    Like the boy.
    Same sentiments as Plugger though ,can do some real weird ##$$%

    Though he busts his guts for us, loves the joint, and has played some very good footy at times. Id have in my team anytime.
    He isnt a forward , its as simple as that.

    Hope he bounces back after that knock from Fev.
    He has history Fevola.
    It aint the 1st time Fevs done it either.

    7 from me. Ted Bear has the Swans ethos of working for the team, and his courage cannot be denied. Some of his marks in the back line are just outstanding. Disposal not always brilliant, but even Kell had an off day.

    5/10 -I like Ted but some of his errors at crucial times in that middle strech of the year were pretty poor even by his standards.

    Find 2009 very hard to rate, although I consider him as a starter in our 22 at this stage

    I note the comments regarding his forward play, I'm a bit perplexed

    I can't remember him ever having a decent stint in the forward line, he was always played back. I thought he could of got a crack last year in between Barry's blow up and Jessies late end of year form but that boat has probably sailed now with Bradshaw's arrival.

    The only time I can really remember him forward was in the first few pre-season games in his first season with us

    I think some of us have remembered when he got dragged up the ground (to the delight of those who know he can take a good mark and kick a goal) by opposing players who made the mistake of not knowing that he could. He did some very good spot work for us this year. The english got convoluted, but I am blowed if I know how to fix it.

    We can instantly improve our lineup in 2010 by not playing Richards.

    Makes far too many howlers and the opposition target him when he has the footy.

    Kennelly in - Richards out - QED.
