For the next couple of weeks I am going to focus on the 'fan base'. I just finished watching the cowboys-knights game, and when I saw all those cowboy hats in the crowd, it made me realise we dont have an identity. Apart from wearing the Warrior jerseys. We need something. I have come up with the idea that we could have maori cloaks, head-bands, or hat-bands, as our customary dress. Cloaks would be very easy to make, more like a poncho, with threads of black and silver wool threads piercing through all over the place. On top of a grey background this could look quite attractive.
You blend this with a kapa haka group performing pre-match and I am fairly confident that it will catch on.
As opposition to the Vodofone red jacket, that is coming out shortly, with the words 'one-tribe' on the back, I think the cloak/poncho, and then have the words "Warrior tribe" on the head-bands, will really set the scene.
And then we definitely have to "BRING BACK THE MASCOT". That is a must. More than one, in fact four.
The music, while we are all decked out in our new identity kit, Island,and maori. Just imagine Poi E, a bit of Herbs and their 'nuclear waste is coming down.
BUT first we have to approach Wayne, and tell him we the fans are gonna take control of the entertainment. We cant leave it up to the M.B, to entertain us all the time. We need DMM, OZ-B, Ia and anybody else who is interested.
I close this argument by saying, why should the team entertain us when we dont go out of our way, to entertain them.

we need some big flags with just black and grey on them (ie stripes or checks), those big arse flags are always cool to see in the ground.... also maybe some decent banners, the dragons fans have some of the best banners going around (ie "cooking with gaz", "i love head", "super cooper" (like the superman sign) etc)

Right on mate, right on.

Get us a mascot that matches our culture, lets let our culture shine through with the attire of the crowd, and with a Kapa Haka group. Bring back the Drummers, get traditional/modern Kiwi bands like Herbs, Dave Dobbyn, Zed, Shihad, Jenny Morris, The Exponents, The Swingers etc who we all grew up with to beat out a few tracks pre game.

You've put in words what I've been trying to say mate, well done. You said once your English was no good, mate, you've just communicated the perfect message. Awesome. Coming to Ericsson should be special, it shouldn't be like going to Brookie, or Shark Park, or Aussie Stadium - lets be fair dinkum, Ericsson is no different to those grounds now. No feel to them. It should be an unwelcome experience for teams coming onto the field, bring back the fiery tunnel, then get a kapa haka group in front of them as they run out, get Temuera and his bros along with the Maori spear (sorry I don't know the word, I've been going too long :-( - I miss the country like I miss Mallowpuffs, we don't get that sort of shiznit over here), make Ericsson feel like a cauldron and the results will come - and whats more, not overly league people will be converted because they enjoy the tribalism of OUR ground, not Ericsson, not a typical NRL ground, but OUR GROUND!

Kia Kaha bro - thats what the supporters collective needs to get through to the Warriors. I can't think of anyone else who supports the club who'd want ANYTIHNG DIFFERENT!
