That's right a flog who has supported this club for 45 years, but you can post factually incorrect dribble, when you are corrected you resort to name calling .
Quoting something Roger James allegedly said to support your argument and then referring to him as a legend of the club.
DELUSIONAL.
Definition of delusional? Not rating any Power players achievements in the clubs history....

You sir, NFI.

I never said anything factually incorrect. You are subaru levels of absolute drivel, making up an argument and running with it, frothing at some stupid misconception that I am in some way against Port Adelaide.

And LOL 'allegedly'

Fact is that we now have supporters in their 20’s who have no real link towards the prison bars. Theyve seen us wear it 3 times. I can understand completely that we have a portion of the supporter base who could not care less if we wear the prison bars or not. Doesnt mean they dont respect the history, just means they prefer what we wear now
Exactly, and it doesn't make them any less of a fan than us.

And in a decade we'll have fans who relate to the V only...

There was an entire generation of South Sydney supporters who only saw their club fighting off wooden spoons year on year. Yet the slogan “Pride Of The League” remained meaningful to them because club legends and older supporters passed down the stories and traditions of that club. It resonated with them enough that they first fought off attempts to merge them with rivals, and then take to the streets to fight a giant media organisation for the club’s survival, so these traditions were there to hand down to their kids in the future.
It’s up to the club, it’s legends, and it’s older supporters to ensure the traditions, heritage and iconic images of Port Adelaide resonate with younger fans.
Just because these fans have grown up with a different jumper doesn’t mean they’d have an aversion to the bars.

and we argue in circles all we like about guernsey designs. The real barrier to growth is the onfield shitshow we've been for most of the last 15 years. Except for the false dawn of 6/7 years ago why the fu** would any of the unaffiliated what to join that rolling circus of underachievement

Not rating any Power players because I said James is not a legend of the club ?
What a stupid comment.
No wonder you are getting stuff all support on here.

I dont like anything that says "this would be ideal" and then picture says that the Prison bars we wore in 2014 aren't our home strip.
I like how a thread about us wearing our traditional Prison Bars guernsey has morphed into yet another "post your favourite prison bars inspired guernsey" thread.

Not saying that some of the designs aren't sexy though. Especially where the white of the PBs is replaced by a very faint, almost white, silver.

I saw your list, missing any recent player, you sure you aren't one of those Port supporters who was against the Power?

I'm getting more support than you, it's not my fault you can't read.

The Ray Morgan data is so horribly flawed.

Aside from the obvious Sydney trash figure, just looking at the 2 SA teams and the immediate impression I get is that people are passively selecting the Crows but actively selecting Port. The conversion rate of "supporters" to "members" is outrageously high for Port compared to Crows and most likely isn't representative of reality.

Of course it's not surprising that the fraudulent SMA would use a fraudulent survey to screw over Port.
It makes sense...
If I didn't like footy, I would probably have picked the Crows!
