Max Holmes



Recommended Posts

We were going to draft him.

Geelong traded up by a spot.

Restricted out of contract.

Don't know our cap sito, but if we have space, throw the cheque book at him

IF WE HAVE SPACE!

We could sign LeBron James to a super max extension this off season I reckon.

Apparently Holmes cracked it being left out of their grand final side a couple years ago

He won't be a free agent, we'll have to trade for him.

Do clubs really trade fair value

We got nowhere approaching LJ's worth and if Petty goes we might get a high second round.

Don't know much about Holmes... what is he worth (both pick and salary)

Its a part of doing business. When you lose one you get unders, when one chooses to come your way you do better. If you work free agency to your advantage (in and out) you'll end up in front.

“Nowhere approaching LJ’s worth”?

You don’t think two first round picks was ”approaching” it?

No

when given the picks were both expected to be around 14. Luck made the second year pick higher

He was a pick 3 21 year old with proven high level skills. His $1M salary put him in the top 20-40 salary wise in the league

Not saying we could have done better but we got nowhere near his future worth

Jefferson in 2022 for example shows that pick 14/15 doesn't equal Jackson

Been thinking this a long time after it was highly public Geelong usurped us.. pace is big plus and would suit our mids given he’s more outside overall but can win it inside as well..

This.

We paid nowhere near Grundy's market value to get him to us. The fact we completely @#$%^& it up is a different issue. We also picked up BBB for a song and got Langers for a set of steak knives.

    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

    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
