Farewell Brodie Grundy


Ouch!

Recommended Posts

When measuring something...

Best to bring the right rule....and know how to read it...    Better still ...measure the correct aspect.

In light of his non-selection a few may need to revisit their confident dismissiveness they met the reports/opinions of Grundy possibly not playing finals, leaving the club in October, and the whole thing being a misguided venture.

They won't.

But I'm happy to bring it for them.

I saw mentioned in an article that Sydney may be looking at Grundy, but that would all

Would love a classic ruck circus with Hayden Mclean (a more forward-ruck option) coming to us given he's behind Amarty and Logan as a forward at Sydney.

A lot depends on Tom Hickey. If he retires then the Grundy-to-Sydney move would be high priority for them. If not, I don't see how Grundy+Hickey+Ladhams works, even if we got McLean in the trade.

The trade value assessment would be very complex. Speculating;

Grundy, 15 and 34

for

Mclean and 12

I think Goody has handled this whole Grundy situation perfectly. 

I think the plan was to give the Gawndy combo one more look before finals which was last week, and it simply didn't work. All good, I have no issues with giving it one more game and I think in hindsight if Goodwin had his chance again he might no have selected last week.

Barring an injury to Gawn from here I think we've seen the last of Grundy in red and blue as I believe he'll request a trade (would be silly not to for his own career sake).

Can well understand why we were able to pick him up after last night's game spray during debacle on  X .

He just didn't want to stay there.

So when Gawn retires in a few years or gets injured next year assuming Grundy is gone who is our backup? Who have we got coming through

Verral is a possibility depending on how he develops next season

Honestly is he were smart he'd take his paycheck and stick around. He's a walk-up Reserve, no questions asked. Gawn ain't playing 22-26 games a year anymore.

Doubt he'll accept that thoughh.

For half the price or thereabouts. Grundy isn't what he used to be since his injuries.

Yes, say Grundy goes at $650k and you replaced him with say Goldstein, for say $250k for one year, with promise of a few games to give Max a rest and to be ruck coach at Casey for our young ruckmen. You save $400k and get the young ruckmen developed by a great ruckman who is there if needed for his final year. You then do it again the next year, maybe with someone else and hope our young rucks are ready to go in 2 years.

Goldstein, Chol and McLean should be names on the whiteboard.

And Jeff White’s kid is a chance if he continues to develop. 
Great ruckman aren’t essential to winning flags. Max is so much more than a great ruckman which is why he is essential to us right now.

Bit of early crow there boys?

Seems Max is playing fit and well at this time of year compared with this time last year.  I think that's got to do with the ruck minutes he's shared with Brodie throughout the year, ruck minutes we wouldn't have been able to confidently put into a third stringer.  So there's that contribution from Brodie in the bank.

I noticed that Mason Cox came on last night and played with a purpose to put his name in front of the Collingwood selectors for the first final, and we're likely to be their opponent.  Are you completely happy for Max to go solo against Cameron and Cox if that's the way it turns out - particularly with Cox's tendency to try to hurt Max?  What if we lose and face Carlton in week 2 with Pittonet and TDK vs a beaten up Max, again solo?

There's a bit of water to flow under the bridge ...

Plenty of water to go under the bridge - I just don’t ignore the tonnage of water that’s already flowed.

Well, i'll tell you, but that is in the next chapter.

So you think we'd go with just Max against Cox and Cameron...?

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
