Very, very sad.  Very, very sad for the young man.  He has had a lot on his young shoulders.  Hopefully, people will back off on him and recent performances.

Hope Jesse got there in the last few days.  A tough time awaits him.  Hope he takes all the time he needs.  Football matters not in these circumstances.

Edit:  A very moving update: Jesse's family were in Melbourne for the ANZAC Eve game and his father passed away in Melbourne.  "The family had been in Melbourne for several weeks and Tony saw his son play on Monday night against Richmond, before Tony took a bad turn on Anzac Day". http://www.theage.com.au/afl/afl-news/jesse-hogans-father-tony-passes-away-20170427-gvtg9p.html  Wonderful support by the club to keep that quiet so the family could enjoy some time without cameras and journos all over the place.

Very tough. Makes all this stupid coverage about him smoking and dancing seem so damn trivial. Even that article had to mention him smoking. ffs.

 I'd tell him to take minimum 3 weeks. I was 38 when my Dad passed away and its a crap time.

I'd let him do whatever he wants this weekend. If he wants to play, let him play. If he wants to be in Perth, let him be in Perth.

My condolences to Jesse and his family. My dad died in almost identical circumstances. At Ieast I was with him when he died. The pressure to be far away must have been enormous.

So sad to lose your father at any time, particularly at such a young age and when you're on the other side of the country. Hope Jesse and his family can get through this miserable time, I have no doubt the club will allow him the time he needs.

Grief is an individual thing. Not only are we different but in the end its how the griever deals with their loss. Always tough to lose a parent.

It's his and the club's call.

RIP. 

And the footy media and all the tools that panned him can all go jump. A number of media outlets owe him an apology.

I was 31, Gorg.  Was 15 months after I was married, and 10 months before my wife gave birth to our first child.  You can imagine the roller coaster of emotions in that 2 year period!

Jesse will do what Jesse thinks is right.  None of us are to judge how he handles this.  I look forward to welcoming him back to the club at some stage in the future.

While we should never use grief as a motivator, I hope this does give the boys a little bit more to play for this weekend.

Beautifully put LH.

Strength to Jesse and his family.

I hope the club (and I'm sure they will) will give him all the time he needs, I just hope they make it clear he isnt letting anyone at the club down if he needs multiple weeks off.

I'd say take as much or as little time as needed. As BB said, grief is an individual thing - some find having something else to focus on helps.

By the way, I'm proud of the way the club has handled this in recent times. It's been obvious in recent times that Jesse has been up to his neck in it - a few on here failed dismally at reading between the lines and panned the club over letting him go to Perth - but ultimately the message was always one of absolute support, without ever exposing the public to the details of what was going on. I have no doubt Jesse will get the support he needs from the club - this is what good clubs are about.

Not to mention a few on here in the smoking thread.

Does anyone know if he was able to be in Perth to say his final goodbyes?  Having been in a similar situation when my father passed, I was fortunate enough to have some notice as to his deteriorating condition and was able to drive from Sydney to Canberra to be with him during his last hours. I hope Jesse was able to do the same.

Some of the posters on demonland should probably take a moment to reflect on some of the overly strong posts re hogan and the recent trivial issues on his break in WA. We were told his dads health had deteriorated.

The Age story says that Jesse's father was in Melbourne when he passed away.

So sorry to hear this sad news. My thoughts and prayers are with Jesse and his family. I lost my mum almost a year ago to cancer and it was the worse thing I had ever been though.

RIP 🙏🙏
