    The legend himself Mike Pyke, looking forward to it. I wonder if Brian Taylor will be watching?

    I've just watch a replay of Open Mike with Mike Pyke. It was another enormous tribute to the whole Swans culture and support.

    It seemed that the whole expectation at signing was that he could have a go (and they supported him with staff to develop; paid him above the going rate and helped him settle into Sydney). But it was unlikely be would make it, and over the years they recruited more ruck candidates Mumford and Seaby) as more likely cover.

    Mike stated more than once that he felt he was given clear and achievable objectives so he was able to work on things that were important to the coaches and the playing group - so the Brian Taylor and media rubbish were rarely distractions or negatives to his journey.

    A very impressive life story.

    I loved it when Mike Sheehan had to ask Pykey to slow down. He does talk very fast and, couple with his accent, Sheehan was struggling to understand him (that or being clever and realising that some of the viewers would be struggling).

    Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way you'll be a mile away and he'll be shoeless.
