swans 13.7 (85) defeated tigers 10.6 (66)
it was a scrappy game, with richmond fielding a team of schoolkids.
their forward line had a total of 0 afl games between them.
but their were lots of rookies on both teams.
for a bizarre and unpublicised reason, the kingston gate was not open, requiring patrons to walk all the way around to the gate near the services club.
because of this i missed the start. not impressed.
also, the pies were CRAP! please get 4’n’20’s.
sydney played spida everitt in swans colours for the first time (no 10). he had a good game. so did goodes.
keep the eyes on the pill. for some reason there were 8 umpires on the paddock.
this little kid busted onto the ground…
so the security kept a close eye on this group. they use sophisticated profiling techniques in manuka oval security.
you know those nice player/position guides you see in the record ? on the ground they bear no relation to reality. its just a mass of players in a line from goal square to goal square.
one of the best things about going to the footy as a kid – running around after the final siren and reenacting your favourite royce hart goal.
