I disagree with thatReally good point you made about “most of the players come from interstate”
Last year the club posted a video of Ken speaking to Butters on draft night and it’s stuck with me.
Ken said, and I quote word for word, “we’re all Victorian boys...most of the boys we’ve got are [Victorian]”.
40 seconds in
Sure, maybe Kens just trying to make Butters feel comfortable? But I see as more evidence that Ken and the playing group have no idea what it means to be Port Adelaide.
All the honour for playing for the guernsey, all the respect for the tradition...gone.
I guess it’s not even Ken or the playing group’s fault - they didn’t grow up watching Port Adelaide. They’ve never been told what Port Adelaide is. Nor have they been sat down and been demanded of Port Adelaide standard.
