    He'd come in handy a bit later in the year as injury cover....

    Or to give the young under-developed bodies of undersized ruckmen a bit of a rest mid-season. And when Tippett displays All Australian form, is injury free and canít be dislodged from the side, his recruitment is finally vindicated.

    Itís the romantic in me

    Said I remember when we used to sit
    In the Courthouse Pub in Newtown
    Oba, ob-serving the hypocrites
    As they would mingle with the good people we meet
    Good ruckmen we have had, oh good ruckmen we've lost along the way
    In this bright future you can't forget your past
    So dry your tears I say

    No ruckman, no cry
    No ruckman, no cry
    Oh my Little sister, don't shed no tears
    No ruckman, no cry

    So, according to the Daily Telegraph 4 hours ago (the most recent article) the Swans seem to have ruled out a last minute SOS to Tippett?

    Unfortunately I canít read the full article. Can anyone shed any light on that?

    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.
    Blessed are the cracked for they are the ones who let in the light.

    Surely the swans would have to turn to tippet if we had another serious ruck injury. I've bet they have told him to keep in shape.

    Realistically, all of this talk is fun, but silly.

    Already he'd have a bit of work to do to get back in shape.
    Once his ankle heals, he'd have to then gain match fitness etc and best chance of playing would be at the end of the season. Physically.
    Mentally is a different matter, and you'd think he was pretty much done in that respect if he retired.

    Only thing to really be gained from a comeback is exposure and press for the Swans, and in that case I'd be all for it
    The difference between insanity and genius is measured only in success.

    Maybe they can take the best bits from Sam N and the best from Tippo and create an invicible ruck cyborg ready for the 2019 season?

    Okay, I'm already voting for Naismith's ankles and Tippett's hair.
    So, I've done my bit. The rest of you can work out all the other components of the cyborg.

    ....and it will be known from this day forward as Kurt Cob (an anagram of ruckbot).

    Nice one Stevo!
    "You get the feeling that like Monty Python's Black Knight, the Swans would regard amputation as merely a flesh wound."
