    thanks. Seemed odd to advertise the 'pass only' option on an MFC site.

    When I looked at that site (for relative overseas) it wasn't clear to me if the $170 membership included the watchafl pass or whether you had to pay an extra $125 to get that? Why is the pass listed separately if not so?

    Training - Friday, 14th December, 2018

    If they are going to kick over a dummy they might think of getting one with arms above its head. And go real high tech and have the arms waving about.

    Not if you are an executive in the April Fools League

    Down Memory Lane # 1

    If this Lyon bloke doesn't improve after half-time I reckon he'll be lucky to get another game.

    Shocking that the commentators keep describing the game rather than big-noting themselves while talking about almost anything else as they do these days.

    What’s the go with Essendrug?

    sorry no, just someone who reads too many old novels.

    What’s the go with Essendrug?

    I can appreciate it in the sense of understand it. But damme if I will ever appreciate it the sense of value, respect, prize, cherish, treasure, admire, Funnily enough footy seemed pretty good to me in the 60's when it wasn't a profit making venture.

    What’s the go with Essendrug?

    Possibly not. But it would be a lot easier to accept if they had been properly punished in the first place and more significantly if so many sycophants in the media and elsewhere hadn't bent over backwards to excuse their disgraceful behaviour. A bit like cover-ups being worse than the crime.

    I agree. But my point was that if a poster says a thread should be closed, then they shouldn't come back to it later and again say it should be closed. If they really think that the topic is exhausted they should close it for themselves by not returning to it.

    True. But I don't think it is unreasonable for those who think a thread should be closed to say so. As long as they don't keep coming back and saying it.

    For the next couple of years it is inevitable that here will be a Hogan thread either here or on the main board (which is where it will pop up as the season gets underway). No point in closing this till then.

    Well it will add a little interest to watching Freo matches on TV.

    If Hogan made it clear to all and sundry that he wanted to go home, then why not say we are happy for him to go home. No one would believe us if we said we'd hang on to him grimly.

    I'm not saying it will stop club's recruiting from WA, just make them very cautious, especially if the player is very young. As for it being driven by MFC, surely that was only because we knew he would either go home now or next year.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Dunno about paying too much, but I expect club's would always be losing them for too little. Almost unavoidable.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Whether he goes or stays, I expect this will put a dampner on Vic clubs recruiting young blokes from WA.

    I can't imagine what they could broadcast in any case. It's not as if the cameras will eavesdrop on the actual negotiations. So I'd expect a lot of clips of players highlights and repititions of stuff thst could be read in print in 2 minutes..

    Thanks. My computer seems stuck on this thread. Time to surface and breath. But I see that poll is on what we want, not what we think will happen.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    A few posters claim they are in a downtrodden minority on whether Hogan stays or goes. I'm not so sure D'land is one way or the other - How about a simple poll to enliven what looks like being a slow day?

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Luckily I've forgotten what you say will happen. But what saddens me is that anyone would take such pleasure in crowing when they turn out to be correct. If you have inside info then there is no credit in being right. If you haven't, then it is just an opinion in what was pretty much a 2 possibilities situation - will he or won't he. I'm more interested in reading the pro and con arguments.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Excuse my ignorance, but is this the first time Fox have broadcast this? Not that I can imagine what 'this' is - a bunch of reporters talking in hushed tones outside closed doors?

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    I already apologised - see earlier post. I was inappropriately reacting to you when I should have been reacting to the stream of such opinion/guess=fact posts. But I expect my serotonin levels are low.

    Perhaps I was just anticipating this post earlier.

    True, I apologise.
