AFL Preliminary Finals

Monday, September 16th, 2019

Its AFL Finals time. Last weekend matches saw victories and losses with the Eagles and Lions both being eliminated. The Geelong Cats overcame last years premiers the West Coast Eagles in a strong finish to run out winners by twenty points. Key Cats player Tom Hawkins was reported and hopes to stave off a one match suspension enabling him to play against the Richmond Tigers on Friday night. The winner goes through to the Grand Final.

Can the Western Bulldogs win against Greater Western Sydney and re-ignite their fairy tale premiership of 2016 playing from the unpopular spot of seventh on the ladder. Will the Bombers find the Eagles unbeatable at home in Perth after a laudable finish at eighth spot.

Trade Periods, Weddings and Holidays

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

The AFL trade period has been and gone . Free agent players may still be on the market holding out for the elusive better deal. Many players have transferred to new clubs for lucrative cash deals for both them, and their new clubs. Many players have retired or been delisted by their clubs which may mean forced retirement or cause them to seek a new playing position elsewhere.

Traditionally during  the holiday period players marry, travel, await the impending birth of family or unwind. After a short rest period training starts in earnest with a focus on the 2019 AFL Season.

Many retire their AFL jumpers, jerseys, guernseys for the year but not all do. It can be seen at gyms, on the beach, out shopping, visiting relatives and playing beach volleyball. If their team has had a successful 2018 campaign the jumpers, jerseys, guernseys are displayed proudly. If their team has had a lacklustre season loyal fans still wear the colours proudly, perhaps eliciting a comment from other fans or those with a keen interest in Aussie Rules.

The 2019 AFL Home and Away Season will see a new round of guernseys with new sponsors but a constant is the team colours and the unfailing loyalty to those colours of the diehard AFL fan.
