With the second of the three delisted free agent windows soon drawing to a close, news of former Cat Daniel Menzel's extraordinary round trip from America to Sydney to complete a medical with the Swans was met with delight.
But as the time passes and the impending end of the window closing, fans are beginning to ask themselves, now what.
He's not the first delisted player that Swans have performed a medical on this year without signing, and he may well not be the last, having previously tested out Taylor Duryea, Cam Sutcliffe and Jacob Townsend.
It's been four days passing since his medical with the Swans and yet, there's been no progress on the story, no leaked details, nothing. While it would be a delight to take the no news is good news stance, the Swans are typically silent when it comes to negotiations, hardly a trait they've just started applying.
They've been cagey in the past, especially in dealing with Kurt Tippett and Lance Franklin. While Daniel Menzel doesn't fit the bill for genuine superstar of the league, there's enough demand for his services from the Swans faithful, that there's a growing frustration in the fan base.
We're regularly asked if there's any news on Daniel Menzel. We'd love to break it open and give an answer either way, but there's still time and we'll just have to wait and see.
Despite the obvious excitement last Friday when he completed his remarkable return journey, senior coach John Longmire, head physiotherapist Matt Cameron and new CEO Tom Harley were in England, making discussions difficult.
In the hear and now, with information readily available and the fingertips and saturation of media coverage and penetration into individual's daily lives more so than ever before, we all just want an answer.
That answer may come, but we may have to wait until 5pm on Friday afternoon for it.
