But really, where to now for Travis Cloke?
The ladder may have changed a lot this season, but, one thing has remained a talking point all through the year: Travis Cloke.
Recently, the Cloke story has continued with reported interest from the Adelaide Crows to go alongside the already interest from Fremantle. Melbourne, Carlton and Greater Western Sydney.
As hard as it may be to believe, Travis Cloke is not the only free agent at the end of this year.
The hit list of players for many clubs include Brendon Goddard (St. Kilda), Angus Monfries (Essendon), Kurt Tippett (Adelaide), Quinten Lynch (West Coast Eagles) and Clinton Young (Hawthorn).
These players would all fit very well at any club and are an very easy to build a team around.
Brendon Goddard is interested in an apparent move to Carlton, a team he should have started his career at after he was selected by St. Kilda in the 2002 AFL Draft.
Over in Adelaide, Kurt Tippett is interested in a move to his home state of Queensland to partner Jonathan Brown.
If Tippett leaves, this would leave a large amount of money that could be used to pay the wages of Travis Cloke.
The list of free agents is huge and is packed with talent. Every club could be seriously affected by free agency in the 2013 season both on the field and in the office.
Even the smaller names up for grabs such as Lyndenn Dunn (Melbourne), Will Minson (Western Bulldogs) and Steven Salopek (Port Adelaide) will be targets for clubs like Gold Coast and Melbourne who are still rebuilding and (hopefully) have a promising future.
Back to Collingwood, and the board have said that they have put contract negotiations on hold until the end of the season.
What does this mean for Cloke and Collingwood?
Many people believe that Travis Cloke is on the way out, and if he does leave, that will leave a fair bit of room in the salary cap.
So who would such a big club like Collingwood target in the free agency market?
For those who are a little confused, here are the rules of free agency.
