    If you are going to have a rant about Victorians its probably a good idea to learn to spell properly or we will give you the boot.

It's non-Victorian you wankers.

    If the Grand final ever does get moved from the MCG you'd expect a riot. Whether you like them or not at least the NRL is willing to share its showpiece event.
    Wow what a revelation. All my life I was lead to believe that Sydney was the centre of the universe.

    I thought this forum was to discuss about the Swans and the game, but all it is about now is putting each other down, having an Us vs Them mentality about everything from NSW v VIC, SYD V GWS, SCG V ANZ, hardcore v non-hardcore.. So over it.

    Fair point Damien.
    It's just we all get a bit frustrated by the media's Melbourne Centric views.

    Let's move on to Round 2 then!!

    How crap is it that there is no footy in Sydney this weekend when they get to play everywhere else in the country?
    "It's up to the rest of the players in the room to make a new batch of premiership players next year," Adam Goodes, triple Bob Skilton Medallist, October 7, 2011.

    YOU BETCHA!!!!!!

    Yeah , i thought the whole idea of having GWS was that there would be a game in sydney every week. Looks like the AFL have already failed that little promise!!

    Well i picked up yestersday herald dumb whilst waiting in line at coles to have a quick look at the sport..ok there were articles about the game..but the back page had a pic and the main leading story was about some VFL player. I just checked it back in the stand and nodded my head.

    With the articles posted in this htread and comments given..i don't get it..we want the code to expand and grow down here BUT at the same time we don't want it to leave Victoria at all.
    Go figure.

    Spot the error, not as bad as calling Bird 'Smith' for both his goals but nonetheless for a professional media outlet it's pretty poor.

    Love the caption which says the giants went down fighting..playing 18 men behind the ball for nearly 2 quarters is not going down fighting..it's called being scared of a massive blow out.

    Last time i checked 61 points was a thrashing..I think GWS has to be the first side in history that was flogged but played awesome footy all 4 qrts.

    They got flogged, will get flogged again and again this season. Maybe their "engineered for success list" will win a flag or two in 5 years but please enough of the gushing.
