I know all of that but I mean what's the go for 2022?
Goldsack's now officially retired (again) and is a full-time coach. It was part of the loophole for managing the off-field soft cap (similar to Tom Lynch) where he was rookie listed last year to keep his wage out of the soft cap. Now that Voss and Schofield have moved on, there's room in the off-field cap

Best 22 in a regular top 4 team, not a star but hardly surprising to be on an AFL list, he's clearly at the standard.
Plenty of bog average players play above themselves/have their weaknesses papered over by playing in a good team with a strong supporting cast around them.

Kolo is OK. Up to the mark, but very replaceable and would not to be surprised to see him off the Geelong list in a couple of years.

Zach Guthrie.

rabbit in headlights every time I watch him play
Didn't watch the last time he played against your mob in round 20? Was best on ground that day. He's not great but he improved enough this year to show he can play AFL quality football and there are far worse listed players out there.

Not only is Castagna on a list, but he's a triple premiership player, which would have somebody who doesn't know any better thinking he's one of the all time greats. The absolute poster boy for the 'you can't use premierships when comparing the merits of individual players' argument.

Dude very almost won a Norm Smith as well.

Says something how bad GWS were that day.

Richmond's most below average player for me.
