    I like how they owned the pick.

    Clearly wanted him. Up to him to perform now.

    Jewelsbon, I gave up long ago trying to read his acronyms. I figure that someone standing in a social circle speaking unintelligible gibberish that no one can remotely understand isn't really trying to communicate with others at all but trying to make a statement about themselves which I also ignore. Makes life simple that way

    This video found me as it turned up on my youtube feed. It is very quiet though



    Edit, I don't think it is him.

    Dan87 well done on having Ling and McCartin in your drafts picks last Sunday
    "If Murphy's (#39) there we've been rumored to have verbally told him that we'll take him
    If Stephenson ( #6) slides I expect it will take us <5s to call out his name
    After that I think there's a group including Brander (#13), Richards (#16), and Bonar (#11) that would interest us.
    I think some of the better SA kids are gone with our second so we won't get a look at Houlahan or Ballard. Might be where pick up someone like Tom McCartin but I think he's probably gone too. Maybe Hayes is there. Maybe Ling is there. Maybe Jackson Ross (#71) goes here
    We have a few guys we like that are ranked between our two picks from my eye"

    Also apparently this is Matthew Ling, it was a media assignment, a "what if" of sorts.

    Hmm. Ling. Must be the first Chinaman to pull on a Swans Guernsey?

    I can't see any of the three draftees playing next year. They all need to bulk up first

    I must say at the time i was hoping to get Higgins for our first pick but after reading a bit about him and watching a few highlight videos im bloody happy with this kid. between him and Stoddard he can hopefully free up Jones/Mills to play spend some more time in the midfield as some of you guys have already said. Although having said that i do think Mills is a real asset for us down back despite being drafted as a mid but the way he reads the ball i think hes probably best suited to staying down back for the time being, so it might mean we see Jones as a pure mid moving forward.

    Apparently, a non-Victorian club never even considered drafting Ling because they deemed him a big flight risk. I hope they are wrong.

    If that's a correct assumption, playing for the team you supported might negate that.

    3.5/5 for speed seems a bit on the nose

    Mentioned florent a he is the outside type player that will be competing with ling for their spot. Cunningham is done, the club is admitting we need more run. Not going to play Cunningham when ling and florent are waiting unless injuries hit

    Fair call but Florent is ahead of Ling until we see what Ling can do. I suspect Ling will have the exact same hurdle Florent had in his first year, which is that he's still too raw and not quite ready for senior footy yet. Either way he looks the goods

    It is odd when you consider the description where he is described as one of the fastest in the draft. Could be a result of disappointing results at the combine.
