Why has there been mass walkouts at South Adelaide?

I do also believe that Rob Pyman is a good coach, and hopefully will became an AFL coach.

Is Kyle Archibald any good, what type of player is he, was there injuries that prevented him playing at an elite level.

I said he was a quality bloke. At least he had the courage to turn-up to the B&F after he was told he was gone unlike a couple of others

I reckon he did work hard while he was at the Tigers Jack - he was always working a lot harder than a few of his more "gifted" team-mates, trying to improve. Skill wise he was never going to as good as a number of others but his enthusiasm for trying to make it was great.

His kicking was his major weakness IMO

ATF - Kyle had a very severe cash of OP in his first season basically didn't play at all - except for a couple of games at Coburg late in 2004.

Kyle will be a good player at state level once someone tells him that there is no such thing as a 194cm rover!  ;)

BRIAN LEYS NEVER CAPTAINED PORT MAGPIES, AFTER HE FINSHED THERE HE PLAYED WITH GEPPS CROSS (DIV 1 AMATUERS), AND THEN COUNTRY SA (CLAIRE)

[turns volume down  ;) ]

I thought he filled in for a game or two but there you go  :-[. I also thought at one stage he was playing assistant of sorts to former coach Steven Williams, brother of the Power's Mark.

Rory finds joy of game at Euroa (Herald-Sun)

Hilton finds joy of game at Euroa
11 March 2006 
 Herald Sun
David Hastie

DELISTED by Richmond at the end of 2005, utility Rory Hilton was understandably disenchanted with football.

Dogged by injury for much of his eight seasons at the top, Hilton confessed he never really enjoyed his time in the AFL.

"My AFL career, I didn't really enjoy it that much because I was always injured," Hilton said.

"Footy's a game and you have got to enjoy it and I suppose I haven't."

After he was told by Tigers coach Terry Wallace that his contract wouldn't be renewed, the talented 26-year-old felt an enormous weight lifted off his battered shoulders.

"When I found out off Terry, I wasn't upset, let me tell you," Hilton said. "It was probably more a feeling of relief than anything. I'd had enough of AFL probably about three seasons ago to be honest.

"But I just sort of hung in there for as long as I could."

Ready to turn his back on football altogether, Hilton had a change of heart, agreeing to play with country side Euroa in the Goulburn Valley Football League this season.

"Initially I wasn't sure if I was going to bother with footy because I had sort of had enough," he said.

"Footy isn't a priority any more. I'm doing it purely to play with some mates and enjoy it."

Hilton, who kicked 54 goals in 91 matches, will return to Euroa where he played as a junior. For the first time since being selected by the Brisbane Lions with their third selection in the 1996 national draft, Hilton is enjoying his football.

The refuge of country football is a welcome escape for Hilton from the AFL landscape.

"I certainly won't go and watch the footy," he said.

"I'll still support (the Tigers) from afar, but probably my mates more so than the actual club. But that's not to say I'm bitter or anything because I loved my time there.

"I loved all the staff and everyone there but I haven't been in touch with them, not at all."

Life after AFL has been kind to Hilton. He is working full-time and studying property part-time, a welcome change from lengthy spells on the sidelines because of injury.

"I'm pretty happy just to be playing footy on the weekend and working during the week and studying and doing all normal things," he said.

"I'm loving it, wish I had have done it about five years ago."

Fleming and King aren't named on the South Adelaide playing list so it sound like they have gone elsewhere.

In the Moorabbin Glen Eira Leader newspaper there's a photo of Trent Nicholls who has joined Heatherton in the Southern Football League.
