    Salute sir, and tweeted to all and sundry. Think I just may go back and tweet it directly to the AFL site.

    Yep. Done.

    Well written, and I just added my little bit in support

    Brilliantly written joemoore12.

    I will say this though. When Eddie, Peter Gordon and the other muppets get their way with the end of COLA and a watered down Swans Academy, I will back us in to remain successful. The extra 10% plus a couple of decent players coming out of the Academy has not made this club successful and respected throughout the AFL by other clubs.

    To be successful in the AFL the following needs to be complementing each other at the head of the pack (in no order):

    - culture
    - recruiting
    - playing list
    - administration
    - coaches
    - facilities
    - finances

    If one or more of the above pillars falls away or breaks down completely, the remaining pillars tumble and the Swans head south on the ladder.

    I firmly believe the Swans have these structures in place, regularly review & analyze them and know what they're doing and where they're heading more than we would ever know!

    Hence why I'm backing us in - COLA or no COLA.

    BRING. IT. ON.

    there is and always will be a want/need to return home which still favours the victorian teams on via pure numbers - especially when a players wife is from interstate and wants to be close to family when having the first child etc

    The counter though is when guys meet a girl up in Sydney and her family is from sydney it makes it easier to stay in sydney

    Or the 1 in a million ie buddy wanting to come to sydney to be with his partner and out of the bubble of Melb AFL

    But it will be interesting to see how it goes in say 5 years from now when the LOFA has less of an advantage ie LOFA watered down in a few years then we have the next recruits come through from a draft or two who will be suddenly at age of do they want to stay or go home

    The academy will get a lift out of the recruitment of Heeney, Mills and Davis. This will spur the younger academy players to loftier heights and will lead to more being drafted. In five years time ours and the Giants NSW proportion of players will be higher which mitigates the go home factor.
