Northern Blues

Preston. The Bullants, Northern Bullants and potentially the Northern Blues.

How many identity changes can a club make within the last 10 years or so?
Preston was a successful and iconic club within the old VFA, yet take a look at things now.

If the Bullants have to 'sell-out' to Carlton, their aligned partner, to change their red and white jumper, to something more like a Carlton jumper, does that spell the end for all that has anything remotely connected to 'Preston?'

Even if the Bullants are doing it to stay in the VFL for financial reasons so as not to fold, it looks like a total loss of the clubs identity to me.

When Williamstown were aligned with Collingwood, their theme song was changed to follow the tune of Collingwood's one. They kept their blue and yellow jumper, but lost the song, WTF?

If the Northern Blues are formed within the next year or so, opposition supporters will no doubt remind their supporters and players of how 'Blue' their trip home, to the 'Northern' suburbs will be following a loss. No doubt the opposition supporters will also have a dig at them for selling out too.

It will be a disgrace if Preston change their colours and name.
Sold to the devil.

It would be one big BLUE if that was to happen.
The Bullants supporters should chain their president to a post at the Preston market & publicy flog him. !

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green

The Preston president should be left in a dark alley to confront Johnny Bourke, Brett Cooper and a fired up Peter Weightman.
The Northern Blues is one of the worst ever suggestions in the history of the VFA dating back to 1877. The Preston President is the biggest tool and a closet Carlton TURD !!!

Bring back Preston BULLANTS and play ALL home games at Cramer Street.
The club should never ever wear anything else rather than the traditional RED and WHITE !!!!!!

Carlton and the filth can have home and away ganmes between each other at Saudi Arabia for I care.

Hate 'em, but agree. I like the Bullant rather than the PFC on the jumper.

That would be the President that has dragged the club out of the shit.

If Preston dump Carlton they will cease to exist within 2 years. Then where will all the history be?

In any event, the comments in this thread are way out of line and I am staggered that NorthPort has let them continue. I count at least 3 suggestions of violence toward an in individual.

Yep time to close this thread down.. I probably would have done sooner, but am without my normal internet access at the moment. So am playing catchup.

CLOSED!
