Definitely.....I would still prefer Anzac day over a showdown, what better way to emphasise our history than to respect players that served our country and played for Port Adelaide such as Bob Quinn etc..
The showdowns are really only a history since 97.
We would never have a home Anzac Round game again!

Caro also said the AFL have finally given the club confirmation they will let the club makes its presentation to the Commission postseason.

Caro started off with coaches wearing PB's a few weeks ago then said - "Port have a date, OR they've certainly sent a letter to the AFL Commission, and the AFL Commission have agreed, to sit down with Keith Thomas, if he's still there as CEO or his replacement, and David Koch and the board and listen to their bid to play every showdown, not just home showdowns in the Prison Bar jumper."

Then goes on about push back from AFC, Kane's father Graham Cornes says it will be a disadvantage to Adelaide, incredibly, if they had to play Port in a PB jumper, the panel laughs. How?? someone asks.

"It's not an ambit claim, but they'd take home showdowns, and this is not going away, and there is going to be a meeting with the commission, post season.

Lloyd asks collingwood supporter and fill in host for Hutchy, Tony Jones for his view on it.
TJ Do you have any issue with it??
"Not at all. If its a one off game, once a year, why not celebrate their tradition? It's not like Port Adelaide JUST, became Port Adelaide when they joined the AFL. I, ah, its a real bee in Eddie's bonnett and he's gotta get over it. I just, let Port Adelaide wear the prison bar jumpers for that one game" Caro then interrupts and starts joking about TJ never hosting the show again after that comment.

Caro goes on a bit that it will be really interesting where it goes.

Reckon TJ gave a good summary of what Commission will probably allow, that enough people know Port just didn't come out of thin air into the AFL, but 1 game a year will probably all that gets approved.

Watch between 41.40 and 43.40 at 9 Now, but you will probably have sit thru 10 or 12 ads before you see the discussion.

Caro was saying there may be pushback from the Crows to wear the PB's in their showdown because reasons.

I would be pushing for Anzac day instead...running out with the PB's on Anzac day would be bigger than a crow showdown.

Lol, Adelaide are so short sighted and fixated on Port, rather than how this could help them in the long term. If they could tear themselves away from their own ineptitude for 5 minutes, they'd realise 2020 has ripped away the veneer that the competition is run for all clubs equally and not for the Vic clubs first, second and third. Given this they should be embracing anything that shows that Victoria isn't the 'only true football state, with only our clubs mattering'. Instead it's hur dee hur hur Port Power 1996.

The crows would love nothing more than us being a run of the mill, composite, teal version of them.

Their ambassadors and ex-players/coaches actively pushed for this back when we were falling apart under the weight of the sanfls financial expectations.

Tony Jones is horrible, this year he keeps doing and saying things where I think he's not that bad and I wish he wouldn't.

He even got stuck in to Caro a few times and she mentioned Port quite a bit and thought she had an agenda against us.

The club went all out with a petition and a campaign. To get the jumper for one game per year is a mockery.
I don't think KT is the right man to present this case.

Based on what was said on Footy Classified, it seems like the objection by the Crows is conjecture based on what old mate Graham has said about it in the media.

The presentation will no doubt be an interesting one. I think Kochie will be a good person for this. He is a very good salesman.
