So am I correct in saying that Bedford, Jordan, Chandler (® A), Lockhart (® A) and Bradtke (® B) are uncontracted at present.

What is the list lodgement cut off day for them to be contracted? Today or next Friday?

Yes, they are the OOC players altho I haven't seen an mfc confirmation of M. Browns re-contracting as a rookie.

I don't know the cut off date for them to be contracted.  I would guess next Friday Nov 27 leaving a few days to nominate for the Draft which close on Nov 30.  Could be wrong.

Final List for 2020 (excl Bennell) We have 1 list spot (either Rookie or Seniors) which is for Bennell.  If he isn't recruited it can be used for the SSP (ala Lockhart in 2019) or the mid season

So Petracca re-signed until the end of 2022. I'd be giving him a three year extension until 2025. Likewise, I'd be giving a four year extension to Oliver until 2026. Neither may want to sign contracts

Welcome Ben Brown! Welcome 2 first round draft picks! @DavidNeitz9I've checked a few websites and they say Bradtke is OOC this year so I'll stick with that for now as one way or another it w

also worth noting Bradtke wasn't listed in an official afl.com.au website about every clubs OOC around grand final week, its been linked in here before so might not expect any formal announcement about it

Does that mean we will have a list 0f 43 because we only have 1 b grade rookie?

The AFL has issued a new schedule of dates which I've posted in that thread.  The answer to your 2nd question:

Monday 30 November
•    List Lodgement 2
•    Out of Contract Listed AFL Primary List Players Draft Nomination Form and Player Request for Removal from List Form Lodged with AFL
•    Final date for Primary List delistings

This article on who gets an AFL lifeline states that “Melbourne has re-signed a number of players it is yet to make public including Mitch Brown, Jay Lockhart, Kade Chandler and James Jordon,” and suggests that Toby Bedford is our only player currently in limbo. 

 

so other than Bedford Is Bradke uncontracted?

Good question. I think that Cat B’s can be nominated to remain as a rookie for a third season and contracted at that time. Aaron Neitzke is also not contracted but can be drafted in the rookie draft and then contracted.

There aren't two players in the entire football playing population of Australia who are better prospects than Chandler & Jordon?

I find that absolutely extraordinary, particularly given that neither plays a role that can't be easily replaced.

It could be the reduced sal cap and the way the AFL is implementing it. 

Even renewing those players we have vacant spots on our playing list to add a DFA and a rookie or two (in addition to the 3 draftees we are reportedly to take).

Perhaps the club thinks that unless we can afford a player that will be best 30 then we are no worse off keeping the players we have whose strengths and weaknesses are known.

Where we stand: 

35 players on the senior list (max 38) 
3 on the Rookie A list (maximum 6) 
1 on the Rookie B list (max 2) 

We can have up to 44 players, we have 39, so 5 spots open - 3 senior list (3 draft picks?), and then 2 rookies. But we can just take one player in the draft and then we have hit our minimum number. 

 

The minimum list size for each club will be 37, which can be made up by as little as 36 senior listed players and one rookie.  To reach 44, clubs can carry 36-38 senior listed players, four-to-six Category A rookies and two Category B rookies.

With 18, 19, 28, 50 but only 3 spaces, we may well look to upgrade our picks or swap into next year in the lead up to the draft. That being said, not using pick 50 isn't a big deal.

Updates:

  • No more players OOC.
  • Re-contracting of Jackson, Bedford, Jordon, Chandler, Brown
  • Well deserved promotion of Lockhart to the senior list
  • Final List sizes confirmed
  • 'Used' draft pick 89 for Lockhart promotion

image.png.72a1bd94489cedcf84389934c47aa53e.png

Heading into the draft we have 35 senior players and 4 rookies (total 39) giving 3 senior and 2 rookie list spots.  3 Draftees will take us to the max allowed 38 senior players.  The 2 rookie spots can be used for a PSSP or (multiple) mid-season drafts.  And extra senior list spot can be created if we put KK onto a L-T injury list.

At this stage it looks like we won't be adding a DFA to the senior list.  A DFA will need to come as a rookie via the PSSP.

I feel confident there will be a draft pick change that involves pick 50 otherwise it is wasted as we don't have a list spot for it.  Reckon it will be #28 + 50 for a pick in the low 20's giving us the 3 picks at the draft.

I will update the games played when I do the final list post drafts.

I think the club will be watching the State league comps closely and get a player in Mid season draft when we remove KK off the list.  Not a bad idea I'm sure there will be a number of players that will not be drafted due to the fact that no one saw them in 2020.

Thanks Lucifer's Hero for the update, Very happy with the management of the list by the Dee's, put's the trust and ownership back onto our existing list and still have the ability to pick up 5 additional players to potentially strengthen the group. We have learnt from our previous experiences that the grass is not always greener....etc, etc

Well done MFC.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs.

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team
