Rounds 7 and 8 fixtures out.
We play both on Saturday night 7.25pm, broadcast on 7. v Geelong SCG then Melbourne at the MCG.
Shows that our attractive brand of footy is being given prime time.
TBH I think we've got priority for FTA over BL v PA and Ade v PA solely because our opponents are Victorian and that's the only way they get on FTA, whereas the other teams are on locally regardless.

Unless either Rampe or Parker give it up, can't see us going back to 1 captain for at least 2-3 more years. Can see Mills stepping up when JPK retires, could be just Parker and Mills for a while. Heeney worth a shout in a few years as a VC or co-captain. If solo captain at some point, when the current 3 are gone, has to be Mills.

Mills was super impressive in his presser this week. Trotted out all the cliches but seemed genuine and full of thought.
I hope we get back to one captain... and a couple of VCs

As a night game at the MCG, can someone please give Errol's Pa a lift home to Bendigo after the game.

Good to have so any options. Quality list at the Swans.

Happy for Ollie but those stats are garbage. Anything that lists Travis Colyer as an effective player in any category should be thrown out.
I don’t see how you can say they are garbage. You can say they don’t mean much as of round 3, evidenced by Colyers inclusion from 9 kicks inside 50 (which is still an opinion and not fact as it’s entirely based entirely on your perception of Colyers inclusion and your perception of that him), however it’s a % of kicks inside 50s that have been marked. It’s absolutely factual.

What I looked for was Florents inclusion and some supporting evidence of his improved kicking. But it’s early in the year so hopefully he can keep it up.

Florent doesn't need evidence of his improved kicking, it's obvious to anyone watching. I feel like good players don't need stats to be validated but stats end up validating poor players.

But I realise I'm being a grouch and shouldn't have dismissed what was a valid contribution with your original post. So my bad there mate.

A great insight into the challenges Horse gives the young fellas

I know that's something we used do in the past with the first year draftees, so that they knew the history of the club, former leading players and the culture of the club.
The recruits would then give a presentation to the coaching/playing group on their chosen topic.

Looks like it may have gone into abeyance, but good to see it up and about again.

Gives the youngsters some actual skills (research, writing, speaking to a group), but just as importantly gives them an insight into the club and perhaps makes them just a little bit more invested in the Swans.

I reckon Papley, Mills co-captains is a good shout
Watching tonight we three agreed that Gulden has captaincy written all over him. He was organising people, including Bud, and they were listening. He is one intense fella but seems very well liked. Reckon JPK will drop off next year leaving Rampe and Parker. Then 2023 Mills and Parker. 2024 Mills and Gulden.
Love Paps but not skippering.
