    This thread could get real nasty. Letting oppo fans in could melt the board. Good luck mods.

    Great news! Can't wait to see him in the coming years! How long do we think it'll take for him to break into the team? I've heard it takes taller guys a bit longer to get going.

    Passing the torch from Buddy and Reid to Blakey and McCartin will be sweet.

    This is absolutely fantastic news for Nick. There has been an increased focus on the mental health of players recently, and it certainly helps their wellbeing when they have the choice of playing for anyone other than norf. It is a shame that selfish norf posters want to force a young man to play for their club against his will, just to try and give themselves a bit of a boost

    Norf should just fold already. Nobody wants to play for them.

    They're living proof that having a gun forward doesn't make them any more exciting anyway

    Justifiable disappointment and anger on the North board as well as a lot of midget brained vitriol about Nick and about the Swans.

    Bit rich when in the same draft North will be gifted high pick Tarryn Thomas from Tasmania who in all honesty they've had almost no input into developing as he was already a gun footballer when they were gifted their Tassie academy.

    Nice that Nick has chosen us and that it's been announced early.

    I hope Norf fold before Brown's career finishes. He seems a terrific bloke and is clearly a gun. It would be fitting if he had the opportunity to play at a decent club before he hangs up his boots.

    Despite what #Go North! fans may think, young Thomas is not an indentured servant. He may not nom to play for Norf.

    I've seen the future and it looks good.
    Amertey pushing forward will complete the scene.

    Aye MxM. The future also includes a few pesky crumbers like Paps and Ronke mopping up the spills at the feet of the big blokes.

    The mids will inc Heeney, Mills, Lloydy's little brother (if we are lucky), Hewett and Dawson (if he comes on).

    All in all, not a bad base for the future.

    Norf board wants to kneecap Blakey. :rolleyes:
    Now I finally understand the #Go North! tag.

    No more benefit of the doubt.

    Fantastic news. Very happy. Good to secure that swans spine for another generation.

    Anyway, I’m off to feast on the vitriol and salty tears of the draft, trading and free agency board.
