Hi Pies Fam!

1) How did you come to be a Pies fan?

Born into it, my father began barracking for the pies back in the 60's when he joined his local club as young fella, the local club just so happen to flaunt the Black and White. The rest is history.

2) How old were you when you went to/watched your first game?

Unfortunately growing up in Tasmania, it was quite hard to get over a see a game. I believe I was around 8 or 9, visiting family in Adelaide, went to watch a classic Power v Crows showdown in 2004.

3) Who's your favourite Collingwood player?
Growing up it was Didak, and then Pendles. Currently loving the hard pressure Taylor Adams brings.

4) What is your favourite Collingwood moment?

Destoying Richmond in the 2018 prelims.

Hi my name is Jason, been a long time viewer and yes now I'm a first time caller

1) How did you come to be a Pies fan?
Have to thank my brother in law as I grew up in a family full of north supporters, he was around on the weekends and we watched Pies games

2) How old were you when you went to/watched your first game?

I was living in a small town not far from Warrnambool I didn't get to too many games, But when I was 16 I went and saw the Semi Final v's Essendon which we won by 63 points, I was one of the 91k at the game with no roof on the southern stand, got sunburn badly but enjoyed the trip on the train back to Warrnambool after.

3) Who's your favourite Collingwood player?

Was Gavin Brown back in the day but now JDG is my favourite.

4) What is your favourite Collingwood moment?

Seeing Pants hold up the ball at the end of the 1990 Granny does it for me, Always will

For your first match you got an absolute beauty. My second favourite of all time.
And you're right, it was unbelievably warm that day, like a mid summers day.
That moment when Madden and Kickett fumbled and the pies swooped on the ball was out of this world. I was going nuts.

Realise I'm posting in here a little bit late, but I thought I'd give it a whirl anyway. Better late than never hey!

1) How did you come to be a Pies fan?
Born into it, like many others. My dad was born into it (he was born in July of '59, doesn't take a genius to work out what sparked that conception ;) ), and his father was actually president of the Pies for a few years. Never was going to be part of any other support base with that heritage!

2) How old were you when you went to/watched your first game?
First game I went to was the 2002 GF. Got used to heartbreak from a young age, lol.

3) Who's your favourite Collingwood player?
Pendles. Most entrancing player I've ever seen.

4) What is your favourite Collingwood moment?
Probably have to be Heater smothering Riewoldt on the line. Really thought Nick was a flog at the time, was so perfectly sweet

The usual way born into it with the customary scarf not long after coming into the world.

Would be VIC Park maybe 1985 around then. Scary as a youngster.

Hi everyone!
Been sporadically checking bigfooty for training reports, trade news etc over the last 18 months or so and thought it was about time i started an account so i could actually contribute some thoughts instead of piggy backing!! To answer the questions

How did i become a pies fan?
I thought this was genetic no?

How old was i when i first attended a game?
I think i was about 5, went to see us beat hawthorn at the g when hawthorn was ordinary in about '03. Haven't seen us beat them too many times since!

Favourite pies player?
I really fell in love with the club in the year after we drafted daisy and pendles, so I'd say pendles all in all. But since that's a bit obvious I've been rolling with Tay Adams as my favourite over the last few years. Even when we weren't much good through 15-17 I loved the way he improved his game, cracked in and generally tried to open the game up. Bleeds for the jumper.

Favourite moment?
Many to choose from, beating geelong in the 2010 prelim would have to be up there. All of 2018 was a pretty good ride too.

Look forward to chatting with you all.

Hi Pies Fans,
1) How did I come to be a Pies Fan
Born into it. Grew up in Clifton Hill at my grannies place. Mum and Dad were fanatics, Dad worked in Collingwood in Smith Street. They went to all the home matches at Vicky Park.
2) How old was I when went to first game.
I started going to Vicky Park in 1957 when 7 with my sister who was 4. We mostly were interested in feeding and sitting on the Police Horses at that stage. But we quickly developed into fanatics
3) who’s my favourite Pies player
Pretty much each decade there was a special, loved Thorold Merret, Barry Price, Peter McKenna, John Greening, Peter Diacos, Gavin Brown, Bucks and best of all Pendles
4) what is your favourite Pies moments
Raising the 58 flag at Vicky Park 1990 premiership, 2010 premiership especially smashing Geelong in prelim, recent smashing Richmond in 2018 Prelim and 1 pointer over West Coast 2920

You have left it late in life to join BF! You're older than me. Barry Price was a particular favourite of mine - those little stab passes on the run to Mc Kenna were sublime to watch.

Hi All,

I have posted in a couple of threads last year, but thought i'd introduce myself.

1) How did you come to be a Pies fan?
Majority of my family are Collingwood.

2) How old were you when you went to/watched your first game?
I was probably about 5-6 years old when i went to my first game.

3) Who's your favourite Collingwood player?
Through the years it's been.

Peter Daicos.
Sav Rocca.
Nathan Buckley.
Nick Maxwell.
Steele Sidebottom.
Jeremy Howe.

4) What is your favourite Collingwood moment?
Would have to be the 2018 Prelim, my fanmily and i went to that game with the thought, it was fantastic to get this far, but the Tigers were too good. BUt we know how that turned out. Note: it was great to see Tigers fans leaving at half time, especially since they were gtting us so much crap before the game.

Or getting to go to the 2010 GF draw with dodgy passout tickets.
