For Jan Courtin, the rivalry with Collingwood stretches all the way back to her first season watching footy as a child. This week wasn’t so much about the Pies as it was about her Bloods, putting two questionable performances behind them in a last-gasp win.

‘Talk about a game of footy! Talk about a win! Talk about those young first year Bloods! Talk about those young second year Bloods! Talk about those young third year bloods! Talk about, well, simply, the MIGHTY BLOODS!’
Jan Courtin certainly had a lot to cheer the red and the white about on Sunday at Etihad Stadium.

Sydney v Geelong: I’m down in the dumps. Strewth! Imagine if they’d kicked straight!

Jan hates losing. At anything. Tennis, “snap” at midnight on the beach but when her team loses, then it feels personal.

Round 15 – Richmond v Sydney: A road trip and a Richmond idiot

A different take on Ben Ronke’s game

Anyone can talk about goals and tackles but for Jan Courtin, her eyes were drawn to young Ben Ronke’s stylised hair

Round 8 – Hawthorn v Sydney: The Unpredictability of footy and life!

Jan is rapt! Who could have planned for a 20-year old rookie, in just his third game, to have carried out such a remarkable performance. Ronke is his name – Ronks his nickname. Seven goals, ten tackles in any game is a best on ground performance, but to do it in his first game at the G, against a team such as Hawthorn, is a feat he will never forget. The coach/coaches won’t forget, the opposition won’t forget, and the fans won’t forget.

Round 7 – Sydney v North Melbourne: Opposition songs should never be heard at the SCG

The winning opposition’s team song lingers like a bad smell for Jan, infiltrating her bones, and getting the hippocampus all excited once more. Not a beneficial thought, one to get rid of claims Jan as she ponders the Swans defeat.

Round 6 – Geelong v Sydney: There are wins and there are wins!

It’s been a tough month for Jan Courtin’s clan, but love for footy and the Sydney Swans is what pulls this family together, and a win against the Cats in Geelong was a timely one.

Is this the year for the Pies?

Jan makes a bold statement.

The dying art of so many things………

Sporting conversation is not the only thing to have gone missing lately
