    Nice. Not too many draft prospects are Swans supporters. Maybe we give him a slightly higher value based on that.

    Why do you want to move out Jones, one of our best players, 90 games and just approaching the peak years of his career?

    Why would we trade out a speedy midfielder for a ruckman, when we need midfielders and have too many ruckmen, albeit not a Brody Grundy? What would we do with hypothetical ruckman? Who plays senior and who plays NEAFL? Choose: Naismith, Sinclair, Cameron, Knoll, new ruckman traded for Jones.
    Like.

    “They still want him": Sydney to be "major players" in the trade period

    SEN’s Time On host Sam McClure says Sydney will be "major players" during the upcoming trade period. McClure pondered whether their first-round pick will be used in a potential deal to lure Joe Daniher away from Essendon, maintaining Sydney’s interest in the All-Australian forward is real.

    “Sydney will be major players in the trade period, that you can take to the bank,” he told SEN’s Time On. “Their first pick, currently pick No.4, is up for grabs. Will they throw it at Essendon in an attempt to land Joe Daniher? “Don’t you worry, they still want him.”

    Sam's been quietly stoking the embers since it first flared up.

    It seems to be a very speculative analysis by McClure. I really doubt that their first pick Is on the table as suggested.

    Coming into an important trade/draft period, it is comforting to know that we are a relatively stable Club with an established long-term Coach (unlike some others), a well-respected administration and a promising list. Watching the debacle at Freo in recent days has really hit home this point to me.

    I'm sure the Swans will be inviting offers for their number 4 pick. We have a lot of youth and a lack of experience. I'd be more than happy to swap it for the right player(s).

    Would like to see Pick 4 used on Serong, definitely need to target top end that actually likes the place.
    Dont want to see Sydney get involved in this multiple 1st Rd pick BS
    Danniher next year when he is free and has proven he can play again or for a 2nd Rounder this year
    Need to keep Jones and Paps

    100% with you Waswan.
    I've read up on serong and he sounds ideal. I'd be surprised if we keep both Paps and Jones, resigned to losing one of them. He sounds ideal as a replacement for either.
    I really can't see where Daniher fits in our current team, unless he wants to become a specialist ruckman or KPD (doubt it) - certainly not worth pick 4. If he is off contract / free agent next year, we should just wait.

    On an unrelated matter, here is a link describing the Metres gained stat. Jake Lloyd tops the list, so is an interesting read: Metres gained Breaking down the AFL's most misunderstood statistic
    Thanks for the link, interesting reading
