Yeah I reckon it was JezzaThere is a picture on page 77 of today’s Sunday Herald-Sun in Jon Anderson’s column which purports to be David McKay taking a mark over Ray Card in the 1978 Elimination Final - it looks more like Jezza than David McKay to me - anyone else have an opinion on it.
Also no question that David McKay is criminally underrated in the general football world - 4 Premierships, 250+ games.no question - buzz took a few rippers over 2 or 3 years - swan took them every game for a dozen or so...............
A terrific watch, thanks for pointing that one out! Can't believe I hadn't seen it.For those with Kayo: https://kayosports.com.au/shows/show-open-mike!2971/season-2019!15931

, I think.
Sorry, that's the whole season of Open Mike, you'll need to scroll across to the David McKay episode.
You're welcome. Yeah, talk to anyone who watched the blues during the seventies and there's enormous respect for Swan. He was a class act, no doubt about it.A terrific watch, thanks for pointing that one out! Can't believe I hadn't seen it.
I must admit he is a bit of an unknown to me given the era difference, but he comes across as a learned, considered and humble champion. Looks to have given plenty to our great club over the journey. I'm sure my grandma would have been a big fan and I will ask Johnno next time I have a chat about what Swan was like
