    f**k me. Fire up you sad merkin Round

    Every club has bandwagon fans. Or folks who "love" the game but never go.

    You can spot em easily. New shiny jerseys or artifically aged retro logo tees. Cronulla 2016 GF...yep, they fired up.

    So with that in mind, inspired by Gaz's call to arms, get to a game you sad merkins. That includes Souffs fans who've been MIA since tge 2014 GF.

    Because it only counts if we see it, right?

    Correct.

    But my pop saw them all, so I can talk about it.

    Ironic, isn't it.

    __________

    But the same two teams playing each other every year on ANZAC Day didn't start until 2002.

    Well, no it isn't. It happened exactly as I wrote.

    I didn't say it was started because of a jersey. I said it was started to honour the St George and Illawarra regions. It just included a retro-design jersey. They even used the term "heritage round" before everyone else started to do it.

    __________

    Perhaps you shouldn't make assumptions about people based on what they choose to wear. I've been a season ticket-holder for 16 years and I buy and wear shiny new jerseys each year. I also like artificially aged retro tees. In fact, most people do. That's why you can find them in just about every casual fashion retailer in the country. Because they are popular.

    Wearing a new jersey doesn't make somebody a bandwagon fan and wearing your old cotton jersey, complete with 20 year-old meat pie stains and an iron-on player number half peeling off the back doesn't make your love of your team any more valid than anybody else's.

    This reply is worthy of a themed round of its own.

    Gosh darn you Saints fans are sooooo inspirational.

    It's 'joint venture round', thank you very much..

    As such, for that round I recommend the Wests Tigers challenge the GWS Giants in a game of soccer.

    I'd probably go, since we'd have a shot at winning for once...

    So long as GWS don't use AFL scoring for every time they miss a goal

    To be fair to JVs, I always thought Canterbury and Bankstown were the progenitors.

    And the first to have one - Canterbury - conveniently "forget" the other.

    Were Canterbury and Bankstown originally separate clubs?

    It's threads like this I'm eternally grateful the Sharks popped their cherry.

    Then I think of Gow and his scissors roll.

    The Brisbane Broncos have adopted that strategy and taken it to a new level by implementing it in a grand final under Wayne Bennett. Coincedence?
