With the advent of televised games, and games played at various times of the day and night it was inevitable that a variation on the humble football jumper, jersey, guernsey became necessary.

Football commentators, fellow players, fans, watchers and listeners, unable to be at the game needed to be able to differentiate between the players of each club.

Most clubs have adopted an away or clash strip.  It uses their teams basic colours but also uses white, grey or expands on one of the traditional colours.

A good example of this are the Richmond Tigers football jumper, jersey, guernsey that has a greater use of yellow in their away strip than that of the traditional home guernsey. St Kilda Saints football club have employed a greater use of the colour white. Essendon Bombers football club have incorporated the  use of the colour grey into their away strip .

Saints outclassed

The Crows were very good against Geelong in Adelaide , with the Cats scraping a narrow win by only 11 points . The Swans  in a shock 43 point loss to the  under-performing Tigers have placed their finals chances in jeopardy . This loss allows Fremantle and North Melbourne to keep their finals dream alive .

Carlton , Hawthorn , Collingwood , Geelong and the West Coast Eagles continue to win , broadening the gap  between the top five , and the next three contenders , for places in the eight .  The Lions won the  battle of the Queenslanders , and the Bombers ended the Bulldogs hopes of playing in the Finals  . St Kilda , couldn't make it seven wins in a row , and were simply outclassed by the silky skills of the Magpies .
