Matt crouch will join a Melbourne club next season is the word. Playing SANFL and at odds with the coach.
Can get the pill. Not sure he suits our game plan.

Midfielders, and that includes a top class ruckman. Having seen the advantage Gawn, Darcy, Natanui and Ryder provide at clearances, I would target a top class ruck in addition to running players. No question Nank is a competitive beast but his strength is not winning taps. Clean clearances are gold in AFL right now.

There's a possibility that Martin, Cotchin, Riewoldt, Edwards and Lambert might not be at Tigerland next year. That's around 1,300 games worth of experience.

At the minimum a key forward and an inside mid should be top priority.

Blair and Co have got their work cut out for them.

It won't be all 4. But 3 will be gone.
If that means a reset, so be it.
We have picks and we will have cap space.

Not sure how Geelong always have room
Dangerflop Smith Dalhouse Higgins Rohan Cameron. Stengle will want more next year.
What's Bilivass, Selsook, Stewart, Fat Guts and Duncan on??
They are linked to The kid from GWS Bruner, Worpal and now I've heard they are 100% going after Degoey.
Something stinks.

There aren't many around. Other than those you mention, who we won't get, who do you suggest?

It’ll be a juggling act. I assume Lambo and Edwards won’t go on. IF Martin goes then Cotch would probably be pressed to stay on in ‘23. Jack? Geez, the way Dimma spoke it didn’t sound good. But maybe if we lose 3 senior players he,ll be asked to stay on too.

And don't forget the word on the street is they are right into Brayshaw from Dees. You got to wonder.

I think a lot will depend on how deep we go into this season.
If we go out of the finals early, or, perish the thought, don't make the finals, my guess would be that Jack would be asked to retire.
Shed and Lambert to retire, and Cotchin goes around again, and hopefully Dusty stays.

I reckon Gibcus has got forward written all over him. He replaces Jack, he's is a better mark than Balta and is a good set shot at goal. He will have learnt a lot playing on key forwards this season, I'm confident he can do it.

Balta and Miller to play down back, and trade in an inside mid.

All the speculation have we or haven't we got cap space?
Houli & Astbury & Rance easy 1.5mil
Lambert & Edwards will definitely go. 1mil
Cotchin & Jack even if they stay no 700k
Caddy 450k free up

Sign up Rioli & Bolton,
Offer Baker 450-500k 4yrs.
No excuses not to go after a quality mid like Tarranto. The way both Hardwick & Balme talked about the senior players makes me think, we will clear alot of cap space, so we are active in bringing in players similar to 17.
My preferences no order Tarranto Green Hopper, Uniake, Mitchell, Crouch
Zurrfart, must be a priority.

From Nth, add in Ben McKay ( remember 3 seasons ago when his brother was ordinary) and Taryn Thomas ( rumoured to be unhappy at Nth )

I think if Martin leaves, both Riewoldt and Cotchin should get another year. For leadership purposes more than anything. You don't want to cut too deep a la Melbourne or Hawthorn.

My thoughts are that if Cotch goes then Dusty will ask for a move. Those two are very tight and I just cant see Dusty wanting to come to training etc without his best mate there....
