Maybe the go home factor wasn’t an issue when he re signed though Mick , things in life change from day to day

I bet B Hill wasn’t thinking of moving back to Melbourne either
Again, he hasn’t gone and just like Papley, is contracted. Just like Tim Kelly last year.

Of course we can hold him to it

Kelly is off this year though so what’s the point if only going to ask in 12 months
Inside info. Geelong and Kelly talks have been very productive. His Mrs has settled down and the club (I won’t say optimistic) are confident that he’ll be retained. In the case that he wishes to go back to WA, the destination club are going to have to offer far more than last year and Geelong won’t back away from that. This info was pre Lyon sacking too (about 2 weeks ago)!

No sure why he is meeting with Freo and Wce then

Imo no inside info is that he will be in Western Australia next year

He doesn’t want to derail season so why say otherwise I guess

But that’s totally my opinion and your source is probably right

It'd be interesting to see where he sits on goal assists too, because I reckon it'd be quite high.
#1 at Swans. #6 in AFL for total, #18 for average (all min 5 games) with 0.91 per game.

Next best (average) is Parker 79th in AFL with 0.64 followed by Franklin 95th at 0.6.

Carton have pick 8 as it stands...

If Carlton recruit Paps and Coniglio they should make the 8 in 2020.
Agree we should keep him but if he really really wants to leave we might as well cash in while his stocks are high.

Tell Carton pick 8 or GAGF.
So which one is it, both players for pick 8 OR pick 8 for Papley and Coniglio goes for...ducked if I know!

Coniglio is a RFA, Blues will make sure the contract means GWS will take the compo pick, could be as high as pick 12 if they lose first week against the Dogs. Would give GWS 10, 11, 12, first one burnt to match our bid on Green!

Rumours have been going around on this one for a while (Believe they actually started on Bigfooty as well).

But his contracted for next year (And not even a free agent in 2020).

I would be putting my money on him staying personally, not worried in the slightest.
The bloke that started those rumours is Damien Barratt. He also started the rumour Parker would be leaving. Barratt hates the Swans. He hardly ever says anything positive about us. Mind you he hardly ever has anything positive to say at all. It is all sniping as far as I can see.

Paps will be at Swans in 5 years. We are building for a premiership and all the current players are onboard
