Horse about to be interviewed on SEN
“We made it clear to Tom and his management that we didn’t want to trade him and said he’s a valuable player for us and so that’s the starting point,” he told SEN Breakfast.
“As the process unfolded, we were working in good faith to see if something could happen and when it didn’t happen it was a matter of touching base again.

Not really anything more to be said about Daniher-Papley is there. It was pretty clear at the time what had taken place.

The only thing that caught my attention was his comment on McCartin: coaches aren't entirely sure whether he's best up back or forward. It's great to have that kind of player on the field who can play either end when required.

I take particular interest in this from Horse.

"“(I only had conversations with Daniher) late in the process. I didn’t need to sit down and get to know Joe, I got to know Joe before he made the decision to go to Essendon, when he had a chance to come to Sydney."

I read that as, well you had your chance back then Joe, so now you can't be upset that we couldn't get you here under extremely difficult circumstances.
Next year if he still wants.

More from Longmire's interview:
Look out world, Lance training "probably for the first time with the team before Christmas since he’s been at the club" and 2 weeks early. :)
Tom McCartin will train with forwards

The only thing that caught my attention....
"The 23-year-old had personal reasons for wishing to come to a club in Melbourne"

Poetic license from a Melbourne journo?

EFA - "The 23-year-old had personal reasons for wishing to nominate Carlton and restrict his ability to move back to Victoria"

Has to be bullshit or something more sinister? why the freakin F would Giants go to the AFL over something which is none of their business?
They didn't. He states that Tomlinson saw Harley with Daniher. Tomlinson told someone who told all the other players, one of whom told the media. Not AFL House.

And I’m sure that if Green and Any other GWS academy players of the future are free the Swans will be bidding on them.

Running to AFL house like a snot nosed little brat, nice one GWS
Who said they San to AFL House? Nobody said that. Tomlinson told a fellow player who told all the players, one of whom informed the media and that is how AFL found out

I think that was a very much on the surface comment, but was more to be downplaying that we didn't pursue Joe. That he approached us

The article did:

“...the meeting eventually reaching Giants officials who made their own enquiries at the highest levels of AFL headquarters.”

Fixed that for you

Personally I find it reprehensible that a Club would approach a long term contracted player and try to use $$$ to lure him away mid contract.
For players who's contract will expire that year, sure, but not 2+ years of contract remaining

At the start of that interview they said:

Spoken to 4-5 of the top 10 draftees who said from all of the coaches that had spoken to them Horse had the biggest impact on them / was most impressive...
King of the kids! Who would have guessed he was cut out to lead a young developing team after all these years with an established contender
