It's a good point you raise. The club can only do so much then the onus is on the players to set a standard and change the on field expectations of each other.

Counter point, Jason Creek had a horrific record at SWFC leading to his de-registration.

He then successfully played country football for a decade without incident.

4 weeks into resuming his career at SW he was again de-registered.

One person, but there would be something apparently in SW's culture whereby players who are appropriately in-line else where are out of line at SW.

I've said it before but look into the SW President's comments after the 2005 Grand Final. Not embarrassment, not contrition, but "we play hard, tough football not ballet". To speed it into modern times pulling your U18s from a Grand Final because you can't guarantee their behaviour.

The situation is more than the sum of its parts.

Jason or Tyson?

Personally I think they should be able to.

A group of juniors coming through understanding why the club does not have senior sides will hopefully be a catalyst to a cultural change.

Having no juniors, and then allowing them back in a year or so to which they will just recruit back the same players with no 'new' juniors coming through will not help any cultural change.

Yes, different governing body.

Can’t have U18’s or women’s though I don’t think?
