I'll go with the following delistings:

Senior list:
Lewis (Ret)
Stretch
JKH (Re-rookie)
Garlett
J Wagner (Re-rookie)

Rookie list:
Keilty
Maynard
Walker
Q4 would u re-rookie JKH & J Wagner. JKH has had 7 years to prove he is a good VFL player, but not an AFL one. He always dishes the ball off like it's a hot potato. Wags is so vanilla & makes poor decisions. Btw Maynard has retired. I'd expect Walker will to unless the medical report is positive.

Surely not a coincidence that the same week Tempe Tiger said he wanted him around next season, Maynard announces his retirement. It's the Spencil all over again!
I really hope we keep all of our assistant coaches next year, particularly Craig Jennings. And I hope we don’t go anywhere near James Bartel. I’ve also got my fingers crossed that Gold Coast get a priority pick at the start of the draft.

Maynard has announced his retirement.
All the best to him. Been plagued by injury, but played professionally in 2 sports. Internally rated very high with his work rate and professionalism.

Think it was 2017 grand final, Justin plapp said it was one of the most dominant displays he had seen.

I'm sure he wishes he got to play 100 plus games, but no doubt he gave everything over his few seasons to do his best for the club, jumper and us supporters.

Since he was signed in August 2016, we've delisted/traded the following players who I think would all have made a bigger impact:

Lynden Dunn, Matt Jones, Ben Newton, Ben Kennedy, Mitch White, Tom Bugg.

Lynden Dunn has been one we let go to early!

The Pies really made us look silly there! But hey we are Melbourne and being stupid is what we do

It's a shopping list... the ones i'd want to sit down with to talk to, over a meal and refreshments. You have to speak to them first, to find out what they think... More than likely 80% would not be gettable.

But we must talk first, so we can ask the question.?

Wines I see as a possible replacement for nJones. Is on a bit of the outer at Port, atmo. Could be at his most gettable... (AVB and Jones are on their last legs). Maynard has retired.
We are not flushed with inside bodies, as we were 2 seasons back. Pre Tyson.

xDursma is one we should have recruited last season, with a pick we should have had.

King... hasn't done a lot yet, but looks enticing, and wants strongly to return home. In reality is a bit young for immediate needs, but cannot look a gift horse in the mouth... IF the timing is right.?
........

So our ability to get any of them, comes down to, 'cost and availability'... and what we have to offer. Hence the expressions of interest column.
.

To me, Pick 2 is Off the table. I want 'Lachie Ash' in Red'n'Blue, for 2020_

So pick 2 is off the table but you want to go after the players that would cost pick 2 (Minimum).

Are you a but simple 'schmutt'?

We can get a player if we have "the tradable" to do the job... Hence the expressions of interest column. Petracca, Hunt, Preussy, etc, if any of these get us something we'd consider, then we coud possible find a target we want to bring in... Also we have our 2020 1st Rnd pick... and other future picks from 2020_ which we could trade, for the right option.

It's obvious, we would have to find a player and their club, willing to talk... and we would have to work hard to get any deal over the potential line.
GWS are looking for a Ruck... I would trade with them, for the right deal. same Re Petracca, Hunt, etc.
..........

Now my 1st option to draft is LAsh... even moreso than Anderson, by reason of Ash's run, pace, and his Step in traffic... adding his great kicking, he is a must for us.

Anderson would be fantastic, and on reputation you would pick him ahead of LAsh, IF we only had pick 2...
But if we traded P2 for a Pick 3/4/5... plus another 'around P12'... then I would do that trade straight up, giving up Anderson for the 2Picks option. (hoping to get Anderson back in coming years... Via other dealings). If he was worth it then.

Mate Duursma and Ben King will alone cost you pick 2.
Clubs aren't stupid these days.

You are genuinely thick. Hopefully the rest of the board also puts you on ignore and you can have conversations with yourself since you enjoy the sound of your own voice so much.
