Definitely adds some flair to the midfield but he does still have the tendency to butcher it and have the occasional brain fade.. clearly a talented player but hard to tell what he'll become..

He is not worth a grade money agree but he is the age bracket we need and can play multiple positions , HB with some run

Highly doubt were low balling him. We have plebty of cap space for a change. Reckon wrre offering him a fair deal maybe around $500k and he's probably looking for $600-700k which is far too high imo.

No way IMO it’s 500k if we were offering Mitchell low 4s

Like Lloyd last I reckon it’s peanuts

Wonder if Zac was more pushed out or looking to leave... He and Paps both seemed like heart & soul type players. Wear their passion on thier sleeves. Bang the badge after a goal, go into bat for teammates, seem to have pride for the club & invest themselves into the club culture... So it would be concerning if those types of players were leaving more of their own accord & less due to chasing opportunity/$/lifestyle elsewhere.

Harley is on record stating that Jones had a contract offer on the table for a long time. Also said it was difficult and they were lucky to sign him 2 years ago and the pull of home was there at that time.

Papley’s heart and soul, as far as I’m concerned is tucked into a cardholder in his wallet!

heard we were way off with the $

i like jones, leaves a gap in the side imo, i know he shits some off

ive sort of accepted an uncontracted player will fetch unders,
Won't fetch unders at all IMO. Only finished top 10 in the B&F once in his 6 seasons, in the bottom half of our best 22. His initial draft position is no more relevant than Papley's, I think we'll get a fair trade

Wishing Zak all the best. Had hoped he would have stayed.

The Sydney Swans have secured draft picks 32, 76 and Fremantle’s 2020 Round 3 pick in exchange for defender Zak Jones, pick 56 and next year’s Round 4 pick following a trade with St Kilda in the final minutes of the AFL Trade Period.

Jones was the most likely in our side to try to take some dare forward. Also most likely to get a htb and give away a 50m. All the best to him. How many Craig Birds?
