I'm glad there is an AFL thread here. Hi just joined I'm a BLOODS supporter ! Go the Bloods !!!
I miss the fantastic rivalry between West Coast and Sydney. I really do. The OP here dealt with that game where Barry Hall sent Staker to Disneyland
and almost to the Morgue. I was sitting 25-30 metres away from Barry when he threw the infamous punch. My eys were on the ball, so I didn't see the
actual punch, butt I SWEAR I heard it, loud and clear. Not one of Barry Halls finest moments, thats for sure !
Nothing beats the 2005 and 2006 grand finals though. God it ws excruciating to miss out on back to back glory by a single solitary point ! Grrrrrr ! [
Butt both GF's should be officially considered classics].
Whenever I'm in a bad mood though, and I want to cheer myself up, I just hop on You Tube and look at this game, the semi against Geelong in 2005, the
one that got us into the Preliminary final against Saints . It is one of the all time great Swans victories...Nick Davis quiet as a little mouse and
ten times as useless for three quarters..and then, from out of nowhere...BOOM ! ~~~~~ 4 goals to win, including the winning goal with 13 seconds left
on the clock ! We were thirteen secs away from 'goodbye 2005', and we went on to win the bloody premiership ! Yay swans ! Yay Sydney !
