Except for the fact they suck.

Anwyay, the Colingwood thing is such a massive hyperbole. How many feral fans of theirs have you actually met? Sure, there's more than other clubs, but it's mainly the idiots who sit behind the goals.

And Buckley was massively overrated.

I went to the grand final in 2003, Brisbane vs Collingwood. Never saw such a bunch of sore, ungraceful losers in my life. I was sitting beside this sour wanker who pretty much ruined Collingwood for me for good.

Though clearly I was not in the same section as b_m2002, who I know was also there and I'm sure had much more dignity.

But hang on a second. There's a line between passion and indignity. I BAWLED my eyes out for about 20 minutes after we went down to Brisbane in the prelim in 04, then Sydney in the semi in 06. They were painful. I can fully understand that because the Pies made the grand final, and were beaten by under two kicks. They have every right to be upset. And Rocca got jibbed, his shot should have been a goal.

It's one thing to have passion. It's another thing entirely to sit there either in a grumpy silence with your arms crossed or to open your mouth only to heckle the opposition, and then to leave at three quarter time, intentionally pushing past Lions fans as you go.

Actually, in my experience with Collingwood fans, it's not necessarily a case of mere ferality. It's more a case of most of them being ignorant, arrogant and difficult to have a proper conversation with.

And you had seats!

Well....I left at the start of the Last quarter. I'd seen enough, Dad and I had paid a truckload to stand up and see about 1/4 of the whole game..... From the First Bounce (and What I Could see from a packed standing room in the new Ponsford Stand).....I was wondering why Collingwood were even the favorites for this game? This Brisbane side was a class act, and should have been favorites...just on fact they had won the last 2 Grannies. We were lucky to beat 'em in the Qualifying Final that year!

See, this is why you're the exception that proves the rule. Other Collingwood fans I've met seem to love bitching about how Collingwood "should" have won ... well, pretty much every final in history, it seems.

Argh, I haven't been keeping tabs on any footy related stories lately. Not even much on the Carey thing.

Though I saw Ben Cousins training at Glenelg about a month ago.

I just think its hyperbole. It's a stereotype. Don't get me wrong, I love to get in on it, but I have a tonne of mates who are Collingwood fans and they are some of the best people you'll meet. Some of them get embarrased at the actions of others. They are not, inte, as you seemed to imply, a lower race, as much as we all like to pretend they are.

Bonnie that is very interesting. Nice pick up! How do you think your Weagles will go this year?

Hopefully top four, really - that's all I can say. I don't think it's unrealistic at all, all the controversy's gone, our two best players and some other greats, sure - but I think this'll just make the more secondary stars shine even more.

I'm almost 100% sure it was Cuz, looked just like him - same build, face etc.

I'm not sure how interested I'm going to be in the AFL this year.

I've sorta said that every year, but THIS YEAR! We'll see what happens. I think Channel 7 killed last season for me, with their shite coverage. And they have the Grand Final this year

If I can get to a few games this year, it'll be much better. I only made it to two games last season (RD 12 or so against St.Kilda and The Prelim against the Cats.)

See, you just need to get into rugby. The All Blacks.

Yes, I'll show myself out.

Yeah, I still think you'll be up there as well, as you say it will let a few other players into the spotlight, and you've got a wealth of them, like Nicoski, Embley, Glass, Priddis... Any word on Kerr? Having a good pre-season?

Keep us posted about Cuz as well.... see he did the anti-drug thing with Mundine the other day, I was really pleased he did, and he seemed very down to earth throughout the whole interview. But a reporter stumped Mundine, he said to him "Do you think it's a case of one rule for normal people and another for celebrities?" To which he replied "nah brah" And then the reporter said "Well he'd be in jail." Mundine had nothing.
