Papley would have been a Blue if Daniher ended up a Swan, bit harsh blaming SOS for not getting deal done. He was told very early on that Deal would on get done if they could get Daniher

Will be interesting tracking his year next year. How he will go with the homesickness after being close to getting home

Yeah I agree. Can't see Papley as the type to drop his bundle. Watching him on the field, he is a very competitive and combative player
Plus unlike the other club we dealt with, Carlton were very reasonable both with what they offered and how they conducted themselves. If it comes to it both clubs won’t have an issue dealing with each other next season

Yeah for sure. See what happens at the end of the year. I hope Papley has a good year. Sydney rightfully held him to his contract as they were unsatisfied with the offer. Hopefully if it comes to a trade next year there is no third party involvement

We just all hope we never have to deal with Essendon again. No issue if Paps still wants to go after this year we should act with good faith and we will.

He'll get on with it, he's an ultimate professional. We will re-visit it at the end of the year if need be.
I'm expecting round 2 of the Daniher/Papley saga in 12 months time but with a different result, ala Kelly. Sydney already appear to be planning on life after Papley with the signings of Taylor and Gray. Daniher a RFA. A lot depends on how he settles and plays after all that has gone down.

Both are completely different to Papley. Gray will be in the middle where his best games for Port have been. Taylor is the outside/FWD. Neither are Papley replacements and in fact all 3 probably ply rd1.

Luckily the two clubs in Carlton and Sydney were understanding in this trade period.

Daniher as a free agent would be ideal
