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.

AFL team the Adelaide Crows are regrouping and rebuilding after their morale destroying loss against the strong Richmond Tigers in the 2017 AFL Grand Final.

Rumour and speculation in the media indicates that Jake Lever wishes to return to Melbourne and Charlie Cameron to Brisbane. It is usual for changes to occur within all AFL clubs at the end of the AFL Season. The Crows changes may be fuelled by the experience of loss, and change is particularly prevalent within a Club after a Grand Final loss.

Faithful fans, whilst disappointed by the loss will remain loyal to their club. Fans across the country will continue to wear their football jumpers, jerseys, guernseys.

It is a much feted victory, a long time in the making, as its been thirty seven years since the Tigers last Premiership. A fairytale win, akin to the Western Bulldogs 2016 great victory over the marauding Sydney Swans. A repeating tale of underdog Victorian team wins against much favoured Interstate rival.

The crows gallant in defeat will return to  Adelaide minus the holy grail, the 2017 Premiership Cup, as this year it remains firmly entrenched in the local Victorian hands.
