It was more of a statement.

Besides the hypothesising about whether the pull of home will sway him to leave, what concerns me more at the moment is his form.  Maybe its my imagination and I know he cops a great deal of close checking from the opposition, but to me, he just does not seem to be switched on.  I hope it is only my imagination 

 

FFS, I'm terribly sorry for presenting a perspective - however misguided it may have been.

No need to apologise to me smithy, I completely agree with you, we should drop Hogan and give him a spell in the two's.

OK, OK, I am terribly sorry for asking the question.  Please, please forgive me.  

I can't forgive you. It's not in my nature ( I haven't forgiven Scully. For god's sake I can't forgive Greg Wells for leaving to go to Carlton)

I hesitate to ever rely on anything John Ralph says as he is often no more than a parrot.

But he just said on SEN that the comments coming out of Melbourne is that they 'are certain' he will stay!. 

Truly hope Ralph is parroting correctly!

Didn't he say last week Hogan was leaving? 

He might have, but because his news is positive on Hogan, I'm happy to say that Ralph is always spot on with his sources.

Last week?  He was always wrong and hadn't got any rumour right in 5 years.

Often reading bigfooty, it is almost always assumed that Hogan is going to Freo. Perhaps, it has affected my thinking as well. I hope Ralph is right!!!

Honestly can't understand why he'd want to go to Freo. Our midfield is mid range but improving, but Freo's is worse. They'd have to give us something huge to make it work, and I genuinely don't think they've got it.

I don't mind if Jesse waits. He can watch Cam McCathy struggle next year for a few weeks. That'll probably save us 100K off the contract.

Strangely enough, The longer this goes on, the more confident I am that he will stay. Freo have struggled badly this year and I think that will be a major factor for Jesse. He seems to enjoy the lifestyle in Melbourne and the club is more than happy for him to go and see his family. The only other thing would have been the lifestyle but he has his club mates to go surfing with also so I dont think that will be a deciding factor.

In the unlikely event Jesse does leave, Fyfe and Freos first round pick might be enough to compensate us

Interesting words from Lyon. The fact that they're also pin pointing the draft as the way to go for the rebuild, hopefully tells Jesse that they're a few years away from being serious competitors again.

That's also strange territory for Lyon - he's used to bringing in recycled and mature players and then bailing before the list hits the wall.

Free may have struggled badly this year and this is why it is very important we defeat them and defeat them well at the week-end. This will send a strong message and if his teammates desperately want him to stay, as I am sure they do, the team has to excel against Freo. Otherwise, what sort of message does this send to both Jesse and our supporters as to any gap we might have now and in the future on Freo. Go Dees!

I'm also worried Hawthorn and Geelong. 

Personally, I'm more worried about the baggage retrieval system they've got at Heathrow.

Sorry, wrong song.

This Fyfe stuff... I got from a sauce a few days ago that Fyfe wants out, doesn't like Freo's direction and Lyon's game plan (seems a weird assertion given he won a brownlow under him) and wants to go somewhere he can win flags in his all important 25-30 years of his career. Suddenly Hogan to them for the best player in the game makes a lot of sense. Hogan from 21-35(ish) I would think is the richest commodity in footy vs Fyfe for 5 years, IMO, I'd rather Jesse. But as we know, what we want doesn't always materialise.

Fyfe wouldn't want to play for Melbourne in a Hogan-less forward-line.  He'd know how important it would be to have Hogan in the lineup for Melbourne to become flag-worthy..

Good point.

We're nothing like as dangerous a side going forward, without Hogan.

Is Fyfe a free agent? If so... wowee... if not... Who else could get that trade to happen? Watts (also a free agent)?

Or conversations, or that many people. Anyone who's actually left Melbourne before realises Melbourne is just a great city, in too many ways to count. Even within Australia it's miles ahead.

    DELTA DEMONS by KC from Casey

    There was an ill wind blowing for the home side at Casey Fields on  Saturday but you wouldn’t have noticed if you turned up seven or eight minutes into the second quarter with the scoreboard showing the Casey Demons holding a lead of 7.5.47 to Footscray’s solitary point. Up to that stage, the depleted Dees combination had taken full advantage of the windy conditions and headed by veterans Nathan Jones, Jimmy Munro and Mitch White had came out of the blocks and plundered the Bulldogs’ defence.

    ON THE FLY by George On The Outer

    After spending most of the previous day in the air, flying between Queensland and Victoria, it was hard to imagine the Demons would be at their best.   But this team was on the fly on the field as well and produced a clinical display which saw them record a 98 point win to put aside any questions about the side being out of form.   Certainly, the Suns who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season were their opponents, but with the Demons looking for a confidence boo

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec
