Just Hopper and Davis to go of the most important signatures; Flynn too, although with Briggs there it's not as critical.

Reckon Riccardi will head back to Victoria in the belief he'll get more opportunity there, and Hutchesson and Shipley will be this year's delistings.

A small chance of a surprise with Davis IMHO, and an even smaller chance from Hopper.

Flynn would be one of my top priorities the tandem of Briggs and Flynn have played so well together so far and it would be great to see them play and grow together for a long time

Shipley could be moved to the rookie list, unlikely but another option is he is looked at for a list spot in the pre season period if needed or if he loves the club play EAFL for the club

normally injured players re-sign as they haven't had a chance to impress a suitor as much as they would like. I would expect him to stay.

Around the league there isn't too much demand for young rucks... M Chol at the tigers is quality but can't get a gig and is looking elsewhere with limited success. No denying the talent, but the demand isn't that high... so i expect flynn is just a matter of time.

Mummy leaving too helps

For someone who allegedly just wanted to be with family, Show Me The Money isn't portraying Bobby in a great light by demanding four years vs three years on contracts with preferred clubs, etc.

Edit: Although Colin Young just established Essendon as a premiership candidate in the next five years somehow and should've offered more so Bobby's not coming off the absolute worst. :D

Yeah there is a quote there about wanting to go and play in the big time which contradicts the whole family argument

I don’t mind if you want to play in the big games at the G. Just say that

Interesting re Angwin. He hasn’t shown anything yet
With Angwin he has a December birthday, outside player and was very light so I think 2 years development before a debut is about right for him

This doesnt rule him out as being a bust but hopefully he has an injury free year to help with his development and keeps his speed as he could help bring back the orange tsunami

Angwin has an elite endurance base, showing it off with his remarkable 6:11 two-kilometre time trial, which was among the top five fastest recorded time at the AFL Draft Combines across the country. Adding in his three-second 20-metre sprint and 80cm running vertical leap, Angwin has enough athleticism to suggest that area will not hold him back in the future.

Agree. If we push all of the kids straight into first grade, we'll be forever turning over the team. If they have clear talent and skills that we need (Green, Callaghan) then absolutely get them in early, but if they need some time to develop (Cumming, Idun, Stone, Angwin) then provided they don't believe they'll get a better shot elsewhere, it means a better rounded player when they do make it to first grade.

That’s not what I’m contesting. I’m saying that Angwin has shown no development in the twos. Idun etc all showed strong development in their first two years. Angwin… none. I’ve watched all of their vfl games that have been streamed… you barely notice he’s on the field.

If Himmelberg is our of contract I could see a number of clubs interested.
I don't think their is a team in the AFL he doesn't make at the moment.

Contracted until '23 but as we all know that doesn't always mean much, that said is properly one of the most committed guys to the club
