Very little change at Port since then NorthPort !
Sorry mate I just couldn't help myself.
Ahh yes Digs! Hey we have some new holes drilled in the ground for lights, but I am somewhat inclined to agree with you!
* It's time to restore the VFA name.
There were quite a few clubs that didn't want to allow Port (and North Melbourne) into the VFL because of the crowd 'behaviour' at their respective home ground(s). South's motive may have been different. One of the breakaway clubs put forward a proposal prior to 1896 to merge a lot of the neighbouring clubs such as Port and South, St Kilda and Prahran, Preston and Northcote , etc. as a solution to the excessive number of clubs in the VFA which was one of the many reasons that led to the formation of the VFL. This proposal obviously never got off the ground.
The AFL side wears the red vee in Melbourne games, no reason why their VFL side couldn't VFA, they could even be called South Melbourne just like the Bulldogs VFL side is called Footscray - some players who appeared for both South and Port off the top of my head - Bobby Skilton (the greatest of them all!), Peter Bedford, Frank Johnson, Bernie Evans, Stephen Allender, Norm Goss, Tony Haenan, Gary Brice, Mark Whitzell, Bruce Davis - I'm sure there would be many more
good get George, BOG round 1 1975 v North Melbourme, the previous year's runner-up in a huge upset win for the Swans
Kevin Goss was another
I have just turned off the St Kilda seconds match at the MCG after 10 seconds and as usual St Kilda has gotten their way and the former Sandringham FC is playing in a bastard St Kilda Jumper maybe it is time that Sandringham FC were put out of the misery and a full take over by St Kilda happens and their seconds play Moorabbin and let East Sandy Boys Club play at The Beach Road Oval at least they would be authentic and at home!.
Sorry double post the first post took a very long time to load.
I have just turned the tv on. Noticed Stkilda jumpers and have tuned it off. I'm with you Billy. Sandy should get rid of st Kilda once and for all and go alone.
