Chopper’s Wish Comes True

Now you Seaby, now you don’t! It seems chopper has got his wish in regard to Chopping Mark Seaby, albeit in a less violent way. As bad as it sounds, I now have a great excuse to trade him out. The last three weeks I have wanted the big guy out of destROY but have not been able to justify the trade. Now however I have no choice. Don’t get me wrong, I am happy for Mark, he has found a great home at a genuine contender and is playing his best footy. DTTALK wishes him the best of luck in returning for the finals, as long as its only with the Swans, and not our teams…… isn’t that right Warne Dawg. Here is some of his injury report from the legends at

SYDNEY Swans ruckman Mark Seaby will miss up to 12 weeks after scans revealed he required surgery to repair an ankle injury sustained against the Brisbane Lions on Saturday night.

Seaby hobbled off the field after the opening ruck contest against the Lions, effectively leaving the Swans with 21 men for the remainder of their 20-point win.

He will undergo surgery on Tuesday, leaving Swans coach Paul Roos to choose between forward Jesse White and rookie Mike Pyke as candidates to join Shane Mumford in the ruck against Geelong this weekend.

Sincere best wishes with the recovery Mark! but no thanks for the sausage (1 point) on Saturday night. Actually, we will call him bangers and mash from a DT perspective from now on. The sausage, combined with his spud scores.
