Seems to me Collingwood supporters (in general) have become complacent. The only time anything of note happened is when members left in droves prior to the game finishing.

Very poor crowd at the weekend and out cheered by Port Power.

cobood raises a good point about mobile gamers rather than cheer squad chanters.
CS membership is a privilege with a purpose. Want to play on your mobile - CS membership not renewed.
Front row - point post to point post - floggers only.
Rows behind - flags, patties, ditch the tacky signs (Brazilian Harry, etc).

Yes, there are a lot of 'good people' in the CS, but it's all about performance.
So - to 'the Vein'. Sorry mate, but there's more to it than constant abuse and brain fades. Players hate Heath Shaw doing it. Supporters hate you doing it too.
Joffa - does a lot of work for the homeless and charity outside of the ground. Keep doing it, but your best CS work isn't obvious. Like Dids, after many years of service you've got to go.

In any event, IMO, if you're over 25, go up the back and become part of the tradition of 'retired' CS members. They make lots of noise too.

Bucks wants a culture change. The CS has gone backward rather than forward. New blood with new enthusiasm, new wider seating, new black and white everything. Gold has had it's day. Seedsman's yellow boots to get the boot. The Game Over jacket is over. It's black, it's white or it's gone.

Find photos of the best ever cheer squads and model them. There were some great CSquads in Sth Aust pre-AFL. North Melb of the late 70s early 80s was huge. Don't copy the current rabble of other clubs. Maximise everything. Biggest floggers, best flags, sensational run-throughs (change the font, include pictures), helium balloons, jumpers / badges / coats.

So for all those who are over 25, thanks, but it's time to go. Give someone else a turn. Thousands of Collingwood supporters proudly say they are ex-CS - join them.

Just an embarrassment now. Signs like "Give me a Brazilian Harry" are cringe worthy.

And then you have the attention seeking fool who hangs over the fence each week abusing the whole world. Ch 7 have dedicated him his own camera just so they can keep up the stereotype of Collingwood supporters being dim witted nut jobs.


That person you talk about is not the only person who goes off when there's a bad call! He never asked to be shown! He he more of a supporter than you will ever be! You seem to be a bandwagon supporter!!

Just saw that the Club is going to make the Banners this year, is the club trying to kill off the squad.

Unfortunately it's true according to a friend of mine who's a part of the CS!

Yeah, a bandwagon supporter who has gone to almost every match in Melbourne since 1987.

I wouldn't question your bro's passion as a Collingwood supporter but his endless tirade of abuse directed at the goal umpires does nothing but embarrass the club and has made him the Ch7 'go-to' man for 'Embarrassing Collingwood Feral'.

Move on. Leave it to the youth.
