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.

Can't the melbourne footy club do this? Can we trade Jesse to the highest bidder against his wishes? It's probably going to make other players hate our club though if we did!

No. Player has to agree to join prospective club, can't be moved against their will.

I disagree, Jesse has a contract so he has the right to take his time making this decision, we can't and won't force him to do anything 

 

maybe technically correct, but that would turn next year into a huge circus and a major distraction, neither of which would be desirable

Rumoured back issues

Rumoured family illness

Second year blues / kicking troubles

Massive salary cap burden

Contract where he is given additional leave grace to visit home, as well as improve his back and work with a kicking specialist while over there. On considerably reduced dollars in the short term, but with a commitment to the club longer term.

 

So, who's the best physio and the best goalkicking specialist in Perth? And can we later convince them to move across to Melbourne?

Just so happens I'm a physio and a goal kicking expert goffy. I'm also what you may call a 'life coach' but I'll throw that in for free.

Pick three this year. No pick in round one next year at this stage. 

That's not true.  They have their 2017 1st but they can't trade both 2016 and 2017 1sts because they traded 2015 1st and must use 2 in 4 years.

Someone may correct me on this, but I believe Tom Petroro is Jason Dover's boss, so I think he would know something of what was going on.

right....well i guess it has quite a bit of relevance then ;)

All well and good Rocky and I do respect your post but why then didn't he extend his contract earlier in the season before putting contract negotiations on hold?

Because of his Dad's health i would have assumed. If he is really crook now it is very unlikely hit has just come on in the last couple of months, in fact we know that's not the case becasuse we had at least two posters intimate his Dad was unwell early in the season.

Its not hard to imagine a scenario where he is loving Melbourne, his Dad is stable and he makes noises about extending his contract. And then unfortunately his dad's health deteriorates and everything changes and he feels he has no choice but to put things on hold. After all he has a contract for 2017.

I really don't understand the debate given what we know about his situation. The scenario outlined by GNF and Nasher above is by far the most likely and logical one to play out, particularly given last Friday Goodwin said as much (ie we are in no hurry).

Confirmed: Hogan has informed our club he intends to re-sign. Contract negotiations have begun and will probably be completed this year but could take up to 6 months. 

Hogan put contract negotiations on hold in February. GNF's post was only last month.

So his fathers health got better between February and August then declined again after GNF's post?

Granted, but the club also has a right to protect its investment/s and do what's within its own best interests: if Hogan wants to get to WC but can't this year, then he signs an extension otherwise he'll be wearing a Dockers guernsey in 2017. That is not unreasonable.

People keep repeating over and over that he's contracted for 2017, but all the fact does is highlight the severity if finalising his future.

Contract extensions are nothing new but with free agency these days they play an important part in list management.

What you will see now is teams trading contracted players with one year left to teams that will either do a sign-and-trade deal for the long term, or take on that salary for a year to fulfil their obligations and then free up space in a year with a strong free agency class. It's how it's done in the NBA and it's how it will be done here.

Anyone that wants the club to risk an unsure Hogan and keep him playing for Melbourne in 2017 without agreeing to an extension are shockingly misguided. In 2006 that might have been a reasonable train of thought, but it infuriates me when people say, 'HE'S CONTRACTED AND HE WILL PLAY IN 2017'. It's not that simple in 2016. We stand to lose so much if he leaves after 2017. It is completely unreasonable to argue that he is not "ready" to make a decision. I completely understand there are deeply personal issues here but I'm sorry, we all bang on about no player being bigger than the club and for us to just stop and be casual about it...we stand to lose a lot here.

He either signs an extension or the club trades him.

He either makes a decision or the club trades him.

I'm pretty confident this will be sorted by Christmas.

Unless Hogan and the club signed a contract which stated something like:

"If an extension has not been brokered before the commencement of the trade period prior to the final contract year, the Club reserves the right execute a trade with the best offer and/or suitor available."

Because frankly, if it doesn't, everything in your post means zip.

I think you are on the money Steve.

No manager with half a brain would allow that in a contract let alone the players union.

It would give the player no bargaining power.

I'm not using it to back up what I'm saying, if anything it demonstrates even more the post was completely fabricated or he's been fed the wrong information.

Jesse does not have to make a decision on his future intentions this year. The MFC would preferably want some direction so it can plan for the future either with or without him. 

Bottom line is Jesse has a contract for next year. 

If he asked for a trade this year one of or both Freo and WCE would have to throw everything but the kitchen sink at us in order for a trade to be facilitated.  It would have to be some sort of mega deal that would be too hard for us to refuse otherwise he plays for us next year.

And the 2nd round too, Freo have 1 pick inside the top 50

 

Gee wiz. They are going to have to let a few players go in order to trade back into the draft. 

There list is not looking too flash with Pavlich gone, Munday, Sandilands coming to the end along with a few others. Ballentine, Barlow and Mayne on the way out.  They'll get bugger all for these blokes.

    OOZEE by The Oracle

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    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.
