The Incredible Hulk - Jesse Hogan

I thought it was his worst game for the year watching it live. Not to say it wasn’t a good game, just not as good as all his others. 

Just saw the stats, 22 touches, 8 marks and 3 goals. He is in some sort of form if that’s a quiet game. What a beast. 

His stats are starting to move into elite territory as a tall forward.

The thing that has stood out most to me this season and was evident on the weekend was his disposal. He hits targets whether its 15 or 40 metres and under pressure too. He generally makes good decisions when he has clean possession. I think the best comparison right now might be Roughead in his prime. He's got similar impact across the ground. Feels like we're starting to see the player he wants to be and he's tracking nicely for that peak prime of mid-late twenties.

I couldn’t get over his field kicking on the weekend

It looked like he was drilling 50-60m passes

He is a very, very special player

His first year he was the contested marking king and really coming to notice by making Rance look like just another defender. He won the 2015 rising star, the first forward since Nick Riewoldt in 2002. Melbourne were average, it was all about Jesse.

IN 2016 it was the poor body language, the suspect kicking action and the never ending will he or won’t he leave 18 months BEFORE his contract was due to finish. Melbourne were average, it was all about Jesse

Last year the poor bastard had the well documented year from hell. Melbourne were ok but there was a lot about Jesse. 

This year Jesse is currently 4th in the Coleman kicking a very economical 20 goals 8. He is racking up midfielder disposal numbers whilst running further than nearly all others. Melbourne are quite good but it’s not about Jesse. 

I get the feeling that he is way happier and plays better when he just part of a team and it’s not about him..

Unbelievable player, super lucky to have him.

This year looks like he's genuinely loving it, loving the club and loving his team mates.

He was quiet when Tmac was firing. But when Tmac slowed and tired after halftime Hogan took over. His kicking definitely has improved.

The Hulk really is incredible.  20 touches, 11 marks and 5 goals.

His workrate is phenomenal.. now up to third in the Coleman with 26 goals on the season.  And the goals are only half the story.

All Australian lock.

Plus twice he gave handballs off for goals, could have been more goals.

For those that questioned the beginning of the Hogan era - this is what we saw: a bloke who could go up the ground for 14kms, set up goals with his footy IQ, and make men look like boys one out in front of goals.

He is terrifying.

He’s like Nick Riewoldt with Oliver’s hands.

And his kicking (both field and shooting for goal) has been exceptional. Becoming a wonderful player.

After the horrible year he went through last year, it's great to see him out there enjoying his footy. He clearly has lots of mates at the club and shares the love around. Handballed 2-3 goals off today too, so could've kicked a few more. He's in All Australian form at the moment. Absolute freak talent. So glad he's in red and blue!

Does anyone really think that he could possibly enjoy playing under Ross Lyon with his 6-8 goal a game forward line? (Could anyone for that matter - doesn’t look like anyone does at the moment)

Seriously, what a special talent who appears to be enjoying every moment (well almost, other than the after siren play on brain fade)

Well done Jesse - we love you and look forward to many years kicking multiple goals and assisting Demon teammates kick many more.

Yes, a poster in the sack Goodwin thread, who suggested Hogan would leave the club because Goodwin was playing him out of position up the field. :rolleyes:

I’m absolutely in awe of Jesses form this year. He has taken the next step and has developed into much more than a key forward.

As some commentators have mentioned his huge tank and Riewoldt like presence and work rate have seen him develop beyond to what I could’ve dreamed this season.

I'm surprised there are not apologies from posters in this thread.

Some of the comments by dolts re Hogan were pathetic.

Hulkamania running wild on you brother.

So long as he doesn't emulate some of the Hulkster's more questionable after hours activities (such as with old lady Love Sponge) then I don't mind this nickname.

Who was it that had a go at the Hulkster? Should be ashamed of themselves.

Just had a quick skim through the early days of this thread, and was reminded that Leigh Matthews said Hogan was no good when the ball hit the ground. Brilliant. 

Fits right in with some of the idiotic claims and comments about Jesse in this thread. Comical stuff.

He is something else.

He now looks happy, and happy to be playing his role. The consummate team player. That’s the big difference.

Is it just age, developing maturity, the change in game plan, team success, mentoring, coaching, coming to terms with where he is at in life??

But he has become a star but one that has his ego in check who is playing a team role.
