I just saw the worst news on facebook and came here to see if it was true. Turns out facebook was right.

Cheers to another 5 years of not fulfilling our lists potential.

also someone needs to check on Tedeski as he is going to have an erection that is not going to go down for days.
Him and Balnarring Bruce can show each other.

You don't think the team have played to a high standard considering the current list profile?
Not really talking about current list profile, though we have had some very poor performances this year. I am more talking about how Longmire has no imagination at all and that he is regularly and consistently outcoached by the oppositions coach, especially in the big games.

You'd think most coaches/fans would be happy with 3 grand final appearances in the last 7 years...

Granted, criticism has been fair at times but I'm buoyed by the way John has managed to work with what he's got this year and tinker with the plan round by round. Promising signs for the future at this point.

Well, that's all you can appoint on mate. You're in transition and playing above expectations, IMHO, there's not much else he could realistically achieve, and I don't think the Swans are the sort of team that engages strip down rebuilds, so you would expect the same to continue.

We extended Scott's contract for basically the same reason.

BTW, there's no disgrace in getting out-coached by Clarkson, who I reckon is a genius.

However even when he has one of the best lists he never extracts as much as he should from them.
That is fairly subjective imo...

2014 we played a team that won 3 in a row, pretty chock full of talent themselves (*2014 was a s**t performance however).

2016 everyone expected to fall back a bit but we somehow made a grand final, and if we had a bit more luck, would probably have won it.

Our depth has been poor 17-18 and even 19.

Anyways... it’s all subjective :)

Majority of Swans fans are not happy with Longmire's coaching style and not happy that the Swans are so easy to plan against. It means in the big games against good opposition we struggle. There are a few people on this board that would defend Longmire no matter what, but on this board generally speaking Longmire is somewhere between dislike, and having a very lukewarm praise of him.

and getting outcoached by whoever was in charge at the Bulldogs, not to mention Nathan Buckley and even Simon Goodwin.

Imagine being upset at the club re-signing the coach with the second best win record in the league, with a good record of player development because you have some weird hang up about game style you can't even explain.
Perhaps because majority of Swans fans know we won't win another flag under Longmire. If we can't win the flag with him, why re-sign him. The Swans board are happy to be "thereabouts" but seemingly don't care too much about actually winning the flag.

They “know” it do they? Lol

The people of BigFooty are in a better position to make this decision than the people within the walls of the club.

This is complete bulls**t. The majority of Swans fans are psychics who have forgotten that Longmire has already won a flag?

Sorry, I'll rephrase, imagine being upset at re-signing someone with Longmire's record because you took an imaginary straw poll and came up with the majority of Swans fans being clairvoyants.
He scored 30 points (in 2018 finals) and 39 points in the final in 2017. How is that not being completely out coached?

3 Grand finals in 7 years, only one coach going around has a better record. He clearly gets the best results from our list given the consistent top 4 performances. Glad to hear we're locking him away, just hoping this constant Horse hate can end

He could of taken the North offer i imagine he thought about it for a few weeks but instead wanted to stay at the club and hopefully reap the rewards in a few years with the group we have.
