Going to be some tough decisions to be made with the next round of delistings.
Could be any or all of Mackay, Davis, Seedsman, Strachan, Poholke, Gallucci, Crocker, Frampton.

Not surprising, Knight never took the next steps forward after 2017, Wilson IMO was always a depth/SANFL player for us and Taylor just got unlucky when COVID-19 hit and now likely reduction in list sizes. Thank you and all the best to the boys.

Thanks for the service boys. All the best.

My favourite Knight moment.

He was hung out to dry by the club too.

That incident was symbolic of the killer edge that 2017 Adelaide were lacking versus 1997 Adelaide. Compare with the equivalent incident in 1997 of Ormond-Allen having his jaw broken behind play (which also happened in round 18 coincidentally.)

The 1997 Crows brought the incident to the tribunal's attention themselves, because they would not stand for that thuggery. Where the 2017 Crows did absolutely nothing about their players being visibly eye-gouged.

If we suggested Joel Selwood eye gouged another player, we would have received draft sanctions again

Would love to see Knight get a second life at another club like Ricky Henderson did, but not sure if a team would take a look at him.
I reckon if he can have a good season in the SANFL next year and (hopefully) show his body can hold up then he could possibly find his way back onto an AFL list, although if they shrink much that won't help him. I guess he might not even want it any more.

I'd forgotten that Wilson was on the list, tbh. Never really got a run at it, too many similar players in front of him. Makes you wonder why we drafted him in the first place - didn't seem to be a good fit. I guess it's easy to say that in hindsight.

Go well Boogie. I've got a real soft spot for the SA country lads who pull on the tri-colours.

Really hoped to see more of him

I think there is very little chance that Seedsman or Frampton will be delisted. The others would have good reason to be worried though.

Why was Seeds not playing for the last few round of the season? I think he's very likely to get cut.
Seeds is contracted for 2021 and Billy unil end of 2022 they wont be delisted

Seed has definitely carried an injury this year and the only way I see him leaving is through a trade for a late pick and the new club would agree to pick up his 2021 salary

My guess is both players will be on our list in 2021

I hope you're right, as I rate Seeds. It's unusual that he wouldn't appear on our injury list for the last month, if that is the reason he wasn't playing.

With Gibbs, Atkins, BCrouch? and yesterday's delistings that makes 6. Expecting around another 6 more to be moved on. Feel it may be Strachan(delisted), Poholke(delisted), Gallucci(traded/delisted), Crocker(delisted) plus another couple of trades.

Has the Gooch to St Kilda rumor pretty much died now?

Then dont worry about it. If you have read all the posts and cant tell the ones I referring too then just ignore my comment.
Or maybe just quote the posts you have an issue with instead of doing your "wont somebody think of the children" routine. It's tiresome.

Purely to fill a hole in our list demographic and to provide a bigger body.
