I've never gotten why the SCG sprinklers were supposed to help us in 2005. I didn't even know it was supposedly the Swans idea until I came to BF years later. Until then I'd seen in the news that Geelong had complained about the hardness of the centre square.

Geelong were definitely the ones who asked for it (despite what the trolls on the main board said).

Geelong asked for the SCG to be watered before Friday night's semi-final but no one told the Swans, it was confirmed yesterday.

The AFL defended its actions in ordering SCG curator Tom Parker to soften the ground at the request of Geelong, which involved watering only hours before the game.

But AFL ground operations manager Jill Lindsay admitted she should have given the Swans a courtesy call.

The Swans were furious that the ground was so wet, with coach Paul Roos saying it was in a disgraceful state.
