Is this a trick question?
The ones on Bigfooty are great.
Have to say I’ve come across some peculiar types at the ground though. Still can’t forget the time I sat in front of some maniac who had brought his girlfriend to the game and was doing the condescending “I’ll help you understand the game of football” stuff. Classic when the girlfriend got tired of it and told him that the guy he had been calling Wattsy all day was actually Josh Wagner, and to shut up. I should have bought her a beer
Man going over to your board during the tim kelly thing was like walking into mordorProbably why every time I’ve intruded your board I seem to be welcome there unlike a lot of us.

Its was like being in a darkened room whilst people would take turns walking up and shrieking a rant into your ear and sashay off squealing.
Some very strange cats in there!!
I dont spend a lot of time on oppo boards but when i do - you can have a laugh and poke a bit of fun at each other and as long as you dont cross a line its all good. Coming from the eagles board where you really have to set out to be kicked out - the geelong board was somewhere i decided to never go again.
Richmond and collingwood are the best boards to visit imho good bants
Thats what it should be - fun and bullshit and one eyed one upmanship - with a bit of serious discussion here and there.I went to the West Coast board during the Kelly saga, and dealt with some of the most delusional campaigners on this site. It was fun.
Also a good lesson on what to genuinely engage with on this site and what to take the piss out of. Trade discussion, (particularly that trade discussion) should never be held seriously on this site.
Pffft you are just a shill for BigFootyThe majority of football fans (just like the majority of the human race) are incapable of understanding a counter-view, and are incapable of compromise. Everyone just finds their own confirmation bias, and slanders anyone and everyone else else
I think bigfooty is worse for one eyed fans who can’t see anything wrong with their club than attending matches. I mainly go to SA games and as feral as those Power fans can be, I love the atmosphere of it all.Are we talking bigfooty or supporter bases in general?
On Bigfooty I can understand it’s a small enough group where moderators/regular posters influence the feeling of each clubs board.
If you’re talking about clubs supporters in general? I think it’s an exercise in stupidity the variation between your average supporter of any team in Victoria would be minimal.
I think it actually gets worse the better you are. Once the expectation is there, unless you are completely dominant there will be people complaining. "How are we letting them get so close" Can't believe we are letting this spud dominate" etcBeing a Dees fan at games is unbearable, the most negative crowd you’ll ever come across. Makes the game almost unwatchable. Hopefully that changes next year.
The old money, conservative Eagles fans sh*t me. The Goodes & Jetta stuff from a while back really made me uncomfortable.
But this is, as others have mentioned, likely because fan bases are a broad church and old money conservatives sh*t me in general.
Let me be clear. You're a Geelong supporter????Obviously the internet can make it seem worse with some of the complete weirdos you can come across but I just find as a Geelong supporter the overwhelming majority are overbearing and not up to touch with reality. The only thing I actually agree with that they have to say is the obvious home game bullshit but why didn’t anyone bring that up when we were actually any good?
Let’s be honest about the club, too. They simply do not give a sh*t, they are just happy to make the 8 every year and maybe make a profit. I cannot think of a fanbase that sooks as much as ours. You also couldn’t find a more perfect pair of tossers to be the main focus. Chris Scott and Patrick Dangerfield. They’re embarrassing.
I feel like a few people here will probably agree with what I’ve personally said about my own club. I was just wondering if anyone else was as disillusioned with their fanbase as much as me? Is this normal?
Dees fans have always been like that though. The crowd was booing the players R1 2021 when we were 25 points up against Fremantle because we weren't kicking away.I think it actually gets worse the better you are. Once the expectation is there, unless you are completely dominant there will be people complaining. "How are we letting them get so close" Can't believe we are letting this spud dominate" etc
