    Fantastic interview with Ted Richards on the TAB Inside 50 podcast with Shane Crawford and friend. (Over an hour long and mostly about his time at the Swans.) He talks about how close they got to the flag in 2006 and the fact that they had so many injuries during that game that Leo Barry had to stay on the ground after he'd done his hamstring. Well worth a listen, including that Shane Crawford was set to join the Swans at the end of 2005 but when we won the flag that year he thought he'd missed the party and decided to stay at hawthorn and try and get them a flag.

    Those who have the greatest power to hurt us are those we love.

    Thanks TBC. Very enjoyable and entertaining. Teddy could always talk underwater!

    28 - Brandon Jack - 9781760876777 - Allen & Unwin - Australia

    Unsure if this has been mentioned, but Brandon Jack's memoir 28 is out in August. The by-line looks good too: A Memoir of Football, Addiction, Art, Masculinity and Love.

    Not sure we couldn't afford to pay Mitchell because of demands of JPK, Parker, Hanners & Jack.

    Thanks for the heads-up on this Mark. Looks as if it will be well worth a read. Brandon is a remarkable young man.

    Should be a good read. He is an excellent writer and speaks/presents exceptionally well - so definitely one to look forawrd to.

    This article from about 18 months ago gives some insights into Brandon Jack’s life post footy and the memoir about to be published.

    Thanks Meg - an interesting light on Brandon, whose forays into journalism I always enjoy. I'll get the book.

    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!
    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)
