With those talking about Cotton on, all I Will say is that when Covid hit, some Geelong staff got jobs with the DC and worked shifts whilst stood down. But it is very much a place where friends of employees get work. So it’s not exactly a place where it’s how good you are but who you know and what schools/local teams you belong too.

And good on Jeremy for finding himself some part time work away from his Geelong gig.

So much for their policy of paying 'unders'.

That could easily shut the door on GWS matching (who reportedly offered a few hundred thousand less) so Geelong get to keep all those juicy first round picks.

Goodwin and the FD need to get themselves sorted, now. 

How much longer are we going to chant this mantra in tolerance and patience of proven mediocrity from Goodwin and the hallowed FD?

We have - or are - or maybe are not but remain forever disingenuous - conducting a resounding Club analysis through the top to the chewy-packet openers. If retention is being justified it ain't good enough.  The broom must come into play now, sweeping away the cause of recent histories at the MFC to embark on a total build of success 'in an instant'. 'Getting sorted' has already been an annual mantra for years and has proven to be far from achieving.

You have to wonder whether it is a variation on the Carlton play last year with Martin.

Load the first year so the departing club won't match it thus protecting your draft picks.

The system is so easily manipulated it's almost comical. The Cotton On job for his wife if true smells but I have great sympathy for the role of what are known in the expat world as "the trailing spouse".  So as long as the position is justified based on salary and experience I'll let that go.

and as long as her job is not some made up consultant or special advisor role either.

The thing Geelong have historically done well is not paying overs because guys are happy to head home. Sneaky little land package opportunity and they’re happy. 
 

If Cameron is on 900k the question is how much is that overs? Not sure it really is for a big key forward. 
 

Their list is light on depth, light on young up and comers who get big pay rises and heavy on over 30’s who have made good money for a long time. It’s a good strategy if you want to always be in contention and constantly restocking with talent. And with so many players keen to head down to sleepy hollow they have a steady supply

Why do Jeelong spell their name with a “G” is more the question...?

There's a lot in what you say....

The next European visit to the area was by the explorers Hamilton Hume and William Hovell. They reached the northern edge of Corio Bay – the area of Port Phillip that Geelong now fronts – on 16 December 1824,[23] and it was at this time they reported that the Aboriginals called the area Corayo, the bay being called Djillong.[11] Hume and Hovell had been contracted to travel overland from Sydney to Port Phillip, and having achieved this, they stayed the night and began their return journey two days later on 18 December

Agreed. If talent is going to keep bleeding out of feeder clubs then the Geelongs of this world need to pay with their own blood.

Damn right, well played GWS.

Well well well, I always thought @Sir Why You Little was acting like a 12 year old. BUT it turns out he is ahead of the curve and subversively requesting colonialist names be removed, nicely researched @Diamond Jim

With GWS matching it means the timeline is no longer in the FA period and falls into the Trade period ie until November 12, more than two weeks away.

It has the potential to hold up a range of other deals with GWS waiting to know what picks/players it gets back so it can decide list needs and whether to use those picks for other trades eg Preuss, TMac etc

To spell it with a D would be even more intriguing!!

Yes, potentially huge ramifications.

If Daniher, sometimes brilliant but quite fragile, netted Pick 7 (albeit by compensation, not trade) which equates to 1644 on the AFL Draft Value Index, then it can be argued that Cameron's value should be more.

Possible scenarios (equivalent value in terms of AFL Draft Value Index):

  • Almost Pick 3, GWS get picks 13, 15 and swap 30 for 37
  • Almost Pick 4, GWS get picks 13, 20 and swap 30 for 37
  • Pick 5, GWS get picks 15, 20 and swap 30 for 37

I was also thinking that if GWS get Ratugolea (who reportedly they want) they are less likely to want TMac.  And we could be waiting for GWS trades to do North (or other) trades.  Just guessing but we and other teams could be held up by GWS matching.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster.
