I reckon it speaks more to the way we're trying to play than anything else, i don't think we might losing clearance on our terms, 

Yep, exactly.

So do I read this right:

grundy was on a front loaded deal, meaning the ongoing rate is reduced from the big number bandied around?

the filth will look to pay some of his salary

he will take a pay cut to join us?

sounds like we get a pretty good deal from all of this, depending on the pick traded.

Clear to see how much Pies fans value Grundy from the comments on social media.

So good to be screwing them over

what were they thinking giving him a $7m deal!?  hilarious

Most on here think we are being done over by giving then anything but a 4th rounder.

With both sides unhappy it probably means it's a fair deal.

At least one of our long term deals will probably go to (bad) if it’s hasn’t already. That’s without mentioning medium term deals like Lever, Gawn, Tomlinson, Brown, McDonald.

The Pies had 3 choices:
- Trade an All Aus ruck a year ahead of time
- Accept a very ordinary late first round compo in a mess of a draft when he left to Adelaide 
- pay him market value 

They’ve had him for 2 more years and will be left with 1.5M dead cap but they’ve get a similar worth pick now than if they just let him go as a free agent in 2020.

4th choice is manage your list well. If you see him as someone to build your team around for 7 years, lock him in early at a reasonable salary - see MFC approach. If you don’t value him that highly, trade him early and get good comp. They waited and then panicked 

Why do you think Trac or Clarry will go bad? Can’t see it happening. We are giving long term deals to gun players that we want to keep forever. Not trade when we screw up the cap

Who would take a long term deal with Collingwood and expect them to keep their side of the deal.

So your advice to Collingwood was to trade Grundy in 2019 when he was All Aus and they’d lost a grand final by a kick a year prior? The signed him in January 2020, there’s only so much earlier you can sign a guy. We got Oliver and Tracc midseason 16 or so months out but not sure it was a huge discount, they’ll be on close to 7 figures too.

I’m not doom riding Oliver and Tracc. But I think we have to be careful with Tracc’s injuries to keep him fresh. 

Brayshaw everyone knows my thoughts on. Salem and Fritsch have 4 left I wouldn’t see them certainties to last.

my advice is to decide if they think Grundy was that good, sign him up, pay the money and see out the contract.  If not, trade him.  don't panic and sign him up on a 7mill deal and then decide he is not that good 2 years later. The Pies seem to think the number of years on a contract don't matter once the player stays for the next 1-2 years. and then they throw them under the bus 1/4 way through

He was that good, then he got injuries, they had a cheaper alternative and now they’re moving on. We tried to do the same to Tom McDonald after 2020, we’re trying to do it with Tomlinson, that’s footy. 
 

The Treloar situation was a bit different because they asked him to be back ended, then slandered him in the press when they wanted him offloaded.

With pick 21# from GWS going to Brisbane it looks like it is "take it or leave it" for Collingwood to accept pick 27# from Melbourne for Brodie Grundy.

Nah, heaps of options.

27 and future third, or even trade Bedford and 27 to GWS for 19 and 44, then offer 19 for Grundy.

19 is a valuable pick on draft night.

Or are you saying GWS wouldn't do that deal?

If a team asks for a top 25 pick and we get pick 27 there’s no way in hell we should suddenly offer 19! 

Once they have Tom Mitchell lined up they’ll do the deal for 27

    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

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
