"Swans back injury hit young gun?"

That is an awful title. I read it and thought "shit, Ling has a back injury, that is his career down the toilet"
Interesting... they've gone from obvious clickbait to misleading play on words... crafty mongrels

The Swans have talked about being in the Mardi Gras parade a few times in the past here and here and will not doubt make another statement leading up to this years mardi gras parade, but essentially the Swans aim to be an inclusive club - a belief which is supported by QBE

Sydney Swans said:
"LGBTI Pride is one of the four pillars of our Diversity Action Plan, which outlines our commitments to inclusion.

"We want to be an inclusive club and we want everyone to feel welcome at the football. It’s about making people feel welcome, safe and included."
QBE said:
“QBE is passionate about the positive impact an inclusive culture can have in our workplace and for our customers and partners. We’re proud to stand up and join hands with our long-standing partners, the Sydney Swans, to make our Mardi Gras debut next year, celebrating the importance of visible LGBTQI inclusion throughout the streets of Sydney.

“Our QBE Pride employee network is looking forward to marching alongside the Rainbow Swans to mark this important occasion.”

Because any discrimination or victimisation of a minority because they are a minority is wrong and any step (even as simple as having a float to show support) is a demonstrable way of showing we are aligned to inclusivity in all its forms.........against the indigenous haters who booed Goodes because he was a proud indigenous man or showing we support the right of an individual to choose a different lifestyle on sexuality other than mainstream heterosexuality. Timely reminder that the 1978 protestors were beaten and abused for being proud of their identity as gay in that protest.....and by police front line in that process. That you would need to protest your right to engage in same sex consensual sex behind closed doors is a sad indictment on our social value system back then. Gays were routinely beaten and killed back then. Ignorant victimisation is abhorrent. That is why...... we each take some responsibility for making effort to move the goal posts in the right direction protecting same rights and free will

Well said. Especially important to fly the flag these days with the nutjobs now running the asylum.

Absolute tough he was , real good player. Ray Jenke (Hawks) was giving him shit one day at Princess Park and he unleashed a great upper cut and got away with it.
He also got away with a big elbow on Roger Merritt at Windy Hill in 86, big Roger didn't know what day of the week it was.

Whilst reminiscing that was the first time I ever saw us win at Windy Hill, wet day, David Murphy kicked a cracking goal im the 3rd from the boundary 50 out.
