no delist davis his contract is peanuts pay out
We still have to make more room on our list ,to bring in players we want to draft etc ,and paying out Davis retiring Mackay and hopefully getting nothing trades for Hartigan < Kelly and Seedsman and delisting those left with no contracts seems very important.

Ok there seems to be some misconception regarding his speed/agility.

Defensively it's fine, very reliable shut down defender on either the resting midfielder (danger, martin etc) or on key forwards like (darling, kennedy, riewoldt etc).

By loss of speed you need to put things into perspective. Back in his junior years, he was a stronger and faster Lachie Whitfield with excellent kicking skills. He was able to break lines in defence and distribute it precisely. By loss of speed, I mean that it's no longer at that level, and that one of his biggest weapons was taken away from him. Is it still decent/competent? Sure it is.
if hes so great you would want to keep him.

Matt was easily one of the most talented, skilled (beautiful long kick, great hands and excellent one on one), physically suited and committed juniors to come through the Glenelg system in the AFL era. Injuries curtailed what would have been an elite (read All Australian) career.

Just got delisted by the Pies with Tim Broomhead.
Can sign him as a DFA if we’re interested, can see why we’d be given he’s been elite when he has played and worth a punt if our HP team can get his body right.

I'd take a punt as a rookie. Considering the Keays experiment worked well, wouldn't hurt to give it another shot with Shaz, even if he is a bit older than Keays was (but more proven at the top level)

I'd rather get games into our young defenders who aren't perennially injured.
