#56. I am sure many think the same.It is a pity because they were not like this a couple of years ago.They were much more humble and respectful of others and had quite some success around that time.It appears they have reverted to what things were like a years ago when they were starved of success for many years .

Quoting South Side:
Cheddar - it doesn't have to be like this between us. To never support another club who is representing Tas is a bit sad. I hope the rest of the Olympia fan clan don't feel the way you do. I know I supported Dev and South when they made it. Sad Cheds, so sad....

I also supported South and Port but I cant support Olympia. They are a disgrace.
