They are pretty proud of their 2018 Preliminaryship, though.He's still one bloke I think about quite often after his "better list" comment from years ago and how he must wince in sheer agony every time he see's the Tiges win another big game.
Had "his day" in the '18 Prelim and thats as good as he'll ever see in his career and how that Granny ended was absolute perfection, now it seems his main duty is whether to head to the Gold Coast and support the Missus Netball career, even though he's scoffed at the rumour, sounds like the Mighty $ is his main aim and not about Premierships as he'd like everybody to believe.
He must've had more intervention at half time as he came out a different player.Good call for the early part of the game... couldn't bend over, loosened up fortunately later,
Favorite saying in Tasmania, behave yourself or you'll end up in New Norfolk.Actually Jase. Thinking about these comments from earlier in the day an reminiscing about that era. Most leagues have an equivalent side (or couple of sides). Obviously Victoria’s was Collingwood and terrifying away matches at Victoria Park (apparently the animal cage at Moorabbin wasn’t too god for visiting fans either).
In Hobart, our equivalent was New Norfolk. They were the only country team playing in the TFL. My analogy of their support base would be like taking a Port bogan, then enhance them by breeding a bit of gun toting Alabama hick into him/her, then cross breed some more with the patients at the local mental asylum (yes this actually happened, with Tasmania’s only mental asylum of the time located in the town as one of its major industries and employers). You get a whole new sub-breed of super-bogan.
Away matches at Boyer Oval (New Norfolk’s home ground) were not enjoyable affairs. The scenes in the outer were rather Dickensian.
New Norfolk were often a dirty team on the field, but it was probably a safer environment on the field than being in the crowd up there, given one felt surrounded by these hillbilly incarnations of Orcs from Lord of The Rings. Not uncommon to see brawls in the wet area or the crowd in the main grandstand trying to start fights with the away team bench and entourage in front of them.
Visiting fans would hide their colours for the walk back to the car after the game.
The only difference was that New Norfolk didn’t have the success of the likes of Port and Collingwood, so you wouldn’t get that same of arrogant streak. That said, their home record was pretty good because it was such a hostile environment. The facilities were far more agricultural too, given they were a country side playing in a city comp, which added to the hostility. And the upper Derwent Valley is often a few degrees cooler than Hobart, damp, miserable and foggy (fog lifts at noon and rolls back in at 3pm) during the depths of winter.
It's a disgrace.And the Port ferals who hung around the race to hurl abuse at the RFC players as they went down to the rooms after the game. And the boos as they headed off the ground also. Not that I haven’t seen that before. But it isn’t overly common from my observations these days. Unless a player from the winning side has done something unforgivable like king hit a home player during the match. Generally the Football follower of today is a bit more gracious than that. Usually they simply shut up and leave to either quietly seethe or simply drown their sorrows. Just bizarre.
And South Australians love to lecture the rest of the country how they are the only State not founded by convicts, as if that means the populace is more refined.
Thought Hinkley was all class until the deliberate OOB came up. You could see he didn't like it, but they got way more of those than we did, and that was clear. Even all the commentators agreed that he disguised it awfully as it was clear he was just trying to put it OOB. Isn't that exactly what the rule was brought in for.
True. I posted this earlier: https://www.puntroadend.com/threads/gameday-pf-2020-port-v-rich.56221/page-45#post-2521146

Back in 2002 or 2003 I believe it was. Port were minor Premiers and red hot favourites for the flag.It's a disgrace.
The media needs to take some responsibility here portraying us as dirty cheating bad guys all year and Lynch as a villain. Just takes a bunch of empty headed bogans and it can easily get out of hand.
And SA did import a disproportionately large contingent of low budget ‘chavs’ and ‘neds’ from the Council Estates of England and Scotland respectively during the post war era (‘chavs’ being England’s equivalent of bogans, ‘neds’ being Scotland’s). So I suppose it stands to reason they just intermingled and interbred with the local equivalent species. And the resultant subspecies is what was on display last night.Correct, it wasn't founded by convicts. It was founded by losers, too stupid to figure out how to steal a loaf of bread.
Very very impressed that you got that LTRTR (you sneaky Icehole) ....................... I spent over 14 years on a couple of Forums for the American Football team I followed and to get by the language filters, we started up our very own dictionary of words that were based on Johnny Dangerously, it become a cult sensation in no time at all and attracted hundreds of thousands of posts over those years, until it was finally closed down after 10 aptly named threads and many many fun discussions.Character out of Johnny Dangerously.
I'm pretty sure its something he picked up on his last Rabbitting outing with a couple of his bogan mates, they ate the meat and didn't want to waste the pelts, so there you have it.What the hell was that thing on Byrne-Jones cranium? Looks like the barber shop caught fire and he had to rush out half way through the appointment.
Well of course they booed that one. Thought it was a line ball call - Jack clearly threw his head at the Port players arm, then needlessly threw himself on the ground trying to milk a free. Port fans are delusional.The bogan booing every free kick against them was unbelievable. I get how frees can be a matter of interpretation and you can argue whether they are there or not. But the free kick to Jack in the first quarter when he was smacked in the head was patently obvious. The bogans booed that
