How much cap space will we have when we sack Caddy, D. Rioli, RCD, Egg, Naish, Chol, Garthwaite and Stack at the end of the season?

Full kudos to Hardwick and his match committee on the changes and having the balls to go through with them.
Eggmolesse-Smith was atrocious last week, Caddy has been poor and Rioli long overdue for a departure from the side.
Rapt to see Ross back in and hoping he gets a good crack at it, and love the two debutantes, giving the side that fresh feel we had at the start of 2017 when we kicked this golden era off.

No one is ending his career, just saying he hasn't lived up to expectations - which happens when some on draft night on here were throwing around comparisons to Bontempelli.
Mind you, you were slow on the uptake and making excuses doe Corey Ellis for four years and could see what no one else saw in him, whatever that was.
The Silky Butterfly says hi ;)
Oh the benefit of history .
Club plays a few borderline players early in the season who have the runs on the board as a means of giving them first crack before debuting a couple that will be improved by the taste and a insight of how much they need to improve before turning to blokes who can take them to glory .
CCJ , RCD , two phones and stack will all be important players and potentially in the side or heavily vying for spot by seasons end .

Mate if you dont want to believe what Jack Riewoldt is telling you about something that happened 3 years ago - then go join Q'Anon and meet the family

If players were playing injured like you are saying, they would have just said it by now. No reason to hide it. They didn't hide Dusty's injury issue - doubt they are telling us 3 year furphys about Jayden Short having a calf strain or some sh*t. Way easier to lean on injuries for a historically bad loss than actually admit fault. Found Jacks response to be one of the rare times we actually got a genuine and insightful response from a afl sportsman about something the fans truely want to know about
Still holding back imo

I'll offer you 5-1 on at least two not being there next season, though it should be 7/4.

Picketts been okay

Aarts should be dropped. We must have no small forward depth. Shame really, we were so good before in this area
Three solutions:

Add another midfielder, Bolton/Edwards spend more time forward, Aarts gets dropped.

Add another half back, Baker moves forward, Aarts gets dropped.

Get Stack fit, play him forward, drop Aarts.

Pickett does the occasional great thing but generally can’t hit the side of a barn by foot. I’d be hoping one of the young guys goes past him soon. At least Aarts regularly hits the scoreboard.

I think Marlion will end up one day retired, with 4 flags to his name - and no one still will know if he is actually good or not.

Dude is an enigma
