Yeah LRT started like a house on fire! He’s certainly a different cat but he’s not the Adam Heuskes type cat.LRT got robbed too don't forget. Sometimes the medal doesn't go to the clear "best" IMO but maybe on some other basis... I guess...
(Btw, I miss LRT, what a gun.)
Fossie for meAmon Buchanan deserves a mention as a possible Norm Smith candidate in '05. Just about everything he touched turned into something good for us.
The other thing though: if O'loughlin had have kicked straight, he would have won it hands down. He dominated that game but just couldn't finish off his opportunities.
Imagine telling someone at the start of 2005 that the Swans would be premiers and that LRT, Fosdike, and Buchanan would be contenders for the Norm Smith.
Yet he says West Coast are building nicely. Probably wrote it before last weekend.
He said today that he did that before the weekend and judged on us being a finalist last year
Needs to switch the Carlton rating with us not sure how we have had a worse season than Carlton?
Though I will say we didn't really play like finalists last year. If anything I feel like we've played better this year than last, but haven't managed to fluke as many wins.He said today that he did that before the weekend and judged on us being a finalist last year
Terrific points in both your posts.I think there was about 4-5 games we won that we probably should've lost. I'm expecting this year to get to around 10-11 wins.
It's PC going crazy once again, this country is stuffed by it . Totally agree about the swearing , but calling them green maggots or bald flog has been going on for decades . Time for fans to fight back and i'm also thinking Vlad was better than the St Scum flog in Gill.This is a safe place, right?
Reading a lot of the posts on the mainboard I'm still blown away with how many supporters think that anti-social behaviour is some enshrined right when it comes to the footy. I'm all for barracking and please do it as loud as you want to but if I'm there with my kids don't think it's "all part of the theatre" to drop F-bombs and C-bombs every two minutes then abuse supporters around you when they give you a dirty look. Even with no kids there why is it considered acceptable at all? If you did it on a street corner you'd be one for being a public nuisance.
People are losing their minds because the AFL is starting to draw a line in the sand around this. Maybe I'm a snowflake but I think we could do with a rethink about what's good barracking and what is just straight out anti-social behaviour.
