    If you are on twitter, his twitter feed has had some entertaining posts at times over the years.

    Teddy is a top bloke - remember chatting at length with him when his career looked on the rocks when flying back to Canberra after going to a game in Melbourne (he was heading up to play ressies if I remember rightly). The one thing I remember vividly from that conversation (apart from him being a good guy of course!) was the determination to give it one final red hot crack to make it at the top level. And of course he did ever so magnificently afterwards!

    All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated, and well supported in logic and argument than others. -Douglas Adams, author (11 Mar 1952-2001)

    I noticed a headline that Elijah Taylor has been back to court for alleged DV offences involving a new partner. Article was behind a paywall in the West Australian.

    Saw that same article.....but light on details as I don't have a subscription either.

    He needs help....I feel for his partners. Swans dodged a bullet there....but still got grazed.

    Disappointing that he turned a golden opportunity to mud in such a short time. X2 is particularly sad, that he did not learning the lesson and grow from it.

    We used our pick from St Kilda for trading Zac Jones on Taylor (mid 30s from memory) so we paid a price in recruiting him. We also gave him Adam Goodes' number and he trashed it. At least we had the good sense to offload him after one season. He would have been an ongoing headache for our Club.
