    Jenny McAsey - Media Dept at Swans

    InBloodySpired decision.

    One of my favourite journalists. And I sent off in my survey that I thought the Swans needed someone in media who loved the club and sent POSITIVE messages out to the public, not the "Sydney only loves winners" crap. I am tickled pink (red?).

    Any relation to the might Swans defender from the 80's - Darren McAsey?

    The flip side is that we lose the one journalist who was capable of writing informed articles on the Swans.

    Excellent appointment, she's a lovely, intelligent person. Her eldest son also plays with Roos boy, coached by Roosey...he's about 14 and he's very good !

She always took a fair minded look at whatever she was writing about, understands the use of good English and looked at the Swans with a positive eye. Which is in direct contrast with her disparaging associates south of the border. I have always looked out for her articles with pleasurable anticipation.

    I knew the Sydney AFL scene was small but I didn't know it was that small. With her connections it'd be a soda to be the Australian's AFL reporter in Sydney. Joining the Swans now saves her from having to make friends with Western Sydney.

    From what I gather from the announcement, hers is a new position in the club.

    PS: I hope in her new position she makes we get better-written press releases than this:

    ?It is disappointing for Tim but we are supportive of his decision," CEO Andrew Ireland said.
    We know what he means but it does like sound like the club is pleased to see the back of the poor kid.

    I think would have sounded better

    Primmy is essentially right. McAsey clearly had very good sources at the club and a very good working relationship. She wrote about many of the 'backroom' issues that are far too obscure to tackle for the Sydney dailies - such as rehab, player development, coaching moves, recruiting etc.

    For example, this article on Dave Missen from September (appropriate given ORB's thread) - The X-factor keeping Saints on paddock | The Australian gave a great insight into the club's training and fitness regime.

    All we get from the Tele and SMH are the bog-standard, tough in cheek quotes from Paul Roos or whichever player is rolled out by the media department the day before, and stories written by Melbourne-based hacks such as Richard Hinds about the Swans gameplan or very occassionally something he picks up browsing this site.
