Jumpers for Easter

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

Instead of the traditional chocolate Egg for Easter have you considered giving a football jumper as a gift ?

In these days of weight consciousness , childhood obesity and record numbers of people being overweight and unhealthy it could be a valid gift idea.
The child or adult recipient could be so delighted with your alternative gift idea they will eschew chocolate for a lifetime .

You could be setting up a novel alternative to the chocolate easter egg and ensuring healthy eating habits are instilled.

Just a thought .

In the modern age football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys are available for all shapes and sizes . They range from tiny baby , 1 year old , up to XXXXL adult size which is quite a generous fit on most adults.

Do something healthy this Easter.Make everyone happy , giver , receiver and anxious parents.

Don’t be afraid to start a new trend of the giving of football jumpers , jerseys, guernseys.

A record crowd watched the two teams Richmond play Carlton on thursday night at the MCG. More record crowds are expected as the rest of the round is played tonight and over the weekend .Fans everywhere are wearing their team colours jumper , jersey , guernsey . It will be interesting to see in some of the match ups whether teams have to change or modify their traditional strip to avoid confusion over colour clash.The usual home and away strips are usually adopted by the respective clubs unless there is an obvious clash of colours . Often in these situations different coloured shorts are  worn . In recent years there has also been a trend by clubs towards wearing a white away or clash jumper , jersey ,guernsey.

First and Last Game Honours

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

Matthew Richardson the likeable Tasmanian footballer announced his retirement from the Richmond FC over the summer break.

Tonight he will be honoured as one of the all time great players when he walks a lap of honour around the MCG.

This walk is pre game entertainment prior to the first match of the 2010 AFL Season between Richmond and Carlton .

There has been much coverage of this event in the media and cardboard cut out face masks of ‘Richo’ are available .

Large numbers of fans off both teams will be at the game in their team colour jumper , jersey , guernsey , some with the masks.

This repeats a trend that has developed when great players retire . A recent example was when Robert Harvey retired from the St Kilda Saints.

Avid supporters will wear or hold up the “Richo” mask above their jumper , jersey , guernsey.

It raises the question about other players retirements.

When Barry Hall retires from the Western Bulldogs will the MCG be awash with cardboard cut outs of his face . A very scary thought!
