Dane Swan praises ex-teammate after urinating in a public

Former football star Dane Swan has praised ex-teammate Jamie Elliott for continuing his trouble making ways, after he was arrested for urinating in public last weekend.

Over his 13-year career Swan cemented himself as a great of the game, winning both a Brownlow and premiership medal as part of Collingwood's superstar 2011 team.

But it was his off-field efforts that equally endeared him to the public, as the leader of a group of close to a dozen party-loving teammates known as the 'Ratpack'.

And now even with the majority of his teammates in retirement, Swan is clearly keen to see the ways of the 'Ratpack' continue, telling Elliott hearing he had been arrested 'warms the cockles of the heart'.
