It's always been 3 x Cat B Rookies. It went to 2 only for the Covid years.

I've searched high and low for any reference or 'talk' that in 2023 list sizes and sal cap will revert to pre-covid levels.

Would very much appreciate seeing something more about it.  TIA.

Does anyone know if it’s true that we have opted not to nominate Emilie-Brennan or whether we can’t pick him because we’re limited to 2 Category B rookies? 

Nothing official to say we have or haven't nominated him.  If we have, we can take him as a senior player rather than a B-rookie.

As I understand the list size rules a club can have up to 42 players comprised of Senior and A-rookie (36 to 38 senior players and up to 6 A-Rookies.  In 2022 our combo was 36 senior players and 6 A-rookie players.  We can change this mix to take FE-B

We currently have 34 senior players and 3 A-rookies.  So 5 potential list spots to fill. 

It has been said we will use two draft picks + our last pick for Chandler promotion.

The other point is having draft picks.  We have 13, 37, 90 and 118 the latter two will come into the 60-70 range.  One will be used to promote Chandler the other could be used for FE-B if the bid to match is late enough in the draft.

Having said all that the pointers are that we won't be taking him.

So can we still nominate a FEB?

Nominations have closed.

But if we have nominated him we can get him - see comment above.

I didnt realise you can have 3 Catagory B rookies so that gives Emile-Brennan a chance.  The AFL will surely produce a list of nominated players soon because Cooper Vickery (Hawthorn) Nathan Barkla (Port Adelaide), Jasper Scaife (Fremantle) and Yuyu Ashwin ( Collingwood) would be certain to be wanted as rookies at least by their clubs and theres been no mention of them being nominated.

It is yet to be confirmed whether it is 2 or 3 B rookies.

This article talks about list sizes.  how-your-club-is-placed-ahead-of-the-list-lodgement-deadline-and-upcoming-afl-draft  The underlying assumption is the status quo remains ie  Seniors + A-rookies should not exceed 42 and the max B rookies is 2.

According to that article, the clubs you've listed currently have zero or one B-rookie.

As mentioned in an earlier post we can take FE-B as a senior player if we nominated him or even if we didn't, if he gets to the end of the draft with no takers.

Hopefully, the AFL produces a list.  And that list sizes are confirmed.

There was something I heard that it's going back to normal, but as there's no official word yet, it makes it very frustrating and I'm now starting to think that clubs can go to max allowed list size as pre Covid, but the minimum can stay at the Covid years level. I'd be shocked if the list sizes don't go back to normal as the salary cap surely goes up due to the following points below. Surely you can't have the salary cap go up and the list sizes stay at Covid year levels.

 

-Players currently having access to 28 per cent of forecast defined AFL revenue. The broadcast deal's price is $643 million per season, up on the current $473 million per season. 

 

-The Soft Cap limit will increase by an additional $500,000 in 2023 and a further $250,000 in 2024. 

 

-Total Player Payments/Average wage for the following seasons (Covid years didn't go up as planned below):

2016: $10.37m / $309,000

2017: $12.45m / $371,000

2018: $12.6m / $375,000

2019: $12.76m / $380,000

2020: $13.02m / $388,000

2021: $13.28m / $396,000

2022: $13.54m / $403,000

Maybe no announcement on list size is because the new CBA that has just expired has not been finalised.  Theoretically, increase in sal cap means more players.

However, players may want to 'catch up' what they lost during the covid years cut backs so the list size may not go up in 2023.  patrick-dangerfield-reveals-covid-reward-clause-he-wants-written-into-the-next-afl-cba

Also, given that clubs have managed fine with the current list size (42 + 2 B-rookies) and a Tassie team, the AFL may not increase list sizes at all...

I would be surprised if list sizes weren't as per 2022, next year.

You make very good points. I don’t think West Coast did so well with the list size last year though 😂

Serious question, would we have any interest whatsoever in Emile-Brennan if he wasn't in our NGA?

As with Moniz-Wakefield and Mac Andrew, people are putting on their rose-coloured glasses regarding players who really don't fit our needs, if indeed they are even an outside chance to make it as AFL players. 

I get that a NGA player can be a free hit, but Emile-Brennan is going to chew up a heap of development resources to get him even remotely close to AFL standard.

According to this article we have nominated him  afl-draft-2022.

Interestingly it shows the latter rounds of the drafted truncated to a few teams.  Not sure the logic behind it.  But anyway, it shows our picks as 13, 37, 78 (round 5) and 83 (round 6).

While it was reported we would take two players at the draft (and promote Chandler with our last pick) there is scope to take F-EB with pick 78.

 

Edit:  I have reservations about the accuracy of the listed NGA nominations as it lists Keeler as Adelaide's nominee and they have chosen to not nominate him albeit he was eligible. 

Also, they have shown Kyah Farris-White as an NGA nominee but he joined us as a B-rookie.

So NGA nominations are still bit of a mystery.

Based on what assumption?

Didn't realise you could already come to the conclusion that EB is going to chew up a heap of development with zero facts to back this up.

Sometimes players who look like they need lots of development only need a professional environment to become the player we hope they will become.

At one stage Finn look like he was going to be a top 40 player why the drop off?

No offence to Fox News but I would rather see confirmation of this on the AFL site.

The list is definitely not definitive, it's more of a list of NGA players that are possibly draftable prospects.  As well as Keeler, there are other discrepancies.

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
