    Delisting and Retirements - 2021

    Post all delistings and retirements here. Some delistings could be a bargain to fill a role.

    Cash Converters Option:

    Tom Lynch, Adelaide, DFA, 30yo, 162 Games - one year deal on not much money to cover Bruce. Kicked 30+ Four years. Not a star, but a very cheap insurance policy if we want a 193cm 88kg target to have while Bruce gets his body right.

    Nice suggestion. With doubts on Walker perhaps the Crows sweeten the deal for him

    They’ve delisted him. DFA.



    ADELAIDE will part ways with Tom Lynch at the end of the Toyota AFL Premiership Season after not offering the experienced forward a new contract.

    The 30-year-old has been an important part of the Crows' forward line since arriving from St Kilda before the 2012 season.

    Lynch enjoyed his best seasons when Adelaide were in deep finals contention between 2015 and 2017 but has kicked just six goals in eight games this year.

    He booted 42 goals in 2016 and finished with a career-high 10-goal haul during a game against GWS in 2013.

    Adelaide coach Matthew Nicks hailed the contribution Lynch has made as a member of the Crows' leadership group during the past five years.

    "Tom has been described as 'The Connector' and it is a good description of the influence that he has had on and off the field, which has been significant," Nicks said.

    Lynch said he was hoping to add to his 161 career games before the end of the season and would soon decide if he is to try and play on a different club next year or retire.

    Not sure he is a direct replacement for Bruce as 'The Connector' description is apt - his best footy was as a high forward linking up between the backline and forwards. However I guess he could fit in if we rejigged and had Naughton, English and Marra as the primary deeper forwards? Whether he is still up to it and healthy enough is another question.

    Re: Delisting and Retirements - 2021

    I like Lynch. He played the first 6 games this year, got injured, and has returned for the last 4.
    Rd 18 15k 10h 6m 1 goal
    Rd 19 11k 6h 7m 1 goal
    Rd 20 9k 9h 4m 1 goal
    Rd 21 10k 12h 6m 1.2

    That says to me that he's still got something to offer. I think a hit-up half forward with good skills would be a great addition to our side - but not necessarily a priority.

    Could we play Lynch and Hannan in the same side?

    Re: Delisting and Retirements - 2021

    I advocated for us looking at Lynch these last two years. I think he is a decent option and while a different player to Bruce is still good enough imo. I am probably more inclined to us getting a long term proper ruck though and playing English forward more, but Lynch would be cheap and is ready to go.
    I should leave it alone but you're not right

    If he is still available with our last pick in the draft, then yes. Not a priority, and I'm not going to trade for him.

    He’s soon to be a Delisted Free Agent. Anyone can get him for free.
