End of year delistings


bandicoot

Recommended Posts

Of our entire list (i don't include the rookies as i honestly couldn't care if they stayed on or were sent packing), the only one's i'd consider as keeping are Hogan, Jones, Petracca, Viney, Brayshaw, Gawn (though a rocket needs to be sent right up him), Oliver, Hibberd, Melksham (he's been good), Pedo, TMAC (unless a really good offer came up), OMAC (unless a good offer came up), Weideman (unless a good offer came up), Hunt, ANB (unless a good offer came up), Garlett and Jetta.

Several of the above are possibly open for trades, those not named above i would happily entertain offers for ( and some i have named above i wouldn't be closed to the proposition should it be greatly in our favour.

Delist them all then make them fight to the death for a spot back on the list. It's the only way, I've thought long and hard about this. 

Gladiator style. Only one minor problem, if only one survives, we may be light on for depth!

Bye bye Kennedy you spud. Never trade with Collingwood ever again please, they screw us every time.

I don't want to seem like a smart arse, but I for one was against letting Howe go and he only went because we virtually forced him out, didn't want Ben Kennedy and also wanted to keep Dunn for another year and let the contracted Garland go instead.

The anger on here for Howe at the time was ridiculous, who I believe wanted to stay a Demon.

Wow, Howe is in the AA squad, Dunn was serviceable, Kennedy will be gone and Garland was unlucky to do his knee.

We got shafted again by Collingwood, like Dawes, like Harry etc.

TheoX has a point.

Howe only wanted to stay on his terms, we needed him to play back he wanted to play fwd that is why he left.

Also at the time he left for all the good things he did he was also to unaccountable as a defender and would go missing for large parts of games (not that our current backs outside of Jetta are any better in that area), from what I have seen of him this year he has improved in those respects somewhat.

Not a delisting but I've noticed Weidemen like a couple of Collingwood posts on Instagram the last few days.. One of Daicos & Brown celebrating the win on Saturday (fair enough if not against us & the circumstances) & now one of Bucks resigning... Seems a bit odd

Hold the phone. He liked a post of opposition players celebrating a win after essentially knocking us out of the finals? That surely can't be right. Extremely poor form if so.

I wouldn't lose any sleep if any of the following are not at the club next year: Lumumba, Kent, Garland, Vandenberg, Vince, JKH, Hulett, Bugg, Spencer, King, Kennedy, T.Smith, McKenna, White, Wagner. Trengove is another, but at least he tries.

Sadly we can't get rid of them all, but hopefully at least half are moved on. We need to seriously prioritise midfielders this year, and stop drafting flankers and utilities.

Couldn't agree more with comments about midfielders. Apparently this draft has lots of potential but think the real currency in a trade here would be Tyson. 

Lets look at a centreline now with Tyson/Viney/Brayshaw

Brays a gem and hope his previous head injuries don't effect his style to continue to fulfil the regular callup to AFL elite

there banking on Trac coming on strong and becoming a mid which needs to happen sooner than later. His summer needs to be massive and will need to shed at least 5-10kg to do this (a la Rocky3) He is such a key to our midfield plans 2018+ beyond

Tom Bugg liked on from James Stewart from Essendon too

You can only trade players if they are on contract otherwise they can just walk. We need currency for the forthcoming draft,don't be surprised if Hogan,Tyson,Frost,JKH,Vince and Frost are put up for trade. Huelett,Spencer,Trengove,White and Kennedy to go. We do need mids, I remember Hodge was converted into a mid. On that basis Joel Smith and Maynard may become future 2018 mids.

No way will we trade Hogan

A bit hard to delist Lumumba when he's not even on the list anymore....

H the narcissist decided he didn't want to play immediately after list lodgement, thus remains on our list.   

A true definition of list clogger. An appalling acquisition.

Shockingly, 30 seconds of research on my phone while waiting at a tram stop reveals that Brown & Weideman were at Eastern Ranges together & would likely be mates.

ooh, conspiracy!

Am not big on putting injured players like Garland and Vandenberg on these lists - Garland is not a spud at all.

We need to find a role for him, down back he has become a liability.

We should have used him as a tagger all year, I think that should be his role.

Liability is being kind. His kick ins from points especially. Its a flip of the coin whether its coming right back - and most of the time its in the form of the oppostion kicking a goal.

Garland is contracted. But agree don't see him in our 22.

Spencer is a free agent.

Are you serious that you want to delist an 18 year old ruckman who has been injured most of the year. That is mind boggling.

I think Tim Smith is on the main list ATM, though it could have been a LTI list upgrade.

I think the days are numbered for Hulett, Trengove, White and Kennedy. the latter in particular seems incredibly unlucky as he's probably been close to our best and most consistent performer in the VFL this year. It seems that Goodwin isn't a fan.

Garland still has one year remaining on his contract. I'd expect the club will give him every chance to come back from his knee. 

Vandenberg is an another crack after missing this year with his seemingly cursed foot.

Anyone know how Mitch King is tracking? I like to think that a new contract is likely considering he's only just come back from an ACL this year.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.
