Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the issue of illicit drugs in footy, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.


The Jesse Hogan Panic Room - all contract talk here

It would be great if he made a statement like Viney and sign early but he still has some way to go until the end of next year.

If he leaves then I'd say that his ability to think is worse than his goal kicking run up.

I find Lapsang Souchong tea leaves in a translucent  eggshell porcelain tea cup best for tea leaf reading.  The pungent smoky aroma  goes hand in hand with  all the smoke and mirrors of trade talk.

No interest until it's confirmed his signed or isn't going to.

You could go mad worrying about this otherwise. Scully, Rivers, Frawley, Howe have all taught me not to worry. So far we've ended up better off in the end.

Hogan might be irreplaceable but I have confidence PJ and Mahoney won't stuff the Club by paying overs and if he walks it will be for an offer too good to refuse and too overs to match. I shudder to think we apparently offered Scully $700,000 a year to stay all those years ago. He left, we saved the money and got Hogan. I was happy in the end, not at the beginning.

If he stays which I expect, fantastic! If he goes I'll look forward to the trade. 2 guns for one.

Reckon we'll be fine here, but it doesn't seem to be about our improvement anymore. We've clearly shown improvement, so it's simply down to Jesse now.

Just listening to the Herald Sun trade podcast with Jay Clark, Sam Landsberger and Gilbert Gardiner. Clark, who has written a number of Hogan articles this week, and who I actually think is one of the more reliable HS journos says he thinks from his information now that he is "98% sure" that Hogan signs a new deal with Melbourne.

Obviously not saying it's gospel, just that it's a different narrative than when every single media outlet reported that Scully was a goner from months out. Worth a listen from the 5.25 mark...

Is erryone forgetting he's contracted till end of next year??

Nobodys forgetting that Jacko, but you'd think something will happen this year.

Either he signs a new deal in the off-season or tells the club he wants to go home. If he wants to go home it's in our best interests to trade him at the end of this season, when freo will be able to start their offer with a top 5 pick than next when they'll probably have moved up the ladder.

Commence the austromancy! And the spatilomancy!

If this gets any worse, it'll become geloscopy.

Let's do it in diagrams -

 

Hogan's expectations -------------> contract! <-------------- Club's expectations

 

If you have information to provide about either of these factors, talk on!

Otherwise. Shh.

While I like the optimism from Clark I don't get how you can put a percentage on knowing a player is staying. You either know he's staying or leaving or you don't know.

the quality and quantity of his source(s) could be a factor. not saying they are, but he might think(generous) so

With no off field player issues, no crap club management to complain about, no crap recruiting to lament, no tanking dramas or [censored] tribunal decisions,  Demonland is in the midst of self imposed hysteria over a player who has a season and a half to play before he can walk out.

I understand why everyone is worried/ interested, but still makes me chuckle a little.

It would be a massive setback should he leave, but for once the team looks like we don’t rely on just a handful of players. Plus,  If he was to leave or request a trade we’d be holding a handful of aces to get pretty much whatever we wanted from an opposition club!

I like the name of this thread. It will surely be a panic by us if he doesn't re-sign by year's end.

Should Hogan be made to take some responsibility for inducing panic?

Course you can. From all his sources the information he's got is that Jesse will stay, but he's covering himself with the 2% being if something unforeseen happens - Dees lose every game for the rest of the season, Jesse finds himself a girl from Perth etc.

The only people making any suggestions that he's going back to Perth are.... from Perth.  Of course they'll take that narrative, it sells.

Still no doubt in my mind he'll stay.

Agree with that first paragraph Wise.

Wish I could share the unequivocalness  of your belief in your second, but do think and hope he's likely to.

I understand that.  Everyone approaches it differently and there is nothing wrong with that.  

What does annoy me is when supporters over analyse everything and turn anything reported on in to a negative.  In the age of social media, news reports everywhere etc. it's easy to read too much into things.  I trust the club, and Jesse, to get things done and bring sustained success for years to come.

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.
