English has already resigned with Dogs for next two years till 2024.  You need to keep accurate when discussing trade issues as incorrect facts spoil any post in good faith. 

It is indeed a bleak weekend for the club in the narrow context of season 2022, but this othering is surely a few fries short of a happy meal. Apart from the obvious, (i.e. who in their right mind seeks facts on Demonland?), what the hell is an incorrect fact?

It's not somuch his contract as any sane club would be demanding that Collingwood pick up half. It's the contract length if it doesn't work.

Unable to replace Cox who this time last year was unwanted.

If GWS loses players of the calibre they are suggested to lose they have a lot more "risk dollars" to spend than we have.

If going down this path Goldstein if available for a year is a far easier deal

Guys, most of you will not be pleased to hear this, however, I’m going to tell you what I know.  
Despite the Coaches continual public support of Brodie, the Pies are keen to move him on IF they can get the right terms.  Naturally, Brodie, who is contracted, will not be forced to go to a Club unless he is totally satisfied that they are a successful Club on & off the field.

Right at this minute, there are just two Clubs that have had preliminary discussions with his management to get all the facts around his current contract, where his head is at, his physical condition etc etc. 

I can tell you Melbourne is one of those two Clubs.

A lot of water to pass under the bridge, and I’m not saying at this point in time that it will happen, but I think it’s perfectly reasonable that the Dees would explore this in the likely event that Luke Jackson departs. 

And he goes bang with another...!

Good get @goodwindees

Still staggered by this move, regardless of what draft pick we give up. Grundy has basically missed a whole season and is no spring chicken. Neither he or Gawn can play forward. We'll see how it pans out.

It will be a salary dump and he will go for a late pick and Pies paying a chunk. He holds the cards. They want his salary out.

They do the deal, or he stays for 5 years on full pay.

Does sound like we have accepted LJ going.

It's a brilliant move. Have the Filth pay the first mil a year, BG plays at Casey and comes in when Max needs a rest. Max plays until he's 40.

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

I’d take Grundy he is still one of the premier rucks in the league if fit and I don’t believe any of his injuries are debilitating. Just a question of at what price. If pies are willing to cover some of the contract and not require much in the way of picks then I’m all for it. If we could get him by paying 650k and a 2nd round pick I think that is a win.

Yes probably $600k-$700k.

I would guess they would be doing it to preserve Max’s body and lengthen his career.

They then could get key forwards in the LJ trade, by getting one from Freo, plus a high pick to get another and maybe a Meek as the Insurance or a young rookie ruck.

Could solve most problems with the list in one hit.

I don’t really get posters saying no way to a 28 year old…. We are in the window now, anyone who can make us better even if it’s for only 3 years is absolutely worth a chance at another flag.

I’m with you! He and Max would dominate.

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

Grundy is a no brainer as long as we don’t pay overs <700K. He is definitely an upgrade on LJ and will be for at least the next 2 years.

 

Agree. Jacko may become a star but for now, Grundy would contribute much more - on the proviso his body is right to go in 2023.

I’d much rather 3 years solid service from him than 2 more years of patchy cameos from Jackson before he leaves anyway (would also be happy to see Jacko flourish at my expense)

Absolutely GCDee, especially when we are talking a second round draft pick for a player who we should get 50 - 100 games of A grade football. It is no different to us potentially bringing Hogan back at the end of this season.

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.

I'm really pleased with this because Grundy is probably Max's biggest rival when fully fit, if we could get him for below market rate, it is a good get. 

if it allows for Max to play as our deepest forward more often he becomes a very serious headache for opposition teams and gives us a real target that actually makes our forward line more suited to the long bombing style we're trying to play.

Last year his numbers were very decent. 
Ranked above average in disposals, contested possessions and score involvements, ranked elite in clearances & average in hit outs to advantage and hit out wins.
can you imagine what his numbers would look like when he is the second banana rucking against the likes of Josh Bruce and jnr SOS? 

compare that to LJ where is was above average in disposals and score involvements, average in contested possessions and below average in hit out wins, hit outs to advantage and clearances.

No dig at LJ, he is 8 years younger and going to be a star but pound for pound output Grundy is a better player today.  
We have a real chance to win 3+ flags in the next 5-6 years. 
 

If we can get Grundy on the $ LJ was going to take, with little trade equity we are essentially bettering that position plus obtaining valuable assets from the LJ trade to fix our forward line…

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
