    Agree totally with this (except not going to the game).

    Having watched the Swans at pretty much every venue, it is safe to say we have the tamest and quietest fans (GWS/Suns aside).

    As much as I hate them, I admire the WA crowds. So much passion, noise and hostility towards the opposition but never any fights, security issues etc.

    Have you watched the swans at the MCG or Marvel? If so then you haven't sat near me then 😉.

    I find Swans supporters interstate far more vocal than at the SCG.

    Our Melbourne fans and interstate traveling fans are brilliant!

    Agree, it’s a very polite crowd at the SCG from my limited experience there. I’ve heard some pretty vocal swans crowds at Etihad and at the G .

    There are passionate and loud supporters at the SCG (such as myself) but we are diluted among the masses of less rusted-on crowd members. I usually go hoarse pretty quickly and am left with clapping and foot stomping. I love revving up the coaches as they are walking down the race at quarter and three quarter time too.

    I share the sentiments expressed on here re the SCG atmosphere. I always feel the most fanatical fan in my vicinity (usually first tier Noble) and almost never retain my voice.
