    Our coach is taking his nickname too seriously.

    We won't win another premiership now until they move the final from the MCG to Flemington.

    Jamie Barkley has been the CEO of the SCG for some 20 years, and has just been appointed as the CEO of the ATC. Relationships always help

    Sounds like a good overall fit. Is there really that many people that drive to Randwick though that the parking loss will be really noticed, outside of the very big race days?
    "You get the feeling that like Monty Python's Black Knight, the Swans would regard amputation as merely a flesh wound."

    Hope that they do a safety audit for low-slung chains and whatever the hell it was that Callum Mills tripped over.

    Swans move training base to Randwick Racecourse

    The Club has been desperately seeking a new training location for several years now. This seems to be an excellent solution given it’s location is not at all far from the SCG and where the players tend to live (around Bondi and Coogee). I can imagine there will be opposition though from the NSW Racing Fraternity who don’t tend to follow AFL and will have their parking options reduced. Some really good Ling-term news for the Club when injury news was souring everything else. Interesting that this has yet to make the AFL news yet?

    Sam Reid will probably get colic.

    But does it mean the training base will move to Randwick as well. Seems like a drag to have rooms, Gym at the SCG, and then training ground over at randwick.

    No worries, barry. The new locker room and training facility will be the best in the business.
