It's still Swans related media.

If you hate it that much I suggest taking a few days off, there won't be much else to discuss.
Don't mind when it's being done and the couple of days after ,i just don't need to read what some junior journo thinks what will happen .Take a few days off where ? I don't go on the draft thread for those reasons , only look to see what the posting stats are , which in a couple of cases are remarkable

I don’t know how to link but the Kin Beatson interview is available as part of “The Road to the Draft” podcast. His interview is at about the 50 minute mark.

Sheather might have Ronke and possibly Taylor ahead of him.
Gould has two of Fox, O'Riordan and possibly O'Connor.
Depends a lot on circumstances I think. Single games will probably bring in the more experienced players, while a block absence might present a chance for the debutant.
After watching an admittedly small sample size of a couple of VFL games last year, I would have Sheather about even with Ronke at the moment and about to overtake him. Ronke has the advantage of being in the system longer, but Sheather at least gets the ball. IF he keeps on the same trajectory, I wouldn't be surprised to hear Sheather's name in the conversation for a debut at some time this next season.

I reckon he will debut the coming season if he continues his current trajectory. He's busy enough, hard enough and can kick a goal.

With Heeney moving more to the midfield.. there may be a spot open up. Havnt seen enough to comment too much, but, hes fast, aggressive, athletic and could offer alot of forward defensive pressure.. and yep, kick the odd goal.
Kinnear expected him to be drafted last year and I suspect the Swans and Kinnear were very happy to be able to get him via the rookie draft (didn't have the points to match a bid in the open draft)

Been really enjoying watching the development of the younger crew over the last few years. Am looking forward to watching Sheather this year.. and, Gould, Stephens, Amartey, McDonald, Campbell etc etc etc

I wanted him, currently averages about 15 games a year. Not sure where I sit now after knowing that.
He might be a slight risk Ticky, but 15 games is better than the 8 games our current next-best key defender option in Melican is averaging over the last two years. Anyway probably a conversation better suited for about 300 days from now.

Moore and Moore he sounds like what Carlton traded in at huge cost down back. Pun intended.

On another thread it was discussed that the Perth/WA players were staying in Perth for Xmas and training together because of concerns about them travelling into WA.
Pyke was a Eagle so he also wants to be with his family for Xmas. Oversees the training. Welcomes the drafted players to the club, speaks to their families.
All makes perfect sense.
