    Not sure. That's all I found out. Sorry.

    It makes sense that the club has its input by deciding how many captains/vice-captains etc and how many in the leadership group. I can't imagine that is entirely the players' doing.

    The wording of this Swans announcement of the change this year - Kennedy stepping down, Mills coming in - strongly suggests the captains are appointed by the club rather than elected by players.

    Mills joins Parker and Rampe as Sydney co-captains

    My understanding is this is definitely correct.

    I noticed in JPK's speech when he stood down that he never mentioned Cal as the person who was stepping up, like it was not his place to announce it.

    As a keen follower of Cricket, it appears in Cricket that the players appoint the Coach and Coaching staff.

    Are the Swans leadership group consulted on any changes to the coaching staff or is the coaching staff the total domain of Longmire and Gardener?

    No, in cricket it appears the players get rid of coaches......rather than appoint them.

    In footy, I would think that rightly, the players have no input into the coaching positions/selections.

    You forgotten the "Choose Roos" movement of 2002?

    Except for that time the Swans players appointed Roosey

    Luke Parker's inspiring performance yesterday reinforces my opinion of him being our stand alone captain.

    He produced that performance while being part of the current three-headed arrangement. Why does that performance suggest the club needs to change anything?

    Sorry, my intention wasn't to suggest the club should change captaincy model now after just one round, but rather highlighting the view I had pre-season on single captaincy (before the captaincy changes was announced), which Luke's performance yesterday reinforced why I was thinking that.

    Happy with the co-captaincy model which has served us well as I'd mentioned. Luke may well be most comfortable not being stand alone captain but he is imo the most inspirational of the co-captains. This is based on games I've seen him play in recent seasons and not just yesterday.
