The Age interview with Goody did mention that Angus was travelling at the moment.

Sadly, James Brayshaw just did the big freeze slide and said he was due to go down with Angus but Gus had 'other things to contend with at the moment'. Hope he's doing ok

There are no words for my hatred and rage towards Maynard, Collingwood and the AFL. 
There is only one game I want to win this year, and that’s today.

I hope he finds solace in his travels.

See I really would have been surprised if Angus did that. I reckon the last thing he want to do today is be there at the G.

From the outside the pain appeared to go unacknowledged. Surely some kind of something - name on the banner, speech.....something....

Perhaps the pain of the supporters is more pronounced than the pain of the club at the incident. We aren’t pragmatic, we are emotional. Players and coaches can’t afford to be. 
 

I would have been fine if we ignored him and won. But we [censored] the bed AND we were unnecessarily friendly to him. 
A kick in the guts to the supporters and most importantly to poor Gus. Hope he’s enjoying his trip and didn’t watch it!

I think it means we still have to swallow just under half of his contract in the salary cap over the next 4 years. Farcical.

the first year after forced retirement 90% of his salary is covered in the cap and each year after the amount covered is reduced - so by the time brayshaw's contract with us finishes 100% of whatever he was owed will be part of our salary cap total

we just got ROGERED

no, worse - by the final year of his remaining contract, ALL of whatever he was owed will contribute to our total salary cap payment

i hope we hadn't back-ended his deal...

I wonder what Collingwood's exposure is re Murphy? My guess is: the concessions suit them a lot more than they suit us....

they extended his deal by several years at the start of this year, but not more than three further seasons

Can we still re-negotiate the terms of the contract i wonder? for example bring 90% of the money owed into year 1, so that the impact would be lessened given the 90% cover?

The club should take the AFL to court, as we are effectively down 1 vg player for four years, that makes no sense.!!!

I am very interested to see how our club reacts to this idiotic decision, hell we expect to pay Gus in full but not from our player payments like having one hand tied behind your back. In that case Collingwood should have to share our burden.!!!

Pretty impressive that a single Maynard bump can take a couple of million off a rival club's future salary cap.

I think we can all see the missing piece of the puzzle is any application of culpability.

 

Best solution I can think of is to create a fund which is supplied by a system of fines for clubs based on the frequency of injuries inflicted on opponents and on dangerous behvaiours. It also adds an element in between 'nothing to see here' and 'weeks of suspension' for the relatively minor dangerous acts on field.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 19 vs Fremantle

    It's Game Day and the Demons have a golden opportunity to stamp their 2024 finals credentials as well as make amends for their disastrous first meeting against the Dockers earlier in the season when they take on Fremantle at Optus Stadium.

    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

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a

    HEAVENS ABOVE by Molly Melbourne

    Who said the football gods and scoreboard attendants at the MCG don’t have a sense of humour? The gods spent a whole week teasing Demon and Bomber fans alike about Saturday night’s game. About how the entire match would be dominated by the hulking, brooding figures of 205cm Sam Draper and his 2IC Peter Wright lapping it up in the absence of Melbourne skipper and the club's No.1, No 2, No 3 and No 4 ruckman Max Gawn in the wake of that ankle injury. They painted pictures of Simon Goodwin ne

    The Demonland Podcast will not be LIVE again this week.

I will post the show here once I receive Binman's stats files. You can also find it wherever you get your podcasts from. We will return in our regular format once I return after the Dockers match.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 18 vs Essendon

    It’s game day and the Demons face a massive test which may determine whether they have what it takes to play finals this season. The task has been made all the more difficult without their Premiership Captain Max Gawn.
