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.


The Jesse Hogan Panic Room - all contract talk here

Seems many think only one condition is in effect here . There's a number but not always intended. Circumstances, unfortunately have coincided making matters more murky and convoluted.

Can'o'worms, not by design but by event.

Not to be inconsiderate, but life goes on, the game goes on and Jesse will, like it or not be asked a question. Life sucks sometimes. .....and it goes on, the game goes on.......

Think Collingwood 4 years ago.

Think Travis Cloke 4 years ago.

Cloke was or about to turn 25 when he received his payday. Collingwood tried to lure Johnathon Brown down but failed, then When Clokes contract was up for renewal his dad played hardball a secured a five year deal worth (speculative from media) around 800k a year, today's equivalent of 1-1.2 million. Cloke had the bodywork and was arguably the greatest contested mark getting around, but there was a question mark on his kicking for goal. This year was his fourth year of that contract, dropped 3 times? Missed a goal from 5 metres out directly in front playing in the VFL, now the club which payed overs for him can't get him out the door quick enough. Yes they're different players but there are similarities, start missing easy shots, confidence drops then can start to affect other areas of your game. When a club is preparing to offer a player a 5-6 year deal potentially worth upwards of a million dollars a season you'd like to think that player is the complete package. Having said that Buddy struggles to take a contested mark and Danger (yes I'm aware he's not on a million) is no stranger to the occasional shank. 

 

 

 

Was Hogan ever a natural goalkicker/kicker of the ball? I recall him being far more accurate than this year, but it wouldn't surprise me if he was another one of those athletic kids that outgrew everyone and was recruited so high because he of his great marking and CHF attributes, and not because he could kick perfectly? 

I don't think it would be so big a loss if the kid spends the next 5 years goofily trying to kick straight at another club? If he could kick like Jack Watts he'd be worth throwing a massive deal in front of.

Forget about Jesse Hogan. He is a forward who cannot be relied upon to kick the winning goal in a Grand Final, let alone any game for that matter.

I thought his second year was very disappointing, and if he does not know what he wants to do by now, then trade him.

Let's get on the front foot for a change and say, "If you cannot commit to us long-term now, then we will trade you".

Simon Goodwin has said publicly that his management have said they will work out a deal at the end of the season, and the end of the season is now.

So he has got a couple of weeks at best to re-sign for at least 3 years, otherwise he is pro-actively putting himself up for trade.

Trade him for Nat Fyfe (West Coast have nothing that is worth Jesse Hogan).

This is our big chance to sign up an A-Grade midfielder who is still in his prime (subject to broken leg repair).

The best legacy that Jesse Hogan can leave our Club with is Nat Fyfe.

Amazing stuff, and an enormous insult to Jesse Hogan, who might I add is currently a Melbourne player.

Ultimately I'm saying, I don't believe he will sign this off season. Setting us up for a year-long circus that will make the Scully situation look small time.

Our bargaining position next year will be worse than this year, so I'm saying let's go for it this year.

I have strong doubts that showing loyalty makes any difference to not showing it. The player managers are hard-@rses who wouldn't know the meaning of the word.

 

We can at this stage only deal with what we know.

1 Jesse hasn't asked to be traded - Bartlett and Goodwin

2 the Mfc won't trade him unless option 1 is enforced - his manager

I want him to sign now, but we're going to have to be mature here and ride this out.

Whats the longest thread on demo land.... Jesse may challenge it, as I can't see any resolution until 2017

Well it would have a fair way to go to challenge the No T$ thread, 717 more pages and 18000 more posts in fact.

I reckon this is a gross,cold blooded post. My opinion. I am also at a point where i think the Mods should have a serious talk about containment of speculative personal content.I think we are all feeding the chooks and i think most options and opinions are exhausted.

Simon Goodwin at his press conference last week 13 mins in.

http://www.melbournefc.com.au/video/2016-09-14/media-conference-goodwin-announcement

"Jesse's management and the Club said they would look at it at the end of the year. We're now at the end of the year."

It is clear the new Senior Coach does not want this to drag on to next year, nor does a single Melbourne supporter I would suggest. So Jesse has to sign up very soon, or he risks Melbourne being proactive, accepting that he does not want to play with Melbourne long-term, and trading him, hopefully for Nat Fyfe.

People on this forum continually berate this suggestion. We have a very deep, talented draft this year, and two teams willing to deal very valuable picks and players. 

It is the end of the year. He either signs an extension or we trade him. 

There is absolutely no reason for him not to sign an extension or agree to eventually sign an extension if his intentions are to stay.

If you think coaches aren't disingenuous when answering questions from the media then you've got no idea. What Goodwin says in public means nothing. It's what's being said in private that matters.

It's not like he's beating around the bush. He's being openly direct and firm. "It's now the end of the year."

In other words, "You said one thing, are you a man of your word?"

I think it was a firm yet subtle point directed at Hogan and his management.

I too would love for Hogan to sign an extension, but when you step back and think for a moment... Why should he. He negotiated an extension to his contract, he's signed until the end of 2017, it's unfair that we are putting so much heat on this player and none of the others on our list whose contract expires next year.

It's honestly hilarious that Fyfe's name is being thrown up as compensation.

He will never leave Freo.

Ever.

Ironically they're in a similar situation to us, he is refusing to commit to them in any real way publicly and fueling the fire himself, he's a free agent next year and they risk less compo if he leaves so the temptation to trade him this year would become real if they thought he was more likely going than staying lol

What on earth leads you to that conclusion?

 Given the public comments made by fyfe and lyon  - both of whom emphasise his desire for finala success - and the fact he becomes a rfa i would say he is more likely to leave tban stay at the end of 2017.

But have we offered contracts to any of the other players out of contract at the end of 2017? Certainly none which equate to 10% of the salary cap.

Again, it appears unlikely he will sign an exstension and we wont trade him this year (not even for a 'super deal' according his management company). 

So if this is the case i assume you think the fd making a mistake at best, incompetent at worst

Odds are that he wouldn't leave them, seeing as he is a WA boy and has flourished under Lyon. But he'd have to be the asking price for Hogan IMO. If it comes to that, we play hard ball and go for Fyfe.

Yep I agree with this line of thinking. Again I reckon we will be screwed over! Again and again! The agony never ends!!

    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.

    TRAINING: Sunday 7th April 2024

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down in the rain to Gosch's Paddock for the Demon Family Series April School Holiday Open Training session. Not such a good morning, weather wise. As I arrived, it starting raining, settled into watching some Victory players have a kick around. The MFC squad come out as the rain abated, they had wide smiles as the walked down the roped corridor. Plenty of joy from the supporters towards them, kids everywhere, maybe about 500 to a 1000 of us.
