    Would be a shame not to see it used again.

    I hate the thought of that.
    Segregating and divisive.
    But then I've never been a fan of retiring jumpers regardless.
    The difference between insanity and genius is measured only in success.

    Embracing a young indigenous player by giving him the number of an idol is "segregating and devisive"? How so? To be frank, that sounds a bit Bolt to me......

    I think you've badly twisted what CTS is saying.

    Goodes was a great footballer and leader at the Swans, and is still a great man. While his indigenous heritage has clearly shaped him, and also influenced his leadership role within the broad AFL competition, it didn't define him as a player or a leader within the club. He was great regardless of his heritage.

    Reserving the number 37 just for a young indigenous player is what (to me, at least) comes across as "segregating and devisive", potentially at least. Any young player arriving at our club - indigenous Australian or not - should aspire to be what Goodes was and be proud to wear his number, if it was offered to him.

    Well, that's just one way we could look at it. I understand you are a moderator and would like to 'keep the peace' but maybe CTS could explain it himself? Except that now he has an 'out'.....
