Can you imagine a Rooster jumper with a Kangaroo spread across the front. NEVER[/quote]

I can. Just give it time.

You guys have moved so far from your stand a few years ago, anything is possible now.

Too much common sense Dolphin - stop it...

Every year the VFL of old dies. As it dies the reliance on AFL clubs for financial support increases. The more the AFL clubs contribute (the league as well for that matter) naturally the more influence they get. They want a return for their money and brand extension is an obvious avenue.

If people don't like it then ring Peter Schwab and tell him where else AFLV and the clubs can source the money from.

Unfortunatly AFL influence is a reality and I for one see no way of winding the clock back to the days of old.

Also, hawthorn have had a couple of spots on the box hill board since the alignment started (I think that coburg is the only other club to let that happen) so really an increased hawks presence is hardly a suprise.

Listen Flipper, If your mob want to live in the past so be it...
Don't get the irits because no one loves you.
If by any stretch the kangaroo is worn by the Roosters, your team will be well & truly gone to the old VFA graveyard.
As I said NEVER. NEVER. NEVER.
Do you understand that???

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

Oh course I understand what you said. It was English, and I have a pretty good grip on the language. Doesn't make it right.

But where you are right is that what is left of my club is absolutley living in the past. And your right, thats why they wont exist.

I wasn't talking about Frankston, I was talking about your comment. Why you always insist on trying to tie some bizarre link to other unrelated matters to your comments is beyond me.

Flipper,
All I did was to have an opinion on the Box Hill alternate strip, so if people are not allowed to have an opion that dosen't agree with yours well we might just as well leave it all up to you.
Cheers...

Yuk.

A tiny white horse is all that remains of Box Hill FC.

I agree it should be renamed Eastern Hawks or something else even more blatantly promoting Hawthorn and the AFL.

As the former Box Hill jumper did not clash with any other VFL club jumper, why is there a "need" for an alternate strip?

It is sure to drive away more of the remaining few Mustang supporters, as it no longer has any representation of Box Hill as a local Senior football club.

Nah,

What you said was this..

Mustang,
You can floss it up all you like, but the fact is that you are being dictated to by the might of Hawthorn.
It's time that the VFL clubs took a stand against these AFL clubs & stop getting pushed around in order to survive . Surely the aligned clubs need to maintain & drive a bit of their past tradition & history.

..and then you said this..

Mustang,
Could not agree more about the Roosters once a year strip, but it is not the bloody jumper. It's what going on when an AFL club can dictate to a great club like Box Hill when & what it will wear. Get some balls & stand up to them.

Now thats not simply a comment on a jumper. You attacked club that is doing alkl they can do to survive.

Now your club made a drastic change to its philosophy, but you tend to ingore histopry and just stay in the moment. Thats fine, but just remember not everybody forgets history the way you guys do.

However, you did say one sensible thing...
