This article says Long re-signed for a year but I can't find anything else...

http://www.afl.com.au/news/2018-10-29/who-doesnt-have-a-deal-ahead-of-contract-deadline-day




Unsigned: Mark Baguley, Matt Dea, Ben McNiece

Jake Long has re-signed to remain at the club for another year. Veteran ruckman Matthew Leuenberger retired last weekdespite having a one-year offer to play on, leaving promising young big man Sam Draper as Tom Bellchambers' chief back-up. Baguley is set to be delisted and redrafted as a rookie, while rookie-listed midfielder Trent Mynott has locked in his spot for 2019. Dea and McNiece will find out either way this week.

McNiece staying

Just Dea from the main list with no decision now.
Yep, and Baguley noticeably absent from the bottom of that article.

The Club has now made the following changes to its list:

Delisted – Brendon Goddard, Jackson Merrett and Josh Green

Traded – Travis Colyer (Fremantle)

Recruited – Dylan Shiel
:think: Not sure why the league website would be getting info and releasing it before the club does, like we haven't had a member email about it either. I think the actual list lodgement is two days away – the league doesn't even need to be told until then.

So an early look next year we have:

Aaron Francis - 2/3 years
Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti - 3 years
Ben McNiece - 1 year/delist
BZT - 2 years
Darcy Parish - 2/3 years (wouldn't be surprised if he gets squeezed out though, cap room may be tight)
David Myers - 1 year/retire
Dylan Clarke - 1 year/delist
Jake Long - 1 year/delist
Jordan Houlahan - 1 year/delist
Luke Lavender - 1 year
Mark Baguley - retire?
Mason Redman - 2/3 years
Matt Guelfi - 1/2 years
Michael Hartley - 1 year
Mitchell Brown - 1 year
Patrick Ambrose - 1 year
Sam Draper - 3 years
Trent Mynott - 1/2 years

So we'll have up to 21 OOC at the start of next year. The priorities for me would be Francis, Walla, BZT, Parish, Redman and Draper.

Hi all,

As you might've seen over on the DTFA we have a new resource - an auto-updating, zero-maintenance spreadsheet of player stats and contract data.

The main pitfall of this set of resources is that it draws its information from footywire - if they have errors, so will this.

Below is the club-specific version for the Dons :)

First tab has contract length and free agency status, then you have career games, age and height data in separate tabs with graphical displays, plus a player data table in the last tab.

If you're on a mobile browser you'll need to scroll around to see everything properly, as it's best viewed on desktop.


Duckworth I'm going to also embed it in the OP, but given the likelihood of errors in footywire's contract expiry dates particularly, if you can keep your list up to date as well that would probably be better than relying on footywire for that :)
