footy clubs that have rev up audio after a goal
+ dance cam shit at quarter breaks 

Personal favorite of mine is a very poor quality Lion's Roar sound played over the old PA system at Piranha Park whenever Coburg kick a goal.

While we're talking road spastics: Had an indian bloke tbone my gf's car the other day. We were driving along bell street and the bloke came out of a stop sign and ran straight into the side of us. He claims it was somehow our fault and tries to intimidate the missus. I tell him he's telling fibs because be probably doesn't have insurance. This is later confirmed. Cops and insurance company obvs back us. Now the cunt has to pay for $6k+ in damages that he almost definitely can't afford as he was driving some rusty 1992 Toyota (that he'll also have to fix) and was wearing a coles uniform. Bloke had the nerve to ring me the next day and say that he'll get the car fixed up, just as long as we leave it to him and don't go through the insurance company. I'm glad his life is probably ruined. Get insurance next time cunt.

I had an 18 year old rear end me and thought he could get it sorted by buying a bumper off ebay for $90 without paint application and thought he would be all sweet (and for me to attach and paint myself) fucking dweeb cunt

They also had an announcer telling PPL that could have a photo with that idiot Cat Man at HT.

Then you get metal detected every break when you go for a smoke by Security, get told to watch yourself when you call the umpire a "mug"...  I am starting think attending AFL is just not worth bothering with anymore.

If the AFL had not fucked up the VFA so badly, I honestly think droves would have returned back to a league where a Supporter can actually support their team as a free man.

However, they did fuck up the VFA and in five years time I probably won't have Port Melbourne (Finance Problems due to the reduction of Pokies Profits) or a WAFL side in East Freo (The WA Commission wants to merge us with South despite that easily being the biggest WAFL match).

And so I will be left watching an Umpire who will not pay holding the ball for entire afternoon in a Football Equivalent of North Korea if I want to attend a match in Melbourne.

What's going on with the Borough mate? Quite confusing.

The reason Port has been able to be competitive with the AFL Reserve sides in recent years is because they receive a higher Salary Cap which meant the club was able to pay Ex AFL Players through the Club's profits from the Pokies Machines it owned. 

There are a number of factors why... but basically we now are getting a fourth of the profits we did two years ago which means we could go the way of the other Stand Alone Clubs with no Pokies Money like Frankston etc etc.

And yes for the record I hate Pokies... however its hard to be Anti Pokies if it means the end of your Football Club from Birth.

We have won two out of two against pretty crappy opponents... but a lot of our better players are taking reduced wages out of love of the club (One even came out of VFL retirement) - So its not a sustainable model.

Pretty much exactly how I feel about AFL nowadays.

Like you say, the VFL/VFA also isn't in the best state at the moment, especially for those who support standalone teams, but personally I get considerably more enjoyment out of going to watch Collingwood play at Victoria Park in the VFL than I do watching them at the G in the AFL. The AFL product is just so watered down and Americanised now, not to mention the PC police that are ready to jump on anyone who shows any passion in the stands.

I have been pretty slack at getting to Port games now that I don't live there so I am probably part of the problem. But it is incredibly sad watching the last of the VFL's independent clubs being strangled out.

TBH I have been saying for over five years now we should leave with what we still have and try join a Local Semi-Pro League even if its in another region of Melbourne because we would be playing Real Clubs and be able to remain at a much higher level than if we keep trying to play catch up in the VFL.

At this rate we will push it to breaking point and eventually end dead and then later on as as a Amatuer Club like Prahan or Brunswick (Or even Fitzroy) being beaten by Tories playing for their school sides plus you cant even bloody drink at VAFL games.

When the on-field Performance starts to diminish that's definitely the only option, the issue now is that we're still competitive enough to justify remaining in the league.

Kitchen is bad enough if your floor isn't that big... a year or so ago at my office this bloke would fry up a stinky tuna toastie every day at 2PM until there were eventually so many complaints that he got deservedly banned from doing so because he was fucking the office up for the rest of the day.

*add to that- Wearing a City cap at a Tards game. The whole back row north terrace or whatever they are called launched into a "There's only one team in Melbourne" chant when they saw me.

Deserved it in my opinion. 

I'll never understand why people feel the need to wear their team's gear when they go to a neutral game.

It was more to piss off the Victory mates I was going with TBH.

Nonetheless, it amused me to have 400 of them chanting at me!

Or the lowest of lows: a NHL Jersey/Cap (For a team from a place you have no real connection with) to watch a Livestream of a NHL game at a Pub at 11am on a Sunday... :facepalm:

Most likely coupled with a Raspberry Flavoured Vape Device for HT.

Can confirm I have been to more Minnesota Wild games in person than livestreams (ie 1). Also, I own neither a cap nor a jersey ;)

And hey, at least I've actually been there, more than you can probably say for the hoards of Blackhawks fans you get down here.

The worst is the amount of Vancouver shit...

I lived over there in 1990 and it was only when I came to my school that there was as many Canucks fans as Montreal fans out of the boys in my class when I decided to support the local team (Prior to that it was 6 to 5).

I stuck with the side when I came home the only way I could in the early 90's which consisted of my looking up dated sports results in the Herald where we constantly always trailed Colorado in the Standings and then threw away a Stanley Cup despite having Pavel Bure... this being around the same time I also got to see Geelong and NUFC being consistent Bridesmaids. My father even got some family friends in Vancouver to send me a Black Canucks Cap and Pendant.

Now I have to see PPL everywhere wearing these shitty Green and Blue Orca Canuck Crap acting like lifelong fans who I pretty sure they never supported the team when they wore Black or threw away a Stanley Cup.

Then there is the fact that the worst thing about Vancouver in 1990 was when I saw a Orca in bloody captivity so I dont know why PPL want to wear something that reminds them of probably the most Un-PC thing (Which in turns translates to "Un-Vancouver-like thing" or most "Un-Canadian thing") to happen in that place in a very long time.

And also Canuck literally means Canadian..

TTIM: The ripped jeans trend.

Never understood why people pay full price for half a pair of jeans.

It seems like an expensive way to look like a hobo.

Netflix in general is being controlled by some SJW these days as shown by a lot of the new programs being made...

Even my wife who is apolitical but still more to the pinko side of the spectrum than myself rolled her eyes when she saw the new addition called: Dear White People.

So true...

It's a load crap, I mean even when I did vote Liberal for year it did not mean all the Novels in particular  (I read a lot due to Insomnia), plus Movies, TV Programs and a lot of the Musicians I listened to are obviously more likely to be Pinkos than anything else. It is something you just accept from the Arts.

I kinda feel that even though it's still more watchable than most shows that they should have kept it shorter like the Original Series.

I know lol, that's what I was thinking, unexpected bonanza. I actually don't care about the bud, have had a Q since like new year and probably hadn't even smoked half, probably stale and I won't be replacing it anyway. They can have it. 

More triggered about my darts and them spilling my drink everywhere and not knowing if I had anything else in there worth taking.
