    With the end of season just 1 1/2 weeks away for many teams, the number of players retiring is beginning to climb rapidly. This thread is intended to be a one-stop-shop, listing all players who are confirmed as moving on to greener pastures - either by way of retirement, delisting, defection or trading.

    I'm sure I'll miss some with my first draft, so feel free to post updates in the thread to let me know. Please restrict it to departures which have been confirmed, not those who are "expected".

    Carlton looks likely to only have Houlihan in that mix.

    Official sources for these? Preferably a link to a media announcement on the club (or AFL) site, or in a "reputable" media outlet (The Age, Herald Sun, etc).

    I'm not adding them until they've been formally announced.

    Thought it to be a speculative list. Apologies, as Houlihan has not retired just yet.

    would it help to then add a speculative list. but only on multiple sightings.

    eg. brad dick is surely unlikely to continue due to ongoing injuries.

    tom hunter has retired. (never played)

    Fevola and Proud will be officially coming off Brisbane's list, though of course they haven't been at the club since before Round 1.

    If you want to expand it to include rookie elevations, Cam Pedersen has been confirmed as moving on to the senior list next year.

    there was a Collingwood player who retired very early in the season due to a serious neck or head injury I thought?

    Fevola, Proud, Brogan & Pederson all added.

    More than happy to include rookie promotions once they have been formally announced.

    Are you thinking of Adelaide's Scott Stevens?

    Actually, I think I remember the story you're referring to. It was about a player who had been long retired from the AFL.

    Sorry, I should have said Pedersen was moved onto North Melbourne's senior list:eek:

    What's the story with Milera Vader? Hadn't picked up that one.

    Tom Hunter was the Pies player.

    Like your pejorative use of defected too.

    milera and the crows agreed to part ways through mutual agreement. wasn't willing to put himself through enough to get to an afl standard. i think he's gone to the country now.

    Fixed.
    Couldn't hack the training workload required of an AFL footballer:

    Hunter added to the list. Yes, it counts as a retirement.

    Daniel Harris retired... what the? That came and went without any fuss at all.

    Not sure if you meant it, but you've got Cameron Pederson on the list. Not really a player who has moved to greener pastures in the way you described in the OP (that is, retirement, delisting, defection or trading).
