Ben was a rookie pick. I doubt it would come as a shock if he didn't make it.

A little surprising based on reports during the year, he wasn't given more time tho.

The Finbar selection was always very strange to me.
Ben wasn't a rookie, picked up in the national draft. Moreso because father and son have exited the club in less than 12 months, wouldn't surprise me to see Jack leave also.

If that is his attitude which I doubt I hope the door doesn't hit him on the way out.

This club needs to stop putting players names before the club brand.

You wouldn't be even a little upset if your dad and brother got let go from your place of work within 12 months?
I wouldn't give my own brother a letter of recommendation, the lazy sod.

If Ben has been let go because he's not up to it or not working hard enough, I'm tipping Jack will understand, and will probably have seen the signs over the last two years. They're a football family and know how hard it is to get drafted let alone carve out a long career.

These were all obvious decisions. You would hope that Jack is professional enough to understand that his brother was not a sure thing to stay on the list.
I would expect the remainder of the list remain until either the 2021 list sizes are announced and/or trade week is completed.

Thanks guys for your time in the Navy Blue.

Strongly believe BSOS has the talent to make it. Hopefully he works at it and makes it back onto an AFL list.

I'm concerned at our clubs ability to develop young talent though.

BSOS, Dow, LOB, SPS, Stocker & Kennedy has regressed etc.

Next Silvagni might think twice about nominating for father son.

Reduced lists - decision to keep Betts on another year, for questionable long term gain on field, would be pissing off any of these younger guys.
Easier to keep him in the salary cap than under the soft cap next year from what I've read.
