Goddard: Trade Clarry

Recommended Posts

Not sure on the headline DL, what he actually says is:

"It’s a longshot, but Gold Coast should make Clayton Oliver an offer he cannot refuse. He’s exactly what the Suns lack, a consistent, genuine A-grader who they can build the club around for the next decade. He’s a $1-million-a-year player in the making, at age 21."

He does also mention the possibility of Gus to Freo, which could potentially combine with some supporter murmurs from both clubs and build, OR of course it could just dissipate.

That article is like reading Demonland the last 6 months. Everything in that article has been expressed here except the Oliver part.

Forget the ice baths... they would have to get a Le Tan sponsorship and dip him into a 44 gallon drum of sunscreen any time he was in QLD or he would be burnt to a crisp. 

P.S. I’m a ranga too so you know it’s true.

At least put a question mark at the end to mask the engagement... ;)

Chasing the coin doesn’t seem like it would be part of Oliver’s makeup, but who knows. It’s not like he won’t get a nice payday here anyway,

As far as the topic heading goes, it probably goes without saying, there’s no way the club would entertain a trade unless its hand was forced.

To trade either Oliver or Brayshaw would be the height of stupidity.

Why stop at Clarry, why not have a garage sale and sell the whole place?

Yes lets give up our good players to start yet another rebuild😣

That sort of approach worked really well for the Suns with Ablett, or Carlton with Judd, or Collingwood with Buckley, or Essendon with Goddard..........

OMG.  Why not just close the club down, or  sell off Ollie, Brayshaw, Gawn and anyone else who could help us get somewhere?

I am 100% certain that GC$ would love to have Clarrie.

Same article suggests we should target Bryce Gibbs. 

What are the odds of that happening?

Imagine how much money they’d need to pay Clarrie to go play for that disaster of a club in front of 7000 fans every week....be an Ablett size deal at least

I actually agree with most of his article. We will likely need to get used to godfather offers coming for Clarry. If this year is the outlier then I think we'll have nothing to worry about, but if we have another bad year then he'd be stupid to not to consider his future elsewhere. The sun's will always be able to over more money than us. He could get $1.5m or more up there. Not to mention the potential banana boat endorsement. But wins will always help us keep him.

His comment on Gibbs is spot on. Although I don't want him, he is at least the type we need, rightly Goddard suggests Gibbs as a discount Brad Hill. But Hill is a better fit for us on and off the field and for more years. Damn the expense

Plenty of common sense hung on a farcical central hook. (Well, central headline, anyway.)

To be fair, Goddard wrote the first part of the article, down to the Ed Langdon photo. Everything else is from Jay Clark. 

I don't see anything wrong with Goddard's contribution, and most of Clark's contribution has been discussed previously.

Clarry is Red and Blue forever. I think that I will give up watching AFL if he leaves Melbourne.

If that calibre of player leaves my team to play for an AFL franchise, it is almost time to close the door and walk away...

essendrug was a great career move for Goddard.

Being "red and blue forever" generally means you sign a 1 million a year contract at an expansion team. We should do everything in our power to make Oliver as disgruntled as possible at MFC so that he plays well and accepts less money to stay at Melbourne out of spite. nothing says "[censored] you" like signing 3 consecutive 1-year contracts for less money. We should also drop him a few times, and then see if anyone will accept a package of him + ANB for a second round pick.

    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
