round 11:
One last tidbit is Ports first AFL sponsor being Futuro in the preseason of 1997: http://s.afl.com.au/staticfile/AFL Tenant/PortAdelaide/Images/In-article images/1181788_620.jpg
I recall Mero you changed Port's sponsors correctly to this but reverted it back to the incorrect years and rounds. There's some other things I've found. The Vodafone logo from 2005-2006 was used in Round 18, 2004, one off that year

The 2009 Bianco "Construction Supplies" logo was used one off in Round 19, 2008.

The front of the Preseason guernsey from 1998-2002, used Scott's without the white rectangle panel.

The back of the Preseason guernsey in 1998 only, used the red 1997-1998 Vodafone logo without the white rectangle panel.

I don't know if you could count one player wearing a different logo, but if you do Primus in 2005, the Vodafone logo from 2002-2004 could be extended an extra year, as he wore it throughout that year. Alongside the other players wearing the 2005-2006 Vodafone logo.

Would it be possible to revert the sponsors dates to the original comment I made and the latest finds?

That's an interesting one! I reckon your right; they must have turned their jumpers inside-out.
If true it would have to be one of the first occasions a club wore a clash jumper. The white number panel introduced a few seasons later would have helped eliminate the issue (perhaps it influenced the decision to wear a white panel?), but I wonder what happened in the intervening years?

I like the idea, but I don't know where to put it.
I had plans for a new version of the site, and it would have gone there. currently www.footyguernseys.com
But so far it hasn't gotten very far.
