Match Thread: Sydney Swans vs Hawthorn (Round 13)
By - AutoModerator
How often do they grab the newbie for the end of game interview?
FFS the word debut is pronounced [day-byoo](https://howjsay.com/how-to-pronounce-debut) not dayboo nobody pronounces it dayboo you nonces
it's actually deh-boo
Two ships passing in the night
Bud left the same offseason BB came in
who is bb? bill belichick?
What a lad. Good on the chat too.
Did McEvoy and Franklin play together or was Buddy already at the swans when BB left the saints?
Buddy had already left or was in the process of leaving. BB arrived during that same trade period ie end of 2013
They never overlapped at Hawthorn.
Pretty sure Robert Campbell rucked in 2013 and then retired. So we traded in McEvoy that postseason.
Edit - Was Max Bailey
Bailey was our ruck in 2013, retired after the flag. Hale would back him up. Robby and Renouf were the rucks for 2008 with Taylor dropped the last couple games of the regular season that year.
Oh yes, was thinking Max Bailey but had Campbell name in my head. Knew it was an injury prone ruck.
Don't think they ever played together.
Love you Ray!
He wants to know if you are single
Good of the Hawks to win after the SCG installed only 5 watt bulbs in their coaches box
Clarkson punched the globes out in the first qtr
Fuck I hate this song
Best song in the AFL? Apart from your own clubs
Yours goes alright but aside from ours I like WC and Giants. This one has just hurt too many times in recent years
Wow wee the umpires are on good form 😂
Probably too late for a swans come from behind win now
great win boys
pretty sure papley got a molecule of his hand to that ball
He was a cocky fuck when he kicked that goal against us last year. Never forget.
His penis touched the ball. Play on
Finally a valid reason for the umpiring being how it was
😂 not wrong at all
Well, now I’m sad
Me too :(
I feel like all the Swans looked at Round 9 and assumed this was a bye round because the Poo & Wee lost to Norf
Well played Hawks - deserved winners. The umpires have not impacted the result as such but they have been terrible.
I reckon Will Day might have a significant impact, backline looked completely different. Can't wait for next year with Sicily potentially in there too.
I reckon hawks won’t win another game for the rest of the season lol jk. Nah idk they’re definitely better but Sydney did play extremely shit today I’d wait a bit longer to say if they rly are a decent team again
Swans are caca
Selfish selfish selfish
Caroline Wilson has been adamant every year for the last 10 years about Clarko leaving. She says it every year and one of these years, she maybe right.
AFL version of a broken clock
Again, holding the ball payed early
The papley one????
honestly we look like a team who needs the bye playing a team who had two weeks to prepare and rest. not great but i get it.
We also played as if it were a bye
why is it so dark in the hawks box lol
Both are pretty dark. Might have something to do with the lighting at the ground so that can see properly
Clarko stopping the tank for one week to own the Media
Clarko looks like a villain in those lights
Swans need a quick seven goals to steal the win
This is just terrible sydney can’t even set something up with witches hats
McEvoy permanent forward this game? Has he rucked in the middle at all?
Couple of ruckups but mostly forward
Sydney had 16 shots from 50 inside 50s. Out defended at the end of the day
Swans have made Ceglar look All Australian tonight
Not hard. Hickey is rubbish.
Lol - you guys played very well tonight but you clearly haven’t watched us play this year if you think Hickey is rubbish
Your right i don't. I should've said he is rubbish "tonight"
I’ll take that - that is fair!
Tonight yes, but he has been playing pretty well this year
You don’t watch footy do you
Mate the swans have one bad night whereas the hawks have been shit all season. Shut. The. Fuck. Up.
Flair up cunt
Surely razor gets dropped or fired after this fuckery
Probably unpopular opinion, but are you not allowed to wear the old beanie? Is it's shelf life only 1 year?
