    Huh??? Never mentioned being scared. Although the Collingwood women do frighten me a bit.
    ..And the Swans are the Premiers...The Ultimate Team...The Ultimate Warriors. They have overcome the highly fancied Hawks in brilliant style. Sydney the 2012 Premiers - Gerard Whately ABC

    It's a bit different in Sydney with the pathetic atmosphere. But sitting in the rain at Subi and watching the Swans win a close one is unbeatable. Anyone who has done this will testify.

    However, losing while sitting in the rain = worst thing ever.
    Stark raving bl**dy mad, barmy as a Bombay Bellringer. No way you'd get me out in the rain all day I sit in the stands, did all the hard stuff when I was a kid following Glenelg (The Bays/Tigers). I won't be there today lots of expenses this week can't afford to go but will be at ANZ for the game against the Pies

    I'll be in my usual spot - very outside in the front row on the 50 metre arc, getting soaked. Hopefully it will be a better result than the last wet SCG Tigers game at the SCG that I remember (2004?) when Richo finally found his mojo. God that was soggy and depressing.

    Today I hope I've got rain on my teeth as we win by 100.

    The trusty plastic poncho means you're covered from head down to shins, so you stay dry in a downpour and even cosy because it's windproof as well. Which is good when you win ...

    We'll be in our wet seats on the boundary line. Is there any way you can get into the stands if our membership seats are on the boundary line? Any way you can sneak up?

    Not until about 5 minutes before the game.


    (says me planning to arrive 10 m before, and hoping janem doesn't take the last dry seat at the back of the Trumper)

    Thanks for that.
    Do they let you up or do you really have to "sneak"?
    I know my dad in Adelaide buys a child's ticket on rainy days. He uses his membership ticket to get into the ground and the $2.50 child's ticket to get into the stands. That is a bit cost prohibitive here as SCG children's tickets are $24!

    PS We are in the Brewongle so you are safe.

    We'll know if we're going to get a decent crowd by how many are in the Victor Trumper stand. That's where most of the opposition supporters tend to sit.

    I predict we'll get a crowd of about 25,000.
