A lover of most sports, but especially those with a ball and a team that wears red and white

A great analysis, thanks. It’s hard to find this sort of depth anywhere else.
Why can’t the Swans improve enough to make the 8 in 2020? After the wins over West Coast, Hawthorn & the Suns up to Round 15 the finals were a chance this year, but then the lack of a full-forward and ruckman hit hard. In the next 5 games there were losses by 10, 7, 1 and 2 points (with a 27 point loss at Geelong), so they weren’t way off at all. Assuming (and hoping) that Franklin & Naismith are playing next year, that the young players are improving after another pre-season, why can’t the finals be possible?
A trade for a top midfielder (how Mitchell is missed!) or a key defender would be nice too!

Buddy brilliant: After one 'bad' year, Sydney's rebuild is already complete

Nice call!

How about a boutique 50k stadium along a light rail link to the city??!!

Sport is business these days, I get that. So money & contracts determine these things… Doesn’t make it fair though. Neither does the AFL draw or playing games during Origin when teams are missing their best players. Just the way it is hey?

Thanks Anon, I wasn’t aware of the Leigh Matthews comments.
Playing 2 GFs could work – guaranteed to make money, so you’d think the AFL & NRL would find it irresistible

Good call hairy. Sometimes it all seems destined!
