Thread: Sam Newman's Blast against the Swans

  1. #1

    Sam Newman's Blast against the Swans

    On the footy show Sam really got stuck into the way the Swans play footy. Called our style of play a disgrace and that someone will make a civil suit against us for bringing the game into disrepute.

    Let's hope we bring our A game on the weekend!

    Sam is an idiot but who likes our 2007/2008 game plan?

    He says that every year...

    Old man Sam even said the Swans wouldn't make the finals in 2006...
    I support two teams: the SYDNEY SWANS and anyone who beats the West Coast Eagles... except Collingwood, Essendon, Carlton, Richmond, Hawthorn, St. Kilda, North Melbourne, Geelong, Melbourne, Western Bulldogs, Adelaide, Port Adelaide, Brisbane and Fremantle.
    Ok then, I only support one team: The SYDNEY SWANS!!!!!

    The hypocrisy of some posters on this site at times is astounding!!!!!

    So Sam says what has been said here all week and you have a go at him.

    Unbelievable hypocrisy.

    My feelings exactly. Prize nong.
    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)

    let's hope it has the same effect that the Demetriou pay out had back early in 2005?

    He's probably right.
    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.
    Blessed are the cracked for they are the ones who let in the light.

    I also find the Swans style of play at best frustrating.

    Best footy I've seen us play in ages was the first quarter last week - not because we were dominating, but because we played direct and exciting footy rather than the 'keepings off' footy.

    Then we slipped back to the monotonous, unexciting, and most frustrating style of play that we are used to and I became quite disinterested.
    And that is going to happen with the Swans.

    I accept that there is a reason for the style of play - to win games - and it's served us pretty well over the last few years (obviously in 2005) but there's no point in winning games that way if the club loses supporters.

    Something for the club to think about.

    In the end I agree with Sam.
    If I were commenting on a team other than the Swans I would be saying exactly the same thing.....
    The difference between insanity and genius is measured only in success.

    The bloke is a prize goose, but given the tripe that was served up by your lot on the weekend even the punters at the Courthouse Hotel would have to agree.....

    Good luck against the Hawks.

    If there was a prize for Dickheads, Sam would be competing at an Olympic level. But unfortunately, he's right.

    As has been said, we played a great 1st quarter last week. I was hoping we had come into 09 with a new plan. Alas, the same old, predictable, boring @@@@ that has been figured out by every other team returned for the remainder of the game. I'm all for whatever strategy wins (And I have been a vocal supporter of our tactics in the past), but when it's no longer winning us more games than we lose, then it's time to change up those plans.

    Wake up Roos. Wake up Swans.

    Sam has always been bitter about the 05 semi final loss that Geelong had against the swans. As a keen watcher of the footy show every week, this is nothing new from Sam. He's been making those kind of comments about the swans since 05. Wouldent pay much attention to them.

    Sam is spot on. Our game plan is ridiculous, sides know how to counter it.

    The way to win games is to move the ball quickly so that sides can't flood. You don't see Hawthorn or Geelong chipping it around sideways and backwards.

    Sam knows what he's talking about.
