I always thought it was an unwritten rule that if the club was going to relist them then the other clubs wouldn't touch them. I was wrong. The AFL are not going to like their love-child GCS being made look silly like this.

I reckon pesky lolnorf are starting to the rock the boat and *smile* a few clubs off.

No love lost and when they finally climb the ladder with some decent players and have their own salary cap issues, watch as the other clubs rip into them, lol won’t be lol then.

Agree, except if GCS were struggling to make minimum TPP. Greenwood’s entire payout would go under this year cap. Would explain why Greenwood agreed to the move in the first place. He gets two years salary up front plus an extra year at least on rookie $.

Or, and this is probably more likely given their history, GCS just *smile* up.
GC were at peak salary cap, hence moving on Peter Wright last year and Will Brodie this year (though both were not best 22, which is exactly the type to dump)

I,d guess that GC and Greenwood mutually agreed to change in contract, similar to what we did with Cotch and Jack.
For Greenwood instead of 1 contract of 4 years, it could be 2 contracts of 2 years each, 2020-2021 and 2022-2023. So he is now officially off-contract and could be delisted, but had a new contract waiting.
In theory he gets the same money over the same duration.
No need to pay out his original contract

*of course North screwed theory

I like to take a look at our Under 23 team each year.

The top table is those under 23 at the start of December 2020 and then the 2nd is those under 23 as at the 1st of December 2021. Red is they are not in the Under 23 team any longer due to age, red with strikethrough is they are no longer on the list, and blue are our new draftees.

Its a pretty healthy looking team the bottom one. IMO big upgrades on those we have cut bar CCJ who we probably knew we weren't going to be able to replace this year with a like for like tall forward, it would have resulted in a massive reach unless we got JVR at 17.

Gibcus > Garthwaite
Brown > Egg
Banks vs Naish - we sure hope he will be better
Clarke and Sonsie have replaced players of different types.

When you look at that bottom table and we already have Balta and Bolton that are easily in our best 22, and we got plenty of games out of Mansell, RCD, Ralhp-Smith, Stack, Dow and Ross last year (and hopefully they take that next step forward this year) then the future looks bright with some of the other guys coming through.

If hes as good as some are gushing about he will be the one I will keep an eye on next year.

Sonsie and banks are being spruiked quite vociferously which is very exciting.

Its also obvious that in the next 3 years we need to target a key forward or 2 and elite mids.
The u23 has speed and skills to burn, plus a bunch that can become stars of the comp.
Add 2 more stars and badaboom
No pressure!
