It was touted as the game of the round and it didn't disappoint as football fans were treated to a Friday Night thriller at Etihad Stadium.

Social media and football go hand in hand and the twittersphere was alight with fans expressing their emotions from the game.

Here's the best of social for #AFLDogsSwans.

Reidy's 6 goal haul for Game Number 100
Sam Reid put together a stellar performance in his 100th match, booting 6 goals and continuing his impressive comeback after a year on the sidelines.

Buddy's Bombs
Lance Franklin unleashed a couple of huge goals outside 50 in the final term to get the Swans back in the match and didn't the fans love it!

Debutants fire!
One of the highlights to come out of the match was the way our new players went about their business. Debutants Nic Newman, Robbie Fox and Will Hayward as well as second gamer Ollie Florent did not look out of place on the big stage.

Free kick or not?
And then there was the decision that had everyone talking and opinions divided when a free kick was awarded to the Dogs late in the game as Callum Mills rushed a behind.

And then there was Titus O'Reily's spin on it.....

And despite the result going against the Swans, fans enjoyed the fiercely contested and entertaining game of football. Whilst the Swans are now 0-2, the team will look to register a win when they are back at home against Collingwood on Friday night with the Swans faithful right behind them.
