Ever heard of paragraphs? FMD that's a painful read. Anyway, to summarise: Holding the AFL up as a bastion of continuity and tradition is rubbish. 90% of clubs' current logos have been instituted within the last 10-15 years, guernsey designs yes - home designs for the most part persist (but have changed over time for most teams), but they too have many wacky away or clash jumpers. They're called St George Illawarra Agreed re: Manly, they've nailed the design. To be honest, I think you're agitating for something the clubs mostly recognise. The majority of clubs have either continued with or reverted to a simple classic look from eras you refer to. There are still a handful of clubs struggling for identity, but that's the case with any code. Basically I think you're getting worked up over something that isn't a big issue anymore.
