THE AXE has continued to swing at West Lakes, with Adelaide delisting another three players in defender Luke Thompson and rookies Alex Spina and James Battersby.
The latest departures finalised the club's list heading into November's NAB AFL Draft.
The Crows have made nine changes since the end of season 2014, waving goodbye to retired veterans Ben Rutten and Jason Porplyzia, while cutting Jared Petrenko, Lewis Johnston and Shaun McKernan.
Head of football David Noble thanked Thompson, Spina and Battersby for their service.
Thompson played six games in 2014 to bring his overall tally to 20 in four seasons.

"They are all good young people who were popular around our club," Noble said.

"Luke, in particular, had a terrific attitude and work ethic."
The club has filled two of the seven vacancies on its senior list by recruiting Hawthorn pair Kyle Cheney and Luke Lowden during the NAB Trade Period.
Small forward Charlie Cameron will also be upgraded from the rookie list, which leaves four senior spots to fill at the draft.
