Ok…given the brains trust in Blitz is greater than the EFC Administration, which 5 players get the flick from our list when the AFL continues to play funny buggers with our (once great) game?
44 (?) doesn’t fit into 40, either.
The brains trust has spoken!
Which NINE players drop off the list
and that’s even before delisting even more so as to be able to enter the draft!
Ambrose not selected this week, and hasn’t done anything for a month.
Bellchambers? not selected this week, and hasn’t done anything for a month.
Bryan: not selected this week, and hasn’t done anything for a month.
Pretty sure we’re at 46 just now aren’t we?
Shut up or we’ll chop you.
… sorry … carry on …
The club doesn’t need unlucky players, so that’s why I’ve invented the “Random Delist Bot”.
The entire playing list was entered in numerical order, and the sore of our last win (9 [goals] 9 [behinds] 63 [total score]) was used to seed the Python random choices algorithm. Under the assumption we need a playing list of 35, the following players were delisted:
May I take this opportunity to say your algorithm sucks
Okay, it’s time for the easiest part of any coach’s job - the cuts.
Now while I wasn’t able to cut everyone I wanted to, I have cut a lot of you.
Bellchambers is cut.
Zaka is cut.
Hurley, you’re gone.
Langford, I like your hustle. That’s why it was so hard to cut you.
Congratulations, the rest of you made the team.
Except McKenna, McBride and McQuillan.
Damnit, I was surprised no one had gone with it yet. Anyway…
There is no way that the clubs will be able to cut contracted players. They would have to pay out their contracts.
I dont like this game!
punt stewart if Joe stays
hooker might be done
McKenna will probably leave
Clarke is probably borderline
If Joe and Stewart are both fit, they’re both keeps for mine. There’s space for both and none of the youngsters will be ready for a year or three yet.
I was surprised Clarke got a contract last year, but he did - until 2021. Will stay.
what the dickens is going on?
surely it’s the guys who only have a 1 year contract.
Hibberd second last in
Gown unlucky but injury prone?
Crauford last in
and then do u have to jettison the cat B picks
Hirdy and Mcquillan?
Yup. If the AFL want teams to cut contracted players, the AFL’s going to have to pay out the contracts.
