The Incredible Hulk - Jesse Hogan

Tomorrow's obituary column will include the death of the group formerly known as "The keeping a lid on Jesse Hogan hype" movement.

Paul Roos, their spiritual leader, attempted to keep the movement alive last night by declaring Hogan was just one of the new, tough kids at the Dees and it wasn't as if he had kicked ten (goals). He was last seen in a giggling fit after leaving the media conference

He must have carried some first game nerves, missed a few gettable shots in the first few rounds and the last two games have had wet halves. Looking forward to seeing what he might do in the coming weeks. We've been waiting a long time for this.

Jackovich kicked 71.57 in 14 games in his first season. He also kicked 50+ in the reserves.

How? Just, how?

How is that possible? It's like some ancient Greek legend far before my time that cannot possibly have happened despite my having heard it so often.

Darren Cuthberson kicked 19 goals in his first three games.

Sheedy at the time said it was the greatest debut he had ever witnessed.

He may not be in the top 50 players in the comp yet, but he is the most valuable player in the AFL. There is not a single player in the league you would trade for him straight up.

I might be tempted by Fyfe but only if we could secretly clone Hogan first.

He was also 22 when he started playing for us.

Meanwhile, the Hulk looks like holding the lead in the contested mark stakes, one ahead of Hooker from the Bombers. They're starting to put a gap on the rest of the field. I think Hogan had significantly harder conditions to play under to get his as well.

Ladies and gentleman I give you The kid versus the All Australian

Go Jessie!

Not to in any way downplay Hogan's game but I never bought into the Rance being "best KPD in the league!!!11!!" hype. He's a solid defender, but seeing Hogan outmark him on several occasions didn't shock me.

McPharlin will be a better test for Hoges.

And yes, give him what he wants. If he wants a Boyd-like contract, do it.

I watched Jakovitch's first game - against Adelaide in Adelaide on the tellie.The first thing he did was fix up Hughes who had tried to fix him up in the goal square. The cameras cut out just as he got to Hughes. I remember thinking, I like the boy, he taketh no [censored].

For me now (after having been in the keep a lid on it crowd) having Hogan in the team is like knowing you own Black Caviar after her first four races. There is nothing you would trade not even Fyfe.

I agree that he is the most valuable asset in the comp. If every team just reset their lists and there was some sort of ultradraft, he would go at #1. It's hard to believe he's ours. I hate jumping the gun with grandiose statements but how can you argue with what we have seen on the field? Imagine him in about 8 years time when he is in his prime FMD

Reckon he'll still get overlooked for the rising star nomination this week. They'll give it to Cripps of Carlton. 33 touches and a goal!

...against St Kilda.

But yeah you're probably right. If Hogan does miss out he'll be getting one soon. It would be nice for it to be this game though, given it was a breakout game of sorts.

You weren't around to witness the great one? I was there, I saw it with my own eyes and I assure you, he was every bit as great as the legends say.

I remember a quote from an opposition coach after he had decimated their side, I think it was Schimmelbusch after Jakovich kicked 11.8; he said "he's in the middle of a purple patch right now, and it's pretty purple".

We've had these freaks come along over the past 20 years but their flame has burnt out far too quick - Jakovich from 91-94, Schwarz 92-94 and Farmer 98-2000. Hogan looks to be the next level and let's hope he can rip up the G and put the fear of God into opposition defence and supporters for the next 15 years in the red and blue and help deliver that long elusive cup back to the home of footy and the club that created it all.

Nup. Still don't believe it.

Well prior to the game he had not been beaten in a one on one this year nor had a goal kicked on him. He is in the reigning AA team.

Its a fair scalp for a three gamer.

Jacko still holds the record for the fastest time to 100 goals. No body in history was faster .

Just loved watching him!

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
