    Yes, Undy, maybe they marked him up for elbowing Tom Mitchell in the head? Or maybe they got a bit confused and included some of Tom's stats in his stats?

    Yes, it's particularly irritating when they come from the wrong side of the mark and then bizarrely, the umpires then seem to think that this entitles them to stand a metre or two over the mark!?

    Is hasn't really been talked in the media or on here about but I feel Sam Mitchell was pretty lucky to not get rubbed out for that hit on Tommy, it didn't look great on the Tv

    I think that it was the right decision re Sam Mitchell

    Agree the hit was almost off to the judiciary on Tom though and would have most likely if a standard game with less niggle and intensity

    The swans and Hawks never stopped all night with the niggle.....I think it would have been unfair given Sam was cornered all night - body checks , grappling, head locks etc

    Brad Sewell is on the match review committee , and they have dropped the points based system in favor or an arbitrary one. Not hard to see where this will end up .

    Fairness doesn't apply to this area of AFL operations.

    Sam Mitchell has a left over easter egg in his locker and after every training session, he breaks a tiny piece off and eats it in front of his teammates. He's that sort of bloke.

    Phew, that was a bit closer than I expected... Welcome back 2012, my old friend! Finally, Swans' hierarchy might acknowledge our most recent premiership was no fluke after all. Oh, and for any Hawthorn apologists out there claiming they were unlucky to lose (again), yeah nah. Rioli fumbled and Reid didn't. That ain't luck, just playing better than your opponent at a crucial point in the game. Win enough of those moments and stats schmats, we triumph anyway! The sweetest victories are made of this.

    2. Sam Reid is a forward, not a backman

    3. McVeigh is a concern and defs should not be kicking out

    4. The Swans are playing like I'm sure they wish management were acting

    5. I'd love to see Buddy run through the Hawks huddle at 3/4 time ala Brereton
    Just like to again state my case for Reid as a forward.

    Starting to think that the Swans could do worse than swap Reid and Tippett through the ruck and FF
    If Nankervis continues to show the right stuff we may start to have a bit of a height problem...
    The difference between insanity and genius is measured only in success.
