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 Â Swans . In QueenslandÂ , 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 . Â Could the 2014 season be one where the interstaters steal the flag ?
Friday night footy should be riveting between the Bombers and Kangaroos , Â in the wake of Tania Hird’s spurious claims on the ABC , concerning her husband’s involvement in the the illegal supplements saga.
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 DemetriouÂ 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 .
