Farewell Brodie Grundy


Ouch!

To get the Treloar deal done the Pies made it known they would pay $300k of his $900k salary for five years.

If you could get them to pay $400k of his $1M  Grundy could fit money wise for us

That seems like a pipe dream on the surface DJ, as I would assume it would be closer to 200-250 a year if we're simply allocating Jacksons dosh to Grundy. BUT what will be an interesting quandary for the Pies, is how long can they hold out on money negotiations if they need Grundy to go to prevent DeGoey DeGoing to the Saints and McStay McComing to the Pies. Would they get desperate and do the 400k deal ? What kind of pick would they demand off us? If we hold out long enough to pressure them, would they do Grundy for a late pick AND take a good enough 300-400k chunk :laugh: We have some leverage to get a good deal like you said.

My concern I have with the whole Grundy saga is what draft capital we have to give up?

Jay Clark on triple M stated that the two first rounders we'll get from Freo which he thinks we'll be in the teens, one we'll go to Collingwood for Collingwood. 

If this is the case then we're making a huge mistake giving away a first round pick for a ruckman who's going to be 29 next year.

Yes it's a big risk but I think the club is in a premiership window so they're looking at who can help us win flags in the next three years rather than in the long term

It would have to be a pick swap surely. Freo's 1st and 2nd for Collingwoods 1st and 2nd, if it's say 12-14 for 16-17? and 30-32 for 34-35. Anyway, Clark is just spitballing like we are.

I'd be very keen on him if a 2nd rounder is all we gave up

Not keen if we have to spend a 1st on him though, would prefer to go down the journeyman ruck route at that price

I'd rather years of sustained success, not 3 years and then a significant drop off the cliff.

You need s good balance of bringing in key players that can certainly help straight away but a breed of new talent as well.

If we are giving up a 1st rd pick for him the I’d suggest they would be paying a large portion of his wage.  If we are giving up a 2nd or 3rd pick would suggest we are paying the larger portion.

For me we shouldn't be giving up a first round pick for a 29 year old ruckman.

Regardless of who pays how much portion of the salary. That's just silly, especially coming off some significant injury concerns.

For me doesn't do enough to warrant such a salary,  They would want a club to pay at least $700k of a $1.2 million a year contract, Collingwood have just worked out they have been dudded once again.😂

Had one good season in a contract year and Collingwood as they tend to do are paying overs for players who don't deserve it.

Collingwood have no payment structure whatsoever. That's why continually find themselves under salary cap pressure.

 

 

"...Collingwood have just worked out they have been dudded once again.😂..."  

You mean they have greedily stuffed themselves up once again.  Footscray' and Adam Trealor say "hi".

a bit expensive to take grundy's contract. he's stiill got 5 years to go at over $1m/yr.  so even if the filth pay some for 5 years,  the remainder and risk of 5 years length will dissuade most suitors

Maybe the Magpies will have to pay well over 50% of their contracted payment? 😀

Not for me.

5 years and $3.5 million. - he’s 29 Ouch!

Just too rich and we haven’t done all that well with Collingwood trades.

Not sure how the cats could afford him ,but happy for them to take the risk and clog up salary cap.

We have a few we will have to tidy up next year.

Make them sweat and wait til the last day of the trade period. The Pies need the space, they have zero negotiation power. Zero chance of us giving half the LJ picks to the Pies (first rounder)

wgat did the dogs give up for Treloar, a gun in his prime?? With 4 years left

The prospect of making this deal is looking worse and worse 

Imagine trading out Jacko and a first rounder and getting grundy on a monster contract at the end of this 🤮

It's not a good fit. I've tried to rationalise it but it isn't 

It’s great if it only costs us $300,000 a year. Make the Filth pay. They created this contract and now they don’t want it

That's the biggest hurdle to all of it. Can't justify paying this much for a part time Ruckman.

If his Foot heals up and can take AFL Punishment he would be a great double act with Max for 2-3 years

costing $300,000 a year would be a potential bargain. The Filth can pay the rest.
But they are the only terms I would entertain. He is not worth any more. Foot injuries rarely go away fully

    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

    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
