    Lyon's Plea to Petracca: Be Like Max

    Excuses are the meat of a lie wrapped in the skin of reason
  2. Well done Demonland admins. As a suggestion can send J-Money the link to the Jesse Hogan Trading thread as prereading for the interview and for him to pick his favourite 'mean tweets' to read aloud during the podcast?
  3. Can you ask what Peter thinks about the muppets on here that think they could negotiate trades better than Josh Mahoney and how they could best help next year? E.g.should they come down to the club and advise or do they serve the club best from behind their keyboards.

    Rating Josh Mahoney

    The jury still out on Col Silvia to Freo trade which netted us Bernie Vince. A full preseason and Col could have been anything.

    Apparently we mighy be looking to trade Hogan who has said he is open to returning home to Perth if a mutually agreeable trade can be facilitated. Word is Freo would be the club but apparently their head of football is looking for featgers rather than improving their average list and being diffficult. My sources suggest a trade will either happen or it wont. Stay tuned.

    May simply trying to make sure GCS get value from trading him. Not onlike when Chip went to Hawthorn.
  8. Not sure im sold on KK as I cannot pronounce his name. Suggest we go after a Jack or a Smith.

    Mahoney could do the deal, shake Bells hands and say "Belly, go f_$k yourself"

    Fagan should fight Bell to settle the matter.

    Can we have a competition where we nominate the most absurd posts in this thread and then ask Peter Jackson to read out the top ten for Wednesdays podcast?

    What if they throw in McCarthy as steak knives?

    Farewell Dom Tyson

    Dom was really important for our young side when he came over from GWS and was arguably our best inside mid. He showed alot of character to work back into form playing in a position he isnt ideally suited on the wing. Hope he plays alot of games with North over the next few years and finishes a 150-200 game player.

    What would Mitch Cleary know? The media are all over the place with this one and suggests that aside from Hogan, his Manager, Melbourne and Freo the rest of us are in the dark. I'd also suggest that Freo's 'official' offer is noise that means very little. One of four things will happen: 1. Jesse stays at Melbourne 2. Jesse is traded to Freo or another team, most likely in Perth 3. Jesse signs an extension to remain at Melbourne beyond next year. 4. Jesse retires

    Where has Jesse stated he wants to go to Freo. This is not fact, it is speculation. We have no idea what is driving this, whether it is Jesse wanting to go back to Perth or the club wanting him to declare where his future is this trade period.

    Not being able to afford May is more in terms of picks. In terms of being able to financially afford players we would not only look at how a prospective player would fit within our Total Player Payments based on contracts but also ensuring we have headroom to manage the overall health of our list well into the future. E.g. We could backend a 4 year contract but should do so in a responsible manner.

    A couple of years ago Roos said noone has ever done what Jessie did in winning the rising star the way he did, and then Mahoney says this. Very Trump like in their language, love it.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    An added benefit of May being in his prime is that we have one of Oscar Mc / Frost playing second tall for a couple of seasons before becoming our key defender. It fills a gap and gives us some deoth and scope for development.

    Looks fake, photoshop job and a poor one at that, there is noone cheering when he does amazing things its just an empty staduim with bluescreen soecial efdects. Pass.

    Is he wearing a Freo scarf?
  23. chookrat

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    I have it on good authority that Jesse Hogan will attend the B&F on Monday night and when he gets up to make a speech he will don a Freo scarf and launch into an impassioned plea to his teammates to never give up and never surrender, he will then hold up the Freo scarf before setting it alight and declare 'I am Melbourne' thus ending the Norm Smith curse and speculation re his playing future. Mark my word!

    JKH signs on for another year

    Oliver doesn't care if you don't like him

    What I love most about our team is that the players never winge or complain, they just roll up to the next contest and go harder when it doesnt go their way. In my view Goodwin sets this standard by never complaining about the umpiring which cascades to the playing group. Compare this to Geelong where the coach carries on like a pork chop, Danger flops around and Ablett winges when he cops some contact. To Selwoods credit he doesnt complain much.
