If Mills makes the impact that lives up to the hype then Joey could be third. But that is still quite the feat for a veteran. He has still got at least two more years of enjoying being in our top 3 midfielders.
    He is not the force he once was i concur with that. Still a formidable opponent for mids to do battle with.
    I agree with TheBloods on Joey. I do not expect 2021 to be his last season.
    One thing I did notice during the GWS practice match was how often Joey was the first Swans midfielder to arrive at the contest. He has never had lightning speed but his endurance for someone weighing 97kg is extraordinary.
    The Tom Papley Backpack $39.99 from the RWO merchandise tab - if only!

    How do you see yourself then?

    I know that's a potentially provocative question but you just called someone whose job it is to assess and write about footy, a nobody. We on RWO are after all, just fans (with opinions yes but ultimately just fans).

    As are people on The Roar - I don't believe they are professional journos (or even people whose opinions are more valid than anyone else's). They're just fans who write for the Roar for fun.

    That’s mainly right. But they do have some contributors who are professional sports writers - Geoff Lemon for example.
