What really irritates me about these crap jumpers apart from representing the shade of Surrender is the simple fact that offten i have to double check to see if it is MY TEAM playing. 

It dilutes the connection between the member and club even if only slightly. I find it offensive. 

Would my family EVER think of altering the Family Tartan?

No.

As usual     It's all about money with the AFL and clubs

Most clubs bring out a clash jumper every year so supporters will buy the new design.    The AFL think that anything that bring money in is a good thing.

The only jumper I ever had was the one my mum knitted me back in the sixties which I wore with pride

I find the money grab insulting every year.   How much are supporters slugged for to buy jumpers?

As for the "clash" jumper..   What a load of crap by the AFL.....As I've said before I could tell the difference between teams on a bloody black and white TV. 

i'd be surprised if the mfc made more than tuppence 'appeny profit on their clash jumpers. in fact their whole merchandise setup doesn't seem very professional tucked away in the almost inaccesible bowels of the mcg.

there is no reason they couldn't make better profits from multiple fashionable customised versions of the traditional jumpers or just straight out new original designs. they don't necessarily have to be ones worn on match days. in fact the whole merchandising approach needs a refreshing complete overhaul

Might have been an issue at the beginning of 2016 when Channel 7 didn't broadcast the footy in HD (for some mind boggling reason).

But they miraculously flipped the switch half way through the year. I really don't see TV viewers' confusion as a valid reason any more.

why don't you find out and tell us?

Just having a slight issue getting all the first names and a phone number, will report back when I can, will have to ensure I phrase my question correctly...make sure I include 'hate' for the sheer emotional impact

You have never heard or participated in a survey before Satyr?

What a strange comment even from you. I mean really.

I would think the large majority would hate that white guernsey.

I understand that we need a white guernsey as per the rules and it's fine I can live with that. What I can't live with is some absolutely disgraceful effort to design a clash guernsey. It is honestly laughable and whoever approved it should have a hard look at themselves.

What/who the 121?

No, that you somehow think liking or not a clash jumoer somehow dictates a persons inclination to sign. 

They're mutually independent ideals.

It really should be very easy. For clubs that don't clash witht he predominantly blue jumper of our traditional strip then we should be wearing that. That would be most clubs I would think. For clubs that do clash with the traditional strip (Blues, Dogs, Maybe Adelaide and West Coast) then we wear our alternate strip. The alternate strip could be as simple as reversing the blue and red, surely if you clash with Dark Blue then you don't with red!

Even more easy is for supporters to send that message to the club,AFL, and New Balance by not buying their white jerseys in any form and wearing predominately blue and red when home and predominately red and blue when clashing likely.

a blue hat and a red hat can make that much difference on the TV screen.

That will put the wind up them.

Stick it to the man!

Mess with dlanders and risk wardrobe war.

I have spent years emailing the club in this issue and countless hours emailing them my designs, like the one I put up earlier. Cam Schwabb took one of the jumpers I designed ando posted here and made it a reality but didn't add the right width of blue outline around the red V. I really dunno why they don't get people to submit designs, make a shortlist and then vote. I have suggested this too.

You mean getting people to submit designs and vote like the Dorks did:

Ironically if you change the colours to red and blue, and obviously make it the MFC letters, the runner up would be something I would really like for Melbourne. 

And at the very least with a fan designed, and voted guernsey at least your giving your supporters a chance to make a choice for something they like. 

I would say take note MFC, but how the club can miss something this obvious staggers me.

The Dorks have colours of wees and poos! No wonder they want to add "white"!

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
