Whichever group is actively supporting will have my matchday support and voice.
The betting agency partnership does make me sick. It is an embarassment, and I continue to protest this involvement.
Do people actually remember the support GGA provided pre-2006? STUNNED that folk continue to suggest the GGA are not football people.
You're mistaking the GGA and the Fanatics, Fuss'. I abhor that bogan element as much as the next guy, but we see it creeping in everywhere these days.
While the GGA has unfortunately evolved into a "travel agent" in recent years, it was born as 100% football lovers, and active supporters. To suggest otherwise is to rewrite history.
Following the NT from the early 90's onwards in Melb there was nothing (Sydney had Bay 23), so I was rapt when the GGA eventually appeared on the scene. (even tho' the core of them were Carltoon SC supporters ;) )
GGA made a presence at Aust fixtures dating back to 2000 or so.
Personally, I've stood side-by-side with the GGA at Oceania Nations Cup games, U23's Oly Qualifiers, U20's Youth World Cup Qualifiers and countless other more and less fashionable fixtures.
Respect where its due.
