Wow - great list. The system really does spit them out doesn't it.

I dont get a chance to watch a great deal of footy other than Hawks games and would love to hear how the current players at other clubs are doing (don't want to derail thread.

We can leave Joey Kennedy out as I'm pretty sure we all know how he goes :(

Agreed. This puts contract negoatiations into perspective. You only have to be close to someone trying to get a game at an AFL club to realise how cut throat it is and how heartbreaking it can be to be "oh so close". Clubs churn through players with little regard to loyalty, and Hawthorn is no exception.

I have complete sympathy for players trying to make the most of their careers and when it comes time for the table to turn, as it has with Buddy, Gablett and others, I have total respect for their decisions to get the utmost out of their limited shelf life.

But I'll be devastated if he goes!

Played against Rhan Hooper's team on the weekend although he was injured. He plays for Springwood in the AFLQ Div 1 comp.

Albert Proud, the ex-Lions player, also plays for them and got sent red carded
for threatening the umpire.

Great thread. Back a bit further but Lance Picioane was playing for Boort in the North Central league about 5 years ago. Wikipedia says he plays for Kyneton currently?

Pretty sure Kyneton aren't fielding a senior team this year due to lack of numbers when Thommo didn't recommit as coach. Only fielding reserves team.

Angelo Lekkas runs his own business, Footy Specialist Coaching Academy: http://www.footysca.com.au/

Peter Everitt has been in the media doing bits and pieces on TV and Radio. I think he lives up here now and he's currently on Triple M.
Angelo also has some advertising banners at Box Hill FC, seems he is also a ANZ Banking rep.

A bit older I know but the Andy Collins coached West Adelaide FC is currently on top of the ladder with Trav Tuck as mentioned above.
They will be playing a Foxtel Cup match at the MCG against Port Melbourne on the 11th June.

AFL Member so all clubs I guess.
I find it interesting how so many of the retirements/delistings are still playing in the second tier comps. Just shows the fine line between being in a squad and being on the outer of the club.
