Is this a thing for 2021? I have not heard anything about this.
I got an email the other day: To get you back in the stands safely we’re introducing digital only access in 2021 via the Sydney Swans app. This means that no matter what this season brings we will be able to deliver your membership access right into the palm of your hands. Mobile membership cards allow us to quickly adapt in the ever-changing COVID-19 landscape while providing safe access to all our venues. Detailed instructions on how to access your mobile membership card will be available in the coming weeks.

Are you sure the problem isn't related to your phone? App works fine for me on both my Samsung tablet and Google phone.
It's more than likely my own security measures to stop data mining other stuff, which by the way should still allow it to work, but some apps have a complete meltdown when you tell them 'No'. I'll be fine Jewels, just annoying me at the moment.

Digital Membership Card via Swans app.
I'm all for it, but I want to ask if anyone else if having issues with the Swans app? Every since they completed the major update my ability to access the app has been intermittent at best. And that never happened before. I'm on a Samsung S10, there's no reason I should be having these type of issues.
I tap it to access and a black screen pops up and then it disappears and I'm left looking at my home screen again.
There's your problem ;)

I'm just hoping that we will actually get some games at the SCG this year to be honest. I'm still a bit of a noob when it comes to membership and I think I'm willing to pay up to 5 games at home. Which membership would give me decent views from the stand?
Depends what your preference is... some people like to sit directly behind the goals, other's like to sit close to the fence, others like to sit up high...

My preference is first tier, centre square facing east (no afternoon sun in the eyes...) and if you can afford it, gold or platinum will give you pretty good seating! Check out the SCG AFL seating map and it will tell you what your money will buy...

I love sitting up in the stands so I can look down the ground and see how the players spread. Undercover because getting wet is for cats & dogs:D

Overall I dont mind sitting up in the Bradman stand.. as long as I can get a good view of the whole action and seeing the structure and spread. I think Red will do me.

Anyways, just realised the community series only has one round of matches. Would have liked to go to the fixture that was in Blacktown but now that one is cancelled.

Just want to see the boys back in action.

Pretty sure Swans and Giants will organise an unofficial inter-club at some point, probably at tramway oval

I am loving the AFLW and can't wait until we have our own side, but this is a pretty compelling argument against adding new teams to the women's comp for the foreseeable future.

I tend to agree. It has been very noticeable to me that the aggregate skill level has been much improved in AFLW this year. After a few years of consistent training and skill attainment has the league in a good place but no need to rush other teams coming in to dilute the product just yet.

Although I guess you could argue that considering the league is young and there will be 18 teams eventually anyway, you may as well just get it going asap and get those initial years of development out of the way.

It took the VFA/VFL/AFL 110 years to have fourteen teams in the competition, and the women have tried to do it in 4 years. I guess time will tell. I watched a few of the NAB League Girls matches over the last few weekends, and they were already a noticeable improvement on those I watched in prior years. So maybe their plan to just back the competition's rapid growth will pay off. You would want to see continual improvement though.

Yeah they kind of hold it awkwardly, like it's a bomb they're scared will go off any minute. Some of the junior girls though look better already than the ones in the AFLW comp

John F Kennedy's assassination, the moon landing, Gough Whitlam's dismissal.
Events that we (of a certain vintage) remember where we were when we heard the news.
Moments that are remembered on their anniversary.
And yet yesterday one the truly great days in AFL history passed virtually without mention.
A day that brought our game to the masses like never before.
