Yesterday I went to a season ending AFL match . It was at the traditional saturday afternoon time . The sun was shining , a green grass smell pervaded our nostrils , and we were surrounded by faithful fans. Growing up in a country town you barracked for the country VFL team . A move to the city saw support for the VFL team of your new home suburb . My friend , who grew up in the shadow of our mutual team's  Footy Oval , said " you all barracked for them , there was just no one else ". She has been a  lifetime supporter of our  club , I have followed them for a mere 40 years . During this time  we have seen our team survive a troubled past , and achieve a spectacular lack of on field success . Not for us the dazzling highs and lows of Finals and Grand Finals . Our time came and went a few years back , as ultimate success was cruelly snatched from our grasp , by a long time foe .

A lot of enjoyment has been wrung from those years . My four children , and her two have been initiated , and like us , will be lifetime supporters . Footy has been fun , its bonded us , ignited passions and provided endless fodder for conversation . Sure the new AFL is slick , swanky , scandal ridden , and irritating .Yesterday our team waved goodbye to three players , whilst ending the season with a win .

Champagne was shared , reminiscences laughed over , and camaraderie spilled out amongst the faithful crowd. No spectre of drug scandal , racial vilification , players trading allegiances , or abuse was raised . It was a fun day out at the footy . The sweet seal on the deal came when the 16 year old pointed out , on our departure from the ground , mine , her dads , and her name , on the club loyalty poster near the front gate . We exited the ground wearing our footy jumpers , jerseys , guernseys , to the resounding chorus of our club song ringing in our ears . The phrase " there's always next year " escaping our lips .

Many highlights and great entertainment was provided over the extended round of matches for the Easter / Anzac Day holiday break . A milestone was reached by the Suns , when they won their first AFL Game . Collingwood proved too strong for Essendon , and Geelong looked good against the Hawks .

The Saints posted their first win for season 2011 , as did the Tigers ,who proved more accurate in front of goals than the Kangaroos , with young spearhead , Jack Riewoldt booting five goals . The Bulldogs were unlucky in WA and lost only in the dying minutes of the game to the Dockers .

Fans enjoying the mighty spectacle of a holiday fixture of AFL Football , watched games wearing their beloved football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys .

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.
