    Langford’s trajectory in both directions ended up being quite remarkable. What a strange AFL career.

    Cheney and hunter cut from crows list. A little surprised on Cheney. Could be handy for a developing backline

    Blair, Oxley, Smith, McLarty delisted by Collingwood. Kirby has retired due to his heart issue. A shame for Kirby, he showed real talent but health needs to come first. McLarty maybe a touch unlucky given he’s a key position player that only spent 2 years on the list. He didn’t get a senior gig but he might be worth a lifeline to another club, VFL watchers seemed to think he was coming along well. No surprises with the other three players. Smith (24) and Oxley (26) are both Queenslanders, maybe Gold Coast could be interested in one or both as DFAs? Smith could be a solid-type if given a good run at it, he could be worth a shot I think.

    Thomas and Mihocek set to be promoted from the rookie list to the senior list.

    Broomhead and Murray set to be delisted and redrafted as rookies (provided they’re available at Collingwood’s selections). Murray is an interesting case if he gets found guilty (and gets a 2/3/4 year sentence). I imagine that Collingwood would no longer be obligated to keep him on the list in that case?

    They will probably keep him as an act of good will like they did for Keefe and Thomas

    I've heard Collingwood fans talk up McLarty for the past 2 seasons, Why has he been let go?

    I'm very angry with the Crows for delisting Cheney. He was one of the only players this year who showed any intent or effort. He really played well.

    Bustling potato of a player . Didn't realise he was 29.

    Didn't you guys trade for him?

    I know it's popular to blame SOS but surely more than one person was responsible for the generally diabolical drafting and recruiting decisions of Carlton in the past few years.

    The Wiley/Jaksch/(#19)Boekhorst for #7 trade was by Rogers the year before SOS came back to Carlton. I still remember SOS shaking his head in disbelief during the draft when Carlton reached for Boekhorst with #19. Might have been the thing that made him want to come back to the club. Either way, his recruiting/list management has been very good since he's been at Carlton, don't know why you're even including him in Carlton's previous bad trading & recruiting.

    I have no idea what was happening behind the scenes but Boekhorst was looking on an upward trend towards the end of 2017. Unless there were off-field reasons at play to go to the extent of delisting him and taking on players of the calibre of Shaw and Mullett was just bizarre.

    It took awhile for people to accept that Adolph Hitler was really dead as well :)

    So you equate Rioli with Hitler now he has left the Hawks?

    And they say Crows fans rip into players that leave...even we wouldn't go there and to be fair, Lever pretty much had the haircut for us to make the comparison...
