The media are stating that De Goey is likely to go to the Cats or Saints if he leaves Collingwood. I question whether we should look at him.

Negatives are obvious. (He is a DH and hard to manage).

Pros are:

  • He is one of the better players in the competition on his day
  • He fits our need to bolster the forward half
  • It looks like he will not command ridiculous money
  • He is a free agent
  • He is the same age as our core stars (Petracca, Oliver and Lever)

Obviously we won't have room in the cap if Jackson and Brayshaw end up staying and so we won't even consider recruiting De Goey until they let us know what they are doing. And any compensation if Brayshaw leaves will be eroded.

Let's see - do we want a player who is a serial [censored] with no respect for anyone but himself?  Who has blown chance after chance whilst acting like a substandard human being?  Who has been accused on multiple occasions of sexual assault or harassment of women?  

Big fat NO!

I'd imagine if he has another major indiscretion, the club will consider sacking him.

There was was a lot of negative PR he put the club through.

 

They should have sacked him when he was first charged with the 2015 sexual assault.  I'm surprised he wasn't sacked after New York.  The fact after Bali they still haven't sacked him is endemic of the cultural cancer at Collingwood, where players in their AFLW program campaigned for the club to do something about it and were ignored.  No thanks.  Steer clear.

8 wins in a row.

Numerous players seem to want to go there.

Obviously culture isn't winning their games, or losing them.

PS: I am not saying we don't want our club to have a good culture, obviously we do.

Hang on. What’s your benchmark for perfection? Not having ever sexually harassed/assaulted somebody?

We just had a thread on Taylor Walker of which 80% of the posts were about the culture killer that he is. It depends where you want to draw the line with culture but I’d have thought this was in a similar boat.

In the last few years at Collingwood - 

- Allegations of racism resulting in the departure of the President and Coach, and the "Do Better" report

- Key member of their cheer squad charged with pedophilia

- Members of their AFLW squad complaining about the club's inaction over De Goey

- De Goey

I don't give a rats if they've won 8 in a row.  If Melbourne signs up De Goey they will lose me as a member, and I've been a member for 37 years. I'm sure I wouldn't be the only one.  I'd like to think our club has standards. We can do better culturally than signing up DHs like De Goey.

I never said anything about getting De Goey, I was just saying that with their rotten culture they have won 8 in a row and so maybe it's not culture that wins games.

You might not give a rats about a team winning 8 in a row, but I bet their supporters do.

PS: I am certainly not defending De Goey and I wouldn't want him with us.

As for Sparrow and Harmes. They are both good players but they are not De Goey level talent.

Talent is only one aspect of what makes a very good AFL player. Colin Sylvia, Harley Bennell, Jack Watts, and Liam Jurrah were all gifted, but that was about it. De Goey is exactly the same. They turn it on once every 4-5 weeks, and maybe only for a quarter. They dislike doing the difficult things like gut running, tackling, and other pressure acts that coaches love. Every week, Sparrow, Harmes, ANB, and Spargo do all of these things. You are correct that these players lack DeGoey's talent, but I believe I know what type of player Goody would prefer. It doesn't help that he is also a DH.

McClure said he would be amazed if De Geoy was at the Pies next year so sounds like this might not be the usual gossip

If he was a tall fwd I'd maybe think about it. but he has shown time and time again he only cares about himself

Plenty of ability but doesn't have the temperament or professionalism to fully realise his undoubted talent. Partying in Bali during the bye shows where his priorities lie. Plus, he seems to be a [censored]. Big no from me

That said culturally we should be able to accommodate and get the best out of wayward characters. Not too many all at once though. Perhaps a quota of one. And if I did have to pick one undesirable to include in the squad it would be Toby Greene. How much better would our forward set-up look with him playing there. He’d be hard work keeping him on the straight and narrow (off-field and on) but I reckon he’d be worth it. He is signed up with the Giants but who knows when he’ll commit his next indiscretion and perhaps become available

Tall forwards are our clear number 1 priority.

Backup and developing rucks an obvious number 2.

Depth in our outside mids at 3. 

He doesn't fit any of these.

He is not essential to our needs, Id rather go for their Ruckman.

Cameron or Grundy?

Not sure I would go either unless we definitely lose Jacko or if Gawn is going to play permanently forward which I wouldn't be a fan of.

Best case: He becomes a manageable issue internally and makes us marginally better because we somehow find a way to integrate someone of his style into our existing team by replacing a player (Fritsch, Jordon, ????) who is currently doing that at a reasonably high level. This takes us from competing for a flag with a decent chance of winning it ...... to also competing for a flag with marginally better chances of winning.

Worst case: He can be managed and turns our club into a circus, taking human resources away from the other players as well as salary cap resources, and we are no longer competing for a premiership. This takes us from competing for a flag with a decent chance of winning it ...... to not competing for a flag.

 

I just don't understand why you'd take that bet. The outcomes are so asymmetric.

De Goey could replace Sparrow (on current form), Bedford, Harmes, or Melksham and we would be better.

How many players in the competition are 20 possessions and a goal per game? Maybe 10?

I will take Harmesy over De Goey every day Thankyou

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
