How often do they grab the newbie for the end of game interview?


happy-little-atheist

FFS the word debut is pronounced [day-byoo](https://howjsay.com/how-to-pronounce-debut) not dayboo nobody pronounces it dayboo you nonces


smnbgr

it's actually deh-boo


alexLAD

Two ships passing in the night Bud left the same offseason BB came in


PluggersLeftBall

who is bb? bill belichick?


whiteronnie

What a lad. Good on the chat too.


happy-little-atheist

Did McEvoy and Franklin play together or was Buddy already at the swans when BB left the saints?


byrnz77

Buddy had already left or was in the process of leaving. BB arrived during that same trade period ie end of 2013


kyrant

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


Econodog_au

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.


kyrant

Oh yes, was thinking Max Bailey but had Campbell name in my head. Knew it was an injury prone ruck.


InnatelyIncognito

Don't think they ever played together.


melbgal

Love you Ray!


happy-little-atheist

He wants to know if you are single


stavraki

GG hawks


Wallyballoo

Good of the Hawks to win after the SCG installed only 5 watt bulbs in their coaches box


jmb-mtg

Clarkson punched the globes out in the first qtr


foodbaby02

Fuck I hate this song


TheScriptorWL

Best song in the AFL? Apart from your own clubs


foodbaby02

Yours goes alright but aside from ours I like WC and Giants. This one has just hurt too many times in recent years


Coro24

Wow wee the umpires are on good form 😂


jmb-mtg

Probably too late for a swans come from behind win now


rzor89

great win boys


PluggersLeftBall

pretty sure papley got a molecule of his hand to that ball


DannyArcher1983

He was a cocky fuck when he kicked that goal against us last year. Never forget.


sierraoscar19

His penis touched the ball. Play on

Vizslaboy

Finally a valid reason for the umpiring being how it was


kreashenz

😂 not wrong at all


nifun

Well, now I’m sad


HideAway68874

Me too :(


sierraoscar19

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.


weinertorn

Hawthorn'S BACK


InnatelyIncognito

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.


HideAway68874

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


Sloanish29

Swans are caca


Rhotar

Selfish selfish selfish


Wallyballoo

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


Heavy_Bastard

Again, holding the ball payed early


HideAway68874

The papley one????


graufus1

The papley one????


Psychotic_Bear

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.


sierraoscar19

We also played as if it were a bye


InfinitePineapple212

why is it so dark in the hawks box lol


Themirkat

Both are pretty dark. Might have something to do with the lighting at the ground so that can see properly


___TheIllusiveMan___

Clarko stopping the tank for one week to own the Media


CrabSully

🤫


Flarezap

Clarko looks like a villain in those lights


jmb-mtg

Swans need a quick seven goals to steal the win


Rhotar

This is just terrible sydney can’t even set something up with witches hats


InnatelyIncognito

McEvoy permanent forward this game? Has he rucked in the middle at all?


kreashenz

Couple of ruckups but mostly forward


Jcro97

Sydney had 16 shots from 50 inside 50s. Out defended at the end of the day


Themirkat

Swans have made Ceglar look All Australian tonight


gardz82

Not hard. Hickey is rubbish.


Vizslaboy

Lol - you guys played very well tonight but you clearly haven’t watched us play this year if you think Hickey is rubbish


gardz82

Your right i don't. I should've said he is rubbish "tonight"


Vizslaboy

I’ll take that - that is fair!


needsmore_coffee

Tonight yes, but he has been playing pretty well this year

IDreamofHeeney

You don’t watch footy do you


HideAway68874

Mate the swans have one bad night whereas the hawks have been shit all season. Shut. The. Fuck. Up.


