    Rueben William is a Footscray player who has impressed many and a couple of insiders in here have said is earmarked as a draftee (probably rookie), whilst Chatfield and Dawson are NGA members considered probable rookies.

    Confirmed on AFL website that we still have one list spot available.

    Gibbons. He's belted the door down and he'll bleed for the jumper.

    Surely they'd rather get someone in sooner than later if that is their plan, so they can get the most out of the pre-season.

    At this stage if you include Picken and Webb who if we are honest have no immediate return to footy dates we are 3 short on the list.

    So we may get one in pre xmas, but it wouldnt surprise me if we had another spot open up in Jan - Feb.

    Any ideas if we're interested in Marlion Pickett? Plenty of potential for immediate impact for that last spot

    We would be mad not to give Gibbons a go. Local boy, has runs on the board and we need mature bodies. Get it done.

    Don’t think Picken and Webb open spots up though do they? They’d just stay on the list as injured and it’s just bad luck.

    Very small midfielder. Probably not an ideal fit for our list.

    Dahl out, Gibbons in.

    Grigg would be nice too, 31 disp and 6 goals in a granny. Doesn't get much better than that.

    With Griggs recent form and performance in the GF it’s strange he didn’t get picked up. Are there attitude problems or something along those lines ?

    Im not sure how it works but the whole rule come into play because of the February retirements last year.
    Tippett and another one whose name escapes me.
    As they are contracted the $$ goes into the cap but if you have cap space and player retires I thought you can fill the retired list spot.

    He's 25 so maybe that could be an issue for clubs.

    I also believe that to be the case. The retired player will be placed on the new ‘inactive list’ meaning we can sign a player before the start of the season, or if the retirement occurs during the first half of the season we can draft a player in the mid season rookie draft.

    All providing we have cap space that is which I don’t believe will be a problem.

    Unfortunately, adding Hayes, Cavarra and West all in one off-season means we probably have too many smalls

    Also excrutiatingly slow, on the smaller side and a one position player.
