Hi Titans Fans!

Sorry I've been having trouble with my ISP.

But I'm so keyed up for this Friday! Let's show them what real atmosphere is and let the Broncos fans leave with an inferiority complex.

I hear we are going to have big numbers with lots of people bringing friends.

Let's get loud, passionate and show our true colours.

Remember to get there as early as possible!

basically if the people wanting seats in the front section of the LEGION arent Diehard TITANS supporters and arent ready to scream, cheer and chant, (while standing for majority of game) then they can have any other seat in section 30, if their a broncos supporter? just fnck off up the back of section 30 just to keep themselves safe.......lol

there should be the regulars

This will be a big test for us, they have some great inform forwards atm, and without Harrison in the pack, i hope Conn works as hard as he has last 2 weeks off the bench.

Game plan should be simple, smash Ennis, break his confidence, and the rest will follow. That guy is there weakest link IMO. I just hope they dont put PJ Marsh in there.

Sounds like the perfect plan. That's the worst part about no car park, we could tailgate otherwise. I'd love to bring a full esky down before the game and get primed. Getting lit up and then taking the train presents a whole host of problems.

If this weather keeps up this won't be a very telegenic game. But rainy games at home are a strength, Titans were like 2 from 3 or 3 from 4 last year at home in the rain right?

I invited a Titans fan I know along, told her to get Legion tickets. They joined us in the front row and really looked to get into it, was good!
I noticed while we had broncos fans in our bay, there were Titans fans in the away bay.

19-04-08, 02:25 PM
Well the day started of great with a win for our Toyota Cup boys and then a visit by Michael Searle (Managing Director) and Jason Sintome (Communications Manager) to The Legion for a pre-game chat.

Which is always a treat for fans to get to meet the Titans boss but it is probably also a treat for him to see fans embrace his club so passionately. But we sure are lucky to have not only a fantastic stadium and playing roster, but also the best managing director who all rugby league fans like.

Then we got a visit from Dee, in his Clark Kent guise before turning into Blade. Blade also paid us a visit later in the night with Turbo. Although the Bronco mascots couldn't help themselves but loiter around The Legion area. It was hilarious to see, I think it was either DannyBoi/Boof/GCT 89 or all of them poking the mascots with our flags.

The Smurfs were out in force, but of course the weather put the brakes on their plans to come painted. But painted or not it doesn't slow them down from being linch pins in Section 30.

Some highlights was starting that wave that went around the stadium. I don't think I've ever seen DannyBoi so excited and fullfilled. It certainly is a sight to see and its a credit that Titans fans can do a wave without any negative rubbish happening.

Someone cracked out a blue, gold and white beach ball which got sent around Section 30, then someone speared it off to the left into 29. I was laughing so hard when I saw the ball over near the south western bays until it got captured by a security guard. It certainly reminded me of the days when they had sponsored XXXX balls that got thrown into crowds and bounced around at QE2.

Of course Skilled Park had an infestation of Broncos fans and we had more than our fair share in Section 30. But Hully Gully is deadset right, alot scarpered early. At the moment it seems The Legion has an easier time when it isn't a fullhouse cause there is a bit more room to move and we can recruit people easier.

But the Legion is planned to get a lot bigger and cheaper in 2009, so watch out! Soon we really will have a Legion in Section 30!

The rain didn't phase us, even though we were soaked and the flags got water logged and weighted 10 times their original weight. It was also fun flicking water over everyone on purpose by whipping the flags n the air, although I think Paul got the brunt of it and I appreciate him not hurting me.

As usual we jeered the Broncos players, Under 20s and NRL. And lauded the Titans players. We went berserk when Shannon Walker scored right in front of us in the Toyota Cup match!

Another highlight was the Titans players coming over to The Legion giving us some high 5s and signing a few autographs, which GCT 89 can talk about. But well done for that, most appreciated especially after they would have been so mentally and physically exhausted.

The Legion was beaming with pride when our patron player Matt Petersen scored a hattrick! And we were buzzing with fan favourite Preston Campbell's darting runs and electric plays.

On the way home to the trains I had some girls stop me and ask if I was part of the Legion, and they said they were sitting near us and loved it. And they will be with us next week against the Warriors. They were also decked out head to toe in Titans gear, so definitely the type of fans we want. I said just grab a ticket and come right down the front, don't be shy.

And when I got off at Helensvale this young bloke asked if I was in The Legion and I said yep and once again I invited him to be part of us.

I really think we need to get business cards for everyone to give out so we can pass on that info presisely and fast and also on something that will help em remember.

It's just great to see people enjoying the game and The Legion, even if they aren't part of it. But it's also great to see them wanting to join it!

what another awesome night within the Legion....
i brought some of mine & titantattsman family to last nights game (although two of them were broncos fans) they really enjoyed it.. alot different to sunsorp they said.

its great to see that we are doing such a great job week in, week out...

LOL

I think you got me 4 or 5 times, I was already drenched so it didn't make much difference :D

The funniest one was right at the end of the game when the flag got wrapped completely around my head and I was lost inside of it for a few seconds :D

19-04-08, 06:23 PM
hello all wat a game for the boys and the fans of the titans as u many know i was un able to make it to the game as i am in rocky i was sending msg to my bro daveyk to try and get the boys going.hehehe.

As i sat in the pub all by myself watching the game i was so happy that boys won but not only that it was the cheering i could hear from the fans it was so good it game me goose bumps.

Well done to all the fans at the game u did a great job. Week in and week out i get even prouder of being a titans fan and to have the tattoo on my arm.

WELL DONE TOO ALL!!!!!!!!!

Great work last night Legionaires. Pretty soon you guys will have a reputation to uphold within the NRL if you keep going at this rate. The opposition will dread coming back to the Colliseum next year.

Did anyone see Blade and Turbo give it to maroon Buck the Bronco on about the 10 metre line South Eastern end. Turbo and I double teamed and had a mock fight with Buck. He went down to the ground and we started laying the boots in. HILARIOUS!!! I thought the crowd were cheering a play on the field, but they were cheering Blade and Turbo. Great fun.

Thanks to Buck(J) and Buck(T) for the fun times again during the local derby. Looking forward to the next time we meet. Those 2 guys are great sports.

It was a fair way away from The Legion. But I zeroed in on it when I heard the crowd cheer loudly. I thought there must have been a fight in the stands or something, but I saw blade and turbo laying into Buck!

It was good fun. The 4 of us all had a huge laugh about it when we got back to the changerooms. Did a bit of funny photo stuff aswell. Mascot head swapping.

We will return the favours for the fans and cop some punishment when we go to Brissy later in the year. Its only fair.

It's great that we can fill up the front so well now. You can see a distinct difference between the Legionnaires at the front and the regular fans and punters behind us.

My mind races thinking about having every row in Section 30 like that, bleeding blue, gold and white.

That is certainly the goal! Michael Searle wants to have an entire bay of Legionnaires! So let's do it!
