West Coast Eagles will be sitting back laughing their heads off at Freo.  They know they have a time which will be top 8 for the next 5 odd years, young midfield group.  They can't wait to get their hooks into Hogan as soon as Kennedy is done, Hogan and Darling set up the Eagles for a couple more potential flags.

Watch this space.

I would not be so certain, on Darling long-term in Perth.

Unless he turns up over at CockBurn, sometime soon.

I would temper laughing at Freo right now. There something more to come. The only plausible thing is they will not trade Neale and won't have pick 5. 

Also to accept 5 and 23 for Hogan is just not on. 5 and 11 at worst.

Melbourne are furious after the Dockers declared on Friday they were no longer pursuing Demons forward Jesse Hogan, having backflipped on an in-principle agreement with his management to offer Melbourne pick No.6 for the 23-year-old.

How underhanded is that - to turn around and trade it to Port.  I knew Bell couldn't be trusted.

Had they not made that in principle agreement, this would not have ever got to first base. 

It is one thing to p-ss off MFC but not a good idea to p-ss off Jesse's manager by reneging on the deal.  It just makes the manager look a bit foolish to not get the deal done for his player.  So, don't like Freo's chances of Jesse's manager knocking on their door again!

Preuss arriving, Weed developing, Hogan staying. 

Hogan to CHB as discussed.  No need for May.

Short term solution. Hogan won’t be at Melbourne beyond 2019

Delighted to keep the big fella, but let's sign him to an extension for three more years asap.

Freo, on this display have no trade credibility at all and Hoges should burn his bridges there. They have treated him appallingly and hopefully he will dismiss them in future,

Why not? He played there as a junior.

Yes maybe but at least Schwab left when they were a top 4 side, Schwab done good things for them, people forget that Schwab was a good CEO, once, then he let the power get to his head.

'Did" good things, but otherwise you're right. He was good for Freo and did alright in his first stint with us.

Strangely I don't think I'd want to play poker against Bell.

Either would I. He’d trip over, spill his beer over the table and knock over everyone’s chips!

Bell would stand up at 11PM and say "that's it boys, I'm going home"

The boys: "You're down 300 bucks. Pay up!"

Bell: "Oh no. You only have to pay if you play right to the end. I'm getting out early. That's coz I'm smart."

(Bell then cops a beating like MFC and Hogan would like to give him now)

Must admit, I’m 100% in the same boat. He’s a gun forward, end of story. We are still yet to see his full potential, I would personally have him as a high CHF/forward flanker. I also suggested that we train some defensive capabilities into both he and Weiderman to give them the ability to swing them back. TMac we already can play defensively if needs be so let’s make all of the swing men and suit our needs match by match. 

Also West Coast showed that with the right game plan you can play with multiple big men in the team.

I'm not sure if this has been fully played out but I am sure that we being the public are not privvy to all of the machinations of this saga.

However, if Jess Hogan remains at the club for 2019 then I would hope that there is a concerted effort on the part of the club to retain him for longer than one season and that will depend on the professionalism of the club and its employees which includes the playing group.

On playing ability alone however, we know what he's worth - this is not a good start for Peter Bell and the administration at Fremantle who, based on what I've seen, have conducted themselves deplorably.

Also is E'd the stik figure in the Wood-Pile.

 

He wood be wanting deWeide, out of US.

I reckon Tom Langdon will be seen at Freo, very soon.

 

The time is now, to get Weides contract extension happening. !

I think it's just Mahoney being pragmatic. Everyone with a half a decent sheep's brain knows that the Hogan trade is the key to any other downstream trade target so why say otherwise? You just make yourself out to look like a dill.

Also, Mahoney has mentioned 'other deals' are reliant on the Hogan trade so the mentioning of May only, is somewhat already diluted by these other possibilities.

I'm not sure you make yourself out to look like a dill if you don't mention May in the Hogan trade. 

There's no need to signal your intention. Less is more.

Who then? Can’t be Freo. Even if they’re banking on Hogan coming on the cheap next year this is still a massive balls up for a club that is wallowing down the arse end of the ladder. No guarantees what might happen in 12 months. Garry Lyon got it right - “getting cute” like that has a way of coming back to bite you on the bum. Watch the pressure get heaped on Ross as the losses and thrashings mount next season. No-one at Freo will be laughing then. Absolute idiots.

aha Sherlock.... I was wondering when the manager was going to be mentioned.

Starting to make sense.

Was worried that Mahoney had said 5 and 23 but it was the manager.

It was the dog not barking that was strange Watson.

I’m speechless. Fremantle really are a joke. 

Bell thinks he's FBI hostage negotiator quality.

But he has no idea. If he did the opposite and simply accepted everyone's first offer no questions asked, he would have completed the deals Freo need and would be lauded as a genius by his supporters right now.

Watch Jesse hand Mays ar$e to him next time they play on each other 

Would be the first time against decent opposition. 

Just think for a moment.

MFC want May....not Hogan.

Load ... repeat....load.... repeat.

May will make Hogan sook.

I was hoping it would be MFC May....Freo Hogan when that happens.

Or possibly Lions need an Johnathon Browne understudy.

Could we work the Beams deal to Collingwood into this charade ?
