I'm flying down this week to cheer the boys on in the flesh for the first time since the Geelong final.

We may have had a revolting year, but we need to show something on a national stage on Friday night against a team who can't buy a win. We need to win by 40+
What lol a team who can't buy a win who are above us on the ladder..a win by 5pts would be a miracle at this stage

I’d be a little worried about b dog and viney. On the other hand they’d be pretty easy to distract and run away from

Both would be confused by a milk crate
Don't disparage the milk crate in a fight - was used yesterday to pin down a knife wielding (alleged) murder in Sydney yesterday afternoon.

Yeah - good luck with that. I've passed on flying down for the game this year.

Yeah, I'd just be happy with any score higher than theirs at this point.

Looking back, this is our most winnable game since Carlton in Round 16 (who's form since makes it look like a reasonable win in itself) Dogs have been in good form and will be really close to pushing themselves into the 8, while we got to the Saints two weeks too late being a completely different team under Ratten.

Of course, if we weren't playing such putrid football, we'd have been a genuine chance to win all of those games, but we're Melbourne, so …

Yep, the Swans have been pretty poor this year but I’d be shocked if they were as lazy or turn up their toes under pressure as quickly as our team does. The game against the Pies on the weekend was winnable but we were unable and unwilling to dig in when it got tough.

Yeah, I'd just be happy with any score higher than theirs at this point.

There have been plenty of chances to get more wins on the board this year but they’ve just about given up. The lack of resilience in this group of players is troubling.

But we played a good half against Richmond... 🙈

So do we actually think we can win this game? Care factor is zero apart from being equal leader in 3 different footy tipping competitions and having no idea who to tip in this one.

It was a big day for the fans. After having a kick with their childhood heroes they took part in a Ho down as TJ treated the fans to one of the greatest jug solos of all time.
He was quite good at sucking on glass objects instead of blowing into them back in the day :$
