Hi all. I know we tend to not have too much discussion on our board once we're out of the running, but I'll put this up for anyone who wants to discuss anything about this year's GF.

Good, bad, indifferent - kudos and backhanders - chuck it all in here.

Remember the last time a team from Sydney won a Prelim by one point against Collingwood, then played the favourites the following week?

Hard to see the Cats getting beaten, but as long as the Swans can stay close, you never know.

Tbh it’s worst case for me. Don’t really like either team but I’ll be going for the swans because a win will affirm the strength of that game plan/style and I hope we adopt it

I think the Swans are in far better shape going into this than we were in 2019. We were pretty well out on our feet after the SF and the PF.
Interesting Leon was on Crunch Time on SEN Saturday reflecting on that game.

As well as Davis he said that DeBoer, Corr and Kennedy were all in super bad shape and ideally would not have played but said the only option available was to pick 4 first gamers (not sure who).

Is my memory failing me? I thought Keeffe was fit and ready to go after a very strong performance in the PF, but was left out for the crippled Davis.

Wash your mouth out and then drink a bottle of bleach to clean it out
I’m trying, just not with bleach.

How good is this lol This club who piss on us think they are better than us think they own the game in Sydney (nsw) getting destroyed on the biggest day. Couldn't be happening to a better bunch.

Yet still carry on about being South Melbourne.

Though they have gone all in on Sydney, our board could learn from that.

I wanted the swans to win as a nod to the way they play footy. Love their game plan and want us to have something similar
