Despite the result, it was a great atmosphere at the SCG on Saturday with lots of red & white for the season opener!

It was wonderful to be back "home"

Always great to be watching the swannies 🙂

The return of Sam Reid was just one of the talking points from last night's opener with Plugger and the Prime Minister also getting some attention at the SCG.

Reid was the only highlight in an otherwise pathetic performance
03/26/2017 at 09:42
It's good to see you back Sam and a bit of match fitness will help any fade out .This was evident of all our players ? Brandon Jack he's only 22 never played last year wondered if he could inject a bit of pace which we sadly lack ,just a thought couldn't be worse than Towers .
03/26/2017 at 08:29
Great to see you back Sam!!! Its also great to see your talent shine... 😊👍🏼

To paraphrase John Longmire’s assessment of what went wrong in our loss to the Power last night.....the Swans were simply ‘out-Sydneyed’.

I was disappointed to read such nasty comments on last nights posts... I enjoyed the game- Sure we didn't win but they come out fiery. It was slippery and unfortunately Power was the stronger team. I do think Buddy carried the team and they wouldn't have done as well without him- But reading the comments last night were really terrible, shaming certain players and the coach. Head up boys, only early yet! Go the Swans!
03/26/2017 at 06:15
Win or lose I love those Swannies. Go the Bloods!!
03/26/2017 at 08:49
I think as supporters we are allowed to have a say about the game, yeah we didn't play well, if we still don't play well by round 12 thats a cause for concern, I find it frustrating that people are shaming other supporters, because they have some negative feedback about the game, this whole your not a true supporter if u dont positively support the team hurts. We pay memberships we support the team, we are allowed to say things

Groundhog Day. Losing count how many times you guys grab defeat from the jaws of victory then get all enthusiastic about the next round. Port Adelaide FFS?!?
03/26/2017 at 01:47
But if you playing Finals You'll not play next week So better solve the problems before is to late
03/26/2017 at 03:10
That's the spirit! Pick yourselves up and learn form it and go get em next week!! It's only round 1. Love my swannies! ❤

"Whether it was in the middle of ground or in defence we lost the 50/50 contest & we have to be better at those."
See what else our coach had to say in his post-match press conference.

03/25/2017 at 23:23
Towers still no good under pressure. And just seemed our speedy tackles and swans pressure was 2 slow to get back on our feet
03/26/2017 at 03:16
Our senior midfield except for Joey went missing ,too many inexperienced players down back with the ball coming in fast and often .No player except for Joey and grundy after a slow start early in the first put in a full match ,lastly too slow notably Luke and Dan let's hope was a one off .

Disappointing result, on the upside only round 1 plenty of time to iron out the kinks. Looked under pressure all day and beaten at our own game. Turn it around boys. I'll say it before any one else does, Towers decision making is terrible.
03/25/2017 at 09:49
Really just cost us in the last 5 mins of each quarter, will have to improve this but it's only round 1, were 1-3 to start a couple of seasons ago and then won 12 in a row so no stress yet!

Things don't change - 35 seconds to go in the 2nd quarter - and what do we do ? Lets pass it back and forward in our defensive 50 to run the clock down - so what do we do ? Of course stuff it up , yes 35 seconds to go and .... Oh not only do Port kick a goal but TWO - yes within 35 seconds!!!! That's what makes you cranky!!!! You'd think it would be common sense to drive the ball down the ground!!!!!
03/25/2017 at 08:26.
Not our night.
Buddy with four goals and Joey 28 disposals led the way.

Towers should be dropped, preferably into the pacific ocean
03/25/2017 at 08:29
Oh no, Swans being dreadful in the first round like every season in recent memory! Not phased.
03/25/2017 at 08:45
No legs to keep up with Port and let's be honest the skills were very average!!!! It's definitely a game we can really improve on.. Great to see Sam Reid back and play well plus buddy's hands were great even with a slippery ball....
03/25/2017 at 07:38.
Need to turn things around in this final quarter.
Kennedy (23 disposals) and Jones (20) the major ball winners. #goswans

Jeez fickle Swans's supporters it's only round one not the GF! Lots to work on it's a long season. How about a bit of support and less whining... 🔴⚪🔴⚪
03/25/2017 at 08:10
Jordan foote, dean towers, marsh, hewett. All useless. It however again shows longmires inability to coach different situations. He is great front runner terrible when things dont go his gameplan way. Yep early days only round 1 but seriously...
03/26/2017 at 02:23
Yeah it is only the first game but it's the same three to four players that just seem to let the rest of the team down
They all have skills well beyond us as couch critics but at the end of the day they are paid as elite players
No one wishes any malice towards them but we all want the best for our team
03/25/2017 at 06:45.
Work to do in the second half.
Jones is leading the way with 18 disposals while Reidy has three goals. #goswans

Lost count of the number of times the opposition scores with 30 seconds to go in a qtr. Last season it was bad and it continues in 2017 it seems.
Cmon Bloods! You can win this!
03/25/2017 at 07:37
It would be helpful if Longmire coached like he is paid to do. No structure changes to do something different to our midfield and backline. Same as what he didn't do in GF
03/25/2017 at 11:00
It always sucks losing more when it's at home too. The walk home feels so much slower :-( BUT we'll be back and Plugger's mentoring/help will surely help too.
03/25/2017 at 06:09.
Plenty to like as we head to the first break.
Reidy firing up forward with two goals, Marsh (9 disposals), Lloyd (7) and Grundy (7) doing power of work down back.

Thought we had no cohesion all over the ground today. Decision making by several o f our boys was terrible! Look too big on the forward line particularly when Naismth was in the area. Looking forward to return of Alir Allir, as Grundy is in dire need of help on the backline. Thought that Hannebury looked out of sorts today.. Need some big improvement next week against premiers ?
03/25/2017 at 06:15
nice to see that a new season hasn't stopped the umps inventing frees against us
03/25/2017 at 06:39
Good to see Kenny back in his usual position behind the goals.

Take your time Isaac don't want you to end up with chronic fatigue or any other complications from this seemingly benign illness ,not that I'm too worried the swans will be cautious cheers

Another season stuck in the basket state watching Lions and Suns getting pasted. 7Mate needs to spread the coverage 'cause I ain't getting Fox.

What has been the most challenging aspect of the illness, the physical limitations or the mental side of knowing you're out for a bit?

Please look into reinstating this. I feel it will encourage people to drive straight to the grounds which means only more traffic congestion on game days. Was a great option last few years

Not happy....will be a nightmare everyone trying to get the bus from central...queues will be bad 😞 not looking forward to catching the train home after the late games in mingle of winter.

Are you telling me that I missed coverage of this game because they had the "7 week" so called AFLW grand final on? Good one Channel 7. Only "free" tickets gets the numbers in the grandstand. 4 goals kicked by each team, joke 🤔
