    Ha ha ha the boys in Town Hall aren't that happy with Swans exploiting a legal loophole that Ken Wood ticked off and approved pre-draft.

    Jeez I hope Blakey gets a good run at it next year in Seniors. Nice to see a highlights reel without multiple turnovers for once.

    Least this time they won't be able put another trade ban on for following the AFL's own darn rules!!!

    No Cola and risk of salary cap breach to ransom Swans over this time. Would laugh if they tried as I don't think Swans would cop the whack quietly a second time around. Just goes to show how far ahead of the AFL Comission the Swans recruiting department and club overall are.

    Could not have known it at the time but it looks like the reason Gold Coast traded up (for West Coast's pick) was because of us, so they could get McLennan before us.

    They wouldn't know.
    They base everything on what has happened & not on what is happening.
    The Swans are preparing Champion Data's ranking figures for next year as we speak, with the work we are putting into our youngsters.
    Then they'll get their after the fact 'expert' on SEN & FOX Footy to tell everyone how we are rated number 2 or 3 again.

    This is absolute meaningless data designed for the punters out there.

    If we did not balls up our 2009 season then we would have smashed that record as it would have been 2004 to 2018

    Maybe though I think that 2009 season helped shape the 2012 flag

    That is true. We did very well out of that trade/draft period getting Kennedy, McGlynn, Mumford, Rohan and Jetta.

    Indeed. The data is based primarily on list age, experience, player ranking and just one grey area that is the most important of the lot, potential. In other words they are predicting if a you g group of players will take the next step. This prediction usually relies on draft position and first year form. Not a very good indicator really with sides like Carlton, who had so many first round draft picks, who managed to get it so wrong.

    It's all Fairy Floss

    Maybe not, but I was including everyone. Technically McGlynn did not play in the 2012 GF either.

    Moral of the story they all contributed to us being a very good team for five years, that’s no small feat.

    Unfortunately we haven't made the most of our finals appearances... Taking GF wins away and looking purely at finals appearances, we are the most dominant team for the past 20 years. It's just a shame when you do take into consideration the amount of chances we have missed out.

    I'd rate "that" Lions team as the best I've ever seen & they don't even make that list (surprisingly).

    The way I see that ladder is with the only team ahead of us being West Coast as all other streaks were part of the VFL era with less clubs.
    What is impressive about our streak is that it has mostly been with the extra two teams in the competition & with extra travel.

    actually there is another way of looking at it which suggests that the performance is less good.

    VFL was final 5 from 12 teams and also 4 from 12. The afl has been 8 from 16. in percentage terms you are an even chance in the modern era. It was significantly harder to make it in the past.

    Ha this is one of my favourite bugbears, treating AFL and VFL as equivalents. National professional 18-team comp vs amateur suburban comp. They really should be treated separately in all stats including premierships.

    True.
    11 Vic teams that traveled once or twice a year against two teams, WC & Swans that traveled 11 times per year, throws a different light on it again.
