    Vote for your favourite Swans moment since 1996

    One thing does that does resonate with me when I see lists like these is how lucky we are as a supporter group that we follow a club like this. While a strong heart is a prerequisite to follow this club I don't think any of use would have it any other way.

    I've used this quote before but it so applies to the Sydney Swans

    "The real glory is being knocked to your knees and then coming back. That's real glory. That's the essence of it." Vince Lombardi.

    Vince would have loved the Sydney Swans I reckon.
    ..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

    That ambulance at games isn't standing by for the players. It's for the Swans fans.

    To me 2005 was the watershed moment. Every other game we played as "Sydney" were just games of footy.
    2005 meant "@@@@, we can actually win these things".
    2006 was a disappointment. As much as the attitude of Roos afterwards which seemed to imply "well at least we won 2005" as an excuse.
    2012 meant 2005 wasnt an aboration, and that in itself is very pleasing.

    For me, the swans didnt get their infrastructure in place until start of 1995, and so the modern era can only be judged from that point forward.
    In the 18 season since, we have made 4 grand finals, and won 2. Thats an above average strike rate. In fact, in an 18 team comp, the average expectation is 2 grand finals and 1 flag.

    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)

    I was at 96 prelim & that was amazing but they were all amazing. At 2005 GF, I cried like a baby & at this GF I collapsed in my chair when we kicked the last goal. This poll is like trying to pick your favorite child.
    2005 will live forever (or until we win another premiership)

    GO BLOODS!!!!!!!!
