    And if others are playing so well that he spends time at Footscray, then that is fine too. Have to have a squad to win it - and we will be in the mix of contenders next season.
    Yeah, I’m leaning that way too. If others force him out through their own good form, it only makes us stronger. At worst, he plays at Footscray and players like Cavarra, Greene etc get to learn forward craft from him up close.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    While I do think his touch is declining, but the post was more about pure math. If we needed seven spots to fit trade/free agents and draft recruits into, then seven spots includes Dickson it would seem. Unless someone asks to be let out of a contract, or it's made six spots. After a year of signing players, things look very tight for those on that list.

    Re: WBFC - Player Contract Status

    The opening paragraph of this thread has Khamis listed as contracted for 2020.

    I haven't seen this reported anywhere else and I am wondering whether this is true or it is a mistake.

    Definitely got a 2 year contract.

    The club were always going to take him in the draft, but after he wasn't bid on, he was allowed to slide through to being a rookie selection - but he was still given 2 years by the club.

    Yep, understand and wasn't doubting the maths or realities of it at all. I just find it surprising that we are heading down a path where his spot on the list might be in jeopardy - I just think he is playing good footy and that it is pretty clear from him being picked for the last 9 weeks in the period where we've played the best we have for the season.

    Will be interesting to see how it plays out - I'd be really disappointed if we let him go - and would be surprised if he didn't get snapped up by another AFL club.

    OK, but how do you know this? When he was drafted, the club said it was for the 2019 season and no mention was made of two years.

    Academic anyway as he would have been given a second year based on his performances at VFL level this year.

    And Williams, Morris, Roberts & Webb seeming certainties. We delisted/moved on a lot worse than this group, more so with Dicko.

    Porter got an extension. A rookie list move means delisting them still. I was a little surprised his signature came before others. Maybe with Dale’s imminent extension that us done for re-contracting? It’s getting hard to be mathematically possible now to keep those remaining, unless there’s a premature retirement (ie Redders/Cloke). My guess is at least 7 (5 more) have to leave. That’s where we are. A lot of water under the bridge to come though.
