    Other than the fact he brought someone's race into comment when it wasn't necessary? I'm not outraged or anything, but it could be interpreted as underlying a particular sentiment he may hold...

    Totally agree with you Captain, if that's the worst thing I hear or read this weekend I'll be happy.
    I was imagining much worse when I first read the comments.

    I get what you're saying Primmy, and the post was ordinary at best. I guess I'm saying that a) I'm sure the club keeps a close eye - easy enough to "follow" all the players on Twitter - and b) I'm not sure Jenny should be made responsible for responding to the boys' social media activity, especially when you/we could always just reply directly.

    Can I just say that while I understand it's part and parcel of being a professional sportsperson these days, I am SOOOOO happy nobody was watching/recording my every move at that age? (Or at this age!)

    (PS - Footy + wine + internet access = DANGER WIL ROBINSON!)

    Footy + wine + internet + TS14 sale = disaster.

    God I hate political correctness, it was probably started by some self righteous, self indulgent, self centred wanker who thought he coulf make a few bucks in a courtroom somewhere. Now it's a freakin epidemic of complete bull@@@@. On the news this morning I saw an Aussie guy trying to sue because someone said g'day mate to him in England, RACISM my ass

    YES!!
    "Build it and they will come" was the theory. Seems most are keeping away, and it's sadly out of date.

    So anyway, how about RWOers on Twitter? I am, check my profile. Is anyone else? Is there a hashtag we RWOers can use for Swans games this season or are we all using #goswans?

    To be honest I think there's a lot wrong with what he said, but I imagine it was just a flippant comment.
    I knew him as a gentle young man, I cannot say for sure the reasons for his decline
    We watched him fade before our very eyes, and years before his time
