I come from a generation that was taught if you're a dinamovac and lucky to be a player, you only play for Dinamo and you'd never go to Hajduk. I'm sure the opposite is true as well. In modern Croatia, however, this is not the case. Time and time again, we see people switch sides like gace. Here's a quick list I can think of:

-Niko Kranjcar
-Josko Jelicic
-Mirko Hrgovic
-Ante Rukavina
...and now Marin Tomasov.

My question to all of you is: what are your thoughts on players swapping allegiances and going over to the proverbial enemy? Is it only the money or something else? Would you ever if you were in their shoes? Would you ever switch colors and allegiances?

Do you think the fans of the team do have a lasting grudge?

Another good example is Anas Sharbini. I know him and his brother both went to Split, but really? Split? Fuckin go to Dinamo like a normal person, let Maminjo do his 'magic' and then transfer out of there. But no, both of those assholes had to go to our biggest rivals and honestly, I get a chuckle or two when I think about how both their careers went downhill since they left Rijeka. I wouldn't mind taking Ahmad back since I don't think he was dying to go to Hajduk and he has been rumored to come back a few times in the last year or two, but Anas is a cocksucker and a headcase and made a few off color comments about Rijeka, Armada, etc. I hope he rots in Split and never sees a minute of time for the repka.

The rivalry and hatred between dinamo and hajduk has only grown in the past 20 yrs. That has to make it one of the hardest decisions for a player to make. I will try to put my love for dinamo to the side right now and be neutral, but I see no benefit for a player to go from dinamo to hajduk. What Tomasov did was more than just for money. Leaving that sinking ship that is Hajduk Split, he is only helping himself. And joining Dinamo? Not only will he get paid regularly, win championships, and potentially play in the Champions League, but going there is one giant step toward leaving the HNL all together and joining bigger and better clubs. I think that is the main reason anyone would leave their team to join the enemy.

And for the rest of the questions? I would NEVER leave dinamo for split. That shits in my blood and won't change. And as for the fans? Hell yes they hold grudges. Wouldn't you? Remeber when Kranjcar went to Split? I can speak for the hajduk fans, but how do you think they feel about Rukavina?

A question I have is what to fans of NK Zagreb feel about players like Krstanovic going to dinamo?

NK Zagreb and Dinamo really isn't that big of a rivalry.. It's not like NK Zagreb have been in the top 5 and challenging for a spot in Europe, winning the HNL, etc. I doubt they really care about Krstanovic, unless you're talking to some hardcore bijeli andjeli

Armada, I apologize to only include Dinamo and Hajduk. Certainly the question is extended to Rijeka supporters, Osijek, Pula, etc.

Armada - Oh yeah I know, but fans still can't be happy to lose him. He was the league leading scorer last season. It was just an example I used about a bigger HNL player moving.
