Officially gone with this news.

Even if nothing eventuates from this meeting the fact that we met pretty much means he's gone.

Gone to who and for what ?

I hope the club comes up with a better suited alternative to Grundy. At his best he’s been a bloody good player and probably still has a lot of good football in him but neither Grundy or Max are good enough as forwards to make that combination work for us in my opinion.

At the moment, Grundy's contract is an albatross around Collingwood's neck.

I am not so generous a man to relieve that suffering without a few certainties; he can recover from his injury, we don't take on more than half his wage, we give very little in draft capital, and it doesn't impact our ability to get a Georgiades/Naughton/ready to go tall forward.

I think the albatross is more likely to be a goose

Noooo Grundy FCS!   A tall contested marking KF should be our biggest priority.

Who knows but we wouldn't be interviewing ruckmen if we thought there was a chance he was staying.

We might if we weren't entirely sure he was staying. ;)

Yes we would it’s called understanding what all our options are to optimise the outcome whether he stays or goes 

A meeting with Grundy doesn’t confirm anything at this stage

It's pretty clear Jackson's gone even before we met with Grundy. It's now just a matter of what we can get back for him and what we use that on.

I still don't get it from Freos point of view but I guess they can't pass the opportunity to get high level talent in the door when it presents.

Oh and I'm not keen on Grundy at all. Let Collingwood suffer with that contract stuffing their cap for a few more years.

We got Jackson after tumbling down the ladder and he helped us win a flag. He's now going to leave, seemingly for personal reasons, which I cannot for the life of me understand. However we can now set ourselves up with 2 very high draft picks, some astute drafting and maybe a raid on a tall KPF. Once upon a time all the drama was on the field, now to keep us entertained they've extended the drama to a whole of club experience with player movements used to keep us salivating 12 months of the year. Personally I find the whole thing a bit contrived but hey Jackson for 2 really good forwards and a recruiting coup thrown in....why the hell not!

Going after Grundy makes sense as he is a ready made, experienced ruckman to suit our window which is right now. Starting back at a rookie or 23 year old non experienced ruckman would create a weak link.

Also isnt it very odd to meet a player from a rival club just before finals in which we could face off against??

He won't be a free agent though. We will need to trade for him. What are we going to have to give up? One of our first rounders?

2 really good forwards taken with very high picks? I hope you take photo's of the secret Friday morning r23 meeting between Adam Simpson and Dogga in an airport lounge when he arrives "early" for Geelong and we fly up to Brisvegas

    PICKET FENCE'S TRAINING REPORT REHAB  Clarry, Max, Farris-White, Melky, Matt Jefferson, Jakey Lever, Joel Smith & 1 Other I couldn't place. Glad to see the Club being ultra cautious with Clarry's thumb BUT the fact he is still troubled with it is worrying (God I hate Selwood) Got there at 10.50 to see Full match Simulation Game between the Blues and the Whites. Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    WIZARD333'S TRAINING REPORT I went down and it was locked out for first hour but could see through fence then allowed in. Max Gawn ran laps — it looks like a 3 to 4 week injury.

Jake Lever on bike and walking up n down stairs, yelling out as he does. Melky copped a niggle so ran laps but

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
