You make it sound like they had a choice, do you think if they had stood their ground and said we are Port Magpies and we wear Black and White stripes they would of been given entry to the AFL.Port Adelaide - couldn't relinquish the Magpies and the uniform quick enough to get into the AFL.
I think the AFL is realising why the SANFL and all the supporters of those clubs that came together to form Adelaide, despise them so much. And why it literally broke Graham Cornes' heart to see both his sons play there.
They gave their word with fingers crossed behind their back, but they signed a deal, now stick to it. Stop being a ******* pest. It's why fans all over the country have such joy in watching this team fail after having a dominant season.
At the time all they wanted was to not be left behind and be in the AFL, like any new club they made some mistakes but all new clubs do. They said and did what they needed to gain entry. You don't lose your history and heritage because you changed competitions.
