May need swansfan51 GotTheGoodes scaryness to keep this post updated throughout the year. The news thread moves very quickly.

Not sure if this is just me but this post is always flagged as "new".
I had a similar problem when the player profiles were added to each player's thread.
Thanks

As in your always have 'unread' posts in threads where posts are stickied? I'm not sure that's supposed to happen, maybe have a ask in the suggestions and feedbacks subforum at the bottom of the forum list about it.

I never read tis type of poo unless it's someone i respect. Great player , but the sports media has to make up content everyday.
it was poo (nice adjective) Grand Uncle summed it up perfectly - 'not the sharpest tool'
but I reckon the Swans are (realistically) a 50/50 chance of playing finals this year. I even put my first bet (on any sports) on .. 5:1 - good odds

Hard to disagree with that. Dawson's kicking is sublime
This is why I want Dawson across half back along with a young Campbell. They are my preferred distributors rather than Lloyd. Lloyd is a solid senior player however I think it's time to have a more explosive exit option from defence. Lloyd remains in the backline for his leadership and lockdown ability. And for those that say play them on the wing or half-forward, it's easier to give them the ball across the backline.

An interesting article around marriage break ups of coaches where the author claims that the Victorian teams had it harder for longer than all the "interstate teams". Correct me if I'm wrong but GWS and ourselves were away for the same amount of time as the Victorian teams.

We were in Sydney for pretty much the first half of the season.

This is still a fair bit longer than the Vic Crew.

Melb families wouldn't be used to the travel so much. Swans are away every second week, Melbourne based clubs only have to worry about it 5 times a year? I travel more than that for my job!

I think that's what's thrown me, is that we had the Melbourne home game turned into an eagles game in QLD plus the travel to Melbourne and Adelaide in the first few rounds.

And for those that say play them on the wing or half-forward, it's easier to give them the ball across the backline.
A couple of things I find difficult to agree with. Start at the back.
Lloyd is not and never will be a lockdown defender. He also doesn't lead in the backline. Rampe does that and when he was injured Mills and Fox stood in. He performs roles the coaches want and does them well hence winning the Skilton twice.
Not saying he shouldn't do something else, just not what you recommend.
Campbell will probable debut this year but I will be very surprised if it's in the backline. His junior footy was midfield and high half forward. HHF is my guess for his debut but who knows?
Dawson is probably our most effective versatile player at HBF, Wing, HFF or even midfield (where he dominated in the NEAFL). So I sure can't say you're wrong to want him at HBF. I don't believe he's training in that group. I personally like basing him on the wing so he can go back and make an extra defender, go forward and make an extra attacker or deliver bullets to the 50m mark. Check out his kick to McInerney which features in both their highlights.
