    Not confirmed obviously, but he would dominate at that levell
    If his body is good enuff to play for Strath, and he’s on our rookie list anyway, why isn’t he playing in our reserves in the NEAFL. Could be the difference come NEAFL finals time

    He prefers to play in the higher ranked competition.

    If he's on our rookie list, doesn't that mean we ARE free of his salary within the cap?

    The Sydney Swans have today delisted Kurt Tippett.
    In keeping with AFL rules and regulations, it is the club’s intention to re-draft Tippett in the upcoming AFL Rookie Draft so that the club can fulfil the terms of an agreed settlement.
    Tippett, who retired from AFL football in January 2018 due to injury problems, is not fit for football and has no intention of returning to the AFL.
    With this statement we consider the matter closed. No parties will make any further comment.
    Except this party!!!

    Oh my. If you are well enough to play in god-knows-where, you are well enough to play here.
    Backup ruckman. We may only need him once... providing he can go the whole game without getting injured.

    He's a lovely bloke, but... Seriously. Ripped. Off.
    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.

    An absolute shocker....

    And it will also apply to anyone who complains about the Hannerbury deal in the future, if he happens to be a gun again......

    What's done is DONE.....move on.

    Seems plain enough to me.....

    +1. Agreed supporters should "get over it". It's done and nothing can be changed.

    I won't "get over it" until he's off the list.

    And would we want the best thread ever to fade away and die just yet anyway???

    For now.
    I predict a killer pre season for him

    I imagine the training regime and playing intensity of our NEAFL team is many degrees higher than in an amateur suburban or country league.
