It was a shit song to begin with, just spend some money on writing of an all-new song that gets the fans roaring in unison and the players can sing it after a match.

Reworking that thing is like deciding to put steelcap radials on a billy-cart !!!

Like if it was a song for a West Coast TV ad then yeah it'd be fine. just feels kinda off as a club song.

LOL.............we can smell the fear and jealousy from that response buddy. Solid gold.

I will bet a body part the Eagles won't spend 37 years between flags and nor will the fans spit on and abuse Eagles players and coaches walking off the field. (We may boo though.......it just comes naturally)

Now trot off and get your Tiger fluffy onesie to the dry cleaners and get ready for the new season.

They say a picture tells a thousand words. Their right!!

Errr, righto.

A 10 page thread on a club song update is just another indication of who the biggest club in the land is, I guess. No need to get jealous about it mate. All good.
Its the off season and your club did something unbelievable ******ed thats great for a laugh. dont flatter yourself.

"Plastic club song for a plastic franchise club"

If the, "plastic franchise club" had not joined the 'going broke' VFL, your club would have folded - now that would have been very good to watch. A delight indeed.

Alas - we (and Brisbane) came to your rescue by paying "franchise" fees and then promptly kicking the crap out of a number of insolvent Vic clubs in our first year - actually our first victory was over the hapless Tigers - nice.

And by paying "franchise" fees we (and Brisbane) helped the VFL salvage not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, not 5, not 6, but 7 Vic clubs from being wound up.

"Mr Oakley said the clubs "had some balance sheets that were really pretty disastrous ... it was very close to disappearing as a competition"."

"Of the 11 Victorian Club companies it appears that seven of them are technically insolvent. These clubs are Fitzroy, Geelong, Footscray, Collingwood, Melbourne, North Melbourne and Richmond," he wrote on August 8, 1986."

"Victorian fans can thank Brisbane and West Coast - which joined the competition in 1987 - for effectively saving the league."


Still - all of that probably happened before your were born - no doubt!

Maybe - you could spend some time reading just a smidgeon of history instead of listening to the songs of other teams and yapping and bleating about "plastic franchise" clubs - maybe?
Ta. Being the only footy team (till freo came along) in a footy state let you become rich and fat. Thats fine, things were a bit more competitive down here.

Thanks for the history lesson though old man boomer. Irrelevant to the thread. Plastic franchise, as i said. Thanks for the cash though.

cant tell if you're 50 and a response like that is funny and witty to you or 16 and you dont know how to do any better.
Take your pick buddy, it's all good.

FWIW, Richmond is a pretty big club too. If they changed their song, I'm sure they could get at least 3 or 4 pages of discussion going.

Peace out.
