Your desperate pleas for a rivalry to exist merely highlights the fact that it doesn’t exist. Your quote explicitly describes a one way rivalry. You can’t believe everything you read, but you had better start to believe in your irrelevance.
Caro has you guys marked for termination and relocation, and I know how much you Norfies value her investigative journalism. You should focus more on surviving and less on the big fish that are well beyond your depth.

  • Prior to the round 14 match between Essendon and North Melbourne, Kevin Sheedy infamously labeled Kangaroos executives Greg Miller and Mark Dawson ‘marshmallows’, referring to their softness. North would win that clash by 18 points on the Friday night stage, adding to the intensity of when the two would meet again, which would be in the Qualifying Final.
  • This match had all the hype in the lead up, as it was known as the ‘marshmallow match on the back of the round 14 clash earlier that year. Unfortunately for the Bombers sake, North Melbourne triumphed again, winning by 22 points. Remarkable scenes followed, as Roos’ fans hurled marshmallows at Kevin Sheedy as he walked along the boundary line towards the dressing rooms.
How sweet it was, picking up filthy marshmellows from the ground, brought in by dirtbag bummer supporters who had intended to bombard us with their sticky goo, and hurling the stinking things at them and their coach (although to be fair, isn't Sheedy the only * coach to have leadd them to a finals victory in the last 50 or so years???).

Oh for the love of almighty Allah. Highlighted for your convenience from your quote is the very definition of a one sided rivalry. Happy Easter 🥴View attachment 856097
You don't know what the word "igniting" means, do you?

Hint: it means you look foolish in using the term "very definition".

“Norf fans have long been bitter”
“Arguably igniting a rivalry”

Are you campaigners genuinely this stupid?
Oh dear, the first sentence is context (and true). If a rivalry (like a fire) has been ignited, then by definition, it exists. The source of ignition is irrelevant. Duh.

It's genuinely stupid to interpret it otherwise.

We're never so stupid as when we try to look clever.

On a side note, I personally couldn't give a sh*t about the so-called rivalry. I despise Essendon, but I don't see the need to put a broader label on that feeling.

All 17 other teams are rivals at some stage (game day), and I carry varying levels of antipathy for most, and ambivalence to a few.

I actually have a fair few Essendon-supporting mates. Outside of football, they're good blokes / gals.

The North/Essendon rivalry is based on historical factors that the modern day Essendon supporter would be incapable of understanding. They’re the type that prefer their ”rivalries“ manufactured ie Collingwood.
It's no "rivalry" on our behalf.

It's pure ****ing hatred.

As for the average scum supporter, well, you're dealing the materialistic bottom feeders of the afl. These are the type of people who relate to football as a "product".

Proper deep rooted rivalries get confused with teams who have a moment in time.
