Bazza enquires with Paul Roos as to whether it would be ok to punch a journalist as his final act in Swans colours. Looks like Roosy is giving it some serious thought!
Wow. Barry Hall’s time with the Sydney Swans, and probably AFL footy, is up. Surprised? No, neither am I. It wasn’t like he pretty much forecast it in print late last week or anything…
If Barry does want to find a new club in 2010, this is probably why it won’t be the West Coast Eagles.
Controversy has pretty much been his middle name during his playing days, although his strength and influence did help catapult the Swans into the AFL elite and a long awaited premiership. But his inability to control his aggression has prematurely ended his time in Sydney.
Oh yeah, that’s right. He’s a premiership captain! Easy to forget sometimes…
So, I wonder what Barry will do now…Duh, we all know that – punch blokes for a living! Business as usual, you might say. Well, this time the other guy will be punching back.
Just when it appeared that he found a way to do dumb things and hit people without getting suspended…
…that Ben Rutten and his pesky jaw went and ruined everything!!!
Making the decision to step away from footy now is probably for the best. He has time to jump into the boxing ring at least once before he has to decide if he has one more season of footy in him. I think he really needs to fight somebody in the ring, make a shiteload of money in the process, and then decide if that is what he really wants to do with himself.
Gloves on, arms pumping, no umpires in sight – look how happy he is!
But if he wants another crack at AFL, which club would take such a gamble? All sixteen will be quizzed about Hall ad nauseum from now until the end of the season, probably after every loss. They will all be hoping that Baz just leaves the gloves on and saves them all the trouble!
