This is just a placeholder to get opened later in the year when it actually matters.

Wasn't sure where to put this so feel free to move as necessary Mods.
It would appear Rocky has any extra consideration now when he comes out of contract later this year - he just tweeted he and his partner are expecting in September.
Firstly - congrats Rocky
Second - probably makes his next contract all about family rather than club I would imagine, and while I wouldn't want to second guess, you would have to imagine he would be reluctant to move if he has a newborn (unless his partner is from Vic like him?)
I hope it doesn't mean Rocky will miss any of our finals
Congrats to Rocky. Having a child can certainly make you grow up and reflect on your life.
Yes, it could very well be a great thing for him and for his footy.
I certainly think it helped Dayne Beams.
Also worked a treat for mitch robbo.
how long have him and his partner been together?
<S>Trade Rocky, trade Zorko. Stockpile top ten draft picks.</S>
Suggested trading Zorko last year and got shouted down and rightly so......should be at least two rounders now.
lol i was right there with you. I might have been the first to suggest trading current elite senior players who didn't figure to be here when (if) our current youngsters were of an age to be competing for a championship, might be a feasible tactic to speed up the rebuild. I sure copped keyboard bashing. However Zorko was the one player I said I'd keep.
My fingers are crossed for a quiet trade period. I quite like our list, but we need to let this group develop rather than make wholesale changes each year. I'd say that retaining players would be a far greater priority than attracting new talent at the moment. There isn't the need to get more draft picks either with our two first rounders.
If McStay, Scache, Cutler and Rocky get signed up and there's only 5 or less senior list changes at the end of the year, I'll be really happy.
Baby is due in September
If you look at our list turn over the last few years I agree with you in stability. We have two possible pick tens this year add Ballenden into the conversation and then there's next years draft as well that the club has identified as accruing top 25 picks to get that talent into the club. Thought that we were quite clever in moving back one spot and getting pick 16 from GWS and could be another way to get more picks without trading out players. We do have a number of important players coming out of contract so it will be a wait and see proposition in regards to stability.
I'd be surprised if we keep both McStay and Cutler. Both exploring options.
here we go again
McStay to leave. Just a feeling
The non-stop 'McStay has McGone" jokes will be intolerable if he leaves.
Things can change nothing's set in stone don't take my word as 100% I don't wanna deal with a repeat of last time. Just letting you know they are exploring options.
Yeah I have the same feeling sadly.
Would be very disappointed to lose either or both. I have a feeling McStay will go to the Dogs with his mate Boyd. Still only a feeling and would love to be wrong!
Those whispers have been around in various circles for a while so I daresay it is happening. Lets just hope they feel Fagan is the right person to take them forwards. Winning a few more games will help keep them.
Well should be fine for this year then. She's not a cat giving birth at the same time every year.
Would hate to lose either of them but Cutler is a must keep.
Rocky clearly doesn't think we are going to have a great year....or his lack of planning is staggering
Getting pretty annoying to keep hearing whispers of players wanting to leave.
We will go nowhere as a club if we keep losing young quality players year after year. Very disheartening.
Is it as simple as winning more games? Think it's more complex than that.
List is well balance. I'm not expecting to lose anyone. Schache waiting for that bonus from us. Don't blame him
