    Forgot Kent. Has to be tradebait, but his value has diminished significantly on the back of injuries and regression. If we somehow manage to offload Kent, it may give Kennedy a reprieve as a rookie, but unfortunately I don't see how that happens considering Goody is refusing to pick him despite unreal VFL form. Is he a chance for the JJ Liston Trophy?

    Wouldn't trade Kent, his value is as low as it'll ever be.

    Would be lower next year if he is OOC and hasn't been anywhere near our 22 for most of 2018...

    The difference between a 3rd and 4th round pick is minimal, we're better off backing him in to become a good player next year.

    Such a liberating feeling to see a yearly list of out of contract players and not give a shit about any of them

    Vince shouldn't be offered another contract. His done.

    Not sure about Kent. Hopefully he can break through the injury barrier next year and also alleviate some form issues. 2016 was a good year for him, I think our side is better with him in it and in form.

    Kennedy obviously showed quite a bit last year, and his VFL form suggests he is going well, but I think with Kent fit and Garlett our no.1 small forward, he won't get a look in.

    Garland - will retire
    Trengove - will retire
    Vince - Delist
    Watts - trade
    Vandenberg - really hope he comes on but can't see it happening with all these injuries he has had

    In hindsight we should have kept vandenBerg on the rookie list

    It seems like the following senior listed players will be going at the end of this year;

    Trenners
    Kennedy
    Hulett

    It sounds like Spencer and Frost might both be looking at other options, Col Garland could retire and Lamumba is thankfully gone already.

    With Mitch White likely to join them on the way out from the rookie list, and Filipovic potentially in the line of sights as well, I am not sure how many more list changes we would want to make in one year.

    Linked to Lever, and maybe we can pull something else out of the hat, but I doubt we want to be going to the draft looking to take 6-7 new kids. May as well keep some blokes for depth for another year, going to be more use if we have injuries than an 18 year old rookie. Hurts me to say it after this season but we probably need to give Vince another year purely as depth rather than taking one extra kid.

    I'd be surprised if we cut Vince, he'll probably just get a one year deal on minimum wage.

    Not sure why we'd delist a first year ruck prospect in Filivopic.

    Agree with the sentiment though.

    Yeh true, I forgot that this was Filipovic's first year. Probably not a lot of point drafting an 18 year old ruckman in the first place if you are only going to give them one year, so we should give him a little longer.

    I would presume that only one of he & King survives for next season, though with Spencil potentially on the way out I may well be wrong...

    I agree mate and so he should.
    Whilst I think he's obviously well past his best, he is well worth keeping for the sake of depth.
    Performed some pretty reasonable defensive roles this year and is a better option than some others.

    Hope so mate!!
    Only one that worries me a little bit is probably Tmac.
    I remember he weighed up for a while last time before signing and obviously only extended by 2 years so he was coming OOC when he becomes a free agent.
    I wouldn't be surprised if he holds out a bit longer and tests the waters. Particularly now that he's shown he can play forward well.

    ANB should be in 2019...

    I would love to see some movement before the start of next season on Trac, OMac, TMac, Braysh, Jetta & Gawn.

    Would offer Trac 5 years at least.

    All staying at Melbourne, including Garland.

    While I'm not a big Garland fan, he is probably in our best 22. If we get Lever, we can send Tom down forward more often.

    EDIT: also not an OMac fan.

    You know this or is it just hope?
    Garland is not best 22.
