The RecLink Cup puts the fun back in Footy

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

It was good old fashioned Footy Fun at the RecLink Cup on Sunday .

Who wore this on the Day ?

Who wore this on the Day ?

At the Elsternwick VAFA Ground the wasted , grizzled Espy Rockdogs took on the fit looking Megahertz .

Kids on the oval kicked battered Sherrins around , hip young things wore Vintage Footy Jumpers , made before they were born , and the queue snaked around the ubiquitous beer tent .

Pre , half – time and after match entertainment was provided by local muso’s  , who covered many great Aussie Rock songs penned by Nick Cave .

Dogs ( canine variety) ,  stationed around the boundary   , whined when their namesakes  rolled out a transvestite cheer squad. Undaunted , their team  , displaying beer paunches and tragic hairdos , went on to snatch victory from the slick  Megahertz .

The Megahertz walked the walk and talked the talk emblazoned in their garish,  red and white striped footy jumpers . They supplied a resplendent , baton twirling ,  group of femme fatale , Hertzettes  cheer leaders .

Good sort Dan Sultan , led the Dogs , who played in the red , yellow and black  indigenous coloured footy jumpers  , to victory . The Hertz had their colours lowered on the day and have put their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys away for next years re-match .

Not a bad day’s entertainment , all for $5 in the kitty , for the RecLink organisation  .

Round 13

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011


Round 13 , Lucky for some ? The relieved Bulldogs,  finally had a win by beating the luckless Crows , and the Hawks thrashed the Sun Lovers from the North , the GCSFC, in arctic conditions in Tasmania . In cold old Melbourne Town, the Blues beat the Sydneysiders , and the Melbourne FC , annihilated the Dockers , on a wintery day at the MCG .

NMFC continued its winning run , of four in a row , beating a deflated Bombers side . The Cats beat the Saints , who were wearing , predominantly  all black , football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys. The Lions were beaten by the Tigers , and West Coast beat the Power  . Collingwood , had the bye and celebrated by sending some players to Arizona , bemoaning Daisy’s suspension , and holding a garage sale of superseded gear , of  the back of a truck !

AFL Football Jumpers , of all colours were worn over the weekend , some traditional , some not . Its past the half way mark of the Season , and the top 4 seem set . These are all  Victorian teams , with proud history’s of winning flags , and all boast  strong claims to this years flag . The next three teams outside this group , are interstate teams .

Fans are watching , and are enjoying their footy   , whilst wearing their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys .



Tasmanian Football Jumpers

Saturday, June 11th, 2011

Just spent some time in Tasmania, where the hot news item was whether Hobart , could attract the North Melbourne FC, to play two AFL Games at Bellerive Oval .

NMFC to Play AFL Footy in Hobart

NMFC to Play AFL Footy in Hobart

“North versus South” screamed the Mercury newspaper Headline,  in downtown Hobart . A local was heard to remark ” I can’t believe those people in the North .They are so parochial not wanting Hobart to have footy . ‘

Such is the passion that AFL Footy ignites , its not even interstate rivalry but intercity rivalry , causing squabbling between the two as to who plays where and when .

NMFC, are to play in Hobart , Hawthorn , are to continue to play in Launceston . Will the locals see a team of 22 professional Footballers , pull on the new Tasmanian Football Team Jumpers, to take their place in the expanded national AFL Competition ?
