Geez. There'd be a few of those that were originally Souf Smelbourne not Sydaknee n there was more Danihers at Essendrugs than Sydaknee. Sydaknee had both Horse and Wankery but gave them up to #lolnorf for a song n Crawf was from around Denni n boarded at Kilmore so possibly was missed by Sydaknee.Think you will find Sydney got a number of good players from the Riverina Kelly, Carroll, Quade, Barry the Daniher's at some stage and probably a few more. The academies and priority picks except father/ son did not exist until relatively recent times so arguably they missed out on the longmuires Carey. Crawford etc
Not just talking about those players from way back who relocated when Souf got pushed up their for survival. But how much work did Sydaknee actually put into the development n expansion of their influence into both the Riverina / ACT. Areas that actually had a decent AFL history n following in the twenty years or so before GeeWhizz were manufactured?
