Clash of Jumpers

Monday, March 31st, 2014

Gorgeous autumn weather drew big crowds to the footy in Melbourne over the weekend . Several close finishes thrilled fans who revelled in the sunshine and fast paced action. The Demons played the Eagles on Saturday night at the MCG , a  game which saw both teams play in dark blue football jumpers . A navy blue home strip was worn by the Demons , and a dark blue clash strip was worn by the Eagles .

Surely a better choice would,ve been for the Eagles to wear white or yellow guernseys , under lights , at night ? Several Demons players hand – balled to the opposition on a least two occasions in the second quarter . It didn’t affect the result of the game , but the AFL need to adopt a pragmatic approach to the wearing of home and away strips  , of teams football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys.

Its Footy Time

Friday, March 21st, 2014

The home and away AFL 2014 Football Season has commenced . Flag contenders Fremantle thrashed Collingwood , in the first game of the year . In the Harbour City , Greater Western Sydney beat their fellow Sydneysiders , the  Swans . In Queensland , the Suns beat the Tigers . Last Sunday night in Melbourne , Port Adelaide defeated Carlton . Thursday night footy saw Geelong hold off Adelaide to be victorious .  Could the 2014 season be one where the interstaters steal the flag ?

Friday night footy should be riveting between the Bombers and Kangaroos ,  in the wake of Tania Hird’s spurious claims on the ABC , concerning her husband’s involvement in the the illegal supplements saga.

Controversy is already rife in the AFL with the Hird saga being reprised , Buddy Franklin being cited as an overpaid bad boy of the Swans , and the cancellation of the cost of living allowance to Swans players . Are the Hirds bigger than the Game ? can the Crows afford Dangerfield , will the Saints win any games , and why doesn’t North want rival teams to play their theme song before battle . Can Demetriou segue into comfortable retirement at the end of 2014 ? Will the invaders steal the ultimate prize of AFL Premiers , and can Richmond force an end to Jake Kings friendship with bikie gangster , Toby Mitchell .

 

AFL footy has got off to a ripping start , Season 2014 promises much , and fans are along for a bumpy ride wearing their new , old , preloved , vintage ,and retro football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys .
