There were no AFL football jumpers, jerseys, guernseys, in sight. The partners of AFL footballers have limited opportunity to participate in AFL functions so this very social night. It is a good opportunity for them to meet and greet and show off their frocks. A novel idea could be for them to dress in an amalgamation of discarded football jumpers, jerseys, guernseysRebecca Judd, Tanya Buckley and Nadia Bartel were among many who dressed up and commentated at the glittering event.

The Geelong Cats thrashed the Fremantle Dockers who appeared to have little incentive to play a good game as they are out of the Finals race. StKilda on the other hand played strong footy to almost defeat the 2018 Flag contenders the Hawks.

21 Reasons to go to the Footy this Weekend

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018

It is Round 21 of the AFL Home and Away Season . As the end of the season draws closer many teams are competing to play in the 2018 AFL Final Series.

 

Richmond, the 2017 Premiers are firmly on top of the AFL Ladder , one game ahead of nearest rival,  the West Coast Eagles. Below the Eagles are six teams all with the same win and loss ratio. Two teams are just outside the top eight, trailing those above by just one game. At the other end of the ladder three teams share the bottom four spots with four wins. Carlton is on the bottom of the ladder with just two wins.

The top eight teams are closely matched with four Victorian clubs represented, and four interstate sides . This poses the question will it be a local derby for the 2018 Grand Final?  Or as in 2017 and 2016, will the Victorians play an interstate side to seize victory ? Time will tell as the 2018 AFL Football Season progresses.

Sadly, two young footballers will not play out the remaining 2018 AFL Football Fixture, following an horrific injury to a Fremantle Dockers player who was felled at the weekend by an opposing West Coast Eagles player. The former has season ending injuries, the latter has been suspended for the rest of the season.

AFL Football is played with passion,  this is also borne out by the fierce loyalty displayed by fans when supporting their club. Displaying the colours by the wearing of Football jumpers, guernseys, jerseys is a big part of this passion.

In 2017 the North Melbourne Kangaroos played the Western Bulldogs on the first Good Friday match up. The North Melbourne Kangaroos had long advocated for a match on this day and were duly rewarded by the AFL by being the first team selected to play .
