I will preface this by saying I have no idea how clubs work out how many to have on the Senior list and how many on the Rookie list, but by my reckoning we have 35 on the Senior List and after the delisting of Tom McKenzie, 4 on the Rookie List. Obviously Zurhaar has to upgraded, making it 36 and 3. Surely that gives us 4 picks in the National draft or if we sign Walker as a DFA, 3 picks in that draft. That is 26, 27 and 47 and only 50 would be wasted unless we are able to do some pick swaps to convert 47 and 50 into something a little higher.

However wasting 50 is surely not such a problem if we think that having a reasonable DFA instead of pick 50, better suits our list requirements. Effectively pick 50 becomes a DFA selection. Or am I completely barking up the wrong tree?

Have you counted Bonar in that?

Bring in Walker, try McKay as a part time ruck in the vfl. Xerri perma forward.
Using Larkey/Durdin/Daw/McKay as a ruck chop out is better than playing 2 rucks imo. Gives us added flexibility with matchups etc. especially if all four are playing.

It'd also allow us to play Campbell instead of Goldstein which is a bonus.

It's not even a luxury, it's a requirement. At least until we get our outside run issues sorted.

You, Mr north man and Mr Taswegian should all together and reacharound it out.

I mean, I like a bit of objectivity but you 3 have me wanting to take the nuggets out of the oven and go all Sylvia Plath after most of your posts.
I almost got bashed by a lesbian at a house party after cracking a joke about Sylvia Plath's death being a simple housework accident.

There's some fairly aggressive, spiteful and mean-spirited posts flying about and you choose to denigrate me.

No point looking at me for help if I was there, as I would have been pissing myself laughing.

Hard pass on Bennell.

We've already got our share of continually injured players.

I reckon its a no before we even consider the off field hurdles he'd have to clear.
If we got Bennell on board, I’d be full of hope - just like I was with Hall. However, I agree with what your saying OF. Who knows, maybe Hall will come good next year, anyway. My sense is that both players have pretty similar upsides. Am I correct?

The big clubs don't get the Kelly/Coniglio/Cameron types either, so if I had to choose between getting top ten (well, 11 for Bonar) picks like Ahern and Bonar on the cheap or paying two first rounders for good but not top shelf types like Shiel, I know which I'd take.
Agree. However, I would have dearly loved to have gotten Kelly. All the other players we have shown interest in, I was fairly meh about - for various reasons. However, Josh Kelly was my natural Wells/Harvey replacement in the team.

I don’t understand why she was so angry, was she upset about the cleaning products used?

did you warn her about the dangers of mixing bleach and ammonia when oven cleaning?

He could be the JWS replacement. Talented father-son who will never play a future game for us.

We’ve been through this, you can’t assume a woman’s preference just because they declined your amorous approaches.
You're wrong, JLG famously only accepts party invitations if every woman there is a lesbian and even more famously only lights his cigarettes with copies of The Bell Jar.
