Jenkins would be a bargain at $200k’s in our forward line

2 goals per game

Nobody was remotely close to that in 2019

Get the Crows to pay 70% of his ridiculous contract  

Thanks very much

If that was the case and he is a late pick, it’s a steal and it gives us time to develop ours and recruit  others. Would solve our needed extra key forward for a year or two.

Exactly as long as Adelaide pay the contract they signed off on. 

We need goals. It doesn’t have to look pretty. Goodwin is mad if he doesn’t take this guy if no one else is interested

Surely there’d be interest if Adelaide are willing to pay all of his wage minus $200k a season. I don’t know if I believe that figure, I reckon Adelaide are looking at offloading Jenkins and a significant amount of his salary as well. Or are asking too much pick wise?

Currently we have one established key forward, one developing key forward and a few mid sized makeshift forwards. Unless we have another alternative, given the Crows paying most of his salary and costing a late pick,  he is an easy fix to a problem, while looking  for a longer term solution.

This is exactly what they are doing with Betts at Carlton. Deal is almost done. 

Hope they can do it wit Jenkins

i would expect the sticking point for any prospective suitor is that the crows are prepared to trade him for bupkiss BUT they don't want to pay his wage

Since he is contracted they have two options, pay part of his contract or all of it.

You have to pay a portion of his salary, yes but what about the draft pick involved?

2 years left on his 800k contract?

Yes he would be at that price, No way they are going to pay 600k for a player on someone elses list without a decent draft pick in return.

Exactly, that was my point above. Either they’re asking too high a draft pick for him or the report Adelaide are willing to pay all but 200k is false.

Then they are stuck with a Player who wants out. 

Jenkins could be a trade for next week. 

We could get a bargain if we play it right

So we should be able to negotiate a reasonable $ amount and a reasonable draft pick.

Better than should. We hold all the Cards. 

I will be very peeved if we don’t have a serious crack at this guy for such a small salary. 

$200,000 per year is a rookie wage

Permanent Forward...

Yes, and look I understand the knock on him but if he can kick 40+ goals for us he can sit in the goal square all day long. How many forwards kick 40+ goals. Of coarse the risk is will he perform to that level, but at the right price it's worth the gamble.

He started his career as a 23 year old in 2012, so hopefully that bodes well for his longevity next year as a 31 year old forward, should we pick him up cheap as chips

40 goals is 40 goals. He can kick them from inside the goal square, it doesn’t matter. 

Our best return this year was 22 goals from Tracc!!

we are in no position to be pedantic about whether this guy kicks cheap goals. 

They are all worth 6 points! :)

    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

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ
