Post subject: THE LOUDEST ROARReply with quote

After Magpie Gregs brilliant piece on Tuddy's return to Vic Park on QB weekend 1972 I noticed Greg mention that roars of the Vic Park partizan crowd in the third quarter were the loadest he had ever heard until Starcevich kicked 2 in a minute to sink Carlton off his own boot in 1988.

I want posters here to recall the loudest roar they ever heard at a Collingwood game.

For me the loudest roars I ever remember (aside from the those that greeted Starcas heroics) are as follows:

# After Ross Brewers goal to put us 2 points in front of Fitzroy in the 2nd Semi Final at the MCG 1981. The atmosphere was electric when that kick went through.

# After the mercurial Daicos handballed over Ian Nankervis and sprinted clear to drill the goal to put us in front of Geelong in time on of the preliminary final 1981. It was sheer pandemonium

# After Chocco Williams desperate smother and follow up soccer goal from a tight angle while being pelted by Carlton fans to put us 21 points in front of The Blues during time on of the 3rd quarter of the 1981 Grand Final. There was madness all around.

# After Daicos angle goal in the first quarter of the 1990 Grand Final. The best ice breaking goal I have ever seen in a Grand Final. It was a wall of sound that greated the result.

# After Doug Barwicks snap at the 19 minute mark of the last quarter of the 1990 Grand Final that sent fans into delirium.

# After Micky McGuanes 7 bounce goal at the MCG 1994. The crowd went nuts.

# However, the biggest roar I have ever heard per capita was after Daicos "impossible goal" against the Eagles at Waverley (QF 1990). The roar caused a seismic tremor that registered on the Richter scale. An amazing goal and amazing response. A day when 47,000 sounded like 150,000. Even Jericho had seen nothing like it.

What do you guys think?

When Didak put through that goal in the last quarter of the Prelim 2002. That was the loudest noise I've ever heard at the footy.

Buck's goal from outside 50 on the boundary rebounding a kick in in the 3rd quater of the 2002 GF. Right in front of the southern stand (where i was sitting at the time) never heard anything like it.

In America, Fox sport have a sound device that acurately measures the decibels made by the crowd. I think the pittsburg steelers are the loudest! there's another stadium called the house of pain, perhaps channel 10,fox & 9 could use this devise to run a club comp, who can get the loudest roar at a game.
Hope eddie reads this, I reckon pie fans would be up there! Wink

Daics snapping the inside-out-banana-impossible goal late in the last quarter vs the weagles (drawn final), to put us 8 points up. Certainly the loudest longest most gutteral scream I've ever let out!. The noise of that moment was only matched by the silence at the final siren as we all tried to work out what the result would mean... (and secretly realised we had just dodged the bullet that would have been another heartbreaking finals loss). The rest is history.

The roar when Josh Fraser took that mark and then converted in the last quarter of the 2002 GF. You could see on the lions player's faces - they were scared! Twisted Evil

A can't beleive no-one has mentioned the noise we made at TD vs Brisbane 2002. That had the best COLLLIIINNNGGGWWWOOODDD chant so far.

GO PIES!

Yes that was a ROAR!!
I was surrounded by Crows supporters in a sea of red yellow and Blue, and when Chris kicked that goal, it was me you could hear up on the seat singing " YOU WISH YOU HAD CHRISSY TARRANT IN YOUR FOOTBALL TEAM!!"


But the roar when the pies ran out onto the ground in the 2002 prelim against crows, was the loudest and emotional roar I have felt!!
