I realise there may be a few more possible delistings.

But from my understanding these will be the following jumper numbers available for any players drafted or traded in for next year's season in 2023.

It will also be interesting what jumper number Brodie Grundy may end up receiving at the Demons?

The following jumper numbers available for season 2023 are...

#2 - Nathan Jones retired in 2021 and the number was left retired for season 2022.

#6 - Luke Jackson is going back to his home state of WA to play for either Fremantle or West Coast.

#12 - Toby Bedford requested a trade to GWS.

#19 - Fraser Rosman has been delisted.

#28 - Majak Daw has retired.

#29 - Jayden Hunt has been picked up by West Coast as a free agent.

#38 - Mitch Brown has retired.

Anyway, that leaves at least 7 available jumper numbers for next year.

Personally, I think Brodie Grundy will be given either number #6 or number #2 but number #12 might be an option too.

Anyway, we will have to wait until about December or even January 2023 to find out who will be given which jumper number.

No. 29 will never be the same 😢

Except yes it will because Eden Zanker wears no. 29. 😍 don’t ever leave us, Edo!

And I won’t have to rename my chook. JH is still apt since they’re Harmesy’s initials too.

Try facing this to inform of a forced name change…

Oi that’s me on a good day! In fact that’s me after hair and makeup professionally done for the B&F. I thought I looked rather fetching. 🤭

So long as no current MFC player changes jumper number, which is the most ridiculous thing football players and clubs do.

The only time I don't mind it is if they are coming down from something like 47 to inside the first 20. Th idea of changing numbers to 'reinvigorate' careers used to seem really strange to me.

Nah I can't get around it, ever.

If you come to the club and get 47, make it yours.

Geelong's premiership 22 had O'Connor in 42, Stewart in 44, Close in 45 and Blicavs in 46. None of them have felt compelled to "move down" to a "better" number.

Grundy gets 12.

Then the comps best midfield is sequentially numbered.

10  Brayshaw

11  max

12  grundy 

13  clarry.

Trac to be half forward and jack goes wherever the danger is.

I love the synergy of this.

The (1)1-(1)2 punch gets my vote.

Stynes should have stayed 37? Tingay 52? Schwarz 44? Neitz 38?

Good players move to the good numbers!

Liam Jurrah was twice the player wearing #48 than he was in #24 🙄

BBB was a premiership FF in #50

Grundy takes #6, Pick 13 takes #12, Hunter grabs #19, Schache takes #28 (Omac's old number) and Pick 37 takes #38. Jones #2 takes one more year of absence and we give it to one of our 2 first round selections the following year in what is touted to be a super draft!

****UPDATE****

#26 - Sam Weideman has now been traded to Essendon.

-----------------------

I really like some of the suggestions for jumper number changes.

I also understand the argument of making a number "your own" too. Ben Brown has certainly made number #50 his own and I like that.

Each to their own I guess? 🤷🏼‍♂️

I am not against the idea of giving Joel Smith his Father's (Shaun Smith) number #29 jumper if he wants it? I feel number #44 hasn't brought Joel much luck, due to injuries, and a change of number might do him good? But only if he wishes to do so and it doesn't put too much pressure on him?

I do think jumper number #2 should be reserved for an extra special player though. It has a lot of history attached to that sacred number with Robbie Flower, Stephen Tingay and Nathan Jones having worn it.

Nevertheless, it's always fun to speculate and see who gets their suggestions correct. 😉

Not forgetting the dual premiership player, the great Alan Rowarth. Only 70 games because of injury, but a great Demon with a 70% win rate. Thanks Alan.

I get the romantic notion of your suggestion but, seriously, how could a change of number possibly make the slightest bit of difference to a player's form or luck with injuries?

Shhhh! The other numbers might hear you!

What constitutes a “good” number? Serious question.

How do we know who will become an “extra special player”????

The jumper number, while special in the heart of the individual player, is otherwise meaningless.

That said, if I had my way #29 would never be issued to anyone ever again. 😭 

In fact, every other club would be forbidden from giving their #29 to a player. Ever. 🙃

Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.
