You can't make the same argument with Bowey versus Hunt and Weid versus Oliver due to the reasons you named. Bowey and Hunt play the same position where Weid and Oliver are totally different players in different positions. Besides I'd play Oliver as a Ruck before Weid anyway. Just wouldn't let him jump at the centre bounce. Wink wink Cough cough. Who would you prefer in the back 6, Bowey or Hunt. 

Depends on the job they're assigned. If it's a wide receiver & distributor, Bowey. But if you have to quell the influence of a dangerous half-forward, Hunt. So for example if we front the Tigers you'd assume Hibbo goes to Dusty, Who do you want on Bolton ? Bowey ? I doubt it. Who's next option ? And don't give me Joel Smith - he'd be too busy handballing to Tom Lynch in the goalsquare.

Bowey got dropped for a couple of reasons - and didn't force his way back

Compo pick could be anywhere from 40-60.  Might not be much, for a bloke who played 20 games in a premiership year and 20 more the next. 

If he goes, unfortunately this compo is looking likely, if we assume about 3 years at approx $500k-$600k.

Our absolute best pick would be around 35.

Yeah I'm thinking 40s is likely, would be surprised if we got one in the 30s. Then again who knows how the herbs and spices work.

I'd trust Demons 11, who has a good track record of mfc info, a lot more than anything reported in the media.

we probably did offer him the contract and then took it away when we reassessed our options and when he asked for something outrageous and its kinda just followed that trajectory to where it is now

Adam Simpson is big on having people with good disposal, they have some work to do 

ironic given he signed witherden from the lions for that exact reason and then realised he just disposes of it sideways and backwards and gets 25 of the least effective touches and drops him every other week

The Back 6 or 7 I'd want see regularly is. May Lever Petty Salem Bowey with (Rivers or Hibb). Reckon we got the Tigers and most covered, seem to have for the last couple of years with Pies being the only exception. Just can't beat those muggs. You're right, Joel Smith ain't No Defender either.

fwiw this these are the compensation categories.

Free Agency Compensation pick categories: 

•  1st round
•  end of 1st round
•  2nd round
•  end of 2nd round
•  3rd round

In applying the formula, an expert committee reviews the formula outcomes. The committee has the power to recommend alternative outcomes to GM – Football Operations where the formula produces a materially anomalous result.

The word 'expert' made me laugh!

So for Jayden we would get a third round pick currently #51 but that will come in to a pick possibly in the low 40's once the second and third round picks have been cashed in for F/S.

Can't tell you much it pains me to write that.

Probably why he didn’t get a game, although Gaff does the same

I actually believe he will play Hunt on a wing

Expert 1: "Did we get the desired result?"
Expert 2: "No, the formula is coming up with a second round pick."
Expert 1: "Than Scrap It! We cannot have them only receiving a second round pick! We'll give them a first round pick as promised!"
Expert 1 Walks Up to GM - Football Operations: "As discussed yesterday, the formula has come up with the outcome of a first round pick."
GM - Football Operations: "Excellent! Please Proceed."

Are you sure? If he signs for 4 years on $500 surely that is end of 2nd round at least?

Possibly.  I didn't think he would get that sort of offer.

I was using the Amon deal of 4 years on $600 to $650, as a guide and Port get a 2nd round pick.

I’d rate Hunt not as highly as Amon obviously but equivalent to a Tomlinson when we signed him. He was on 4 years and 400K back then I think

His contracts have been for 2 years at time.  I would be surprised if he was on $400k at the dees or if he gets that at WCE. 

Sometimes we fans over estimate a player's salary e.g Freo reportedly offered Blake Acres a two year contract of $200-$300 p.a.  Carlton offered $350k for three years.

Not wishing to compare the players more giving an example of some salary realities for 'journeymen'.

Yes I think Eagles will have put up at least a 3year $350k a year deal to Hunt. At least!!! Could be a 4 year deal.  And almost a “you are clearly in our planning and will be guaranteed a game” type promise. 

and the rest

the 'average' afl wage is $375k

he's not going to move across the country to play for a bottom-ranked side for an 'average' wage

That's your first mistake, footballers are commodities that are to be bought and sold 😛

Oh and they're also role models and not entititled to lives of their own. Whenever I see player X out having a beer I wonder why he isnt training at that exact time.

Oh and why don't they care as much as we do when they lose? Based on no proof whatsoever. 🤣

Hunt’s our 23rd best player. Even at West Coast he’s not getting near their top 15.

And top 10 players all make 700k+, the next 5 get paid well too, bottom 10 players all make at least 100k plus match payments. 16-30 on the list  therefore have to get sandwiched. 

My guess is the raise in average player wages isn’t matched by the median player wage. We’d have to pay Hunt the median, given he is our median, I doubt that’s anywhere close to 375. West Coast would only have to beat that by enough to justify his move.

You’re right Dub. I’m heartbroken at the thought of him leaving. My only consolation is that it’s not Essendon or Collingwood who’ll get him.

Agree totally, very sad face

    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.

    DAISY DOES IT by Whispering Jack

    The Gold Coast has been treated to a feast of womens football over the past couple of days. On Friday night, the Brisbane Lions claimed flag favouritism when they knocked the Adelaide Crows off their second placed perch at Metricon Stadium. Then on Saturday evening at the same venue, the Melbourne Demons consolidated their hold on that vacated second spot when, they ruthlessly smashed a finals contender in consecutive weeks, this time the home town favourites, the Suns.    It was a case
