Fans' verdict: Kennedy still king at Swans

Swans bookends should go on the trade table What went right and what went wrong at the Sydney Swans in The Wash-Up

HE MAY have missed out on selection in the Virgin Australia AFL All Australian team, but Josh Kennedy remains king with Sydney fans.

Giving their season verdict on the Swans in an survey, 51 per cent of fans named the first-year Sydney captain their player of the season.

A storming finish followed the Swans' nightmare 0-6 start before they finally ran out of steam in a semi-final thumping by Geelong.

Sydney fans rated their side's season just 6.7 out of 10, citing the disastrous start and twin losses against Hawthorn as two of the contributing factors to an ultimatelt disappointing year.

Here are the full survey results, plus a selection of the 2017 moments Sydney fans would like to remember or forget.


What was the moment you'll remember?

Coming from the clouds to beat Essendon after the siren in round 14. Being at the SCG was the cherry on top.
- Caitlin McDowell, Sydney NSW

The final few minutes of the Adelaide game. What an effort by the mighty Bloods!
- Steve Lyttle, Perth WA

Buddy's goal against Adelaide, running down the wing with three bounces.
- Harry Carter, Adelaide SA

Making finals after an unexpected 0-6 start. That's guts!
- Mitch Stokes, Toukley NSW

What was the moment you'd rather forget?

Losing to Carlton in round six to be 0-6.
- Mark Kenney, Brisbane Qld

Smashed by Geelong. Outcoached and outplayed by a team we match up well against.
- Sam Straughan, Central Coast NSW

Not watching the end of the Essendon match.
- Josh Mortensen, Auchenflower Qld

Our two close losses to Hawthorn. Cost us a top-four spot and that ultimately finished our season.
- Daniel Saunders, Sydney NSW
