The Brodie Grundy Thread

I don't know who else is available but I wouldn't want to spend a first round pick on a second ruckman

Our current second ruckman could net 2, so buying a better ruckman for half that price seems pretty reasonable.

Having said that, there is no reason this deal would warrant a first rounder if Collingwood are actually dumping his salary

He would be on top of the list, although l think he stays at norf

Goldstein is 34. So perfect for Geelong.

Flynn (24 y.o), or Briggs (22 y.o) from GWS. They are pretty well stocked with those 2 and Preuss. 

Surely one of them would appreciate more opportunity, and playing with a better team.

Both have shown some ability to take a contested mark / kick a goal, in their short careers thus far, on top of basic competent ruck craft.

Wasn’t the long term contract Eddy got Grundy to sign supposed to keep him a magpie for life?

Imagine what Grundy must now be thinking when, with 5 years left, he’s told to look elsewhere! Particularly when it’s essentially a f- wit like de Goey that the pies seem to want to keep in preference to him.

They are contracted aren't they? If contracted players aren't moving then what do you do?

I see it more as him doing most of the ruck whilst Gawn spend more time forward

Goodwins interview today sounds like he does too.

I think him and Langdon would be besties

For sure he knows the words to ‘This Is Me’, I actually think he’d get along with the list. We are not building, we are hot now, the next four years is our sweet spot. We are a contest based side with Oliver, Tracy, Viney, Sparrow who deserve a matching ruck; and I think Grundy would be great for the defensive structures as well. He is however not a KPF and that is what we are all balding about.

Does anyone know what his contract is with Collingwood? What are currently the dollars to be paid over the next 5 years?

Without seeing a Collingwood balance sheet it's hard to tell. Someone more in the know could have a punt on the  percentages each year but it's a long bow.

I would have thought the ruck situation is less of an issue if we get someone like Meek from Freo as part of the Jackson trade (if it were to go ahead).  He would be behind Jackson and Darcy - arguably the two best rucks under 25 in the game.

Sure if we can get Grundy cheaply (in salary and trade wise) but otherwise I'm not convinced  he's the answer.  Shouldn't we be throwing the kitchen sink at a gun key forward instead?

I think Goldstein is a much lower risk recruit. He is a better forward than Grundy and not on a ridiculous contract.

Jack Silvani would be another option to go for to play second ruck. Getting dropped to sub showed he wasn’t considered to be in the best 22.

If Gawn is to play forward we need a game plan that involves him handing off every time to a player coming past for every shot between 1m out to 50m out. 
The invention of the dual player shot for goal strategy.

Grundy buys Gawn 2 maybe 3 more seasons. It gives us time to develop another young ruck (could possibly be Jeff White’s kid who I believe is now 16) and means we are not losing much ruck strength with Jackson leaving. 
 

I would only do it if it costs us peanuts both in terms of picks and salary.

I dont necessarily understnd this. Isnt a KPF also quite an intense role, especially given our game style. Cant see it extending his career tbh.

Ruck is the most physically demanding role there is. Gawn gets absolutely smashed in there and 99 out of 100 times it’s play on. 
Given he’s had 3 knee recos, there is no doubt that playing FF will absolutely extend his career. Plenty of FF retire in their mid 30s. Look at Kennedy and Hawkins.

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
