  • Go the Swans we can beat the bummers if we ouramtk them ( got killed in that department last week) and we play UP to the opposition and play smart .Essendon had the luxury of playing touch football last as the Dogs only made 1 lousy tackle for the match,the bummers will hit non stop by the Swans for the total match but the boys have to counterman the bummers fast handball/long kicks. It'll be a great game Both sides will give their all Swans by 5points.

  • What a pointless list. I'm waiting for somebody to compile a list of the most pointless lists.

    For God's sake. Who really cares?

  • In the cases of #1 and #9 I would rate them at the top for self-serving.
