ok sorry for saying 1. I forgot the level of pedantry that goes on around here and the inability to detect hyperbole I'll go with DA's huge quantity of 4 out of several hundred - and obviously it doesn't matter for the majority of others where there is no question of some go home factor. I mean seriously, comparing Oliver to Hogan? What he's a chance of returning to his town of population 1000 to play on the ball there is he? You know DAMN WELL there is a REASON it makes the news when Hogan does it because for most others it is not an issue, so stop playing dumb, as natural as it may come to you

" Even Roos mentioned it " oh you should have said that in the first place, now I'm convinced. FMD.

the problem is deep down you know what's going to happen and you're finding it very painful to deal with. Don't take it out on me

Now you even know how I'm feeling, deep down, apparently.  You know what all the clubs are doing with their players in their welfare program and I'm also playing dumb (although I'd be careful, Curry, that after a month off you would already be resorting to insulting posters.  I won't dob you in though like you've done to others, like me, before.)

I believe this is nothing, you believe the world is caving in.  Go for it and let's leave it at that.

so I'm supposed to cop this am I moderators

 

Sorry C&B, I was cheekily playing with the potential ramifications that your alias implies.  I'd assume a vinadaloo and a stout may produce said results. It was never intended as a character assassination.

yeah yeah relax

i will be bumping this one when the day comes and you can apologise then

I'm not sure what I'll need to apologise for, just letting you know that players around the league go home from time to time. 

But if the time comes that he leaves, and it makes you feel better, I'll happily apologise.

I have always said right from the start that i think Hogan will leave to go home eventually in the future. He loves Perth and is close to his family. His father is also pretty ill and i know thats affected him this year.

BUT people need to relax because him going home during the year is something the Football club has been doing since 2013. They do this to all our interstate boys. Club has been a big advocate on this hence why we rarely lose any interstate players to the 'Go home factor'

The Anzac long weekend the club sent Oliver back to Mooroopna to spend it with his folks.

it's obviously not the same thing though is it. Nobody is concerned Oliver will leave us for Mooroopna FC. So it's not even a thing worth saying is it.

Out of curiosity, does this mean he's not playing this week? Seems an awful lot of travel to go Gold Coast -> Perth -> Melbourne.

Dislocated his finger during the gc match so would be a chance to miss any way.

Deleted the post upon noting this in the article on the AFL website:

"Me and my brother went down to Lancelin yesterday and took the long boards out and got in the water. So that was good. Just a bit of a little bit of a freshen-up. I'll play this week, so all good."

It's like banging your head against a wall with Curry.  You gave more than one example, yet you've somehow proven his point.  The steam will be coming out of his ears in a minute...

Me and the Cuzzy Bee go way back. He's alright. He wears his emotions on his keyboard. Comes across over the top at times but I've always had time for him.

Yes it is worth mentioning because its proof just how good our club manages our young players and the culture we are building.

Be proud of the club for once in the way we look after our young talent. 

Its stuff like this the club does that will build that bond and relationship and players wanting to stay.

Assuming he is fit to play this weekend, it is hard to believe they would allow him to fly around so much and interfere with his preparation. That suggests that an exception is being made for him, which in itself is not good.

Yet what if that's one of the factors that keeps him happy and he re-signs?

Even if he goes you'll know you've got a club that is doing what it can to keep its players happy. 

It's not all doom and gloom.

I think he's gone home to discuss a very big decision with his family...

It may all be coming to a head.

Some questions for you to ponder: what if he plays a shocker this week because he is not properly prepared and it costs us the game? With all the effort that goes into conditioning the players... do you think that is good practice for the club to be engaged with? Bowing down to the needs of an individual at the expense of the side? Does that sound like typical Roos behaviour? Is it good culture to have star players calling the shots or should they be subservient to the bigger system? Like I said from the start, there is something unusual going on here, which is not good, simple as that.

interesting perspective

one thing that gives me hope is the fact Viney signed up big yesterday. Maybe provided a bit of inspiration?

That said, the Clay family, of one town over, may be trying to tempt him over to Richmond. Never underestimate the power of regional legends. Hang on, I think Gary Lyon was from the same town as Dick Clay, no problems.

Oh! Wait, did he play for Lemnos (the swans jumper) or Mooroopna (Geelong jumper)? The affiliation with local team jumpers may sway also him. 

Curse this damn world and its temptations!!!!

The only solution here is to move the whole club to Perth.

I'll second that solution.

Good points and I have already pondered them. Richmond have been letting Martin visit old mate in NZ, and apart from 3qts last week his form has been dog [censored]. I wouldn't be happy with that, but different circumstances. 

 

If Jesse's dad is sick then he had to go. A friend told me it was a scheduled visit so I'm not sure which story is true. 

If he plays, and plays badly I won't be happy, but I'm still content with the club looking after its young players. It's a conondrum.

Club would have given him a program to tick off while in Perth whether its a gym session or light run. Take into account that its an 8 day break and our main Training session isn't till friday morning. 

Its not the players calling the shots Curry its Roos Goody and PJ who are calling these shots. Billy Stretch also went back home to SA after the game on Sat night mate.

I don't know whether you guys got the segment in Vic but I just watched it here in Perf.

WHO said that it's about team success?

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
