That is about .02% of the thread that was unacceptable. That would make it the most acceptable thread on DL. 

 

An irrelevant statistic given that 97.43% of the thread is unintelligible.

But care a thought for the administrators. 50 per cent want it closed down 50 per cent don’t.  The administrators close the thread and then get criticised by the other half. I think their position is completely understandable. 

I agree.  But my point was that if a poster says a thread should be closed, then they shouldn't come back to it later and again say it should be closed.  If they really think that the topic is exhausted they should close it for themselves by not returning to it.

Sorry, missed your point, I agree.

It’ll be disappointing if Hogan gets booed but there are less enlightened and intelligent supporters that are sure to.

There will be plenty of people playfully boo'ing an ex player without any spite, just because it comes with the territory of departing a club. Surely someone as highly intelligent and enlightened as you wouldn't set yourself up for the disappointment. 🙄

Its lame booing the departed. 

Surely better that we exhibit studied indifference boredom even. 

Put frost on him and watch him carry on

Booing for some, indifference for others.  But what does it matter. 

It depends on the mood on the day and whether you become part of the lynch mob that is part of the supporter psyche of the passionate or separate from the mob while you sit in the MCC enclosure,  tighten your butt cheeks and remain detached, aloof and dispassionate. 

I know which mob I will choose.

I’m well aware of the site’s policies Mr. Redleg. It’s why we heavily scrutinize that Tom Scully thread you started a while ago where about 2 pages of content have had to be deleted due to unacceptable posting.

Which thread is that? I know of no such thread on Demonland ... And who is that guy anyway? 😁

I’m a bit disappointed he was having tea and scones with Fyfe and Lyon while the season was still alive, but I won’t boo him. 

That being said, I don’t see the big deal about booing ex players as a general rule. It’s all a bit of pantomime fun regardless of who it is.

Personally, I think booing should be reserved for umpires and anyone associated with Collingwood.

Booing a guy who wanted to go home after he survived cancer and had his dad pass away from the same disease with within a few months?

Cool.

With May rolling into the backline I'm looking forward to watching Fritsch hopefully going forward.

We seemed a bit one dimensional with Jesse playing.

Much more unpredictable with TMAC Weid Tracc and Gawn floating forward. I think Fritsch is a Brad Green in the making if they give him the chance up front.

While a few weeks on I’m still disappointed that Hogan wanted to and has left, drafting May, KJ, and Preuss has strengthened our obvious areas of weakness. Add Lever coming back and hopefully Viney having an injury free year, and we have a strong platform for success in 2019.

A little more zip & skill on the wings, and another good small forward and defender would give us almost a perfectly balanced list.

The Hawks kept winning flags after Buddy left, and I’m hoping that our best wins in the last few years were without Hogan in the team, is an indicator we can cover losing him.

Looking forward to another successful season in 2019, making top 4 and being in a position to have a real crack at the Flag would be terrific!

Go Dees!!!!!!!!

I know it is not the first time this sentiment has been expressed but the Club had decided before the end of the season that both parties would be better off if Jesse was to head back West. This is coming from an ex 20+ year employee and a life member of the MFC

Glad I got to watch him in the red and blue, and wish him all the best in the future (except when he plays us... then I want to see duck eggs on the stat sheet).

hard to see this thread getting to the mythical status of 500 pages but perhaps a few instagrams from young Hogan in Perth could get us another ten pages and then who knows

A few good games early in the season, a couple of 5+ goal games, then a Range Rover / enter the dragon reincarnation, stirring up all the chicken little's about how we were robbed. 50+ pages easy.

I noticed during the week that the AFL Store was selling large pictures of three Melbourne players (Gawn was one, can't remember the other two) and Hogan in his Melbourne gear which was marked down by 50%. I suspect they will still sell zero. Even if given away at no charge I can't see who would want one.

He plays for the Shockers now...He will get stick like any other ex player. 

Hopefully our defence keeps him quiet, i have no qualms with MFC Members reminding him where he once was. 

We were very good to Jesse.....
