Not in the VFL though. Like everything else the Hall of Fame is all about 'THE CENTRE OF THE SPORTING UNIVERSE!!!!!'. Look at the Brownlow, Coleman, Norm Smith etc. Everything is still badged from the VFL days. Grand final at the MCG until the Sun consumes the Earth, we can't wear our guernsey because our history isn't VFL history, etc.
Whilst the Victorians piss me off, I can at least respect they are fighting to keep all their goodies. It's the likes of Adelaide and unfortunately these days our own club, of non-Victorian sides not banding together to form a counter-block to push their own interests that infuriates me. Instead they let the Vics divide and conquer us/them over and over.
Our right to wear the Prison Bars is a perfect case where the non-Vic sides could show the AFL that they need to stop paying lip service to it being a national competition and start treating all clubs equally. The non-Vic sides should be strongly, publicly behind us wearing the PB's whenever we want against whoever we want. A line in the sand that we (non-Vic clubs) aren't going to accept the scraps left over after our money (license fees earlier and now ensuring TV viewers across the four states WA, NSW, QLD and SA that are worth more than Victoria alone) saved them and keeps them afloat now.
Instead we get 'hur de hur Port Power 1996' or 'You didn't let us hijack the state jumper!' from across the road and indifferent silence from the other non-Vic clubs. Whilst all non-Victorian clubs frustrate me, Adelaide do more than any other, because they honestly think they are seated at the table with the big boys and can't see they are laughed at when their back is turned.
