Luv'd aussie rules for over 50 years. Luv the gradual emergence of a truly national and balanced competition.

Then you’ll agree the use of the “royal we” by you is no longer applicable then, right? Bye.

Six talking points from AFL Round 17

But nevertheless a point exemplified by a rather horrendous and memorable example, yeah?

That’s Mr Buttitch not Hurt. Nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah. Infant.

Yeah, mr sanctimonious at work. Geez it’s tedious.

Reading your original comment on this thread, it is not possible to reconcile your latest contribution. Anyway, good luck to Geelong, they deserve the best this season.

Limited I’d say. I hope they give Shaw a run.

Times finished in top 8, in the completed seasons this decade, is as per my numbers. Yes Geelong will even that score by the end of the current season. Your original numbers had Geelong as outperforming the Swans in terms of season win/loss alone. Now you want to discount my response about finals win/loss. Sanctimonious rubbish. Sydney has outperformed Geelong in that valid measure, although Geelong may even that score also this year, we will see. None of this indicates that Longmire in an inferior coach to Scott or anyone else but arguably Clarkson, yet that was your proposal in response to this article. Looking at the numbers, it indicates that he is as superior a coach as all but one this decade, and more so that most.

Franklin? Absolutely yes. Just like he was for the Hawks, inc one prem. But in addressing Longmire’s achievements as a coach, I’m even more pleased as I could reasonably be. The qualification there is the two prem’s that we did not win. In one we were inexplicably thrashed by a superior team; the other we let slip. Not Longmire’s fault in either case.

Ok, no response to my follow up question, so here goes.
The justifiably admirable Geelong season win/loss 2010 – 2018 produced 7 finals wins in total, one GF appearance and one flag. The inferior Swans season win/loss over the same period produced 10, 3 and 1. Swans better.
Times finished in top 8 is 9 to 8 in favour of the Swans.
How am I going?

You mean «Bit », right. Let’s see how Cat answers the follow up. :-). Amazing win for the Pies btw.

Times in top 8? Finals win/loss?

I see you have an opinion, which is fine. Not sure what makes you an expert, but no need to explain. However I would question that notion based on your rationale as to Longmire’s success/value/ability as a coach. Firstly, being assessed in terms of how he or has not used Franklin has almost no relevance at all. Secondly, the arguments that Franklin has been used in exactly the way he should have been by The Swans are easily made. So, we’ll see how Horse goes over the next 2 seasons with the task he now has and make a call then I think. To do that now is just plain dumb/hysterical.

And you team is?

It was a bad loss, but well done blues. Anyway, nice to see you back carping like a primary schooler after disapearing whilst the swans were winning.

Says a footy expert. Sheesh, what a waste of oxygen.

Bye.

Bombed out badly Swannies. Not good enough, but it’s part of the path back to top 8 ability. Well done Carlton, great win.

Truth.

Just addressing the issue at hand and the stupid input from those two. Problem?

John Longmire signs new contract to remain at Swans

16 on the field each, 4 interchange to a max of 80 each, 2 subs.

Footy is in a funk

If being a finals participant for pretty much all of the last 2 decades is close to a wooden spoon, well I’ll take it. So much arrogance from a one slam wonder Richmond follower. Next 30 years, coming up.

John Longmire signs new contract to remain at Swans

Dodged a bullett, pfft. Yeah Longmire did that’s for sure. I hope Shaw is successful, but it will not be because of anything he learnt from Scott or NM if he is.

John Longmire signs new contract to remain at Swans

Longmire and Swans have a better record by far than Scott and Geelong in this decade. Cheap shot rubbish as usual. Jon boy, you are looking more the yes man.
