    I have a soft spot for any Swans player who is moved on for better opportunities and as a result has helped build our list strength AA being your obvious examples recently. I don’t have a great deal of time for players such as Grant and Rocca from many years ago who decided that they would use the Swans as a starting point and never had any intention of staying.
    Of the current players the one that I have a lot of time for is Travis Boak from Port Adelaide I remember a few years back when Geelong made a concentrated and arrogant approach with the belief that the go home factor would prevail.
    They seriously underestimated his ethics and his personal values.
    I also appreciate the fact that he is committed to going home to his local club Torquay where is father was an absolute legend and playing after his AFL career is over.

    Toby Greene, just gives his all every game, and so much class. Really enjoy watching him play.
    Also like Marcus Bontempelli, Sam Walsh, Jack Lukosius and both King boys.
    Any former Swans player who has moved on for non-monetary gain reasons, so Hanners, Allir, even Nic Newman. Never been that partial toward Tom Mitchell, although his 2016 GF was outstanding.

    I like how you listed Bob Murphy twice! He was an easy to like player from another club. National Living Treasure type.

    Would you consider Jarrod Brander instead of Oscar Allen? He'd be a lot more gettable (since he's not getting a game and not about to), cost less and comes from NSW border zone (Mildura) whereas Allen is Perth born and raised. Brander, Aaron Francis and Harrison Petty are three players I've been wondering whether we might target by way of trade to fill our need for an extra KPP.

    One of the ill informed and least comprehensible Swans crowd behaviors was hearing Tiger Greg Stafford being booed every time he got the ball, while in the same match Darren Gaspar was left in peace.
    Gaspar's departure was much worse than either Grant or Rocca. He wasn't even homesick and we got nothing at all in exchange.

    You left out Bob Murphy.
    But yes, he was also great to watch in action. He can write a good article, too.
