Cumberland, Biggie, Miller and Stack not signing on yet hasn’t impressed me at all when you consider Parker has already , Aarts etc.
Stack is going to sign a 1-year deal. Miller surely will be signed up. Haven't heard much about Biggie's prospects of a new deal.
Cumberland, you know my thoughts, must be signed kids a talented prospect and we are actually needing a mid-sized forward who can play tall, has good hands and has pace.

Is it possible he'll be delisted with a "promise" that we'll re-draft him if no-one else does? We may be clearing the decks just so we have draft picks available for draft night.
Highly possible I'd say. There are always one or two in this situation because we have to take X spaces on the list to the draft. Worst case goes back on the summer training list to take a space we hold over, I'd assume.

I hope that's not the case.
Looked the goods late in the year.i thought we would of given him a taste in the last rd.

He was a part of the brissie academy and even though they didn't match our bid for him, they may well snap him up for a late pick.
A small/medium goalkicker that doesn't need to win holding the ball frees to kick goals. They don't grow on trees

we're drafting Matt Roberts to cover that

don't understand why he hasn't been a priority re signing....this guy was kicking bags in the against grown men in the VFL, coming off the back of an ACL. has shown more than most of our draftees in the last 2 years...unless he is homesick or wants out, I'm surprised at the rumblings of him being delisted. again it might be like Stack, we need to clarify list spots before resigning

A poster mentioned Fitsch, I reckon he has a bit of Isaac Heeney about him. Similar build, likes to go for his mark, aggressive, but with more pace.

isn't there chat he doesn't want the jab?

maybe the club won't commit until he does??
He won’t get a game anywhere if he doesn’t get the jab, I hope he has another job

I hope we re-sign Cumberland, but he had two very good games at VFL level (the last two), but was relatively poor before that time. To be honest, looked like the speed of the game was too much at VFL level. Let’s not get too carried away with this guy being better than Castagna who has at least two performed very well at the highest level.

As I said though, do we hope we give him one more year. I suspect for a lot of these guys (Biggie, Stack, Miller), the trade period finishing and the AFL actually finalizing the salary cap amount etc. will be the two barriers standing in the way of having extensions/ new contract being executed.
