are making a comeback . Collingwood Football Club have released a range of retro football guernseys , sporting the old blue and white VFL logo patch , and peak collar . Whilst they are not a departure from their traditional black and white iconic strip , the retro jumper , was touted as a possible mothers day gift . CFC keen to make a buck have appealed to fans to purchase one for Mum . Apparently these were the jumpers the Mums saw on the footy fields , before they became Mums !

Both teams are desperate for a win , being in 13th and 15th spot respectively , on the ladder and could be described as evenly matched .

Its Footy Time

Friday, March 21st, 2014

The home and away AFL 2014 Football Season has commenced . Flag contenders Fremantle thrashed Collingwood , in the first game of the year . In the Harbour City , Greater Western Sydney beat their fellow Sydneysiders , the  Swans . In Queensland , the Suns beat the Tigers . Last Sunday night in Melbourne , Port Adelaide defeated Carlton . Thursday night footy saw Geelong hold off Adelaide to be victorious .  Could the 2014 season be one where the interstaters steal the flag ?

Controversy is already rife in the AFL with the Hird saga being reprised , Buddy Franklin being cited as an overpaid bad boy of the Swans , and the cancellation of the cost of living allowance to Swans players . Are the Hirds bigger than the Game ? can the Crows afford Dangerfield , will the Saints win any games , and why doesn't North want rival teams to play their theme song before battle . Can Demetriou segue into comfortable retirement at the end of 2014 ? Will the invaders steal the ultimate prize of AFL Premiers , and can Richmond force an end to Jake Kings friendship with bikie gangster , Toby Mitchell .

 

AFL footy has got off to a ripping start , Season 2014 promises much , and fans are along for a bumpy ride wearing their new , old , preloved , vintage ,and retro football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys .
