Trade and Free Agency rumours

I think the person I talked to was meaning that someone on a mil a year, should be worth a first rounder, in theory. Even if 300 of that is being paid by another club. It's not my view, but I think that's what he meant.

He did say they were trying to move Grundy, to trade in a GWS mid, so I guess that's where the bargaining power comes in, meaning they need Grundy gone to bring in the GWS mid

The person you are talking to is clueless. The mil a year was a bad contract, and has nothing to do worth his current worth.

Treloar is an excellent mid. Grundy has been usurped as no 1 ruck and is arguably behind Cox as 2nd ruck. 

Don’t care what the AFL say; don’t get him then. Let Coll pay him $1m to play VFL. 

The AFL would probably want to avoid that tbh…

Treloar is about the 30th best mid in the league. Grundy is a top 5 ruckman. Big difference in both position and Players worth.
You might not care what the AFL say, but it’s entirely relevant to the discussion. When he returns from injury he won’t be playing in the VFL. 

Again, I hope the interest isn’t strong from us and the trade doesn’t happen. If it does though then we’ll be sending a first rounder across unfortunately.

Pies would happily have Grundy suit up for the Western Jets next season if they absorbed the coin, they just want him off the books to grab Taranto 

Pies will get fleeced regardless where he goes to

I paid too much for a car, it only has a few years left in it at best. Currently un-driveable.

I expect you to pay heaps for it because it was worth heaps when new.

What do you reckon?

I say Collingwood need a dump (salary) they can pay $300k we swap a 2nd round tip for 3rd round (to keep nuffies happy) and deal done if Richmond doctors say he's ok.

And that is why the Pies are prepared to pay part of his salary. The first thing this guy said to me was that it was a bad contract, and we had already discussed that in the past. That's why they don't want him on their list. He also believes no ruck should be worth a mil, let alone Grundy. As I said he even thought Jackson was just "ok".

Treloar was best on for WB in last years GF. Grundy WAS a top 5 ruck. Who is just gone under the knife again, who they are desperate to trade out.

I don’t see what you see.

Treloar AND picks 26, 32 and 44

were traded for 

pick 14, and a future 2nd (pick 38)

The very flawed pick calculator values Treloar as a negative in that deal! 

Grundy on a 4 year 500k deal is an asset worth close to a late first or early second IMO. Preuss even got a 2nd. Grundy on a 5 year 700k deal is worth ‘thanks for taking him off our books, maybe chuck us a pick to save face’

No he's not. Not any longer anyway

The fact he's been injured and can't get past the VFL in 2022 illustrates this point succinctly

It's actually a huge risk for us taking on a hobbling ruckman for  5 years on $600k, or whatever the suggested difference is. We've got more to lose than the pies IMO, high risk/ high reward could go flat

But he was a negative, that’s the whole point.

Also thought Riccardi he may be a great option as a 195cm, forward who can play the Jeremy Cameron style lead-up role, then I looked at his statistics for 2022. Not up to it unfortunately. Of all the forwards out there that are potentially obtainable I think Nick Larkey stands out. Under contract but surely he’d be keen for a move to the Dees?

With regard to Riccardi, if you're going to go after 23-year-olds you'd want to make sure they can play the game.

In his first two games he kicked six goals and won rave reviews. Has pretty much done nothing since.

Take him to the Richmond doctor!!

Are Collingwood not playing Grundy to avoid aggravating an injury/'hide' his injury status.

Caveat emptor!

Might be more gettable if Clarkson doesn't go to North too, but it'd cost us. Larkey would be my number one target, outside of Ben King.

I heard Brisbane will need points to bring in young father/son prospects Ashcroft and one other (forget who he is).

Not sure who we would be interested in but they will need to trade for points and worth looking at.

Jaspa Fletcher is also a F/S who is expected to go in the earlier part of the draft.

They don't have enough points for both but will get a good comp pick for Mc Stay, bring some of their 2023 draft currency into 2022 and they will get the deals done.

As you say they may also trade out players for picks this year.

Which part of Larkey’s remaining 2 year contract makes him potentially obtainable?

This is a bit like someone in 2013 saying Nathan Jones is handy, surely he’ll move clubs.

Outside of Oliver or Petracca there’s not a player on our list who North would trade for Larkey. Nor would they be interested in a package of mid to late first rounders.

Correct. Zurhaar is gettable because he's out of contract, and has delayed talks till season end. If Clarkson doesn't end up at North, Zurhaar's chances of leaving are more likely.

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
