Sam Weideman + contract

Recommended Posts

Today's Whisper in the Herald Sun "Which small time manager is set to make life difficult for one Melbourne Club over a promising young key forward, given his new contract demand has a seven at the start of it?"

Weideman is a promising key forward, from a "Melbourne" club and has small time manager Ben Williams from players ink.

$700k per year.... it must be an early April fools joke.

With the departure of Hogan this was always on the cards - wait for the Collingwood rumours to surface soon

So far he's kicked 17 goals in 21 games and his ruck work, as we saw last week, needs a lot of work.

The Pies wouldn't offer more than 300K a season for him on those figures, but if they are really keen then I'd suggest we offer a direct swap for Mason Cox!

He better start clunking more marks and kicking more goals otherwise I'd be happy to make a trade. He has lots of potential but that is all he has shown at the moment. 1 good final does not write your own contract.

Right now that figure has one too many zeros.

Going by how their forward line worked last night, they don't need him.

lol. you lot. why is everyone talking about his statistics to date when it's clearly about his potential going forward? He has shown he has potential and lets be honest, he is probably worth that amount to us. Especially with the loss of Hogan.

Weid's potential is there and he would need to produce a good consistent block of games this year and score many goals 50 plus to be thought of a 700 k contract.  He is level headed and knows what he has to do to earn respect  and his keep on the field.

Never say never however he is well entrenched at  the Demons.

Maybe not totally out of the question if he plays well,  but need to see how the season unfolds. (Boyd got a mill a season or something didn’t he? Probably 30%+ less than what Lynch gets)

Need to lock in the key drivers ( particularly key forwards) and he could turn out to be one. Must admit l hate it when he goes into the ruck.

Bit of a dopey ‘stir the pot’ leak at this point though IMO ,as it’s all up to the Weid.

Nothing much to see ATM ,he would need to lift performance to get many suitors ( if indeed its him they are talking about) on output to date.

On the other hand imagine $700k would get you a very good replacement for him.

 Collingwood don't have the money, going by the fact Beams caused team mates to take a haircut last year.

Luckily Weeds is a level headed young man. He will take a contract at 350K for a couple of years and back himself to develop and get a better deal.

the rest is media/manager BS

If Cox plays well Collingwood will not be interested. There will be interest from other clubs irrespective of how well he plays.

My thoughts are that he will back himself and take a two year deal at around $4-500k and punt on the next deal as his payday.

that'd be a terrible deal if he was a manager; below the average wage

he's a key forward, which are pretty rare, and our whole structure is built around him and t mac

i'm very confident he'll sign up

I would have hoped that the Weed would be on a performance-based contract - he is there to kick goals and he ain't got none, yet. He is not worth that amount. Preuss could do it all for him and then some with a little practice. Weid is not in the league of Jacovich, Lyon, Schwarta, Bennett or even Whacko Jacko who in relative terms did bigger things for lesser amounts, more often. I, for one, don't think we need him that much if we could settle our game style and use the current crop of players more wisely at selection.

Mods, how can this thread remain open?  There is no indication that this "whisper" is about Weideman, and is only going to cause unnecessary arguments what the player is worth.  It's also showed that people will take personal potshots at the kid.

This thread will get out of control even more than what it is presently.

My guess is that if he kicks 50 plus goals this year he will be signed for around 600k. (2 year deal).

Hogan's departure freed up some money on the salary spreadsheet which took a hit last year at the extensions of Tom McDonald and Brayshaw both of which were almost certainly contracted at a higher figure than what we would have budgeted for a year before

    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

    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.

    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
