No announcements have been made about the jumpers, jerseys, guernseys the participating teams will play in. Will they replicate the original home and away jumpers, jerseys, guernseys worn by the 18 clubs in the AFL? Or will they play in new different jumpers, jerseys, guernseys?

Footy Jumpers get a name

Friday, January 31st, 2014

AFL Footy jumpers are set to have players names on the back .

The AFL has had a 100 year tradition of leaving the players guernseys nameless . 2014 sees them break this tradition , and is trialling the naming process this year.

Begs the question is it for identification purposes of trial by video ? Will it will identify on field players from each other . Fans will clearly know who they are supporting or heckling , and umpires will know who to penalise !

Where will the name go ? Above the number ? Or under the sponsor ?

Historically , many sporting codes have printed the players names on the back . The British EPL , and European Football Clubs , have done so for many years .

Does this mean the humble AFL football jumper , jersey , guernsey , is finally coming of age ?

The beleaguered Bombers , dogged by a drugs scandal , beat WCE in WA , hoping to silence critics and appease fans . Sydney beat Carlton at home in the teeming rain , and Port Power beat the Pies . The Saints got thrashed by the Tigers , and Melbourne squeeze out a 3 point victory over the Dogs . Hawks , Crows and Cats continue to win , and Kangas annihilate newcomers GWS.

Great legend of AFL Footy , Richmond Tiger , Tommy Hafey was spotted at St Kilda Beach preparing for an  early morning swim , last Sunday . His jovial reply , when queried on who would win between the Saints and Tiges , was " Saints are pretty good " An ironic response from the affable Richmond stalwart !

Footy Jumper’s Coming Out

It's time. And no , I'm not resurrecting the famous ALP political jingle . Those two simple words ignite jubiliation in the hearts of footy fans , and strike dread into those who are not .

Footy's Back . Its been a glorious summer hiatus but with autumn fast approaching , and winter beckoning , AFL Football is back on the agenda.

Whether your jumper of choice is the upmarket , slinky polyester newbie guernsey , or the old faithful , vintage woollen footy jumper , its time for its coming out .

Packed lovingly away in drawers , tucked in the back of the closet , or arrayed in pride of place on the wall , let it out to play .

The NAB Cup is done and dusted , for the many footy fans and purists who regard this as an inferior precursor to the real nail biting action of the AFL Football Fixture .

Could’ve , Should’ve and Would’ve

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

Last weekend's Round 14 of AFL Matches proved a season series defining  moment for many clubs . Many loyal fans have to face the uncomfortable truth that their beloved team , just won't make the 2012 Finals .

Others , particularly those who follow one of the  six teams , jostling for that coveted eighth spot , keep hoping . Many watched a disorganised St Kilda team , relinquish the tightly held eighth spot,  to a determined NMFC . Speculation again abounds about hiring and firings in the senior coaching positions , of several underperforming AFL Clubs .

Fans endure much for the love of their team . Miserable weather , hopeless public transport  , overcharging by the AFL , posturing by the League leaders , and the  shrinking of their beloved football jumper , jersey , guernsey after a season of pie and beer. Sledging by rival fans is usually accepted  good naturedly , and adds to the jocularity and  enjoyment of the match .

A blockbuster is planned on Friday night at the  " G " , between league heavyweights Carlton and Collingwood . Its footy,  anyone can win .
