    I wonder whether Smooch and Kizza were registered? If not, Brandon's team should lose the game for fielding unregistered players!

    I'm guessing it's just likely that a couple of guys wanted to have a run around.
    I knew him as a gentle young man, I cannot say for sure the reasons for his decline
    We watched him fade before our very eyes, and years before his time

    For me the more interesting take away from this story is the inference that Brandon isn't himself rinsing his local AFL 9s competition.

    Story about Darren Jolly in the HUN. Can't get past the paywall and refuse to put a cent into Murdoch's pocket, but the teaser quotes Jolly as having had severe mental issues resulting in him contemplating suicide.
    Those who have the greatest power to hurt us are those we love.

    Participating in reality TV can have that effect.....

    Ted Richards.....what's he up to? Getting admitted to the Swans Hall Of Fame, that's what.....along with James Alexander Young, Terry Brain and Bernard Toohey!

    2012 flag hero among four Swans added to club Hall of Fame

    His interview is typical modest Ted......legend! Toohey's is worth watching also.

    So richly deserved our man Ted! You won't find a nicer bloke going around, and he is doing so very well in his post footy life too by the sounds of it!

    Its players like him and LRT (plus lot of those other '2nd chance' lower draft pick players) that made that 2012 premiership so damn good - against a very, very good Hawthorn team.

    Mate just sent me a link to his local paper announcing that Xavier Richards has joined the Old Xaverians Amateur club in Melbourne.

    I think Ted went to Xavier, and suspect X did as well..makes sense.

    There was quite a Xavier contingent here at one time. Hanners was another.
