Zero compensation. 

Missed the SPP deadline by a few days unfortunately. 

Surely a waiver for that deadline is in order, though what good it would do, I dunno.

Frankly my dear I couldn't give a damn what Maynard thinks about anything. I have a strong view about the reckless intent of that incident. I'm not going to discuss it any further. 

Me too....intent to hit was there

This thread reeks of excuses. We have a solid list and will be contending again this year. Trac and Viney will do what they do, Clay Clay will go to another level, Pickett will dominate, our second string players will step up and our first round picks will play this year and provide energy.

I hope you are right.  But I fear you may be sounding a bit like the Black Knight of Holy Grail fame.

No doubt The Filth took out Angus in that game

Premeditated plan executed 

They all loved it

Eddie shouted “Justice”

These are the [censored] called Collingwood 

Young Demons may now understand how much they must be despised and Hated for eternity 

Don’t get me started on The AFL

The young demons in my household fully understand this.  The sight/mention/hint of collingpooh leads them to make severe vomit sounds.  Their hearts beat true.

May it Continue…

Seriously this incident could make or break the Club for the next 20 years. 
We have to be Rock Solid and get Stronger 

This last week has left us wounded, but not out….

Agree.  Please let it be the making, not the breaking.  Us supporters have a role here.  We can sign up & go along & support the team, or we can walk away and be part of the breaking.

End of the year we will have a serious war chest.

Gus - approx $600k pa

TMac - approx $400k pa

Brown - approx $300-$400k pa

Tomlinson - approx $300-$400k pa

We could have almost $2m in salary cap to play with, noting some of this will probably go to existing players.

Yes. We have to get more ruthless at recruiting Top Line Stars. 
we have done well, but i still think there is another step to take

This Season, because of the way it has started is Crucial, if we can Stand up and Fight Hard, players will want to wear our Jumper

Gus will be a prominent watcher and supporter of such a rise in form from our players, motivated by Gus' departure under very questionable circumstances and minimalist AFL concern. Gus, you were our marque on what MFC players should be doing onfield.

I would expect about this level of care from the AFL about compensating or helping us after this.

It will be way more than that, with more players gone.

Given the AFL is part of the Officialdom forcing the retirement, surely we are given a few more days to take a SPP player.

Brayshaw is a young man with a uni degree. He's retiring from footy not life.. He'll get a well paid MonFri job easily. Why compensation?  For what?

AFL/tribunal found Maynards act was legal.

Case closed. Its disgusting what happened but no-one in the AFL cares.

Brayshaw knew the risks but underestimated Collingwood.

I believe Brayshaw was set up in the QF. Maynard elevated himself straight at Brayshaws head.

CEO tricky Gil hid under his desk that week. Maynatd was always getting off.

Its all over now.

Are you for real?  Is this sarcasm?  Or actually a post by a Collingwood supporter trolling?

There should be flexibility in the AFL rules. You should be able to do a SSP signing at any time if a vacancy occurs. AFL could create this with a flick  of a mouse decision. But it won’t.

Only advantage is we have 3/4 mths to see which players we can consider. Should be look for another ruck support or perhaps an exciting goal kicker or possibly a key defender. Those 3 spots while either one could help us in time in 2024 if we chose the right one.

We chose Marty Hore In a panic choice really and now a half back like Angus ( a winger and class on baller also) it’s difficult to replace him.

Nevertheless we need one of the 3 hopefully a KP goal kicker  who can also do a small support in the ruck and around the ground. I as m not in the camp that wants to totally restrict JVR from rucking. He is too good a player to not use him like he could be a top class defender later in his career. Part of him is his total commitment and competitiveness and he is an asset getting the ball in any capacity. IMO it is also a great strength to have JVR flexible. Put him behind the ball for 5/10 mins. If he is not getting it up forward. 

Goody has players at his disposal for cameos and changes that he could utilise if he broadened his thoughts and had the dare to do it. A little bit of Sam Mitchell and Bevo is what we need. Kossie’s start of a quarter cameo can be at any time or can be for 10 minutes for a change up just as him at full forward one out is a great move by Simon. Only Kossies lack of discipline also cost  us in the Semi. 

So a mid year player get looking JT and TL. It may well be a game changer for our season Who knows. 

Expressions of interest D/Lers?

I know some may feel this is too early and it's certainly out of place in the thread about Angus' retirement, but hearing something positve here will give me some relief.  What if anything can the club expect from those %#&#^s at the AFL?

Our compensation should be that we can sign Uncle Byron. Plays round 13 plus a 10 week suspension gets him through to round 24.

If you know what I mean.....

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    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
