There seems to be a lot of negativity on the board recently due to our lack of form. Be it justified or not, it is not the reason why we come on here to post.

I thought I would crack something out to reminisce in a few of the brighter times we have had in our short lives as SUNS supporters.

I want everyone to reach back and go through our back catalogue of victories and determine which victory has been the best to you. The word description of 'best' can be for any number of reasons!

Was it a scintillating come from behind victory to beat the Power for our first win?
Could it be an against all odds upset of the Swans at the SCG?
Maybe it is a victory that sticks out in your mind for personal/sentimental reasons?

Once a few people have posted, I will set a poll and we can decide up until now, the Gold Coast SUNS greatest ever victory :blacksunrays:

I used to think it was the Collingwood win when we had no bench in the final term but Sydney upset in 2018 takes it for me given how much of an underdog we were and the fact we didn’t tend to play well in the second half of the year. Keep in mind we came back from being 6 or 7 goals down at quarter time too! Up to then too the SCG wasn’t too kind to us as well.

Definitely up there - I remember the feeling after that win that we were going to make finals. But then the severity of Abletts injury hit and I dont know if we even won another game?

1. v Collingwood 2014 // RIP gary ablett
2. v Sydney at SCG // Comeback from 40 points or so
3. v West Coast 2020 // Got pumped by port and the rise of Rowell
4. v Geelong // Bennell kicks 6
5. v Hawks // 84 point win when we we lost by like 80 against GWS the week before

The Carlton game in 2012 I think was one of our biggest upsets. Carlton were not a terrible team and we were a rabble. But the Blues took us lightly and we just come out absolutely firing.

As I was lucky enough to be there, the come from behind win against port to record our first ever win. That one will always stand out for me.
Notable mentions to Collingwood game in 2014… I think?
And the come from 40 ish points down against Sydney at the SCG.

But the first gets the win for mine.

Where do you rate the Suns first ever win back in 2011 against Port? Justin Westhoff missing the shot on goal after the siren.

Favourite was the Karmichael kick after the siren. Flew up to cairns for a weekend away with some mates, had a great weekend and that just topped it off. Wasn’t massive in terms of the season but the atmosphere and who it was really made it a great night. Anytime we beat the pies is also good
