You know what's great?

We've got something everyone wants, it's very, very scarce - which means you're going to have to give up something equally remarkable to get it, and we are very, very happy to keep it. 

This is the 'downside' of great drafting.

Well played MFC. 

Unfortunately that's no longer the case. We can't just trade Hogan to the highest bidder. If he decides to leave, he'll nominate a club, and we'll have to get what we can.

True, but at least we have some ability to negotiate (as opposed to walking out as a free agent).

Based purely on my gut instinct I think he's gone, I don't think it will be money I just think he will want to be back in WA.

If all of the pointless threads, from all of the football forums, formed their own forum - OF POINTLESS THREADS - In that forum, this would be the most pointless thread.

this is the no.1 asset in the comp, could be the difference between winning a flag or not wining one.

there are plenty of bits of worrying info.

heaps of current elite players have already set the precedent that loyalty no longer exists

how anyone can think that this is a 'pointless' discussion is beyond me. It is hard to imagine a more important one in fact.

My gut instinct is that it probably says more about the person making the gut instinct prediction than it does about what Hogan is likely to do.  And yes, that applies to my gut too.

Did Fremantle on trade first round pick for 2016 last year?

Sorry to read a player goes home mid week for a surf with his brother, he is gone if Fremantle have pick 1 this year you trade him this year if he doesn't sign by trade week.  Rapt if he stays but if we think he is going we need to maximise our return, Pick 1 and 2017 first round pick sounds about right, maybe a swap of a couple of picks their second round for ours.

I pity the fool that thinks in this manner.

He's contracted until the end of 2017.

It's a waste of time and energy.

 

 

Stevet Hemanj or Dan, you are so right.

If you have no control over a situation there is no benefit in wasting time on it.

Worrying has no benefit whatsoever.

It is fine to discuss contingencies and probabilities but spare me the Chicken Little's.

Of course he didnt go to talk to Freo. thats people trying to connect dots that dont exist. im sure he went home to visit family and friends in this day and age you dont have to fly to freo to discuss ontracts. still think hes gone but his visit got whipped up by the media

Good Post.  Its about club success over here as he has stated etc.

 

I am more rapt now with jack's re-signing this week and the team the recruiters have built.  Give me a strong midfield any day. Hogan can be replaced and won't win us the flag. That's the mid fields job.

 

This Sunday could be our watershed game!

okay - I can't help myself.

We can have varying opinions on him staying or going. - but to dismiss Hogan with he can just be "replaced and won't win us a flag"  - seriously.......

I would love to think he will remain loyal to his club and mates but squillions in the bank with lifetime security , a penthouse overlooking a fabulous Perth beach versus the regular commute along Punt Rd to Gosch's seems a no-brainer .

I know you jest but the commute and location of Fremantles new training location in Cockburn should be enough to put him off.

For all we know he could be home to discuss with his parents that he wants to stay with the Demons.

Who knows, there could already be a substantial offer on the table to stay on for another four or five years,and he is ready to commit.

They pronounce it Coburn. I keep trying to tell everyone you can't have a silent "ck", it's cockburn but they won't have a  burning bar of it.

"No not a chance. No way," Hogan told Channel 10 on Wednesday.  (When asked if he had met with Freo while in Perth this week)

Now by itself it doesnt mean much as his management would be doing the negotiating atm, so he would have no reason to meet them, but just the way he is quoted as saying it gives me hope...

 

And if he does go, welcome Lachie Neal and a first round pick at least. I desperately want him to stay as i am certain he will become something very special, but if he goes we can still be confident that MFC are heading into the 8 regularly over the next several years, and we will still have our shot.

 

Who's to say we wont snag a big name of our own anyway? Wins = more appeal, and we should win plenty.

*shrug

 

P.S. STAY JESSE WE LOVE YOU YA BIG LUNK. (And you will miss playing with Weideman)

    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
