Why would people be saying Townsend’s time is up?
Because our bottom six is much much stronger than what it was when he had his dream run. Plus with our horrific injury list, if you are not a junior and you can’t get a call up chances are you never will. With so many exciting kids coming through list management at the end of the year will be ruthless. I would be amazed if Townsend survives

******** You Troll
My calls are never popular but thats what i believe and its not because i dont rate some players but more that we have depth in an area or can do without them and the club will be in a better position going foward.

Ellis - Leaves as a free agent and we get a band 2 compo and TPP relief
Grigg - Retired cap relief and have adequate players already to replace
Houli - same as grigg (i love the bloke and know him personally but he has bigger fish to fry outside of football)
Astbury - This will be the unpopular choice but with Garth now showing he is just as capable and Dave getting near 30 time to replace and take the TPP saving
Townsend - Maybe keep as a rookie but wouldnt be worried if gone
Weller - Should never have drafted
Butler - If a 2nd rounder is available take it otherwise keep

Moore - delist and rookie list
Chol - Keep on rookie list

There is no guarantee's Houli will go around again , Currently its 50/50

If Astbury gets a $750k x 3 year deal then no chance he stays

I think Astbury is a lot more valuable than is obvious watching games casually. Probably getting to the one year deal stage of his career but would be surprised he is not on well over $400k. One thing I notice is other players around him play better when he is there, and this makes him a valuable commodity and the club will know that. Agree though he is highly unlikely to attract any $750k type offers especially for 3 years. You would love to know what these guys are on to get an idea of how highly valued they are internally, but at 29 heading into next season a one or two year deal on $450-500k seems around the mark to me.

The performances,so far, by young players Stack, Baker, Bolton, Ross, Balta & Garth means we have good depth. And will need appropriate wage increases soon. In the case of Bolton he will get interest from WA I'm sure. For me Vlas re signing was important. Lynch and Dusty taking a big chunk of the cap is annoying. The others out of contract. Ellis, (don't match other offers) Grigg, Houli, (1 more year) Astbury, (1 year contracts from now?) Townsend, Weller, Butler, (let these 3 go) Menadue, keep if he keeps his spot, Moore, Chol Kmac, Egg (keep Kmac & Egg) Sheds, George, (keep). Maybe let Miller go. Resign Soldo, Stack, Naish, Baker

Agree, with your outs and re-signings
I would definitely keep Astbury...he is solid and a vital cog in our defence

Move on

Im not sure Markov would get any club's interest (except Frankston!!). He's contracted, so I think he stays as our 'depth'.

Early days but how I see it playing out at this stage
Keep
Stack
Bolton
Balta
Edwards
Astbury
Mcintosh
Naish
Castagna
Baker

Trade and free agency
Ellis (Let go if we get adequate compensation and it frees up money, if he is prepared to stay for less money I am happy to keep. Been a loyal and popular clubman)
Butler- too many in front of him but is too good to delist for nothing, will be interest.
Moore- release for a later pick so he can get more opportunity like we did with Stengle etc.

Delisted off the main list
Grigg

50/50
Menadue
Soldo
Miller
Chol

Delisted off rookie list
Weller
Townsend
Both are good depth but aren’t going to get a look in at AFL level

What we will bring in
A reasonably strong draft haul as we havent sold the farm trading out picks and probably compensation for Ellis. Also having Gold Coasts third is a little bonus. Only trades I can see happening are for a young big bodied mid that’s won’t cost too much money e.g Bonar or Brodie type. I think our list has all other areas covered so would just like to draft for best available talent.

Soldos efforts over the next 8 weeks will be make or break as far as getting an extension.

50/50 is exactly where he’s at. If he falls short of AFL standard then definitely should be looking at other options even with CJs development

8 weeks is ample for Soldo to show his wares at AFL level.

Soldo has had ample time on the list to develop, its now or never.

Gone are the days keeping a player on the list hoping he will develop (aka Todd Elton).
Our depth rucks get so little senior game time. How can you fully develop if selectors won't pick you for a year and a half.

After the weekend things don't change much. Astbury and Ellis are very good players. Its just going to be a matter of length of contract for Dave & money offers from Ellis. And watching the rucks in the VFL match. Chol & CJ will benefit the extra resposibility from Ivvy in the AFL.
