We didn’t go b&w until 1902.

Those preceding three and a smidge decades have been known to put the “YoU’rE pOrT pOwEr NoT pOrT mAgPiEs” mouthbreathers in an intellectual bind.

We started wearing black and white in 1902, apparently because we couldn’t source the magenta dye we were using previously.

Funnily enough though Collingwood drew inspiration from the SA state guernsey (and piping shrike emblem I presume) which was black and white vertical stripes back in 1891.

I think I hate almost all the Victorian clubs these days apart from maybe the Saints.

West Coast can go eat a hairy turd too.

Port Adelaide Magpies!
Collingwood because prison bars, otherwise would have been Geelong. I had a soft spot for Collingwood pre-1990 being black & white magpies, and a soft spot for Geelong pre-2007 being non-Melbourne and underdogs: no longer.

I'm not sure what I hate more - Victorian clubs, or the corrupt, biased organisation that protects them. But wins over Geelong are the most satisfying: mainly because they're so rare. Hopefully that changes over the next few years.

Don't hate but think they shouldn't exist: GC and GWS.

Talent drain on the rest of the comp, dogshit grounds with no atmosphere, no supporters, completely uninteresting, propped up by AFL handouts, little to no progress in a decade. Now it looks like GWS are going back in the bin and GC have never not been rubbish. Just completely pointless and a waste of money.

1. Geelong. I miss when they were a novelty side with Gary Ablett Snr in my youth, now they are almost the most arrogant supporter base in the comp since 2007 and obvious reasons.

2. West Coast. Living in Perth for 20 plus years I absolutely despise this mob. Everything from their supporters to the players, to the jumper, to them being rammed down your throat 24/7.

3. Carlton. Never liked them, plus being old enough to remember how arrogant they are when they're winning.

I always thought Essendon and Carlton were kind of the same to me because of the similar reputations they share with cheating off the field and making terrible and premature coaching decisions with the likes of Hird and Malthouse. Considering they're supposed to be the most successful victorian teams the culture in the past 20 years hasn't reflected too well on that.

Story goes while Collingwood was being formed, a supporter who had just returned from a trip to South Australia, liked the look of the South Australian inter colonial team so suggested the colours and the jumper of that SA team to be Collingwood. Logo chosen because of the magpies at Victoria Park. South Australia was a part in their decision, but not Port Adelaide who had different colours at the time. Port selected black white in 1902.

I don't like drug cheats, so the dons at the top of the list and wish dank and hird jail time. But I'll like them soon as the club fully clears the decks. Not three other clubs were just as guilty as the dons, so not fans of those either.

I dislike Eddie and piss weak Port. Port should wear teal in the AFL as that is who we are now, regardless of our history. However, we should wear what ever we want without the need to look for approval from Eddie. PBs do no look like the pies guernsey and loads of clubs share colours, with no club having a mortgage over another clubs history.

port shifted away from expensive colour dye due to an economic downturn, resulting in the adoption of black and white.

Collingwood by the length of the straight. Odious in every way.

Can't find it in me to hate Geelong as I used to live there and most of my best mates are Cats fans. They also didn't rub it in after 2007, which was good of them as for years I'd bagged them about seeing 10 Port flags in my lifetime to their nil.
