    We must remember that in 2005 in the last game Barry passed off certain goals which would have won him the Coleman medal saying it was about the team not individual honours.
    Those who have the greatest power to hurt us are those we love.

    If Barry and the club have gotten over their differences, then I think that's great. Now he can take his place as a true champion of the club. Maybe I'll forgive and forget too.
    Where's the remote?

    I dunno... the 'I want to be remembered as a bulldog' is a little difficult for me to get over.

    It's too bad it wasn't Kirk holding up the cup rather than Hall.

    A player like McVeigh was much better. Which is partly why I like 2012 better than 2005.

    Mine too.

    It was handled very poorly by the Swans.
    And I think Hall rightly got pretty pissed about it all and ended up with some statements which were possibly said in anger.
    I never cared what he said after he was no longer at the Swans, but simply remembered fondly what he did for the Swans.
    Never considered booing him for any reason whatsoever.

    What happened with Hall is small compared to some of the older controversies.
    Anyone remember the Ricky Quade/Barry Round drama?

    Seriously people Barry making that comment while he was at the doggies was in the vain of an ex lover just being spiteful becasue he was extremely hurt! FFS we hung him out to dry..our premiership captain! Of course he was going to say that..how many of you have been in emotional situations and said things out of spite not becasue you meant them because because you were hurt!

    Baz loves the club a lot and yes he was friggen hurting badly at the time. Baz is a big kid that needs to be loved.

    If he didnt give one iota about the club he wouldnt politely declined the offer to come back for a guernsy presentation, especially knowing that you left in @@@@ty terms.

    To me Roos is now the enemy. He will be coaching against us and would'nt suprise me if we become the demons bitches for the next few years. Everytime the demons are up they flog us!

    In a nutshell liz. Thanks.

    After all the kerfuffle involved it has to be remembered that between the likes of Kirky, BBBH, Roosy, Schneider for that matter and Leo, they got us a Premiership after 72 years.

    the end.

    He was a champion footballer and I don't have a problem with the Swans recognising him for his contribution.

    But, personally, I think he's a knob. Don't have much time for blokes who king hit people from behind either on or off the field

    I can also understand why Hall needed to distance himself from the club for a while emotionally, particularly while he was playing with the Bulldogs. But I am thrilled he is now back in the fold, and that the club has acknowledged the wonderful contribution he made to the team and the club during the middle portion of the 2000s.
    Agree totally Liz

    The more i read and hear about Paul Roos the more i think he is well a @@@@@ who turns on you if you dont do things his way.

    Too much is said about Roos that is simply fiction.

    I used to like Roos a lot..

    I'm in this camp as well but it's been done to death.

    Sensational player who was pivotal to our success. Deserves his place.
