    According to this article, Roos is retiring for family reasons.

    Roos has two sons who would be eligible to play with the Swans as F/S picks in a few years. Maybe there's a bit more to this succession plan.

    Longmire should be a pretty good coach by then. Yes, congratulations from all at Hot Potato too John.
    Once Roosy has done a couple of HSC's it will be interesting to see what he does then..... there would be some juicy offers around I would imagine.

    Barring injury...(and finals) he should hand over having coached 200 games for the swans.

    Certainly a changing of the guard in the next 12 months.

    Well done Swans. It is great to see the club make an investment in people and back that.
    Gees I am going to need a awful lot of tissues to stem the tears over the next year and a bit!

    They will be eligible to play for Brisbane, not Sydney.

    There isn't exactly the same hype around this succession plan as Buckley's arrival at Collingwood!
    The only big difference is that Longmire has served a lengthy apprenticeship, Buckley has not. But I guess only time will tell if it is the right decision or not.

    It is my understanding that with a combined playing and coaching stint at Sydney the boys would have a choice as to which club they played for under the father and son rules as they currently stand.

    Was there a rule change to include games coached?
    I knew him as a gentle young man, I cannot say for sure the reasons for his decline
    We watched him fade before our very eyes, and years before his time

    Longmire coach has merit - At least we have a solution till the end of 2013.

    Kirky as assistant coach has more merit in 2011 IMO - we will need his presence after Roosy goes.

    Long goodbyes never seems to work. Who are the players meant to look to for direction over the next 14 months...?

    The selection process at the draft table will also be interesting - who picks .... I guess that is really not up to me and we have to trust the Swans management... Ohhh thats right, there quiting too...

    Or is this a way of telling us that we will heading in the right direction in 2011 with a solid team... Hope so!

    PS Big thanks to Paul Roos. A time to lead and time to follow and you need to know when it is the time to get out of the way..!~ THANX

    People????!!!!! It was people power who appointed Roos was it not? It was Roos who delivered a premiership in 2005 (and 2 points off in 2006) was it not? Longmire was appointed "Director of Coaching" a few years back was he not? We have had a succession plan in place for a few years now if I am not mistaken. Who was the favorite for the Kangas job and was due to have his interview on the same day he was announced as the Swans coach in 2011? That is right - our new coach!
    Thnk you for all you have done for OUR football club Mr Roos............. HERE IT IS!

    As I understand it when the changed it from 50 to 100 games they also changes the rule to include coaching and administrators of the club as well but with different games criteria.

    Not sure if the AFL keeps the full set of rules on-line but it must be buried somewhere on their website.
