Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.

Not according to @Dannyz who's got good inside source and said he's bound for Hawthorn. 

The Harley deal could mean he is right — it’ll now be likely they take the compo needed to get Liam Henry, still hope but looking less likely than it was 6-12wks ago & even a week ago.

Because he’s not a small forward and has nothing to do with those 3? 🤷‍♀️


Wait a sec, just cos he’s been playing on the wing this season doesn’t mean he’s not a small forward. He certainly was when he was drafted.

GCS total 2023 draft pool is hovering around the 4500 points mark. Rumour has it that at least 2 of the 3 academy players will be top 10 and given the expected order of those, will need at least 3500 for the two expected to go early. The question will be how much contingency are they going to need or are they prepared to go into deficit next year.

Agree as you put it  that Pick 4 is of value but cashing it in for points is really a waste. Put in an enticing offer in front of them and i cant see why they wouldn't trade. If a F1 was part of the deal, then id hold onto Pick 15 and give them what ever else we have in the treasure trove, which would include 2nd and 3rd rounders hopefully for Tommo, Harmes.

On a side note: if Grundy does goto Sydney i would try this potential trade:
Grundy + Pick 15 for Sydney's Pick 9 and 28, which has a points value similar to end of first round 1, which is about right i think. 

So then for GCS Pick 4, you'd give them F1, 23(MFC),28 (Syd), 36(MFC) + one of Tommo/Harmes (~300). Its approx an extra 200-300 points to GCS in 2023 draft plus a F1. Its a huge huge benefit to GCS and probably unbalanced so we may ask for a F2 to come back our way. 

We could then have 4,5,9 in 2023. 

"We could then have 4,5,9 in 2023. "

 

GtG - your maths is way too complicated for me but are you serious that we could have 4,5,9 in a Premiership year?

I must sau that would be a reasonably satisfying year.

This is like hot gossip at the pub! 😅🤣😂😁

In all seriousness, I would prefer to keep Brodie Grundy. I still think he has a big part to play in the Demons finals campaign and beyond.

I also personally really like Brodie Grundy and it would be quite sad to lose him after only one season at the Demons. Especially as the two ruckmen game style DID work in the pre-season and could work again in the future.

 

However, if he was to request a trade between Port Adelaide and Sydney. I would actually prefer to trade him to Sydney in return for either Joel Amartey or (preferably) Hayden McLean. I also think we would actually drive a hard bargain. Why? Because as the old saying goes.... "supply and demand" and if we can get a great deal for Brodie Grundy then why not take it?

McLean just signed for 4 years with the Swans.

Need someone with speed and skill. Don't poo poo it yet 

Goodwin likes his midfielders/wingers to be able to get their own ball. Doesn't do exclusively outside mid. You can tell he played under Malcolm Blight!

Not sure Henry with an average of five contested possessions a game this year fits the bill...

Hunter us the perfect example of this, you can tell Goody loves having him out there.

Still not quite enough sample data on Henry but I do get what you're saying. Maybe more a flanker type?

Yes, and he’s done it in fine style.

The point is, there’s a huge ‘Elephant in room’ , that is the big MFC blunder in not retaining Toby. 

It's not a huge elephant room. We wanted to keep him and were [censored] off when he sought a trade to GWS, when we were giving him game time, had invested in his development as an NGA and then a primary listed player.

    SCRUTINY & RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the week when preseason training melds into scratch matches with other clubs, is the first marker for the beginning of a new season, then this has certainly been a torrid opener for the Melbourne Football Club in its campaign to remain a leading AFL premiership contender in 2024. The Demons were already under enormous scrutiny from the media and football’s fan base (including their own) after consecutive straight-sets finals exits, with Clayton Oliver’s well documented woes, the Joel Smi
