    He's miles ahead of Judd in disposal effectiveness. His lousy kicking should have cost Judd the Norm Smith in 2005. But then again the Swans couldn't have everything!
    Those who have the greatest power to hurt us are those we love.

    Agreed although the discussion was about their relative pace.

    In my head Judds impact in 2005 is limited to that kick he shanked out of bounds missing everything by a mile.

    Did they? Don't think he was top 10 in B&F was he? Jake Lloyd rated higher I believe.

    Maybe the voters had an inkling/knew he was on his way out and that (subconsciously) affected their votes?

    Heeney is a bit of the flavour of the month in Fantasy AFL circles, with the general expectation that he'll get much more midfield time this year and he'll continue on his upward trajectory as a player. So it's not just us Swans fans expecting big things from him in 2017.

    Looking at that list it's interesting to note the close correlation with the new captaincy/vice captaincy and even leadership group. Maybe this shows exactly why Kizza and Macca have moved on. If it isn't a coincidence, I hadn't realised that we expected our leaders and best players to correlate quite that closely. Is this new? Kirky, Maxy, they were never our out and out best players were they?

    This probably deserves its own thread but I'm going to see if I can get away with leaving it here.
