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 !

Some teams had a bye at the weekend , others played , and the Swans beat the Hawks in Sydney , proving the Hawks aren't unbeatable .An extended round of matches has been played out , commencing on friday and finishing on monday night when the Saints play the Blues . Both teams are desperate for a win , being in 13th and 15th spot respectively , on the ladder and could be described as evenly matched . They have shared a great rivalry over the years , and this game promises some jumper tearing action for fans .

Whilst the Saints and Blues both lost their matches , while wearing a non - traditional football guernsey , the pink initiative is a positive initiative . In previous years,  Melbourne FC , had played in pink themed football jumpers . On Sunday they will be happy to have Jack Viney , back in their team , after his contentious suspension , for rough play , was withdrawn .

Lions Jumper

 Swaps , trades , and drafts is the language bandied around the empty ovals and behind closed doors of club's admin HQ.
Older players are retired , re-housed,  re - hashed and re- branded as they swap clubs and pledge allegiance to another , all for the sake of the mighty dollar , and the welfare of the team .New draftees are selected , young kids with big dreams off playing afl football .
Football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys are changed , rebranded with new sponsors , and washed and packed away til the next season . Or are they ? The vintage styles might need a rest . Stretched , strained ,   jostled and ridiculed they  need some R& R during the off season . However ,  the modern , slick , polyester , sleeveless guernsey is good to go anytime , anywhere , anyhow ! A bit like the modern day AFL footballer .
