    List Mgmt. 2020 Draft Watch

    Usually, this would (hopefully) be way too early to start up unless you support Carlton or Melbourne. However with things as they are, I need something footy related to speculate on outside of "will be play again this year". So, lets talk the potential of the 2020 Draft (if it goes ahead)...

    Strategy Game plan, positioning and everything else.

    Thought that it may be an idea to start a topic purely relating to game plan, strategy and tactics for this year as we are almost at the season proper. One of the most debated (and angst worthy) topics from season 2014 was that of our game plan, largely a lack of plan b. Have a look at the...

    Policies: What do you want to see?

    As the title says, what policies would you like to see to improve Australia in the medium and long term? Personally I am holding out for a government that would try and proactively try and shift our economy away from a two-sped one. Proactive policy in regards to research and development of...

    As the name implies, the decisions that are ridiculously bad and a touch iffy. Tonights: The penalty decision Croatia's disallowed goal. Can confidently say will not be the last poor decisions this tournament.

    Swans mids

    Now, in the unlikely event that the removal of cola biting and the coupling of a possibility of a few good f/s and academy players, the swans may need to move a mid on. Players such as may find a new home (all contracted): Hannebery Parker Mitchell Swans need a first ruck and KPD. So in this...

    Autopsy Swans Vs Pies: 3 Things That You Learned - R20,2013

    Feel that there wasn't a huge amount to be learnt from that game so instead feel it may be more beneficial (see therapeutic) to actually break the game down: First and fore most our midfield got done. Was it that the pies were better, timing our/their run or just their night. Either way we...

    By the byeing a holiday

    So, with a weekend of no footy for us to be REALLY interested in as both Seniors and Ressies are having a holiday, what are your plans? For me it is boring as it comes with an essay due on Monday so I'll probably be procrastinating until Sunday Arvo.

    Things you've learned in DT 2013

    As the title suggests it is thing that you have learnt for this year. I'll start it rolling: 1. You are always best off trusting two premo rucks 2. If a player has had nil to very limited preseason chances are they won't be in round one 3. Mature age rookies value far outweigh 18yo rooks 4...

This year for swans we need: 1. KPF: With Goodes up forward for probably 2-3 years at best Sydney need to...

    Opinion The mini draft picks.

    Hey all, I'm curious as to what a pick in the mini draft would approximately cost this year as I peraonally believe that the swans should have a crack. So as supports of the club what do you realistically want from each club for the number one pick?

    2012 Draft

    Operation get Brodie Grundy initiated? I'd love us to produce a ruck of our own as our development team is amazing. Anyway, to be honest i think seaby's rucking was one of the lesser bads of last nights game in comparison to our f50 entries and ball use rebounding from our defensive 50.
