Saturday, June 11th, 2011

Just spent some time in Tasmania, where the hot news item was whether Hobart , could attract the North Melbourne FC, to play two AFL Games at Bellerive Oval .

NMFC to Play AFL Footy in Hobart

NMFC to Play AFL Footy in Hobart

"North versus South" screamed the Mercury newspaper Headline,  in downtown Hobart . A local was heard to remark " I can't believe those people in the North .They are so parochial not wanting Hobart to have footy . '

Such is the passion that AFL Footy ignites , its not even interstate rivalry but intercity rivalry , causing squabbling between the two as to who plays where and when .

NMFC, are to play in Hobart , Hawthorn , are to continue to play in Launceston . Will the locals see a team of 22 professional Footballers , pull on the new Tasmanian Football Team Jumpers, to take their place in the expanded national AFL Competition ?

AFL Football still in the news

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

Its Summer in the Southern Hemisphere , and the Christmas/ New Year festive season is approaching .

One of the headline stories on the  front page , of the Saturday Age newspaper ,screamed  " My Year of Pain ," exclusive interview with Ross Lyon . He is the St Kilda Football Team Coach . The Saints lost to the  Collingwood Magpies in the historic replay of the 2010 Grand Final . Readers were exhorted to read further.

It would appear ,  AFL   football is never out of the  news, no matter what else is going on,  or what time of year it is , in football mad  Melbourne .

The AFL would be delighted with such high level media exposure in the non - playing season . Footy starved fans will be relishing every headline grabbing statement .

In keeping with this spirit , many afl football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys will be wished for this festive season .Young and old fans , alike would love one in their Christmas stocking .

Relive old memories , reminisce with fellow fans , and show the kids where you went to watch footy .

These , Aussie Rules Footy Games , were played at the your local suburban grounds , to smaller crowds,  with uncomplicated expectations , apart from the hope that their team would win .

Fans walked , drove , rode a bike or caught the bus , to their local ground , which provided a central community hub , for the locals , and their team .

The local footy ground , provided a site of identity , and belonging, for supporters.

The " Saturday Arvo Fever ", section of the exhibition , might display a bygone era , but fans were still keen to watch their beloved football team , whilst wearing their  football jumper , jersey , guernsey.

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.
