Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.


Farewell Brodie Grundy


Ouch!

Recommended Posts

the thing with recruiting collingwood players, is even when they make the squad of 25 its headline news. its just ridiculous week after week how many non-stories are posted about Grundy.  The stories this week are he may or may not be back, riverting news. Geez I hope he plays in a finals against them and we win.

Grundy for georgiades is a fair swap I reckon.

that said I would be very surprised if Grundy is traded. He’s Maxys successor so we’ll just create a problem for ourselves if we trade.

An AA ruckman for a not proven forward with an ACL injury is a fair swap? 

Ok Peter Bell, tell me more.

Comparing me to Peter Bell! I'm deeply insulted.

Not proven is little unfair i reckon. He kicked 32 goals in 2021 and 23 last year (although he was wayward and kicked a lot of behinds. his yips are fixable though). Was a first round pick. Eagles were apparently chasing him last year. At 22, he's much younger than Grundy. ACL's are far from career ending compared to back in the day. obviously any trade subject to a proper medical 

And i reckon he'd be playing in our first team at the moment while Grundy languishes at Casey.

It means that they don't have a lot of faith in Tomlinson playing well consistently, and are happy to throw Petty forward this week, then next week drop Tomlinson when he is slightly below par and swing Petty back and put Grundy forward after two strong weeks in the VFL.

Edit: I think Tomlinson has been pretty good, but based on selection patterns this year the selection pattern don't think he is the answer.

Damian Barrett( I know I know) on the radio just now, very adamant the Grundy is gone this trade window. Sounded more like he has info that’s the case other than just speculating. 

It could be a complicated deal if it happened, as Dees won’t want to pay any of his contract and Pies money might not be transferable.

He did mention that the payment structure would be complicated to work out by was confident it wouldn’t stop the deal from getting done. 
Really if he does decide to leave it would be down to his management and whatever club decides to take him to sort that end of it out as I think we would be reluctant for him to leave.

He can't leave without MFC letting him go, Dunkley wanted to leave the Bulldogs a couple of years ago, Papley wanted to leave the Swans a few years ago, neither would agree to let these players go.

This was mentioned in the media a few weeks back. If correct sounds like some sloppy paper work. Not quite as bad as the Dogs and Pies with Treloar but up there.

Hopefully they covered off the scenario plus others such as smoothing out his contract.

As salary dumps become more common it's perhaps time that the agreements became less opaque

The thing is, we need leadership in the forward line.  Brown was providing that.  Petty is still young, and hasn't played enough in the forward to provide leadership.  

Melksham is capable.  Has the experience plus finals cred.

Why, I don’t think we ever considered he would leave if he came to us.

Better to get rid of BBB and TMac really.

Grundy will likely play 1st ruck for MFC in good time and can be a "ruck rover" in the interim if Goodwin can fix the line up forward.

Fortunately he's the coach, not I

Both BBB and Tmac have contracts for next year and I don't see anyone taking them.

    SCRUTINY & RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the week when preseason training melds into scratch matches with other clubs, is the first marker for the beginning of a new season, then this has certainly been a torrid opener for the Melbourne Football Club in its campaign to remain a leading AFL premiership contender in 2024. The Demons were already under enormous scrutiny from the media and football’s fan base (including their own) after consecutive straight-sets finals exits, with Clayton Oliver’s well documented woes, the Joel Smi
