When I was a kid Dad said I could barrack for whoever I wanted but if I wanted to sleep inside and eat at the dinner table I better choose Melbourne.

I was gracious enough to give my kids the same choice.

Crows started when I was 6 - too young to understand how it all came about but old enough to have already had that parochial SA vs VIC mentality horseshit chip on our shoulder thing and an SA team being in the 'big league' meant they were always going to be my team

Don't reeeally remember too much SANFL before that but I was Norwood because of my grandfather and we ganged up on Dad who was Port -

By the time I was old enough to realise I was a class traitor by picking Norwood and I should have been Centrals or (puke) Port , it was too late - and by the time I realised if 'footy justice' existed the Crows shouldn't really exist, it was also too late

It is what it is
