I was at that game in 1995. For the whole game I only saw a dozen people in blue and yellow. It was almost intimidating, except the Pies fans around me were quite pleasant and had no problem with me barracking hard for my team. and on the way out I was only threatened by one person. Not bad for a Collingwood crowd. Standing on the platform at Jolimont station was intimating, though. About 500 of them and just me. Decided to keep my celebrations in check.

We had a real good run on then, nearly put my fist through my bedroom door in real time when that happened. One of those moments where you could argue it cost us the game.

Have been to the last few games against Collingwood at the mcg. Twice sat in there cheer squad, horrible. Cant imagine how bad Victoria Park must have been. There is a lot of preppy young kids, rich middle agers and Geordie Shore type people now with there big membership-cant imagine many of those sorts back in the day. Would absolutely love to win this. 6 point game.
Same here. Got a photo with Joffa during the last quarter of the 2008 game :D. Was amongst Pies fans during the semi in 2012. They hated me by the end of the game, lucky I had a Pies supporting friend with me to keep the peace

Awesome. A photo with Joffa and the big eagles guy would be the magnum opus of game photos!

Being mates with an opposition supporter definitely can come in handy! Im more of a yell out a cmon or go the big fist pump etc type of supporter. Some enjoy the jumping out of seats and standing up cheering for goal.............Collingwood really hate that "were paid members of the collingwood football club, sit the %$#&* down get the *$##*@ out of our ground or we'll smash your %$#@@ heads in you ***#$$# ##^&@** eagles $#@!&* rich @$%%!^^ trash.

Saw a girl the last game White jeggings, black g-string, half cut collingwood top and ugboots. She was the only one the cheer squad would bow down to. Sorta the Mayors daughter.

If you thought the Eagles record vs Collingwood at the MCG was bad, you were wrong - its absolutely pathetic. We have 1 win against the Pies in 28 years of our history. A lot people including myself have considered Port Adelaide to be our bogey team and to a lesser extent I think they are. But this disastrous record against the Pies is probably our most shameful record we have, and that includes the wooden spoon and 100+ point thumpings,

The last (and only time) we have beaten Collingwood at the MCG was in 1995. Since then we have lost 8 games straight in this fixture. If youre like me youll put $20 on the pies to win this weekend as a reverse mocker attempt to try and get an Eagles win. But god forbid should we ever come up against Eddies mob on grand final day.

Does even the most optimistic Eagles fan see this losing streak coming to an end this weekend with our current group? Why the hell can't we beat them at the MCG?
This team is unable to step up in big games. Hasn't happened away from home without the old guns in many many years.
Collingwoods midfield is arguably one of the best in the comp and no matter how you swing it, a great midfield means you are going to win more games than you lose. I don't see us winning at all this weekend.

I was at that 95 game as a 10 year old. Jason Ball kicked a goal out of the ruck with 2mins to go to put us in front. Pies took a mark 30m out as the siren went and umps (correctly) didnt award it. Their fans went ape shit spitting and abusing me and my old man like we were the ones who blew the siren. hated them ever since.

Wow. We were at the same game, yet our experiences were completely different. Maybe it's because I'm 6'6" why people at the footy don't tend to abuse me.

Not gunna happen this week, might not get broken for another 4 or 5 years:eek: Depending on where we finish this year, we might only play them once next year, most likely away cause we play them later this year at home, then maybe home the year after, etc etc, I know it doesn't always work like that, but assuming we are shit for a while longer can't see us beating them anywhere in the next few year.
