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.

Indigenous Round of the AFL fixture ignited passion  , and precipitated changes , to the traditional football jumper , jersey , guernsey .

The first game of the fixture saw Collingwood being soundly beaten by the Swans , on  friday night footy at the MCG   .  Twenty  years ago , at the Saints vs Pies game at Victoria Park ,  Collingwood fans  racially abused Saint Nicky Winmar , who , in retaliation  raised his footy jumper , and pointed to the colour of his skin . In a startling scene of Deja Vu , a similar incident occurred at the  Pies Vs Swans match.  Swans player , Adam Goodes , pointed out a young Collingwood fan who racially vilified him . She was ejected from the ground in the dying moments of the last quarter .  In an eventful week , Collingwood FC President  , Eddie McGuire also made a racially inappropriate  comment on Melbourne Radio    .

 

 

 

In a growing  trend , three clubs changed their traditional footy jumpers , for the indigenous round . The Crows adopted a black strip to replace their original dark blue , along with their usual red and yellow, to imitate the Koori flag . Fremantle Dockers used their original colours of purple and white to create an effective allover design  of aboriginal artwork , in which boomerangs featured heavily . Richmond Tigers building on their indigenous artwork designs of previous years , incorporated a Dreamtime theme of Boomerangs , into their traditional yellow sash on a black background .

Weekend Games

Monday, May 17th, 2010

The pressure to succeed and the unpredictability of the modern AFL game was never more evident than in last weekends round of matches .

The Cats thrashed the Lions at the Gabba', Western Bulldogs beat in form team Sydney and the Saints suffered their third loss in a row to a speedy , youthful Bombers side .

The Richmond Tigers looked poised to breakthrough with their first win of the 2010 season only to have it snatched away by their Hawthorn opponents in the dying moments of the game.

A  youthful Melbourne Demons team were no match for a rejuvenated West Coast Eagles who beat them soundly at the MCG.

Interstate results saw Carlton hold off Port Power at AAMI stadium and the Collingwood Magpies beat vastly improved Fremantle Dockers at Subiaco.

Many fans, tipsters and media commentators would have expected different results to those posted in this round of matches .

Fans were out everywhere in their jumpers , jerseys , guernseys to cheer their team on and to will them to succeed.

Colours of Jumpers

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

All jumpers, jerseys , guerneys are distinctive colours . Whenever you think of a football club you always think of those colours.

St Kilda evokes red, white and black , Swans red and white and Collingwood black and white .Hawthorn brown and gold , and Carlton Navy Blue and white etc . So it goes.

These colours are reminscent of the club and its colours as worn in their teams jerseys , jumpers , guernseys.

New clubs to the afl have a limited choice of colours as most combinations are already taken by the victorian clubs.

Fremantle has had much success this year and their distinctive white with a purple anchor are unforgettable .They have forged a brand with a unique colour combination.
