We played our first games in it. If we want to celebrate our history - and not just our favourite bits it makes complete sense.
I disagree, for me the ongoing wearing of the PB's is more important than just next year.
Diluting it next year may make things harder for ongoing years.

Strange of them to say they know what’s important to the Port Adelaide family , but also arrogantly go ahead with co captaincy.

It's a family with the loyalty and values of one where the spoilt kids end up putting the parents whove bankrolled their whole lives into a home then defrauding them of their inheritance before their six feet under...

NUFC, YES.

I just want Ports to be like Port Adelaide again. So sick of this plastic shitshow.
Speaking of which, Jarrod Walsh’s perpetual cacophony of gimmicky **** at the breaks while we were getting reamed in yet another Showdown on Saturday night was extra dislocating.

It’s becoming increasingly harder to see what the point of us is.

Just sick of watching tricky dicky gameplans.
Gameplan based footy comes off once in a blue moon as it either doesn't work or gets found out in time for finals.
There's already been a couple of blue moons in recent years wrt premierships so that quota has been filled.

The longer they hang onto Hinkley without success the more likely Koch and KT will be replaced.
If there was at least one club director that opposed the Hinkley extension, make them chairman.
I wonder where Ross Haslam stood.

I have. I didn't connect any of it with Ross in particular or I glossed over it but it sounded like the directors were too compliant anyway. Obviously he's not a fav of yours. Although you appear positive about Kevin O.
I might appear so ... I used to be ... but I’m not.

At least he stopped telling us to raise our scarves. Someone somewhere is listening

I don't understand how we got it so right in 2013 and 2014 with marketing, our history and our traditions and now we're at this point only a few years later. Stunning and abhorrent decline.

Whoever was getting it right has either had a lobotomy or an absolute moron has taken over.

I ******* hate what we are.

You are ignoring the NOVELTY of 2013 and 2014.

Maybe its the new Sydney whizz they got in this year. Who was steering the ship before that?

It was a different set up and culture at the top level compared to now though. Koch was less rabid. Let’s see what happens this year.
As I’ve pointed out on a number of threads, Koch’s rabidity revealed itself off-season 2014-2015.

And, as you have pointed out (to me at least), Voss’s recruitment - pun intended - was part of that.

It’s become worse now, toxic. I don’t know why KT would stay where he is. Boys club, sycophants.
