For readers over 30, I’ll translate this sign: Black Pearl wishes to advise customers that the wearing of football team attire (and the primitive tribal behaviour it encourages) is aesthetically undesirable and is not allowed in our sophisticated establishment. Thank you for your cooperation.

    Its signs like ths give Fitzroy a snotty name ( ie Gentrified….)

    Unnecessary, particularly during finals weeks when most people show a bit of interest in sport in ths town.

    exactly.

    i’m no fan of football at all but uh isn’t fitzroy the home of of one of the first ever VFL teams and played/plays a major part in the culture of the suburb?

    the history here does go back a litle further the latest “funky” bar to open on brunswick street.

    go to any of the more historic fitzroy pubs like the Union, Napier, Standard or Rose and see how well your “eew, football is for the common folk from the ‘burbs” attitude goes down.

    snobby, elitist attitudes like the ones displayed above rip more of the heart out of Fitzroy than any tapas bar does…

    Maybe they are anti football league members? Apparently the square football badge posse is still active. Can’t imagine coloured up fans hanging @ BP anyway, so that sign is unnecessary, as well as pathetic.

    and surely to be truely “rockin’ it old school” in fitzroy, the sign would have said Lions football colours only?

    I blame my wife for her behaviour after Collingwood beat Adelaide. At least she stopped short of singing…

    I personally love football, but I don’t blame those who want to go somewhere that isn’t full of the footy crowd. Every other venue was showing it anyway.

    I believe that Black Pearl deserves kudos for it’s stance. Sorry Bogans, you will have to take your obsessions and tribal rituals elsewhere :-(
