    At the start of the final quarter I thought the Dogs were going to make the scoreline more respectable, so tired did many of the Swans look. Full credit to them that they pushed through it and actually increased their lead.

    I've thought long and hard about posting this, for fear of hurting the feelings of the individual involved. But based on what I've read today, I think it's ok. (Let me know if you think otherwise).

    About 5 years back, a friend's kid had two swans come and visit his class (Matthews & Laidlaw, I believe). They were there to promote some government "healthy choices" initiative about eating vegetables or something. Here's how it went down..

    Swans: "So kids, do you know what happens if you don't eat right?"
    Kid: "Yep. You end up like Nick Davis".

    Hahaha, I reckon that's perfectly ok, in fact I reckon Nick himself would have a good laugh!

    Groovers!!
    What a tops game.

    Have I told you how much I love Jets?
    Have you met Ted?
    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.

    Loved Lewis RT's attack on the contest.
    Loved Shaw's run run run - his best game of the year by far, especially as he started out also responsible for the dangerous Dalhaus
    Loved how Hanners just kept going all game long. He doesn't do the flash but he's as relentless as they come.
    Loved Lewis J's dash, flair, skill, composure, modesty (most of the time).
    Loved Old Man Jude turning back the clock.
    Love Ted. Full stop.
    Absolutely Liz. So much to love.

    I was so glad TDL finally got a game NOT as the sub. He is a clever little forward - that first goal was classic cheeky reserves-grade chance taking. Not only puts 6 points on the board but really makes the opposition kick themselves.

    Excellent work, Lucky. Looking forward to your predictions for this week.

    Really, really impressed with Pyke. Gets the first touch, puts it where he wants it. Sticks his tackles too, though somehow I always think he looks like he's being rather delicate. I know it must be some kind of optical illusion but he looks like a big guy trying not to hurt the kiddies even as he pins them down mercilessly. (I know, probably just beer goggle related.)

    Smart kid.

    I heard another that with Swans coaching drills, you always worked to the simplest person. So if Luffy got it, everyone else was sure to get it.

    The great flood was to prevent the great comeback. We won by 80 points and you still can't please some people on here. Damn I'm mad we don't have one player with a mullet.

    Stay off RWO if we lose next week. The comments will be predictable. So put on the country music and fill up with the moonshine instead.

    You know the silliest thing about this? Luffy is 41 or 42 now, and he is STILL playing, in the Sydney comp. Love the nuff nuff.

    Yeah, I believe it was the boudour combo deal - Barry White and myself.
