    I'd like to see that. I've seen some horrendous sides over the years.

    Melbourne and St Kilda in the late 70s and early 80s.

    Sydney in the early 90s.

    Fitzroy in the mid 90s.

    You've already seen it.

    I can't recall a more injury depleted Carlton outfit since 2002.

    Grey would be a good pick.up for a side missing some on field grunt. Hang on. Maybe we should list him. Lol

    Neade and Barry cut from Port. Those 2 plus Wingard and Polec is a fair bit of good talent off their list.

    Apparently Leunberger has retired from Essendon.

    Recall him being handy in his Lions days.

    Strange one, I suppose they can only have so many players that only run one way ?

    If you could combine the best bits of Menzel and Dahlhaus - boy you would a player that could run, chase and kick...

    Why baffling? Geelong clearly didn't believe he can help them improve. He attracted next to zero interest in the trade period, and bottom teams now in Carlton, Saints and Lions have all said they don't want him even though he will cost them nothing.
    It looks like the game has passed him by.

    Not sure it really has. Anyone who watched him this year knows he's still a gun.

    I think it might be more about finals and being 100%. Menzel kills it when fit, but for Geelong to make a proper run at a flag, we need to enter finals with a stable team of players who are fully fit and conditioned. The chances that Menzel won't be in and out with niggles or injury is low, so maybe the club has decided we need to move on. Not sure if I agree.

    We might also have decided to play Gaz as our third forward instead. Would make sense to minimise Gaz's risk of injury and use his kicking for setting up/scoring goals.

    Tim Mohr cut from GWS. I remember him being not so bad a few years ago. However I didn't realise he's now 30. Might get picked up?

    You're probably right, unless someones looking for cheap, big bodied, mature defender depth.

    Injury played a part, did his ACL in 2014, then again in 2015 and by the time he recovered others had taken his spot.

    Best current player with an injury curse might have finished his career now, would be silly of a club not to take him for nothing though, on a 1 year contract

    Hawks delist whitecross and Lovell

    Hope whitey gets a go somewhere. He's not a superstar, but would provide great leadership at the likes of GC, saints or carlton

    Most unlucky Hawk from 2008 onwards? Selected in 2007 and played 111 games but missed out on the 4 flags.

    Would be a good depth player at any club and surely the rebuilding sides would have a good look at him.
