    Yeah, I think you're right. There was a bit of grief from some Swans people towards them for it. I must have been at a bit of a loose end
    back then as I went to a number of those games. Footy is always more relaxing when you don't care who wins. But it's not as
    interesting. One game I caught a North T-shirt that was fired from some sort of cannon mounted to the back of a ute that drove around
    the ground at half time. I gave it to a so-called mate who weirdly had jumped ship from supporting the Swans to supporting North at the
    time. He still supports North but is a shadow of a man he once was.

    I was at a Norf v Swans match at the SCG. A Norf home game. They tried everything to poach the swans members. Offering incentives, discounts and even free Mars bars for the kids to become Norf members. Who weren't serious about a sydney move? Norf? My bloody oath they were

    Wow! After looking like a rabble in the first quarter, Lions are now just 3 pts behind! Go Lions!

    Yep. The no-call in the Lions goal square 30 seconds from the end cost them the game.

    Brisbane ripped off in the end. Shocking non call.
