    Mod Announcement: We understand this is going to be a popular topic for discussion. We would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the forum rules and to keep things civil. We reserve the right to delete off-topic posts, or posts that cover old ground and don't add anything new.

    Warning to Opposition posters: This is a Sydney board, so if you must post here, please be respectful. We encourage healthy debate but baiting/trolling and abusive posts will not be tolerated.

    Reminder to Sydney board regulars: Not all opposition posters are trolls. Remember to play the ball not the person.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Given that the season is now underway and the conversation on Buddy has evolved somewhat since news of the deal broke last year, I think now is as good a time as any for a new thread to freshen up the board as the old one had amassed well over 1,000 posts and the focus has shifted from Buddy deciding to play for the Swans to how he plays for the Swans and everything else.

    Feel free to discuss any news, updates, etc relating to our highest profile recruit here!

    So much for Sydney's "no acorns" policy.

    Some guy we recruited in 2012 on close to a million a year played half of 2013 and is currently in limbo mode.

    Looking like a great investment every week.

    I never disagreed with you punts it's just i cant believe what ever is wrong with him wasn't addressed in the off-season.

    The one they got right is Shaw *touch wood*

    A joke is understatement Punts !!! Just heard Longmire say in his press conference that Tippett wont play this week or next but they hope to have him back soon. Seriously WTF ??? I will be the broken record but seriously both Tippett and Goodes sagas are a farce. Tippett supposedly had this tendonitis while he was waiting to resume from his suspension and returned to kick 30 odd goals in half the season playing with it so just get him the out there and make him earn his overstated keep.

    Maybe it is time for the club to seriously start to look for a new med department. Our injury and injury management has been exceptionally poor the last few years....pretty much cost us a chance at back to back last year

    I noticed the press are trying to start more shit with Buddy posting pics of him today at Bondi with two hot chicks in bikinis trying to suggest a rift between him and his model missus. They skip over the bit of the other two blokes there one who is Hanners who is soaking in the rays right next to Buddy.

    I will start to worry when the stories start becoming about Hanners burying his nuts in Buddy's beard.

    Are tippett and goodes poor management or do the swans just play games in the media?
