AFL Weekend results were a mixed bag , with games providing fiercely contested battles , and  some surprise results .

Saints outclassed

Saints outclassed

The Crows were very good against Geelong in Adelaide , with the Cats scraping a narrow win by only 11 points . The Swans  in a shock 43 point loss to the  under-performing Tigers have placed their finals chances in jeopardy . This loss allows Fremantle and North Melbourne to keep their finals dream alive .

Carlton , Hawthorn , Collingwood , Geelong and the West Coast Eagles continue to win , broadening the gap  between the top five , and the next three contenders , for places in the eight .  The Lions won the  battle of the Queenslanders , and the Bombers ended the Bulldogs hopes of playing in the Finals  . St Kilda , couldn’t make it seven wins in a row , and were simply outclassed by the silky skills of the Magpies .

The Richmond Tigers, wore jumpers with a local indigenous artists painting , replacing the yellow of their traditional sash strip . It was  a bold move that paid off  as this new style jumper , jersey , guernsey ,  proved a match winner for them in their game against the Bombers .

Geelong, managed a two point win over a fast finishing Carlton Blues side , in a fitting tribute to  Club Legend , Bob Davis , who passed away , earlier in the week .

An AFL football jumper , jersey , guernsey , wrapped around an Easter  Egg , is a novel gift idea for the  holidays. Too much of a good thing , aka known as chocolate , can only fast track you to the dentist . A jumper is practical , stylish , will become much loved , and marks the occasion with significance , and fond memory .   Do something different this Easter and buy a football jumper !

For the love of a Football Jumper

Friday, April 15th, 2011

Everyone who owns an AFL Football Jumper , generally enjoys a love / hate relationship with it .

Your team wins , you are proud to be seen in it . It is waved in the air like an out of control hills hoist , or worn proudly to weddings , parties , anything . Flashback to the aftermath of the 2010 Grand Final

when Melbourne Town , was under a  black and white haze for weeks .

If your team loses do you slink from the ground , hiding your jumper away ,  feeling depressed , all the while wishing you can remove it , unseen from prying eyes ? Does it languish in the bottom of your cupboard being silently punished for being the wrong colour , waiting to be given a second chance ?

Most fans will always love their jumper . Why blame it , if their team can’t find the goals , are playing like a bunch of old women , or just allow themselves to be crushed by a stronger opponent . Footy jumpers know loyal fans will ” Stand by You ” and that ” Its only a game ”  . You can pick your  footy team but you can’t pick on your footy jumper . Adoption rates are high for pre-loved football jumpers.

A team not wanting to adopt a new footy jumper,  are the North Melbourne Kangaroos . They will wear their traditional striped home jumper , in the game against Collingwood Magpies, at the weekend .  As the home team, this is their  choice  , and they are opposing the Magpies , who refuse to adopt a clash strip . Confusion for all , or a clever marketing ploy ? Traditional jumpers , to be worn in a match , to be held at the traditional Saturday afternoon footy game time of 2.10pm.
