21 Reasons to go to the Footy this Weekend

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018

It is Round 21 of the AFL Home and Away Season . As the end of the season draws closer many teams are competing to play in the 2018 AFL Final Series.

 

Richmond, the 2017 Premiers are firmly on top of the AFL Ladder , one game ahead of nearest rival,  the West Coast Eagles. Below the Eagles are six teams all with the same win and loss ratio. Two teams are just outside the top eight, trailing those above by just one game. At the other end of the ladder three teams share the bottom four spots with four wins. Carlton is on the bottom of the ladder with just two wins.

The top eight teams are closely matched with four Victorian clubs represented, and four interstate sides . This poses the question will it be a local derby for the 2018 Grand Final?  Or as in 2017 and 2016, will the Victorians play an interstate side to seize victory ? Time will tell as the 2018 AFL Football Season progresses.

With the advent of televised games, and games played at various times of the day and night it was inevitable that a variation on the humble football jumper, jersey, guernsey became necessary.

Football commentators, fellow players, fans, watchers and listeners, unable to be at the game needed to be able to differentiate between the players of each club.

Most clubs have adopted an away or clash strip.  It uses their teams basic colours but also uses white, grey or expands on one of the traditional colours.

A good example of this are the Richmond Tigers football jumper, jersey, guernsey that has a greater use of yellow in their away strip than that of the traditional home guernsey. St Kilda Saints football club have employed a greater use of the colour white. Essendon Bombers football club have incorporated the  use of the colour grey into their away strip .
