    me too, it was more a comment on how odd our form has been with that sort of thing.

    so many wasted games handed out at this footy club.

    I agree, which makes me wonder if they've got any other Cat B irons in the fire because they ought to be making the most of that free hit at every opportunity.

    Cheney surely ends up at another club rather than delisted? He fell out of our best 22 due to injury and his replacement improved far more than anyone would expect. Still more than capable at AFL level you'd suspect.

    Two of our worst recruitments in recent times. Usually our list managers have such a good hit rate but the last few years just haven't been good... bit worrying.

    Of course, the type of player we've missed most this year (apart from a CHF, but every side could do with one more of those bar GWS) is a clean-hands-in-and-under type.

    We played two players selected in this year's rookie draft this year, for goodness' sakes. Ah well.

    Potentially, but that would make club number 4 correct? Bit of an outlier. I actually think he will be given another year here though.

    Screw it! Should have waited till they were 32 and still waiting to be selected in the 1sts.

    I thought the consensus from those who watched SANFL that Deer was not going to make it?

    Deer - good, I was hoping we would see more of him before we cut him.

    Not everyone is a star in the afl. Gave it a crack and best wishes.

    We have to take 3? picks to the draft. 1-2 incoming trades, 2 rookie upgrades, so we need 6-7 vacancies. Plus we are already one short on the senior list? So maybe 1-2 minimum yet to come.

    I'll always have fond memories of Menzel's game against Gold Coast this year when he got 4 (count 'em) possessions for the match, which was 3 more than Talia who went off injured in the first minute.

    About the best CEY can hope for at this point is a spot on the rookie list, I reckon.

    Nothing wrong with rookie pick players ;)

    Still though, Gore just seemed like a player that did everything right but just didn't have the tools to separate himself from the pack, didn't help we started prioritising speed as well.

    Haha, totally, but let's face it, none of Danger, Dusty, Lynch, Kelly, Fyfe or Rance came up off the rookie list...

    Still though, you don't need 22 stars. If you can get a good solid role player on the cheap salary wise, it's pretty good.

    They roll up to their lockers and see that "- 2017" has been added to their row.

    So... Was Menzel actually contracted for next year and got the chop anyway? Or was he out of contract?

    I suspect you might be surprised.
