Ricardo are you the gentleman who was behind the goals who got in a minor debate with a Collingwood fan that I tapped on the shoulder and said to you don;t worry about these guys ? Crowd ws very good I thnk about 3.5 k (some have said 5 but I think thats exagerated) and the mix was about 50 50. Before anybody says I am being biassed I heard a Collingwood fan say to his mate - "Man theirs more of these guys than us" and he's mate agreed.
I agree with Ricardo some of the Collingwood fans were malakes but every club has some bad seeds. Overall well behaved crowd.
I expect vs willie the crowd will be comparable to last weekends crowd.

THE VFLS MOST SUCCESSFUL CLUB - THE MIGHTY PORT MELBOURNE BOROUGH!
I'M PORT MELBURNE BORN, I'M PORT MELBOURNE BRED, I'LL BE PORT UNTIL I'M DEAD!!!
Yes, that was me, MegaA. I honestly didn't want to go back behind the scoreboard end goals in the last quarter, but I did anyway, and once the game was lost for the Pies, they sort of seemed to turn on us flag wavers. Of course, I bit back (very silly), but it's hard not to when faced with pretty personal abuse.
Nothing more than typical banter despite the harshness of the words, though.
Yeah I didnt enjoy that end when we came in the 2nd quarter thats why we didn't go back there. Some lady was having a go at bonners and she was telling me he hadn't got a touch - once i told her he had kicked 2 goals in just over a quarter she kept quiet. Lucky we didn;t have joffa with his 100's of followers - thats all we would of needed!!!!
Good weekend with Collingwood and Essendon both getting eliminated.
Good wins by Port and Werribee.
I still think its all a bit academic as Geelong are sitting pretty with the break and only have to win two more games.
The other advantage is if they make the GF many of their players have played games at Docklands.
Port if they get through may be the only team to give them a run for their money.
One of the reasons I have disliked Collingwood marginally less than St Kilda is the nastiness of their mostly bogan supporters.
Talking about dislike - why is there such a dislike between some supporters of willie and Port. Having been a soccer fan for years and having lived in Greece for 3 month this dislike is pretty timid (whish is a good thing) but it is still there. I mean you see some supporters of willie calling us skum !!! Is it purely coz of the on field rivalry ?
Having watched the game , I was impressed with Josh Muling abd Sam Gilmore's efforts. Plenty to look forward to in 2014 and beyond.
