Left-winger on the Bench
Leave your Left wing extremist political extremist bullshit off the terraces and out of football. I believe in freedom of speech but don't hold an 'invasion day' banner in he march. That represents all of us and i bet not many people have those stupid extreme left wing views as you. Keep politics out of football or fuck off to Heart.

Firstly, a factual correction: it wasn’t mine, and it wasn’t an “Invasion Day banner”. It was a small, innocuous indigenous flag emblazoned with “No Room For Racism”.

Hardly extremist, and barely even political. Quite simple and harmless.

Think about it. It consists of two components. The indigenous flag, and a message effectively stating that racism shouldn’t be tolerated. Both were entirely consistent with the official U-NITE theme of the match.

Even bloody security gave it the A-OK. Which says something, given that items categorised as political and “ethnic” are explicitly banned from A-League matches.

Also, just a quick note on the label of “extremism”. What is “extremism” anyway? It’s all relative, and depends on your perspective and the norms of any given historical era. 

Much of Europe is in a state of extreme political and economic crisis, ironically brought about by moderate centrist political parties. We have democracy in some parts of the world today because extremists of their time (i.e. Jacobins in France, say) fought for it against the moderate establishment who recoiled from popular democracy. All I’m saying is the language of “extremism” is useless and intellectually lazy, about 99% of the time.

I myself have never directly brought politics into the terrace, but either way, I’m not going to “fuck off to Heart”. I’ll stick with Melbourne and stick with North Terrace so we can continue the fight for an active area capable of organic growth and free from arbitrary restrictions.

Back in full voice for the first time this season after four months of boycotts. 
Feels good. Amazing.

Ange Postecoglou: ”We’ve made a lot of changes, not only in personnel, but the way we train and the way we play,” ”If it was a traditional pre-season of four weeks, I’d be pretty nervous right now. We’d be nowhere near where we are at the moment. Whatever we produce tomorrow night, we will improve. Tomorrow night’s our starting point.”
