Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the issue of illicit drugs in footy, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.


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

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.
