    Whoah, not so much an axe taken to Norf's list as a wrecking ball.

    Bravo but that's a nice indictment on their recruiting staff over the past handful of years.

    Yeah Norf not messing around at all! What a waste though, their "war chest" brought Pittard, who just got the flick and Polek's overpriced contract which apparently they want off the books. They're now bottoming out completely, I'm not critical of that move by the way, it's what they need to do, the management before it though needs to be held accountable for what they have done. It'll be a long road back and while I hate Norf it'll be tough to crawl out of in the current climate. Hope we don't lose a club out of it.

    Attention Goldy...get out while you can!
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Re: Delists, Retirements - 2020

    Pittard was dropped for a few games not adhering to coaches rules/plans so seeing him go doesn’t surprise. In his last few games he’s looked very laconic. Same goes for Wood. It seems very obvious what Shaw has done here. Anyone who he sees as not good enough, lazy, not hard at it, or not willing to play to his game style, will get their papers stamped.

    This sends a very clear msg to the rest. Get your act together or get lost.
    I will never see #16 the same!!

    If they cut any deeper they won't be able to field a side.

    You might be thinking of Polec, Pittard hasn't played since round 11 (in fact he played 33 games straight since crossing from Port up to round 11, and then delisted!).

    North are stuck with Polec unless someone is willing to take some of his large contract off their hands.

    Ah, my mistake. Apologies. Obviously his papers were stamped as early as round 11

    I think there will be clubs looking at Mason Wood
    Not sure what happened with Durdin who looked to be a decent and versatile player

    North have really opened the way to sign some free agents and I'm not sure that is the best way forward for them
    They need to go to the draft

    I wonder what they will do with Goldy and Brown?
    Start each day with a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone.
    Know that life is not fair and that you will fail often. But if take you take some risks, step up when the times are toughest, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden and never, ever give up — if you do these things, then the next generation and the generations that follow will live in a world far better than the one we have today.
    And what started here will indeed have changed the world — for the better.

    We might have our own challenges in reducing the list down if the AFL set it at 38

    With 11 gone, potentially more if they trade any of Polec/Brown/Goldy/Higgins, I think they can do both.

    Get 2-3 free agents (delisted or otherwise) that will buy in to your culture, and fill the rest at the draft.

    That might be their plan but they haven't even got the list numbers for next year yet.

    I don't think that you can do both. It's a philosophy thing and either you go to the draft and go with kids or you think that you're in a position to take shortcuts and still achieve success with some FAs. IMO North are at the first stage and have to go back to the beginning and start again with kids.
    WASH YOUR HANDS!!!
