    I was disappointed to see Gore go - I wonder what happened? He had an excellent first year in the VFL and was on the cusp of senior selection when we traded him out. I'd have him back as a rookie.

    As for Troy, surely once you've burned the talent bridge twice, it's unlikely you'll get a second home.

    I can't imagine any club announcing delistings at the b&f. Would be a shocking thing to do.

    Seriously, what are these people smoking? Campaigner screws us over and sows disharmony in the playing group, but we should invite them to the b&f. We announce delistings after the b&f, but we should have done it at the b&f.

    My god we're a nasty footy club. :rolleyes:

    Great pickup Dean as part of a trade with the best player in the competition at that time. Pat your backs Crows.....well done.

    As for Menzel....could not fit into our forward line.

    I have not-so-fond memories of going to my ex's birthday party and I think that might be similar.

    Not sure what happened with Gore but he really didn't play well in the SANFL. We have top up players who put in better performances.

    Both of their careers are done. Neither fired a shot here.

    Just never fired a shot here unfortunately. A sliding doors moment for Gore really seeing his first season was quite decent for Geelong (as you say, was close to selection). Stays and it's quite likely he has some AFL games to his name.

    Ah well, such is life.

    So would that be it for delistings? Thommo retired, Lever, Cameron traded, Gore, Menzel delisted. 5 roster spots to fill? Do we have rookies that need to be upgraded?

    Yeah, geez, not sure about delisting Menzel - unless there's even more to it than meets the eye. Gore's pretty straightforward.

    I've always found him a tad annoying to be honest.

    There'll probably be more after the trade period.

    Where does that leave Deer, O'Brien, Wigg, Beech and Ellis-Yolman?

    I think there was a point at his first year at the club where he performed quite well but ever since he really has struggled at SANFL level. He's anonymous at that level at best.

    I'm sorrt for Troy but I like it as a move from the club. I think it shows we're not going to blindly persist with unfulfilled talent and/or we are making room for some incoming.

    Thinking the same. I would expect the AFC would be hoping they can bring in 1-2 players during the trade period. If we brought in another 2 how many could we then cut?

    I'd expect to see Wigg, Beech and CEY delisted.

    Not sure about Dear.

    O'Brien has signed an extension.

    I'm pretty sure Greenwood & Keath are upgraded for next year which means its 2 in & 3 out so far plus Lever & possibly Cameron.

    I reckon Dear & one of Cheney or Wigg will also get the chop.

    Hunter will probably be cut from the rookie list as well.

    I reckon the crows will draft up to 5 players this year with possible picks being 10, 16, 18 27 & 34 unless they can get Gibbs from Carlton.

    I'm surprised that we delisted Menzel after him playing 4 games last year. I thought he was worth persisting with, especially with another preseason under the belt. At least we're being a bit ruthless these days, should delist Otten as well. But we won't.

    Don't forget Shaw will be officially retired. Would be surprised if many of CEY, Hunter, Wigg, Cheney and Dear are around next year.

    CEY would be stiff imo. Just coming off a knee reco & showed some real form up to that time. I reckon he will be offered another year. to see how he goes.

    Menzel call was a bit harsh, especially if Cameron is on the way out. They must see Knight, Gallucci and Milera ahead of him already.

    Dude regardless of the knee, CEY has been given enough chances. His disposal is a liability at AFL level. If he gets another deal, it will be a 1 year dead man walking contract and he would likely be used as depth only.
