What’s been glossed over a bit is we’ve now built a buffer with a home showdown to go.

We used to embarrassingly trail these ******s for many years and now we are in front after a few years of domination.

Suck **** Ken

Suck **** Kochie

Suck **** Kane

Suck **** Rucci

And Suck **** to the Port flogs who suck ****

I remember back in 2003 when Port got out to a 10-4 lead in the Showdown head-to-head record and thinking, we'll probably never get in front again. In sport it's so difficult to string together consistent wins, particularly in a comp with equalisation measures.

Incredibly, by 2008 we had squared the ledger, but never once hit the front until 2017 - the first time we had our noses in front since the year 2000.

Time to put Port through a similarly long period of dominance.

Funny thing was last nite mirrored the very first

One team with terminal injuries, 7 goals down in the last and the comeback came. Only to be squashed.

I remember an old article from Rucci from about 15 years ago where he was talking up Port's showdown record and saying that Port were "our daddy".

Since then it's been 19-10 in our favour.

Who's your daddy now Rucci?

What is funny is how they banged on it for years then as we caught up they got a little quiet, Now that we are ahead the pear board have a thread on the rivalry being dead, LOL "we are losing but it doesn't matter any more", next they'll take their bat and ball and go home.

It matters to Ken, also to their chances of making finals

Another reason to be mad at Richard Douglas- but for his moment of madness last year we'd have opened a lead in the ledger that would allow us to ride out even a year or two of their being better than us.
Still makes my blood boil that a supposedly experienced player had no idea what was around him in that particular scenario.

Bar that incident it would be 8:0 in a row now. And earlier that Monfries right angle goal.

A poster on the Pear board noted the passion shown by Tex/Sloane/Lynch in their goal celebrations (could add Murphy to that list :) ) and that it would be nice to see a similar attitude from their players.

You can guarantee if Boak kicked one he would've carried on like he won the flag (regardless of being 7 goals down or not).

Does the count include the 2005 Showdown Final?

Should count for 2 being a final, although the Showdowns are their grand final.....

Just need to see Kennys reaction last year when they won, coaches don't carry on like that when they win a real grand final.
