Tasmanian Football Jumpers

Saturday, June 11th, 2011

Just spent some time in Tasmania, where the hot news item was whether Hobart , could attract the North Melbourne FC, to play two AFL Games at Bellerive Oval .

NMFC to Play AFL Footy in Hobart

NMFC to Play AFL Footy in Hobart

"North versus South" screamed the Mercury newspaper Headline,  in downtown Hobart . A local was heard to remark " I can't believe those people in the North .They are so parochial not wanting Hobart to have footy . '

Such is the passion that AFL Footy ignites , its not even interstate rivalry but intercity rivalry , causing squabbling between the two as to who plays where and when .

NMFC, are to play in Hobart , Hawthorn , are to continue to play in Launceston . Will the locals see a team of 22 professional Footballers , pull on the new Tasmanian Football Team Jumpers, to take their place in the expanded national AFL Competition ?

Time Traveller Football Jumpers ?

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

AFL team Sydney Swans , home to Carlton at the SCG , took to the ground in red and white hooped jumpers , with 150 emblazoned on them . Is this an historic strip ? or was it an attempt to commemorate an occasion . ?It was a red and white jumper , jersey , guernsey , but bore little resemblance to either their home or clash strip . This hoop style of stripes has long been the traditional style jersey of the Geelong Football Club .

Despite this repackaging of the Swans , humble footy jumper , Carlton were the winners on the night . The Blues , buried an atrocious record of success , at the SCG , when they seized victory in the wet and muddy conditions .  Carlton played in their traditional, age old design , navy blue and white , jumper jersey , guernsey . Could it be e a case of stick with what works !

Adopt a Football Jumper this Easter

Footy kicks off tonight , in Brisbane , with a Game between the winless Saints ,  and Lions . Three teams are resting , with the rest of the fixture promising a blockbuster round of entertainment for fans , culminating in Anzac Day's battle , Bombers Vs Magpies. A 2008 Grand Final replay , between the Hawks and Cats , is set for the final match of the round .

An AFL football jumper , jersey , guernsey , wrapped around an Easter  Egg , is a novel gift idea for the  holidays. Too much of a good thing , aka known as chocolate , can only fast track you to the dentist . A jumper is practical , stylish , will become much loved , and marks the occasion with significance , and fond memory .   Do something different this Easter and buy a football jumper !

Too Much Publicity

Monday, March 7th, 2011

I glanced at the AGE Newspaper this morning , and read the headline " Nixon Flies In " . My first thought was , do they mean Richard Nixon ,  impeached , US President , or Christine Nixon , former Victorian Police Commisioner ? No , in football crazed Melbourne it referred to Ricky Nixon , AFL football player manager .

An appearance on commercial TV , by the person at the centre of the saga ,  concerning afl football players and managers behaviour , has kept a non newsworthy story alive .

Many supporters , women , men , young people and families are bored with it

Can we just get back to playing , and reporting on playing,  AFL Football?
