ANZAC game jumper

Recommended Posts

Just saw our jumper (and the tiges which was also well done) on AFL360 and I think they have once again given a great image.

I always worry with things like this that they end up looking poor, but my kudos to those who designed/signed off on it.

Its subtle but I found my eye drawn to it.

Beautiful in its simplicity. A very touching motif. Well done.

Each club should be instructed to have the  Anzac badge placed on the guernsey only rather than any other graphical changes.

That’s simplicity.

But generally agree bub that this seems to be quite well done - not overdone.

World War motif adjacent to a Swiss financial company logo seems a tad . . . unsavoury?

(Please note however that Zurich has, on the surface at least, taken corporate responsibility seriously in recent times and has also previously led initiatives in the insurance sector for holocaust reparations).

Nothing beats last years an amazing jumper 

Agreed. Our 2017 jumper had on the back, the silhouette of the lone bugler standing in a battle field which was very moving. 

It seems Richmond have copied the idea.  This year they have a silhouette of a lone soldier standing in a poppy field.  Not quite as moving as the bugler tho.

I like that again the club has captured the spirit of ANZAC by having the silhouette of a soldier carrying his fallen mate.  A tingling image.

I assume Rich have a clash jumper for this game or do they not qualify as the "big" away team??

Funny boy!  Of course not!  They have their traditional yellow sash on black...!

It's a goody. Better than that white contraption that was previously endorsed. We are Red and Blue. The rising sun badge looks good.

I still cannot understand why richmond aren't made to wear a clash jumpers.  Both navy and black are dark colours and they should be forced to wear that yellow inverted jumper.  The AFL have no consistency on this issue.

No I've regularly aired my concerns over the matter on this forum SWYL. Just making the point once again. It'd be nice to see the MFC make comment, but we don't do that.

I don’t agree in this instance on them wearing a clash strip. We didn’t wear our clash strip (or white) for their home game last year. If it wasn’t for ANZAC day round then I’d have an issue, but I like that we’re both wearing our traditional strips this week. 

Also like both teams running out through the same banner. Classy.

This one’s a bit of a throw-back to the 2016 jumper, which had the silhouette of the lone soldier.  The simplicity is good, but if the AFL want this to be ANZAC round, then the rising sun should be in place of the AFL logo.  Would focus the attention on the important symbols (sponsors aside).

I agree with your comment about AFL's lack of consistency on this (or almost any) issue. But I disagree that Richmond should wear a clash jumper. That's because I don't believe clash jumpers are ever necessary.

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.   The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that two ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M
