I must admit I was sceptical on chasing him as he plays similar to Fritta, but if Fritta and Melk can play well together in the coming weeks it’s prob not a bad option for a Grundy trade, but I’d also be loathe to give port a better ruckman.

Melbourne were very keen on him in his Draft year but missed out. I would think this is the play if Grundy is going to Port.

He is a lesser version of Fritter in my view and we don't need him. My preference is for a power forward We can get a 4 mark 1 goal a game player anywhere

Averaging over a goal a game at this stage in his career is ntb but is inaccurate, and as said he aint tall.

Not saying he's a champion or anything but he is 1cm shorter than JVR and 6cm taller than Melksham who I see as the closest proxy in our current forward set up

2 Fritters would be totally fine with me

They're not the same anyway, as Georgiades is far more of a lead mark player, getting up on the wings while Fritter is closer to goal.

I'd rather us go Rozee or Butters, but I understand we're interested. Depends what we give up.

There is no way we acquire these players

I suspect the Eagles will offer overs. His non signing at Port is reportedly down to $$ and not being guaranteed a best 22 spot pre-injury.

Tread with care is my conclusion

Time to claim the so called premiership discount that the power clubs had in the past

I think this would be a great option.  This kid has shown plenty in his restricted career.  Port have not played him correctly either.

Straight swap for Grundy would be a fair trade IMO.

A whole thread about a very average player

So Demonland

Couldn't regularly make the Port side pre injury and wants good dollars plus 4 year deal.

As I said above... tread carefully

Upside is that he is 21 and being a first rounder suggests he had ability.

Has he had a 3 goal / high possession game. How did he go in the SANFL pre injury

He has never been the second tall,  has always played alongside 2 other talls and they all get in each others way.

He would be a great second tall for us with Fritter being that versatile 3rd

Maybe - is he better than either of Petty or Joel Smith?

Will Jefferson be better in 2 years?

If we were talking about Larkey, McKay, Lynch or Allen I can see the appeal and clear point of difference of the taller player but for Georgiades I'm not so sure. 

Ultimately, I suppose it comes down to cost - if he isn't costing the earth then maybe worth a punt. He does have good hands I will give him that.

Oh i agree with those other players but they aren't on the table.  If i Could choose one, Allen!! he is perfect, gun key forward and can to the ruck pinch hitting too.

That's the only issue, if we do go for a young key fwd and Jefferson does come on we will lose one.

In terms of Petty and Smith, yes!  Much better than Smith and Petty had been great hole filler but i do think he will settle in defence, especially once May retires

Good player. Great hands. iffy set shot. He was dropped at the start of the year. Not sure whether due to form or attitude. not good either way. then got a bad injury. 

I don't think he's quite what we want. I'm thinking another key to play alongside JVR. He plays more as the third which is Fritschs role now.

In theory, I love the idea of a very mobile and dangerous forward line of JVR, Fritta and Georgiades. Even better if we could get Watson in the draft to pair with Kozzie.

However, I don’t think the combination carries enough size for our defensive game plan. None are big enough to sit under high ball’s for an entire year, they’d be cooked before finals

I have maybe seen Georgiadis in 2 games so have never really noticed him if I'm honest, but if this is anything to go by, he's doing pretty well after 49 games?

After 49 games the following had: 

Gunstan - 86 goals

Hipwood - 73 goals

Jamie Elliot - 66 goals

Georgiadis - 65 goals

Jack Reiwoldt - 62 goals

Charlie Curnow -  60 goals

Fritsch -  41 goals

Only 21 years old, effectively same amount of goals as Jamie Elliot, more goals than Reiwoldt, Curnow and Fritsch at the same time. 

Seems to be more upsides than down?

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
