Been posting a little lately so thought I'd do the formal intro!

1. Where are you from?

Grew up in Newcastle, now live down in Melbourne.

2. Why did you start supporting the Swans?

As a first generation AFL supporter I started supporting Sydney as they were the closest team geographically to where I lived as a kid so it made sense at the time.

3. How long have you been supporting the Swans?

Since I was about 8 years old, so a little over 20 years now.

4. Favourite players (current)?

Mills, Buddy, Heeney and Kennedy are a few that spring to mind

5. Favourite players (all time)?

Adam Goodes for his flexibility across the ground in multiple positions and all-round x factor in important moments.

6. Favourite Swans memories?

2012 grand final in a pub in Newcastle with only about 10 other people watching the game and going off my head in the last quarter.

7. Where were you for the 2005 GF?

Late in high school for me so probably at a band practice..

Howdi all, Hashdag here, swanophile dad joke lover and keenly interested in list management.
1. Where are you from? Born in Melbourne and moved to Sydney in ‘92. Had followed Essendon up to this point. Did the standard Aussie stint in London in the mid ‘00s.
2. Why did you start supporting the Swans? Went to my first game in ‘92 and and then to most (losing games) that season and in 93 and 94. Still considered myself a dons supporter with a swans soft spot until the 96 final when plugger kicked his famous point. Halfway through that game I took off my dons jersey when i realised my true allegiances, and haven’t looked back more (drugs crisis) or less (2000 dons premiership) since!!!!
3. How long have you been supporting the Swans? Read the novel I wrote above.
4. Favourite players (current)? Buddy, Hewett, Grundy and Hayward.
5. Favourite players (all time)? Goodes, Kirk, Bayes, Buchanan, plugger and Kelly.
6. Favourite Swans memories? Pluggers point. And the win over Port Adelaide in the QF in 2003 when Goodes was amazing and Bazza correctly predicted his Brownlow.
7. Where were you for the 2005 GF? At the ‘G in the standing room section.
8. Favourite piece of Swans memorabilia that you own? Footy signed by a certain number 4 and 14.

First of all, I just wanted to introduce myself on here. I'm a huge league fan but have always been on and off AFL until recently and am looking to get into following the Swans for the 2019 season.

1. Where are you from? Redfern, Sydney (if that wasn't obvious)
2. Why did you start supporting the Swans? Hometown team and I've been a supporter from the outside looking to get in the thick of it!
3. How long have you been supporting the Swans? On and off since 2005 but looking to get into it this coming off-season!
4. Favourite players (current)? Heeney, Buddy, Aliir
5. Favourite players (all time)? Goodes, O'Loughlin (generic I know)
6. Favourite Swans memories? 05 GF, 12 GF, O'Loughlin giving it to the West Coast fans in 06. Not a favourite memory but one that I remember the most was the disappointment after the 06 grand final. That always stuck with me.
7. Where were you for the 2005 GF? At home watching on the tv with family.
8. Favourite piece of Swans memorabilia that you own? Don't own anything...yet. But love the design of the Indigenous jersey.

Hello, I'm from reddit and decided to check bigfooty out.
1. I was born in Sydney but I currently live in Melbourne.
2. I was so young I can't completely remember. It might have been the colours or the mascot. Either way it worked out because I was born in Sydney.
3. 2010, I lost interest in footy from 2011 to 2016 but jumped back on board last year.
4. Buddy Franklin
5. Tony Lockett, Nick Davis or Leo Barry
6. Last years after the siren win against Essendon.
7. I was only four so I don't remember.
8. I have a normal bar scarf but it's special to me because I got it back in 2010 when I was in Grade 2.

So after going through everyone's post I feel bad for never having posted here before

1. Where are you from? Inner West Sydney
2. Why did you start supporting the Swans? I don't think I ever had a choice in it. My dad, brother & sisters all support the Swannies too
3. How long have you been supporting the Swans? Member since '96 but have been going since as long as I remember. We could just get in for free prior so never bought a ticket
4. Favourite players (current)? Papley, Aliir, Heeney
5. Favourite players (all time)? LRT, Malceski, Schwass
6. Favourite Swans memories? In no particular order: Goodes' first Brownlow; beating Carlton in round 13 96; The crowd chanting "Carey's a w***er" at a home game some time in the 90s; Rohan's winning goal after the siren against Essendon; the '05 Grand Final; the '12 Grand Final; Creswell scoring the winning goal after the siren in '02; Ronke kicking 7 against the Hawks
7. Where were you for the 2005 GF? My dads place watching the game
8. Favourite piece of Swans memorabilia that you own? One night at a charity event there was a live auction for a signed Sydney Swans ball which had the whole teams signatures. It was at a beer festival so needless to say I was pretty drunk. Well I ended up spending about $1200 on it. Very much regret spending that money on it...... That or the Swans Guernsey I got for my dog and had to sow it so it fits him properly.
