    We noticed the black arm band too.
    Mainly because we only noticed recently that he wasn't wearing one a week or 2 ago.

    When Tippett returns he should stay, add something different and is a beast around the ground.

    Most importantly, he has a bit or mongrel, which is one thing I think we lack.
    Toby was in everything.
    It was funny when he handballed to Heeney assuming he'd have a ping for goal, but got cornered and gave it back to Toby who was then forced to have a rare kick. He missed.
    He also started the play that led to his bump on Fisher and Buddy's goal, with a crunching tackle in the middle of the ground where the ball spilled free.

    I have been saying it for a while, he is a footballer. He may not be the quickest but he knows how to read the game and be where he should be. Even though he may make way for Tippo the confidence and experience he has gained will be invaluable for himself and the Swans.

    We do not receive many suspensions but are hard at the ball which means we do it the right way in my opinion.

    We have been like this for a long time. We tend not to remonstrate with the opposition and give the umpires a spray. Just get on with it.

    True, but in the 2014 GF Hanners was targeted by the hawks and our big men did nothing.

    If they want to try that stunt again, we need to stand up and dish out some punishment of our own!

    They did the same thing this year in Melbourne when Mitchell forearmed him to the throat. Hannebery made a point of remonstrating with Mitchell but when he recovered had the discipline to just go about winning the game. It was a great example of why I love this team and hate Hawthorn
