Key Off-Season Dates
This is a comprehensive list including dates for draft combines, list lodgements, delisted free agency windows and return to train dates. I had to collate these from three different club websites because the AFL is lazy af and doesn't have it on their website, so thought it might be helpful to share:

FAQs & Resources Thread

It has an index at the top with threadmarks so it's easy to find what you're looking for – or easier than scrolling through 250 pages of AFL Rules, Regulations and CBA pdfs anyway.

These sorts of questions are all answered along with a bunch of other resources made by posters from across BigFooty (feel free to add to it!):

Of course there is the fear that Bruhn and Taranto will be heavily targeted. But I think after this year they can easily see how they are a big chance to win a premiereship in the next few years if they stay put.

I wouldn't overcomplicate things going after another pick tonight, especially for Howes ....unless it's Idun level gold late in the draft. Keep our picks for next year which is stacked for talented talls, We might need to draft a tall forward....again.

Agree we have had a VERY good night. People are lording Freos draft haul....but I think we might have come out winners.

Indeed, hard not to “win” with 2 early picks taking local boys

the Toffees, the Bays.
Caruso/ Quayle have made some intriguing calls in the past, I think they do a great job. Such as;
1. Spotting a killer competitiveness behind the choirboy demeanour of Sam Taylor.
2. Conor Idun bought so much vibe to the team last year, his personality binds all the young guys close.
3. Maybe Caldwell/ Hately/ XO was 1 out of 3, but XO will hopefully stick around a la Kenners and be a great clubman.
4. Still haven't explored the potential of last years picks, of which Angwin was almost young enough to be in this years group.
5. If Finn Callaghan does play 2022, it might be that flanker role that Pez does. Around the flanks to defend, distribute, and an occasional sausage roll.
6. Leek Aleer - WOW! Very excited where those spring heels might take him.
