The third round of matches for the 2011 AFL Season, saw Collingwood beat Carlton , Geelong thrash Port , Western Bulldogs annihilate the Gold Coast Suns , Freo beat Adelaide , Sydney outplay the Eagles , and Hawthorn thrash Richmond .
St Kilda’s dismal start to the season continued when they performed poorly against the youthful Bombers in show off red shorts , and Melbourne snatched defeat from the Brisbane Lions . Collingwood appear unstoppable in their relentless pursuit of the 2011 premiership flag . A record breaking crowd of 88, 000 + delirious fans revelled , in the unfurling of the 2010 premiers flag , pre match at the MCG.
All weekend , fans streamed into grounds in their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys , to watch from the grandstands ,Â listen via radio , or view the Match on TVÂ .
Nothing beats the fast action , or the adrenaline rush , when your team hits the front . Its not for the faint hearted , nor are the new style football jumpers / guernseys , which mould to fit the players body shape like a glove !
