I am not trying to start an arguement with any Magpies fans with this, but I was wondering how everybody feels about McGuire and Eddiewood on the issue on changing their strip for the away game against Port Adelaide..Do you think clubs should be changing strips if guernsies clash? Can you get away from tradition?

One thing I know...bring it on tomorrow night..GO PORT!

Clubs like St Kilda should be given cash rewards for having the foresight and balls to come up with a clearly different away guernsey.

Clubs like Essendon, Richmond and Carlton should take a good hard look at themselves for not even trying to come up with one.

Collingwood needs to grow a brain and realise they clash with a couple of clubs and need to develop a different design - including colours - for away matches vs the likes of Port and the Kangaroos.

West Coast need to chill the fcuk out, pick a home guernsey and an away one and keep them for longer than 5 minutes. They've had roughly 7000 different designs since they came into the comp.

Anyway, when all is said and done AFL is the only sport in the world where teams run out wearing the same colours and designs and only a minority think there's something wrong with that. If anyone reckons there's nothing wrong with the guernsey schemes as they are take another look at the 2000 grand final between Essendon and Melbourne - a visual disgrace.

"They picked on the wrong man - and the wrong country. It was like pouring petrol onto a fire as far as I was concerned.

There's an old saying that the dog that barks loudest never bites. They did a lot of barking but we bit them pretty hard. Uruguay's attitude just showed how scared they were of us - it was their last resort."

All teams should have an away jumper. That is all

As much as tradition comes into it, I have to agree. All teams need an away jumper with a new design and maybe even colours.

If Richmond dont want to change their colours thay should try changing it around to all yellow with a black diagonal line. I doubt any teams would get confused if they were to do this.