I think it's the same as buying a new poppy pin for Remembrance Day every year, good cause to support
Supporting cancer council today by wearing my $5 daffodil pin from 2002
I feel like if you've given to the cause you should wear any years beanie
But you have to put this years beanie on top
thats not an opinion, thats a question
Guess the opinion is I shouldn't have to buy it every year. The beanies designed to make the previous years obsolete on purpose.
I’m pretty sure you freeze if you try
It's for charity you cheap skate
As much as I hate the Squawks, it's always good to see the swans go down.
If it wasn't for fucking Razor I wouldn't have managed any hint of emotion regarding this game.
I hate that attention-seeking prick.
I take it that it's your first time watching him?
Razor: Free kick....
*music increases in tempo*
*crowd holds its breath*
*drop of sweat drops from BT's brow as he fumbles to remember some obscure fact that is in no way related to the actual game being played*
Razor: Free kick.........(insert team who no one would have expected to get a free for that particular passage of play)
What a cutting retort. I'm not sure how I will ever recover except to take comfort from you losing at home to a team that is way down the bottom of the ladder.
Always Nick Davis ❤️
It’s probably too late for a swans come back now
Something something Carlton are still a chance!
95% chance won’t happen but we still can get top 8. We’re the only team that has an easy enough draw to make top 8 atm and we’re not getting in which shows how set the top 8 is atm.
Could you imagine 😍
That guy mugs for camera, doesn't tell his two little kids they are on tv
Sydney's inside 50's have been horrible today
*Sydney has been horrible today*
Really clean from Jiath. Nice list shaping up
It's alright, Sydney. The AFL need you to be good so they can compete with the NRL.
Hawks def. has been on point.
Hawks defence doesn't look like it has for the last 12 games
It helps when every entry is a long bomb
Yeah the long bombs were super bad and why couldn’t Sydney do this against Carlton :( we would’ve won then
That last one where Jaith got to it was from inside 50
*with the odd short bomb
The MND beanies are the most comfy beanies I have ever bought and I have bought a shit ton of beanies plus they look good
They have honestly turned into a Fashion Icon in Victoria.
yeah it's always good when a new one comes out love seeing the new designs the new one is probably one of my favourites yet
frost literally just tok like 4 steps to the side to cut off the inside pass but ok
Unremarkable Shiels should be his nickname.
Razor Ray has done something I didn’t think possible tonight and really brought Hawthorn and Sydney supporters together
I love CJ
me too, he seems to play with more experience than he has.
This percentage boost is going to be handy come late season.
You know, to avoid the spoon.
Playing like that you ain’t getting the spoon
3 wins and a percentage in the high 70s might be enough
The Hawks are OfRazor tonight. Under his whistle. My the frees open. Praise be
Which I receive with joy
Sydney haven't been clean tonight. Lots of missed targets or handballs that have gone just behind the player running forward
Dived on it, no attempt, ball up
I’d love a tasty lil Horforn win over Essington.
Guys I haven't been able to watch tonight.
Can someone update me on whether there have been any athletic players tonight?
Amity, amerty, arimty and CJ all athletic
It’s AFL they’re all athletic, but nah, not that I know of. Otherwise I would have my athletic counter up
just take the set shot mate lmao
Good attempt by 28, if you can't make the distance try something new. I like it.
Selling the candy and missing is a much worse look than just missing a set shot.
Sydney, pulling a Freo right now
The inclusion of Lewis Taylor has single handedly brought back the 2020 Swans
Wtf was that shit. Seriously
BT speedruns Lloyd's name in under 0.2 seconds
He’s a very casual kick of the ball… I’d love to see how far he could launch a proper kick
So what's changed in this match for the hawks, why have they improved so much in the contest? One boxing match surely can't be the reason
Will day back in the team.
Newcombe gets 12 tackles on debut by 3/4 time
JOM back too.
Mitchell actually looks like his old self too
Frost's gambles are actually paying off tonight.
