Veterans wait on career decisions

SYDNEY Swans veterans Adam Goodes and Nick Malceski say they will decide if and where they will play next season within a couple of weeks.

Both players said the 63-point loss to the Hawks in Saturday's grand final would not influence their decision.

"Whether it was a win or a loss, I'm still going to take the time to think what I'm going to do next year," Goodes (pictured) said.

"What happens with the group next year, whether I'm there or not, we can't accept that (loss).

"Unfortunately we didn't have too many guys who were rowing the boat."

The dual Brownlow medallist, who played his 351st game in the grand final, turns 35 in January. Victory would have seen him become the first Swans player to win three AFL premierships.

The 30-year-old Malceski is now an unrestricted free agent and said he would discuss his future with his family.

"I'll sit down with my family and hopefully work something out after that … the next couple of weeks," the star defender said.

"I haven't had time to think about yesterday's game, to be honest with you. We didn't perform how we wanted to and we're just disappointed with how we played."

Malceski, who came back from three knee reconstructions to earn his first All-Australian selection this season, has been linked to former Swans coach Paul Roos at Melbourne, but hasn't ruled out staying on in Sydney.
