    From video on Swans Instagram account, Kennedy and Buddy - and Naismith - have all gone with the players up to Qld for hub life. I didn’t spot Heeney but given Naismith has gone perhaps Isaac has as well.

    Perhaps the long-term injured players have gone so they can keep receiving rehabilitation treatment and oversight from the medical staff in the hub?

    I assume there is some concern they may not be home again for some weeks.

    Naismith has a funny video on his Insta account of his packed bags for the trip with his (very) small dog packed in his bag. And Jesinta has packed story books in Buddy’s bags so he can still take part in their usual bedtime story-reading routine with their baby daughter by Facetime.

    This is certainly a unique season!

    More info here about which Swans players have/haven’t gone to Qld. (Heeney & Hewett haven’t gone.)

    ‘The Swans ......... have told players to plan to be away for eight weeks.’


    ‘The Swans are taking a smaller group to than other clubs with families and partners not accompanying players to Queensland.’


    Franklin could be back for Sydney derby Champion spearhead Lance Franklin could return as early as August 13's Sydney derby,

    What I meant was playing regular games at Optus Stadium

    - - - Updated - - -

    I think I mucked up the post a little bit what I said was does anybody else think playing regular games at Perth Optus Stadium will benefit the Sydney players especially with that Stadium having the same dimensions as the MCG I think it'll be really good for them

    I just completed the Swans member survey emailed out about membership options for 2021. I can understand the dilemma of what membership options should be offered given the ongoing Covid uncertainty.

    My head was spinning by the end of the survey so I hope I was internally consistent in my responses. There wasn’t an opportunity to review answers at the end, after I understood more clearly the format & logic of what was being asked.

    By the end though I knew exactly what I wanted: the same membership and reserved seat as I have purchased for over 10 years.

    And for life to go back to the way it was pre-Covid.

    I got that too. It was complete jiberish. But it did come from the AFL (via the swans). Each club has such varied membership structure, it didnt fit anyone.

    Looked suspiciously like it was not generated by an experienced marketing and PR team, but more likely an ex-afl player/coach given a job by the old boys network.

    I wonder how many aged ex-AFL footballers have been lost to Covid so far
