    It was great to see Hanners looking positive for this game. You could see it from the first bounce. Suddenly he was right! I suppose we wiill never know what helped turn things around; the break, overcoming injury, whatever, but I like it!
    We have them where we want them, everything is going according to plan!

The trouble with winter is I am prone to chest infections so I probably won't go to wet, cold & windy night games. If the weather is decent I will. There comes a time when health comes first.
    That really is a bummer about winter given it coincides with footy season every damn year!

    Wolfy, you'd be better off moving to Melbourne and supporting Bombers, Saints and/or Bulldogs under the closed roof!

    And how did the last two messages pick up Wolfy and end up with KTigers?!

    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)

    Could Towers be our biggest "whipping boy come good" since McVeigh? He's not about to win the Brownlow but I think most people who want him on our list, which is a big improvement from where he was previously.
    Thinking back I am pretty sure that Jake Lloyd has copped a fair whipping from various forum ferals over the years since we drafted him . I seem to remember even last year he was under the microscope by a few RWOers
    Fair to say he would be one of the first picked each week this year.

    Outrageous! Sacrilege! And completely unnecessary. I know the forecast weather wasn't that great but last Thursday night's match turned out nearly balmy. There were not a few people in the crowd, male and female, wearing singlets! (Not me, I had a cold but I didn't rug up that much either.) Don't be deceived wolftone! An open ground in Sydney is still way better than a miserable Etihad in Melbourne. The last two weekends I've been swimming in the ocean. Last weekend I was in there for an hour at a time without any need for a wetsuit. Yesterday (and today) the weather's sublime. Sublime!

    To say nothing that you obviously don't want to be supporting the fairypuppies et. al.

    Notice Dan didn't get a vote from the coaches! Ouch!

    Not for the first time, KB made an arse of himself here: KB's Take | Dogs to bury the Swans' season tonight.

    Stats are ok for fantasy league but obvious do not give a true picture. I saw from the coaches points Jake Lloyd did not make the top 7 players in the Swans team last week. With 31 disposals at efficiency of 81%, only 2 clangers, 1 goal and top of fantasy pts for the team (122) it did not count in the coaches eyes. Fair enough, I suppose it shows that fantasy league points are great for judging players in fantasy league but not so good in real "life".
