Barry to wear special Guernsey to avoid strife

Just watch out for head butts.

Hall has missed the past two matches because of an attempted striking charge and a separate club-imposed ban, with rumours circulating personal problems were behind his poor on-field behaviour.

He has been recalled for the Crows game after feedback from the Swans' psychologist, and Craig says Hall will be challenged fairly by the Crows.

"If you expect our players to comment to Barry about his current situation and his personal issues I would say no," he said.

"But if you expect them to play hard, tough footy and run into him and verbalise him just as he verbalises other people, that's been going on for years."

In reality, the AFL has sanctioned the first AFL straight jacket in a bid to keep Slugger on the pitch and keep sponsors and rights holders happy. Club officials are feverishly working on the logistics of colouring the jacket and ensuring that sponsors logos are clearly visible.

Being a die-hard Swannies fan I feel I should point out an error-
Hall won't be challenged fairly as any player with an ounce of commonsense will give him a wide berth.
He's a loose cannon who's never consistently played to his full ability and a piddly 2 weeks suspension away from footy is certainly not enough time to resolve any emotional issues he may take with him onto the ground.
It's time he retired.
How's that for a fair view? :P

Very balanced.

It is quite obvious that any player worth their salt will spend the entire afternoon trying to provoke a reaction.

I think Barry should try another career. How about rugby league. Perhaps a couple of seasons at Hull or Wigan will sort out his feelings of aggression.

"I think Barry should try another career. How about rugby league. "

How about bare knuckle Monopoly or knock down, drag 'em out Scrabble at dawn?

Having said that, unlike a lot of other footy players I don't think he's dumb. But I could be quite wrong.

(Well, given I Barack Obama for Collingwood, what would I know?.)

Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm going
to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm
looking for something unique. P.

Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless
I'd figured I'd ask. Would you be interested in trading links
or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My site covers a lot of the same
topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot
