Detroit Red Wings,
On the MELB ANZAC jumper it looks theyve managed to also squeeze the mcc logo back onto it again

View attachment 1110859

The MFC Anzac jumpers were made for 2020, but not used obviously dud to Covid. They were reused this year with heat pressed Anzac logo and heat pressed neck sponsor which is why the mcc logo is on it

The numbers will be higher touching the red part, whereas the 2021 jumpers have the numbers lower

GWS Indigenous:
  • Design in the G shows too much of sun on left side
  • Orange on back of collar
  • Thicker white outline on numbers (Uniform image is OK, jumper image needs more)
  • Back design follows the curve of the side seam
  • Shorts striping
  • Lower totem on front is more horizontal (tail goes further right than turtle)

Hawthorn had an ANZAC jumper this year - bit hard to see exactly what it says in the writing under the ANZAC logo maybe someone has a better close up pic.

Did North really wear same coloured shorts against the Eagles, Lions and Bulldogs? I remember seeing a footage of North vs Fitzroy on the news before so I know it happened but hard to believe how the AFL allowed so for least 2 years.

Same with Geelong wearing home shorts vs Demons (and vice versa). Did light coloured teams get off or something back in the late 80s-early 90s?

north wore the exact same kit in every game without so much as an alternate pair of socks for two seasons? wild

that's interesting, for long periods of the club's early history striped socks were the norm, for the home kit they've been all blue since 1971. anyone know when the striped socks came back for away kits?
Unless I missed an earlier one, the first one I came across on www.footyjumpers.com was this:

I played Ammos in the 80s

No, they wore White shorts.
What I found was I had saved the 1991 image as both Home and Away with Blue shorts.
I made a White short 1991 image and the information is now correct.


In regard to Geelong and Melbourne.
The League's intention was to add colour to the game by having clubs wear coloured shorts where possible.
They only wore White shorts when their opponent wore the same colour Home shorts as them.
Sydney only wore Home shorts in this era, and no-one else had their colour shorts, Hawthorn only wore White shorts when they played Away to Brisbane

Melbourne wore Royal Blue from 1975 to 1986.
However, when they changed to Navy Blue in 1987, the VFL seemed to be slow to realise that.
(In those days the VFL sent a fax to the clubs on the Wednesday before the game telling them what they were wearing that week)
They wore Navy shorts in almost every game, with three games in White shorts.
So it seems they either forgot they changed, or didn't update their files, or something similar.

Here's the 1987 game between Geelong and Melbourne
