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.

(if his management is to be believed)

So what happens if Freo and WCE also have sh#t years next year? If this quote is true, he's basically giving the club an ultimatum, "perform or else I leave. Oh and btw, I'll probably leave anyway."

I'm really not comfortable having a player on our list that's not sure if he wants to stay or not, his manager said he is torn between staying or going home.

To make a serious tilt at finals next year , you'd want list of fully committed players who believe in the goal of winning a premiership with the Melbourne football club.

No what it is saying, is what every other player says to their manager, except Hogan has to publicly state it, I have another year on my contract to run, I'll give it everything I have got for this year, coz if I don't my value and bargaining power will drop, but I will then decide what the next step in my career is to be

Any good player does that Daisy, especially ones who know they are coveted by other teams, the ultimate prize for a player is a premiership, if Hogan doesn't think we are near one, he may well move, Watts had the opportunity this year and stayed, so did others

After every win it'll be "why hasn't Hogan signed yet?" and after ever loss it'll be "he's gone". 

Bring on the circus, I can't wait.

To be fair a lot of posters (not just from this forum) have implored the club to force his (Hogan's) hand. This is mainly due to Freo having an early pick. Taking that into consideration I think it is reasonable to expect the club to ask the hard question. 

Well yes i agree in fact that is my point to an extent. Lots of people make simplistic calls when it comes to things such as trading scearios. 

My point is that the fd are professionals who are paid to make the best decision for the club. I rate our current fd as the best we have had for 20 years. I very much doubt they will force jessies hand.

Assuming i am correct this.means that the fd believes the best thing for the mfc is for them not to force a decision or look to trade him this trade period. That's good enough for me.

I'm probably alone on this one but i don't see how the CBA really affects players decisions that are/have the potential to be on contracts of 1 million or higher.  

How much is enough?

Is keeping the team together a priority?

Hawks have/had players taking pay cuts over the past couple of years, Jesse has/had a contract in front of him for potentially around the million per season but is supposedly holding off to see how the CBA plays out....so he can ask for more? At the same time he continues to miss easy shots on goal arguably bringing his price down. 

Never fear Freo will most likely blow the budget to finally land their big fish.

 

Honestly I feel it's an excuse to put it off. I don't genuinely think that's the reason he's putting it off, I think it's just a convenient thing to utilise. 

When you're talking the money that he's going to be receiving I doubt the CBA is going to play much of a part in his decision unless the CBA will result in a big salary cap increase.

If Hogans mindset truly is "he's waiting to see how we go next year" that is a concern, considering he's part of it. 

35 metres out, slight angle, sprays it right.

Can't agree more BA, he has to understand he is also part of the team and can influence the result on game day. 

It's a really poor excuse for not making a decision this trade period.

So if he has a terrible year in front of goal and his value drops like a stone, he is 'tanking', so he feels more comfortable when he finally decides to leave

We should all combine to write a novel, it would be a best seller

I went to film school, I'm actually writing a six part comedy based on the construction industry. 

If anyone is interested I made a short 8 minute action movie.

No they don't. There are heaps of players at GWS who extended prior to this year. The same applies to dozens of players across all clubs. They see themselves as being part of the resurgence unconditionally. The same can't be said off Hogan if these comments are true.

I assume it is a black comedy starring the CFMEU and Gatto

You only a need a synopsis based on the last few pages of this topic and you would have a classic psycho-drama on your hands

Although I think somebody has already had a crack at it

What I said is that they all consider it, not all jump ship, and I should qualify it maybe, money is also a consideration

Having waded through all the hoo ha, I would factor in the following - if his father is gravely ill, there would be some compulsion to stay around the family as opposed to signing up for a long term deal and swanning off to the other side of the country. I know if it were me, I'd be loathe to lock into a long term deal until I was sure about the home front. I realise the club will be very accommodating and I believe it when they say he's happy at Melbourne. For me, that would be the reality of it. In other words, I think it's about the family and not about playing for Melb or Freo or raking in the big bucks, at this time.

    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.
