One would have to be a diehard to have actually bought a Melbourne Football Club membership within the last decade, so I'd actually say that there are a fair few die hards amongst us.

I've yet to come across a true Demons supporter in my cohort that doesn't hate our any of the white/grey clash jumpers the team has worn since the ill founded conception of them.

I've been fortunate enough to play   for two country clubs that had traditional Melbourne jumpers 

Rye Demons ( Before 1973 )and Wodonga Demons (now Wodonga  Raiders )

Pulling on that jumper the one I fell in love with as a six year old filled me with pride and made playing so much more enjoyable 

Not sure a basically white jumper would have had the same effect, but as I have said before I am an Old Fart

Looks like they are trying to embed that logo so are using the clash jumper to do so.

I am tired of arguing about the white so I am numb to clash Guernseys, I just want to win...

Amen to that rpfc. Winning is the thing and I don't care what we are wearing.

Trying to embed that logo...like the one on your profile rpfc? ...and the one after that.

Logos come and go, but the MFC's red V on blue is enduring.

Seems the Brisbane Bears are the latest ones doing away with the white clash:

http://www.triplem.com.au/melbourne/sport/afl/news/2016/10/brisbane-lions-release-bears-inspired-clash-guernsey/#

The Brisbane Lions have emailed members with an exclusive sneak-peak of their 2017 clash guernsey.

The mostly-gold design is inspired by the Brisbane Bears, as modelled by former stars Richard Champion and Roger Merrett.

Josh Schache is the current player shown wearing the jumper, whose late father, Laurence, also played for the Bears.

I get what they're trying to do, but that looks awful.

But, presumably, it does keep the AFL happy, as it DOES have white on it!  (Not very much, but some...!  LOL)

but the afl  say they are only happy with predominately white, though as we are increasingly seeing this is selectively applied 

the opportunity for change (mfc) is growing with the afl seemingly being more lenient on this requirement. the ball is with the mfc i feel

What about something like the white sandringham dragons jumper with the red and blue V from the tac cup? Replace the dragon with a version of the new logo.

If someone can upload a picture of it that would be great. For some reason the website won't allow me....

Edit - check the picture at the top of this link from the MFC website.

Agreed, the only white that should be on a MFC jumper are the players numbers on the back and a small amount on the front for the AHG sponsors logo.

What 1% and of them who will drop their membership because of it. 

For 99% they may think it is less than ideal but it is not important in the scheme of things.

Winning games is the chief priority for 99% of members the clash jumper is way down the bottom of their perceived problems.

Don't disagree that winning is the priority but identity which is is reinforced through adherence to the mantra of the red and blue can imbue confidence and assurance that can simplify the focus on performance.

I wrote and got the following reply - which I appreciate but expect as a member.

Thanks for taking the time to contact the Melbourne Football Club and giving us your feedback on our 2017 clash Guernsey.

 

We are working with the AFL already in relation to our 2018 clash Guernsey options and around some of the inconsistencies between clubs and what has been approved.

 

It is the Club's strong preference to wear our home Guernsey all of the time however the AFL require all clubs to have a clash strip for when we play teams with similar colours to our own.  The reasons for this are quality of broadcast - ease of the viewer to tell the teams apart when watching on television and, the integrity of the competition in terms of players being able to easily tell the opposition players apart from team mates in a contest.

 

AFL guidelines insist that we have a predominantly white clash jumper for 'clash' reasons.

 

We have tried a number of designs that don’t include white but none of those designs reduce the clash issues with all the teams the AFL determine us to clash with.

 

As our Guernsey’s need to be approved by the AFL before proceeding to production in May/June the year prior to the season they are to be worn, without a fixture it is impossible to determine if in fact we could wear a clash Guernsey that isn't predominantly white. 

 

For the past two season we have kept a similar design.  The 2017 design has allowed us to include more red and blue whilst remaining predominantly white.  

 

Thank you for your feedback and ongoing support it is greatly appreciated

 

So write it encourages the club to act.

I'm sick of hearing the line that "we are not one of the power clubs, thus we have no chance of getting a favourable outcome on this and other matters for the MFC...".

It's great are well on the on-field road to recovery (and as you suggest most that want away with white clash jumpers would agree that is the priority), but it's about time that we started acting like winners off the field as well, stand up and take pride in our club and it's identity, rather than adopting a weak loosers attitude that some seem happy to accept.

Are you sure the club is against a white jumper RBG?

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    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
