    Hey lowerjup, they should be good to great seats... enjoy! Probably not the right/best place for this question (but not wrong I don't think either!). I think you might get more responses if you post in the thread called: Posts that don't deserve a thread (random opinion or questions)

    Enjoy your seats! :D

    Hey guys, I've been lurking this board for several years now :$ but thought I finally introduce myself to everyone...

    1. Where are you from?
    Sydney

    2. Why did you start supporting the Swans?
    I watched a few Swans games on TV in mid 90’s (I grew up as a Balmain Tigers supporter). I was invited to games by my AFL mad mates in the early 2000’s and to experience a game live got me hooked!

    3. How long have you been supporting the Swans?
    A Swans club member since 2005, prior to this I’d always use my mate’s spare pass from his SCG membership to go to games.

    4. Favourite players (current)?
    Josh Kennedy, Hannebery, Buddy, Parker, Heeney, Grundy

    5. Favourite players (all time)?
    Goodes, O’Loughlin, Captain Kirk, LRT, Schneider

    6. Favourite Swans memories?
    The obvious ones - ’05, ’12 Grand Finals wins, the ’05 Semi against Geelong…but last year when the entire club & fans rallied behind Goodes….the standing ovation at the SCG in the Adelaide game in that 3rd qtr, I’ve never been prouder to be a supporter of the club.

    7. Where were you for the 2005 GF?
    Fortunate enough to be sitting high up in the partially completed Olympic? stand at the MCG. We also happened to stay in the same hotel as the Swans in 2005 and wished some of the boys good luck on the day!

    8. Favourite piece of Swans memorabilia that you own?
    Just memories…I have a few things signed and some photos taken with players, and a heap of merchandise :D

    Hey guys. My name is Brad. I found these forums recently and I look forward to discussing how we can piss Eddie and Co off for many years to come as well as talking footy with fellow bloods.
    1. Where are you from?
    I'm from Canberra but moved to Melbourne 3 years ago.
    2.Why did you start supporting the Swans?
    My dad went for the Swannies but the more I learned about the bloods culture the more I was hooked!
    3.How long have you been supporting the Swans?
    Since I was 8 years old.
    4. Favourite players (current)?
    So many to choose from. The standouts are Buddy and JPK but Aliir has grabbed my attention since his debut. He's going to be a star.
    5. Favourite players (all time)?
    ROK, JPK, Goodesy and Kennelly. Loved his Irish dance after 05 GF.
    6. Favourite Swans memories?
    05 and 12 at the top of the list. Lost my bundle both times lol. Also the Geelong game this year after the stuff with Kieren's family. The whole club was brilliant that week and on the night.
    7.Where were you for the 2005 GF?
    At my Nan and Pops place in Canberra. Pop is a lifetime Carlton fan btw and was happy we won. When the siren went was the best feeling in the world and the whole neighbourhood heard me lol.

    Proper city fans are decent tbf. We have a mutual hatred of Utd too :) Our game on NYE is going to be special IMO. Thanks for your welcome mate and up the bloods!!

    Names Jared. Been a fan since 03ish....cant really remember. Starting supporting them because I was born in Penrith. Was western scum for 4 years. Now live in Melbourne, but used to live in Perth. Don't really get emotional at games, which my GF (Geelong supporter scum) thinks it's weird. Except for when Jones gets done for holding the ball against the bullfrogs. Goodes was my favorite player. Now not sure. 2012 I was at my house with mates, shocked we won. 2005 I was doing celebratory rolly pollies in my wce mates lounge. Used to hate Franklin, but now I'm in awe.

    Joined cause I need to vent.

    I know im on almost 50 posts but still haven't introduced myself to all my fellow swannies fam, shoutout to ya all ;)

    I'm 27, live in south west sydney. my background is European, we moved to Australia in 1994.
    come from a family passionate about football (soccer), basketball and water polo but me.. im
    unlike anyone from my entire fam, naturally i just love sports in general. anyway, i was roughly
    like 5 or 6 years old couldn't even speak English yet and basically everything down under was
    at the time completely new to me. anyway, so one day I was flickin through our old as ****
    analog box of a tv and there it was, some sort of sport game, something absolutely amazingly
    beautiful that i just could not take my eyes off, i instantly, literally fell in love with from that
    day while in no time i discovered this was AFL!! i was playing soccer for a southern district
    team so i remember at trainings i get there pick up the soccer ball in my hands and im runnin
    on the field, bouncing the ball, steppin around team mates, hand balling to myself lol and kickin
    footy goals through the soccer goal lol. I was that obsessed id take every chance anywhere i
    could to get into my afl mode. wanted a footy ball badly my and mum gets me one when we
    went down to flemington markets made me the happiest cvnt ever. walked to school each
    morning carryin the footy with me. recess/lunch couldn't come quick enuff before i hit the oval
    to play. loved it back then and love it now more than ever.

    i always root for the team where im from/at. it was always Sydney Swans <3 i liked plugger,
    paul kelly and goodsie BUT my favourite swannies player of all time is michael o'loughlin.

    probably unnecessary post this long ill just cut it here ~ Sydney Swans are in my blood BLOODS forever :)

    Belated 50 post ago "welcome to the boards" mate.

    Great story & like so many others from non-AFL background. The game has a way of exciting like no other IMO.
