I've said it for the past 3 weeks, but this is it for Port.

A fair chance that the Borough will go down again on Channel 7s coverage this week. We just haven't had enough avenues to goal and won enough of the ball out of the centre.

It's going to be a tough gig for Sam Gilmore in the ruck against a ruck veteran in Will Minson.

Pruden, Webb, Goodes, Minson, Jong and Pearce are a good midfield and will give Batsanis, Wooffindin, Tom O'Sullivan, Gilmore, Pinwill and Cain a ton of trouble..

With Jordon Roughead into the side for Footscray, it's going to be tough going for Lisle and Haretuku.

NorthPort,
It's never over till it's over. Where there's life there's hope. !!
Great to see you hanging in there unlike the rest of the Port front runners. They have all jumped off the bandwagon very quickly. To think we used to get a dozen posts a day in the glory days now lucky to get two a week.
Hard to get a debate from anyone now.

Couldn't see Port dropping this one Digs. Nothing better than an upset on national television.

Digs they are still supporters but they choose not to post as they are tired of all the stirring and anti port sentiment coming from other posters on the page.

Port's facebook pages are alive and well, with several supporter boards with dozens and dozens of regular posters. It's hard to entice them over to a website where its not all Port!

Digs it is not crap when I have spoken to the posters personally and all of them have stated the same reason. Nobody has gone off using social media to express their opinions on the club, what they have gone off is this page as they are tired of the piss taking. For example one thread this week on one of the supporter pages had over 250 posts.

Nothing to do with the fact that Port have dropped off a little ??

No doubt that would be a factor but not the main one. After we win the next 3 games and play finals at northport they will be back along with another 10k port supporters, selling out the ground by mid week.
