A team not wanting to adopt a new footy jumper,  are the North Melbourne Kangaroos . They will wear their traditional striped home jumper , in the game against Collingwood Magpies, at the weekend .  As the home team, this is their  choice  , and they are opposing the Magpies , who refuse to adopt a clash strip . Confusion for all , or a clever marketing ploy ? Traditional jumpers , to be worn in a match , to be held at the traditional Saturday afternoon footy game time of 2.10pm.

Footy’s Back

Monday, March 28th, 2011

Round One of the AFL Home and Away Season,  was played out over the weekend. Many games were close contests , with the victors  winning by one or two points . Collingwood and Essendon were the notable exceptions . Both teams thrashed their opposition  . The Swans and Demons , staged a thrilling draw at the MCG , and the Saints , were unlucky to be beaten by one point by the Cats , in the closing minutes of play . New Queensland team, the Gold Coast Suns had a bye .

The AFL , marked the opening of the 2011 Season,  by providing rock band entertainment , asking team players to assemble to sing the National Anthem, and inviting  recently retired players to toss the coin for the first bounce of the ball.

There were many highlights , such as Jack Riewoldt kicking six goals for the Richmond Tigers . The dominance of Collingwood is still apparent , and the resurgence of the Bombers has ignited their fans passions  .

Many watched , many went to the Game , and many wore their football jumper , jersey , guernsey .
