I am way out of the loop, is Weid out of contract?? I thought he had a year left.

I reckon he is the future, i wouldn't be letting him walk, but we will see what happens.

Ideal situation is for Weid to want Collingwood, and North to be keen through PSD, so Collingwoods pick won’t do it & they have to deal.

Welcome B Maynard to replace an ageing Hibberd.

Yep agree with this

19 for weid is a fantastic deal. 

I really would be stressed about our lack of back up key forwards however. 

I think this is the strange thing with Weid.  He's not in our best 22 so unlikely to attract a pick that good.  At the same time if he goes, we have no backup forward unless one of Smith / Petty / Tomlinson can do it but none are proven. 

So we trade Weid and draft a kid to develop with whatever picks we have.... but Weid was a top 10 pick (we won't have something that high) and has already built his body and knows the gameplan.  Everyone knows most key forwards take a bit of time.... what if he's about to click?

I want him to stay for insurance / our future... but if I as advising him I'd prob tell him to look for other options as he only gets a game now if Brown / TMac or Jackson are injured and even then it's not guaranteed (eg Melksham playing when TMac was injured)

So Weid is more value to another club than ours, that means we can use the value we get in other ways like Cerra ... moneyball at its best ... re a back up forward, yes we will need to think it through but .. we can actually play with just the 2 tall's rather than 3 ... we can also deploy Petty or Tomlinson forward ... we can also trade in a mature forward like Adelaide's Lynch or Carlton's Casboult for a pack of chips (or even text Jon Patton about this availability) ... would we prefer to keep Weid playing the 2's or get Cerra who will help our 1's?

Lynch would be okay, Caboult is cooked, Patton - you've got your hand on it (or is it his?).

If we traded Weid we would immediately be looking for a replacement- we have no back up talls for the forward half and ours all have injury history and are old.

But why would you waste one moment of your life worrying about how to replace a bloke who can rarely get a game and when he does he brings a trampoline chest and headless chook leading patterns?

We need to trade this bloke while we can still get something in return.

Because I don't think he is a headless chook, and I think his hands will come good, and he is a beautiful kick. I also think he can tackle hard and exert fwd pressure which is a must. I just don't see anything else on the market with the same (potential granted) upside. If you know of another King or Mckay going early 2nd round let me know, everyone else is pretty meh from my POV.

It would want to be a good deal for Weid AND he would have to be driving it. He was pretty solid in 2020 and had a stress fracture in his hip which ruined his preseason this year. The guy is clearly a real confidence player, I'd still love to see what Goody and Choco can get out of him next year with a full preseason.

He's just coming to the years when he is going to be at his most capable of making an impact. He needs to look for a club that will give him a shot at the full forward role for a couple of years. We aren't ready to do that till maybe 2023 so he should look around and we should value him highly. 19 is about right.

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
