Frampton kicks 9 goals in 2 weeks at SANFL level, then 3 in a game at AFL level then goes back and kicks 10 in 2 weeks at SANFL level again.

If I see a 22 year old doing this, the last word I'd think of is "delist".
It would speak to a leadership team that can't manage different personalities and are putting themselves and their egos before the good of the team.

P.s. happy for a model to move this discussion so we can celebrate this brilliant news.

If Frampton is delisted it will be because he doesn’t have the right temperament for the trade, which adversely affects him at AFL level where a key forward doesn’t get as many clean looks as SANFL level.

He’s hot headed and you can’t build your team around a player like that. Personally I’d delist him with the view to picking him up as a rookie.

As for Marshall and Ladhams, it was never in doubt. Unlike supporters, players know exactly where they stand and why they aren’t getting games. This team will make room for players who are performing.

I would play Frampton over Dixon at this stage.

You need to watch more SANFL games bud. Hayes is an absolute gun. They will be an awesome combo soon enough
Hayes is a Ruckman, Frampton the FF.

Long term, think Ladhams and Hayes in place of Ryder and Lycett.

Frampton to replace Dixon, then add in Marshall up forward.

Gives us two specialist tall forwards and the resting ruck up forward, as we had against Essendon.

He’s been here since 2014 and the coach clearly doesn’t rate him for some reason, so the odds of him staying on the list aren’t flash.

Frampton has had a better year than Hayes (Hayes will be better long term).

But the main point should be that they are different players and we can easily have both on the list.

Hayes has been a fwd/ruck this year due to his injury and will split time between that and ruck.

Frampton is a KPF in the Dixon mould that should only ruck in emergencies.

How is Hayes better ?
How?

He's already a better ruck than Billy by all accounts. Forward craft again I'll defer to SANFL watchers but I think Billy has a few years development on him at this point (even allowing for our much maligned "system") and Sam is just back from major LTI.

I think this double-signing means we hold only one of Ryder or Billy for next year, and on balance I think that one should be Billy.

There's no one you could confidently say could step in for Dixon the way Ladhams and Ryder could step in for Lycett. But from his SANFL performances there is still definitely still potential upside in Billy. That means at worst there's a smidge of trade value in him *next* year, when there probably won't for Ryder.

So if there's a smidge of trade value in Ryder *this* year, from a club desperate for a purely great tap ruck, we should probably take it.

Great news!

"YOUNG talls Peter Ladhams and Todd Marshall have re-committed to the Port Adelaide Football Club with each signing a contract extension to remain with the club until the end of 2022."

Just what every port fan wants to here.
Now with Ladams signing on Ryder is definitely gone.
