No White for MFC Clash Jumpers for Season 2018

Recommended Posts

So West Coast have launched their 2018 jumpers, going back to their 'traditional' royal blue and surprise surprise, a yellow and royal blue clash jumper with no white.  

https://www.foxsports.com.au/afl/west-coast-eagles-reveal-new-logo-and-jumpers-for-2018-afl-season-new-jumpers-for-saints-magpies/news-story/3e3e7101110249d44b60569046df28ff

So are the MFC and AFL going to continue to serve up this rubbish that all clubs must have a predominantly white clash jumper and make our team run around in one for half a dozen+ games a year?

Will MFC suporters continue to allow this?

There is no doubt the AFL will force us to wear a White “Clash” strip, which will make us clash with other jumpers far more than we do now. 

(Personally i don’t think we clash with anybody)

But the AFL have to force their rules down our throat...

they love Power and Dill has to justify his wage...

I must be the only one that doesn't mind wearing a white clash jumper for what averages to be once a month - yes ONCE a month.

I thought we had way more issues to worry about than a clash jumper.

Thought the jumper with the red back looked great - we played some good footy in that one too.

We don’t clash with anyone however the white makes us clash with St Kilda.

Why do we need an away jumper?

In the old days it was black and white shorts (and those were the days when a mud patch in the centre and in front of goals ensured both teams had black shorts at the end)!

These days there is no such problem (plus we have red socks as well)!

Could not give a toss what colour or clash jumpers are. Its just such a non-issue. 

I care more how we play the game, how many wins we will have and if we are going to make the finals.

It all about Essendon, we don't play home games against them because their clash jumper really isn't a clash jumper and me a small club that is bullied by the AFL to have a white jumper because the AFL don't have the courage to upset Essendon, same as Collingwood at least they have tried to this year and I think that is more on the back off Richmond having great success both on and off field with the Yellow clash strip

 The white jumper doesn't really bother me.

What bothers me is the outright hypocrisy of it all. The only "clash" is with Essendon...if you're blind and can't differentiate between black and dark navy blue.

I think every team should just have one alternate away strip for away games. Switch the colours around like Essendon and Richmond do.

Why we need two clash jumpers is beyond me.

Pretty sure someone was posting here a few weeks ago claiming that our clash jumper won't be white.  Didn't give it away, but I got the feeling it would be a red jumper with a blue v (opposite to our traditional strip).

Can't remember who is was, but I think they post here a bit.

How about a question mark in the title? I read it and was hopeful it had been given the boot. Bring back the disco blue.

Ironic failure to include question mark

Us wearing an appropriately coloured short - rather than the traditional white for away teams - would go a big way towards solving the problem.

Oh no we are wearing a clash jumper... the world is ending...

We wore royal fucken blue for years! We changed our traditional jumper and people still get upset over an away guernsey.

I posted this in another thread, but I can tell you, I was given info from a person connected to the MFC that suggested that the White clash while be done away with and that the new clash jumper will be "as traditional as it could be'. Make of that what you will. I pushed the guy for more details or for a release date, but he was tight lipped...which is fair enough. Based on what he told me, I am excited to see the design.

This.

If I was the AFL, I wouldn't want as many white clash jumpers. I can understand teams that have white as a main colour using a white clash jumper but one of the great attractions of the game is the bright and colourful jumpers.

It's taken them a long time but West Coast now realise this and have an yellow clash, Richmond's yellow clash is great and Adelaide's was excellent this year (sadly they are going back to white next year).
