I have a feeling Keays might be the unlucky man out. Been on the list for a while, great NEAFL player, never seems to quite grasp a spot at senior level in an area where we're relatively set now.
Might be a rookie list candidate . He seems to be the king of guy who’s happy enough staying in Brisbane and taking his chances. He seems to genuinely love the club.

Sadly, more than one player is going to have to cop an unlucky delisting this year.

My guess it’s either Keays or C.Lyons to the rookie list and the other delisted.

My guess is Nick Robertson becomes a delisted free agent and either signs with GWS or either of the WA clubs.

Bit easier to delist a player you know has a deal lined up.

The main three players I would like to see kept are Christensen, Skinner and Lester.

I think the Keays decision is more vs bundy who's experience may be the goals that get us more success next year vs Keays whose presence around the fwd line is likely to be consistently better for a few more years yet if I had the call to make. The way Lyons Zorko Neale will all push forward Keays is my pick over bundy longer term

I don’t rate Keays up forward at AFL level.

What's going on with our de-listings? I am not overly enthused about how we are handling this. So many loyal and popular players being left in the dark to then find out from them in an Intagram post? No way we would have done it like this last year.

Something has been mismanaged somewhere because there is no announcement from the club at all
Not sure I agree with that. Players are notified before an official announcement by the club in any case so no real surprise when if a player comes out publicly first before the club does.

Not sure how to tag someone but if Robbo18 reads this please thank Nick from me. It's been tough as a lions fan in recent years but players like him giving his all every minute makes the tough years worth while.

Best of luck Nick. Hope you get picked up.
Robbo18!

The players aren’t in the dark, they would have known prior to the trade period what was going to happen. As supporters we should be the last ones to know what’s happening.

Robbo18! I’m shattered for Nick. He bleeds for the boys and his selflessness/courage on the footy field is something I’ve pointed out as great examples to my son plenty of times. Thanks for your efforts Nick, hopefully you get picked up as a DFA! PS. Buddy has never recovered from your hit and the lads always walked taller whenever you were in the team!!!
