He hasn't been a premier ruckman for 2 years, and now has a series of injuries. 

There is a fairly decent list of players who're injury prone, but move to another club where the medical staff get them right and they thrive, if Selwyn and the team think they can get Grundy back to anywhere near his best i think we'd be silly not to seriously look at it.

His highest tally is 12 in a season (2021)  so not overly great. But still 2 more goals than the generational talent that’s currently relieving Max in the ruck.

Jackson he did kick 16 goals last year in just his 2nd year of AFL footy.

That's more then Grundy ever has in any season.

He's on massive coin, so regardless of the dump, we're still paying him at least $700k for 5 years. 

Which would be better than Weid or Mitch Brown in the ruck, when Max needs a rest or is inured.

Grundy in our fitness program, dropping some kg's over the summer (Like Max did) would be a decent get on 700k a year, it's worth the risk if the club and medical department have had a good look and think we can do a better job of managing his body. 

Our fitness program is not our strong suite if you've been reading allot of posts on here lately

I see the appeal

Imagine getting 2 first round picks for Jackson (and potentially then some), and being able to pinch Grundy for a 2nd rounder in a cap dump

Would allow them to be super aggressive in moving up the draft order for a forward or other player they really like

I'd have more confidence in Grundy 20m out directly in front than Max

It's worth exploring.  Grundy and Gawn are very different players with different strengths.  They could complement each other nicely.  He's no Max but he'd be the best second ruck in the league by that far it's not funny.

I love how it refers to us as flag contenders. I didn’t read the actual story. Just looked at the link, took the bit I liked, and moved on with my life. It’s my current approach to ‘journalism’. It’s actually very efficient, and it saves me giving click revenue to parasites.

Although I'd be happy to see them weighed down with the albatross that is his contract for the next 5 years it's more likely that they'll be picking up a fair bit of the tab to move him on if they can. On that basis it make sense to at least have the conversation I guess but would taking on all of his remaining 5 years be a non negotiable from his perspective or would he be happy to compromise if it gets him out of Mordor?

Are we really questioning the FD on this without the full details? Surely there's a point where they deserve some credit and trust?

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
