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.

 

I initially thought the same, so I thought I'd check the contract status of the Vic clubs.

Check the link below.  It can't be anyone else.

That said, it doesn't worry me.  There are often ambit claims in the beginning.

The Hun are also saying that, due to good list management, we have enough salary cap space to chase another top line target this off season.  

It also means we have the coin to sign Weideman to, what I would hope, is a reasonable deal.  They article mentions that May and Lever are both on around 600k or so, so if Weideman thinks he can get more than that at this stage, then he's dreaming.

But negotiations have to start somewhere.

Hey 'Chazz' if we really wanted to stop unnecessarily arguments we might as well close the site down.

Thanks for the link.  Only other name that would be considered a promising young key forward is McStay, but he's at Brisbane, not a Melbourne-Based club.

Like you, it doesn't worry me.  I can't see Weid going anywhere, and I can't see it costing us anywhere near that number to keep him.

So you don't watch footy then, 1 is a young key forward with potential , the other a key back with potential, only thing missing from both at the moment is consistency

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

what do you think he is worth over the next two years?

we can't have too many on big/biggish money.  if he wants to be part of premiership he can't be on 700K after 20 games

he should command at least $450k, and if his year is as good as we need it to be from him, he should be well within his rights to claim more than $600k

he's currently going at a goal a game, but we need to see him imposing himself on the contest etc.

fwiw, hogan was on around $900k this year if he's stayed with us, and charlie curnow signed a five year deal midway through last worth about $800k a year

so if weed really steps up and has geelong finals-like games on the regular in 2019, then $700k is well within the realms of possibilities

right now he has played 3 good games and a dozen anonymous games. if he has a consistent strong year then give him a bigger contract.  but right now he is no where near a 600K contract

I wasn't saying he didn't have potential, he is just one of those players with a head that annoys me. Like Sicily.

tall forwards are vital commodities and commany big bikkies as a result

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

If he kicks 50 we will finish in top 4. However I Struggle with him kicking 50.

tend to agree but if he's going to replace Hogan and score around 2 goals a game fifty or thereabouts is his target.

If we don't get 40 plus out of him I cannot see where the goals are coming from to make the 8... Petracca, Garlett the Smiths ??

I'd happily pay Weid $700k pa.

But it would be $450k base with incentives up to $700k total

20 games ✔ 50 goal season ✔ AA top 40 ✔ and a few other kpi's and $700k is yours!

IMO untill he plays at least half dozen games where he kicks 2-3 goals I would not renew his contract. He had a good last four of the  five games at the end of 2018. That is currently the sum total of his good games. He has shown promise at the end of last year. It is put up time in 2019.

If his manager is really asking for this, then close the door until the end of the year.

He is yet to establish himself as a best 22 player, I would hope the club holds off on negotiations until later in the season once he has some runs on the board and has played a full season of senior football.

    RED AND BLUEPRINT 2019 by Whispering Jack

    The rusty red of the McDonnell Ranges and the blue skies above them provided the perfect backdrop that summed up everything about the Melbourne Football Club’s 2019 season. It set out the perfect red and blueprint for the club’s horror year. The club’s previous season was one of great promise but it ended in a calamitous way in Perth with an 11 goal defeat at the hands of the ultimate premiership side, the West Coast Eagles in a game where the Demons’ first goal came early in the third quar

    WINDY DAY FOOTY by KC from Casey

    Windy day footy has always been the domain of those who play the game hard: on days when the breeze gusts all over the place and the ground has been sodden by recent rains, the player needs to get all aspects of his game together and be hard of body and mind, to concentrate and attack the football. The Casey Demons came out on their own deck in such conditions and under a mainly sunny sky and gave it a crack for half a game but they lost sight of the fundamentals of playing hard in difficul

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s
