Listening to Yes/No Richo on 3AW's 'Sports Today' podcast just now and it was put to Richo.

Not actual quotes, but close enough...

  • Gerald: "Rance playing in junior levels annoys you?"
  • Richo: "Yes."
  • Gerald: "Rance being picked up by Geelong at the mid-season draft would annoy you?"
  • Richo: "Yes! I've heard that too."

Further discussion followed
  • it is likely possible in terms of AFL rules, but we can't say for sure without more calls.
  • Gerard Healy received an SMS saying it is likely, filling a slot made available by Harry Taylor, in June.
  • Scoop says Rance might not be permitted to join the cats as he only dropped off the RFC last year, there is some rule about time between being on a list to be eligible for mid-season.

TL/DR - unsubstantiated rumour that Rance is joining cats in 2021 mid season draft.

There's no way you should be allowed to retire and then join another team in the midseason draft. That would be bullshit.

This just keeps coming up...

Why would Rance leave Richmond, whom he apparently has no issue with, then play somewhere else?

This has to be b/s...
Because he likely had an issue.

You don't walk away suddenly from a big $ contract when rehab is largely done and at the same time as your ex-wife is threatening to clean you out unless something has gone awry.

*if* Rance finds his way to Geelong mid-season, the rumour-mill regarding his initial departure will go bezerk

Certainly I would start questioning the official narrative of happy-families & start to think something went seriously south

But its all conjecture at this stage ...
