The Jesse Hogan Panic Room - all contract talk here


Grapeviney

Recommended Posts

Back on topic. Managers are there to make their players decisions for them aren't they and that includes thinking and future decision making. Wouldn't you just love to have your favorite manager who made you, the player, out to be as simple as that.

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.   

If that's the case and it could be, his manager shouldn't be coming out and saying Jesse wants to wait and see how the club goes next year.

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

Quoting issues....again.

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

 

It's based on the railways (rail construction). I spent six years in the industry. But most of the characters and scenarios would be relatable to most.

Ok.  A clearer picture is emerging and for me it's relatively straight forward.

Hogan does "float" according to his manager when it comes to where he wants to play his footy.  My take is that he loves his mates, is happy with the club's progress and gets on very well with Goodwin, but unsurprisingly for a 21 year old who hasn't lived at home since he was 17, he gets occasional pangs of homesickness that prevents him from making a concrete decision.   And he doesn't need to, as he's contracted for 2017.

So while we all want a decision and so does the club Hogan can buy more time to be sure of his decision. 

I'm going to take things on face value.  I'm now comfortable in the belief that he'll be playing at Melbourne in 2017 and imo that augurs well for the future.  The more he bonds with his teammates (and the club) the better.  I appreciate others will think he'll leave at the end of 2017, and he may, but I still believe we'll be best placed to retain him. 

While it's also crossed my mind that it may be better to do a deal this year, if he's genuinely conflicted, which I have no reason to doubt, then we should back the club to convince him to stay.  I don't see the current events as some inevitability that he'll go.   He's got stuff to work through. 

I'm going to enjoy seeing Hogan for another year and will remain confident that he'll ultimately decide to stay.  If he is presently "torn" it may be that the extra time works in our favour.

That type of talk pizzes me off big time. A truly committed player would want to drive success. I'm not saying Hoges isn't but his manager shouldn't say such crap.

I didn't realise that. It paints a slightly different picture but I find it hard to believe they would be trotting out last year's line as though there'd been no improvement between this year and last.

In the meantime Jesse comes second to Heeney, in the AFLCA best young player award - voted on performance over two years.

Not bad, eh:P  especially given the challenges and scrutiny on him this year.

Its time we all wised up. Money drives the whole thing!

I strongly believe that regardless of his fathers illness or not It I Reckon is a "Fait accompli"!! That he is gone! Sheeit don't be delusional everyone, if he was commited he would sign now and dispel all rumour and innuendo! The fact that he hasn't means we can speculate about possible reasons why he hasn't signed! ?? I reckon he or his managers have already decided to get the Biggest pay packet of all time, preferably West and live happily ever after.!!

Can anyone on this site Seriously, Seriously think that his own self interest and management advice would not be this way inclined??

Nar If he was truly madly deeply in love with the club then why not sign now!??????????????????????????????????????????????

Ok time to get tough, Freos pick 3 for Hogan, plus a player, Offer pick 3 and Grimes to the Tiges in their dishevelled state for Reiwoldt And Wnner , Winner Winner!!

Yes Roger that sums it up for me. If the illness is true the Club is limited in what strategies it can employ, it really has no choice but to wait it out and see how it all pans out. Very difficult situation for the club to play hard ball.

This is getting worse by the day....It's a horrible memory.......I can remember asking my dad why Ron Barassi left and went to Carlton....over and over....poor dad being Richmond .(...who were flogged every week then....(like now Ha!) )..... couldn't help......I was shattered......just a kid.........my life ruined at 13....I thought.

The Norm Smith Curse....come back Norm forgive us!!!! Ahhhh...etc etc

However...I was really upset when Mitch Clark left and now I'm happy about that........Geelong can have him. 

I need a psychiatrist to follow this club.

I think there are a few psychologists that do follow this club.

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
