    Nahhh, they would have collapsed under the pressure but then again Eddie would have probably told the AFL the Giants deserve to play their final at Spotless :-(

    If we win Week 1, that will lock us in for a Friday night prelim at the SCG. Better leave work early, the traffic will be an all-time, worst ever nightmare...

    Like a few other folks, at the beginning of the year I thought we were a 5-8 side. All I have to say is that we have done an amazing job achieving the minor premiership. Horse, Kirk, the leadersheap team and many others have done an A-grade job keeping the Swans competitive and dominant throughout the year. Smashing the Tigers (our bogey team) at home was the cherry on the cake. Got me singing a football chant throughout the weekend haha.

    SAY WHAT!
    We are top of the league say we are top of the league!*

    Presumably this chant is delivered in a deep gravelly shriek accompanied by low-tuned distorted tremolo bass?

    Since 1897, the Swans have finished on top of the ladder 9 times (including this year).

    In those other 8 years, the Swans have played off in the decider all 8 times (though the first three occasions were under a finals system where the Minor Premier had an automatic right to play in a decider). We have won 2 premierships (1909 and 1918) and been runners up 6 times.

    It has been 98 years since we finished on top and won the flag in the same year. I think it's time we broke that streak.
