In 2017 the North Melbourne Kangaroos played the Western Bulldogs on the first Good Friday match up. The North Melbourne Kangaroos had long advocated for a match on this day and were duly rewarded by the AFL by being the first team selected to play .

Good Friday Footy

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

The AFL has announced it is looking at the possibility of playing footy , on Good Friday . A proposal to postpone the commencement of the 2015 season is being touted  ,with a Good Friday Twilight Game , listed as Season opener . Many sports have long played matches on this sacred religious festival day .

All AFL Clubs are jostling for the right to play on Good Friday  . North Melbourne believe they are the most worthy , as they initially proposed a match on Good Friday in 1992 . A worthy opponent is believed to be Carlton , who have a huge fan base and could draw a crowd.

Essendon and Collingwood already have exclusive rights to the Anzac Day match and it would be assumed they would be out of the running even though they have expressed interest .

A further possibility is that interstate  clubs would also play home matches on Good Friday .

Will the football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys , be printed with special logo's , to commemorate the historic match , like the the Anzac Day match guernseys ?

 

Footy Legends

Monday, May 6th, 2013

I went and saw the stage show " Barassi " at the weekend .Followers of  VFL / AFL football are familiar with this name . What prompted me to go was seeing Ron Barassiwalking along the beach path at Elwood beach with a few of his pals . He had a determined stride and had raised a sweat on the cool autumn morning . The show encompassed his life achievements in football , including playing and coaching Melbourne Football Club , his  secession to Carlton , premiership victory at North Melbourne and trailblazing at the Sydney Swans . Many vintage football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys , were used in the production , well loved relics of a golden past and as tribute to a dead set footy legend .

Elsewhere Barassi 's first team the Demons were thrashed by his second the Blues . Perhaps the Dees need some Barass magic at the moment ! Saints run of losses continued , as did the Lions , Suns , Tigers , GWS , Crows and Bulldogs . Bombers and Cats rule on top of ladder with no losses followed by Power , Swans and Hawks with only one loss ,then come  Freo , Magpies and  Blues taking up remaining spots in the eight .

 

Tasmanian Football Jumpers

Saturday, June 11th, 2011

Just spent some time in Tasmania, where the hot news item was whether Hobart , could attract the North Melbourne FC, to play two AFL Games at Bellerive Oval .

NMFC to Play AFL Footy in Hobart

NMFC to Play AFL Footy in Hobart

"North versus South" screamed the Mercury newspaper Headline,  in downtown Hobart . A local was heard to remark " I can't believe those people in the North .They are so parochial not wanting Hobart to have footy . '

Such is the passion that AFL Footy ignites , its not even interstate rivalry but intercity rivalry , causing squabbling between the two as to who plays where and when .

NMFC, are to play in Hobart , Hawthorn , are to continue to play in Launceston . Will the locals see a team of 22 professional Footballers , pull on the new Tasmanian Football Team Jumpers, to take their place in the expanded national AFL Competition ?

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.
