If Crameri doesnt play, then that would even up the match imo.

Sorry I thought at least windowlicker, hille and Hurley would be back. Still....the our forward line is running on fumes. Top 5 goal kickers from last year are gone

We definitely have an advantage, and the eagles are certainly ripe for the picking.

Melbourne matches are so much worse to watch than both GWS and GC matches. At least there's an insight to the future with them. There is no talent at Melbourne. Absolutely fuck all. Clark is their best player easily and they had to pay big bucks for him.

Can't believe Anselm thought that list had more talent than Freo's. Freo are shit, but you are on fucking crack.

To be fair to you Tom, the way they were progressing two years ago, most of us thought they were on track to challenge around 13-14...

There is something wrong at that club...

This draft is pretty important for them - with 3 first round picks, they have the chance to rescue things but you can't help but think they will fuck it up.

I would have thought with a very young list, and little experience, they should have bought in a really experienced coach. Im not sure Neeld is the right man to take them forward

They probably couldn't get an experienced coach, they are broke remember.

Wasn't Tom Scully one of their #1 picks?

Pretty scrappy game.

Suns have just kicked a couple, though.

changing of the guard indeed.

Got tickets to Essendon Weagles match. In impeded viewing but. Got to row M which was as low as possible. Fingers crossed it's ok. Goes back to row X so I think should be fine.

Is it the perspective of the camera or does manuka have a fucking HUGE wing?

Dont worry about your seats, just go and stand in front of a bar somewhere in the standing area.

Well in GWS, great passionate rendition of the club song - well deserved, they havent been the big easy beats this year.

Add Richmond to the list of bogey teams for the Swans along with Adelaide.

Strange day today - Adelaide smashing the Cats, GWS getting their first win, Richmond smashing the Swans (although I had a feeling it was going to happen).

Swans need Mummy back quick or at least get Mike Pyke in, Seaby's pretty ordinary and not as nimble as the previous two. Hopefully TDL gets a few more games, I like him as a player.

Judging by the stats it was a woeful game by both sides. God it's hard being a Swans supporter :L

West Coast utterly destroyed in the clearances. 42-24 is embarrassing from a potential top four side.

Bellchambers got his hand to the ball 4 out of 5 times, and generally to advantage. Stanton, Watson, Zaharakis 100 possessions between them.
