    Well, when I was speaking with AJ and his parents after the game, I said to him that I'm loving the way that he's flying under the radar. No one is tagging him and because of this he actually gets a bit of ball. He agreed. His father is taking all the credit for him. I said yeah, but mum washed his uniforms, so she wins!! They are great people. I love our extended swannies family.
    Give AJ time.

    As for the Rangs ... we love Ranga.
    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.

    You've just described Craig Bolton. Who could possible be offended. I agree with you 100% and good job we know that players like AJ are priceless.

    Not many.
    All you've gotta do is hang around the front doors of the club (with the other 20 or so people there) and wait for the players to come out.
    We do 3/4 of the aftermatch function, then head downstairs to say g'day.

    I've likened AJ to Ben Hart.

    I hope he turns out near as good.....

    Don't.
    It'll be wrong.

    He does those important things really well, but they're not spectacular enough to win RS nomination.

    On the upside, the writer on the AFL website rates Sam as one of the top five candidates this year (along with Heppell, Zac Smith, Shuey and D. Swallow).

    Problem is:
    What counts against [Reid] is the fact that, like the Brownlow, it is seen as largely a midfielder's award with no tall forward winning it since Nick Riewoldt in 2002.
    The man who laughs has not yet heard the terrible news

    Heppell and Shuey will be the ones but in all seriousness, Sam is holding down a key position like an old stager and should be right at the top of the list as well. He is going to be massive for us. He is 19!!!!!

    I'm serious. If Heppell and Sam went on the open market tomorrow, I'd reckon Sam would be in more demand.

    That's not a knock on Heppell, he's a fine young player, but KPP like Sam are as scarce as hen's teeth as opposed to Heppell types who are all over the place....
