Football Jumpers at the Races ?

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

The Melbourne Cup,  has been run and won , and its all over bar the shouting .

Traditionally , the Cup, attracts the more unusual attire, amongst punters and racegoers .

The Members area , Sponsors Marquees , and Fashions on the Field,  promote stylish , conservative race day apparel.

Some attendees , wishing to have fun , often dress outrageously , or in a themed mode of dress . With many racegoers , being Collingwood supporters , it begs the question , " Was the traditional black and white of race day , adopted by fans , wearing football jumpers ?"

Increasingly, the humble football jumper , jersey , guernsey , has made a foray into social events , why not the Races ?

Was a Retro Richmond Jumper worn to the Races ?

Half Way through the Season

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

This weekend of AFL football matches is round 11 .It is the half way mark for the 22 round season .

Teams that are clear winners are Geelong and Collingwood . There is another group of teams that are in the middle range like St Kilda and Sydney Swans .

More teams further down the League ladder eg Essendon are hoping to continue their winning form so they can play in the Finals.

Richmond Tigers languishing on the bottom of the ladder recorded their first win last weekend .  It was a gritty , surprise victory over Port Power in SA at AAMI stadium in the rain .

Tipsters , amateur and professional alike are having difficulty picking winners .

Grannies in retirement homes are picking winners more accurately than the experts.

It wouldn't be AFL footy without the air of uncertainty .

Loyal fans , wearing their football jumper, jersey , guernsey attend their teams Games no matter their form ie ; Friday night's tussle between Saints and Tigers is believed to be a sell-out.

Whatever its outcome the fans come dressed in their football jumper to watch one of the greatest spectacles in the world.

The humble footy match .
