Thread: Past players - what are they up to?

    Past players - what are they up to?

    Dean Towers appointed playing coach of University of NSW-Eastern Suburbs joining Brandon Jack. Best of luck for 2019. Great that former Swans are remaining to bolster the local clubs.

    Good writeup about Towers’ new role:

    ‘Towers said he would be eternally grateful to Sydney for giving him an opportunity as a 22-year-old.

    "It was just a great experience, and it will hold me in really good stead for the rest of my working life pretty much," he said.’

    Delisted Swan signs as player/coach for Sydney club - AFL.com.au

    I wonder why Brandon Jack isn't playing NEAFL - more commitment than he wants to make now that he knows he isn't going to make it as an AFL player and wants to focus on his studies etc? In Deano's case it's a bit clearer because he wants the opportunity to gain coaching experience. Pretty massive contributors for a Sydney AFL side!

    I remember when he got drafted his UAI was over 99, so probably has the brains to do whatever he wants.
    The eternal connundrum "what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object" was finally solved when David Hasselhoff punched himself in the face.

    Probably should have read the press release before posting that!

    Kieran just got his MBA, and do I recall that his father was a pretty sharp tack as well? Seems like a bright family.

    Lol! Although he wouldn't be the first muso to be bright and gifted academically. Just ask Dr Brian May or Dr Bryan Holland,

    And Prof Brian Cox.

    Actually, maybe it's all about being called Brian (however spelt).
    My opinion is objective truth in its purest form

    My take away from Towers' comments is a sense of gratitude and zero claims of entitlement. I applaud the young man, who has just been delisted, yet carries himself with class. Wishing him every success as a prospective coach.
