Perhaps Cedric Cox for instance doesn't want to wait until the 6th year of his career to get a consistent game.You mean the young guys who will be in the team within 2-3 years as our older players start to drop out and retire? I think they'll pass on those speaking engagements.
I don't know when some of these guys are out of contract but maybe at the end of their contract they'd be willing to move for higher salary - just like Ah Chee did, and in addition higher chance of regular senior action.
I'm sure the Lions will want to hold onto them all - but maybe it's the player that decides to move.
I mean your key position players
Hipwood, Mcstay, Andrews, Gardner, Mcinerny, Adams - the oldest is what 26? Most around 22-24
Mcfadyen, Ballenden will have to improve to the point of overtaking them to get a game (can definitely see this happening) - unless they want to wait 4-5 years till they retire.
Walker would be alright as back up for the defence if Thompson gets injured again or Collins takes a while to come back from the stress fracture.Take your pick from the guys who have been delisted.
We've had a discussion on our board about Keays - some in favour - most not.
Bastinac pretty much no.
