Harper copped his right wack that day as he was having ago at Cookie all day plus the reason Buster Harland broke his jaw was after he king hit Norm Brown so get your facts right redlegger as he was snipping all day in that game and he was the cause of the game having blues.Anyway payback after Port were treated badly in the 1967 grand final as we won the grand final. Go Borough!

Come on Boys, bit of light hearted humour. Dont take it so seroiusly. Dandenong were well outplayed in that Grand Final and Harps did have Brain Fade that year. Dandenong come from 4th spot to play in that final but Port were always going to win it. A lot of reports that day on both sides but Harper was not reported. (funny that). In that 67 Grand Final didn't John Peck take out the umpire. But in saying that Lyle Henriksen was reported for alegedlly hitting an umpire. Got 18 months for that while Pecky got 12 weeks. Its all history now blokes, at least we can have a laugh about it hey. Go The Leggggggers. Have a read of Phil Clearys interview with Gary Ireland on his website about the 67 grand final, a great read.

Football folklore 1967/76 GF part of a long VFA history. I went to the Port luncheon yesterday and it was great to see Freddie Cook, Gary Brice, Tony Ebeyer and Frosty Miller there. Bobby Borough and I had a good chat with Frosty Miller. By the way Ebeyer and Frosty Miller are very good mates. The good old days = a bit of biff, a few beers and repsect years down the track and talking out the old days. Sweet VFA !!!

Here here VFA, what happened on the field stayed on the field. Come on guys lets rememeber the olden days of footy as they were played. Dandenong played it hard cause they could not make it up on the skill of the Borough. Pity the Redlegs are no more. Old Cookie took a lot from us Redleg suppoters, but he was always in the old tin shed out the back after the game to talk to anyone who wanted to listen. Great sunday afternoons and nights that will never be forgotten by this Old Redleg suppoter. Go The Leggers

[quote="Redlegger"]Come on Lum, what happened on the field stayed on the field. Every game at Shepley Oval was as ferocious as they came. But afterwards the oppostion team always visted the Old Tin Shed out the back. Exept for the day Phil Cleary was escorted out of the ground by divvy van after dropping Terry Reid in front of the Grand stand. I have videos here of that 76 Grand Final and Cookie only come up with a blood lip, Harps couldn't even finish the game with a broken jaw after Harland King Hit him. As i said Gave out as much as he got. Dont give me the "Port were Angles" line either.[/quote Port over my 50+ years of watching VFA footy would have been consistantly the most vicious and dirty of all teams esp at North Port even the cops were too shitscared to do anything against their rabid supporters.I have seen some deadset mongrel acts by Port players and officials over the years ( not now that the place has become gentrified) so what happened in the 1967 and 1976 GFs against Dandenong was totally justified IMO.

Bring Back the VFA

The passion of suburban football (VFA) gave its supporters a club that had a definable identity. Each club had individual characters whose personalities help shape there club's identity and culture. From my view, the VFA gave me more value for money, it provided a friendly atmosphere, you could listen to the coaches talk at each quarter, and yes you could have a kick of the footy after the game.

Return to the pre AFL/VFL allignment era, bring back the power and passion of suburban football. AFL to have an Under 25 Grade instead of Reserves. VFL/VFA to have existing teams plus the following: Re-unite Geelong West; reform Sunshine Crows with the best players from the WRFL within their Municipality plus de-listed AFL Players; and the same for Yarraville (now Yarraville/Seddon Eagles); Re-instate Dandenong, Caulfield, Northcote, Camberwell, Mordialloc, and Moorabbin.