Oh and apparently we paid razor a million bucks to fix the match
I reckon Will Day and JOM are big ins too.
their pressure has been fucking huge all game. Newcombe I think the hawks new mid-season draftee's name is, has laid like 15 tackles. just been hounding all over the ground
Newcombe must be the difference I guess
Sydney haven't been playing particularly well either to be fair, but yeah it's a huge improvement today
Jai Newcombe, Jaeger and Will Day.
Not sure. They just seem so much more physical.
CJ ran pretty far there lucky not to get pinged
Wearing the right coloured guernsey tonight
I must have missed the swans frequently being calling for running too far being completely different to other teams
Hawks absolutely cut through us with a Razor tonight
Yeah I get that we didn’t lose because of the umpires and that we were atrocious but fuck me you can’t act like the umpires werent absolutely fucked tonight.
In a game of momentum Ray really did his best to fuck us whenever it looked like we might build some.
Yeah but look all we did was boot it into the forward 50 and turn it over constantly we were never going to win
Yeah you're right, our ball use definitely gave me flash backs to the Gold Coast game where there was no egregious umpiring to speak of.
A week off seems like a good idea about now. My expectations may have grown too high for our young side, consider them tempered by ofcourseithadtobethefucking Hawks.
Longmire has uncharacteristically been mentioning the umps in his press conferences recently, I reckon he'll go off tonight.
Don’t think horse will ever mention the umps or other teams players doing dodgy shit, the only time he has ever done either was when bugg knocked out mills. He has too much class for that.
I hope he does, would be great to see
That’s one of the purest, most relaxed dobs from 50m I’ve seen. Going to have a Benny Graham leg when it’s all said and done.
These late scores really hurting our percentage.
Could cost us a top 4 finish.
Oof 40 point deficit. That must be some really terrible umpiring to cause that
How do you expect a team to be in the game with a free kick count of 25-10?
Sydney are super undisciplined, yes some calls were unfair but this game and also in the Carlton game Sydney have been giving way so many free kicks off their own fault.
Yeah, with such poor discipline a team will always struggle.
maybe if they played better they wouldn't have given away so many lmao
Kicking straight, not losing cont possessions
I’m not saying the hawks didn’t play well, but how often does a team get close with a kick free count that one sided?
Free kicks 7-25 to bulldogs, freo still won
So are you telling me the umpiring was good? If not then what’s your point?
I dont think it was as bad as everyone is crying about, there were reasons for all the frees
I respectfully disagree. There was many calls that could have gone either way and yet nearly everytime they went to the hawks, there was a particular call that drove me nuts. Rowbottom kicked it to 2 players on the boundary, split the middle and took a right angle bounce and it was called deliberate. Few minutes later worpel kicks it into their forward 50 to nobody to get a ball up, no call and throw it in. Makes zero sense
FREE KICK COUNTS MEAN NOTHING IN ISOLATION
That is a good leg
That kid could be something god damn
I like good game
I fucking rate amartey so hard
Contests well and saw him working well without the ball. Will do well imo.
This guy has no style about his goal kicking lead up. Just substance, amazing.
Bloody hell, Amartey has a fair boot on him
Sydney the new Richmond with the whining
Unlike Richmond, they do have reason to be whining
What? They honestly should be able to whine about this game, that have taken it raw up the as
LOL come on man
Funny how the umpires decide if Sydney play like shit or not
Always Essendon supports at the end of a Sydney loss funny that. Stay salty
They are not mutually exclusive
Funny how two things can be true at the same time.
Yeah, sucks the big ones
Sydney can complain all they like - they’ve just been below average all night.
Nice goal from Amartey - like the look of him.
Why can't it be both? We've been shit and the umpires worse.
Whats St Kilda payin tommorro?
Umps made it clear this round they're favouring victorian sides
Nobody gets dodgy umpiring against vic sides like Adelaide.
Fucking hell, what a leg on this kid
What in the fuck is Sydney doing?? They're playing like my fucking AusKick team did. Pathetic....
Let’s go percentage!
We've gone from Amity to Armaty, BT, which is it?
