    doesnt say that on the swans site

    does anyone agree he is the same dimensions as AJ at 193cm ?
    There's only a few inches in it!

    now I must warn you this may make you laugh

    but after watching Wagga Harry Cunningham play the game .....fair dinkum he runs and plays a lot like the honourable Wagga lord mayor Paul Kelly at the same age

    I still remember Paul being the best in his school (same as Harry) and then scooting up to Sydney in 1990?...........from memory Kell won the best and fairest at the Swans the year after Barry Mitchell in approx 1993.......and funny enough we now also have young Barrys son Tom starting at the Swans this year also......twilight zone !

    Cunningham has the similar long legs for his height.......similar dash around the ground......similar feet out......... duck feet ...........nice over head grab.......and already Goodes is saying he is a goer

    well we did have a lunar eclipse the other night and nothing has been the same since !

    I'll look forward to watching "Richie" in the Ressies next year to see if he lives up to that hype.

    Just a little post-script on LJ, a reliable source (not a player) came into work today and let me in on a few secret home truths: LJ was apparently quite a wanker. Reportedly would aggressively yell at the physios and had a general arrogance about him that just didn't fit the club's culture, and as a result the player group wanted him out. While some of you may be skeptical, I think this story does make sense in that the coaches seemingly had no qualms about shopping around a basically untried Top-ten draft pick to other clubs. So yeah, dare we say... good riddance?

    ps. with the physio thing, that might've had something to do with his frustrations with injuries etc. Yet still, this source was quite adamant that he had a personality that didn't bode well with the leadership group/other players.

    I did hear the same thing from the only nephew of my fathers brother.

    Who knows if these things are true or not. It could be that the injuries and some home sickness contributed to LJ's demeanor and trading him back home was the best solution.

    Just as a side note to anyone following his fortunes; Kane Murphy (Son of David Murphy) who played toppie in ressies last year (and caught my attention at least) has decided to go to Norwood to get SANFL hard playing/opposition to assist in his plan to push his way to the front door of the AFL and to start bashing it down. I like his attitude and plan of action. Good luck kiddo. Make a note Kinnear! Stuey!

    I noticed in the LRT interview posted on the Swans website, LRT mentioned Mitch Morton as impressing on the training track.

    That is probably the first time in Morton's career that he has been noted for his training work.

    By his own admission, he has squandered his time at the Weagles and Wretchmond so it looks like the penny has finally dropped for him and getting him for Pick 79 may prove a bargain buy as he has always had undoubted class and X-factor.

    My daughter works at the SCG and is quite friendly with a few of the teams fitness staff and says the same thing and that it had NOTHING to do with injury. The boy is apparently a wanker through and through who has a very high opinion of himself.
