    Player Watch #13 Oliver Florent - potential 5 time Brownlow winner

    Comparison seems to show that Ablett was an elite scorer while still beating Florent in almost every other area, while Florent was just getting mediocre numbers in the middle as his full-time role. Seems like a great comparison, I'm leaving it up

    Toast Complete Champions for our Club

    Franklin is a better player than Goodes. I will die on this hill (and 90% of neutrals will agree with me) No player has ever had more All-Australian selections which speaks to his incredible consistency, which is often overlooked because of his match-winning moments of brilliance EDIT: My 3...

    Player Watch #12 Josh P. Kennedy (c) - King Kennedy, the contested possession king.

    Kennedy was fine this year, still our 2nd highest clearance winner and had great output. Has been a champion for a long time, love it and I'm glad he's still around in 2022

    Past Ryan O'Keefe - 2012 Norm Smith medalist, retired 2014

    My annual repost of Hannebery going head-to-head against O'Keefe and collapsing like there was a sniper in the building, while O'Keefe charges on ROK clearly wasn't flashy enough and doesn't get enough respect for his incredible consistency and output in the middle that year

    Best I can do is Richard Cousins, but he was from SA Drafted by North Melbourne with pick #9 in 1982 Drafted by Western Bulldogs with pick #6 in 1986

    That's a great question, I assume you mean in the top 10 of the National Draft twice (not PSD etc)? I can't think of anyone, its so rare to be drafted twice, Luke Ball was a high profile one. I can't think of the answer without checking the research room

    Player Watch #41 Hayden McLean

    I don't see him ever being capable of being a dominant key forward target (although a handy 2nd / 3rd target). I'd actually really like him to be able to fill multiple roles around the ground, there is always a spot for a 197cm player who can take strong marks and contest well. If he could...

    Paddy McCartin if we redraft him. If we drafted any other gutless thug who coward punched someone off the ball, there would be an outcry.

    By far the best and highest paid player to ever come out of the Swans academy. Mills + Heeney + others combined.

    Player Watch #20 Sam Reid

    I can't see why we would get rid of Sam. Lack of talent or output hasn't seen him moved on in the past, so I don't see why it would now when he is into his 12th season in 2022 and surely on the verge of reaching his potential.

    For a foundation club born in Victoria and existing there for the vast majority of our history, with the majority of our premierships won as a Victorian club, a lot of our supporters really seem to hate Victorians.
