    Jesse Hogan Trade to Freo

    Sun is reporting that Peter Bell is flying into Melbourne tomorrow to resume talks on a deal that will potentially include pick 5 and other picks, thus allowing us to secure May and KK. So, nothing new really, other than what we all knew - Bell was bluffing.

    Thank Christ there is only two days left

    Jesse Hogan Trade to Freo

    Has ETD gone to bed in the last 4 days? I feel like there hasn't been an hour gone by where he hasn't posted something, and even in that time he's said absolutely nothing of note. Extraordinary.
  4. His manager said today that, while he is still happy at Melbourne, he might be open to a move if the right offer came in. http://aflnation.com.au/2018/10/01/tyson-would-be-open-to-trade/ Interested to hear what everything thinks about this - would we do a deal considering that Kent will leave and AVB is also weighing up his future? It seems like it could be a large turnover for us considering how well we are going, but I guess this is what happens when you have greater depth, something we haven't had for a decade. Sounds like a few clubs have show some interest, but whether or not they would give us something decent in return is debatable.

    If you're sure that we're announcing the deal Monday, why post later that we 'need to get it done', as if it won't get done on Monday and there's a chance the deal may not go through at all? Classic

    Not to mention Richmond just gave Tom Lynch a 7 year contract on good money as well. Jesse isn't going home for peanuts.

    I wouldn't trust Ricky Nixon to sit the right way on a toilet seat.

    He probably knows a bit of what's going on, but there is no chance he is privy to what the players and clubs, are truly thinking. He is probably just talking about his own experiences.

    Does Pickering manage any of those players?

    Anyone seriously think he would go to Gold Coast? I thought it was family or bust for him, and GC is not only worse than Freo but further away from his family. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but I guess that's been the theme throughout this entire saga.
  11. Sam Edmund in the HUN is reporting that Dean Kent may look for more opportunities elsewhere next season as he wants more midfield minutes, something he is not guaranteed to get with us. Here is a little bit of what he (Edmund) had to say about it: DEAN Kent could leave Melbourne in search of greater opportunity. Kent remains sidelined with a hamstring injury suffered in the Round 5 loss to Richmond, but is understood to want more midfield responsibility ... It's understood Kent would prefer to stay at Melbourne, but is unlikely to get a deal to his liking at the Demons and is assessing his options. Thoughts? I think he has something to offer, but he is far too injury prone and I don't think he will get the midfield minutes he desires with us.

    We did. Austin Bradtke.

    Plus, Peter Bell said that they 'cannot meet our trade demands'. He's making out as if we are asking for four first rounders, three seconds, two thirds and a partridge in a pear tree. It's rubbish. What we've said we will take, which is the pick they get for Neale and #23, is more then reasonable and easily doable from their end. I don't know what Bell has been drinking but the bloke needs to get off it, and quickly.

    Jesse Hogan Trade to Freo

    Their logic is rubbish, though. Lachie Neale is worth 2 first rounders, but Hogan, a 23 year old key forward with 150 goals under his belt, isn't? Fair suck of the sav, Belly.

    The Steven May Thread

    We will agree to disagree. Before the injury Lever was on fire and our defence was superb. His skills and leadership was excellent. He has a decade left as a player and he will slot back in very nicely next year. He could also be a future captain of the club. I think we paid a very fair price, but happy to agree to disagree on this one, King.

    Lever is more important, and better, than May. He was worth every penny we spent on him.

    Jesse Hogan Trade to Freo

    Freo, having recruited some good young mids to play alongside Fyfe, now have the chance to set up their spine for years to come with Hogan and Lobb both keen to play there next year. They proceed to treat both players, and their respective clubs, with total disrespect. It sends a bad signal to any player who wants to go there in the future, and will turn off clubs when dealing with them in the future. Horrible stuff from a poorly run club.

    I see what you're saying now mate, and you may well be right. Let's hope it's not the case though and Jesse decides to stay long term!

    Jesse Hogan Trade to Freo

    I reckon we are fine in terms of how we handled it. I can only go by what is out in the public eye, but it sounds like Hogan instigated it, we supported it but said we are happy to keep him if the right offer doesn't come in, which it didn't. I think the club, from what I can tell, has handled it superbly so far.

    When I find out what makes it change then I'll let you know!

    Jesse Hogan Trade to Freo

    If he signs a long term deal over the summer then I'll be happy. However, if we can only hold on to him for another year and he bolts for West Coast, and we have missed out on May, then I'll be slightly disappointed. I'd love this to fire up Jesse for a big season in 2019. I think our club has handled this very professionally and I reckon Jesse will see that too.

    Would we take $cully back?

    'Satisfied' with his medical suggests that he may take some time to get back to full fitness. I can't see GWS off loading Scully, who is apparently only on 500k next year, for peanuts if they don't believe there is a potentially serious issue with his ankle.

    Would we take $cully back?

    It's a shame it's Scully as he's the exact type of player we need. I doubt, after the fall out of him leaving all those years ago, that he would want to come back here or feel comfortable doing so.

    Jesse Hogan Trade to Freo

    That's the sensible deal. Unfortunately, Freo have zero sensibility at the moment.

    I'd have him as a rookie. Nothing more.