___TheIllusiveMan___

Flair up cunt


nick170100

Surely razor gets dropped or fired after this fuckery


kyrant

Probably unpopular opinion, but are you not allowed to wear the old beanie? Is it's shelf life only 1 year?


northbound_gondola

I think it's the same as buying a new poppy pin for Remembrance Day every year, good cause to support


IncrediEddie

Supporting cancer council today by wearing my $5 daffodil pin from 2002


Calamityclams

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


bldragon101

thats not an opinion, thats a question


kyrant

Guess the opinion is I shouldn't have to buy it every year. The beanies designed to make the previous years obsolete on purpose.


smegdaddy

I’m pretty sure you freeze if you try


dmaddo

It's for charity you cheap skate


jmb-mtg

It’s illegal


_yetifeet

As much as I hate the Squawks, it's always good to see the swans go down.


GJacks75

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.


_yetifeet

I take it that it's your first time watching him? *Whistle blows* 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)


CaptainNewspeak

Nick Davis


_yetifeet

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.


Greedy_Boot7621

Always Nick Davis ❤️


jmb-mtg

It’s probably too late for a swans come back now


Croob2

Something something Carlton are still a chance!


Priestess-Of-Winter

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.


Calamityclams

Could you imagine 😍


happy-little-atheist

That guy mugs for camera, doesn't tell his two little kids they are on tv


Heavy_Bastard

Sydney's inside 50's have been horrible today


foodbaby02

*Sydney has been horrible today* FTFY


northbound_gondola

Really clean from Jiath. Nice list shaping up


shocking_red_4

It's alright, Sydney. The AFL need you to be good so they can compete with the NRL.


whiteronnie

Hawks def. has been on point.


happy-little-atheist

Hawks defence doesn't look like it has for the last 12 games


hortoclawz

It helps when every entry is a long bomb


Priestess-Of-Winter

Yeah the long bombs were super bad and why couldn’t Sydney do this against Carlton :( we would’ve won then


happy-little-atheist

That last one where Jaith got to it was from inside 50


hortoclawz

*with the odd short bomb


MoreThenYouThought

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


TheScriptorWL

They have honestly turned into a Fashion Icon in Victoria.


MoreThenYouThought

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


PluggersLeftBall

frost literally just tok like 4 steps to the side to cut off the inside pass but ok


kyrant

Unremarkable Shiels should be his nickname.


Vizslaboy

Razor Ray has done something I didn’t think possible tonight and really brought Hawthorn and Sydney supporters together


RaidanRam

I love CJ


rzor89

me too, he seems to play with more experience than he has.


BIllyBrooks

This percentage boost is going to be handy come late season. You know, to avoid the spoon.


Priestess-Of-Winter

Playing like that you ain’t getting the spoon


BIllyBrooks

3 wins and a percentage in the high 70s might be enough


AussieGirl27

The Hawks are OfRazor tonight. Under his whistle. My the frees open. Praise be


foodbaby02

Which I receive with joy


Wallyballoo

Sydney haven't been clean tonight. Lots of missed targets or handballs that have gone just behind the player running forward


dmaddo

Dived on it, no attempt, ball up


TheRearMech

I’d love a tasty lil Horforn win over Essington.


dmaddo

Dived on it, no attempt, ball up


limelamb

Guys I haven't been able to watch tonight. Can someone update me on whether there have been any athletic players tonight?


dmaddo

Amity, amerty, arimty and CJ all athletic


TheScriptorWL

It’s AFL they’re all athletic, but nah, not that I know of. Otherwise I would have my athletic counter up


AFLlegend456

Yes, CJ


RaidanRam

CJ


Radalict

Also Amartey.


Greedy_Boot7621

And razer


rzor89

just take the set shot mate lmao


Heavy_Bastard

Good attempt by 28, if you can't make the distance try something new. I like it.


statman1551

Selling the candy and missing is a much worse look than just missing a set shot.


Croob2

Sydney, pulling a Freo right now


RaidanRam

Lol


tommylee23111999

The inclusion of Lewis Taylor has single handedly brought back the 2020 Swans


Rhotar

Sellllfiiishhh


newmoneytrash69

lol


AussieGirl27

Wtf was that shit. Seriously


Pudrat

BT speedruns Lloyd's name in under 0.2 seconds


Flarezap

Lld


pellistri

He’s a very casual kick of the ball… I’d love to see how far he could launch a proper kick


Axlfromstreetsofrage

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


weinertorn

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


InnatelyIncognito

I reckon Will Day and JOM are big ins too.


