Who can challenge Richmond this year?

As the ladder begins to take shape, the form of certain teams highlights the limited amount of outfits capable of taking out the 2018 flag. With Richmond appearing as ominous as ever after a barnstorming run to the top of the ladder, the main question to arise is which teams are actually able to match them and perhaps clinch a premiership off them come Grand Final day. Sean considers the options.

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

The Red and the White – Swans mid year review

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 4 – Western Bulldogs v Sydney: That was a tough one (what a relief!)

Diana Dors, Marianne Faithful and Bette Davis! What have they got to do with the Sydney Swans? Almanacker Jan explains all.

Round 3 – Sydney v GWS: Us winning is just as good as them losing!

According to Jan, Sydney played as a team, everyone contributed, and for the full four quarters. The Giants, those privileged young men who, despite being brilliant footballers, can still learn a thing or two from their eastern suburbs rivals – the Mighty Bloods! And long may it grow and last! Jan is excited by the Swans win.
