    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    And he wouldn't get that at Melbourne with a flag to boot????????

    I would have thought that too but 'the chart has flipped' as GW would say. Freo have professed their love to Jessie for years, he finally does something about it and in effect they reject him. From what I've seen and heard about Jesse that will hurt him deeply and that little Freo fan inside him just might be gone. He knows he is loved at Melbourne and that love is tangible. I wouldn't be surprised if he re-signs long term with us now. I certainly hope so.

    Not quite 'feather in cap' worthy Peter, but something has been inserted somewhere!

    Is it too late to renege on the Jeff Farmer trade? Maybe.......but Kobe is ours!!! 😈

    In his very first statement he made the trade period about him. He won't pass his 3 month probation..

    I thought Burton at Adelaide was the worst AFL club administrator but Bell may get the gong.

    I see.....the club aimed to make finals and didn't. Your right - unforgivable. Let's strive for the spoon and if we do better - you'll come back? As Harry Who once said......... Amazing....

    I noticed - but you don't want criticism for your criticism!!! We have all felt that way over the years but most value the loyalty needed to persevere. Melbourne is one of only 2 clubs who have improved each of the past 4 years so your underdelivering reference is harsh. Of course players will do and say silly things on and off the field occasionally. Look at events of this week. See the bigger picture and remember why you started barracking.

    I would be disappointed if the reasons you stated for not renewing are real but I am not arguing that people wouldn't be that superficial. It's good that you raise this as it makes it hard for the club and loyal supporters to challenge the absolute disdain that the AFL treats our club as it proves we are lightweights compared to most of the others. We have improved in so many areas as a club but not in the eyes of the AFL as fixtures of recent years and other decisions attest (eg $500k fine for being NOT GUILTY of tanking). We continue to be rogered at any opportunity. I hate the style of the bullies in clubland but they get what they want from the AFL. If you have the brand and the memberships you will get your way - just shout louder if it doesn't happen initially. We can't use that tactic because we are not respected. I don't know if anything other than success will change things but we can play a role. I cannot fault the club in it's efforts and direction to achieve this and I and the other 21,899 will enjoy it so much more knowing we have and will always stick fat. I have personally been responsible for 10 ongoing MFC Memberships over the years and see it as a responsibility to sell and lobby membership to 'barrackers'. The incumbent staff/board can't do it without the support of us true believers. We finally have more than hope to sell so challenge those supporters you know to be members.
