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)

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini
