Round 13 , Lucky for some ? The relieved Bulldogs,  finally had a win by beating the luckless Crows , and the Hawks thrashed the Sun Lovers from the North , the GCSFC, in arctic conditions in Tasmania . In cold old Melbourne Town, the Blues beat the Sydneysiders , and the Melbourne FC , annihilated the Dockers , on a wintery day at the MCG .

NMFC continued its winning run , of four in a row , beating a deflated Bombers side . The Cats beat the Saints , who were wearing , predominantly  all black , football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys. The Lions were beaten by the Tigers , and West Coast beat the Power  . Collingwood , had the bye and celebrated by sending some players to Arizona , bemoaning Daisy's suspension , and holding a garage sale of superseded gear , of  the back of a truck !

AFL Football Jumpers , of all colours were worn over the weekend , some traditional , some not . Its past the half way mark of the Season , and the top 4 seem set . These are all  Victorian teams , with proud history's of winning flags , and all boast  strong claims to this years flag . The next three teams outside this group , are interstate teams .

Fans are watching , and are enjoying their footy   , whilst wearing their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys .

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 Football Jumper is not just for Christmas

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

A Football Jumper is not just for Christmas . It can be worn anywhere , anytime , in AFL obsessed Melbourne Town .

In fact , anywhere AFL football is played , a football jumper , jersey , guernsey, is considered a must have item , in the wardrobe .

Summer , is fast approaching , as is Christmas . What better gift idea , than a new , or vintage football jumper , jersey , guernsey , tucked into the Christmas stocking .

Why I wouldn't be surprised,  if Santa , makes his rounds this year, wearing a Collingwood, football jumper , jersey , guernsey . They have so many fans , particularly after their recent success , I think Santa , may be a closet Magpies fan . Shh! don't tell the elves though , or he could have a revolt at the North Pole .

Make sure you buy the real thing . There is no comparison between an authentic , licensed with sponsors , just like the players wear, footy jumper, to a cheap imitation knock off . Recipients of the jumper , will know the difference , and to quote that old advertisement , for arnotts biscuits " there is no substitute for quality ".

Grand Final Day , 2010

Saturday, September 25th, 2010

Its finally arrived , the AFL Grand Final .

Fans,  have slept out for 3 days at the MCG, so they can get one of the coveted MCC,  members seats.

The Grand Final Parade, through Melbourne City streets,  is done and dusted . Nick Maxwell,  the Collingwood Captain , wearing sunglasses, held the Cup aloft , with Saint Captain, Nick Riewoldt  .

Record numbers of fans, wearing their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys , were there to cheer their respective teams .

Supporters, roamed the streets of Melbourne last night, wearing the red , white and black of St Kilda , or the black and white , of Collingwood.

Houses , in suburban streets, are decorated in the colours .

Melbourne Town

Some loyalties are divided . If your team isn't playing do you support the unlucky Saints? Or do you put your voice behind, the mighty Magpie army?

Its a cool day in Melbourne , just a hint of sun. Perfect conditions for the Big Game .

AFL Football, has been plaqued with lots of headlines this year , dramas both on, and off the field . Injuries , rivalries , superhuman feats , notorious personal dramas , sacking of coaches , sex scandals, its all part of modern day footy .

Putting all this to one side ,today is the day , when fans everywhere, get to watch the greatest Match of all , between those judged the two great sides, in the competition.
