Jay Clark and Sam Edmund argue over Brad Crouch and pick apart each other's SuperCoach sides.

NEW Power coach Ken Hinkley is promising none of his Port Adelaide team will ever be accused of giving up.

Tainted by the image of hoisting white flags last season, Port players have been charged by Hinkley to regain respect in the AFL this season - a campaign that starts for Port on Easter Sunday against Melbourne at the MCG.

"This group will never, ever give up - they will play to the end,'' Hinkley said.

Port has won just 34 of 110 premiership-season games since its disastrous 2007 Grand Final appearance against Geelong.

"This group is sick to death of being average,'' Hinkley said in a stirring speech at the Power's season launch at Adelaide Oval last night.

"It is driven to make sure this club climbs up the ladder again. And it is prepared to do whatever it takes to make sure where actually get somewhere.''

Hinkley also delivered an encouraging vision on Port's game style, promising a playbook long demanded by the fans.

"We will play tough, hard Port Adelaide football,'' he said. "We have to be that team that wins contested ball and is a good defensive team.

"But surely you want to see the team use the ball well. So you will see them play with some direction. They will challenge other sides when we have the ball. They will be brave in the way we use the ball; they will not be frightened about where we are to go. We will make sure we play forwards not backwards - and we will make sure we take the game on and the opposition on.''
