No Swanning around

If footy players had ‘babysitters’ would they get into any of the trouble they do?

I’m not saying that footy players are immature…although some of them….

Coco Chanel once said “As long as you know men are like children, you know everything.”

So maybe it wouldn’t be so bad for us supporters to take shifts and look after our players. Sure you can call it overbearing and smothering but sometimes that little voice in the back of their minds that says “don’t do this you idiot” is barely heard over the loud urges to just once step out of line.

If you could be in the shadow of your players, follow them wherever they go and stop them from doing something stupid like doing drugs or drinking when they shouldn’t, would you?

I know I would.  Yes it sounds crazy, even coming from me but if it means a few months going without drama at Collingwood I would do it. Simply knocking the beer out of Swanny’s hand and giving him a firm- “Do you really think this is a good idea? Two weeks or worse Swanny” could have done the trick. Maybe, just maybe he might have thought twice.

You might remember this ad from the ‘text a star’ thing. Maybe If that crazed fan was with Swanny last weekend they instead of drinking they could have been out getting matching tattoos and Swanny wouldn’t be missing two weeks…. Lol
