    Swans on Youtube.

    Just thought a thread containing links to Swans stuff on Youtube might be good and I'll kick it off by supplying a few links to Swans oriented content that I have come across.

    Starting with Swans fan Riles, who puts up Swans highlight videos each week and other great footy content. Here's his home page:

    Riles - YouTube

    Another is 'Rob Reacts', an English guy who has discovered Aussie Rules and has decided to follow the Swans after a fan sent him a Swans jumper:

    Rob Reacts - YouTube

    ....and here is his Swans 'conversion' vid:

    Rob Reacts... I now support Sydney Swans - AFL - YouTube

    Feel free to put up links to any other Swans youtube content that you may find....including certain club history, like this:

    Saving South - YouTube

    Rob also has a reaction vid to that mini doco here: Rob Reacts to... 'Saving South' - When South Melbourne became Sydney Swans - YouTube

    Hope you enjoy and cheers.

    Thanks for posting this- it was a very bitter time, not really resolved for 20 years or so until Paul Roos became coach. At one stage there was a proposal to change colours to NSW blue. If implemented, it would have decimated the old South fans, including myself. Recommended viewing for forum members not aware of how the Sydney Swans were born.

    Thanks Stevo. You've already got me following Riles. Riles produces high quality highlights videos of our games but the videos only feature OUR highlights, not that pesky stuff from opposition teams. I, too, highly recommend his work!

    In the Edelsten time (shudder) a proposal to wear green and gold was floated. How lucky we were to emerge from those days relatively unscathed. I will always revere Paul Roos for what he did to unite the disparate branches of our supporter base. And for winning a flag. That too.

    Agree 100 per cent. His experience at Fitzroy and how they folded helped us as well. Legendary Swans figure.

    My dad said at the time that if they changed their colours he would stop following them.

    I'm not your dad but I said that to my 4-year-old son too. Happy to say he's grown up to be a fiercely loyal Swan.

    While only some of it concerns his time at the Swans, this edition of The Front Bar has an extended segment with Derek Kickett.

    The Front Bar - (3/06/21) - YouTube

    He comes on at about the 27:30 mark.

    Me too....had this happened, I'd probably be a Cats fan now. So glad we are still the Red and White Swans.

    That was extremely entertaining......geeze he was a talent!

    Also the doco trailer shown before Nicky Winmar came on, "The Ripple Effect" by Peter Dickson looks like a ripper.....and one the entire country needs to view and learn from. Just the trailer alone is disturbing and powerful.

    I seem to remember an article that had a mock up of a picture of Tony Morwood (taking a mark IIRC) in a green jumper with a gold V ... shudders involuntarily
