    Keeping the Faith

    As seen in this thread and this one.

    I am a Supporter of the Western Force, I paid my “out of towners” membership, I have a Home, and an Away Jersey. 3 T-shirts and a Hat.

    I live in Sydney.

    I have a favor to ask all of the Perth based members of TheWholeForce.com.

    Make up your own version of the “I have faith” sign.

    Tell your friends to do the same.

    Lets show our team how much they mean to us.

    Lets show them that we are with them during the lean times as well as the good times

    Lets show the world via Foxtel that we aren’t on some Bandwagon looking to jump off very soon.

    This is our last home game of the year – lets show Our Team what it means to be a Western Australian based team.

    Say it loud, Say it proud.

    I am a Supporter of the Western Force.

    Has the originator come forward yet? They're practically famous.

    I love the idea of several "I have faith" signs, personally mine would say "I have faith too".

    Maybe if there was a group of you one could have a few different ones, from "I have faith", to "I have faith too", all the way to, "I'm not really the religious type, I mean I go to church on easter and christmas but that's pretty much it... but GO FORCE!"

    But I'm drunk, so don't listen to me. I just think it would be comical and almost asured of getting on the telly.

    Great ideas crew, let's really get behind the concept and use this last chance for the season to really show our boys how much they mean to us and to let the rest of the rugby world know loud and clear that Western Australian supporters stick through thick and thin.
    I also favour the variations however, unless you can't find the materials, try and stick with the original look and print to make the theme obvious to all.
    Perhaps you fellas up in the Three Tier Stand can get together to make a really big version from several cards or the like?
    With regard to the originator, perhaps they may want to stay anonomous, but otherwise surely they can be tracked down to an area of the stands by the camera angle on the replay and from TWF Members who may have been sitting nearby?

    Can't wait to see the signage guys. Great idea- builds team and crowd spirit, and identity.

    Here's a related song lyric from Star Trek:Enterprise - which most of the trekkers could belt out the tune, even if they weren't sure of the words fully as yet. Just the first four lines of the chorus would do , and even just the first line , as a prompt eg for a push over scrum try or line out win.

    Faith of The Heart
    written by Diane Warren and sung by Russell Watson

    verse
    It's been a long road
    Getting from there to here
    It's been a long time
    But my time is finally near
    And I will see my dream come alive at last,
    I will touch the sky
    And they're not gonna hold me down no more
    No, they're not gonna change my mind

    chorus
    (CAUSE) I GOT FAITH OF THE HEART
    IM GOING WHERE MY HEART WILL TAKE ME
    I GOT FAITH , TO BELIEVE
    I CAN DO ANYTHING
    I GOT STRENGTH , OF THE SOUL
    AND NO ONES GONNA BEND OR BREAK ME
    I CAN REACH , ANY STAR
    I GOT FAITH,
    FAITH OF THE HEART

    Very approriate indeed. But probably not well known, I'm afraid. Pity. 25,000 Force faithful belting that one out would rival the Arms Park mob

    Thanks Shas, but as another song said "from little things, big things grow". Maybe can work on this in the offseason and build it into collective memory. An audio download on TWF would help tremendously ( Help Coach ). Also have to get clearance with music company involved - but they love to have have their material as anthems for teams - good press !

    Those last two lines look the best but are actually harder to sing. For starters, I'd recommend sticking with the opening four lines and the first especially, because they can be BELTED OUT !
    Also they ascend , which is easier for an anthem/crowd to sing.

    C'mon all you Trekkers in cyberspace, get on board with this, get the message around ! I know the Star Wars/"Force be with you" theme has been downplayed somewhat ( not Coach's avatar OB1 Kenobe) , but a blend of Star Trek/Star Wars effect has got to be "a success of the human spirit".
