About Keiran Croker

Keiran is a lifelong Swans supporter, despite a brief dalliance with the Cats and Tigers in primary school years. Family connections to Port Melbourne and South Melbourne demanded loyalty to the Swans. The long wait for success was worth it.


  1. The reunion dinner is on tonight.
    Regrettably we lost a few comments that were posted here, following some recent internet drama.

    Good news is that the scoresheets are back.
    Have an excellent night, NCC.
