    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)

    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.

    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:
    Josh Green
    Jackson Merrett
    Craig Bird
    Alex Morgan
    Ben Howlett

    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.

    2017 rookies:
    Jake Long
    Sam Draper
    Shaun McKernan
    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.

    He is going to be a super player and the Crows will be looking at him for a Betts replacement. If we don't sign him up during the 2019 season and he head into September/October uncontracted, then I think he is going to go. I have a feeling the Crows will be more willing to outspend us, so it will come down to how much he wants to go home and maybe what we can get out of the Crows.

    The Age saying Green will get a contract.

    Played 17 games and was crucial in a few of our wins deserves it imo.

    And this is why, if Raz decides to go, he can get stuffed. Green is about to have a breakout year.

    Howlett and Bird delisted... but not Jerrett. Although we could still delist more, maybe. It's not our style to delist a heap in one go.

    The POLL has two errors.
    Ben McNiece has signed a one year deal and is not delisted.
    Sam Draper signed a two year deal not a one year deal.

    The OP has one error.
    Ben McNiece signed a 1 year deal not a two year deal. So his contract expires the end of 2018 season.

    I had already adjusted it to what I think is correct. There was some confusion in the McNiece thread, I think perhaps they had misreported it?

    Sam Draper's thread title is 2019. I think that is correct.
