Goodwins gone through much more adversity then Roos did with us. Goodwins had his own challanges and rebuilt the list back up again. Without Goodwin, Oliver, Salem and Petracca are looking at new clubs.

Roos got what he came for and that was the $$. This whole notion of the club wouldn't be here without him is actually laughable.

100% with you Dazzle, i'm eating Humble pie for calling for Goodwin to be replaced, the players very clearly believe in him, and he's got these genuine guns of the comp to take less money and commit long term. and if the reports are true he's got us firmly in the mix for Z. Merrett as well. 

Just an FYI, the same person who told me Trac was in talks for an extension (admittedly he got the period wrong) did also say Luke Jackson will be signing on as well until the end of 2024. so fingers crossed for that one.

This afternoon the Club tabled an offer to CP that if accepted would essentially make him a Demon for life.  Stay alert as the offer is so attractive, we might get a prompt acceptance.   

The 7 years is correct, however, the $900k per season is well off. Thanks for your support dazzledavey36, as you know from past history, when I post a breaking story it is 100% factual.  

I'm absolutely elated by this. Tracc is a once in a generation player, and to resign him when big profile clubs with even bigger chequebooks are loitering about is a huge endorsement for the direction

No. For calling a Solid Source BS actually 

 

Many of us weren’t aware that goodwindees is a “solid source”. I was one who responded to his original post with “and you know this how?” because I had no clue as to his reliability. Having had many false prophets on this site, I think the response was reasonable (albeit a little on the harsh side...could have chosen a better adjective).

This is great to head mate.

Where is Weideman at?

Are you posting the word “Good” for no apparent reason every 10 or so minutes, or am I just imagining it?

Quite possibly I’m imagining it. Been up since 5:30am. That, coupled with the whole Fritta sitch, and the fact that I’m easily confused, makes a compelling argument for me to go to sleep. 

No. I was simply saying it was good that:

We decided to appeal fritters suspension

Trac signed for 6 years

Fritter won the appeal.

All good.

Got nothing on Weid unfortunately. i'll ask and see if i can dig up anything but it's all quiet, which makes sense, his value has the potential to sky rocket this season. 

I do see where the club is coming from though in wanting to see him play well consistently for a block of games before bringing him in, but also get why he'd be getting a bit frustrated. 

I'd be pretty shocked if he's not in the team in the next couple of weeks, and then signs on at some stage.

And may there be many more reasons to be posting "good" in the weeks and months to come.

All the goody goodness to the Demons.

The money Roos got from us was well spent. I shudder to think where we would be if he hadn’t come across. 
Maybe you don’t remember 2012-13 so well. 
never forget the Foundations when rebuilding 

May the Curse be lifted….

The Weid will get games, but for his own sake, he has to earn them and then keep his spot

Collingwood will want a bigger fish than Weideman. They didn’t clear all that cap for someone that has only shown a bit. 
 

Someone like Ben King (contracted until 2022) would be more what they’re after. And replacing an aging midfield.

They cleaned the cap room cause it was [censored]. There’s no master plan.

Going to go out on a limb and say @demonstonecares about spelling and grammar, at all times.

Great news about Trac, although I’m looking forward to it hearing it from the club and not notorious “news breakers” (bottom feeders), Browne and Morris

It was stated on MMM over the weekend that despite clearing the three players at the end of last season, Collingwood's salary cap is still extremely tight and a real mess. They will not have the room to chase a highly paid recruit.

They're not exactly a destination club at the moment either. (How the wheel turns.)

But they also have no draft capital to work with - hard to see how they do much this offseason.

Can't believe people are still buying the BS that Collingwood cleared cap space to target a big name free agent. 

They cleared cap space because they paid too many blokes huge money on long term contracts, not to mention the Beams debacle. Sure, they were shooting for a flag and nearly got there. But last year's clear out was fixing a god awful mess, not clearing space for a good player.

I don't understand your question.  To try and assist you, the figure of $900 k came from Ch7 report.

I'm just telling you that it is significantly more than that.

Adonski, you are one of about 5 other Posters that displayed some level of doubt about my original post along with HardTack, Rod Grinter Squad, CHF and Robbie57.

I never quite understand why other Posters express that type of doubt/negativity.  Is it envy or a feeling of inadequacy that some posters just have NO level of inside contacts?

 

Get over yourself hahaha

The Pies obviously need to find a key forward but their mids are even more of a priority with both Pendles and Sidebottom close to the end. They will leave a huge hole. Think someone like Treloar would be perfect for them.

Its not just draft picks though.

They will go into deficit having to pay a huge price for Daicos this year. But they have a list of around 40 players who they have shown they are willing to trade.

They will likely be going into a mini rebuild by years end. They will be moving more players on.

What a horrible season we are having....

It’s great to see he club looking like having some one club career players. We haven’t seen this since the Daniher days and you can see how close those players are still and passionate about the club.

I'm definitely not having a crack at Paddy, but here's a photo of seemingly two young blokes with the world at their feet. And yet by the hand of fate one is about to hopefully hit paydirt tomorrow, and the other has just put another hurdle in front of his luckless life.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
