    The player I feel for the most is Colin Garland who was cruelled by injury but who stuck fat with the club; if anyone deserved to play finals, it was him. Hogan and Lever, and possibly Vince, will play finals next year.

    Waleed to the rescue.....

    That may we’ll be the point SF, but the problem here is that threads like this will be, and are, hijacked; this thread being a case in point.

    Lock this thread up. This kind of discussion was barred in the General forum, and now we have the usual suspects pushing their respective barrows here in a football discussion forum!

    Was the win against West Coast rigged?

    Great table as it also should silence those who continually harp on about the AFL (via the umpires) having it in for us. Sydney on the other hand...

    Like the free against AVB, you mean?

    Arrogant Swans Fans

    I'm afraid I don't get your drift at all... the SMH links directly to Real Footy. It has the same articles as appear in The Age online news. Oh, and if it's scrolling that bothers you, you actually have to scroll further to get to the NRL which is situated below the Sport section where the AFL news can be found. As far as numbers go, it is NOT a monopoly market. They share the AFL with GWS as well as competing with nine Sydney based NRL clubs, a number of Rugby Union clubs and soccer clubs. The fact that they have so many members is a reflection on just how well they are doing in a market that was once almost entirely owned by the NRL.

    Trade HOGAN

    Yeah, even if he was one of our better players yesterday... and even if he has performed at a much improved level since his recall.

    Arrogant Swans Fans

    I’ve lived in Sydney since 1979 and can honestly say that the Swans have far more relevance here than clubs from any other code. They get bigger crowds, they have a winning culture that is admired by Sydney-siders and they are the reason that AFL now has strong support in the wider community at all levels.

    GAMEDAY - Round 21

    Perhaps he and Andrew Brayshaw will be watching together.

    What the Fritsch

    Oddly enough bingers, you weren't my source - my son is ready to deck me if I keep making the comparison each time we watch a game. I suppose the "Jack, not Norman" thing is pretty obvious if you're from a certain generation.

    What the Fritsch

    I was thinking he’s more Gunston-like... and I don’t mean Norman.

    It was mentioned last night on AFL360.

    Go and get Gaff!

    From Peter Caven’s Wiki page... “Caven was the victim of an infamous act of AFL thuggery when St Kilda's Tony Lockett struck him viciously in the face and broke his cheek-bone during a game in 1994. Lockett was handed a heavy suspension of eight weeks for the incident. In an absurd twist, Caven was forced to issue an apology to Lockett the following week after appearing on comedy television show Denton and, at the urging of host Andrew Denton, bashing an effigy of Lockett with a baseball bat. The following season, Caven and Lockett were team-mates at Sydney.”

    Didn’t Plugger Lockett poleaxe a Swans player with similar results the season before he moved to the Swans? I’m pretty sure they kissed and made up during the preseason.

    GAMEDAY - Round 20

    You’re right... I stand corrected and apologies to ProDee for ever doubting him 😃
