    I wouldn't normally make such a tasteless comment but we might be in for a "flopping" free 2019 :-)

    Wonder who will go to Buddy in R5 at Docklands?

    I managed to restrain myself, but it was difficult.

    ....and a crystal ball....which he or no one at the Swans have. Easy to be a post event expert....

    Well we have not officially lost Tippett yet as he is still on our rookie list. He seems to be pretty fit still with his swimming so there is still the very remote possibility that he could be Mr. September similar to Clark Keating for Brisbane. I don't expect it but why has he not been officially removed from our list?

    Newman couldn't get a regular game and Nankervis would now be behind Sinclair and Naismith.

    Nuh. Without Rance there is no backline.

    He has to stay there for salary cap reasons.
    Those who have the greatest power to hurt us are those we love.

    I have always wondered about that and have found myself hoping for a fairytale return where he would finally deliver on his massive contract and help us win our next flag.....by starring.

    I like to be optimistic.....

    Terrible news about Rance, I know he cops a bit of criticism but I thoroughly enjoy watching him play and battle with the best forwards whenever I get a chance.

    I wonder if this will open the door for Phil Davis to earn an All-Australian guernsey (if he can stay on the park)? He's been on the cusp for a few seasons now. Obviously I'd prefer a fairy tale and for Reg to take the default Rance AA place.

    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

    Collingwood v Geelong. I've optimistically tipped the Cats. I have to say Gary Rohan looks ok in a Geelong jumper and I wish him all the best at his new club and good luck for tonight.
