You would expect we'll need to delist around 5 to 6. Who would they the be if not the above?

Wont delist them all (depends on list size) but FWIW in order of in the gun for leysy (Broad traded and Rance delisted)

English
Garthwaite
Miller
Naish
Mabs
Eggs
With Stack a ? mark along with last years draftees who the club will know more of.

Turner's shown enough ILHO.
you're probably right (has to happen at some point), and i am probably being a little sentimental.- particularly with the smalls. we have so many the likes of English and Naish are easily replaced.
talls on the other hand i am not so sure.
Garth and Miller are probably 5th and 6th in line down back. One could go easily enough.
Chol is next in line as a forward, and will start next year as our back up ruck.
But then we have shown we wont pick guys who are tall just to fill spots on the field, so if the club doesnt rate Miller, or Garth or Chol they will happily delist them, and go into games with a small line up if injuries strike.

obviously all list decisions depend on who we might bring in.

Eddy hasn't told Gil what he want's to do with the slagpies list next year.
So we all have to wait.
He's making Gil wait until they find out what the actual charges are against DeGoey? Gil does what he's told.

Naish is contracted next year


I am pro keeping Naish. If his contract is cheap and he is only on for 1 more year I'd rather he stay where he is for a game.

Our young players who cant get a game with us need to realise there is a reason. Despite our success, we have continually made sure that players are given a chance if it has been earned. Pickett got debuted in a grand final, we reward results and take chances. Naish has gotten games, but not taken them. If he leaves, he is more likely to be Corey Ellis than Dan Butler

Don’t see why lists have to be cut at all. Just cut all players contract back. No one need to be on more than 500000 a years .

This is what happens when you let the Suns have a mammoth 51 players on their list as part of the ridiculous concessions they received last year due to their incompetence. Now apparently the vast majority on their list are contracted for next year, so if the AFL intend to reduce list sizes then they will be entering a legal minefield. Now they've painted themselves into a corner and they don't know how to get out of it.

AFL will pay out the necessary contract payouts.
They have been pouring $20 mil a year since they came into the competition so what’s another couple million?

Gold Coast (SE - QLD).
The AFL and clubs can't legally change their existing obligations to already contracted players, unless those players agree. Tigers in a relatively strong position because most of our players are already contracted for 2021. (Broad, Collier-Dawkins, English, Graham, Miller, Nankervis and Turner and others? are not in this group).
Because of these constraints the changes to list numbers and TPP may turn out to be minimal.

a Facebook page Is stating Graham has signed for 4 and Nankervis is not far behind.

Only need to select one player in this years draft.

"List sizes have also been confirmed, with list sizes reduced from between 38 and 47 to between 37 and 44.

A maximum of 38 players on the senior list, down from 40 this year. Teams will only have to select one player in this year’s draft if they wish."

So a club can have up to 6 rookies and 2 Cat B rookies ( Or at least 1 rookie)

So you could have 36 primary list players, 6 rookies and 2 Cat B rookies (44)

I’d like to see our rookies like Bakes and Marlion upgrade to the senior list and utilise the rookie list again as we have done so well from it.

Agreed! We have done so well out of it over the past few seasons. In fact, some of our rookie selections will no doubt be remembered as legends of the club in years to come! Even Eggsmolesse-Smith and Stack could still be anything.
