FAREWELL BRENT MOLONEY


RalphiusMaximus

Recommended Posts

Just reading this article on the AFL website. If his agent has made overtures to every other club, I suspect that signs are not terribly good for Beamer. Surely if he has real value the clubs should be making offers to him? To me this sounds a lot like they are not getting any bites and are willing to take pretty much any offer they get.

A lower contract will reduce the compo pick we get in exchange for him so it's also our problem.

Yup I mentioned this in another thread.

My gut is that he got good coin from MFC, and whilst he has interest from some other clubs, it's not quite at the level that he and his management were expecting, But it's not a good look to have your manager come out and say he has shopped you around to every other club.

I suspect the Dons are keen if the Goddard deal falls through. Can Essendon afford to pay big to both Beamer and Goddard?

If the player's manager has been shopping him around for the best part of 6 months, and MFC giving their blessing for him to go where ever he can get a contract, if I were a list manager at another club, I don't think I would be expecting to pay Beamer a big contract.

this is why some deals will fall through in 2-3 days.

We have cash. I wouldn't be suprised if the MFC pounce on a deal that is not yet seen.

Free Agency is Poker...

Can also put pressure on/ open opportunities for trades when players (not able to use FA) are being squeezed by incoming FA I.e. Wellingham (Cloke deal) and Gumbleton (Goddard deal)...

correct. I wasn't aware of the 72 hour matching clause until yesterday.

Very clever planning.

The MFC is in a prime position for all this.

We have abundant salary cap room if bidding wars start.

Obviously depends on their cap space, but also if there are any outgoing. Ie. Monfries, Lovett-Murray. If a couple of dominoes fall early, it may enable more movement.

You don't really think he is worth a compo pick do you?

You're assuming that they will be given a compo pick before our pick 13? I agree that they will deserve a good pick, but who knows how the AFL and their super-top-secret-extra-special-formula will actually work?

yes i am assuming Brendan Goddard is in Level 1. Otherwise the system is a farce.

Am I right in believing that he is the only player to make it publicly known that he was leaving his club before the end of the season.

It seems a strange move by the player and manager. This effectively announces that his current club will not be involved in negotiations and do not want to keep him at any cost..

Moloney's manager loves medjia street.

One article recently referred to him as a 'leading player manager'. Googling revealed him to be a very minor player manager indeed.

Methinks Moloney would have had concrete offers from other clubs before announcing his intention to test the free agency waters.

Not sure how clever it is, for most players we would certainly not be seen as thier first option. Being what we are we currently we need to make a big pitch while holding much bigger bags of cash.

Otherwise I expect we could get some leftovers, some of whom might be useful.

we are going to have to spend Big this year & next as a start to get the ball rolling. But the top clubs will be squeezed out because of cap restrictions pretty quick. MFC plays it smart we can counter with 1-2 lucrative deals hopefully.

Gee Beamers manager sounds desperate in this article.

Compensation picks must be used this year

Indeed. Wonder where he found his manager. He started shopping around Round 6 or 7, wasn't it?

Heard last night on SEN regarding compensation that his top 10 finish in the Brownlow (2011) helps a little regarding the compensation. How much? I don't know.

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th
