Swans have been a bogey team for a long time. can't believe they were paying $4.30 when odds were set Sunday night 😲 Come in a bit now but still way too long. This is a genuine 50/50 game I reckon, will be very interesting to see how our defense goes with Tomlinson out.

Ironically I'd be more confident if this game was at the SCG - hopefully we rebound after a bad game against North and reset against a very well coached and structured side. Can't let Parker and Kennedy waltz it out of the middle like North did on Sunday. Looking for Hibberd to blanket Papley.

Good feeling about the swans here
Then you have a better feeling than me. If we don't improve in the middle around the ball Dees are going to smash us. Efficiency in front of goal was much improved last week but we can't keep losing every stat known to man and expect to keep winning.

Let's hope the lads ears are still burning from the fiery blast Horse hit them with at the end of the first quarter.

Fox & Rampe to come in down back I hope & Buddy up forward.

You're like me, and alot of Swans fans. We feel like this is far more winnable on the MCG then the SCG.

I think a good, tough, close game, with Melbourne in front at the end. This is the game where we find out if the dees are the real deal imo. The swans (and Franklin) have had the wood over Melbourne for a while now, this is the game Melbourne need to win to convince me of their premiership credentials, and win they will.

Which Swans show up? The Swans that lost to the Giants and Gold Coast? Or the Swans who beat Richmond & Geelong?

Which Melbourne shows up? The Melbourne who beat Richmond or the Melbourne who only just got over the Roos?

Beating Richmond and Geelong doesn't prove anything but beating the Swans does?
