Pretty sure I asked for Chief to do it as a trade off when the Saltmine got shut down.this change didn't come as a request via us, it was just meant to be a short term joke from admin I think, but once they saw how salty oppo posters got when it kept changing admin just left it there for laughs.
Awesome!Not really a story of how i became a supporter but a good tiger story nevertheless so thought id share.
Think it was around 2010 we hadn’t one a game that year my old man decided to take me on my first road trip as a kid to adelaide.
Think we went across on the friday and were looking for a place to eat in shitty hindley street that night. We were walking down the street and eventually bumped into some of the tiger boys getting a feed on a table outside.
My dad immediately stopped and said boys we’ve come across to watch you tomorrow. And anyway jack said to us well we better have a win for you.
We rock up the next day to football park and it poured down rain. My dad somehow managed to pick seats right near the port members seating. Both of us are very vocal at the footy and as you can imagine it didnt sit well with those ferals.
As the day went on somehow the luckless tigers went on to win that slog of a game. Im pretty sure it was hardwicks first win as coach.
As the siren went we ran down to the fence and were the only tigers fans really in the area. Jack spotted us and ran over giving me a signed ball and when he got closer he remembered we were the fans from last night.
Giving us a hug he said ‘i told you we’d have a win’
Something small but a great memory for me personally!
2007. My ex barracks for Geelong and are on top of the ladder and of course this was a year we finished bottom. My middle cherub son announces that he will now barrack for Geelong. I just said, " not if you ever want to eat again you won't." As he was living with me I think he thought better of it.That Telstra ad really annoys me. If that were my kid running off with Grandpa Simpson to cheer on the Swans, I’d never let her back in the house.
See, good parenting. Australia thanks you for this. He will too.2007. My ex barracks for Geelong and are on top of the ladder and of course this was a year we finished bottom.
