The Brayden Maynard Thread

Rather target someone who is tough and can kick goals 

Our back six is not our weakness IMO 

I do rate Maynard though 

We lack serious depth in the small defender department. Hibbo is 32. Salem is elite. Hunt is meh. Jetta is finished. 
If we lose one of Hibbo or Salem to injury we are in trouble. 
Maynard can defend and attack. It’s a good combination and his age profile fits perfectly into our list. I would definitely pursue him. He’d be second on my list to Merrett.

In the form he's in I'm sure there isn't anyone here trying cancel Hibbo, but at his age, that cliff can come quickly (think Nev) and I think it would be better to bring in quality replacement options before we have a hole in the armor. 

If we get him and Hibbo's still going strong, then perhaps that provides an oppertunity to play someone like Rivers or Salem further up the ground?

If Hibbo is going strong Maynard can replace Hunt and make us instantly better. I also believe Rivers should end up on the wing eventually.

With you Jaded. On Monday's form I'd take him in a heart beat. He is strong and tough which a few of our forwards found out and didn't want to go near him. Also his disposal is OK

I tell you what, I'd have preferred Maynard played FOR us and not against on Monday. Played a super game. 

Not sure if we could/should pay the required $$$ for him, but the age/skill profile (with some disposal improvement) fits nicely. 

Solid replacement for Hibbo, but would be interesting if he stays.

Not happening, according to his manager

MAYNARD CLAIM CATEGORICALLY DENIED

Brayden Maynard’s management has categorically denied there is any truth to AFL great Brad Hardie’s claims the gun defender will request a trade out of Collingwood at year’s end.

Hardie made the sensational claim on 6PR radio this week that Maynard “will be playing for the Melbourne Football Club next year” despite the 24-year-old being contracted to Collingwood until the end of 2022.

Maynard’s manager, Tom Petroro of TLA, told foxfooty.com.au there was categorically no truth to Hardie’s comments.

Coming off a career-best season in 2020, Maynard is once again proving a vital part of Collingwood’s back six and played a decisive role in the side’s upset win over Melbourne on Monday.

He’s set to become an even more significant part of the side’s defensive setup with news teammate Darcy Moore will likely miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Lying is the second language of the AFL and player managers lie and talk as much spin as politicians. Lots of players change clubs at the end of every year with speculation about most of them half way through the year and it’s very rare a player manager ever says anything other than there fully committed to the club. Hope the club is into him big time.

What is his manager supposed to say while he is contracted? i wouldnt read anything into it. If Maynard wants out there are two things we need to sort out:

1. Draft picks and/or player trade. They will want a first rounder for sure, but he is not worth that so i would go Future 2nd rounder and possibly throw in Weideman for good measure. 

2. Salary Cap. If we rid ourselves of Weid and Jones retires that maybe enough to scrap 500-600K/year. We may need to think about retiring Jetts as well, but i like the fact of him staying around to mentor the young indigenous players - Jetts seems to be a stand out guy that would inspire some of the younger players, which is great culture building that you cannot buy. The other factor is that the Pies are a long way off from playing in finals whilst we are in prime position to contend.

I wasn’t all that interested in Maynard until Mondays game but he Pendleton and De Basher were the difference between us and them. Doubt that we can get him but I wouldn’t be against bringing him in.!!!!!

Saw he's put contract talk on hold till they name a coach 

Reckon he'd be worth having a crack at not a bad kick got some hardness about him and would die trying to win a flag

Has some brain fades but some on the list have the same tendency

Should get his brother to nudge him to our door

He hasn't put contract talks on hold.

Hes still contracted until the end of 2022. Such a click bait article..

He would be a great addition to our program, would not say no at all to this proposal.

Must be some truth to it if Brad Hardie has been rattling off all these other developments at the Pies.

Doesn't his old man play a role down at the Scorpions?

    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. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
