He will play, he will likely play very well, he will use it to milk some more money out of the Pies, the media will speculate, certain Bigfooty fans will troll, some will claim inside word he's gone, others will deny it, some will get their hopes up.

In the end somewhere between rounds 12 and finals he'll extend with the Pies for another 2-4 years on good money.

No way does JDG leave Collingwood, even if he gets a Godfather offer from another club. He will be a Pie for life,

No harm in other clubs like North asking the question, but it seems like a pointless exercise to me.. De Goey is a cult figure and fan favourite at the Pies, Eddie will find a way to look after him financially.

Wouldn't want him. Collingwood and Eddie are the only ones that can keep his indiscretions out of the media and public eye. It's either them or GWS/Sydney type that the AFL can protect too.
Lol. You would be over the moon if a 25 year old De Goey signed on from 2021 for a 5 year deal. He's a matchwinner and North have been denied every single time they have thrown a godfather offer at a star in recent years.

He would walk in and be one of your best players and is set to dominate in future years, he is an X-factor talent which means like the Dusty Martin types he is capable of doing things many others can't.

Provided the trade fee was right, any club would love him.

x-factor is just code for does something good every now and then but isn't that consistent. Martin is a match winner. De Goey isn't even in the same league. 1 can play in the midfield and has averaged more than 20 disposals in every season. DeGoey has played 5 seasons, hasn't averaged more than 18, has injury concerns, and had 1 good year - a grand final season.

I wouldn't be over the moon because I'm yet to see what he offers as a forward vs. Ziebell. One actually tackles and applies pressure in the forward line. The other is a front runner and disappears when the game is on the line.
Just because he Knocked 1.5 Million to play at North



DeGoey isn't Martin. North apparently offered DeGoey 900k and that's all he is worth. The only thing similar is the tattoos and angry face. That's where the similarities end. Martin is far superior.

I agree Martin is better, I'm not arguing otherwise, but I'm saying they share some attributes which is that ability to be deadly 1on1 inside 50. You used Ziebell as an example of that player. He's not in the same class as De Goey. He turns 29 next year and is yet to win an AA or club B&F, and while he hasn't played forward his whole career his best forward return is 35 from 22 games.

De Goey hasnt got those accolades yet either, but at 23 he just had a 48 goal season (2018). Followed that up with an injury effected 34 from 17 games. He isn't far off becoming one of the stars of the comp and by the time he's Ziebell's age it's almost certain he will have had the better career.

Its not just North, any club would love to have De Goey. He is just about ready to become a top 20 player in the comp.

It's simplistic to look at it from only a goals perspective. Last year Ziebell created more goals from tackles and turnovers than any other player in the league.

Also, it's hard to compare when Collingwood were #2 in the league last year and North overachieved. The quality in Collingwood's team makes it a lot easier for DeGoey.

Sure any club would love DeGoey but within reason. He's not worth more than 1 million a year because he can't play as a midfielder. He's basically another Stringer at this point.

Don't think I've stated he's worth more than a million a year, but again worth is relative given it can cost more to move players. He could reach that level potentially.

Richmond couldn't afford him for example, but you'd have to think he'd be within the 800-900k per year bracket for his next deal, much depending on how he performs in 2020.

Yeah it’s hard work keeping his volunteer work with the Salvo’s under wraps. Could only imagine the outcry if that got out in to the public domain.

North offered $1m, that’s straight from Jordy himself.

An hour a week for 2 weeks is hardly volunteer work and it means little when he's doing it to repair his image. Come back to me when someone is doing it because they actually care.

DeGoey is 23

When Martin was 23 the Tigers were trying to trade him.

North do apparently, just don't have enough money and they have more spare than we do.
