We should offer a long term contract and see what happens. Worse case it puts Collingwood under more salary cap strain. One of best kicks in the comp on the other wing to Langdon, yes please.

JOSH DAICOS (COLLINGWOOD)

Draft picks:
 Early-to-mid second-round pick
Value on open market: $400,000-500,000 per season

Still most likely to stay at the Pies on a multi-year deal but will have to knock back bigger offers in order to do so. The 21-year-old has enjoyed a breakout 2020 campaign, playing all but one game and proven himself as one of the best kicks inside 50 in the competition.

Agree totally, Collingwood have some very good players out of contract and are going to struggle to get them all under the salary cap. Either one of Daicos or Mihocek would be very handy, both would be even better.

Would be nice to see Daics Jnr and the Weed booting us to a premiership

if only to hear the immortal words "we was robbed".

Yep I proposed this in another thread.

The Pies have to pay big money to Moore, De Goey and Mihocek.

Someone has to make them pay up big time on Daicos or let him walk. Offer him 5 years at 700k, let's see how loyal he is then.

He has shown that he is becoming one of the competitions best rovers he has all the attributes to be to Collingwood what Shuey is the Eagles if he was every available I would go after him. His brother is a Carlton supporter so I am surprised Carlton haven't made a play they seem to have thrown money at everyone else.

The big question is why no club selected him before pick #57 which allowed him to go to Coll as F/S for peanuts!  Massive free kick to the pies!

He’d only shown flashes in his junior days, his absolute ceiling was 2nd round.

we had some interest and probably would have bid with our next pick, which was a couple of selections after he went.

Don’t think he will leave, but shouldn’t stop us from kicking the tyres. We could definitely use his his disposal inside 50. At the very least it might result in someone else falling out.

Daicos played very well last night. The pies have cap constraints so I don’t think its wishful thinking to have go. Can’t see it happening mind.

Mihocek on the other hand could be gettable. Most underrated player in the league. Someone has to be squeezed out at the pies and it could well be him.

He won't leave Collingwood - he's a Daicos!

He has been very impressive this year and is exactly what we need with his kicking skills and dash around the forward half. I assumed he just got a game because of his family name, but he's had a huge impact this year and is a reason why the Pies have made finals. Would be perfect for a wing opposite Langdon. Won't happen though!

Can't see a Daicos leaving Collingwood unless he's delisted, which won't be happening.

Terrific player and I'd love to get him, but we need to be realistic.  It's just not going to happen.

Exactly.  Why would he leave ? His little brother is coming onboard for 2022. 
 

 Move on

Absolute fairy tale of a topic.

As if a Daicos is going to leave Collingwood, Especially when his brother is about to join him.

Offer de Goey the world (I haven't been paying attention to his criminal charges so there's obviously that to consider). Worst off: the Pies have an extra cap-squeeze and we can maybe pry a Daicos or Mihoceck loose, or: we have Trac and Jordan in a single team which I don't think has ever happened in the history of football as to two top-five game-breakers.

There’s a difference between almost no chance of happening and not worth trying.

Offering a 3rd round pick for Dusty Martin isn’t worth trying. 

Combining picks 20, 40, 60 and 70 for pick 1 isn’t worth trying.

Daicos is out of contract. Collingwood have a tight salary cap limiting the amount they can pay him. Assuming we have cap space there’s no harm in offering him a deal that would tempt him that reflects the value he could give us. ‘He’s a Daicos’ is not a valid reason not to make him an offer.

    CANCEL CULTURE by Whispering Jack

    I’m not one who likes mixing politics with sport but it should be noted there have been some unusual trends in the world of sport lately. In the US, Major League Baseball announced that it’s moving the 2021 All-Star Game and the 2021 MLB Draft out of Georgia, in response to the state’s new voting law. Over here, there’s a move to force Carlton to change its club song because the original song on which it was based (written in the late 1800s) has “racist connotations”. The Blues maintain the curr

    MOGGIES MASTERED by George on the Outer

    They say that herding cats is an impossible task but not for the Melbourne Demons who through relentless pressure, scored a commanding 25 point victory in Round 4 over Geelong at the MCG. The team that missed the AFL finals only once in the past dozen years were shown up by the new Demons of 2021 who have recorded their first 4-0 opening to the season in 21 years! Melbourne knew what was coming, and it was Geelong who were shown up for their inability to adapt to the 2021 style of foot

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    MAX IN SPACE

    Demon skipper Max Gawn is one big unit at 208cm and lately he’s been standing even taller. We already know that he’s unstoppable in the air when going for a mark but with three consecutive victories to open the season, you might say that he has his head in the clouds.  And that is literally true thanks to a fan at Demonland.com who recently arranged for our big ruckman to go even further than the clouds but way beyond to the edge of space and into the stratosphere.

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs. The end result was much more than an embarrassment for the club given what was at stake at th

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f
