Thanks so much!

Wow, quite the clean-out.

Whole bunch of fresh faces for me to get to know.
We have a few jumper numbers to allocate for 2020
1, 2, 3, 10, 15, 17, 21, 28, 37 (let's hang this up a little longer), 39, 40, 43, 47
Lewis Taylor had #28 at Brisbane so takes 28?
Sam Gray had #46 at Port Adelaide
Kaiden Brand had #30 at Hawthorn

With a fit Franklin, we’re always a chance of playing finals.
The thing is when Buddy is fit he was still super damaging this year. Always took him 2 or 3 games to find fitness but when he did he started kicking good bags of goals, before getting injured again.
I think the last 3 games Franklin played this year against West Coast, Hawthorn, and St Kilda ... we looked every bit a top 8 team. They were the only games all year where he looked fit.

Swans website's player list is off-air right now (possibly being updated with new headshots etc). Anyone got a current list?
Given the Swans history of head shots I doubt it. They don't usually upload those until just before the season starts.

Kidding, right?
I don’t really get romantic about the numbers. Couldn’t care less really!
Me neither, unlike some I'm buggered if I can even remember many of them a few seasons after they retire, but when you think of all the unwarranted schitte heaped on one of our greatest champions ever at the end of his career, I think there's a case for retiring 37 permanently, just to make a point.

I agree. When you're playing you can't see your own number either. No.1 is good for your no.1 ruck however so that you can spot them more quickly.

How long does it take a broken toe to heal ? Sometime I wonder if players might have an injury that's too sensitive to discuss publicly, like a torn scrotum, an infestation of pubic lice or an anal fissure. I had a mate who had a huge boil on his butt which needed lancing in hospital. He was a good looking young guy and the nurses were changing his dressing several times a day.
Is there a second part to this story?
