I’ve confessed my sins before. Also discussed my motivation for switching from North Melbourne to West Coast.I don't mind Collingwood actually, Daicos was brilliant. Wearmouth was an honest trier with cool hair (not as good as Alvin's though), Ray Shaw was one of my favourite players from any club, I supported the Pies in that GF versus West Coast.
As for your other comment, I agree with you strongly on that. In Perth in 1986, people were like "Go South Freo, East Perth suck..." 1987 it was "Go Eagles, ah, WAFL? What's that? No-one cares about that anymore." Club loyalty died in March 1987.
Well, if you still support Subi, that's totally cool as far as I'm concerned. I could never get into West Coast but obviously others could.I’ve confessed my sins before. Also discussed my motivation for switching from North Melbourne to West Coast.
Proud Western Australian who always wanted to support a local club at the highest level. Went to loads of games in the early years whilst still going to watch Subiaco as well.
I couldn’t get to North’s games and had only got to one game back in 1983.
It’s odd as I don’t really feel any affection for North anymore. The only other team I feel anything for is Adelaide as I feel they are our sister club.
Most of my friends and I are still huge fans of South and Subiaco
Fair chance Carlton have been given a handout to update Princess Park.Geelong - the original and still best drug cheats in AFL, with the most horrible and stupid home ground in AFL - taxpayer paid, where the most arrogant tosser of coach still works.
I'd be happy if the upgrade to Princes Park woudl allow for home games at Carlton - sadly it is intended to host only AFLW games and maybe VFL ( dont know) I think the maximum fans that it can handle will be 20K after a stand is knocked down. Geelong enjoy a much larger capacity ground and can host AFL games - and good luck to you for getting it done - a pity the actual ground is such an odd shape compard to most.Fair chance Carlton have been given a handout to update Princess Park.
The Victorian Government has invested $20 million in the $42 million project, with the Federal Government providing $15 million and Carlton Football Club with support from the AFL contributing the remaining funds.
