It is suggested that, West Coast Eagles fans buy more sports related personalised number plates than supporters of any other team in Australia.

A major investigation launched by WA Today, shows that 5999 West Coast numer plates have been sold since the Eagles hatched onto the Australian football scene in 1990.

This number beat their rivals the Dockers, whose fans have bought 3267 private number plates since 1995.

Dockers tragics need not be too despondent, on the number plate front at least, because their team plate drubbed the next most popular sporting related number plate in Australia, than that of the Canberra Raiders.

In the standoff of Canberra Stadium, rugby league's Green Machine outmuscled the newer Brumbies rugby union team 783 number plates to 549.

The next most popular side was the mighty St George Dragons, with 350 personalised plates cruising the streets of Sydney.

In South Australia, the Adelaide Crows pipped the newer Port Adelaide side 86 to 57 in the personalised plate showdown.
