    BBBH

So they get a bloke who was a star and a prize fighter as well as played the game really hard. He was the last of the hard men.

    So glad to hear he is back. He cried when he left the Swans. It was his home, his family. Now he returns to the fold, the prodigal son.

    He was a great champion. I remember shaking Barry’s hand in late 2005 at the Cargo Upstairs bar (I was always upstairs). I told him what a legend his was and how awesome the premiership was. Barry had this bemused look on his face but handled my enthusiasm like a champion.

    With Barry he said in an interview with Mike Sheehan that towards the end of his Swans tenure that young Swans players used to give it to him in the “Leading Teams” forums.

    I was appalled to hear that young Swans upstarts were giving feedback to Barry and trying to look like a leader. How dare a young Swans player question a premiership captain like Barry. He didn’t name who the young player was but I have my suspicions.

    Does anyone know who the young upstart was who dared to question Barry.

    Barry was a champion but he also had a few flaws in his capacity to control his anger. I've got no problem with any one of his team mates calling out any crap of his. He lost the trust of the leadership group, they needed him to stay composed and lead them, not sit on the sidelines suspended.

    The whole idea of the Leading Teams approach was for people to give frank feedback to each other regardless of rank.

    I agree with GS that Barry lost the confidence of his teammates in his final season with us due to poor onfield behaviour. It was a shame as he was a champion player before that. He was one of the best players in the AFL in 2005 and 2006. Our recruiting of him was a master-stroke.

    No one is immune from criticism. Yes, BBBH was a champion but he was far from perfect. It matters little who the 'young up start' was, I trust the Swans to internally work these things out if anything is seen as a problem.

    Fair dinkum mate. This is getting beyond silly and edging into crazy.

    Pretty sure it was Dan Hannebery and Nick Smith.

    The fact that Barry mentioned the leading teams feedback in his Open Mike interview means the process of a young player giving him feedback does not sit easily with him.

    I’m old school and believe that young players should not be telling older champions like Barry how to behave. The young guys should do their time and let the experienced guys talk to Barry.

    I don’t believe it was Hannenberry. In 2009, Hannenberry was a 1st year player doing high school out of Melbourne and getting himself into trouble for throwing eggs. I don’t think a high school egg thrower would have the hide to lecture BBBB.

    Nick Smith could be plausible. I’ve got some one else in mind.

    The whole concept of Leading Teams was that players - all players - were free (& expected) to comment. Have a read of BJ’s book. It’s one of the contributors to our famed and admired culture.

    You ask others to name & shame and then you say you suspect someone. Please cut the double standards rubbish and put your money where your mouth is or just give it a rest

    Enough with the bizarre witch hunt.

    You can believe whatever you want to believe, live in whatever 'yesterdays' age your mind wants to live in. But you aren't part of the football club, and this really doesn't matter.

    I’m going on what Barry Hall said. I’ve asked for information and accused nobody.

    FYI, Barry was the most important player during the Swans 2003-2006 glory run.

    If not for Barry, all of you would not have had your break through premiership.

    If Barry doesn’t like young upstarts giving him feedback then all of you should be on Barry’s side. Don’t back the accounts on the greatness of leading teams from Brandon Jack.

    @@@@ off with telling people what they should think or what they should do already..... its utterly nauseating.

    You can believe what you want. But stop trying to tell other people what they should think.
