    Flights and accommodation booked ????. My mum is coming and it will be only her second game in 30 years! The last game she went to was a final against Collingwood at the MCG and that scared her off!!

    I am planning to get Category 1 tickets.
    1. Is it better to sit on the ground level or the level above?
    2. Is there a way to make sure I sit with swans supporters and not North?

    Above ground, sit on level 4 if you can get them.

    Are you a swans Member? If so, buy during the members period and they should put you in a Swans bay I think.

    Sydney should be too consistent for the Roos in preliminary final

    "Swans by 28 points" I'll take that Rohan Connolly

    They can't really give him a rap over the knuckles without him being suspended. Even if it's Negligent (1 pt), Low impact (1 Pt) and High (2 Pts) - that's 125 points plus 10% gives him 137.5 plus 41 carry over gives him 171.5 less 25% for an early plea gets him back to 128.1. Which is a week. (The points could be worse for him if they calculate the 10% loading AFTER they add on the 41 carryover points) So harvey's only hope is an insufficient force ruling which when Selwood was on and off the ground trying to stop the bleeding is a bit of a stretch.

In recent years the Tribunal DVD has proposed that a clash of heads when one player elects to bump an opponent should be regarded as having been caused by circumstances outside of the control of the player which could not reasonably be foreseen. The 2014 guidelines will reinforce to players their duty of care when they elect to bump an opponent, and that a clash of heads is an action that could reasonably be foreseen."
    I meant "end of 2013" in first para above.

    Having looked at the incident again, I think Harvey is in trouble. It's hard to argue insufficient force if the Selwood is bleeding and forced from the field. You would think that would at least constitute Low Impact. He also jumped into Selwood, left the ground with both feet, and it was off the ball. But who knows.

    I want to add that the PA Freo game was so entertaining. One of the best games of the season. It's really enjoyable when you can relax because you don't have any skin in the game.
