All-Australian Jeremy McGovern? You've got some weird opinions on players Adam.

Why doesnt the media just say his dad is ill and this is what Hogan has to weigh up about going home or not. Yes I know its a private family matter but when people like Damo on radio today say there is a private family matter or something along those lines people are going to speculate.

By the way how do people know on this forum his dad is ill? 

Anyway who knows whats going to happen. If there is this much speculation now about him imagine what it will be like during next season if we still have him.

The good aspect to this is that, if Hogan does decide to go back to WA, both WA sides are red hot into him.

As anyone knows with an auction, all you need is two potential purchasers that really want to win the auction and it's game on.

That said, I desperately hope he re-signs with the MFC. We need him.

You cannot be serious? The worst case scenario? That would be him leaving. 

If he chooses to exercise his right to honour the last year of his contract, as is his right, do you honestly believe the club will trade him this year to enure they get a primo deal? Of course they won't. Because it would be stupid and the current fd is not stupid.

The worst case scenario is him staying on un-contracted, and then leaving at the end of next year. We all know we've been burnt by players doing this before and just look at the media circus around it this year - that is going to get much, much worse if he sticks around un-contracted, and it's not something Goodwin would want to be dealing with in his first year as coach.

Do you remember what the general public reaction was when Dayne Beams went home because his dad had cancer? A lot of uninformed people giving certified references on the character of someone they've never met.

Jake Niall on the couch said he thought he would stay. I gathered they know about his father but respectfully didn't go into it. 

I think those stirring the trade pot ( weagles or whoever) in this case need to back off. He has enough pressure with his fathers situation.

Would I rather a top midfielder or a top forward for Jesse Hogan or a gun backman? The former.

Would be a gun CHF 'AF', only went back because they had no one else at the time.

I remember his early games forward, strong hands (still) & long 50 metre + goals...

Watching footy classified. Both Caro and Barrett both of the opinion Jesse is all but gone. Can't stand either of them and they couldn't back it up with any substance. 

Lloyd was not sure  

Also spoke about the WA clubs being interested in Hill, McCarthy and Lobb. Not sure how they will be able to put trades together for all these blokes.

Classified pretty adamant he's off.

 

On the Couch sure he's staying.

 

Hutchy says take Lobb over Hogan. Ha! Ahaha ha. Ha.

 

"Lobb could be the best player in the competition".

Whenever a Freo/WCE user mentions a player to trade, I google them to see where they're from. Whenever I see "WA" I instantly think "No" - McGovern is from WA. I know there are many exceptions, but i'm just tired of losing of players.

They're headline chasers on Channel 9. Always have been. They will always take the more drastic stance as it keeps fuelling the fire and ensuring they have a discussion point for next week. If the line is he's staying, there's nothing to talk about.

Missed the FYFE segment on Classlessness, anyone know what he said? Apparently he's still giving ambiguous answers to questions about his future from the lead in. If so, then we should headhunt him.

He's a free agent end of next season and has previously stated said he will explore his options in free agency before making a decision.

I didn't see the segment but I'm guessing he just reiterated something similar to this.

Did you actually read the article?  His point is rather more complex than telling rape victims to grow up as the headline implies.  It's also dead right.

Surely they could show more respect to his family matter than going on about it on every single TV show during a very difficult time for Jesse, 

If it were me i'd refuse to go to the WCE simply because they've shown so little respect in stirring this up at a really bad time for him.

After reading these 104 pages of speculation I'm no clearer if he is staying or going. To be honest i dont really care. Players come and go. Dont get me wrong, we need alot of compensation if indeed he does jump ship for whatever reason. I have faith in our list management dept.

When we get into big finals it's very useful to have match-winners who can turn the game by their own actions.  We've seen it already with Cameron and Bontempelli, and of course there's Franklin and Dangerfield.

They are rare beasts but Hogan can be one of them.  When I look at our list I see a lot of talent coming through but few game breakers.  In the right circumstance big Max could do it, maybe Petracca can grow into this, Jayden Hunt is another slim possibility.  That's why it's very desirable to retain Jesse.

He has yet to show me even a glimpse that he can be a game breaker has a lot of work to do and it starts by losing the attitude but then a lot of demons supporters just wish it to be.

    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
