All around the country on cold , weekend mornings , young kids are playingÂ AFL football, in local competitions and clinicsÂ .
Parents ,often nursing hangovers , or lack of sleep , watch on, whilst their youngsters play .
Each kid is usually kitted out,Â in their AFL,Â football jumper , jersey , guernsey .
All 16 AFL teams are represented .
Obviously , parochial favouritism of local teams occurs , but generally each player has a liking , family history , or reason,Â for supporting their team, and wearing the jumper .
Many , wear the number of a favourite player , on their back .
A kaleidoscope of colours , teams , allegiances in football jumpers, on a local scale .
AFL Football , is alive and well at grass roots level , as well as on the bigger stage.
