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.

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. 

Ummm.... Yeah.

Devils advocate.. Ever heard of it?

Before any trading of picks gcs and gws have 11 picks in the first 2 rounds (6 gcs, 5 gws). This will probably increase by draft time esp for gcs (o'meara, prestia).

Freo have picks 3, -, 39, 57 (and have to pay hawks for hill)

WC have picks  11, 29, 47, 65

Melb have picks  -, 27, 45, 63 (with 27 locked in for hibbert?)

Haw have picks 18, 36, 54, 72 (plus what they get for hill)

Pretty hard to see a lot of the talked of trades happening without a lot of other good player trades + future picks

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 am fairly certain clubs are able to trade contracted players. The purpose of the trade, in this case being his inability to sign an extension, is irrelevant.

Getting off the topic for a minute. 

GWS have been in the comp five years. They have lost Tyson, Frost, O'Rourke, Gorringe, Jaksch, Philips, Sumner, McCarthy, Treloar, Miles, Hombsch, Boyd and I'm sure many more. They will also lose a couple more this year in Marchbank and Steel  

They Could be playing in a GF in two weeks. 

Have another five picks in the first two rounds this year.  Trades will see that maybe go to 7 or 8.

No wonder why clubs such as us have found it tough to rebuild with all the young talent being snapped up before we got the chance to draft them.

Not a good look for the AFL who has always believed in equalisation

Question. If nothing eventuates during this trade period and by the end of next year, Hogan does not re-sign and has requested to go home. What if Freo have nothing to trade with us - No decent picks or quality players. Can they get Hogan for nothing?

he would have to take his chances in the nd or dfa. but, yes it is possible

I've never stated for a second that he doesn't need to do some work as well.  Of course he needs to work on aspects of his game, which includes his kicking for goal, especially under a bit of But he could easily have had 50+ goals when you factor in the 33 points, and once he works all that out then he will kick 50+ goals a year for the rest of his career.

If Hogans kicking improves as along with our midfields ability to deliver the ball to him I think 70 goals per season should be the pass mark.

If a trade with Freo or WCE cannot be brokered then Jesse has the following options. 

1) re-sign with us. 

2) take his chances in the draft in the hope to fall to Freo or WCE. 

3) nominate another club that we can negotiate a trade with. 

A trade with Freo or WCE can always be orgestrated if they are willing to give up quality to get quality.

Fox Footy article on FB.

Tom Petroro says Hogan will play for Melbourne next year "I can't see him playing anywhere else in 2017", but couldn't guarantee his future after that.

If that some sort of player agent code for "Jesse is waiting to see what direction West Coast and Fremantle take?

I think that's 14, 32, 50 and 68 now?  That improvement will help them a bit with their trades.

Jason Dover is his manager, so not sure what relevance Petroro has to any of this?

Dover is a WA agent at Stride. Petroro is the managing director at Stride. I'm tipping they've had the odd work-related conversation.

But even if Dover and Petroro worked at different companies, they would talk. Player agents spend a lot of time talking about each others players. That's their job.

This is what I fear most if he either doesn't re-sign or isnt traded this year. 

It would be typical MFC if it pans out this way.

My point was that Hogan has to agree. There is no clause in the contract that would allow the club to 'force' a trade.

Yes I did an no I don't think he is. That's me out

Whenever you see single quotation marks in a headline - Stephen Fry says rape victims should 'grow up' - you need to tread carefully. And read carefully. That's how journalists distill a comment down to a headline-sized, click-friendly bite. Fry said people who self-pity should grow up, he did not say rape victims should grow up. But that's how the journalist, or most probably the sub-editor, read between the lines to apply some sauce to the article.

Little known fact. In the media world, esp "print" media, single quote marks in the headline (as opposed to double quotes ...  ' ' vs "" ) means the person didn't really say it, and a subeditor paraphrased, sometimes very loosely, what the person actually said.

A convention made up by and for the media and passed into standard usage without anyone being any the wiser.

Player agents, eh? Those lovable scamps. That reminds me of a well known agent of a well known player.

 

November 25, 2012: Superstar Lance Franklin will stay at Hawthorn, his manager says

"We'll get it done with Hawthorn, don't even worry about that," Pickering said on SEN yesterday. "Let's be honest, every club would want Buddy. But he will stay with Hawthorn. It will all be sorted."

Franklin's manager Liam Pickering has denied he has taken offers from opposition clubs, but the reported asking price for Franklin's services would be in excess of $1 million a season.

Yes if they finish last.

    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.
