Lets do Footy

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

Three weeks into the AFL Footy Season 2014 and the action both on , and off the field is aplenty . Malthouse is failing at Carlton , but is it the quality of his players list letting him down , or his outmoded training methods ? The Saints have announced a long overdue return to their much loved , spiritual home of the Junction Oval , St Kilda , for training and recreational purposes . Richmond Tigers , are already making disgruntled noises in the face of last weeks loss , to the Western Bulldogs , by the narrowest of margins . The Coach , Damien Hardwick , is in the unenviable position of quelling the complaints from unruly fans ,  players , and committee of Tigerland .

Will the Hawks continue to be unstoppable and unquenchable in their Premiership Race

. The Interstate teams are becoming a force to be reckoned with .

Is the shortage of skin space for inking more tattoos  @ Magpies HQ reflecting on their loss of form ? Melbourne continue doggedly on under the tutelage of Paul Roos . All at the MFC are finding it tough going . Many teams are undergoing rebuilding and rejuvenation , fairy tales cna still happen and fans will stick loyal to their clubs no matter what . Their love of their sport and their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys , is the stuff of legends .

Game Times

Friday, May 10th, 2013

The AFL are scheduling Monday Night Footy again for season 2013 . Saints play the Blues tonight at 7.40pm in Etihad Stadium . The experiment proved popular last year and has left fans hankering for more night games . Happy to please the AFL have pitted the Cats against the Bombers in a traditional Friday night blockbuster at Etihad .

 

 

Lions Jumper

Interestingly there is only one game on this weekend at the traditional Saturday afternoon time slot when the Lions play the Eagles at the Gabba . All other games , including interstate games are at various timeslots including twilight ,  night or early afternoon . Is it a bold marketing initiative by the AFL   ? Or is it simply a clever merchandising ploy to get  people to as many games as possible ?  It could just be to meet the media requirements of televising , recording and broadcasting all games . Possibly there are  a myriad of reasons but fans are the winners and they love getting to the footy wearing their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys , and cheering their team to victory .

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 .

Melbourne and Greater Western Sydney were thrashed , and both teams possibly need assistance to become more competitive . The Richmond juggernaut continues with three wins in a row , and jubilant fans are hoping their beloved team can avoid the dreaded ninth spot , at the end of the season .

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 .

Friday Night AFL Footy

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

I was at the MCGAFL footy Game , on Friday night  . The fun started on the train ride in . The Sandy line train was late , so upon arrival at Elsternwick station it quickly filled up , with Tigers and Saints fans . Much banter and good humoured ribbing ensued throughout the journey . At the ground the friendly rivalry continued . The spectacle , excitement and atmosphere around the ground was feverish .

All fans , many wearing their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys ,wanted to enjoy themselves and have a good time supporting their team . It was the night of the Tiger . They defeated the slower Saints team and deserved the cheers of their loyal fans . The crowded train ride home continued in the light heated jocular vein of the earlier ride .  Fans of both teams traded stories about which teams they loved to hate , and nights spent in the social club after the match , often joined by players .

Richmond and St Kilda fans have experienced highs and lows , whilst continuing to love their teams .   It was a night of good old fashioned footy fun , where  fans were not behaving badly .  Racial slurs , drug scandals and cries of rapist were absent . Now if only the Saints can have a win !

Round 13 , Lucky for some ? The relieved Bulldogs,  finally had a win by beating the luckless Crows , and the Hawks thrashed the Sun Lovers from the North , the GCSFC, in arctic conditions in Tasmania . In cold old Melbourne Town, the Blues beat the Sydneysiders , and the Melbourne FC , annihilated the Dockers , on a wintery day at the MCG .

NMFC continued its winning run , of four in a row , beating a deflated Bombers side . The Cats beat the Saints , who were wearing , predominantly  all black , football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys. The Lions were beaten by the Tigers , and West Coast beat the Power  . Collingwood , had the bye and celebrated by sending some players to Arizona , bemoaning Daisy's suspension , and holding a garage sale of superseded gear , of  the back of a truck !

AFL Football Jumpers , of all colours were worn over the weekend , some traditional , some not . Its past the half way mark of the Season , and the top 4 seem set . These are all  Victorian teams , with proud history's of winning flags , and all boast  strong claims to this years flag . The next three teams outside this group , are interstate teams .

Fans are watching , and are enjoying their footy   , whilst wearing their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys .
