    I just find it weird that on three occasions this year when people I have just met at work, with no idea who I am, take a guess as to who I support they have all said Geelong...is there a type of person who supports the club? Or is it just a safe bet to say Geelong when I live in Ballarat?

    Usually good looking hunky guys who mesmerize women and have magnetic personalities.

    Well I was born and bred into supporting Geelong. As are many people with other clubs. Nothing wrong with that.

    Yes ACunningPlan, I think there is a type. There is definitely a GFC player type!

    The supporter type, well those I've met through footy are (let's exclude the nuffies, every Club has them):
    • intelligent;
    • well-mannered;
    • have excellent AFL/GFC footy knowledge;
    • terrific sense of humour;
    • loyal, especially to GFC;
    • despise Hawthorn :p
    • love a drink or ten;
    • Navy with white are their fave colours;
    • Enthusiastic;
    • Love winning, yet gracious in defeat.

    Obviously, Geelong male supporters are charming, charismatic, sexy hunks! If James Bond had played AFL, it would have been for the Geelong Cats!

    + Geelong women supporters

    Women who love football.jpg

    Now the player type, especially their looks, think:
    • Joel Selwood, navy + white in his DNA;
    • Bartel *swoon* Smoking Gun! Six time winner of AFL Sexiest Player;
    • Tom Hawkins, has that sexy wet look + those blue eyes!:hearteyecat::hearteyecat::hearteyecat:
    • Jed Bews *just pass me a panty liner already!*;
    • Gary Ablett Sr *I'm still crazy mad in love with him* :hearteyecat::hearteyecat::hearteyecat::hearteyecat::hearteyecat::hearteyecat:
    • Corey Enright;
    • Max Rooke! Hard, courageous + sooooo sexy! Epitome of Geelong;
    • Then there is our archetypal 'Ranga' player - Stoneham, Neville Bruns, Robert Neal, Ricky Graham, Roy West (chestnut red), John Mossop, Ling, Bernie Smith, Bluey McGrath +++
    • Tom Harley
    • Brad Ottens

    So as a NSW person, should I change from Cats to Swans?

    I began following Cats in 1966 or 67, there was no NSW VFL team then, so I chose the Cats.

    Been a cat's member since 2002, in that time been to 3 games and none in the last 4 years.....can't begin to describe the joy my cats membership has given me and I feel proud of my contribution, albeit in a small way! A small price to pay for what I have received and to feel a part of it!

    To change would be treason, and unfathomable.

    I’m genuinely glad you can feel this way. Not everybody could.

    But I torture myself. I’ve gone to about 20 of Ports home games in the last two years & around 8 Crow games so I find it extremely disillusioning

    got my pack a couple of days ago got to say while better then last year the scarfs really aren't high quality merchandise, the ones from 5-6 years ago are far better, not sure when or why the club decided to cheap out on these types of things.

    True.
    We have a houseful of scarves and caps.
    Time for a new useful freebie.
    Those blankets were good value.

    I received mine and agree the scarf isn’t great quality.

    Maybe some socks next year?

    So I rang the membership services today asking If my membership had been sent. 'we're behind the 8 ball and I'm not sure If yours has been sent or not. Ring back next week If it hasn't arrived and we'll re-send it.' :eek:
