Saturday, December 10th, 2011

GWS , the new team to join the AFL in 2012 , will be a strong competitor in the 2012 Home and Away Season .

Although recycled coaches are currently out of fashion , the head and assistant coach of GWS , Kevin Sheedy and Mark Williams respectively , offer much . Both are experienced ex- players , are winning Premiership coaches , have been keen recruiters of new talent , and are shrewd businessmen . Combine these attributes with those of Stephen Silvangi , arguably one of the best defenders to pull on a guernsey , and they represent a formidable brains trust .

Is it a coincidence or a clever marketing ploy that the GWS Giants are wearing the orange black and white colours of their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys ? These colours are the same as those of the other team from the West of Sydney , the NRL Wests Tigers side , who already have a strong fan base in the region .

Last Round

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

The last round of Home and Away games,  for the 2010 AFL Football Season , are on this weekend .

Some teams will make a last valiant effort to gain a finals berth,  whilst others will shore up their position on the ladder.

Fans will be out , wearing their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys , to watch their team play for the last time in 2010 , or to cheer them into the Finals.

It has been a tumultuous season .

Retirement of greats , troubled Ben Cousins , indigenous role model Andrew Mc Leod, and Bomber spearhead Matthew Lloyd.

Witness many controversial decisions,  ie : the disallowing of a winning goal in the Hawks / Saints clash, and the courtroom drama of Andrew Lovett .

Supporters have experienced highs , eg :Collingwoods emergence as flag favourites , and lows, eg : Jim Stynes public battle with cancer .

Its been a great season, and the finals of 2010 promise much .

Historically, its the last year of the current AFL competition, with 16 teams playing.

In 2011, it expands to a 17 team competition, as the AFL welcomes the Gold Coast Suns , and 2012 , ushers in the Greater Western Sydney team .

Whatever happens , fans will be along for the ride, wearing their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys.
