Certainly not wishing to gloat about any of this but it can only help our cause when the VFL teams have to disrupt their training plans for environmental issues, rather than us for a change.

Our turn will come. Always does.

Yep wouldnt have been much outdoor training for any Melbourne teams this week. Been pretty nasty and I cant imagine doctors would have been willing to risk it.

I half assume the Sydney teams were probably a bit interrupted as well pre-xmas break.

Afl.com reported Grundy signed 7 yr deal with pies
Big signing from them, though I don't know how secure I'd be feeling putting 7 years at presumably 900k+ for a Ruck. I'm personally not as sold on grundy as many others too, despite his undoubted talent he doesn't seem to be able to have the same impact with his hitouts as nic Nat, gawn, or even stef (his chemistry with the midfield is a cut above).

Of course all the above makes me super happy he's signed to Collingwood on a long term expensive deal. May their salary cap and list management flexibility be screwed forever

Yeah it's always going to look like a risk on day dot I suppose but the long term thing may support their overall cap mgmt I would think. There's a lot of cultural and lifestyle levers for Grundy to stay down there too I don't know if hed have locked in guaranteed 6.3M

God let's hope not. Can you imagine how smug Collingwood fans would be if they got their guy and it actually makes the rest of their list management easier? Bloody Eddie would probably find a way to reference it every game he commentates

Increases likelihood of Moore to Swans doesn’t it?

I hadn't been following it but as Daniher risk factor just keeps on increasing I'd say so. Moore to sydney is not a real risk or loss to our flag chances as it would be if he went to bulldogs hawks Freo blues or saints

My question is, is Moore to Sydney realistic?

What link is there for Moore to join Sydney? He’s not exactly the Buddy replacement that Daniher would be.

Not sure if it was Sydney directly but there have been rumours of him being the one squeezed out. Plus I feel like he might be one who would be ok without being in the Collingwood spotlight

I just don’t see Collingwood willingly losing any first team KPP’s.

That’s probably Collingwood’s short coming. They’re lacking in a genuine KPF, and are very shallow on KPP depth.

Grundy's 7 year deal is part of a changing landscape seen elsewhere.

Begs the question - who on our current list would you be happy for our Club to lock away for 7 years?
