... a few years later ...
I've highlighted an important bit of info for you.

I know it's hard for someone who holds a grudge over many decades to understand, but circumstances change and they needed to change their stance on that.

This was about the same time that Sturt were courting the Crows to be their reserves team.

...A few years later Sturt win the flag with the major contributors being Zane Kirkwood and Kory Beard. How did that happen? Know your station and stick to volunteering to pick up dog poo before training.
“Know your station” would have to be the most inane term used these days when someone has nothing more to offer, coming from you it’s a step up.

Serious question, are any sanfl flags won by the "port magpies " when they were a separate team counted in Ports tally and considered the same as all the others?
( also, i hope the prison bars are worn more in the AFL, but calling the best competition in the country a tin pot state league and Eddie every name under the sun doesn't really help get people on side )

They are counted in Port Adelaide club history as SANFL flags.

yes and I feel this devalues the flags when the SANFL was a quality competition

I guess that is an unavoidable conflict of one club with two teams in two leagues

Typical snake oil salesman dribble from Koch to rile up the Power throng to distract from other issues, this club does it every possible time they can because they know it’ll get lapped up by the supporters. When their own board chose to turn Port Magpies into a Power Reserves team and had to give up their SANFL junior zones they blamed it on the SANFL despite it being a condition of the AFL.
I can’t stand Maguire but South Australians have been suffering this inane $hit for decades.
Don't you honestly as a South Australian want something from our state's heritage recognized in the AFL? I hate Sturt but if there was a Sturt AFL team i would completely support a push for them to wear their proper jumper.

SANFL Flags should probably be looked at differently from when the Crows came in and the player drain really kicked in tbh, I mean the list of Magarey Medal winners since then aside from Nathan Buckley is a list of absolute nobodies then you add something laughable like Roy Laird's coaching record being compared to Williams, Oatey, Cahill etc.

I really don’t care what Port Power wear in the AFL, my comments are related to the clip I commented on where Maguire is saying that Koch is just stirring up the Port supporters and that he should be more honest with them. I agree with him and it’s typical repetitive vapid Koch low hanging fruit rhetoric.

The SANFL probably should have changed its name but it's sadly all irrelevant now, except those who experienced what it once was

FWIW, nobody bar Essendon and Carlton fans really give two shits about the total number of premierships won over a century and a bit.

Time to close this sh*t thread as everyone is sick of the port jumper whining.

I was interested in Maguire’s perspective as I’ve already said, it’s rare I agree with him but on this I did..
All previously explained if you read back on things.
Of course you do.

I'm interest of fairness, what'd you think of the Crows trying to claim a State Guernsey?

A bit 50/50 really, as part of their initial make up I guess it’s got some credit but I don’t agree with it as a bloke that grew up with SOG footy. Then again the Big V is prostituted over and over again with embarrassingly bull$hit charity games so where’s the respect to tradition?

Well, Carlton or Collingwood don't wear it do they?

And no. You aren't a State of Origin team.

And no one here gives a sh*t if a Richmond fan doesn't want to read it. No one is forcing you too.
How's it feel that you're never ever going to wear the prison bars full-time or win this fight as only Collingwood will wear the black and white prison bars full time for ever and you can't do anything about it 😆

Where up to 50 shades of whining Grey

Well grey/silver was one of the founding colours of Port Power

Collingwood changed their uniform to the predominantly black design back around 2001 I believe.

So it's not exactly a sacred design.

The Port uniform compared to the predominantly white uniform Collingwood has had throughout much of their existence are completely different.

Why doesn't Port just put a teal stripe in the middle of the prison bars or use teal and black stripes.

Then tell Eddie to shut up. He's just a team president at the end of the day.

As an olive branch agree to wear an alternative strip in games against Collingwood.
