List Mgmt. 2023 Post Season Fact File

Remove this Banner Ad

Here we go with the annual trade/draft fact file. I've pretty much copied the OP from last year so it's the same deal ...

There's so much chat going on in the Trades and Draft 2023 threads that it's impossible to keep up. Hundreds of posts a day.
So this is for the benefit of those like me who only want the executive summary of what's actually been confirmed (no BF or media speculation please):
  • Delistings
  • Trades completed
  • Trades officially requested, either in or out
  • Free Agents wanting in or out (and what sort of FA they are - RFA, UFA, DFA)
  • FS or NGA prospects confirming they want to be drafted by us
  • Any changes to our draft picks - we should have 10, 17, 36, 63
  • Players we select in the ND and RD
  • Any other list management decisions in case I've forgotten some category
  • Confirmed Coaching Changes (new category this year)
No discussion of whys or wherefores please (that's for the draft/trade/coaching threads) but clarifications and corrections are welcome. Also tip-offs as news breaks.

I'll try to keep a summary up to date in the OP as follows. I'll also see if the mods can sticky this thread until the New Year.

FUTURE DRAFT PICKS
  • The WB future first has been traded to the Gold Coast in an exchange of draft picks (see Draft Picks above). At this stage we have no first round pick in 2024.
  • The WB future fourth also went in the four club deal that landed Nick Coffield.
  • As at 18 October 23 Lore's provisional draft order for 2024 has us with only picks 30 and 42 in the top 80. It's only based on 2023 finishing position and there is still a lot to play out in 2023 trading. No doubt things will change a lot before the 2024 draft!
