Interesting timing with Buckley stepping down but last week I was thinking about a Hibberd/Jetta replacement going forward and was thinking of Maynard and whether or not we'd have a crack at him, especially now given the unrest at the pies and with Buckley stepping down.

I've heard there a few unhappy mature-age players there and I know Maynard is friendly with some of our guys, Trac in particular from Metro days and obviously his brother Corey was on our list for a number of years.

Contracted until next end of next year but thought I'd throw it out there as I think he'd be a great fit and replacement for those guys I mentioned. 

Tough, competitive and in the right system like ours I think he'd flourish.

Thoughts?

I'm not convinced he's actually good. One of the great footy myths this bloke.

Absolutely we should be going after Maynard. Remember also his old man works for Casey Demons already.  Great replacement for Hibberd.

At 25, he's certainly in our age bracket. 

Depending on cost I'd go there. I'd equally trust Taylor to get us a second or third round gem that could play a similar position, so cost would be important. No more than a second rounder.

I think he is a super player and would compliment our backline beautifully. I just can’t see Collingwood letting him go and doubt we Could afford him.

Would be a great asset. Isn't Rivers primed to be the Hibberd/Jetta replacement though?

If we think of a healthy list for 2022 (and excluding Hibbo/Jetta for now): May, Lever, Tomo, Rivers, Salem, Hunt. I would then be looking at given game time to Bowey and Petty. So if we did bring in Maynard, who is he replacing from those 8 players?

would love him at the dees

future first round pick from 2022 would get it done OR - given that the filth are after 'points' for 2021 and picking nick daicos - would happily hand over the second round pick we currently 'own' (tied to brisbane) and third round pick (tied to hawthorn)

but i think he's easily worth a future first given he's only 24 and is a very, very good player

As important as a good lock down medium defender is I don’t think we can put more expensive resources in to a backline with May, Lever, Salem, Tomlinson and needing to keep Rivers and eventually Petty.

Probably have to target some cheap additions as well as look at Joel Smith/Deakyn Smith and an expanded defensive role for Hunt.

If we spend up on the backline it costs us either keeping or bringing in forward and midfield additions.

I don’t think we’d be getting full value from Rivers having him in the back pocket. Nor do I think he’d be that keen on that job. He spends half the game arguing with May and Hibbo. 

From the current back 7 I’d imagine Hunt is first in line to move to a more defensive role.

While I rate Maynard, I don't see him as a priority, especially given what he'd likely cost us in a trade and in salary cap.

Jetta's replacement should come from one of Bowey, Deakyn Smith or even Lockhart.

As for Hibberd's replacement, we still have both Joel Smith and Marty Hore on the list.  And even Gus is an option for that role. He's shown himself to be capable in the backline, and we could possibly get another wingman like Richards from the Dogs for less which would allow Brayshaw to potentially move to the backline to fill the void left by Hibberd?

I'd be happy to stick with Marty Hore, that bloke played really well in what was a shocking 2019 side. Imagine how well he could play with this defence around him.

Where have you been the last 6-8 months?

 

How unacceptable it is that someone isn't following the player satisfaction levels of mature age Collingwood players as closely as you are, and then has the nerve to ask a perfectly reasonable question in response to your assertions. Truly shocking.

I really like him as a player been watching him ever since he went head to head with Jesse Hogan in 2018 I think it was , didn't take a backward step that day despite the size difference

Good footballer, but not for us at this stage. He’d cost more than we’d want to spend in both trade value and his salary. Our defense is strong now, so best to focus our list build elsewhere as needed.

Definitely worth a look at the right price. He's the perfect age and has plenty of experience. But I agree with others that you shouldn't be paying too much salary or draft picks for a back pocket.

Not sure how far Deakyn Smith or Bowie are away from a debut. Defending at AFL level is, of course, much different to under 18s. And there's always Lockhart who just needs a decent run at it.

Maynard would not cost the earth in trade or coin. Is the perfect Hibberd/Jetta replacement. Is the right age bracket and style of player we like. Like Hibbo has some attacking bent but is a good not great kick but can play a serious lock down role something that we have lost with Jetta and will lose with Hibbo. Also gives us flex for Rivers to develop and possibly play midfield in stints in future years.

What are the mature age players unhappy about?

The way Collingwood leaked that the leadership group weren’t happy with Trelor is unforgivable. Whether it’s true or not is beside the point. Threw them under the bus!

    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
