Snod - like I said, I am one of the (apparently) strange fans that actually cheers for the Wests and Balmain premier league and junior sides screams, shock, horror - please tell me there are not fans who actually cheers for Balmain and Wetst Junior sides……OMFG**** Snod, I didn’t realise we had to hate eachother …note to self, as a born and bred Balmain tragic, hate everything Wests because Hater and Snod said that everything pre 1999 is the way it should be, and I must hate everything pre 1999 that is not Balmain - even the team we merged with because anything less betrays our history!
The fact that you imply we only play at Leichhardt for irrational emotional reasons shows your absolute lack of objectivity, and simply goes to illustrate that anything further you say in this debate should be taken with a grain of salt.
The reason we play at Leichhardt old mate is because it is one of our home grounds - if you want to bring a balmin/Wests argument into that - I feel sorry for you. The reason we play at Leichhardt (NB spelling of Leichhardt) is no more for histrical reasons that the reason we play at Cambo, or Manly play at Brookvale, or Penrith play at Penrith, or Cronulla play at Cronulla - IT’S (one of) OUR HOME GROUNDS!!! We have a few (too many ) home grounds, just like the Dragqueens merger. It’s life, build a bridge and get over with it. For you to make such statement about Leichhardt (implying the only reason we play there is for emotional and irrational reasons) and omitt Campbelltown in any similar assessment shows your objectivity and lack of ability to be reasonable in this discussion. Are you and Hater the same person?
As for your ANZAC argument (analogy) - it simply doesn’t stack up. By your way of thinking, cheering the ANZAC’s automatically belies our roots (either Wests or Balmain). Ridiculous notion that would only ever be argued by the cave dwellers that continue to pursue the us v them (read Balmain/Wetst v Wests/Balmain) agenda. Take the agenda elsewhere - WE NOW SUPPORT THE WESTS TIGERS IN THE NRL.
I can’t recall seeing you or Hater on the hill last night - all my family and I saw were Wests TIgers supporters - on a dreary rainy Saturday night against a non-Sydney team - in their thouands?
