Thread: Round 10: Swans v Blues @ SCG

  1. #169
    We wera also barely mentioned on FC last night, but Hutchy mentioned we will be in focus next week (due to bye?).

    Whilst this lack of media recognition is frustrating, i'm happy that we're quietly going about our business without the distracting fanfares. Horse will be happy about that.

    Last 6 games for Essendon: North Melbourne (40), GWS Giants (20), West Coast (6), Collingwood (draw), Adelaide (3), Bulldogs (29).

    Last 7 games: Essendon LOST to Port Adelaide by 69 points.

    A clear example of cherrypicking. The time period was carefully chosen to cover the period when the Swans had a round 5 bye and ALSO avoid the massive flogging that Essendon copped in round 4.

    I have a vested financial interest going here, but the latest Brownlow predictor - for whatever it is worth - has Isaac eight votes clear.

    There's also this one, which they claim is more accurate, because they give half votes. In it, Isaac's tally is little bit less, because in some games he got 2.5 instead of 3, but he's still 7 votes clear of his nearest rival.

    If those predictions are accurate, he's currently averaging a touch over 2 votes a game, and to take the medal from here, he probably needs to average just 1 vote per game, for the remaining 13 games.

    We are getting plenty of love on SEN. There are still strings attached to that like: they haven't got many injuries, what if they get injuries in the back half of the season, teams will work them out. We have 16 players who have played every game.

    Re lack of media on us, it depends on what you read/view.

    My Facebook feed is full of articles on the Swans by SEN, Code Footy, SuperCoach etc.

    I have backed Isaac for the Brownlow a number of times. I am not putting the jinx on him now.

    You don't have to answer this but may I ask what odds you got? Isaac is now favourite at $4.00.

    $200 at 20-1. Went in early after round 1 or 2.

    Damian Barrett has a great article up about us on the AFL website at the moment.
