Swans dump Ricky Mott!

The sydney swans have dumped exciting youngster Ricky Mott,Mott a 21 year old ruckman played in 17 matches this year and has opened up alot of interest to a fair few clubs including essendon who now are becoming rather keen after the retirement of paul salmon and de-listing of Steve alessio respectively.

Gee-whiz ... delisted for rocking up to pre-season training 12 kilos overweight.

On the one hand it is unprofessional of the lad, but on the other hand how hard would it be to lose 12kgs during summer training?

Carlton sent Lance to the fat-farm after all.

I think the Swans will regret that decision - truly decent ruckmen are like hens teeth these days.

"They picked on the wrong man - and the wrong country. It was like pouring petrol onto a fire as far as I was concerned.

There's an old saying that the dog that barks loudest never bites. They did a lot of barking but we bit them pretty hard. Uruguay's attitude just showed how scared they were of us - it was their last resort."

Would this have anything to do with Sydney's salary cap concerns? Just seems a little wierd that they would release a promising ruckman just because he gained a few kilos during the off-season....
