As a result of a blog post on an Australian sports site I came across the Richmond Tigers of the AFL. There are many similarities to the Tiger-Cats, including their only recently coming out of a long period of financial instability that caused poor on field results.
Their colours are also Yellow(Gold) and Black, but no surprise there from a team called the "Tigers"
Also, their old logo (they are going through the usual controversy over updating their logo) bears a striking resemblance to our 1940's one.
But the most interesting bit is their fight song. We've been thinking we need to do more with the Tiger-Cats' fight song and this may provide some inspiration.
Fans of other AFL teams have posted their belief that the Tigers fight song is the best in their league. I prefer our fight song, although I'll admit that this recording of the Richmond Tigers fight song is well done, and better than this light-weight version I could find of ours.
