    Well, 'ol' mate', seeing you seem to be claiming to have known all that before Tippett came to us, you'd better donate your 'magical crystal ball' to the club so they don't 'embarrass' anyone else in the future.....yeah, it's really easy to be an all knowing smartarse in hindsight, isn't it? I could make the claim that despite having minimal injuries, Buddy hasn't delivered us a flag yet....but that claim would be about as stupid as yours wouldn't it? Hindsight geniuses are not very clever at all really......

    Well, well, well......that was you on Oct. 6th, 2012, encouraging the club to do the Tippett deal.....it seems you didn't have a 'crystal ball' after all. Hindsight really is a wonderful thing isn't it.

    Classic Swans moment! They gave him a framed photo of that when he left, if I remember right. Wonder where he is now, seemed like a good bloke if not the greatest pick-up for us.

    Game has moved on though hasn't it, we see Buddy and others do that off a step or short run almost every week.

    Boom! Now that's embarrassing.

    Er.... no. No claim from me about prior knowledge. Fake news.

    Sincere thanks for finding this post. Demonstrates my original support for Tippo. Alas, it was ground down over seasons due to the underperforming Kurt.

    No, no. I am the good guy who wanted Tippo at the Swans to begin with. Embarrassing is what happened to Tippo e.g. during the season being nominated by national media as the most overrated of afl players. Boom, Boom.

    You guys now have me chuckling at work... This is why kids need to be taught about social media as anything they put out there can come back to bite them.

    The club sticks by those who are injured in the line of duty... AJ, for example.
    He's had a foot reconstruction, again, I fully expect the club to stick by him as he recovers. He's a contracted player. If we uncontract him, we still have to pay his contract out, the money still gets counted towards our TPPs and we get nothing and gain nothing by doing it.
    From day one I said taking Tipoff was a gamble, as he is made of plastic.
    Whether you like it or not, he's staying.
    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.

    All good grarmy!.....I'm as frustrated as you are with Kurt but having seen what he can do when fully fit and firing and being an eternal optimist, I just keep on keeping the faith. I'm sure Kurt himself is slightly embarrassed at how his high profile recruitment to the Swans has panned out but I'm also sure he is trying to do his best to finally repay us and always has. He has played through injury a lot for us over time in an effort to prove himself which shows a lot of character I suppose. I have my fingers firmly crossed for next year......

    Heartfelt post. Respectful. Honest. Appreciated. And I fully support your decency. Makes me feel better after you suggested that I was an all knowing smartarse, which I thought was unnecessary and in your case, out of character. We all want Tippo to succeed.