Nolsey21

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


Justletmesubscribe

Newcombe must be the difference I guess


rzor89

Sydney haven't been playing particularly well either to be fair, but yeah it's a huge improvement today


Darththorn

Jai Newcombe, Jaeger and Will Day.


CrabSully

Not sure. They just seem so much more physical.


Croob2

CJ ran pretty far there lucky not to get pinged


egdip

Wearing the right coloured guernsey tonight


Themirkat

I must have missed the swans frequently being calling for running too far being completely different to other teams


dmaddo

Hawks absolutely cut through us with a Razor tonight


Mrchikkin

STFU BT


the-brow_23

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.


denzik

In a game of momentum Ray really did his best to fuck us whenever it looked like we might build some.


the-brow_23

Yeah but look all we did was boot it into the forward 50 and turn it over constantly we were never going to win


denzik

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.


challsleeps

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.


foodbaby02

Praise be


Yancy166

Longmire has uncharacteristically been mentioning the umps in his press conferences recently, I reckon he'll go off tonight.


Govzilla

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.


PopeofStraya

I hope he does, would be great to see


BIllyBrooks

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.


karma_dumpster

These late scores really hurting our percentage. Could cost us a top 4 finish.


weinertorn

Oof 40 point deficit. That must be some really terrible umpiring to cause that


IDreamofHeeney

How do you expect a team to be in the game with a free kick count of 25-10?


Priestess-Of-Winter

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.


kleft02

Yeah, with such poor discipline a team will always struggle.


rzor89

maybe if they played better they wouldn't have given away so many lmao


graufus1

Kicking straight, not losing cont possessions


IDreamofHeeney

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?


graufus1

https://afltables.com/afl/stats/games/1997/070819970329.html Free kicks 7-25 to bulldogs, freo still won


IDreamofHeeney

So are you telling me the umpiring was good? If not then what’s your point?


graufus1

I dont think it was as bad as everyone is crying about, there were reasons for all the frees


IDreamofHeeney

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


weinertorn

FREE KICK COUNTS MEAN NOTHING IN ISOLATION jfc


kreashenz

/s *


Themirkat

That is a good leg


BusinessPineapple

That kid could be something god damn


Jeremy_Gorbachov

I like good game


Nolsey21

I fucking rate amartey so hard


InnatelyIncognito

Contests well and saw him working well without the ball. Will do well imo.


Justletmesubscribe

This guy has no style about his goal kicking lead up. Just substance, amazing.


FurphyMurphy

Bloody hell, Amartey has a fair boot on him


acllive

Sydney the new Richmond with the whining


Heavy_Bastard

Unlike Richmond, they do have reason to be whining


Coro24

What? They honestly should be able to whine about this game, that have taken it raw up the as


Nolsey21

LOL come on man


shocking_red_4

Funny how the umpires decide if Sydney play like shit or not


mrt53

Always Essendon supports at the end of a Sydney loss funny that. Stay salty


Wallyballoo

They are not mutually exclusive


wirrell

Funny how two things can be true at the same time.


AussieGirl27

Yeah, sucks the big ones


eatsbacon_

Sydney can complain all they like - they’ve just been below average all night. Nice goal from Amartey - like the look of him.


Radalict

Why can't it be both? We've been shit and the umpires worse.


ForsakenPriority3767

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.


FenerBoarOfWar

Fucking hell, what a leg on this kid


kreashenz

What in the fuck is Sydney doing?? They're playing like my fucking AusKick team did. Pathetic....


the-brow_23

Let’s go percentage!


statman1551

We've gone from Amity to Armaty, BT, which is it?


Peppsy

Armartee
