Originally confined to the home and away clash series of jumpers, now they are used for celebrations, special matches, fundraisers and to draw attention to specific causes.

Stkilda have played in a purple guernsey to highlight captain, Nick Riewoldt's sister Maddie, and her fatal battle with cancer. All clubs have participated in the Dreamtime series of guernseys to show respect, and honour the contribution that indigenous players have made to AFL football.

Carlton Football Club started the trend of wearing non traditional jumpers back in 1997, when they donned a light blue guernsey, to celebrate the launch of a new flavour of M&M. They were a CFC sponsor at that time.

Anzac day matches have been addressed by the clubs wearing an Anzac insignia or logo on the front of the guernsey, as  worn in the Saints versus Swans, Anzac day game in New Zealand. Collingwood and Essendon have a badge on the front of their guernseys to commenorate the diggers for their epic Anzac day clash at the MCG.

The Crows just edged out the Lions on the Gabba .

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.

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?

Can CFC make it 16?

The relieved Bulldogs,  finally had a win by beating the luckless Crows , and the Hawks thrashed the Sun Lovers from the North , the GCSFC, in arctic conditions in Tasmania . In cold old Melbourne Town, the Blues beat the Sydneysiders , and the Melbourne FC , annihilated the Dockers , on a wintery day at the MCG .

NMFC continued its winning run , of four in a row , beating a deflated Bombers side . The Cats beat the Saints , who were wearing , predominantly  all black , football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys. The Lions were beaten by the Tigers , and West Coast beat the Power  .

The Richmond Tigers, wore jumpers with a local indigenous artists painting , replacing the yellow of their traditional sash strip . It was  a bold move that paid off  as this new style jumper , jersey , guernsey ,  proved a match winner for them in their game against the Bombers .

Geelong, managed a two point win over a fast finishing Carlton Blues side , in a fitting tribute to  Club Legend , Bob Davis , who passed away , earlier in the week .
