Farewell Toby Bedford

That’s an aggressive contract that suggests we see Tobes as more than depth. Not sure I really see it, and if I was his manager I’d probably suggest he go with the team that provides him easier game time. Tricky decision for him. 

Going to need him if we have an inkling kozzie might go

Didn’t place in the top 10 in Casey b and f despite playing majority of the year there

He's got good speed but no more / less than Chandler, for instance, and none of the same ability to win and use his own ball

He played 9 home and away games. 2 finals. That's why he didn't poll well.

Looking forward to hearing which speedy player/(s) we are in discussions with for a trade?! 

Bit of a hit to lose your 2 fastest players, when you don’t have an abundance of speed.

I think we try trade our 2nd round selection (32) with Bedford for GWS 2nd round selection (21)

Works out to roughly pick 49 for Bedford which i think is fair.

The game is becoming more and more about speed and transition. A shame to see him go.

Another downside of not giving young players enough opportunities?

yup just read this on twitter to, sad loss.

Time for Chandler to get his chance, and develop Andy Moniz-Wakefield in the VFL

Fair based on the amount he has played. 

But an absolute waste from an MFC perspective. Develop him up for a few years, to then not give him a decent opportunity when he is ready for AFL is a real head scratcher for me.

Then 21 for Grundy

I haven't seen enough of them to compare, but how do Bedford, Chandler and Spargo compare in their ability to tackle and make those tackles stick?  Spargo does this pretty well for a small forward, and I suspect that Goody puts a lot of value in this.

Have seen just about nothing of Chandler - his one run this year was as I recall a part game (as sub) v North in which he was very harshly IMO suspended for two games and wants seen again.  I recall that he was going very hard at it when the incident occurred.

I think Chandler is the one. He had a great game in the VFL grand final and I saw him kick 5 in horrendous conditions at whiten oval from every angle you can imagine.

That is a shame. I think he has a future and to get him through the our academy and now he wants out. We can say no but you’d only do that if we see him in the best 22. If he is requesting perhaps we have said that he isn’t.

  • Grapeviney changed the title to Toby Bedford requests trade to GWS (updated)

This is one where I'll have to trust the FD. I would be keeping him.  If the kozzie talk is half true you'd think Bedford needs to stay. Having said that I think Chandler and a couple of others are also close to the small forward 22 slot

Ramifications of Goodwin not playing players, that IMO deserved a better go. Disappointed to see him go, Goody can’t keep playing favourites 

Seeing ANB come 8th in the B&F this year, would be enough to make anyone competing for his position want to depart.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
