NUFC, YES.
Very surprised Dumont hasn't found a home somewhere yet. There would be hundreds of worse players than him still on AFL lists.
Yeah, there’d have to be question marks on the long-term durability of his calf, surely. It’s one thing for North to cut him — which was a surprise in itself — but for no-one else to bite suggests there’s something that’s holding suitors back.

Either North Melbourne have just proven GC are the biggest ******* rabble in the history of the sport or this is some 4D Chess sh*t to get rid of a medium contact that North fell for. Probably a bit of both.

Reckon we could get Stewie and the list management team to delist Rowell, Lukoscious and Rankine?

I'm scratching my head as to why North of all clubs would want a 30yo inside midfielder with the host of quality young mids they've got that they should be pumping game time into.

As for GC i'm not sure its a bad thing either. Maybe some slight short term pain but they've got plenty of quality young midfield cover themselves.

I hope we do not pick up any more free agents as there should be enough potential gems at the end of the draft to go on to our rookie list (2 or 3 new ones).

Quality youth could be the clubs nickname. Every year it ensures they start ok, but by round 5 or 6 the youth is tiring and they are easy beats for the rest of the season. They need some older bodies to get their youth lasting a season, so they get some that don't feel so beat up and downtrodden that they want out, repeating the cycle (which they are already up to cycle 5 or 6 of this).

The older body of Greenwood didnt help them much either.
