    I can't believe we didn't have him on the list... :( I have always thought he had a chance to make it.

    Yes, I'm looking back and thinking I was a little enthusiastic!! Lol :rolleyes:

    At least people are having a go before the fact.
    This thread will be alive & well when the "I told you so hindsight police" get their hands on it in a year or so.

    Watch your back Kirkswan!:)

    I like that Melican wasn't even mentioned at the start of the thread yet has every chance to play more games than anyone else. Surely plays round 1 next year and should have played against Geelong (injury permitting).

    But I'm one of the Aliir fans so I hope Aliir finds form during pre-season and gets to make a position his own.

    Me too, I don't think he will stay though unfortunately. Hopefully he does.

    I'm not worried about my back lol, it already has plenty of knives hanging out...

    Me and my bleeding heart are always happy to have a go and be positive, being proved wrong at a later date doesn't reduce the enjoyment of hope along the way... :D

    I'm confused. Why would the first five be any more likely to reach the 200 game milestone than Florent or Jones or Melican? Especially the latter two given they're already locks in the best 22 at such young ages

    Just look at that bloody list!! We have some great kids don't we?!

    Happy to back them in. F**k chasing other clubs leftovers like Motlop or Watts... Focus on retaining (long term) the Melicans, Florents & Haywards & I'm one hellahappy Gottha.

    Not many players play 200 games. Only 29 players have played 200 games for Sydney/South in our entire existence (with Smith, Hannebery and Kennedy all on their way around 190~ games)

    In hindsight, going with 5 is already fairly generous. Plus Jones probably misses 50 games through suspension :p

    Yep agree and it appears to me that this is exactly the clubs plan and I for one am pretty happy with that plan, particularly if we remain as competitive as we have been for the past few years.

    Barring serious injury, Heeney and Mills will both play 300.

    One thing worth mentioning is how much that has changed in recent years. It used to be very rare for a player to reach 300, now it feels like every second week a player makes that milestones. The Swans had no 300 gamers them all of a sudden 3!

    End of year look and things are looking good for Hayward, Florent, Newman, Dawson, Naismith and Aliir.

    Rose will be lucky if he survives on an AFL list past next year

    Him and Hiscox were picks 37 & 38 :$

    Both were considered massive reaches at the time too.

    Could have had Neal-Bullen, Caleb Daniel, Oscar McDonald, Mitch McGovern, or Ed Langdon in hindsight.

    Only Daniel & McGovern have come on, the rest are still too early to tell

    I rate Neal-Bullen. Not too dissimilar to Hewett.
