Really? Walker's a first-year rookie who went really close to making his AFL debut and who was selected for praise a fair bit by members of the coaching staff.
McGuiness, sure, but he's a Cat B rookie isn't he? We don't lose much by giving him another year.
Obviously neither of these guys are hacks, they've made it on to AFL lists.McGuinness is a very good player if he can put on the required muscle.
But there's a Telephone Book sized list of guys who have worked their way in and out of the emergencies without debuting then left the AFL system completely. I thought this might be the case for Walker.
As for McGuinness - he has some interesting attributes but his development looks lagging 2 years into the system and he's never had continuity with his body or performance to mount a serious case for promotion.
If I'd been forced to choose the next 2 delistees they would've been near the top of the list, not that I hoped for or wanted it to happen.
