    We're kidding ourselves if we think we've mitigated these draft sanctions.

    It's been a massive kidney shot.

    I feel last year they kept him on for a moral reasons and if they did good on the club for doing that

    So many players still out of contract and seem to be competing with each other for a spot for next year... O'Brien, Kav, Hams, Browne... we won't be keeping all of them!

    I'd say chapman, fletcher, winderlich will retire and then Browne, Dempsey, o'brien, Melksham, kavanagh and pears will all be pretty closely scrutinised with maybe 3 given 1 more year and 3 given the flick?? This of course will depend on if we keep Carlisle and if any of our other players either choose to leave or are offered up for trade, which I can't see happening.

    21 players still coming out of contract at the end of this year. Wonder how many of them we will keep...

    Apparently Caro went off last night saying that we will be losing a couple of extra players. She said

    Hird/N.Craig gone
    Carlisle - Gone
    Two of Coyler, Hooker, Myers & Bellchambers will also be gone.

    Does anyone have any information about these four (Coyler, Hooker, Myers & Bellchambers). Why she would be saying that? She is still just crazy right?

    I can't see Colyer, Myers or Hooksy leaving the club over this- they seem to bleed red and black and would be the type of guys who would be passionate about getting the club back to the top.

    needs 2/3 of Hooker, Colyer and Myers now.

    i've heard Colyer linked back home to WA and the Dees coming back for Myers again.
    Hooker i'd be staggered with. Should be VC behind Jobe next season

    Given that we have to use at least 95% of the salary cap anyway (it's a rule), we could offer Joe Daniher a new loooong term contract that's front-loaded (i.e. he gets lots of the money in 2016 when it doesn't matter, but in years 2017, 2018, etc, he'll get less than he otherwise would have, and take up less of the overall total cap than he otherwise would have).

    Suspended players are still getting paid (top-ups aren't covered by the cap).

    It's not directly related to contracts per se, but on the off chance anyone needs a reference point for which of our players are currently under WADA suspension, I've updated the OP.

    Hey Doss - Just a thought - next to those 7 players (Pears, Watson, Howlett, Hooker, Myers, Stanton, & Hocking) whose contract ends at the end of 2016, maybe you could say 'suspended 2016 - offered contract to end of 2017'. What do you reckon?

    I've put a note at the bottom of the OP to somewhat similar effect.

    Long way out but;

    Ashby (injured, others going past him)
    Ambrose (not up to it)
    Kommer (not up to it)
    Cooley (retired)
    Guilt and Dempaey may be in some trouble if list changes are required)
    Any of the Essendon12 that walk as well will obviously be included n list changes.

    Going to be a very very interesting year.
