    Full credit to Paps for making a public statement to shut down all the speculation too.

    Why Tom Papley chose to stay at Sydney
    Great quotes.

    Excerpt:

    Papley, whose younger brother Will is vying to be picked up at this year’s NAB AFL Draft, will finish the season on 99 games for the Swans, where both his grandfathers – Max Papley and Jeff Bray – played in the 1960s.

    "I had it in my mind a little bit and had a little look. It will be great to get my name up there on the locker," he said.

    "There's a long way to go – I need to get through a pre-season and one more game to go this year – but I'd be looking forward to playing my 100th in round one next year and hopefully plenty more."

    A big wrap on Longmire. Which must be gratifying for him.

    And I wonder how Will Papley is rated? I kept an eye on his stats last season, when he was playing for Gippsland. He played a few good games early on, but then faded away: so I didn't really consider him at draft time. However, I didn't realise that he was underage. If he's anywhere near as good as Tom, it would be nice to have him at the club.

    We are very lucky to have Longmire as coach. Outstanding individual with great character.

    Irrespective of what people think of Horse's tactical abilities as a coach, there is no doubt he is a gentleman off the park, and highly regarded by many in the industry. Just another example in a long list of how highly regarded he is by many in our game.
    "You get the feeling that like Monty Python's Black Knight, the Swans would regard amputation as merely a flesh wound."

    My thoughts exactly.....and that Paps article just strengthens that view.

    Talk of him "going anywhere" was just that. Talk.
    He's contracted until the end of 2023.
    The blues can have him then.
    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.
    Blessed are the cracked for they are the ones who let in the light.

    Carlton's culture since the 70's has been to steal players from other clubs, cheque book recruiting and rort the salary cap to win flags. Since they have had to fall into line they have failed miserably. And true to form they still had a go at Papley. Why would anybody want to transfer to such a soulless club, apart from the filthy lucre.

    It would be hard to find a more precise and succinct definition of the Carlton Football Club. The word "soulless," in particular, defines the club.

    Why would Papley, who thrives on playing with passion, want to go to a club that stands for nothing?

    Paps just wants his name on the door.
