Concur.Did you come to the pre-function?
David came and spoke plenty about the PB debate. AFL need to pull their finger out and make a call because we aren’t going to table the issue. We are sick of asking for something that is ours.
I’m sure if you spoke to him he would tell you the same thing.
Not from what I can tell having spoken to him just this Saturday. Did he tell you he doesn’t give a sh*t? It’s easy to make judgement calls on people if you haven’t conversed with what they had to say
There’s a nice way to go about the conversation. The time and place would be at a football game where the team he is President of, is playing. You’re not going to abuse him in front if his family, but I don’t see an issue in a paying member asking for 30 seconds of his time at a football match, for the same that people ask him for a photo
If you pulled him aside from the Koch family reunion in Margaret River, perhaps a different story.
Don't bring any other uniform to the match, force them to make a decision. It'd be way more embarrassing for the AFL to call off a game because a team wore a guernsey that wasn't approved (for no good reason) than it would be to just let us play and fine us.The only real concern for me with #CopTheFine is that the umpires are instructed to not commence the match, although I don't know at all what the process would be for the umpires ensuring that uniform standards are met so I imagine there would be a bit of a mad scramble between the time we run out and the first bounce if we tried this on.
They will never tear us apartImagine the roar from the crowd if it happened Friday night.
I think its time to replace the end of NTUA with a chorus of "Bring Back the Bars".
They certainly were previously, is the new club leadership trying to distance themselves from their previous racist buffoon of a president?I'm almost certain the AFL has approved the prison bars to be worn in the Round 8 Port Adelaide v Adelaide game.
Collingwood isn't even opposed to this, the only opposition would be for it to be worn in all home games.
The AFL and club would be delaying the announcement to build hype.
Also didn't know that McDermott's grandfather was Les Dayman, Port Adelaide star of the 1920s and 30s, league leading goalkicker in 1930 with 89 (not 99 as first thought), 2nd in the Magarey Medal as a ruckman in 1925.Inaugural Crows captain Chris McDermott just said on The Front Bar that the PBs is a fantastic guernsey and that we should definitely be allowed to wear it in the AFL.
He has talked about it a few times over the years in interviews I've heard. He was a Woodville supporter as a kid because Les - or Bro as he was known, got involved with Woodville, even before its early days in the SANFL and McDermott was taken to home games by grandpa and he got to meet the players and they became his heroes. He has said he was shattered as a kid when he found out he couldn't play for them as he lived in the Glenelg zone - don't know where, but he did go to Brighton High with Stephen Kernahan.Also didn't know that McDermott's grandfather was Les Dayman, Port Adelaide star of the 1920s and 30s, league leading goalkicker in 1930 with 89 (not 99 as first thought), 2nd in the Magarey Medal as a ruckman in 1925.
