    What jumper should your club mainly wear?

    Been some talk by members on the forum lately about the various jumpers/strips their team is wearing. I know for marketing purposes/ revenue raising, each club comes out with new designs every year (well, except for the pies lol) but they tend to tinker too much with what does look good.

    Speaking for myself, it shits me to tears seeing the tri-panel jumper WCE have adopted for quite a few years as our home jumper - navy blue, white & gold. Our original colours were royal blue & gold which I loved with the wings, no white. It was different to all the other club jumpers, stood out & the wings I thought looked great. We actually wore the strip I like in our round 23 game last year v Gold Coast :-

    How much better does that strip look compared to our current "home' strip?


    There has been quite a movement to bring back back the old strip - a "Bring Back our Wings" drive started last year & the club actually asked our members to vote which was very encouraging. The old design with the royal blue/gold & wings was the most popular by far (no surprise) & the media manager of WCE Gary Stocks actually met with the people who organized the Bring Back our Wings petition. Looks like some real progress has been made & he has hinted there could well be a new home jumper for season 2016 for WCE... I it is the jumper pictured above.

    Interested to hear others opinions on the subject

    Pretty self explanatory for the Crows. We should wear the Tri-Colours unless absolutely necessary not to.
    This post was more than likely SC based.
    If in doubt, assume it was.

    Black, red sash. 142 years of it.

    I think most of the clashes can be resolved with shorts. There's a couple which can't, but the clash jumpers are just marketing rubbish in the main. I loved seeing Geelong in white shorts and Freo in purple despite it being Geelong's home game; common sense.

    I reckon if every club had 3 different colour shorts and the AFL was put in charge of deciding which shorts are worn in each game, things would be much better.

    Eagles should absolutely wear those...

    Freo should absolutely wear it's current ones and not the green abomination from their earlier days!

    Melbourne should wear the red MFC logo one as often as possible but also the black and white versions of it where needed.

    Swans barely tinker with ours, I like this. Though I must say I really liked our yellow preseason training jumper from about 4 years ago, still annoyed I didn't buy one... I don't mind our striped jersey either but wouldn't want us to wear it very often at all.

    But most importantly... I think we can all agree that Hawthorn should wear this as often as possible...

    For our away strip, it's such a no brainer. Use this for games where there's a genuine clash (not many) and the traditional jumper with white shorts for everything else.

    Never argue with a fool. They'll drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
