I actually thought the commentary was cheering for GWS.
Bruce and friends talk up the team with the biggest Victorian following to start (got to pay the bills) until one side gets up a bit, then they talk up the losing team to make it sound closer (got to keep viewers interested), and then if it's a flogging it's back to talking about the team with the biggest Victorian following (positive if they're winning, negative if they're losing).

We got Saints, GWS, Saints tonight. The fun ones are the one-sided floggings like Brisbane against Essendon or Gold Coast against North, where it results in an entire telecast about one team (casual chat, then cheering them on, and then simple disappointment).

Honest question, I lived in sydney for a couple years recently. Are all GWS supporters secondary? Do any support GWS exclusively? I went to a few games and got the vibe everyone went for other teams first.

Plenty support GWS exclusively. Probably the majority support GWS with a soft spot for a prior team. The minority still stick to our old teams.

Best of luck. Great feel about the club and Spotless is a fantastic venue. It was bizarre we couldn't get any merch Grand Final week by walking into sports stores, but I'm sure it will get better.

Could well have been the group I was sitting with then. west coast, Collingwood and bulldog supporters who all had memberships as they were expats and wanted to see plenty of footy living in sydney. Even I had a number 17 giants jumper.

I'm a Sydney based Giants foundation member and my family and I have been members since day 1.

Would you believe me if I said Giants exclusively ?
