I'm still not sure whether Macca pulled the right rein, saddling up for this season. In terms of his long term future I would have thought a year in a Hodge role at the GoCo may have served him better.

Still, it is great he seems in such fine fettle and is clearly fired up for 2019. He is such smart footballer and I hope all the kids (who he seems focussed on) listen deeply and learn both on the training track and in games.
This is exciting. Kept me up this afternoon

McVeigh had just made it back to the Swans reserves team after missing most of the year with a calf tear, but he has cruelly suffered a repeat of the injury and his playing future beyond this year is now in serious doubt.

That'll do, Jarrad. That'll do.

Hopefully he can get back for a farewell game because he deserves to get chaired off the ground but I think he's done. Going to make a very good coach if he chooses to.

That really sucks. We could do with him in defence to free Lloyd further up the ground. He's an absolute champion of the club and been unfairly maligned on this board.

There is no substitute for an elite ball user and IMO he has been our best for over a decade. As BBB Hall once said: "He does not waste 'em"

Whatever happens for the remainder of the season he is an automatic AFL Hall of famer and Swans legend for mine.
Premiership captain with 300+ games, two times club champion and All-Australian. Hell of a legacy.

Like I said a few days back, the best of our club may be behind us with the era of one club, 300 game players well & truly gone IMO with the way the trading rules have been opened up. We've been blessed to have a few of them these last 10 years.
Goodes, MOL, Bolton, Macca.
Legends of the club in my eyes & I don't care what anyone else says.

We have had a blessed patch in terms of if you picked south/Sydney’s top 20 players we have seen a lot of them recently imo
