I think Tapscott Bail and blease are contracted to end of 2014.

Davey and rodan have retired guys not delisted... (as has Macdonald)

jetta gillies sellar and couch probably out

Surely Davis is gawn.

I'd also say Gillies, Sellar, Jetta, and Couch have played their last games.

While he's been ordinary this year, I'm pretty confident Tapscott will survive. Bail, Nicho, and Tynan are probably 50-50s, depending on who's available in the draft/free agency?

Guys we have a contract thread to check out before you comment on those contracted. Unfortunately it includes a lot of guys I don't want on the list. And also remember Hogan will come onto the list.

So:

Retirements: Rodan, Davey, Macdonald

Delistings:

- Sellar - no need for another depth tall when we have Pedersen

- Gillies - see above

- Davis - see above

- Jetta - just hasn't showed enough

- Tynan - not coming on quick enough, poor skills

- Nicholson - skills and vision aren't up to it

- Couch ® - slow, small, poor skills

- Magner ® - see Magner

Possibly Stark ® - injured all year and not great when he isn't

Trades if we can get anything
- Blease
- Struass

- Bail

- Tapscott

In terms of main list its 9 changes plus maybe more with trades. Hogan will come on and then we'd need to find 8 more: 5 draft, 1 PSD, possible rookie upgrade for Clisby, 1 PSD/FA, possibly traded players in for a player for player trade. So that's how it's looking.

Roos likes his players to have a tank and be able to run out games, he likes them to have discipline and do a job he asks no matter how simple it may seem and if everyone does what is asked the team achieves the goal and the player stays - This is a plus for Nicho and Bail

I think Jetta will remain and a remote possibility Sellar will be kept as depth.

Who are we going to delist then?

Sellar has to go - we have a huge amount of tall forwards and backs - we need mids

Surely the club know that Nicho and Bail are not part of this clubs future.

We also need depth for our back line... who comes in if Frawley or Garland go down? I think the delistings will be Couch, Magner, Tynan, Bail, Nicholson, Gillies and maybe Tynan and Davis... as well Rodan, MacDonald and Davey who have retired - that gives you 11 changes already. I see Sellar as being a little like Jesse White and maybe worth persisting with. And after watching Jetta on Sunday, I think he still shows some promise.

We have a few retirements at the senior end, but I think the younger players will have to wait on the new coach, whoever it may be. I doubt the club will start culling before then, and given we don't know what sort of priorities the new coach has, it is fairly pointless to speculate at this stage. I can say that there are a few I'd like to be rid of who are contracted still, and there are some I'd love to keep who are OOC and may be moved on simply to make room on the list.

Not sure why taggerts in danger. Hobbled by injury and his work load looks to have been managed all year and from the bits ive seen id stick with him for another year.

Taggert has been on the list for two years.... Hasnt played one game... People are eager to trade Watts, but are happy to hang on to players that have shown zero? Jeez....

This is why I'm so angry that they didn't let him play this weekend. At least give the guy one chance to show he can play. It's not like he hadn't earned it with his performance for Casey. He should have been in the side after kicking five, but for some reason they simply refuse to give him a shot. Now he's going to have that stigma hanging over him with a new coach moving in looking to make changes. It really has to hurt his chances of still being here next year.

Are you suggesting that he'll ask to be traded? You've got to be kidding! The kid has had quite literally no impact at senior level. Has showed very little to suggest he will become a good player (bar a few good performances at Casey). We have persevered with him through early injuries and he hasn't repayed the club in the slightest. He is LUCKY to still be here and owes the MFC for giving him a shot.

With three retirements, as i understand we are no obligation to the AFL to delist anybody it is merely what Roos and the recruiting panel feel we can secure through trade, free agancy and the draft who may improve the list. Having said that, most of the suggestions made by Demonlanders appear on the mark.

Agree about Jetta, Sellar a spud though!

For me, the jury's still out of Sellar... every now and then he does show something, and I think a coach like Roos may just be the person to be able to bring out the necessary consistency. As I said, more for depth, but with the right tutelage, who knows?

That could be said for many other players, hardtack. Neeld recruited for his paltry game plan and only played players he thought could execute it - Jack Fitzpatrick missing out for instance.

I think players like Jetta and Davis have more chance of coming good under the right guidance. Sellar for mine needs to make way for another midfielder.

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid
