    Yeh Capper made a career ending decision when he left for the $$$. He has also said it in interviews several times that they refused to pass it to him.

    In Wiz's defence, though he received nearly $1.2M for his 3 years with the Bears, the Swans effectively sold him to the Bears for the nearly $500K transfer fee to raise some much needed cash for Sydney (back when there were transfer fees)

    Yeh the old days of transfer fees that nearly sent clubs bankrupt. Ask a few Collingwood n Richmond supporters about it n you'll see a look of disgust n fear on their face lol

    Capper told my brother and I at a Swans function in Melbourne in his last year, that the coach didn't like him. I believe it was Col Kinnear.

    Hope he gets his body right during the pre-season. I think we can still use him for a season or two unless we unearth or recruit an A grade ruckman

    With regards to Tippy's body letting him down, on another thread (mid season after he injured his ankle for the second time in an innocuous incident) I suggested that he might have unstable ankles from recurrent injuries (ankles that aren't well managed early - & I'm speaking generally, not suggesting poor management by the Swans medical staff) as he was recovering quite quickly after each injury (eg he would roll an ankle early in a game but could resume later in the game).
    I have no insider knowledge at all but it appears that he's having corrective ankle surgery during the off season. If it's any form of stabilisation, it will hopefully eliminate ankle problems in future. He seems to be over his Crows concussion issues. It might be that he will be fresher than he has ever been for us.

    If he is having the the surgery, which club would take on an injury prone ruckman, with a hefty contract (regardless of how much the Swans pay).

    I personally think he will stay, with the club expecting that his ankle woes will be resolved surgically and once he has adequately rehabbed it, he will be the forward/ruckman we envisioned he could be - a great foil for Buddy & a great back-up for Naismith

    Tippett!!

    I tend to think that we are stuck with him given his hefty contract. He has little trade currency. We can only hope that he can return from injury and find some form.
