    At the end of the day, I hope we all want the same thing - to support the team and be there for them.
    Disagree

    I think ain't a battle between NCL and Squadron

    NCL doing theirown thing their own way

    Squadron can do what they like

    Where the he'll this talk if merging come from??

    Obviously no understanding of what NCL is about

    Blokes going to the football and having a good time.
    No rules no control no organisation


    Football supporting is supposed to be fun .

    Is it fun for those not being in the Squadron any more??
    That probably why the numbers constantly shrinking.

    It just isn't fun

    It be very interesting to see what sort of turn out NCL get v Victree

    Show how many out there just want to go have fun at the Jets games again

    I think the talk of merging is logical when everyone departs the active support area during a game and goes and sits on the grass terrace.

    The problem I see will be FFA's interpretation of active support "outside" a designated area. They had the spotlight thrown on them with the fence collapse so I expect increased security over there next game - I have no doubt FFA will be monitoring, especially when RBB is due to march past that area in the coming weeks.

    So can I ask if there is goodwill amongst supporters at this time. If not, can people rise above it?

    Yes. No one will be on Bay 1.

    The terrace NCL have made "home" I sit right above, the seco's Police were eye balling them non stop during the last game. Don't see them lasting long without someone stepping in.

    That's not really a response to my question.

    Lets say that not everyone gets to Bay 1 and support as 1 on Saturday. Lets say some people stay in the Active Support area or the "cage" as some people call it. Is there goodwill amongst supporters?

    BTW I hate that marketing slogan "Together We Can Soar". IMO any club that relies on propaganda to speak to their supporters doesn't have a genuine relationship with them. It's treating them like arm's length consumers, which is probably why the Jets have a "Consumer Operations Manager". Eergh!

    At least I hear that they no longer refer to it as the "Members' Sub-committee". So there is some progress.

    Ok I think that partially answers my question. I'll be joining the Squadron in the cage. But I wish you all the best.

    The funny thing is, when the A-League first started, I went to the stadium and counted all of the seats behind the goal. I think there were about 400 of them, and came back on here and said, "Right guys, the goal is to get the squadron to 400 to fill all those seats" and people went "What? No, we're not going down there, we're going to stand on the grass hill.". So that is where I set up the Squadron. It was totally up to the group. Then Sydney shit on our support in the second game and a few of us suspected it was due to the sound echoing off the concrete behind them, so we asked the club and they were happy for us to move, because they wanted us to be on tv more. We chose Bay2 because it had more probability of having the same accoustic properties that the Away bay had. It was great fun, especially being able to hang the Argentinian streamers off the corporate boxes, with Argy's FUERZA JETS banner loud and proud. In season 2 some Jets employee (who shall remain nameless) even helped Argy drape a banner over the Mariner fans showing Jets sinking a boat. Yes, heaps of fun. I agree that fun is the key element. Getting out of the sun in Bay 2 was a good idea but the corner just didn't work. I couldn't hear from Bay 55. So now the Squadron is back to those very seats that I was going to use in the first place. I went down there against the Mariners and it was great. I've been able to hear the Squadron from behind the goals in Bay 55, even though there weren't many of them. So the original problem on the grass hill must not apply to the seated area.

    I personally don't begrudge anyone returning to Bay 1. But active support has been wandering the stadium like the Jews in the wilderness. I think "active support" with organised tifo can work from behind the goals. It's worth a try. That is the traditional home for the loudest fans and I loved giving shit to Izzo. I also think that two groups working together in goodwill could be great for the club. I can see two distinct roles that each fulfill, and it always was the case. Even in Bay 1/Bay2. Each attracted different people.

    So in the name of propaganda. Come join the "RAGE IN THE CAGE!". For those who are inclined to tifo, create your own standards and bring them. That's what the cage is for. Parents, feel free to send your teenage kids there to have fun. The Squadron has always been accused of being a bunch of teenagers, but they'll be safe in the cage and maybe a year down the track they will migrate over to ncl, or come back, or whatever. i don't care.

    Really, we need those grass hills to be redeveloped into something 21st century. You will then get a proper bay behind the goal.

    As I said earlier trying to start a group up again in Bay 1 will not succeed - Wanderers to come here yet and remember why the Squadron were moved to the corner in the first place. Security will be all over it.

    Yep, once Stage 4 (?) of the stadium development happens and the ends get the full seating treatment then behind the goals with be undoubtedly the place to be.... that's if it ever happens!
