Pretty ******* funny the swans blame umpires yet it was umpires that gave them the win last time.

What a doughnut bunch of supporters.
You can't deny we've had an absolute ride the last two weeks. But they cannot complain after last time we met.
In fact every time we play at the SCG it's just umpiring carnage against us, so nice for it to change direction..
Chew on it Swans..

Seriously, we’ve been getting reamed up there for more than a decade. Like we’ve been robbed directly of a win multiple times and other times our confidence has just been shot to pieces by said reaming.

As far as I’m concerned we’re owed a few more in our favour before the ledger is even close to square.

Look he did an okay job but chasing Parker around the outside as well stops him from finding the footy as much. His best form is matching up on the pure inside midfielders.
Agreed
By 10 minutes into the 4th he looked absolutely gassed, the cumulative effect of chasing Parker for the first 3 quarters.

Cunnington is not only the perfect match up for him, but key to the Roos' fortunes. If Clarke can nullify him by 30-40%, it goes along way to us pulling out the win.

Last game Cunnington got 29 disposals and 8 clearances but we blitzed them at the next contest with rapid speed while Scott had them choked up with a crappy tempo style and long bombing to a flailing Sideshow Bob...

The game before that was the infamous shootout and Stringer wave. Cunnington wasn't ran with as we weren't doing the tag thing and forcing turnovers at the next contest, he played quite well with 17 disposals to half-time but got severely let down by his other mids, got frustrated and started potting everyone including Jakey for the famous yap yap wave...

finally watching the replay. on TV, the scrappiness of our skills are telling.

Clarke is impressive though.
really like Parish's game
