Last night at Etihad Stadium , in Melbourne ,43,000 fans watched the dynamic Carlton Blues beat a lacklustre St Kilda Saints team.
In a bold marketing initiative ,the AFL has scheduled a Monday night game for the second year in a row.
It attracted an almost capacity crowd .
Fans were out in their jumpers , jerseys, guernseys.
Could this be the start of more Monday night Games ?
Two new AFL teams , Greater West Sydney and Gold Coast , are scheduled to join the competition in 2011.
The AFL has to find new ways to extend the fixture . A match played on a Monday night might be a viable option.
