i wouldn't laugh dan, but he seems surplus to our requirements.. i reckon we have other priorities anyway. but if he's going cheap, why not?

I think you answered your own question in the first half of your sentence. Even if a player is "going cheap" they still take a spot on the list and consume some salary cap.

Nice work. I'm not going to prepare a full team, but I know that my half-back line is going to be Christian Battle Lyon.

who would you rather have on the list la dee? darcy moore or jkh? or, let's just say, a mature-aged recruit from brissie or something? surely, if moore only cost a late rounder or something, we'd bite.

You said that you would put a player who is surplus to requirements on the list if they came cheaply. I just think that statement is internally contradictory. If they're surplus to requirements you are wasting the limited number of slots allowable on a list for a player who, by your own definition, shouldn't be on the list. I'd rather take an unknown in the draft and see if they develop into someone who is useful.

Wow. By eliminating use of the upper case and now whole words, you've really minimised the amount of effort you need to produce your posts.

Get a few of those from Trevor Marmalade's All-Star team from the early 90's, Colin?

Well spotted.

The HF line was too good to leave out.

I would have thought Carey Lade Kelly might give you a bit more bang for your buck.

For the coming draft, Melbourne has -

* no picks in the first round;

* one second round pick;

* two third round picks; and

* no picks in the fourth round.

We need to trade to get into the first round.

I think that’s going to happen.

Well,  we are going to be busy in the off-season,  aren't we?

Not sure anyone was predicting so many changes to the primary list ... and being a major player in the first round of the draft is suddenly on the radar.

Thankfully,  It looks like we won't lose any more than 1 of our top players so we could describe the changes as a major rebuild of our depth with hopefully a few diamonds in the rough emerging.

Yes it would seem Jason Taylor and co have been very busy for some time now. I thought maybe one or two gone such as Tyson and Garlett? Now with in a week we could see Jesse gone as well as Vanders on the move. Also moving up the draft into the first round. 

Looking forward to see what happens.
