    Jesse Hogan Trade to Freo

    I must've missed the resolution of the Wingard / Burton kerfuffle.

    You've just gone for the ultimate shoot-the-moon. Immense kudos if it makes the crater. Hell, I'm giving credit just for trying.

    Once someone has expressed a desire to play for Fremantle under Lyon, does 'right mind' really bear consideration?

    See, now that seems sensible enough. Doomed.

    I had a reliable auditory hallucination that one of the issues other clubs perceive as a problem with Hogan is that he allegedly wanted to go to Fremantle. List managers and coaches just not prepared to take the risk trying to manage something they just can't understand. Rumours are he's had this condition for years and it has been interfering with his focus, but it has only become a serious problem recently. Please help raise awareness: Wanting to go to Fremantle, together we can find a cure.

    Jesse Hogan Trade to Freo

    Hogan is in the situation of someone who for years has never quite been able to let go of an ex, with that ex constantly trying to convince you to leave your partner. Finally you have the heart-to-heart with your partner, the 'I love you but I can't let go of my ex and I need to see this through' and then the ex says 'oh, no, not really, I was just saying that, I don't actually want to be with you for real, too much responsibility'. Now Hogan is left where? In the situation of begging his ex to take him, going back to his old partner who still loves him, or trying to start out all over again with someone else? Whatever the case, it is hard to imagine any of Hogan's family being happy about this. The harder Freo have pushed in the past, the more Hogan's family will be angry about the bizarre behaviour now.

    Sitting out a year is the Fremantle way of playing football. Sylvia, McCarthy, Bennell... Lyon...

    Hogan is not a free agent of any kind next year, he's just a dude without a contract. As has been explained on this thread about once every 7 pages.

    One of the key reasons many biscuits really have lost favour and texture in the last 10-15 years is the replacement of proper butter or vegetable oils with cheaper palm oil. Best part is, palm oil can still be labeled as 'vegetable' oil. Which is funny anyway because the oil is from a fruit. That dull feeling in your mouth is basically the taste of dead orang-utans mixed with the tears of child labourers. Mmmmm-mmmm. Also, I hear Fremantle are now also offering a direct trade of their 500g of palm oil for our 1kg of full-cream butter. But who would even buy a biscuit from those dodgy buggers?

    Hmm, I wonder if Hogan might just be thinking to himself 'hey, self, seems like every year there is a top player desperate to leave Fremantle, and they seem like a serious basket case on field, and seems like they routinely stuff prospective players around because their ego wont let them get sensible deals done... maybe Freo aren't going to be the best environment for me to become the best player and person I can be?'

    The Day the Contract Died

    Yep, there needs to be a general reform of the trade system. I've got ideas but I'll spare you all a rant!

    Eh, well, 'bourgeois' doesn't cut it these days. Just picture that little layer of people who by 'virtue' of their status and connections manage to be above the full set of law, common sense, executive accountability, and so forth. Our Gil is most certainly in there, on all counts, it seems. It is a tight club, and very much personal invitation only. And very much able to be inherited. It also conforms to De Tocqueville's classic thesis about the privilege of a redundant aristocracy being a key driver of social unrest. Consider the possibilty that the absence of women and migrants in top executive roles (both public and private) is less about the 'women and migrant categories' being excluded and more about 'absolutely everyone' being excluded. Think I'm kidding or exaggerating? Here's a wikipedia entry that could just as easily be title 'what does inherited super-privelege look like in Australia today'. McLachlan grew up on his family farm 'Rosebank', located in Mount Pleasant, South Australia. His parents are Angus, a former first class cricketer, and Sylvia.[1][3] He is the eldest of four brothers: Hamish, Will and Banjo.[1] His uncle, Ian McLachlan, was an Australian government Minister for Defence, and was long term President (up to 2014) of the South Australian Cricket Association. After completing secondary school as a boarder at St Peter's College, Adelaide,[1] he obtained a Bachelor of Commerce at the University of Adelaide in 1995 and a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) at the University of Melbourne in 1996, where he was a resident at Trinity College. He later completed the Senior Executive Program at Stanford University.[1] He is married to Laura Blythe, who was a fellow resident at Trinity College and is the daughter of former Spotless Chairman, Brian Blythe

    See, when I have dumb ideas, I put them aside, let them stew for a couple of days then look at them again. And when I realise how dumb they were, I just quietly pack them away and never mention them to anyone because I prefer not to look like an idiot. The trouble with the aristocrat class is, they barely even care if their idea is good, they just want to be able to say 'look, I have ideas'. Because being 'an innovative, bold risk taker' is part of the rationale of 'why I deserve so much more than anyone else'. If only we coudl re-attach the old 'and I take the hit if it fails' part. Useless snob scumbags on seven figure incomes give the right squirts, they do. I wonder who argued the case for no doing the stoopud?
