    Nah 69 sounds like it would be a great game, and someday I plan to try find 67 and 69 on DVD

    So, the modern era began in 2012 when GWS joined in. By my reckoning, the premiership tally stands at:

    3 - Hawthorn
    1 - Sydney, Western Bulldogs, Richmond, West Coast

    The only premierships of real value are the ones between 1990 and 2012. All the rest were either compromised by priority picks or no salary cap.

    Pretty tough.

    But there is footage of the 1909 GF which is pretty interesting to watch

    Ports were in a different competition, VFL flags are AFL flags same competition.

    Dont waste your time arguing.

    but this thread doesn't specify leagues - "anyone who has had their team that has had premiership wins before they were born" :)

    From what Ive read in other articles you can celebrate your old flags, count them as wins but not count them as AFL/VFL flags.
    This was pretty much always the case, I mean you won them so they count, just not on a list of AFL flag wins.

    The difference is that VFL flags are counted as AFL flags because it is the same competition.

    See no mention of the Magpies SANFL wins, yet all Richmonds VFL flags are included but not our VFA flags.

    in the article headlined "AFL Commission accepts all clubs can acknowledge their success from outside the VFL-AFL competition" (probably the one linked above behind the paywall) you can find the line "Port Adelaide chief executive Keith Thomas told The Advertiser tonight the AFL ruling does not change how his club recognises its achievements. But he is “pleased” the AFL now has the same view of the club’s 146-year history." we have always celebrated them and enemies have always argued they are a different Port's premierships, now that argument is dead they pretend we always said they were as valuable as AFL flags.

    i love the wording in that, people take such a mechanical approach to this - "i've read in the newspaper that you're allowed to celebrate your old flags" - phew thanks! it's not hard to understand, we are a senior club that came from a different competition

    Is that when your club decided to merge with the SANFL entity to try and claim some history?

    No one is counting them as VFL/AFL flags.
    Aflag in the SANFL in the 60’s though was the exact same achievement as aflag in the VFL or in the WAFL.
    Thatthe VFL went on to expand to a national league does not mean that flags in the VFL hold anymore weight than those in the SANFL or WAFL. They were all the pinnacle of football in their own states.

    Everyone knows that the Port Adelaide football club is the same club that was in the SANFL. That their was some identity issues in their early years joining the AFL was simply born out of the VFL not allowing them to be black and white, not be the magpies and how the relationship with the SANFL would continue.
    It is still the Port Adelaide football club though, arguably the greatest first tier football club in Australia and by some margin.

    The VFL was the biggest competition in the 60's and 70's and attracted many of the top interstate players to play in Victoria, dont kid yourself that all the state league comps were equal, they weren't.

    All I stated is that clubs can celebrate any of their successes as they should but only VFL flags count in the AFL premiership list as it is the same competition just renamed and further expanded.

    A flag won in a local u15 comp is still a great achievement you just cant claim them as VFL/AFL flags.
