"He said seeing so many new faces on the track was exciting, but at the same time, he has struggled coming to terms with the absence of good mate and three-time All Australian Dan Hannebery, who was traded to St Kilda over summer.
"It's pretty different and a little bit upsetting to be honest," he said.

"I was very close with Dan, but at the end of the day I guess that’s footy and that’s the industry we're in. "You've got to move on and that’s the harsh reality.

The view towards contracts and the rookie list could have changed somewhat.

Previously if you were on the rookie list you had to be promoted to play a senior game.

Now for Cat A rookies that has changed.

If you were to sign a “rookie contract” before you were consigning yourself to needing outside influence to play senior football. Now you can just play if selected.

Therefore Ronke could well have signed a 2 year contract with whatever wage conditions, provided they meet the AFL minimum. To Ronke it is somewhat immaterial which list he is on because he can play anyway. For the Swans, there are salary cap benefits of having a player who will otherwise play senior football listed on the rookie list.

For the 4th year he won’t be able to be listed on the rookie list anymore due to rules preventing that, so a senior spot will need to be freed up for him, however given the playing ability of a rookie has changed, it may well now be possible to have a contract that allows a player to transition between the rookie and senior list at the appropriate time as from Ronkes position, there isn’t much difference.
It just occurred to me that front ending a rookie contract thereby using the discount for TPP and allowing a lower wage in the year he must be upgraded would be good swans shenanigans......

Mills is still a quality player even if he hasn't hit top gear since coming back from the year off. I think he'll be a big part of our next premiership and potentially a co-captain. Heeney has more x-factor superstar potential but Mills could become one of the backbones of the team. I think those are the reasons they locked him in for so long.

Mills was drafted a year after Heeney. Both signed 3rd year extensions to their original rookie contracts and then both signed a 5 year contracts after those contracts ran out. It therefore makes sense.
I understand that but my point is Mills should have never been offered 5 years and I hope he never gets another 5 year offer from us again.

Why? I think Mills has been exceptional for us and continues to be. He, hopefully like Heeney, will pave the way for ever increasing local talent to aspire to make the grade and come through the ranks. His long term presence at the club is critical.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing. He was extended prior to the start of the 2017 season following his first season when he won the rising star award. The view at that point would have been that it would have been stupid not to offer him a longer term deal.

Forgive the intrusion but have any of you heard whispers that Buddy is considering hanging up the boots at the end of the season..?
