are making a comeback . Collingwood Football Club have released a range of retro football guernseys , sporting the old blue and white VFL logo patch , and peak collar . Whilst they are not a departure from their traditional black and white iconic strip , the retro jumper , was touted as a possible mothers day gift . CFC keen to make a buck have appealed to fans to purchase one for Mum . Apparently these were the jumpers the Mums saw on the footy fields , before they became Mums !

Melbourne FC played the Western Bulldogs on Sunday in their traditional navy blue football guernsey , but the red yoke and trims , were replaced with bright pink and printed with lighter pink figures of women, to raise awareness of breast cancer .

Surely a better choice would,ve been for the Eagles to wear white or yellow guernseys , under lights , at night ? Several Demons players hand - balled to the opposition on a least two occasions in the second quarter . It didn't affect the result of the game , but the AFL need to adopt a pragmatic approach to the wearing of home and away strips  , of teams football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys.

Hawks Footy Jumper

NMFC ground out a thrilling win against another top side , the Cats , on friday night footy at Etihad . Its Round 19 and anything goes as both wins proved that the top teams are not undefeatable . GWS finally broke through to clinch their first victory of the season,  by thrashing down and out  Melbourne . Sydney , Collingwood , and Freo keep winning , but Carlton poised in ninth spot put up a lacklustre performance . StKilda continue to disappoint , whilst Port  impress. The Lions and Eagles persist , and the Doggies keep trying , whilst Essendon's form is inconsistent , a reflection of their club's turmoil as they continue to refute drug taking allegations .
