You’ll have to step up to get ACT4GWS over the line

By johnboy 23 September 2010 23

The Sydney Morning Herald notes that the bid to link Canberra with Sydney’s Western Suburbs for the purposes of AFL football is in some trouble.

The story says that only 4,000 of the needed 5,000 $50 pledges have turned up.

The ACT4GWS website at this time actually says the number is 3,422, with 7 days to go.

So if you want to have a piece of an AFL team playing four games a year here in Canberra it’s time to put your hands in your pockets!

Apparently if the numbers don’t come good “all bets are off.”

What’s Your opinion?

Another line needed saying we are the boys from Western Sydney but can also pretend to be from Canberra if anyone believes it.

We’re home in Western Sydney
except every other day
when we are in Canberra
where they actually can play
Aussie Rules and Rugby League and Union as well
why should we think its Sydney
no-one can us tell

Didnt get their own team
So we’re here to save the day
the Boys from Western Sydney
(and Canberra every other day)

here’s my submission for their inaugural season’s song, offered here, as a riotact exclusive, moments before I post on bigfooty.com

Oh we’re the
boys from Western Sydney
But only since last year
In any time before that
We hadn’t set foot near

We were all born in Melbourne
Except Israel Falou
And all the Internationals
Who Sheedy will show how

To forward pass and kick the ball
Through 4 sticks with no net
If we make the best 22
Someone will lose a bet

We are the boys from Western Sydney
Greater than the rest
Working out our mascot
The hardest first up test

Western Sydney will be proud
As they watch us play
Even if the most of them
Think our code is ghey
