    Agreed.
    I would have put Lloyd down for having a better season (based on my highly valued opinion )

    A curious fact ... the Swans have had fewer scoring shots than their opponents in all six Grand Finals they have played in since relocating to Sydney. Sydney have won two premierships by kicking straight.

    2005 - 8.10 (58) vs West Coast 7.12 (54) - 18 scoring shots to 19.
    2012 - 14.7 (91) vs Hawthorn 11.15 (81) - 21 scoring shots to 26.

    Or by creating scoring opportunities in spots on the ground where its easier to kick goals.

    Correct, it's like the Inside 50 count, there's dangerous entries to the top of the square and then there's the ball crossing the 50 line out by the boundary during the scrappy bit of play which is highly unlikely to create a goal but both are Inside 50s.
