Weddings and Holidays

Monday, January 4th, 2016

Summer is the off season for the AFL. Many players are taking advantage of the long summer break to get married.  Gary Ablett Jnr and Patrick Dangerfield both wed on 1 January 2016, celebrating New Years Day nuptials. Liam Picken wed on New Years Eve, 2015. When the AFL Season ends players often enjoy an extended overseas holiday, or take the opportunity to play in the  International Rules Series in Ireland.

It is a time of retirements, re-signings and trades, rejuvenated training schedules, and team development. AFL Footy players usually enjoy some private time away from  public  scrutiny and media exposure.

Fans may turn their attention to cricket . Football Jumpers, jerseys, guernseys are rarely retired though. The sleeveless version can and will be worn throughout summer. New sponsors are signed but the team colours don't change, except in the recent case of Essendon Bombers who dropped the grey from their clash football guernsey, jersey, jumper.

Vintage jumpers remain a constant and are feted by loyal fans all year long. Historically interesting they remain a regular feature to the proud owners collection.

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 .

Round three provided great entertainment for fans all watching their teams , while wearing their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys . Swans , Eagles , Saints , Hawks , Bombers , Eagles , Lions , Cats , Tigers and Power won . The Crows , Blues , Dockers and Suns all lost by small margins . The SA teams and Qld teams provided close matchups playing each other at home in their respective states .

The huge Anzac Day match is coming up between old combatants Collingwood and Essendon , both teams hoping to thrill fans with a close contest and ultimate  victory .Besieged coach of the Bombers , James Hird has been the subject of much scrutiny in recent days as has Nathan Buckley's comments surrounding the Collingwood football team .

The Richmond Tigers, wore jumpers with a local indigenous artists painting , replacing the yellow of their traditional sash strip . It was  a bold move that paid off  as this new style jumper , jersey , guernsey ,  proved a match winner for them in their game against the Bombers .

Geelong, managed a two point win over a fast finishing Carlton Blues side , in a fitting tribute to  Club Legend , Bob Davis , who passed away , earlier in the week .
