Farewell Brodie Grundy


Ouch!

If a player retires, their salary still falls under the cap. It prevents rorting by clubs. So people suggesting that BBB and Tmac should retire have no idea. That's the equivalent of approx. $1.3 mill of dead money in our cap.

Grundy has currency. Trade him.

No idea ??

Try the mirror.

Retirement through injury invariably a negotiated outcome. 

The figure(s) wont be anything to worry over.

I was excited when we acquired Grundy. I thought it was a good idea. He was kind of a replacement for Jackson who although didn't kick many goals, did spend a lot of time playing as a forward. Now with the problem of not having Tmac and Bbb for various reasons, the need for Grundy to help our forward line grew dramatically. He's good Rickman but where Max dominates his his incredible around the ground marking abily. Grundy doesn't have this skill and it not only makes him a lesser ruckman but even less as a forward.

Not playing at this point of the season is not good for him in playing finals. If our talls in our  forward line work he won't play next week either. Especially from the Casey reports I've heard.

It was very windy at Casey today which didn't help Grundys chances. He didn't do much at all though

out of interest, should grundy be traded, i wonder if we are eligible for a draft pick and if so, what that would be? in the 20s?

Whatever Port's 2nd rounder is I reckon

IF Grundy was traded, he wouldn't be a Free Agent (attracting a compensation pick) so any draft pick and/or players would be negotiated between Melbourne and his hypothetical new club.

I was going to give you a thanks emoji, but then I thought to myself that 90% of Demonlanders would surely know you don't get a compensation pick if you trade a player, that it's just a Free Agency thing 😀

I feel a bit for Grundy, but he did choose us, he could’ve gone to a least half a dozen clubs.

To he’s credit he hasn’t  complained yet, he needs to knuckle down now & get his spot back.

Would be pretty poor to give up after one season

Definitely a good opportunity to rest a few and bring in some fringe/developing players to see what they've got.

Norf are back in contention for pick #1, so they probably won't even put up a fight.

If he stays, I'm OK with having a solid back-up plan for Max, who is into his thirties, and has a history of long-term injuries.

If he goes to Port, I'm OK with it as we can move a big contract off our books, and potentially get a player like Georgiades coming back the other way.

i was more referring to a pick trade, obviously not a compensation pick..

My Pie supporting mate says he heard / read an interview with Graham Wright, he apparently said that should Grundy be traded that they are no longer responsible for part of his wage. Citing their deal was with Melbourne not a third party. I wouldn’t have thought it mattered. Do the Pies have a case on a technicality in his contract?

They don't have draft picks, used them all up for Horne-Francis.

Future 1st rounder and 2nd and/or 3rd round pick swaps as well? If allowed under the trade/draft rules.

Yes. Last real chance before finals.

Not sure l agree on rest for anyone.

(Yes l know I’m a hard a..e)

There is a weeks rest after the last home and away game and we are still in the hunt for 2nd Spot.

Dont think I’d be leaving the door ajar to anyone to knock us off.

I think that would be correct. We'd then take on the remainder of what his new contract is.

ie; $950,000 is the apparent figure

New club $600,000

We pay $350,000

Collingwood $0

But I'm probably wrong. Its still a lengthy contact too from memory?

Doesn't matter, he won't be traded.

    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

    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?
