Farewell Toby Bedford


Demonland

Recommended Posts

Looks like GWS #21 is gone in a pick swap with the Lions.

News Corp’s Marc McGowan reported on Wednesday afternoon the Lions are set to send pick No.15 to the Giants in exchange for pick No.21 and a future second-round selection

Trading 27 for 21 is the points equivalent of pick 58 and Lamb already publicly turned down pick 43 for Bedford, so reckon you're correct Luci.

Yes but the trade for 27 shows it's not about the points. It's about the result.

Harsh - maybe its more of a reflection of everyone outside of Melb knowing our small forwards were not performing to the same level they were in 2021 but our coach being extremely reluctant to make changes or take a few risks with selection or positional changes

Harsh but the sad truth, and what value is determined by. Team won't pay based on time of development. Had he played more he may well have had more value, but our selection or lack of has hurt his value.

GWS likely have pick 30 coming in as part of the Hopper trade. 

30 for Bedford + 50 seems about right 

But it’s a bit like Freo with the Lobb trade - they are furiously denying it’ll happen, because they want to make the Jackson trade first, so they can keep whatever they get for him.

Spargo had a lot games early in his career when I don't think he deserved them. Chandler has had next to no games by comparison. Spargo had some good games in 2021 but this year has been far from that form IMO. He doesn't get the ball often enough. 

Totally agree.Will need to improve to hold his game next year. Howe maybtakevitnovervorvsomeone else.

Isn't that like giving Bedford away for next to nothing? 

It is 6 spot slide in a very even draft.  Every chance a player we would take at 21 will be there at 27.  And if we get 21 Coll will demand it.  Let them have 27 and we get a fair deal for Bedford.

Collingwood wanted a pick inside 25 for Grundy. With Brisbane acquiring 21 & 25 today, pick 27 will likely slide up to 25 after Brisbane match bids. 
 

No need to do any extra work to give Collingwood a better pick, we’ve effectively met the asking price.

Great post mate.

It always seems strange to me that if clubs could get a deal done, that they wouldn't just try and do it as quickly as possible, so they can move onto other priorities.

The Grundy deal should have been done today.

Might be contracts ticked off by the AFL that is the holdup? Given the salary transfer etc it might take longer? 
Surely this gets done by Friday?!

weak? its what he gets paid to do.

 

If GWS have told him he will play senior football on more $$ than what dees are offering then good on him for finding that opportunity.

 

Yep, good on him (Bedford). Still, I reckon that we are going to regret (considerably) his loss to the team; his development stagnated and is about to erupt very positively.

You have the example of Freo desperately denying that Lobb will be traded; they just want to get the Jackson deal done first so they can keep whatever they get for Lobb for themselves instead of being forced to include it for us.

Fair point that 27 will slide to 25. 

But Brisbane didn't have 25 at the time I made that post in which I was saying to just give Coll 27.  So I agree no need to sweeten the Grundy deal  I could only see a sweetener for Coll optics and give them 54 which we won't use.

Or we trade 27 and 54 to Brisbane for 25. Nets them an extra 170pts for Ashcroft, and Collingwood have their pick 25.

Maybe so but let's find another way to sweeten the Grundy trade than giving Bedford away for a mere 6 spot slide.

 

Why sweeten the CW deal? We don't have to as  they have decided to push him we are the only suitor Give the minimum in my view

No we don't need to but only if it is necessary to make the trade happen.  We won't use #54.

It's terribly bad faith dealings. They really are the worst club.

I think this deal will take the longest. Gws holding a bounty of picks now and we have little to play with. Once Grundy deal is done (I like the 27 and 54 = 25 from Brisbane trade), then the Jackson deal is done, I think we try haggle once the picks are in our hands. No need for Toby to stress unless freo try drag things until the 11th hour.

I heard on the radio that Freo currently have pick 13 and pick 88...

I am really lost now on how they're able to satisfy us with what we're after.

Freo have royally [censored] themselves over.

Unless theyve heard around the traps that the Eagles arent in play with pick 2?  In that case they are then (possibly already are) going to try & royally do that to us!

No, that is what they started with. they now have future 2nd and 3rd round picks tied to Nth Melbourne’s ladder position as well as their own future 1st round. Talk seems to be centered around Current 13th plus F1, F2(nth) plus probably some pick swaps

We’re also seen to be doing the same thing, so that we can hand over only 27 for Grundy, but Freo is holding it all up.

I’d like to see us then move picks to GC for next year so that we can get back in earlier for this draft.

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
