The first game of the fixture saw Collingwood being soundly beaten by the Swans , on  friday night footy at the MCG   .  Twenty  years ago , at the Saints vs Pies game at Victoria Park ,  Collingwood fans  racially abused Saint Nicky Winmar , who , in retaliation  raised his footy jumper , and pointed to the colour of his skin . In a startling scene of Deja Vu , a similar incident occurred at the  Pies Vs Swans match.  Swans player , Adam Goodes , pointed out a young Collingwood fan who racially vilified him . She was ejected from the ground in the dying moments of the last quarter .  In an eventful week , Collingwood FC President  , Eddie McGuire also made a racially inappropriate  comment on Melbourne Radio    .

 

 

 

In a growing  trend , three clubs changed their traditional footy jumpers , for the indigenous round . The Crows adopted a black strip to replace their original dark blue , along with their usual red and yellow, to imitate the Koori flag . Fremantle Dockers used their original colours of purple and white to create an effective allover design  of aboriginal artwork , in which boomerangs featured heavily . Richmond Tigers building on their indigenous artwork designs of previous years , incorporated a Dreamtime theme of Boomerangs , into their traditional yellow sash on a black background .
