    I think it was against Freo - all the players got around Roos at the end of the game while the crowd chanted Rooooooooooooooooooooooooooos....that was a real moment in the Swans Sydney history. How different things could have been if Wallace was leading the club.... think Richmond.

    A sliding doors moment.
    Was that the last game of the season? I remember we played Ricmond in the last game at ANZ and there was 43,000 fans and they all belted out ROOOOOOS after the game in a show of support.

    Looking back on 2002, Rocket and the swans were very unlucky not to have made the top 4 even.

    Some of those close games could easily have gone our way. There was like 7 games decided by under 10 points that we lost.

    I recall the first ever game at ANZ against the bombers and Mott missed a sitter directly in front and we lost by 2.

    The Cressa goal against the Roos on 2002 always has a special place in my heart..

    Wow, I think that was the first time I've seen footage of that Cresswell goal since it happened!

    Most significant moment would be the Leo Barry mark because it did win our first premiership in 72 years, but having had a few days to allow the premiership win to sink in, my vote went to Malceski's goal. What set this year apart for me was that this has been the highest level I have seen a Swans team play at consistently, and this year's grand final was arguably the best quality match out of the ones listed. I didn't see much of 1996 when we finished minor premiers, so that H&A season probably just nudges out this one, but in terms of achievement in finals, this year is hard to beat - we didn't really give the Crows or Pies a sniff as led throughout, and more than doubled our 2005 grand final winning margin!

    Davo for me. We were deadset gone, straight sets was on. The most significant individual quarter you could possibly imagine.

    I wonder what would have happened if we had lost that game. A win like that builds belief etc. We certainly wouldn't have been able to win 2005, would we have had the confidence to do what we did in '06? Would the club be as strong as it is today? Impossible to answer but what a great moment.

    What happened two weeks ago isn't far behind. Just total joy and to share it with all my family was pretty special.

    I realise that we wouldn't have been in the GF without Davo's magical quarter but I can't go past the actual Premiership win. Davo runs a close second.

    Leo's mark led to the best Swans related stated I have ever found myself in.

    I can't go past Nick Davis. One of the truly astonishing things I've ever had the privilege of witnessing, particularly being down that end two bays from the goals.

    Can't get away from the nominated top 5, whereupon I will go for the 2012 Premiership. My special mention is the Round 6 2003 win against Collingwood at Docklands.

    Agree...they all stand alone as spine-tingling,goosebump moments when the release of emotion comes out as tears and an undescrible feeling of euphoria.....re-watching them has got the blood pumping I can tell you

    2005 GF for me, mainly because of where I watched it.
    It was 5:30 in the morning in Rome and I watched it out the front of a very closed Druids Rock Irish bar. After some begging the night before, the bar staff agreed to leave the TV on and turned it to face the street so us footy fans could stand out the front and watch it. A cafe up the road (very thoughtfully) left all their chairs out the front, and another cafe nearby was still open selling beers. About 15-20 people were there, drinks were flowing and made for a great time.

    Later on in the day I remember singing 'Cheer Cheer the Red and the White' to a very confused 60-something American couple I met on a train a few days earlier.

    I had my Swans jumper on and a Collingwood fan bought me drinks all night (good Pies fans do exist!)

    Absolutely love it.
