    The Poles endured fascism then communism. Surely they have suffered enough?

    Last time posted on BigFooty 2009.
    Thought I'd come back.

    1) Collingwood supporter since 1970 GF ( still f###ing hate Carlton).
    2) Who's your favourite Collingwood player?
    Rene Kink, Ronnie Wearmouth, Michael Gayfer, Dennis Banks, Billy Picken just to name a few.
    Now a days probably Adam Treloar, Jamie Elliot and Josh Smith
    3) What is your favourite Collingwood moment? Obviously the 1990 & 2010 Premierships.
    BUT
    The day the boys lined up Jake King and bashed him. Kingy had whacked Alan Didak.
    Then as soon as they could, Tarkyn Lockyer grabbed him and everyone came from everywhere to whack him back.
    Started big melee.
    Still love looking at it.

    4) How did you come to be a Pies fan? Watching 1970 GF...see other thread.

    Hi guys n gals,
    Long time lurker seems a understatement.
    Been a pie man since I can remember ,being a 70s child the early years were rough there ain't no second prize springs to mind.Then came 1990,Millane with the sherrin held high as the seiren sounded etched in my memory!for that reason 'Pants' ranks high on my fav players.Still remember Millane running the wing at vic park on a cold winters day,in battle against the saints.The man had such presence I remember more than one saint player taking a short step that day at the sight of a raging bull coming there way.
    As for why follow the pies?Its like it's a way of life black and white in the veins.
    Pie for life

    Hi All long time reader first time poster !
    Looking forward to joining the banter and celebrating all things collingwood!

    Have had black and white running through my veins since 1st day on earth. Older brother is pies and luckily he was around as rest of the family are sainters (fair to assume 2010 xmas lunch was a bit awkward). Favorite player was definitely Daicos and while kids were watching wiggles, seasame street i was always glued to the magician and is special goals on VHS. Loved going to the park straight after and pretending to be Daics!

    Go pies!!!

    1) Who do you barrack for?
    I barrack for anything Collingwood.
    2) Who's your favourite Collingwood player?
    These days it would be Grundy or Treloar (those two just don't know how to give up at anything!!) All time Bob Rose, John Greening or Peter Daicos. Those three stand out above a glut of others. (though Mick McGuane,Gavin Brown and Pants Millane don't miss out by much)
    3) What is your favourite Collingwood moment? '58 GF....nothing comes close.
    4) How did you come to be a Pies fan?
    I was born into a Collingwood family and taken to Viccy Park by my Grandparents as soon as I could walk....that was 1950. Now I'm the Grandparent taking my grand kids!!
