I lived near Redfern Station, in 1999
The images of South Sydney fans weeping in the streets when their club was kicked out of the competition in 1999 and then 80,000 marching to Town Hall to save the Rabbitohs a year later remain among the most powerful in Australian sport.
In 1994, it became so bad that Piggins, by then the club president, attended a dinner at Kerry Packer Vaucluse home. The main course was talk about a possible merger with arch rivals, Eastern Suburbs.
South Sydney spirit. From the time when the doors to the Leagues Club on Chalmers Street in Redfern were temporarily closed in 1973 to the arrival of current chief executive Shane Richardson in 2004, the Rabbitohs were living on the bread line.
But what stirs the blood most in Hayley Legg song is this proud club being knocked down, trampled, laughed at and still fighting.
After an entree of oysters, Packer, Alan Jones, Piggins and Roosters chairman Nick Politis discussed the possibility of two sworn enemies forming a joint venture.
Well, you give us entertainment and everything we need
A proud club that would not die
Piggins still refuses to budge on some of the tactics used. The man who marched the Rabbitohs faithful back into the NRL still won attend games or club functions after his rivals allegedly hired private investigators to dig up dirt on him, his family and friends.
when it became clear that it was nothing more than an Eastern Suburbs takeover, Piggins nipped the conversation in the bud.
A huge part of the charm is how much this club loves a fight. Its next one would be an internal war between Piggins and Crowe and businessman Peter Nike Air More Uptempo Mens Footlocker Holmes a Court. Central to the dispute was the privatisation of the club in 2006.
Right near where it all began, along this Railway line
Wooden spoons in 2003, 2004 and 2006 were the initial receipt for being allowed back into the NRL, yet still the red and green faithful the battlers from Redfern, Waterloo, Zetland, Mascot, Botany and La Perouse voted with their feet by turning up to games.
It is compelling viewing. There are grainy images of Clive Churchill running on to the SCG, Bob McCarthy 1967 grand final intercept try against Canterbury and John Sattler playing the 1970 grand final with a broken jaw.
Co owner Russell Crowe knows how to stir red and green passion.
As the Rabbitohs last night embarked on their second finals campaign in 23 years in Melbourne, all the emotion of the struggle was laid bare in a song called in their Eyes At its heart is the hope and rebirth of a club once revered as Pride of the League

the lowest point, I didn think we get back. I thought when it got to that real desperate stage that the party was over, Sattler says. George Piggins had other ideas. He was a thorn in the side to all of the bludgers who tried to ruin Souths.
And though you line your pockets and you must pick up the lies

from them. John Sattler was one of the toughest footballers of his generation. He led Souths to their last premiership in 1971 and he never walked away from a fight.
I bet you never seen South Sydney with glory in their eyes
Even after winning their Federal Court case in 2000 to confirm their re admission to the NRL, the Rabbitohs faced an even greater fight. They had to rebuild a club from ground zero, with no players, no training ground, no administrative staff or cash flow to get the club back up and running.
through all the trouble, when the club almost went broke and when we were really on our knees, people still had faith that it would get up and live on.
men in their sixties weep wasn an easy thing to contend with on the night when they tried to kill the greatest club on earth, Piggins says. I never considered giving up.
