Its Footy Time

Friday, March 21st, 2014

The home and away AFL 2014 Football Season has commenced . Flag contenders Fremantle thrashed Collingwood , in the first game of the year . In the Harbour City , Greater Western Sydney beat their fellow Sydneysiders , the  Swans . In Queensland , the Suns beat the Tigers . Last Sunday night in Melbourne , Port Adelaide defeated Carlton . Thursday night footy saw Geelong hold off Adelaide to be victorious .  Could the 2014 season be one where the interstaters steal the flag ?

Friday night footy should be riveting between the Bombers and Kangaroos ,  in the wake of Tania Hird's spurious claims on the ABC , concerning her husband's involvement in the the illegal supplements saga.

The games to complete the round include the Hawks vs the Lions in Tasmania , the Saints play Melbourne on Saturday night , and the Eagles take on the Bulldogs at home in the West on Sunday .

Controversy is already rife in the AFL with the Hird saga being reprised , Buddy Franklin being cited as an overpaid bad boy of the Swans , and the cancellation of the cost of living allowance to Swans players . Are the Hirds bigger than the Game ? can the Crows afford Dangerfield , will the Saints win any games , and why doesn't North want rival teams to play their theme song before battle . Can Demetriou segue into comfortable retirement at the end of 2014 ? Will the invaders steal the ultimate prize of AFL Premiers , and can Richmond force an end to Jake Kings friendship with bikie gangster , Toby Mitchell .

 

AFL footy has got off to a ripping start , Season 2014 promises much , and fans are along for a bumpy ride wearing their new , old , preloved , vintage ,and retro football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys .

Some interesting results came from the weekend round of AFL matches . Several teams had wins following a string of losses , most notably the Bombers , Crows and Lions. A surprising outcome was the Bombers victory, over the previously undefeated Cats . Carlton thrashed the Tigers , and Collingwood defeated the Hawks , in front of a massive 84,000 crowd at the MCG .

The top four teams of the ladder seem set , the next four less so . Several teams are just outside the top eight , and need to keep winning , in order to secure a place in the Finals .

At this crucial point of the Season , fans supported their teams , wearing their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys , and enjoyed the spectacle of watching good  footy played .

Some questions remain .

Will the Players request for greater revenue from TV coverage rights , make a dent in Andrew Demetriou's offshore fish and chip fund ?

Can the Magpies win another Flag ?.

When will the media stop reporting on Eddie McGuire's every  spoken word, and action?
