    Article about Malceski with accompanying photo of Reg, also misinformation regarding Malís surgeries

    Obviously we need to keep track of articles as they are published, I can take a virtual photo of internet ones and store them till end of season if someone can take care of the paper media

    Wish I had posted it before but it's gone now, the winner of the media stuff up award for the week surely belongs to Real Footy at the Age who listed Shane Mumford from Carlton as a choice in their player of the round poll.

    Sad indictment is that I did not have coniptions that Shane might have jumped ship mid week and nobody noticed, but just accepted the incompetence as par for the course.
    I'm not arrogant, I'm right

    Should it be pronounced "The Briarn" - and a trophy be a block of wood - to honour the shape of BT's head?

    I like the block of wood idea - perhaps a nice chunk of messmate gum. As in "What a mess, mate!"
    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)

    Them missmatching photos doesnt piss me off as much as them completely disregarding a good game from someone who has not come from a footy background.

    And by that i mean pyke and hunt.

    I couldnt help but get annoyed by Andy Maher this morning on SEN. He made the comment about St Kilda that they dont like to introduce new kids into the team and that it was something that Lyon got from his days at the Swans. He then went on to say that the Swans still don't introduce kids into the seniors until they have been at the club for a few years. I nearly choked on my shaving cream when I heard it. Fortunately, he was corrected by Tim Watson, however it is symptomatic of the Swans 'blindspot' that the media has down here.

    We may need to start categories; photo/name stuff up, general name stuff up, medical announcement stuff up, media just donít care about the Swans stuff upÖ

    Don't start me on that one! It's a pet hate of mine, where some people south of the border think that it's a god-given right that Victorians (and perhaps to a lesser extent people from SA and WA) have a natural affinity with and understanding of the game that people not 'brought up' on the game (whatever that means) will never have. It really @@@@@s me - especially when some idiot supporter of a Melbourne-based team tells me to go and watch NRL and that as a Swans fan I have no idea what I'm talking about. These people reckon that guys like Pykey and Karmichael Hunt will never succeed as they weren't playing and watching the game from birth - complete tosh...

    Rant over - I'm ok now
