    Early preseason start for Alex. I was watching him at my local oval today running 200s and 100 sprints (about 10 of each).

    That's good to see. Clearly willing to do the work required to be an AFL footballer

    I swear I read the same thing about Francis at the start of last preseason.

    Hm. Seems as though he'll get another year. Although if it's at the expense of Hind or Bewley I'll be disappointed.

    They have meetings and stuff this week and apparently the coaches are preparing off-season programs for them (not sure if that's all of them or just specific guys). If anyone was going to have an off-season program you would assume someone with an injury history like Morgan's would be first on the list. Fighting for a spot even moreso. Not sure if it's done every year, but I think at the end of 2015 the guys that were fighting for a spot would do extra work during the off-season and then they'd decide who would get a list spot based on that? Next week Worsfold starts with the recruiting stuff.

    On the basis of somebody seeing him run laps?

    Just a general vibe I'm getting from that and a few other thing. It's also quite possible that I'm way off the mark again.

    The fact that Richard Ings retweeted it made me think for sure you thought it was our Alex Morgan!

    DFA. But if we have offered a contract he will have to enter the draft. We might be happy to just let him walk.

    I can see North's strategy now...pretend to go for Kelly and Dusty whilst the real target was Morgan! Cunning.
