Wasn't Papleys trade reliant on the Daniher trade?Not that it really worries you but Sydney knew very early on the trade was not going to happen.
What they did was the opposite of Dodo. Trying to accommodate Papley's request to trade to Carlton.
They still managed to please Zac Jones request.
Daniher did himself no favours, by being late and overseas when making the decision.
But I reckon all he wanted was a acceptable contract from Dons and some clear future - DENIED and now definitely GONE!
It all worked out Papley is still a long contracted Swan.
Swans (list team) later helped Brisvegas (to their detriment they now owe Swans a favour) when Dodo wanted to raid their academy and made him more of a laughing stock!
