Coach explains why Mad Monday blunder was forgiven

Just four months ago, Sydney Swans star and then-co-captain Callum Mills came under fire for a poor off season, headlined by a freak injury during Mad Monday drinks, that led to shoulder surgery, after reportedly wrestling a teammate.

Now, he’s been named the club’s standalone captain for the 2024 season, making him just the third to have the job solely since 2005.

It’s a stark difference to the Mills who fronted the media after the incident that has cost him a chance to play the opening portion of the season.

But, four months on, the club, which announced Mills as the sole captain on Tuesday, is ready to forgive and forget Mills’ mishap.

Swans coach John Longmire put to rest speculation that the club would likely remove Mills from the leadership group for this season.

“Obviously, what happened at the end of the year, it certainly didn’t change our minds,” Longmire told SEN Radio.

“But we needed to put a bit of time in between that and the announcement.

“Everyone makes mistakes as Callum’s put his hand up to, but in the end, he was the man to lead us forward and we’ve got full faith in him to be able to learn from his experiences, but also be just a wonderful captain for this club.
