Why the clash strip (which I love) against the brown and gold of Hawthorn?

Marketing?

I like the away strip, apart from the 70's flashbacks.

I wonder if it was an MFC decision or an AFL decision.

MFC decision = marketing

AFL decision = clash strip agenda

I thought you were talking about that Preuss idiot from Norf!

It is our away strip, and it looked the business!  Ps, it is also a winning strip...

Yes. As much as I really like the new clash strip there is just something about seeing us run out in the regular strip.

I have to agree.

I’d assume it was a marketing idea by the club, given it was AFLX and neither guernsey would have clashed with the Hawks, perhaps Herr Gil left it up to the club to decide which one we wore.

I'm going with the theory that there wasn't enough time for the regular strip to be washed and tumble dried in time for the Grand Final.

Easier to clean poo and wee off the clash strip than the traditional one?

ET there are some things I can believe that is not one of them. The AFL letting a club decide something !

i think just a bit of marketing and exposure by the club plus an opportunity to get some feedback

Having spent more time thinking about this than I really should have I've come to the conclusion that we ironically used our regular strip as our clash strip last night in the game against North.

In action, I thought the clash strip looked sensational (of course prefer our traditional red and blue). I agree it was not needed against the Hawks, but as others have said, I hope the club sold a few extra pieces as a result.

Agree 100%. Great strip that brings with it a spasmodic shudder. This would have been a perfect option for the clash strip poll @Demonland

I'm not one to be particularly emotional with any such emblem or jumper,  but I do like the new old jumper.  I will be getting one.

If you are worried about how either strip looks,  go to Instagram and Flashman36   and see how good Flash's twins playing Auskick look

I don't mind the new clash strip. I have seen the great Robbie Flower play in it, and every time I see it I think of him.

I'm not sure it's the colour per se that is different but perhaps the fact that the material has a sheen to it and is not made of wool that may be the visual difference.
