    Loved him as a forward, still do. Whenever he's thrown forward he manages to kick a goal or two.

    Melbourne based Swans supporters are much better looking than Sydney based fans.

    I annoys me when people think because you support a city's sports team you are from that city or are connected to that somehow. While I may barrack for the Swans I didn't grow up going for walks around Darling harbour or Lake oval. It's just one of those little things that shouldn't annoy me but does...

    I've had people try to troll me by calling the Swans "South Melbourne" but I'm not from Sydney, so it's not very effective.

    Being from Sydney, what suburbs made up the South Melbourne heartland? I've seen the thread on club heartlands, but the maps only show the current Vic teams, they don't show the traditional South Melbourne suburbs.

    Albert Park and Port Melbourne area has a fairly strong Swans connection for memory. My parents grew up in the Clayton area, pretty sure around Noble Park was our zone at some stage.

    South Melbourne, Albert Park, Middle Park probably even into StKilda, Port Melbourne, Garden City, StKilda Rd was a few hundred meters from Lakeside, Sth Yarra/Prahran, even the CBD.. It is the best location in Victoria for a sporting precinct and a premier football ground, its a travesty that it was South that was relocated.

    I don't know why you would consider it a troll I am proud when someone says that.

    I actually find the opposite here in Melbourne, someone asks me who I support and when I reply "Sydney Swans" they give me that look, yeah you all know that look... until I qualify it with "born and bred in South Melbourne mate" then their whole facial expression changes and you get that football supporters respect.

    Victorian football supporters and their beliefs can be strange sometimes, its like a religion.

    How much free merchandise do the players get? Like 2 training guernseys? Unlimited supply? Grab 50 hoodies for instance?

    I actually thought it a normal first question here in Vic wherever you go and whoever you meet, especially from those wearing colours, a cap, a sticker whatever..

    We play our best Footy when we are running hard and carrying of the HB ( big part of our game ). Rohan has spent a month now in the 2s off the HB and yesterday his spoiling and defensive side to his game was good , also he has a long a very neat kick. If the leg is right and his fitness is up to running out a full game at senior level and form is worthy of selection I think he should come back in ( when ready ) as it would add even more pace and carry from our back half where we normally set up our counter attack from. I have noticed Mal has been playing off the wing this year a little more and pushing forward , so I would love to see him and mal rotating HB/wing , would cause opposition teams grief. U cant stop Mal , Rohan , Shaw , Rampe all at once even Laidler has been getting better so it could be very demerging.

    Shaw looked tired

    I think we need to be more willing to rest guys like malceski shaw etc and try a rohan off half back

    Rotate mid guys out, maybe take the subs vest one week

    Geelong have been masters of managing minutes
