Following on from Jake Niall’s most recent article in Theage, one of the few journos I rate highly, MK and Simmo are the 2 veterans that should retire at this season‘s end. Not much need to outline reasons why; i.e main reason in respect of each is fairly self-evident.

Betts still fills a void, has been able to get out there most weeks and is still dangerous; despite Niall suggesting otherwise.

There is no value letting Murphy play again this season, he is not contributing enough and is preventing a young kid having a chance to push for a spot on the list for next season. Especially important if list size is reduced.

Simpson should be tapped on the shoulder and finish up this year. If we let him play another year it will hurt the club, regardless of list size.

Kreuzer can be kept as insurance, TDK needs to be our first choice from now on, until he tires or gets injured. We cannot play rucks who cannot forward so Pitto goes out while TDK is fit and available.

Ed gets one more year, no guarantees about senior games, may force his way into the side anyhow.

Casboult has earned another year, as insurance for Harry, Brackets and Charlie, if he wants to play on.

Eddie is finished as a force, anything more than a cameo is a bonus. Keep as a coach or mentor, starting to lose his edge as a player. Had a great career.

It is time for the next generation to take control of this team and be responsible for the results, the players listed above have shown they are not up to the task.

Couldn't agree more Jabba

Of the 28+ I would only keep Jones, Ed and Levi, the rest need to retire or moved on
Im 50/50 on Betts, as I reckon he can play 10-15 decent AFL games next year while he adjusts to his post playing career off field for us

Murphy is actually done, looks good against poor pressure sides but when the heats on....

Simmo has boomer Harvey syndrome......not playing bad for a guy in his mid 30s but the club needs to develop guys in his spot

No player is bigger than the club. Players should only be handed contracts based on their form, consistency, injuries and obviously the financials. These contract decisions should favour what’s best for the list and future of the club.

This goes for all players, no matter how long they’ve been there.

On form alone, the club would be professionally inept in their duty if they offer Murphy another season. As stated by many observers what does he offer that would warrant a 1 year contract?

Im sure many members couldn’t give a rats arse if he is close to 300 games. All I care about is our next premiership and call me ruthless, a player who serves us well in the past should not be given contracts because of the fact. He has been financially remunerated for his services and no longer can consistently provide the level required at senior level to warrant another contract.

I would also thanks Simpson, Betts and Kruez for their services and let them retire.

Time to move forward.

That's ridiculous if true. Why hold back the development of a kid and hurt our chances of winning games just so we can nurse Murphy to 300?

They gonna nurse Simmo to break the club record while they're at it?

If that's really what they're planning then this club is not going to see success any time soon.

Hard decisions have to be made. Ed and Jones the only ones really deserving of going on. Levi only because we need some form of back up Harry and Charlie as well as ruck support for TDK.

Really don't rate Pittonet at all. He'd be goneski if it were up to me.

Another unanswered 5+ goal run by the opposition. The blowtorch should be just about on Teague's backside by now.
We can't stop chopping and changing coaches every 2 or 3 years Sir. Anyhow as we have seen with Radelaide and Matty Nicks, the cupboard of quality potential senior coaches in waiting is pretty much as bare as Mother Hubbard's.

Teague will be fine, but yeah I feel your frustration and disappointment over yesterday's schisen second half.

I feel Newman was a big loss to our back 6 this year. A guy that averaged midfielder numbers and went at 75%by foot, which is elite. And not those bullshit 20 metre backward kicks, he penetrated opposition presses

When fit, he will play
Bingo. Flabbergasted by some posters suggesting he will be on the chopping/trade block at the end of the season.

Don't you just hate those supporters who make irrational heat of the moment calls to trade much required and valuable players ? (Hope I never become like that 🤡🤡🤡😳😳😳

True that. Still, not good signs that nearly every 2nd week the opposition gets a run on and our boys go to sleep.

If I had a choice, now, between Robbo (as in Mitch) and Murph; I'd select the former in a heart beat without so much as a second thought. Amazing how things change with time.

I just read a silly article suggesting that it may be politically inappropriate to keep referring to the main bedroom in a typical Aussie home as the “master bedroom” In response, I’ve resolved to doing, or saying, something politically incorrect; in support of political incorrectness. On that basis; I predict we’re going to do SFA of any significance during this years trade/draft period, or if we do land someone worthwhile, we’re going to get our backsides sanded back to brittle bone.

He better be as good at dealing picks and players to other clubs as he is at selling escalating memberships to members.

What was it your 'trust' game said; while we have more ways of communicating, it seems to give us more misscommunication than anything else?
