Saturday, September 25th, 2010

Its finally arrived , the AFL Grand Final .

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

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.

The Crows are flying high after treating their home town fans to a great game of footy at AAMI Stadium on Friday night. The Crows were out to revenge their loss to Collingwood last September on the same ground that starved them of Finals success. It was the Crows who scored the points when they ultimately outplayed the Magpies in a closely contested tussle that saw the victors win by only four points.

Michael Voss the new coach of the Brisbane Lions achieved success on his coaching debut when his team held on to beat the West Coast Eagles at the Gabba. The Lions defeated the Eagles by nine points   despite not kicking a goal in  the last quarter.  The Lions have not lost a season-opening match at the Gabba since 1998. Voss was happy to keep this record intact.

Power played an aggressive  hard tackling brand of football to run out comfortable winners over the young  Essendon Football Club. Playing at home in 31 degree heat the Power treated fans to an enthralling display. Essendon still undergoing major rebuilding of their team played a largely young side whose inexperience and skill level were to let them down on the night .Port ultimately won the game by 41 points providing all associated with the Power a boost in their times of financial difficulty.

The Bulldogs convincingly beat the Dockers in Subiaco at the weekend  by 63 points. The Doggies kicked their seaon off to a great start with a resounding win over the hapless Dockers who look set to endure another year of under achieving and unsatisfactory results.
