    True, but we can only beat who we play and we SHOULD of beaten the saints. The next 4 weeks will tell, win at least 2 of them and we are gonna be right in the mix IMHO

    No!. (With all due respects). Sydney is $17 to win the flag, fair odds.

    So, let's celebrate these nice moments, knowing the likelihood that this is not going to be flag year. (I hope I am wrong about my last point).

    I am sure that there were fans back in 1934 during the middle of the season, when South head the ladder, who were 'sensibly' saying the same thing::"Keep a lid on it" . Not too many lived to see 24th September 2005.

    I try to take my Dad to each game in Melbourne. His uncle took him to see South and Carlton in 1934. He has followed the Swans ever since.
    A great day in 2005 ! He waited all those years and took myself and my brothers along for the (very long) ride.
    He said again as we left Etihad a few weeks ago ..... can't get over how many little kids are Swans suppporters..

    Enjoy the ride. Enjoy every moment.
