Farewell Brodie Grundy


Ouch!

Recommended Posts

Alright .... now hear me out.

If we were to hypothetically lose Luke Jackson, and the MFC could convince Collingwood to pay part of the salary. Does this sound as stupid as it sounds to enquire about Grundy to play alongside Gawn? 

yeah... you are right it's stupid. 🤔

For me doesn't do enough to warrant such a salary,  They would want a club to pay at least $700k of a $1.2 million a year contract, Collingwood have just worked out they have been dudded once again.😂

Had one good season in a contract year and Collingwood as they tend to do are paying overs for players who don't deserve it.

Collingwood have no payment structure whatsoever. That's why continually find themselves under salary cap pressure.

He's 28 years old, will be 29 early next season. He does not have a marking presence and has not been effective up forward. He can only play number 1 ruck and he's on over a million bucks a year for another 5 years.

He doesn't fit our age demographic and would retire not long after Gawn. We need Gawn's replacement to be younger than Grundy, otherwise he is a very expensive stop-gap. If he had a presence up forward like Lobb or Marshall type, then I'd consider it. As he doesn't, I'd avoid and look for younger, cheaper, more suitable options.

it’s a No from me 

too many $$$ and wouldn’t fit in as our 2nd ruckman to Gawn 

No forward craft 

aim for Haydn McLean from the Swans.  Affordable cheaper dollars and can play as 2nd ruck or key size strong forward … and is gettable 

Haydn McLean is the one for me as well Spirit, he has great hands, is a big bugger and would be cheap.

The only time Gawn and Grundy on the same list would be a good idea is in Supercoach, and even then it wouldn't work if they were at the same club.

Most Urgent: Big bodied forward-ruck to support Gawn and any successor. (Like others, I lean to McLean)

Most important: True long-term successor for Gawn.

Would be a real tragedy to lose Jackson given how well he fits our needs, but the trade value and salary cap space would likely get us through the distress.

Grundy is the Best Ruck in the league after Max.  but it is way to much to pay for a 28yo second ruck.

Geelong and Essendon should be throwing the kitchen sink at him if they have any brains.

Grundy lobb or tex

I think we end up with one of them if Jackson departs

We will have 700 in the kitty and that's probably where it ends up. Grundy would need the Pies to pay 300 of his salary to get him off their books - or take a smaller cheque to come here with promise of being in contention

Why would the Pies need to pay Sideshow...to pay out his existing contract?

Yep - he's on $1m a year. Noone is going to pay that - if they want 700k of that back they pay 300 of his contract - same as what they had to do to get treloar off their books

The fact that he's now behind Mason Cox in the pecking order tells me all I need to know. 

But he's not behind Cox though..

He's out with a long term injury. Had he not be injured Cox would be playing VFL and taking calls from suburban clubs for next year.

Grundy is 20 x the player Cox is.

I wasn't aware of that. Thanks for clarifying dazzle.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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
