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

maybe davis too

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.

    HORSING AROUND by George On The Outer

    Before the match it was claimed that Collingwood were a “one trick pony” side.  Well that one trick worked very well against Melbourne, as they extended their winning streak to 11 for the season. Meanwhile, the Demons continued to horse around with structures which simply haven’t been working. The one tall forward option with resting rucks failed yet again, in an almost identical manner to the game against the Bulldogs recently.  93 more possessions, 65 inside 50 entries 24 more than the op

    THE BUBBLE by The Oracle

    "I feel like we've got more than enough experience in close games. It'd be nice to win one by five or six goals and have that pulse lower a little bit late in games, but that's not our story." — Scott Pendlebury on the eve of his team’s forthcoming Round 21 game against Melbourne. When you read words such as these, you know it’s time for Melbourne fans to be humble. The old enemy is up and about while our mantle of invincibility has vanished into thin air. A Magpie win against the Demons wo

    ANCHORS AWEIGH! by George on the Outer

    So came the cry from the Dockers as the S.S. Fremantle set sail with the hopes of all of their supporters on board on the mighty ship. Their task was to do nothing more than to defeat the Melbourne side and a top four position on the ladder was assured. The problem for them was that their leaky boat came up against the mighty battleship - Team Demon and it didn’t take long after they left port for their vessel to develop a multitude of leaks. The first salvo was fired by First Officer

    SWEET SIXTEEN by KC from Casey

    The game was an uneven match up from the very beginning. The Casey Demons, representing an alignment between the reigning premiers Melbourne and the outer southeastern expansion area centred around a sprawling Cranbourne with its rapid population growth and the stand alone Northern Bullants from the inner north who sit at the foot of the VFL table. With 14 AFL listed players and a couple more having experience at the elite level opening with the breeze at their backs, the result was inevitable.

    THE HUNGER GAME by Whispering Jack

    The game may well have taken place a day short of ten weeks ago but the atmospherics surrounding Friday night’s match between Melbourne (then Narrm) and Fremantle are light years apart from those that prevailed when the teams last faced off the MCG in late autumn. On one hand, the Demons were in the midst of a 17 game winning spree that included a drought breaking premiership victory. On the other, the Dockers were coming off a six goal thrashing at Optus Stadium in teeming rain against a then s

    DOG-TIED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were extended early against rivals Footscray VFL in their matchup played in wet and greasy conditions at VU Whitten Oval on Saturday but, after establishing their authority in the second quarter, they were able to tie up their opponents at the end to maintain their undefeated run which now stands at 15.  The game began under grey threatening skies and the wet conditions turned the game into a tight slog with scoring kept down to a minimum. The Demons were held goalless agai

    DOG DAY by George On The Outer

    It is said that every dog has its day and that was certainly the case when the Western Bulldogs defeated Melbourne under the roof at the Docklands on Saturday night.   While the Dogs were certainly at the very top of their game, the same couldn’t be said of the Demons. All around the ground, dismal individual performances and dismal team performances were the order of the day.  Fans should have been worried right from the start as the game turned into a goal-fest. This is not their team’

    RAINING CATS & DOGS by Whispering Jack

    Despite winning their game in the Red Centre at the weekend, the consensus among the pundits is that Melbourne’s days in the sun are over. Ten rounds into the season, they were the competition’s top dogs and regarded virtually unbeatable but their recent form (three wins from the last seven games) has put them well below par, perilously clinging onto second spot on the ladder with storm clouds on the horizon. The air of invincibility that once surrounded them is gone and the Demons face a t

    THE KOZZY SHOW by George On The Outer

    Q: Melbourne is playing Port Adelaide at Traeger Park, Alice Springs and once again, it doesn’t have a properly functioning forward line — so from where were the goals going to come?   A: Kysaiah Pickett.     In a one man show in front of his adoring fans, he racked up six majors to give the Demons the edge in the game and to finally run out winners by 14 points.     The result could well have been very different without his efforts with Melbourne failing to score a major

    SWITCHING ON by The Oracle

    We can’t take anything for granted, can we? After all, the Melbourne that took Port Adelaide for a long ride around the Adelaide Oval in early April of this year and switched off late in the game is finding it difficult of late to switch back on. Apart from a stellar display against the Brisbane Lions a fortnight ago, the Demons have laboured during the middle part of the season and, with a tough draw ahead of them, have reached a critical stage of the season after their first flag in decad

    STORIES by KC from Casey

    There were more than a few stories about Friday night’s game between the Casey Demons and Geelong at GMHBA Stadium. The first was one of complete domination in the first quarter (six goals to nil), ascendency in the last (five to two) and the second was about the void in between (zero to seven). The third was about how, in the end, the Demons retained their unbeaten record despite the hell of a scare they had on the rainswept spaces of the Cattery. However, the story that folk might be

    NIPPED by George on the Outer

    Melbourne’s twenty eight point loss to Geelong down at Taxpayer Funded Park provided plenty of cat-nip for the Geelong fans and their team.  After all, the Cats go away thinking they have now got the Demons sorted after the embarrassments heaped upon them last season and their taste of this cat-nip will get even stronger in the coming weeks, courtesy of the AFL draw which gives them three more home games at the same venue in the six remaining rounds.  Yet Melbourne, despite this loss
