    The 'events ' didn't happen yesterday. Yesterday was when they were reported. They were widely known in the football community. Like Mel C (I think), even I heard about this around the same time I heard about Blakey leaving for North.

    Very sad and concerning. Loved Rhyce as a player with us - can still picture him storming out of the backline with the ball (and then sometimes kicking it out on the full ). And he seemed to do so well and be so popular in his coaching duties with us.

    The North head coach promotion appears to have been a poisoned chalice. I hope he regains health and happiness very soon.

    I think it’s good that he’s focussing 100% on himself right now. But awful what he must have gone through.

    Agree with others and wish Rhyce all the best for the future. Senior coach is a pressure cooker and I have read that he threw everything into it. I think he will return to the scene at some point but in a less stressful, development role. He really excelled at that! We all have great memories of his time at the Swans.

    +1. Rhyce is a sensitive, good guy, who cares about people. All the best to him.

    Current and ex-swans people coached 4 out of the bottom 5 teams this year.

    I don't have much idea what happened to Rhyce except that in an extraordinary year he is dealing with significant mental health challenges. He was not just a great player and person, but also an excellent coach. Maybe we can lure him back one day? He knows what we can offer him. More likely he prefers to stay in Melbourne, close to family, but I will live in hope.

    I actually feel sorry for norf (something I never thought I'd say). Because Rhyce just didnt suddenly become sick overnight when the season ended. He would have been in a downward path from sometime in the year. So the last few games North played, they would have had a coach who was there physically but checked-out fighting his demons mentally. Can you imagine how that would have felt as a player?. Horrible situation for all.

    While on the subject of norf, they need to go with an established coach. Choco williams is about the best available. He got a flag to his name, is well respected, and god only knows how Leon Cameron got the job at the Giants over him.
