Will retirements affect VFL teams???

This season a number of AFL players have decided to retire at the end of the year and also had farewell games. But there has been no mention of them playing out the season in the VFL.

Will Shannon Watt continue at the Roosters? Russell Robertson, Whelan and Wheatley at Casey?
Stewie Dew at Box Hill?

This could make a huge difference to teams at finals time.

Will Joel Bowden play for Coburg this week ?
Most likely not. Coburg also have the bye in the last roud and would need a miracle to get in the eight.

Shannon Watt will most certainly be playing for the Roosters for the rest of the year. (Barring Injury)
It is where he started his football career and it is where he wants to finish.
Not many players around that possess the qualities of Shannon Watt.

Word is that Robertson may join his good mate Yze at Box Hill next year.

Can anyone see Joel Bowden in the VFL next year or will he cash in suburban/country footy?
