    Let me ask you a general question about being a member of different clubs.

    Suppose the Swans are drawn to play Port Adelaide at the SCG on the same day as GWS are drawn to play Collingwood out at Homebush. Which game would you choose to attend, if timing or other commitments prevented you from attending both?

    Love this question!!!

    Torn between two lovers, feeling like a fool. Loving both of you is breaking all the rules.

    Tape GWS and watch the Swans of course!! Priorities come in to it. And I can quite frankly admit that I have red and white retinas; same as most. But if it was a day game and an evening one, on the same day, then both.

    It is almost certain they won't be fixtured that way. We can expect one team to be playing at home when the other is away, as happens with the SA and WA teams.

    What a relief.

    But I can't help thinking that if you're a Swans member who's prepared to invest in some sort of GWS membership, at some stage you're going to develop an emotional attachment to them.

    You would have to be happy when they beat every other team, except the Swans. And if we lost Reid to them, and he kicked the winning goal for GWS against any team other than the Swans, I can't see how, as a GWS member, you'd be unhappy with that.
    Wow, I wonder if crows and port supporters think like that as cross town rivals, or freo and eagles? I think not, personally though I really hope it can work for them because they will be up against it and it is a huge gamble by the AFL but on the other hand I hope we beat GWS to a pulp when we play them.

    If they hold memberships for both clubs, they probably do.

    Both teams in those respective States share one stadium.
    We won't be sharing an oval with the bogans, so there's no reason why they couldn't put two games on at the same time in Sydney.
    Separate the men from the boys.

    For broadcast reasons alone, they won't even schedule two matches (non Vic of course) from the one state at the same time. Anyway, even if it were hypothetically were to happen I still fail to see the point of the question. Maybe some fans will rank one team higher than the other, some may elect to go to a Swans game this time and then the Giants the next time a clash happens. Doesn't mean they can't be members/supporters of both teams.

    Not a million to one chance that Sydney and GWS will be playing at the same time, other than against each other.

    But to humour you, what are Port and Collingwood's ladder position at the time of these hypothetical games that will never happen? What are the Swans and GWS's ladder positions and what part of the season is it? Do either team need to win to make the 8? Do I still get free travel to Homebush with my gameday ticket and will it still cost $20 to park at Moore Park?
