Adelaide



"Matters came abruptly to a head on 31 July 1990 when perennially successful Port Adelaide....made an independent and unilateral application to join the AFL. The move was totally unexpected and precipitated South Australian football into a period of quite unprecedented turmoil, controversy and confusion...The SANFL was left with little option but to table a counter submission of its own and, once this had happened, it soon became clear that Port Adelaide's bid was doomed....In November 1990 the new Adelaide Football Club, to be known as the Crows, was officially born..."

John Devaney charts the troubled birth, and successful life, of the Adelaide Crows
