Understandable, the last couple of years must have been hard for you cuc** watching your team of geriatrics getting rolled week in week out.Can't stand the dockers and hope they lose every game they play.I have a very strong hatred for the pricks,the fans,players and club,im a die-hard Eagle until my last breath.The dockers are a sh*tstain on the competition
Living in Perth I'd agree with this, wonder if it's the same in SA? Pretty sure vic is about your team and couldn't give a flying about "state", that died with SOO. lol
This thread lol, bunch of Eagles fans start banging on about how awful we are before a Freo person got a word in.
They're a better team sure, but it's the 'I'm a better person than you because I support the Eagles.' vibe I get off them that's ******* nauseous. Like genuinely they speak to you like they're the most perfect people in the world. You're not mate, you just support a more successful team.
Props to the club and their players though, they've done well to build the team they have
I couldn't care less about the Eagles, I don't follow them, and if there's a story about them on social media then I skip over. Honestly, they're just another team, and unfortunately as a result the derby just isn't really all that spicy. If they're a good team at the time, it's great that Freo defeat a good opponent (if they can lol, it's looking more promising recently). I cannot emphasise enough that as an organisation I respect West Coast, I go to Laika regularly and quite like their MinRes setup.You get a vibe?
That they think they are better than you because of the teams you both follow?
Sounds like you lack self confidence. Or you met some rich, old Eagles supporters who think they are better than everyone, not just you. PS every club has them btw.
My dislike of Freo grew during the period they started sniping and punching on because they werent winning and they decided to stop playing the ball and went the man.
Hayden Ballantyne came along.
Solomon was brought in as a FIFO tough guy.
Fyfe being a self centered fwitt.
Walters talking over from Hayden.
The current team seems to be heading the right direction though, focusing on football. Will be better after Walters and Fyfe retire.
As for their supporters some are decent however so many have a chip on their shoulder about the Eagles they seem obsessed with anything negative about them. A bad news story about the Eagles they celebrate more than winning games. Beating the Eagles is the highlight of the season.
Federation square...Eagles fans seem pretty obnoxious. The boooing is so far beyond what’s normal it’s embarrassing. The armchair ride they get at home should also be the subject of a Royal Commission. Plus their druggo culture is disgusting. Looking forward to your replies
At least you stick to your convictions haha, the incident you're talking about was when I was a whopping 5 years old.My dislike for Freo came in their second year - I was keen on giving them a go so i rocked up to a game at Subi with a ticket in the old standing area, remember the concrete steps with the bars to lean on?? I got there for the WAFL curtain raiser (happened often in them days) so i was well and truly entrenched when the people started flooding in for the AFL game. Pretty much as soon as the game started, i was getting abuse from the tossers behind me for standing up (in a standing section) cos a couple of them had kids who couldnt see cos they were short people. I sat down, and quickly realised that wasnt going to work as i would be watching the footy through the fence, so i stood back up.
The abuse got worse and worse, my two mates buckled and sat down but i am made of sterner stuff. I kid you not, there was a literal shower of rubbish flying onto us, including a full plastic water bottle that sconed me on the head. Half way through the last quarter, a couple of cops came down to see what the hoo-ha was about. when they came up to me the who crowd behind me cheered like Freo had won the flag - they thought the cops were going to escort us out. I quickly told the cops to help me out and get them to stop chucking s**t at me which they did do. as the cops were walking back up the stand, I stood there defiantly and gave the w***er supporters both birds which they couldnt do anything about cos the cops were watching them.
best thing about the game? Freo lost.
TL;DR - freo fans are jerks.
