I know I said this months ago but i'm still waiting for someone to explain to me:
1) How a ongoing small list reduction makes a difference when the AFL have a revenue problem now of a scale many many times what it would save? (If they still have revenue problems in 2022 the league is stuffed, as it won't be able to support the debts it is incurring now to keep the game afloat. What they actually need is for the players to agree to take a large enough temporary haircut to make a difference to their ability to keep the AFL solvent next year.)
2) How it is in the PA's interest compromise at all on anything permanent?
The AFL has pgot a line of credit of $600 million
They have used some of that to get through this season . Poor financial clubs will need major dollars to survive so the AFL must enforce list cuts , management cuts and training dept cuts .Player payments is the big one and that is going to need very hard to get done. Its going to be a very interesting off season

Probably not the place for this but as a general comment, a bit of finacial pressure might force a melbourne club ot two to move. IMHO either North or Hawks should be a Tassie team. And we would be a better competition if at least one other Vic team was forced to move elsewhere permanently.

Young, Henry and Frederick are all contracted to 2023. Valente is 2022. You are missing Mundy from your list. And North isn't with us anymore.

Stephen Hill is 2021 as well.

Worth putting an asterisk next to Hughes and Watson as well as it’s their third year on the rookie list so we’ll need to upgrade them to keep them.

Pick 5 to be delisted or moved to rookie list.
Only if Stephen Hill finally proves his fitness does he stay on the list but Id say that's unlikely. After today I'd delist from the main list Duman, Crowden, Colyer, Giro and Conca. Conca has a clause in his contract for anther year but if he is not in the team he might think his time has gone past him and start a coaching career. I'd also delist and then rookie Blakely as he is contrated to create another list spot. Id then promote Hughes. If we can place Walker onto the rookie as a NGA then Id do that too. Last year contracted players were allowed to be moved to the rookie. That would give us seven vacancies. Id also not re-rookie Watson, Banfield and would re-rookie Bewley and Shultz with Treacy, Walker and Blakely.

We then use the midseason draft to add quality players between the ages of 22-25. There are that many better players running around at state level then some of the players playing for us its time to take advantage of the mid season draft. I watched the state game on youtube before todays game. The difference in the ball use of some of the state league players is ridiculous. Luke Partington would dominate Acres or Aish with his hard running for example.
