    #42 isn't 'available' at Collingwood, it's retired.

    I believe this number has been retired, atleast for now, so I don't think we'll see anyone in it for a while.

    I would like to eventually add all the previous owners of each number so if you know it, please write it down here and it can be used as a database

    I'll treat it like #37 at the Swans, it's unofficially retired so it's an active number to be used

    Hamish McIntosh was traded to Geelong at 2012's end.

    Daniel Currie wore the No. 1 guernsey for Norf from 2013-15.

    I think this year should be long enough.
    They can just quietly hand the number to a new kid and let him start his career in it.

    It's been long enough they don't need to make a big deal out of it and I'm a believer these things need to be done and moved on with otherwise you almost make it so the number can never be used again.

    That said if the Pies gave out #42 I wouldn't think there would be a backlash, after all, a lot of fans now wouldn't know the history or the story as it was a different generation.

    hopefully #2 ans #7 are free for West Coast. The early numbers tend to be popular numbers at WCE so 3 within in the 10 ten is huge.
