    Is Bigfooty overlooked in the major AFL media?

    It's always confused me considering the amount of attention to detail platforms like Twitter are given in the AFL media for frequent reference and quotes. Obviously with so many different social media platforms out in the world nowadays it's difficult to have an even distribution of attention...

    Opinion Honest thoughts on the current AFL jumper design?

    We have been wearing the same V design jumper since the 2010 season, and over a decade into utilizing the same design the club seems pretty happy committing to it bar minor colouring changes to the clash strip variant (Since 2019) I wanted to get your honest thoughts on the current design, and...

    Rank the following Midfield Duos

    I've selected 3 of what I believe are some of the best midfield COMBINATIONS in THIS season so far. Not just the best individual midfielder all around. I'm a bit hard on Brisbane and Richmond's crop but with their current midfield injuries, I am happy with the 3 options proposed. Rank!

    Analysis On the road

    Not as bad as the Eagles' road record just yet, but footy classified showed our record on the road against top 8 teams since 2017 has been 6wins 13losses. This year, in particular, we didn't travel well going to Perth or Brisbane, admittedly it's better not to waste our best football prematurely...

    Post - loss clarity. Do some of us get TOO emotional?

    Extremely specific and awkward subject here, but I have been thinking about it, allow me to elaborate on the purpose of the subject. Have you ever witnessed your team lose a game which in turn has caused you to be fueled with aggressive and negative emotions which make you contemplate your...

    Opinion Seriously, who actually unironically likes Damian Barrett?

    I forget this guy has been around in sports journalism for nearly 30 years now. Of course, since 2018 he has been the chief correspondent of the AFL media, and seems to get a decent abundance of praise for his position, as evidenced by this (Extremely suspicious) survey poll...

    Analysis The PAFC And Richmond Rivalry

    After attending the game last night, I was electrified by how awesome we as supporters made the atmosphere feel! but on top of that, I also recognised the way the context of the game's build-up had created anticipation around the result. It then got me thinking about how significant the context...

    Opinion Most HATED Opposition Club? (Besides West Lakes)

    I saw another club forum talking about a topic along similar lines, but it got me thinking if we took our cross-town rivals out of the question, who would be our biggest rival and most hated opponent? I have thought about the most likely candidates and limited a poll to select options, but I...

    Review PAFC 2020 Season Review

    Well I apologise if this thread is coming out the oven a little bit too early, and I understand we will all still be feeling the sting quite a bit, but I don't post here often anymore so I simply wanted to give my summary of this season for the football club. I have to start by saying I'm...

    Are the Bombers and the Power in the same position right now?

    The outside Port thread has fallen into the depths of the thread ocean, but from some of the answers I remember it seems like Port Adelaide's current problems are shared with that of Essendon, some of these problems may include: More B grade players than A grade players in the list A grade...

    Analysis The statistical evolution of the last 5 years.

    This thread may stretch to all types of stats such as individual players and game by game comparisons, but to kick things off I'm just going to start with team ranking stats, which simply compares the chosen statistic with each team and ranks them from 1st to 18th. Almost every comparison here...

    Coach The fall of the assistants. Who will make it out and who won't?

    This morning, the official website of the AFL released this article in regards to the problems that we might confront over the number of assistant coaches that teams can have at their disposal: https://www.afl.com.au/news/390184/covid-fallout-gameday-coach-box-set-for-massive-cull This got me...

    Opinion Wines vs Rocky vs Drew, Who gets the third square spot?

    Boak and Housten are fantastic and by far our best midfielders so only injury will put them out of the 22. Robbie and SPP are seen to be better used as forward utility and as contributions to scoring involvements, so they won't be doing full-time work in the middle. Some of the draftees will...

    Opinion Tom Jonas will be a good captain

    So now that we only have one sole captain, things will automatically be better, whether by a small amount or a good amount we'll have to wait and see. But even so people are still (and fairly) unsatisfied to see TJ remain the captain after an average at best season last year, but how bad is it...

    Opinion The External Opinions On Port Adelaide

    As a Port Adelaide supporter myself, I have spent the season of 2019 through the googles of the internal perspective on our club. The short story is that it's not good. The supporter base is outraged with the lack of consequence for the club's poor results in recent years, and it doesn't help...

    List Mgmt. Who Won/Lost the 2019 Trade period.

    All said in the title, perhaps not the huge trade period that everybody was expecting, but coming out of it there have still been a lot of changes, expected or not, that will result in very different looking clubs next year for the better, or the worse. With that said, I would like to hear...

    Opinion Other teams you may like to watch

    Well, it looks like we'll be watching September football from the outside yet again. Without a doubt, the current state of our club isn't very good, and we haven't been playing a very good looking brand of football of recent, but I, and maybe some of you, still love the sport of football with a...

    Opinion Best/Worst Port Adelaide players of 2019

    As we approach the end of the 2019 AFL season, I thought this would be an appropriate time to start discussing the variety of different Port Adelaide players and their performances in 2019. In spite of how the season finishes we've had some very strong names that have shined through, as well as...

    Opinion Negativity In The Port Adelaide Supporter Base

    This thread is about the negative vibe that has spawned within the Port Adelaide community over the past year or two on BigFooty. Please allow me to clarify a few things before posting your thoughts and opinions. To start off, this thread is NOT about antagonising the Port Adelaide Supporter...
