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

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?

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.

    TRAINING: Wednesday 1st February 2023

    PICKET FENCE'S TRAINING REPORT REHAB  Clarry, Max, Farris-White, Melky, Matt Jefferson, Jakey Lever, Joel Smith & 1 Other I couldn't place. Glad to see the Club being ultra cautious with Clarry's thumb BUT the fact he is still troubled with it is worrying (God I hate Selwood) Got there at 10.50 to see Full match Simulation Game between the Blues and the Whites. Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    WIZARD333'S TRAINING REPORT I went down and it was locked out for first hour but could see through fence then allowed in. Max Gawn ran laps — it looks like a 3 to 4 week injury. Andy Moniz-Wakefield ran laps. Blake Howes was taken off late as was on restricted minutes. Adam Tomlinson loudest on track and a leader - surprised me but won't be in best 25. Jake Lever on bike and walking up n down stairs, yelling out as he does. Melky copped a niggle so ran laps but

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

Williams yelling out to players to get their hands off hips during drills. Gus looks fine to me. Absolutely., first two mins of match sim and his kicking is exquisite on both sides. He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
