Huh? Lloyd & Hampson didn’t play in the GF so yes they are types of players Richmond moved past to become a better team. Lloyd was only drafted in 2013 so been on their list 5 seasons & will very likely be delisted at years end, Hampson of course has already retired & was on their list for 5 years.
Dixon has been on WB’s list for 7 years & had 2 seasons of clearly well above average performance. In 2015-2016 he was one of the best small/medium forwards in the game with 40 & 50 goal returns. Only a really desperate person would try to compare his career to Colyer’s . Dixon has now had 2 poor seasons so I would expect he is most likely facing delisting.
Do you mean Matthew Spangher the guy delisted 2 years ago after only 4 years on their list? Seriously are you not seeing how these guys are nothing like holding on to a guy for 9 seasons for an average of about 10 games per year (allowing for 2016) & not many of those games can be regarded as better than average?
OK Shoenmakers, you may have found 1 player comparable in terms of being on their list for an extended period & not being a particularly good player. Does that mean you believe that was somehow a good list management decision for Hawthorn? In their last GF Shoenmakers was 2 years younger & had already played more games that Colyer has now but if you use my standard then yes I believe Shoenmakers should have been delisted before now & I think you will struggle to make a case to suggest that would have been the wrong list decision. Once again I will be very surprised if he is not delisted at years end.
If you want some better comparisons try players like Dyson who also played 9 seasons for not much, Slattery 8 seasons & now we have Jerrett up to 7 seasons. Does anyone really think that was good list management?
Now once again I said they had to be best 22 & at least middle or above average at 24+ or should be delisted. There is no point retaining players who have never been able to give you a sustained return or at least have some exposed good form & reason to believe they can replicate that form or reason to believe they can get even better (reach a high standard). Colyer has a few good games spattered over 9 seasons. Thats simply not justifying of more time on the list. As I said I’m happy to give him the rest of the year given the unique situation of the saga but if he’s not playing decent footy by the end of the year he should clearly be moved on.
