Opportunity to pick up jarhead for nothing???
Snippa was a good journeyman player, as dimma said you always know what you are going to get with him. He was never as good as some on here rated him, defensive spread wasn't there, even if he could win the ball.

Congrats to him on making the best of what he had.

Ellis never turned up in senior games for us.

Yep his lack of ability to cover the ground cost him his career but as a footballer he was a good footballer could win the footy and tough.

Was extremely important for the Tigers before he became redundant with the change in game.

Congrats for getting the best out of yourself Snippa, always a Tiger.

Ellis never looked like he even wanted to play AFL footy

Hard to think of a more unfulfilled talent in modern times than Jack Watts. Athletically gifted with exquisite skills and a natural football brain but almost zero desire to compete.

Can’t help but wonder how much of that was a result of Melbourne’s “renowned” player development...
Played the same when still a school boy, all the talent but lacked the necessary bit of street mongrel.

welp.
Harley Bennell has retired, but that said it's doubtful he would have gotten a contract next year anyhow.

I don’t think Glenn listed them as retirees but as ex Richmond players at other clubs.

Roger thanks Timmeh ... I thought the Lloyd one was a bit surprising.

But somehow I dont see Callum staying on at Princess Park.
