The AFL has answered the game's latest jumper clash conundrum, with the Grand Final to follow tradition and see both the Demons and Bulldogs wear home guernseys for the season decider.
As first reported by AAP's Shayne Hope, the league is set to permit the Dogs to wear their predominately blue home kit despite being the away side, with Luke Beveridge's men to run out onto Optus Stadium in white shorts.
The drought-breaking victory soon saw the alternate jumper as a key chapter in the win, despite Tigers fans and followers fuming in the week ahead.
Four years later, Bulldogs fans will be happy to see the AFL sway in favour of tradition.
The Dogs and Demos were both able to sport their home jumpers in their latest meeting in Round 19, with the boys from Whitten Oval trotting out onto the MCG with white shorts.
However, the corresponding fixture saw the Demons have to shelve their stunning Indigenous jumper minutes before their Round 11 match, with the predominantly red design being too similar to the Dogs' majority blue guernsey.
The AFL has looked to resonate tradition back into the 1954 Grand Final rematch and allow both clubs to wear their home jumpers, not opting for the Bulldogs to wear their white-dominated away jumper.
Collingwood and Essendon fans were left to deal with this year's ANZAC Day match having both sides predominantly sport black jumpers, with the Bombers' white shorts offering little to differ the teams once the game was underway.
