Suspect the bolded will be gone, maybe Poppy too.2019: Grant Birchall, Shaun Burgoyne, Jonathan Ceglar, James Cousins, Oliver Hanrahan$, Ricky Henderson, James Frawley, Conor Glass, Changkuoth Jiath (R), Harrison Jones (R), Teia Miles, David Mirra, Dylan Moore, Tim O'Brien, Marc Pittonet, Paul Puopolo, Ned Reeves (R), Jackson Ross, Jarryd Roughead, Ryan Schoenmakers, Will Langford*, Tim Mohr (R)
Timmy Almost as a forward was a struggle to watch. He showed talent but always did not quite deliver.I hope we don't jump the gun on a TOB extension due to a couple of decent games, wait to the end of the season and judge his season as a whole.
Bolded are the players I reckon are going to be gone at the end of this year.2019: Grant Birchall, Shaun Burgoyne, Jonathan Ceglar, James Cousins, Oliver Hanrahan$, Ricky Henderson, James Frawley, Conor Glass, Changkuoth Jiath (R), Harrison Jones (R), Teia Miles, David Mirra, Dylan Moore, Tim O'Brien, Marc Pittonet, Paul Puopolo, Ned Reeves (R), Jackson Ross, Jarryd Roughead, Ryan Schoenmakers, Will Langford*, Tim Mohr (R)
I reckon the bolded ones in this lot are up potentially as trade bait this year- especially Smithy and Shiels. The others I reckon are currently trade bait/fighting hard for a contract.2020: Daniel Howe, Jarman Impey, Mitchell Lewis, Ben McEvoy, Darren Minchington^, Harry Morrison, Conor Nash$, James Sicily, Isaac Smith, Ben Stratton, Kaiden Brand$
2021: Luke Breust, Blake Hardwick, Tom Mitchell, Jack Scrimshaw, Tom Scully, James Worpel
2022: Jack Gunston, Alastair Clarkson, Liam Shiels
Why on earth would we delist Ceglar? If McEvoy goes down then who do we play? Pittonet would be the only dedicated ruck option. Otherwise you'd have to throw Lewis or Patton into the ruck. Far from ideal.I think these 7 will be delisted...
I’m a regular at the Auburn Hotel and personal friends with Johnny Barker and Roughy( who both live walking distance to the pub) . I’ve seen those 3 on many occasions and Johnny often texts me to join them. I’m a diehard supporter and try and get what I can out of them, and as a friend they don’t give much away.Wasn't sure where to post this but on the way home on the train after tonight's North game bumped into an ex-Box Hill Hawks player. He had a few but was still quite coherent and started telling me about how he was down at the Auburn hotel and bumped into Roughy, Jordan Lewis and Johnny Barker (had photos on his phone of the 3 of them so that much looked very true) and he was saying they were convinced Clarko gone to Carlton for $11Mill over 5 years.
He said he was at Box Hill from 2000 to 2004 and was crapping on about Donald McDonald and saying how Libba was one of the biggest c!@#%s he had ever met so them being the coaches over those years put him as being true on that score.
The years he served he may have had a small cross over with the other boys but doubt they would have had much to do with each other.
My guess is he bumped into them and got chatting about Box Hill and maybe they had met many years ago but doubt they would have been close at all.
Anyway for what's its worth - which is probably not alot.
Obviously Roughy is going and Langford has retired, but I would delist Miles, Minchington, Mohr, Shoey for starters, that would give us 5 picks in the draft (not including Langford). Hopefully we add Patton and Coniglio. Which would bring us to 3 picks ( 1 pick will be Finn McGuinness) and hopefully we use our first and 2nd before a bid on Finn comes. That would leave us with a rookie pick and 2 cat B selections, unless we delist Birch or trade for Hill with Smith and Ceglar. Also Poppy amd Burgs aren’t safe , but I would keep them if possible. Hope that makes sense, just typing out loud. Would love Kemp with our 1st pick (even though he’s done his ACL) and hopefully get McAsey, Pickett or Elijah Taylor before a bid for McGuiness comes. Once again just thinking out loudContract updates:

(IR) international rookie listed player
^ Will Langford retired from AFL football following the submission of total player payments for 2019. He is therefore retained on the list (as a rookie) for the purposes of salary cap and list management.
