    Squiggle has us missing the 8 now. If we had a big win over the Suns, we could possibly have been 4th!

    Looking on the bright side, if this happens it helps a hell of a lot in the draft.

    Hopefully by about Wednesday or Thursday I'll be agreeing with you, but still a bit down over it today I'm afraid.

    When you drop one you should win you just have make up for it, I feel we did that a few times this year by winning away

    Beat essendon and Collingwood and puts us back on course

    Former Swan and Crow Lewis Johnston has been in red hot form for Norwood. The once powerful marking key forward, now playing in a link man role, amassed 37 disposals, nine marks, seven inside 50s and one goal in their convincing win against West Adelaide. This is the second match in three weeks Johnston has secured 36 or more disposals. The 27-year-old has been a consistent performer, not dropping below 21 possessions this season. He has also managed five games this season with at least 10 marks.

    I wish clubs did their own sites independently from the afl

    Essendon used to be the best when they ran theirs

    I didn't know they were run by the AFL, but that would explain the poor search engine, the complete lack of updating data on players (like debut dates) and a whole bunch of other stuff.

    I only use the swans app on iPad, there's less advertising and easier to navigate.

    Would be nice for AFL clubs to have beat writers like they do in the NBA and NFL.

    Some are biased but alot of them actually know what's going on at their respective teams and are knowledgeable.

    My pet hate is when a story written by one bloke, say Wu, is re-issued under multiple titles, giving the impression that lots of journalists see it the same way.

    The whole thing stinks!

    Or the media with a narrative, then acts like it’s public opinion

    Locket - I reckon he has lived the most interesting life, and after he left St Kilda, it appears to have been mostly on his own terms. He's maintained a marriage and raised four (?) kids whilst being a superstar. He's refused to allow media into his life, and has steadfastly kept his feet on the ground. I'd ask him if laughed about the pig, did he fear for his safety when he kicked his 1300th, when did he realise that he was going to break the record, what were Paul Kelly and Paul Roos like to play with? Was the preliminary final win his favourite Swans moment...

    Let's face it, he wouldn't be able to shut me up!
