    We are pretty lucky to be so close. I must say though that before the season started I honestly thought Nth Melbourne would be fighting it out for the wooden spoon and penciled this in for an easy win! How wrong was I!!! North has been mightily impressive this year with a list most thought and maybe still think is average at best!

    Don't look like winners so far. Inside 50 entries have been clumsy - Ben Brown would have the most marks inside our forward 50. Also, they are kicking it out of defence, and generally finding loose men around the ground, too easily. Wasting chances. Techincal umpiring. Heeney and Parker need to step up.

    Swans dominant around the contest that Q but poor kicking for goal and poor kicking into the Fwd50 cost us.

    No point kicking it long to Ben Brown. Why not try and hit a leading player?

Does that rubbish every week.

    Matt, the umps are miked up, so it was deemed to be a goal after the replay.
    Mate, it was clearly touched, so someone made an error.

    Now that we're on top in the clearances, I think we'll slowly grind them down in the second half. Sinclair probably best on ground so far.
    The umpiring has often been mystifying and actually the difference on the scoreboard. I'm not sure why they seem to think that Ben Brown should get free kicks for being clumsy?

    Blind Freddie could see that the Mills kick wasn't an option; turnover for goal. Symptomatic of our night. Dumb decisions all round.

    We absolutely lack a player with the skill and class of Higgins and it's really hurting us tonight.

    I suspect that it might have been Mathew Nicholls concentrating on how was going to achieve another perfect centre bounce, rather than paying attention to unimportant things; like goal reviews. But that's just guesswork on my part, like a lot of the umpiring tonight.

    I wish McVeigh never said they wanted to turn the SCG into a 'fortress' yada yada. We've been crap at home ever since.
