    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    I don't believe Goody will want a player on his list next season that isn't 100% committed to the long term Demon cause. Nor should he. For that reason, i believe a deal will be done for Jesse next week.As much as I love Jesse as a player, he now has to go.

    This thread is now getting deep.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    I was from the camp that said we shouldn't be trading Hogan unless he wanted to leave. Well it seems he wanted to leave. And to me, given Freo's back peddle, i think this is now a major problem for us. If i was a player at Melbourne, i would not want to be going into battle with someone who no longer wants to be there. And if I were our coach, I'd be telling management to get him out of the club. For this reason i don't think our management are at all happy with Freo.

    Ethan, what has given you this though?

    Go home factor

    The “go home factor” may be real for some, but also a convenient excuse for others who simply want a better deal.

    As we appear to be going round in circles, I’d like to ask a more pressing question. At what point in time would it be tactful to delete Jesse from our DL banner and who do we replace him with? Not sure when, but my vote would be Gus.

    Go and get Gaff!

    Yep you are correct. But if you want facts here rather than opinions, then here’s one: Gaff committed an act of undisciplined thuggery. Bugg lost me when he flipped, so too has Gaff.

    I’m in the minority but I’d prefer us not to chase Gaff. IMO he is damaged goods. WC won a premiership without him. So can we

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Interesting to note that this thread started in mid July when some pseudo jurno had the audacity to write that he thought Hogan would be gone at the end of the year. Our members jumped all over him - typified by this comment by our DL Administrator: “This isn't even a rumour. It is an unfounded and uninformed opinion from an irrelevant ex-footballer.” Did he really know something back then, or was he just shooting the breeze?

    Aaron vandenBerg not going - signs a new deal!!!

    As with Hogan, if VDB needs to leave for personal reasons then I wish him the best. However, I would love for him to do a full preseason, show what he is capable of this coming year and then judge him. I think he is far better than a lot are giving him credit for, and has that aura of fear around him that perhaps only Viney and Nev have in our squad. We are supposedly chasing May for that very reason. Yes he has some disposal issues, but he is certainly no worse than others in the team - like Jones, Tyson, ANB and even Brayshaw in this regard - but 2 years out of the game can do that to your skill base. IMO he needs another year before he can be truly judged.

    So sorry to see Jesse go. But unlike one particular poster I wish him every success in the West.

    Post Match Discussion - Preliminary Final

    If we are being really honest, I don’t think any of us on here, mid season, thought we’d get this far. So what we have achieved has really excited me, and I think deep down all of us are finally proud of our Dees, despite the complete capitulation yesterday. Some month so ago I said that 2019 will be our year. Given how much we achieved this year, and the growth that will come from the experience and pain of yesterday’s loss, I still think we are a cert next year.

    Dees shutdown star eyes biggest scalp yet.

    Personally i'd like to see Joel Smith tagging Issac Smith. I think he'd do a great job. Don't ask me who we drop though.
