IF it's not paid to Grundy the majority will be paid to his replacement so still the same costs

I doubt we are in the market for a 500k+ ruck,  back up rucks don't get much love, hence why they are the ones who move clubs a lot

Time will tell on that, I suppose we could get one in that is pretty well useless.

And they wont be on a 4 year deal, back up rucks get short deals which is why they move around.

if we get a ruck in it will be a cheap option but a solid ruck, they are never great around the ground but usually pretty competitive in the ruck contests.  They also have Verrall developing in the VFL.  The only reason they would spend money is if they don't think he will cut it.  From what i have seen from the 19 YO he looks pretty good in the early stages of his career.

Unless we go for a Chol type who is the Ruc/Fwd type, then you will have to spend a little bit.  Which i don't mind that option. But not his contract which would have to be around the $1mil mark over the next 2 years

I think we will be in the market for a good young prospect that in time could take Max's position. Forward craft would be a bonus.

So, as you say probably not going to be much change left out of the Grundy deal to move a player like this.

Conflicting news on this...is it Melbourne the city, or Melbourne the club?

https://www.sen.com.au/news/2023/09/06/adelaide-forward-quits-crows-seeking-trade-to-melbourne-based-club/

It says in the title " Melbourne based club" but in the article specifically to the dees. Small forward 28. Anybody got any thoughts.

Why "perfect fit"? Genuinely curious. We seem to have Spargo, Chin and Kozzi and be lacking talls more than smalls. But I think Im probably missing something.

He’s small but also pretty good on a lead and can take a great mark so not exactly prototype small forward 

Crows website has him at 186cm, so same height as Melk, 2cm smaller than Fritsch

Reckon he has x factor and pace. We need more pressure for spots there.

We genuinely had no competition for Chandler for weeks when he was just nowhere near getting the job done. 

The game is going this way and I'd say he'd be on small dollar for more years (takes him to 31).

Seems like a classic MFC move. For needs and they've targeted their man and got him.

    CONSISTENCY by The Oracle

    "I think we have got a team that can win a premiership, and if we get in this year, I don't think there is a team that is going to want to play us. This year is not a write-off, I don't concede that. Not at all." — Collingwood President Jeff Browne. I love this sort of optimism from the Magpie President after his club’s eleven goal defeat at the hands of the fast rising Hawks. It’s consistent with the fighting spirit of the club that won last year’s flag.  I only wish I could say the s

    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

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta
