  • Latest Podcast: Josh Mahoney Interview



Recommended Posts

At some stage this season and hopefully soon, we need to announce the re signings of the Mcs, Gus and Jetta.

That will allow us to move forward, without conjecture on those players.

I asked Josh Mahoney a couple of weeks ago, don't have to hide my source, of course he said we are interested in Gaff, like any player

Can confirm that we wouldn't be interested in 'any' player. 

And no, I didn't ask Mahoney.

 I for one would be satisfied if Dom left for greater opportunities... aside from disposal errors, he's a  solid contributor...but as it stands in this team in 2018 - he doesn't make it into the best midfield that we can put on the ground.

Dom and our 2nd round pick (pick 36) for Carlton's early 2nd round pick (pick 19) ? 

Great way to free up some salary cap space, let Taylor work his magic on pick 19 and then get Gaff.

Considering Dom played for GWS, we might get a first rounder from Carlton.

competition from multiple clubs should push dom lower than pick 30

If Don didn’t deliver a pick inside 25 I wouldn’t consider it 

Midfield depth is key to winning games of football

Dom isn't a pick 25 at Melbourne.

It’s all relative. He’d be a top 10 at Carlton or St Kilda.

Yes but they certainly wouldn't give up pick 10 let alone 25 or even 35 imo

I'm quite confident we will not lose TMac, Oscar seems certain to re-sign and Gus also seems a formality.

Jetta will never ever leave the Demons pending some unforeseen family circumstances that may see him want to move west. Can't see it though, he will be a Demon for life.

No inside knowledge on any of this just my opinion.

If he gets us back into the first round or gives us currency to use on a guy like Gaff I wouldn't hesitate.

Let's not over-speculate; it pushes up the price of recruiting astronomically.

If Gaff wants to be a Dee, it is up to him to show it with subtle resolve; if we want him, we could come together with Gaff to support this arrangement/outcome.

With an environment of varied form and injury risks remaining ever-present, any good price is enough if the player wants to occupy a position in an emerging superteam.

It does not need to be the highest price - if that is all Gaff wants, then we really don't need him.

If he is a fair dinkum bloke, and everything points towards that being the case, he will be a Demon on these terms in 2019 and from that, will be much appreciated in a continuous appearance in coming grand finals for the Dees. 

Gaff's good, but I think we can do better.   Maybe Sloane this year on a heavy front ender, and Kelly in 2019, on a looong deal?

Previous to this year he lacked inside work. He’s now doubling the amount of clearances per game compared to last season and averaging two more contested possessions per game. 

It would be a minor scandal if somewhere along the line it was whispered in his ear that he'd need to improve in these areas if he wanted to come to us. But not outside the realms of possibility. Pretty sure Sylvia had to demonstrate his certain predilections before being determined a cultural fit in the West.

Edit: No offence to your good self of course Mr Tremblay.

Channel 7 Perth just reported that Paul Connors is here to discuss “expressions of interest” with Gaff. Reeled off all the clubs we already know are keen including MFC.

Last time we wanted Paul Connors to get us a #3 from West Coast didn’t go so well.

True, and he wasn't pleased with us over the Watts trade last year, but Connors is a pro and speaks highly of our list and direction.

We are almost a completely different club to the one Juddy visited in '07.

Goodness me, this bloke is a jet and will contribute to our side amazingly.

Today he was absolutely pivotal in so much of the Eagles play.

We desperately need a player of Gaff’s qualities and skills.

Go and get Gaff.

Totally agree. We are clearly still 2 to 3 

quality players short of being a top 6 side.

I think we're a top 6 side fully fit. Add Gaff to that side and we're nearing top 4.

Our biggest problem for mine is that despite what some say, our depth is really ordinary and our bottom 4 to 6 are a) too inconsistent at best or b) Not good enough to be playing in a top 8 side.

Disagree AF, our bottom 6 are no worse than anybody elses.

We lack outside polish and experience on the outside, we're not far away as those can be fixed with recruitment and gametime

Gaff the player would be excellent but the added knowledge he'd bring from the Eagles would be invaluable.

From an impeccable source . . . 

Gaff has been offered six million over seven years by a Victorian club (not us) with lots of cash. Contract would be substantially front loaded.

A number of Victorian clubs are right into Jeremy McGovern as well. Don't know if we are one of them.
