    Of course now that I've been pedantic, there's bound to a mistake somewhere in my post, that I just can't sea.
    I like Eleni too. Unfortunately she was dropped last week for paying 2 dodgy frees that apparently allowed the Eagles to kick goals against the Saints. It's amazing how they never drop the more experienced umpires when they have bad games.

    Must take Brown 30 seconds to walk back to the spot where he begins his walk-up!

    A flurry of stats about the Swans side that beat North on Saturday.

    Swans by the numbers: Cygnets shine - sydneyswans.com.au

    The youngest side the club has fielded since Round 8, 1997
    The youngest Swans winning team since Round 4, 1994
    The total experience of the Swans side on Saturday of 1397 AFL games (average 62.6 games) was the lowest since teams increased from 21 players to 22 players in 1998

    Yes Mel. How true. Umpires are human and yes they do make mistakes. Imagine what would happen if players get dropped every time they make a mistake or 2.

    Except for the man on the mark, the rest of the team have to sit on the bench.
