Supposedly he’s checked out of the marriage and into a mental health facility to escape the mad bitch.

Shock, horror, she enjoys spending money they don’t have and has sent them to the wall.

Not that she’s ever contributed financially in any meaningful way either, apart from making him chase coin his whole career.

Expect her to get on the front foot through the media in the coming weeks. No doubt, supported by a PR campaign that Darren is unknowingly footing the bill for.

A truly wretched human.

If only Darren had listened to his family all those years ago...
FWIW I saw DJ on the train heading to a Swans game earlier this year with one of his kids and she was decked out in Swans gear so I assume he considers Sydney his favourite club. He had the look of a man that desperately didn't want to be noticed or interacted with by anyone (including his daughter) though so maybe not

The August 1993 edition of Australian Penthouse was possibly a world first, and may yet be a world last. Its centrefold is an authorised, professionally produced selection of celebrity pornography, capturing the marital intimacies of a couple at the apex of their fame. They are Warwick Capper, freshly retired from a storied VFL/AFL football career, and his then wife, Joanne Capper.
...
"From a sports perspective, he’s one of only 28 AFL footballers in the last 110 years to kick 100 goals in a season. Did you know that? Because if you didn’t and Warwick was here, he’d tell you."

There is no way Brandon Jack would ever get published if he didn't have that name. His article in the SMH today is basically a transcription of what he overheard outside Randwick racecourse last weekend. I think it was supposed to be poignant...

I've quite enjoyed some of his other articles actually, but this one is complete rubbish.

I've enjoyed his other articles, but missed that one. He seems a bright and considered guy to me. Good role model IMO.

Just had a read through all of his 20 posts and if it isn't Andrew Dunkley it would be someone pretty close
They're calling him Andrew on the Bulldogs thread so I'm tipping it is him. Maybe he should take this opportunity to set the record straight on why he and his family deserted the club. That might be difficult to do if it is in fact sulking because Roos cut his career short.

Wayne Schwass presented at my work place today about Mental Health.

Was a great talk and positive approach to getting people to talk about Mental Health.

He identifies as an ex North player due to the premiership and it forms part of his discussion but gives a decent nod to the Swans.

Lot of respect for what he is doing and how he presents. Made me think about a few things that can help.

Very good speaker in that environment.

It's more because he didn't get a job at the club.
