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.

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.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th
