Farewell Brodie Grundy


Ouch!

Gotta give him some credit, a few years ago he wouldn't have been able to pronounce the name Brodie Grundy.

I'm just sick of the media hacks saying things like "out of favour" and "sure to seek a trade" like they'd know anything.  Stick to your own lane, Lloyd, you know jack [censored] about a club you know nothing about, and all you're trying to do is keep up with fellow media hacks in trying to be relevant.

If Grundy doesn't come "back into the team in coming weeks", he'll seek a trade.  No [censored] Sherlock!  But that's not going to happen because he will be back in the team.

What I don't get is the talk from the media that MFC will have to pay Grundy's contract if he decides to move. On what planet do these morons live? IF Grundy were to request a trade, it is he who would want to break the contract, giving him no right to demand a contract payout. I do NOT think MFC actually want him off their books. He is a great backup to Gawn and will play games next year and beyond. The nonsense around Grundy is just another example of the media hatred for the MFC. It's all negative press for the Dees, as usual. Get stuffed media!

On top of Grundy playing forward for Casey, it was pleasing to see young Jefferson crash a few packs and do some nice things on the weekend.

Add a bit more muscle and bigger tank over summer and he's right in the mix for games in 2024

Keep it up young man - you and JVR are the future of our forward line!

Our forward line has worked best over longer periods when we have played 3 talls ... that means the 3rd defender picks up our resting rucks and we get goals out of Grundy the same way Jacko did. So Tomlinson stays put, and we bring in Petty as a forward and consider whether we swap Grundy/Schache for Brown this week or next week

If he leaves mfc make a net draft profit and we don't pay anyone extra cash. Media have lost it. Makes interesting story to suggest he will be paid by 3 clubs at once because it would be a first is all

Glad to see so many people waking up to how puerile the Media have become, and by the way i do not buy that they are only doing their job, because it isn't.

Let's study some teams who would feel as though their chances of a well earned flag could be in jeopardy. 

Although without mentioning names we beat them both, and coincidentally they both have heavily bias media connections..

Grundy and Oliver have big roles to play in how we finish this year and they know it...

That's the point people in the media are blindly ignoring.  If (and it's a big if) Grundy wants a trade, Melbourne would have to agree to it, and I don't see that happening.

Grundy is the perfect back up player for Gawn if or when he's injured. Why on earth would we trade a first class back up ruckman? Gawn will need his rests and Grundy will help out.

He's only been at the club for 5 minutes but already the media have him one foot out the door.

The greasy media hates us and loves to try and trip us up.

The media just want clicks.  Good stories about us are mainly read by MFC supporters only.  Bad stories are read by a fraction of all other club's supporters, especially big rival clubs and at times when we are a threat.  They do the numbers and work out where the most clicks are.

The Front Bar is now the only ‘footy show’ that I watch other than the actual games that are shown on tv. (Stating the obvious, to be entertained not informed)

Football shows have somehow morphed into being ‘tabloid tv’ if that makes sense. Can’t see this changing anytime soon.

Somewhat desperately perhaps, Demonland threads and podcasts is my  ‘go to’ for footy information nowadays.

I don’t know why some get so incensed at the media; they only, by and large, have a shallow look at all teams.

Here we have a ruckman playing VFL on $650k, learning enough forward craft to play in a deep finals run after a career famously struggling to play forward rules and take contested marks.

Neither is there nuance readily apparent that has been mentioned by many on here.

So until the narrative changes - and it may be this Sunday - this is where it is.

Your last paragraph also hillites that these Gawny and podcasts are all a threat to their potency, and informed information.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
