The Swans have taken over Rugby League for popularity on Sydney’s north shore, eastern suburbs and inner west. That’s massive.
The AFL and the Giants need to drop the bloody ridiculous GWS name and just be called Western Sydney and focus on bloody Western Sydney. It will take time just like the Swans to build up a loyal supporter base and strong membership. Talk of home games at the SCG for the Giants is more stupid thinking. Tony Shepherd what were you thinking even entertaining that thought bubble? SCG and Venues NSW conflict of interest perhaps Tony?
