If we are talking about when it actually happened, Judd I think shades the rest.
I think also that it had been a while since the best in the league switched clubs. By the time Ablett left we’d already just seen Judd move, and by the time Buddy left it was all received a little more casually.

I get the arguments for Judd, but for impact and shock Buddy for sure.

We were expected to land him and the Swans blindsided everyone.

Strangely it worked out well for everyone.

The Hawks didn't skip a beat.

We dodged a bullet, great player that he is imagine our cap with a long term Buddy contract.

The Swans git value on the field and from a marketing point of view. The trade ban was probably the only negative for anyone. :cool: We're still trying to figure out how that happened so we can get one.

Buddy got lots of money secure over his career.
