    There was a detailed article written last year explaining how Bevo’s footy connections and influence (namely through his father) provided opportunities for some close friends to get into the list management space. Those same friends ended up joining Melbourne and ultimately masterminded the Demons list build, in a way helping to stop Bevo from winning another flag.

    Without their connection to Bevo, it’s unlikely they ever get into list management in the first place. Funny how the world works.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Worst part of that is Van Rooyen was picked using our first pick.
    Melbourne could screw us again!

    Well... it's really only in the last 18 months that many of the fringe type players that the Dees have, have really shone to their potential, or shown what they couldbe. So their list management isn't going to be as easy as "they're on our list now, so we'll be keeping them".

    They have a fair few A-graders, and so some of the newer kids, and likes of Jackson, Fritsch, Brayshaw, McDonald etc may get offers elsewhere they can't refuse. Who knows. I hope so!
