    Yes because:
    1. We can't have 41 senior players.
    2. He was drafted as a rookie in the mid season draft.
    3. The linked article states he will remain on the rookie list.
    4. All players (including rookies) are listed in the senior section of the website, it's just that Gardner is missing from the rookie section. Like I said the website is clearly out of date so I would not put any credence in it.

    Footy wire is just website compiled by somebody from the info that is out there. I don't think it has anymore reliability than my contract list thread.

    I'm backing in you and your thread. You're across all the tiny Bulldogs specific stuff with a microscope. Footy wire has to cover 18 clubs and do get it wrong. Example: Last year I was saying we should go after Lachlan Murphy from Adelaide because footy wire said he was uncontracted almost all year. Turns out he signed a contract extension early on. If in doubt, go with Axe Man.
    I drank the slab that Bon Scott drunk
    I injected some of Hendrixs junk
    I booked a seat on Lynyrd Skynyrds plane
    Mama Cass's sandwich? Ate the same

    Yep, always go with Axey for bulldog related minutia.

    It is actually kept up to date. On match day there are the live stats for every game, so it is run professionally by someone who has access to all stats. I wouldn't dismiss it.

    And yet it appears, based on all reasonable logic, that it's wrong in this case and is apparently has some history of being wrong with regards to list status.

    I don't see what the problem is given Axe Man has listed his sources. Unless Footywire has sources that indicate otherwise Axe Man seems more accurate in this case

    I think you misunderstood, I said footywire confirms what Axeman said ie, there are 5 rookies listed.

    Certainly not dismissing them and not commenting at all on their stats. However when it comes to contract information I am pretty sure they have access to exactly the same information the rest of us do: ie that which is publicly disseminated by the clubs.
