Because the prison bars is synonymous with Port Adelaide. People think Port Adelaide, they think prison bars. A majority of our history is in the prison bars. It’s really not hard to comprehend why we want this one over the others.And you did in your 150th year celebration instead of your jumper from 150 years ago, so why not move on to another one?
In 20 years when you’ve celebrated all your different jumpers you can come around to the prison bars again.
I don’t know why Port think they should get special treatment, you chose to join a league with a team who’d been wearing black and white stripes for 105 years and you were never going to get to wear your jumper you’d worn for about 75 years in the minor leagues.
There is no reason for that to change, Collingwood have already been generous enough letting you wear it as often as they did.
