As I previously stated we should demand Amati plus their first draft pick if Brodie requests a transfer  discussed BUT AGAIN has Grundy STATED HE WANTS TO LEAVE No?

I rest my case

He's professional so regardless of the behind the scenes manoeuvring I wouldn't expect any such statement by Grundy until our season is over.

Yep, he doesn't want to be the no 1 ruckman in the VFL.  He goes to Sydney is the No 1 ruck and good luck to him.  Just give us a blinder on Friday night and help us beat the blues

 Not sure resting your case wins the debate. 😜😜

Tom Morris can buzz off. He has lost all credibility in my view. In fact most of the media are scumbags!

We're actually going to really need Brodie Grundy this week if Max Gawn "allegedly" has a broken toe.

Fingers crossed we can get this ruck duo to work for the next 3 games in this finals campaign. 🤞

And if it works in the next 3 games why not beyond???? Reckon Brodie has shown his class throughout all that has transpired for him this year. Proud to have him as a Demon.

One of the worst list management decisions of recent times.

I’d rather leave him at the pies to bleed their salary cap for the next 5 years

I agree with that. Let him stay at Melbourne. We need a back up ruckman. He can stay and not go to Port Adelade

But if the club needs the draft picks a bidding war would be good

Bidding wars rarely happen and would only be the case in free agents.

Once Grundy nominates a club, looking like Sydney, we'll negotiate with them alone. 

We do slightly hold the whip hand though in that we can keep him to our contract if we aren't happy with the compensation. All in all I think we move him on and we utilise the extra draft capital to have a crack at Gold Coasts pick 4.

And Sydney are desperate for a No.1 ruckman. 

They hold picks 11, 22, 30, 41. 

I highly doubt they give us 22. We should go for Picks 30 + 41 (points equivalent to late 1st round pick)

We can then trade 24,30,34,41 (2368) to GC for Pick 4, whilst retaining Pick 15. What people don't talk about is the power we will have over GC. We can call in all of their Academy picks at pick 5, costing them more points than they would have planned for. We could use this force them to trade with us over say a Bulldog's. 

This leaves us with 4,5,15 in this years draft (before any compensation)

Options from here:

1. Take 4+5 to either WCE  for Pick 1 

2. Take 5+15 to Hawks for Pick 3.

3. Take 4+15 to North for Pick 2

4. Take them all to the draft.

Hope Grundy stays. I think at times this year he struggled with endurance, maybe his injured 2022 season had something to do with it.

With another MFC preseason under his belt, I can't see how the Grawndy duo won't work. 

I agree a full preseason under his belt and who knows what we might have.

I think pick 22 for Grundy is fair. I don't think GC will swap pick 4 for those NQR picks. Holding clubs over a barrel never works out into the future. Just look at Peter Bell.

That's exactly right. Good players nominate a club and off they go. Grundy will tell us who he wants to go to, and we will try to get the best possible deal for ourselves, while not actively trying to screw over Grundy because we are not Essendon.

We will get it done, but it will be on our terms, or we will be happy to keep him.

    CONSISTENCY by The Oracle

    "I think we have got a team that can win a premiership, and if we get in this year, I don't think there is a team that is going to want to play us. This year is not a write-off, I don't concede that. Not at all." — Collingwood President Jeff Browne. I love this sort of optimism from the Magpie President after his club’s eleven goal defeat at the hands of the fast rising Hawks. It’s consistent with the fighting spirit of the club that won last year’s flag.  I only wish I could say the s

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta
