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.

you don't pay for output tho, you pay for potential

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.

    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
