This thread would be so much more interesting, and probably with some very different opinions, if Norwood had joined the AFL instead of Port and wanted to wear their original jumper.

I would have the same advice  tell them to take a jump off the nearest pier.

Is it really going to affect collingwood if port wear it in the showdown games? I mean it isn't like they want to wear it against collingwood. Go Kochie.

I thought the Prison Bars looked excellent last Saturday, as long as they stay in South Australia. 

Nah, I think they should just wear it whenever they want.  In fact, the next time Port plays Collingwood in Victoria, I think they should run out onto the ground in their prison bars jumper, just to make Eddie have a brain hemerage.

I signed. I find it hard to split Kochie and Eddie though, more interested in perpetuating generational hate with Collingwood, as I have noticed some personal back sliding (an admiration for Buckley and Grundy/Pendlebury (he played basketball you know?)).

Hi,

Yes every home team should be able to wear whatever they want as home team. They should be able to dress as flamingos if they want.

Every team should also be able to wear whatever they want as away team - as long as they dont clash with the home team.

Simple really

That would be highly entertaining to observe. Eddie and Kochie, 2 absolute ego driven wankers going toe to toe

Port Adelaide look fabulous “behind bars” it’s their rightful place :)

I'd have zero problems with Norwood joining and playing in a blue jumper with red V as it would align perfectly with my story of becoming a MFC supporter in the first place.  My grandmother's family saw the light and migrated from Adelaide to Melbourne during the great depression and following Norwood in the SANFL, naturally migrated their allegiance over the mighty MFC.  A very wise move considering the successful era the club had during the 50s and 60s.

If Norwood were to have joined the comp instead od say the Crows wanted to wear the red and blue, I would have been all for it, adopted them as a second team and would have actually celebrated a flag in my lifetime!

I've signed it because it would drive the Pies faithful mad and make Eddie spit chips. 

But having said that, they entered the competition with a team that was already wearing black and white stripes that felt strongly it was linked to their identity, so they sought to protect it. Port signed a contract saying that they wouldn't wear the prison bars strip, those were the terms they accepted.

I can tell you right now if they wore red yolk and navy blue in their SANFL days, agreed to the terms they have with the Pies and then decided "actually no we're going to do this instead" I'd be unhappy about it.

 A side note to add though, it wouldn't be the first professional sporting league in the world to have two clubs with similar strips. They're unique in their own way so for me it doesn't make a huge difference.

Personally couldn't give a toss about the jumper issue but from a contractual perspective, I can see McGuire's point. I also reckon that Kochie forgets it was Port Power admitted to the AFL, not Port Magpies.

On the issue of the footballs though, I'm surprised to find myself in full agreement with Eddie

incorrect

the port adelaide football club - known as the magpies in the sanfl - had their license transferred to the afl

there they adopted a new nickname, the power, so that they didn't clash with the pre-existing magpies

the pamfc was formed essentially by the sanfl so that the magpies remained a local team in the domestic competition, based out of a completely different locale and training set-up to the actual pafc

the one club initiative - led by brett duncanson and mark haysman, with a lot of former players in support and vital for media relations as much as anything - rejoined the two clubs as one, back to the pafc, where they remained the power in the afl and the magpies in the sanfl

they're a true football club, not some godforsaken franchise

No they didn't. They won a tender against joint ventures from other SANFL clubs. The licence became available because Fitzroy merged with Brisbane

Agree on the true football club bit

So Eddie says port signed a contract.  Honestly what choice did they have, if they wanted to enter the AFL there was no choice.    This is a fair and reasonable request, to wear it in showdowns.  Eddy himself said he’s never turned down a request for port to wear it in the past 

And Port say nope....

"To avoid any confusion, let me present some facts to you.

At no stage did the current Board of the Port Adelaide Football Club sign a “once and done” agreement with the AFL to enable us to wear our black-and-white Prison Bar guernsey in our 150th year. FACT.

In fact, the Collingwood Football Club were prepared for Port Adelaide to wear this guernsey in both 2020 Showdowns, on the condition that we would sign off on it being the last time and no more. FACT.

Subsequently, we refused to sign off on anything preventing us from wearing this guernsey beyond 2020 with “the parties agreeing to defer further consideration of that issue to a later point in time.” FACT.

Therefore, we are doing exactly what was agreed, picking up the conversation to be able to wear the black-and-white Prison Bar guernsey in Showdowns ongoing.

And we are not asking to be the Magpies in the AFL. FACT.

All we are asking is that we are able to wear our black-and-white Prison Bar guernsey in all Showdowns moving forward"

Interesting use of the wording “current board”.  

I have no doubt that Collingwood has signed agreements, handshakes and verbal agreements with “previous boards”.

Elliot? Bond at Richmond? McAlister (probably 90s)? but yeah point taken

Yeah I think from the 90's is when they took prominence, and the vehicle was often the footy show on 9. They couldn't show footy so they sort other ways to get info content and presidents started to appear on there.  And thats even before Eddie took over the pies.

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees.

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi
