The age factor is there but let's say we got him very cheap DS and Weid (just speculating) is a bust after another 8 games or so of trialling in 2020.  No Bull Smith.  We are starting to plumb the depths a little in terms of support for T-Mac in the KF stakes.  And what if he Tommy doesn't cut the mustard in 2020 or incurs a new injury?  Not saying he will and hoping otherwise but need to look at the  "what ifs".  Especially MFC luck with injuries, anything's possible.

If we got two reasonable years and an improvement on what the Weid brings at the moment?  All stats point to a fair upgrade in comparison.  Might be the difference between a bounce vs a slim finals shot next season?  Two years max on small coin and we have some KF depth/insurance.  Maybe a win win?  Normally i wouldn't even consider JJ but beggars can't be choosers and in JJ's case there's no begging.  He wants out!...

 https://www.afl.com.au/stats/stats-pro#/Compare?playerIds=CD_I294828,CD_I993806&comparisonTab=h2h

He's going to give up money and be a cheap trade to bring in but that means he'll have an expectation that he'll play in and contribute to a good side, otherwise he's almost better off staying at the Crows and getting his cash. So what happens if he starts to struggle as most limited 31 year old key forwards do. He bounces in and out of the side with Weid? That doesn't help the team or Weid's development.

The only stat he clearly outranks Weideman in is goals where he's 2 a game v Sam's 1 a game. An extra goal a week is nice but I think Sam could get to a 1.5 goals a game pretty easily and can do more with bringing team mates in to the game and that's without even making a big leap in improvement.

We can't be operating under the expectation of a string of injuries, we have to at least assume a group of T Mc, Weid, Petty with some subpar but interesting options in J Smith and Preuss get through a fair chunk of the season. Give me at least 1 of the first 3 guys every week and pinch hit with one of the latter 2 if needed is what I'd do. Plus a kid or state league depth option with upside. 

If the current crop isn't working then I think we'll have to go hard at a permanent replacement and Jenkins is just wasting money and resources if that's the case.

He'll be 31, not chasing, not tackling, not crashing packs, bobbing up on twitter and SEN whilst playing for Casey.

I don't care if he cost 500k or 5k I don't see the appeal.

Take the chance with an athletic junior or state league player and save the cash for a shot at Ben King if Weid or Petty don't work out.

Took the words right out of my mouth DeeSpencer.

He's done. I wouldn't be surprised if no other club shows any interest. 1 tackle per game & 1 contested mark per game.....

Give me a break. The Melb recruiters are a bit smarter than that......(I hope)

One thing unmentioned is his debut in 2012 at the age of 23. So It's not as if he's been in the system for that long. Perhaps that could help longevity re risk of slow down. We just lost a 28 year old KPF just above peak age, that had only been in the system for 2 years. So it's fickle as to who can impact at what age, who can have a prolonged career and who can't. A proven track record of games played per season, goals kicked and a lack of injury history could work in his favor, even for a 31 year old next season.

Crows look like turning over a lot of senior players this trade period. Will be very interesting to watch.

Jenkins, Betts, Ellis-Yolman, Jacobs, Greenwood Crouch and Keith. With Ottens and Douglas finishing up as well.

Bottom 4 next year, you reckon, mate?

Often happens when you lose that much experience.

Depends who they replace them with I suppose.

Dont know about bottom 4.

They are looking at a young ruck from Port Adelaide, Billy Frampton. Not sure who else, but they will certainly not be quiet during draft week/s

It might just be me, but i feel that Weids doubts his own ability. Someone at the club needs to sit him down a continually show him his games in the finals last year.

 

Agree. He is a confidence player

 Whilst I agree the club can help with getting him in the right mindset, he needs to find needs an intrinsic capacity to get himself psychologically ready.

A poor mans Juice Newton. I'd rather we rookie Juice or Fevola. 

When did Juice Newton achieve anything at senior level like this?

-Josh Jenkins averaged two goals per game this year and booted at least 40 goals each season between 2014-2018.

Let the Crows pay his huge $$$ pay rate.  They are rabble.  No club should take him on, not even the Suns.  

They'll be paying at least some if it either way, Jay Clark reporting this morning that if a club picks him up they may get him for as low as 200k per season.

At $200k per season it is probably worth a late pick. Not much risk involved.

Hold on . Didn't Juice Newton kick 5 goals in the first quarter against North at Etihad one year as well as take what should have been the mark of the year in the same game??

He kicked 3 against Carlton once. Does that count? That was a great grab though.

A whisper or two that JJ might be heading to the filth but surely they'd need to offload Cox ...or someone, if that is the case.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell
