Taken out of context. He was saying he was a young bloke back then, and had no real attachment to Melbourne. Goes on to say:
Swallow praised the work of then-chairman James Brayshaw, who pushed to keep North Melbourne at Arden Street.

“I think the work that James and the guys that he put around the club at that stage did have gotten the club to where it is at this stage,” Swallow said.

“At the start of my career we had horrendous facilities, old portables that I think burnt down at one stage and you had homeless people sleeping in the carpark so it was pretty tough, but you sort of just didn’t know any different.”

I had a quick chat to Spitta yesterday at the game yesterday (in his Suns shirt. Seems like a lovely bloke. All the best to him.
Having dealt with him personally, can only endorse what you said, wholeheartedly. He is indeed a top quality human being.
