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

True……………..until it’s your wise opinion, then it’s rock solid. Hmmmm.

Buddy brilliant: After one 'bad' year, Sydney's rebuild is already complete

…..he says nodding wisely as a sage of this great sport…..mate are you going to silly some time soon……

How about you Mr Ironmonger. What are your qualifications?

Buddy brilliant: After one 'bad' year, Sydney's rebuild is already complete

You have pulled that straight out of your cave. I wonder if in the future when you grow up you might reflect on being a patsy for the Vic media and their radio darlings?

Buddy brilliant: After one 'bad' year, Sydney's rebuild is already complete

You are probably right about 2020, but Sydney will play him in 2021 if he is available to them to do so, which is when he will get to 1000.

Nah. You either wanna stay or not. If the latter, then go, we‘ll be fine without you.

Stephen Coniglio signs massive deal with GWS

PS. Note my question to asd above. Not answered, as is the case often. Gutless. Can throw shyte but runs and hides when looked in the eye.

The end of an era for the Sydney Swans, but the future is bright

So he can unjustifiably attack the club over and over but not be brought to heal on his emotive diatribe that pays no respect to 20 years running of success in this comp and a bunch of expert people running and or playing for the club? No way. My retaliation to that sort of cheap shot rubbish is entirely justified. If you won‘t see that is fair enough then don‘t read it.

Is you team playing finals?

I don’t know who your club is, but you are not welcome as a Swans fan. You have been persistent in this sort of commentary all year, and if it’s simply click bait, well good on ya. Just makes you and immature fool. If this is your real opinion, the the earlier point applies.

The end of an era for the Sydney Swans, but the future is bright

Nice warm article for a Swans fan. Not disappointed in this season; realities eventually prevail. A hell of a club with a hell of a lot to be proud of. Reminiscent of 2002 swaith of retirements then a build to success. I‘d be disappointed if they weren‘t playing top 8 standard next year and cementing that the following year. From there who knows, it‘s very hard to win prem‘s, especially so for interstate clubs.

There are numerous plausible permutations to this, including damn it WB going deep as well. I just can‘t see them getting past Rich or Lions for some reason. Yes, an exciting finals series for sure.

Five talking points from AFL Round 23

Here’s another:
Wk1
Cats to beat Magpies
Eagles to beat Bombers
Giants def WB
Lions def Rich

wk2
WCE def Pies
Rich def GWS

Wk3
Cats def Rich
WCE def Bris

GF
Cats def WCE

Five talking points from AFL Round 23

You are a Pies supporter? I don’t think week two or three outcomes are likely, possible yes but not likely.

Five talking points from AFL Round 23

Good question to which there is no valid answer…………………..except that finals form, outcomes etc consistently surprise, yeah? Did you think Bris would win in 2001?

Good luck now to the final 8 teams. Well done on a great seaason. Prem winner? Brisbane.

Pathetic.

Hawthorn are not the best AFL club of the decade

What you suggest has been done a few times, as you may know. No one from Vic is going to give Sydney the recognition they deserve. Yes, such assessments are pretty subjective, which is another way of saying ˋdepends on your point of view´. To say that sides that get to play in their home city 15 times or more per season and most of those the GF venue have ˋfar better performed´ is a bit disingenuous in my view.

Hawthorn are not the best AFL club of the decade

He‘s right.

'The system's wrong': You'll never guess what Chris Scott is complaining about again

This is the Gilligan Effect that has been outed and discussed before. There are grave consequences to having a toenails boss. This admin has brought this comp down to NRL levels.

'Rorting the system': AFL blasted for Jaidyn Stephenson loophole

You’re right, list wise they are every bit as well placed as, say Brisbane, to improve quickly if a few things go right. Oh, did I mention Brisbane? Wow! I hope Swans can get to the same in another year or two.

Ross Lyon, the Bell tolls for thee

Hey Spruce, I do take your point, looking at you numbers in isolation I agree they seem low. 23 scoring shots, 18, 17 and 22.

However, looking at all the GF’s from 2000 to date, I’d point out the following:
Average #scoring shots of the winners is 27, not that much higher.
Ave #scoring shots of the losers is 21, around the same.
Ave diff is 6 scoring shots for 32 points.

Freo were def by just 15 points with the same #scoring shots as the winner.
St Kilda ave over the 3 games was 23 pts and only 4 scoring shots less than the winners (even accounting for the GF Replay numbers which were a blow out).

There are aberrations everywhere over these years, from shellackings and the opposite to less scoring shots winning games etc. Freo and St K had about average losing scores over that period………..they did lose yes, but in terms of scoring opportunity and actual margin, not any worse so than the losers of the other 15 games and better than many.

Reckon that is harsh…………in both cases. Having said that I think your point is that they should never have been in a position to lose either of them, hence your “poor game plan” reasoning. GF day is almost always a strange day, in my view it’s hardly a relevant measure of the capability of the best clubs.

Good article Josh. Lyon is to be respected as a coach and football person. But, Freo has underperformed and he has to be held accountable, perhaps in the company of others. I hope he comes back to gametime footy at some stage.

Ross Lyon, the Bell tolls for thee

All GF winners win “several……..blah blah” to get to and win GF’s. Saints and Freo are no different. As for the rest of your comment…………….your imagination buddy, not mine.
