The changing colour of an AFL Football Jumper

Saturday, May 28th, 2011

The humble AFL Football Jumper is no more . Packaged in aerodynamic fabric , now the traditional colours have changed . Carlton, won in the baby blue again last night , and the Tigers replacement of their traditional sash , with a dreamtime painting last weekend , has made the jumpers a highly sought after item .

Blues Clash no more ?

Melbourne Demons , are yet to replicate their hot pink strip , of a few years ago, which they  wore as a Breast Cancer fundraiser , but it appears the skys the limit as to who adopts what strip when .

Collingwood , are sticking doggedly to their black and white though. Ironic really , as Nicky Winnar , great indigenous Sainter , lifted his footy jumper,  to show his black skin , in the last game the Magpies played against the Saints , at Victoria Park.

Football Jumpers in October ?

Monday, October 11th, 2010

Why not ?

We have just witnessed an historic , AFL Grand Final , in October .

The first ever , and it certainly won’t be the last, as more teams , join the competition .

A Gold Coast Suns team, starts in 2011 , and GWS begin in 2012 .

This will necessitate , in the playing season , being lengthened .

It is Spring in the Southern Hemisphere , and daylight saving has begun , in many of the Australian states , and Territories.

Spring typifies warm days , and balmy nights , with more daylight , and sunshine , to  shine on us,   mere mortals .

With this  lightening of our souls , in the face of glorious weather,  will we pack away our much loved , football jumper , jersey , guernsey ?

A resounding no .

No need . The fabric of modern football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys, is such that it breathes with you , absorbs sweat , is lightweight , highly portable ,and is aerodynamically designed , to mould to the body, like a second skin, making it supremely comfortable.

Wear your football jumper , jersey , guernsey now .

We don’t care that its October .

Let get in early for next Season , and prepare for success .

Numbers on Jumpers

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

Numbers are worn on the back of your afl jumper, jersey , guernsey.

It marks you as a member of the football team.

Traditionally numbers were sewn on .
Either hand sewn or machine sewn they were fabric and placed on the back . Mum got out the singer sewing machine and obliged . Today these numbers can still be seen on older jumpers , jerseys , guernseys.

Then they were ironed on .
This was a popular choice . Large sporting goods retailers sell them . Most people own an iron and know how to use it . Placed and ironed onto the back of the jumper , jersey ,guernsey they look good.You can dream of playing like Chris Judd of Carlton Blues in his jumper with his number on the back.

Lately they can be printed on the jumper , jersey , guernsey.
Purchase a number thirteen jumper , jersey , guernsey from the St Kilda Saints to barrack for Adam Schneider .
These numbers have the afl logo printed across the bottom of them.

Who’s got your number ?

Whatever your number , wear your jumper , jersey , guernsey to the match.

It usually says Official Licensed Product on the paper swing tag
The garment itself has a sewn in AFL licensed tag or if it is NRL it has the identication shield of the organisation
