* Interesting reading. Given how many early picks the Swans had in the earlier years of the draft our record isn't great.
* Swans are great at recognising talent after they've been picked.
* Well played Cats (even without f/s)
* Don't agree with Tom Mitchell at the later pick, he would have gone much earlier.
* Likewise one G. Ablett. Stole pick 40 from two champion Swans players.
* I'm probably in the minority, but still think I'd take Nick Reiwoldt before Hodge.

I don't like having shenanigans in there (Ablett, Mitchell etc) but otherwise a very interesting read

Really good listen. Modest and honest. And his Mum loves the Swans.
Seems to have a very good head on his shoulders for a young bloke. Hope I get the chance to see him play down at Henson Park in the preseason.

The Herald -Sun is currently having Champion Data ratings , yesterday was lists ,today mids. It's all toilet paper , like the journo who puts his name to it Chris Cavanagh. Don't waste your time.
Every year the Championship Data lists get someone woefully wrong. Not just individuals but teams as well. It's great at going "this person/team has played well" yeah we all know that! It's just aweful at telling us who will play well
