Didn't yet because it's not officially confirmed, but I guess we might as well.

Do we have a link to the trigger cause?
edit: (I assume he has met it)
There was a similar article quoted into Baguley's thread from June or something, that said he was close to the trigger. He's played every game this year so if it's number of games he must have met it, right?
I'm sorry mate but Final year and More than a year look the same to me. I guess they're red and green respectively and as a poor colour blind soul, I cannot tell the difference very easily.
but seriously, I changed the colours in the OP, hope it helps.
From the remaining out of contract players on both the senior and rookie lists who do you think will be delisted this off-season?
This includes players you think will be delisted and then retained by being placed on the rookie list.
I have simply included all the remaining out of contract players (I do not expect Sam Draper to be even remotely considered to be delisted).
Jobe Watson, Brent Stanton and James Kelly have all retired and Heath Hocking and Yestin Eades (rookie list) so currently there are 4 senior list spots and 1 rookie list spot to be filled via trades, free agency and drafting.
There are 5 remaining out of contract senior listed players and 4 remaining out of contract rookie listed players. Next season the rookie list will still be in place and category A rookies will be available to play round 1 without another player being on the long term injury list.
I wouldn't want to have my name in red at the moment (last year of contract). I think the club has (done well) and signed up all of it's priorities. Any player without a contract in 2018 at this point could justifiably not be offered an extension.
Hey all, im new to this big footy thing. I wanted to ask all you Melbourne based supporters, I am a bombers fan living in SA and the word on the street here is Crows are going to go hard for Raz Fantasia come end of next year... feeling nervous! What are your thoughts?
Contracted to 2019 and I don't think we want him going anywhere, but in this day and age it's hard to know anything for certain. I refuse to name favourites after some of my previous favourites got traded out, but if I had any he'd be one of them. And welcome, btw
We had 39 on the senior list this year, so with four out (Watson, Stanton, Hocking, Kelly), and three coming in via trade (SSS), we will have 38 once that is done, with two open spots. We have to bring in three on the senior list via national draft/rookie upgrades, so at least one more player has to come off the senior list to make space (either traded/delisted/demoted to rookie). If not Francis via trade, then it will have to be one of these guys:
Out of contract:
It's likely that only one will be delisted/traded/demoted, unless we go with 38/39 on the senior list. I doubt we delist someone who is serviceable depth for the sake of taking pick 103 or 121 to the draft.
If 25 and 30 go for Stringer, that leaves us with picks 48, 67, 85 to take to the draft. If we don't want to use 85 in the draft, then we will need to upgrade a rookie.
Ben McNiece (Cat B)
I suppose we could theoretically upgrade Lavender (loophole?) although I think that's less likely than the others.
You're allowed 6 catA rookies with a senior list of 38, 5 with a senior list of 39, 4 with a senior list of 40. Assuming we upgrade one Cat A rookie, and with Eades already delisted, we will have 2 Cat A rookies and 2 Cat B. We will have space for one more Cat B, and depending on how many we have on the senior list, up to 4 Cat A rookie spots.
