And the new PAMFC competing in the SANFL only has a heritage going back to 1997?

It seems that the PAFC (AFL) has obtained an AFL license and taken which bits they want (some players, coaching staff, training grounds, heritage, board, members, supporters etc...) and then given their scraps to the new PAMFC (SANFL).

That is pretty f**ked up...

Is there any ongoing relationship between the two clubs or do they just share clubrooms?

Why did the group pushing for an AFL license think it so important to carry this heritage into the AFL?

If the AFL is the premier competition and SANFL is the second tier competition, why is there a PA club in both leagues?

This set-up has to be one of the most bizarre things I have ever come across in sport... have any other teams around the nation done this?
You seem to have totally misunderstood something which is very simple to understand.
The Port Adelaide Football Club, founded in 1870, left the SANFL in 1997, and joined the AFL. Still with me?
In the wake of that development, the SANFL demanded that a Port Adelaide side be represented in the State competition, and a second, new team, was established specifically for the SANFL.

Bizarre? Have any other teams done this around the nation?
No, it's not bizzare. They left one competition and joined another.
Carlton, Essendon, Fitzroy(now Brisbane Lions), Geelong, Hawthorn, Melbourne, Saint Kilda.
They are no longer part of the VFL competition, just like Port Adelaide.
And just like they count their state league premierships, so does Port Adelaide.

I just visited the PAMFC website and they state that both teams share the history from 1870 to 1996... :wank:

You can't have the best of both worlds...

Get over it. Your club will never be as great. Accept it, deal with it, move on with life.

What theft? That SANFL club left the SANFL and joined the AFL.

How bloody hard is that to understand?
Am I posting in a foreign language?

I bought a gondola with me this time.

Buona sera, signorina, *punt* buona sera
It is time to say goodnight to Napoli
Though it's hard for us to whisper Buona Sera
With that old moon *punt* above the Mediterranean Sea

In the morning, signorina, *punt* we'll go walking
Where the mountains and the sun come into sight
And by the little *punt* jewlershop we stop and linger
While I buy a wedding ring for your finger

In the meantime let me tell you that I love you
Buona sera signorina kiss me good night!!!


*punt* *punt* *punt* *punt* ...
Exit on the right in the direction of travel.

It's always a relief attending Showdowns because I get to see that there are actually a group of supporters out there that are worse than Crows fans.

Can't we just agree that when there are over 20,000 people in a room there are bound to be total wankers there, no matter what the team they support is?

That may be an uninspiring example of fandom but they aren't displaying bad or moronic behaviour.
