What do ppl think reckon we will get another crack at it in Franklin final years? i want him to win a flag as a Swan.
I think we'll attempt to set ourselves up for a crack at it in the next few years during this upcoming trade period. Whether or not Buddy plays out his contract is another matter and will be something that will be taken into account as the club plans.

I think we are definitely looking good for a crack in a couple of years. Look at the team we put out last week and think how many won't be on the list in three years time. I'd say Kennedy and Rampe would be the ones you wouldn't expect to still see, but basically everyone else will still be 30 or under, if not still under 25, in three years time. Guys like Aliir, Heeney, Mills, Hewett, Dawson, Papley etc. are all still sub-100 game players and are establishing themselves as long term leaders.

We have quality young players establishing themselves in every position, bar ruck. Address that, and put 50 more games experience in to the players and you have a team that is in prime position to create another sustained period of success.
