    Unrestricted Free Agent Jack Lonie [delisted]

    Should have happened a number of years ago. He's got some tricks and skills but he's way too physically limited and has trouble executing the basics. I really wanted us to go for the other midget in the 2014 draft - the one who was the best kick and decision maker I'd seen at junior level

    Recommitted Tristan Xerri [contracted and requested a trade to St Kilda, didn't get there]

    So it was a ploy all along. Just like when we pretended to go after Mark Blake to lure Steven King out of Geelong. Welcome to St Kilda, Tom.

    Pretty sure he just departed Brisbane to seek opportunity at another club

    I'd much prefer for us to pick up Archie Smith for free rather than cough up anything of value in a trade for Xerri.

    Free Agency Luke Dunstan [joins Melbourne as an unrestricted free agent]

    Glad to have him off the list so he can't tempt the coaches to play him with impressive VFL numbers. He is never going to be good enough to establish himself in the best 22 of a finals side. Outside of a couple of good patches of form in contract years he has been well below the standard...

    Recommitted Ben Long [contracted and staying at St Kilda]

    I think if his surname wasn't Long, Ben probably wouldn't be on an AFL list. He has never been able to find enough of the ball and his skills are scrappy. His best asset is his physical presence but he also regularly gives away dumb free kicks. In 59 games he has never had more than 18 disposals...

    Roast Stkilda in no mans land

    I think the start of the season showed that the playing group had a finals hangover and got ahead of themselves after 2020. There were also some very poor list management calls (recruiting Frawley/McKernan/Hunter, keeping Dunstan/Lonie/Kent/Geary) and they clearly screwed up the pre season which...

    List Mgmt. 2021 Trade Thread - Part II

    Marshall and Ladhams would make a great combo but I don't think those guys fit if we then end up with Bing next year. A cheap ruck who can fill in for Paddy when he needs a rest makes more sense. I'd say grab an Archie Smith/Tom Cambpell/Flynn/Briggs this year and go for Bing in 2022. B...

    Roast Stkilda in no mans land

    Again, he's an unrestricted free agent and will not be traded. If another team signs him it will likely be on a pretty low salary and we will receive something along the lines of a 4th round draft pick as compensation. Wouldn't surprise me if he ends up at Gold Coast on a 2 year contract at...

    List Mgmt. 2021 Trade Thread - Part II

    I'd be perfectly happy if we had a starting ruck spending 70% of the game rucking with Marshall playing 60% forward, 30% ruck and 10% bench. Just because Smith hasn't flourished as a backup ruck doesn't mean he can't work well with a capable forward/ruck like Marshall

    Plenty of good rucks don't do well as the second fiddle. Ideally we find someone to take the number one spot from Ryder

    I know Smith's stats don't look impressive with a quick glance, but keep in mind that he has been played as a backup to Stefan Martin or Oscar McInernery in EVERY game he's played except for two. In those games his stats were: 19 disposals (17 contested), 1 mark, 5 tackles, 30 hitouts, 9...

    List Mgmt. 2021 Trade Thread - Part II

    I'd be quite disappointed if Clav is gone. I thought he was decent in his few senior opportunities and is just hitting the age where he would be physically capable of playing AFL footy. Tall defenders out: Carlisle Frawley Roberton Clavarino Surely we're going to target a readymade opposition...

    Recommitted Hayden McLean [re-signed for two years]

    I'd be happy to take him cheaply but he would very much just be backup for Marshall. We need a more genuine ruck to fill in for Ryder when he needs to be rested and then take over the starting ruck role in 2023. I've liked McLean since he was at Sandy and was disappointed that we didn't take...

    So at this stage we have the following outs: Frawley Roberton Carlisle McKernan Dunstan Two key defenders, a general defender, a forward/ruck and a mid. You'd think we'd hang onto Clav and Joyce considering that they both performed reasonably well in their limited opportunities and the...

    I liked McLean at Sandy and was hoping we'd rookie him back then. Wouldn't mind getting him from Sydney but wouldn't trade a lot. I wonder if we'd look at Tom Clurey as a key back option. He's on the fringe at Port, has been a solid player for a long time and still has plenty of footy left in...

    Preview Round 23, 2021: St.Kilda v Fremantle - Blundstone Arena, Sunday 22nd August, 12:15PM AEST

    Possibly the worst 22 that we've fielded all year. Lock us in for a stirring win
