We would have to get a first round pick for Jones. We could use that pick to help us get Mills and Dunkley.
    The unfortunate thing is that we will get nothing for Jones in a trade situation. The Demons, judging by their poor performance against the depleted Dons, may finish last. This will lead to Jones falling into his bothers arms for no compensation to the Swans.

    Clubs such as GWS and Brisbane will improve this year so there is every chance that the bottom three clubs will be The Demons, The Saints or possibly even the Magpies.

    This will give Jones a free ride home.

    It's happened to the Swans with Lamb and Membrey.

    If Jones is not going to commit to Swans I say make him train by himself and pick Academy players to take his spot in the reserves.

    This may be hardcore, but we cannot continue to be taken for a ride by these young players.

    What's with all this conjecture about Zac? Can someone spell it out please?

    Otherwise I'd think we're all being a bit hasty in writing off a very bright prospect who's entering his second year on our list....

    If has been with the rehab group - would be logical to conclude an injury (don't seeing him pulling a heart muscle - no heart for the Swans).

    Didn't he have an Achillies injury last year? - These things are hard to get over, maybe he has aggravated it.. who knows.

    But to jump on the trade bandwagon seems a little premature.

    Give the kid a break FFS..

    This thread is RWO at its best. Completely unsubstantiated rubbish.

    Just say that Jones is injured then! Like McVeigh and McGlynn. If no information is given on Jones then people will start to try and connect dots.

    Those people that are always looking for overly complex views on things will look to join the dots.....

    I would hardly think, even if he had made it clear that he wanted to go back to Melbourne at the end of the year, that we would put him out 'in the cold' in some sort of spiteful reaction to his decision. Would seem a rather silly thing to do - given you never know what injuries may hit the team through the year or whatever else may happen.

    i would put a $100 down that Shaw and Goodes will retire this season

    Therefore i think Zac has a spot for Shaw and Rohan / Towers has a more regular spot for Goodes

    Zac Jones has not been listed as injured on the AFL's latest injury list.

    This is very perculier!

    Even peculiar. Neither has AJ. Only those in contention for round 1 seem to get a mention.
    Those who have the greatest power to hurt us are those we love.

    Like most mysteries, the reality never matches up.

    From what I heard, he had a minor ankle injury prior to the NAB games.

    My sources tell me Zak Jones spontaneously combusted at training just before the NAB Challenge series.
