Last night at Etihad Stadium , in Melbourne ,43,000 fans watched the dynamic Carlton Blues beat a lacklustre St Kilda Saints team.

In a bold marketing initiative ,the AFL has scheduled a Monday night game for the second year in a row.

It attracted an almost capacity crowd .

Fans were out in their jumpers , jerseys, guernseys.

Could this be the start of more Monday night Games ?

Two new AFL teams , Greater West Sydney and Gold Coast , are scheduled to join the competition in 2011.

The AFL has to find new ways to extend the fixture . A match played on a Monday night might be a viable option.
