How is Reg looking this pre season fellas?
One of our posters who goes to almost every training and does handy write ups about em says he looks as good as ever. Paraphrasing, but I interpreted it as him no longer labouring out there like he did last year. So hopefully back to normal.

Sadly no Reg Grundy mo on display :(

Actually Lynch was on about 500,000 and will be again in 2021 So let’s see if Grundy can offer double the value Lynch does...
Because Lynch was on a backloaded contract, he only had to perform to a $500K contract standard in 2020? So we can look forward to a $1.5m standard season in a couple of years?
That has got to be the most ridiculous statement so far this year.

Well no surprises there - he is exactly the same on nicks

Sometimes I read this stuff and think that someone is trying to pull our collective legs...but to keep it going against a bloke that's already won a couple of B+F's and been a dual AA is just childish jealousy. So he makes more money than you'd like to pay him....get over it.
Alongside Darcy Moore and Taylor Adams, Grundy is a fantastic advertisement for our club. He's socially conscious off the field and a true competitor on the field.
If you really want to complain about people not being worth their wages....turn your vitriol towards Canberra.
The city I live in (and its inhabitants) gets a bum rap, thanks to the politicians who fly in here to meet at Parliament House very once in a while :)

Do we know what was actually wrong with him last year? Was he carrying an injury?

Nothing has come to light. Might just not have had his head in the game with hub life. As I've said elsewhere, he didn't build on his stellar 2019 season but still wasn't anywhere near as bad as some suggest.
If he was a full forward he went from an 80 goal season to a 50 goal season. It was a poor year for him, but pretty bloody good for most other ruckmen.

No motivation to perform now he's got his lifelong contract.

Would have played a lot better if the club held off contract negotiations till after the season instead of caving first week of January!
Don't worry, that thought did cross my mind and if he got the sooks over Hub life then that is just disappointing because on the money he is on, We should expect better than that

Any chance you can stop going on about his contract?

Here is a forum rule you should know about -
  • This is a forum for Collingwood supporters, not Collingwood detractors, so if you dip predominantly into the latter, you leave yourself open to sanctions. Repetitive negative agendas will be watched closely and actioned.

He doesn't give a sht about rules because he knows they aren't enforced.
He's a hardened troll on 2 sites and you keep feeding him.

If only people so quickly jumped to the defence of a previous Copeland trophy, AA, premiership player who copped nothing but vitriol from this and other Collingwood forums...

Yet Grundy is untouchable despite likely never doing 2 of those things...

It's great people come to 'discussion' forums just to hear like minded people say how great everything is and ignore any negativity. Can't stand anyone who dares to express a different opinion.

Of course some of these same posters have no problems having negative opinions on other players...
He’s a good person though, so there’s that.

Your opinion is garbage though.

So you're justifying your unreasonable criticism of Grundy by pointing out that Cloke was unjustly unreasonably criticised. Makes sense to me:drunk:
