    I think I understand his decision for sociology. Having failed in my first attempt at uni I later paired up with a close friend and we did sociology at UNSW. It helped me to a life change in work and a later change of direction. God bless Gough!

    Just to keep this thread on track, I read or heard a few years ago a former player talking about Warwick Capper being asked to organise a footy clinic at a primary school. Instead of the usual skills sessions, Wazza decided to have a match instead where he played at full forward. The story goes that he was taking marks over grade 5 and 6 kids and yelling 'Capppppeeeer!'
    Those who have the greatest power to hurt us are those we love.

    Most charismatic presenter in the AFL right now. His interview with Bud was sooooo much better than Lewis'.

    This may (or may not) be the link that Ugg tried to provide in the post above. His post indicated it was about TA.
