I think you are under estimating the Dogs desire for a flag any flag and it dosent matter that the AFL team is not playing in fact it gives Footscray more players to choose from.
The support I thought was 80 per cent Port 20 Sandy. I don't think its a monumental task to beat Footscray. I know they have the luxury of the week off however I think - no I dont think - I know we can beat them and are in with a good home ground chance.
Lets hope the Footscray fans turn out in numbers and we actually get a decent crowd for once.
It might be one of the last three games on ABC TV as well.The VFAs involvement with the ABC goes right back to 1957 and Im pretty certain the first game was Oakleigh v Preston I think they only did half the match in those days.
Not really underestimating them at all. Seen them flog Port earlier in the year and also seen them win last week against the seagulls. Dogs won the VFL flag in 1954 plus a few night flags at the Lakeside Oval. Cupboard for the tricolours is pretty bare.
Port have been there done that and reckon Port can get over the line in front of their home ground. If it is a real hard slog then it will be the borough that can sneak home.
The talls in Ayce Cordy, Jack Redpath and especially Liam Jones will be the dangers. The borough would have done some homework in their loss to Box Hill. The week off for the dogs might be a hindrance ? Time will tell Billy.
Looking forward to being there for this week's Port v Sandy semi-final.
Also look forward to the other finals match with North Balla.... oh, that's right ;)
Looking forward to this weeks Grand Final between Box Hill & Port Melbourne. Oh.... that's right.. what a silly mistake.
Breaky never lead with your chin.
Smart arse comments have a habit of coming back & biting you on the bum.
Apologies to the true Port faithful !!!
We might be from the bush. but we ain't green
You would think from the comments on here that the biggest rivalry is Port vs Ballarat rather than Willy.
37 times Grand finalists
16 times premiers
21 times runners up - THE MIGHTY BOROUGH!
I'M PORT MELBURNE BORN,
I'M PORT MELBOURNE BRED,
I'LL BE PORT UNTIL I'M DEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That's more fuel for the fire there!
Should that be NORTH Ballarat Mega ??
No rivalry but a lot of respect & will take to task any crap comments especially from those five minute turncoats who will jump on any bandwagon to enhance their egos.
You wouldn't want to be in the trenches with them.
