Great thread by a great man


I remember the first time I actually got to see us live
Was 2004 v Melbourne at whatever dock lands was then. Good win and great to finally see us in the flesh.

I remember I was with some old friends of my wife’s family in the third tier, and she couldn’t watch, was scared she would fall onto the ground

2002 season had it all
- Pluggers comeback and then having a corky for the ages which kept him out for multiple weeks
- Cressa's after the siren goal after Shannon Motlops brain fade
- Dunkley and Kelly's retirement game smashing Richmond at Stadium Australia (and also the players getting behind Roos at the end of the game)
- Ricky Mott missing an easy set shot to beat Essendon at Stadium Australia (i remember being in tears after it), however that miss was the blessing in disguise as Rodney Eade got the sack after.

Oh and of course...this infamous game

I forever referred to that end of the ground as the Ricky Mott end. :p

I was gutted too. Sometimes it feels like you'll never beat a certain side (Pies and Crows under Roos etc)

Essendon basically hadn't lost to us since 96 (barring one freak win in 97). They always seemed to do us over. Ricky Mott, Alessio's kick after the Siren. Bah.

Anyway in 2005 we finally broke the duck and I remember MOL kicking a crazy goal that bounced forever to seal the win.

Ah 2005. The year of ending hoodoos.

I was down that end right behind the goals.

What 2018 Swans winning game will I watch tonight peeps?
I can’t watch our Hawks win, bad juju happens when I do that before another Hawks game.

Hit me with your top 2 games to rewatch. I need suggestions.
