    not sure they ever merited being drafted in the first place. I'd have liked to have given Dear another go round

    Dear seemed to really go backwards this year based on what I read/numbers he was posting in the SANFL (can't say I've seen it with my own two eyes).

    I was surprised Hunter didn't get delisted last year, so for him to still be on the list surprises me even more.
    This post was more than likely SC based.
    If in doubt, assume it was.

    Tom Lynch has reportedly chosen Richmond over Haw/Coll as his preferred FA location.

    I really wouldn't expect it to be, lets be honest, 15 months ago most people had them as one of the weaker lists in the comp.

    Rance, Riewoldt, Martin and Cotchin would be getting paid good money but all have reportedly taken discounts to stay with the Tigers.

    Prestia would have gotten a front loaded deal you'd think to get him over.

    After that...

    Grimes would probably be cheap given his durability history. Astbury, Broad and Short would all be on peanuts unless they just re-signed. Houli wouldn't be expensive I wouldn't think either. Vlastuin would also be cheap given he hadn't done much until basically 15 months ago. That's the backline.

    Grigg would be on an average level salary. McIntosh would be on peanuts. Rioli, Castagna, Higgins, Butler, Townsend and Graham would all be on peanuts still.

    Caddy I don't know, he was kind of done at Geelong when they got him so probably not paid that much. Nankervis would be cheap as chips stil. Conca would be cheap given he can't stay on the park. Edwards, unless he renegotiated in the past 15 months, would also be cheap as a guy who has been somewhere in the very ordinary to outright bad for his whole career but has held on to a list spot until coming good in that period with a very specific role.

    They've got two guys who retired as well, so that's probably a good 50% of Lynch's contract right there.

    Brandon Ellis is the only other guy outside the 22 who would reasonably have an above average size contract.

    They've got a ton of guys that most had written off that have come good with specific roles and their game plan that would be cheap, a ton of kids or guys who were underwhelming on their first contracts but got a chance at a second but probably for cheap and a few stars that all have been said to have taken a discount to stay.

    I mean as far as top earners go their team would probably be among the lowest counts so it makes sense they can add some talent.

    I actually don't really like the Lynch signing for them. Firstly his body seems broken, secondly he seems a terrible fit for their game style, basically all his weakest areas are what they're going for. Thirdly their true standout part of their team is their lack of size and speed and keeping the ball on the ground and moving, that's the opposite of what Lynch provides basically. Lynch is a terrific player, just not sure he's going to make Richmond better. Long term though he can replace Riewoldt and that would be a good reason to get him alone.

    Few additions from the weekend. Josh Green for Essendon delisted and Geelong have delisted 6 players. Expecting some news out of Sydney in the next couple of days as well, although they may wait until after the NEAFL finals have finished.

    Fox Sports claiming that Hanners had told Sydney he'd like to be traded, however, waiting for confirmation from either party before adding him to the trade request list.

    Hanners and Rohan confirmed as seeking a trade, so they've been added to the list.

    Two others that are rumoured to want out but haven't yet confirmed are Nic Newman and Steven May. Lynch and May both leaving in the same year would all but kill off GC. Perhaps they're better off either dying or just completely starting over, maybe this time they'll put in the right off-field structure, training facilities and draft/trade the right sort of experienced players.
