Im clearly a troll and have been working up to this post in my 11 years of membership.

Not just the validity, more the chinese-whispers nature of it. I would imagine that every player on every list in the AFL (of any quality) gets discussed in trades, every year. Even when on long term contracts, if they're good enough, their management and the clubs' management would be remiss NOT to discuss them, even years before they might become available for a trade.

In all likelihood, in one of these phone calls (of which there will likely be hundreds over Jesse's career) the club said that the price on Jesse's head is something ridiculous like 2 first rounders and an All Australian player. After that, it gets around that the demons are "shopping" him, despite the fact they tried to place a price on his head no club would agree to. Then after that, the rumours start on internet chatrooms, and the details get lost.

Noone should target Beetle for raising the point, but the onus is on us to treat it as what it is. A rumour sometimes is just a rumour.

Does anyone really think that he could possibly enjoy playing under Ross Lyon with his 6-8 goal a game forward line? (Could anyone for that matter - doesn’t look like anyone does at the moment)

Seriously, what a special talent who appears to be enjoying every moment (well almost, other than the after siren play on brain fade)

Well done Jesse - we love you and look forward to many years kicking multiple goals and assisting Demon teammates kick many more. 

Only IF he was desperate to get back to WA. 

He's looking quite happy at present and hopefully will continue to do so. The extra tall's seem to work well ttogether, with the athleticism they all posses.

I remember when David King rated Stringer higher than Jesse.

On The Couch had a running poll all year where they’d ask each guest if they preferred Stringer or Hogan. 

Ha... hahaha.

funnily enough, you could argue hogan has become the sort of player stringer was - capable of getting up and down the ground, playing thru the midfield, impacting the scoreboard, bringing his teammates into the play, taking great contested grabs, and generally dominating as a modern day forward

Nearest the pin, how many goals will Jesse end up kicking in 2018? Currently on 26 goals in 10 games.

I'm going with 71....  reckon he will kick a a few big bags in the back half of the season.  Thats just for the home and away season , if we play finals (which its looking like we will)  he could give 80 a crack.

71 goals and if he continues to average 20 disposals that’s one hell of a season.

Nice to hear...

"I've lived here (Melbourne) for about six years now and I'd almost call it home," Hogan told AFL.com.au.

"I still love going back to Perth obviously. But with each year I stay here, it's probably that little bit further away from going back to Perth."

There were plenty of wise heads on this forum in the early years who said this was how it would pan out, in that if we could convince him to stay in the early years he’d eventually grow out of the idea of returning to Perth. A strong bond with his teammates, a Victorian girlfriend, a club that has actively supported him during his more homesick periods and a bit of team success would (and has) created a sense of home in Melbourne. In my opinion the risk of him going has now completely evaporated.

It may resurface when he’s a 30 year old, 200 game player looking to transition his life and spend his last contract at “home”, but by then with 3 flags and 2 Brownlows to his name, I’ll happy wave him goodbye with thanks, knowing he was a loyal Demon when it mattered.

Forwards don't win brownlows, mids do.

Wait a minute... what about forwards who cover more ground than most mids, averages 20 plus possessions, takes bundles of marks all over the ground and kicks 2-3 goals a game?

Exactly. Huge chance to poll very well this year if current form continues.

The bloody niggling media - anything for a story that increases circulation and advertising revenue. Perth may well be a wonderful place for Jesse to holiday, chill out, muck about. Fantastic for him. Melbourne is a great place for him to work, train, develop, get rich and plan for the non-football days that will come in just over a decade. We, the people of the east, love him for what he has done and what he is doing, and will do in the future, in Melbourne, with Melbourne and one day, as the captain of Melbourne. Hang cool, Jesse, you are doing fine. I like the way you do not even respond to these journalistic suppositions.

After watching the game live I thought Gus was clear BOG but having watched the replay, Hogans game was enormous. The ground he covers is remarkable, almost Riewoldt like already and he must be an absolute nightmare to match up against for the opposition.

He`s in rare form and will only improve.

Can anyone suggest why Jesse might struggle to kick further than 40 odd metres? He seems to have the right build for it??

Not sure but some days it is evident. I think it may be related to a consistent lack of follow-through, but his field kicking is doing just fine at the moment so it is all a conundrum, of sorts. His scoring rate is great, too.

How will 80 rank among our major goalkickers since the golden age of FFs?

Neita kicked 82-ish when he won the Coleman...

Holy smokes just looked... Going backwards from 2017...

42, 41, 44, 20, 28, 29, 40, 55, 29, 26, 42, 68, 73, 69, 65 and in 2002 Neitz won it with 82. Best before that was Bennett with 87 in 1990... then before that no-one has kicked more than 80 other than Fanning in 1947 (97), and 1944 (87)... and Norm 3 times in the 40s.

Blimey.

    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

    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

    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.

    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

    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
