The club can't afford to win a financial battle with Collingwood if it came to that even though it is in the right. This is why it has to be fan driven. No teal at all at games going forward. Make the way that the club has been treated on this an embarrassment to the AFL until it can no longer be ignored. One lady refused to sit at the back of the bus 60 odd years ago and started a movement. You can too. No more SA being treated as 2nd rate to Vic.Eddie came across as more than desperate in that clip, and his argument if you can call it that did not hold an ounce of water.
He knows he hasn't a leg to stand on. I was confused at the end of his rant actually. He made it sound as if we want to become the Magpies again. We don't want our club to be the magpies in the AFL. We just want to wear our traditional jumper, and we've made it clear we can wear a clash when playing Collingwood. It really is clear.
The problem with any court battle is that often times it doesn't come down to the law so much as who has the bigger coffers to go the distance in the courts. Our financial situation compared to Collingwood is minuscule at best. And I dont think that this board as it stands would be willing to put so much money into a legal battle that it could conceivably lose, which could potentially cripple the club financially; especially not after what as happened the past few months economically sue to the virus.
Getting to a stage where we can wear it at least once a year is a huge step. It gets the foot permanently in the door. Dare I say if Koch pulls this off it would be quite a statement full of substance considering the majority of his tenure has been all huff no puff.
If Glenelg entered the AFL in 2021, do you think Richmond would be fine with them keeping their current jumper for all home games?Their real strip is the mostly white one with the black number, which is so unlike the prison bar jumper that if Port had a black back and white number, they could just about wear them against each other.
You should ask Manchester United or Liverpool how they cope being two of the biggest football clubs, in the largest most popular football league in the world and having the same colours.
The Prison bar jumper is a vastly different design to Collingwood. Also yes I would expect Richmond to be fine with Glenelg being yellow and black so long as the average person could tell them apart.
We are not asking to wear the Prison Bars against Collingwood. We want to wear it vs other clubs, we are more than happy to wear a clash jumper vs Collingwood.It's never going to happen. The AFL will permit it for designated special occasions. It will never be worn in an official AFL game where Collingwood is the opponent.
Our PB guernsey is a totally different design to Collingwood’s stripes. We want to wear our guernsey not collingwood’s. Personally, I think Collingwood are not so protective of the black and white itself - they just know there is a much better B&W design out there that they would prefer stays hidden.
The irony is they stole it from SA When they couldn’t use Red Blue and White...Eddie REALLY fikn shits me to tears on this one. I've said all this before, but.....
Speaking of "campaigners", we should campaign for Collingwood to get rid of their fake home kit, which is the predominantly black one with the white number. I reckon that kit started all the perceived clashes with other dark outfits, which obviously resulted in the several 'gross' clash strips that other clubs had to concoct, just because precious Collingwood wanted to copy Port Adelaide by having a predominantly black jumper.
Fat Eddie bangs on that they haven't changed their jumper in 2,000 years, which is complete bullshit. It's got me fa'rked how The Pies were ever allowed to use the mostly black jumper in the first place, especially as a home kit.
Their real strip is the mostly white one with the black number, which is so unlike the prison bar jumper that if Port had a black back and white number, they could just about wear them against each other.
We should be.We are not asking to wear the Prison Bars against Collingwood.
Greg Phillips played for the Port Adelaide Football Club, not the Port Adelaide Magpies. Eddie getting his eras mixed up.More footage from footy classified.
Eddie ranting more and then talking about Greg Phillips and then being an idiot some more.
I'd just request a lot of MCG games vs Collingwood until they sort one out. Just get our jumper on the national stage permanently first.We should be.
Not in away games against them, our club still needs to have a clash guernsey like every other club in the league. But in our home games we should be entitled to wear whatever the fu** we want, whether against Collingwood or anyone else.
