Hmm lot of out of contract Victorians on that list.
(Log in to remove this ad.)
Taberner - 2 year
Blakely - 2 year
Sheridan - trade
Crozier - 2 year deal
Griffin - delist
Mundy - contract
Ballantyne - trade\ 1 year
Fyfe - 5 year deal
Suban - delist
Ibbotson - FA\delist
Dawson - delist
Johnson - retire
Sandilands - 1 year
Clarke - delist
Langdon - resign if possible
Tucker - resign if possible
Balic - resign if possible
Collins - 1 year\trade
Yarran - delist
That is 7 players who we should delist, plus a number of player who we have to try to keep. I think 2 or 3 of Crozier, Sheridan, Balic, Tucker and Langdon will go.
We could easily have 10 players leave our club, so we need to bring in 3 or 4 experience players again to keep us moving forward.
I'm not so sure it will benefit us to bring in ten seventeen year olds, but I also don't want to draft the mature age players.
Free agents put us on a big of an uncomfortable age group but if we offered five+ year deals to them we might be able to get them cheaper per year purely because we take the longer term risk.
I also don't think we should only look at Western Australians looking to return home as long as their career will finish with us.
Zaharakis is one I think we could use.
Agree we need to target players in the 24-27 age group.
Matera, Adams, JJ, Conigilio (FA 2019) etc
If we can target a type I would like the best runner who has the best kicking skills in the draft.
More Brad Hill than Sam Menegola, someone who will find infinite space and then use the ball well, so we gain 90+ metres per disposal.
Trouble is that player might be too high in the draft.
Brodie Smith is a free agent next year too
JJ should be top of the target list.
We'll be getting Jason Carter next year.
Just a reminder

Winter is comething
Chopeth the wood.
Anyone have a feel as to when we are going to start to sign contracts for this year.
Normally we would have had a few sign.
Yes I know that we were waiting on the TTP to be finalised but that's what 3 weeks ago.
I think we are just waiting on the TTP, hopefully a few will get done during the rounds.
I think we may be trying to get Fyfe sorted first. Then we will know how to structure the other contracts. If Fyfe wants too much or gets offered 1.5m a season and decides he wants to go then it greatly alters how we structure up our list TTP.
I didn't know Ballas was a restricted FA. He must be on good coin 500k+.
Griff, Dawson, Ibbo, Suban and likely Johnson to finish up this year aswell all on decent dollars.
Money really shouldn't be an issue for us keeping who we want to keep.
Will be good if they do a Christmas in July style announcement.
"On the first day of Christmas, Freo gave to me, a Blakely 3 year deal...."
"On the second day of Christmas, Freo gave to me, Balic signing a 2 year deal....."
"On the third day of Christmas, Freo gave to me, a Suban deeeee-listing"
"On the 12th day of Christmas, Freo gave to me, A Fyfe 5 year deal....."
You know, nice and jolly.
Mundy should be changed to 2018. He has hit the criteria to trigger another season.
Also, Grey is out of contract at the end of the year.
Edit: Can't see Deluca either, he's a rookie who will be hoping for an extension.
Really want this CBA to be completed so we can sign up some of these players
Sandi just signed a one year extension (now end of 2018) and Sean Darcy a two year contract extension (now end of 2020)
Beat me to it! We want more signings!
Nothing says bye bye Zac and Jon more than Sandi on for another year.
Think we'll be drafting at least one more ruck this year
Sandi. Darcy. Apeness. Strnadica. Taberner.
Spoilt for choice...
I actually think he could be key to our rebuild. Still young enough IF he ever gets his knees sorted. We just need someone for two years as injury cover for Sandi whilst Darcy develops. Otherwise just pump games into Darcy and fast track him - and pray for no injuries or dented morale if he gets towelled up. I'm a closet Zac Clarke supporter and admire his efforts of playing injured since 2013 - but enough is enough and needs to get his body right. Come at me!
I am not a fan of Clarke , but since freo already paid him for 4 year of musical festival fees , might as well paid him another year with possibility of game and performance trigger extension second year .
