Vics still Legends

Monday, July 11th, 2011

The annual Legends Game , was played last Tuesday night at Etihad Stadium . The Big V , who were gamely captained by ‘ Kouta ‘ , retired Carlton superstar , and shambolically coached by Sam Newman , ex – Geelong Ruckman , snatched victory from the jaws of defeat .

25,000 fans , were treated to a night of on and off field entertainment , when the greats pulled on the boots , and thundered onto Etihad Stadium.

Rocca, kicked the Sherrin out of the Ground , Martyn’s defence was watertight, and Straunchie scrounged the packs .The AllStars , who are the show pony’s of the competition , razzled , dazzled , and tried to steal the game with goal sneak Fitzy’s , kick after the siren .

The mighty Vics remained staunch , and proved again , when push comes to shove they’ve still got what it takes . Sure , bigger size footy jumpers were worn,  and the footy shorts waistbands have expanded , plus there is an explosion of bald heads on the ground , but Victoria proved why it’s still the birthplace , and spiritual home of AFL Footy.

It was a win all round , as fans wearing their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys , enjoyed the spectacle , and gave funds to the EJ Whitten Foundation, who support people with cancer. Ted, wouldv’e been thrilled as the Vics , managed to “Stick it up ’em”.

Ins and Outs

Some interesting results came from the weekend round of AFL matches . Several teams had wins following a string of losses , most notably the Bombers , Crows and Lions. A surprising outcome was the Bombers victory, over the previously undefeated Cats . Carlton thrashed the Tigers , and Collingwood defeated the Hawks , in front of a massive 84,000 crowd at the MCG .

The top four teams of the ladder seem set , the next four less so . Several teams are just outside the top eight , and need to keep winning , in order to secure a place in the Finals .

At this crucial point of the Season , fans supported their teams , wearing their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys , and enjoyed the spectacle of watching good  footy played .

Some questions remain .

Will the Players request for greater revenue from TV coverage rights , make a dent in Andrew Demetriou’s offshore fish and chip fund ?

Can the Magpies win another Flag ?.

When will the media stop reporting on Eddie McGuire’s every  spoken word, and action?
