When were they founded?

And with the yellow I couldn't care less wtf they wear when we aren't playing them.
You don't care about the jumper, no problem.

But give this a read and you might begin to understand why Collingwood are very protective of their brand identity.

You mean the brand that port had, first? Hence me asking when Claremont was founded. Ports identity matters too and the only reason its at this state was because Collingwood strong armed them when they entered the comp at a low point financially in their history.

Cool the Guernsey and brand are important to Collingwood. Doesn't discount the importance to Port nor should it stop them from wearing it in showdown games.

The Port Power was a totally new club founded in 1997 that signed an agreement with Collingwood stating that they'd never play in the old Port Adelaide black and white colours before they entered.

Collingwood were in the AFL first and the colours are theirs and part of their national identity. Collingwood will never agree to Port wearing their colours and they never should. Black and white stripes are the second most valuable asset Collingwood has, and another club using it would dilute that identity.

Port should honour their contracts and STFU.

Rubbish. The Port Power was a totally new club founded in 1997 that signed an agreement with Collingwood stating that they'd never play in the old Port Adelaide black and white colours before they entered.
They didn't have a choice. It was join or collapse. Most clubs have gone through periods of near collapse. Most don't have their history ripped from them when they do. Utter nonsense. It also wouldn't dilute their brand either, drinking the kool aid Eddie has been spraying for years there. If it's kept to the showdown there's no problem. It's a heritage jumper. They're not disrespecting Collingwood twice a season they're celebrating their (longer) history. Just because a few insecure ass holes at Collingwood have used the media to drum this story for years doesn't make it right...

How could they collapse if they didn't exist before 1997?

WC missing a few stars, but should win easily against the Hawks, even away from home
Gunston a late out for Hawthorn too..
Seriously you have to question the psyche of the Eagles players if they cannot win today. Haven't won in Melbourne in a fair while.
