Hogan is a tremendous player and I really hope he signs with us, but if he's set on going home to Perth I hope he makes that known this year so we can do a deal while he's in contract and Freo are in the bottom 4.  If we got equitable compensation for him, I've seen enough from Weidemann and Hulett, and with Watts improvement this year to feel comfortable that we could still continue our rise to challenge.

Agreed. 

I'd have a lot more respect for Hogan if he comes clean at the end of the year and says his intentions are to return to WA at the end of the contract, "so why not trade me a year earlier to maximize your (MFC) return". As opposed to stuffing the club around for a further 12 months and and us holding less bargaining power.

Whichever way we paint it, losing Hogan would be a very big blow to the club. Weed and Hulett might come on next year in the seniors, but we know Hogan is a bona fide star in the making and pretty close now. I'm keeping my head in the sand and refusing to consider it because losing Hogan would definitely set us back.

No-one would dispute that.  But if he wants to go home - well that's it.  I can see how we can avoid a disaster in that case.

I know it's not exactly scientific, but all you have to do is watch Hogan's body language and interaction with his teammates at training or on gameday.
Unless we get blown out of the water by another team paying him $2mil per year, he's with us for the long haul.

 Or unless - heaven forbid - we remain winless for the second half of the season...

Did anyone see or hear Kings comments on SEN. Good signs for the Dees. (From where we've come from)

In summary said Dees arent a basket case anymore.

I'm actually starting to believe Hogan might stay.

Either way he's a genuine gun he wont be able to lewve for cheap so it won't be a complete disaster

I heard the first 6 or 7 minutes. They were pretty complimentary of the whole team and the way they are coached. They went on to talk about TMac and gave him a big rap.

Anyone else ever wonder whether Demonland members act with the same paranoia and jealously in their real relationships as they do with their football players?

Half would have restraining orders out against them. A few probably do.

Some of Meggs' Dees supporting acquaintances are fully convinced he's heading back to WA but for some strange and inexplicable reason Meggs believes he will re-commit to us.

Anyway, Mr and Mrs Meggs are off to TIO Stadium for the big game and are looking forward to seeing our Number One man?

While we might not agree with what he says it dont mean it isn't wrong or that far from the truth.

Anyway I'm not suggesting King is the be all end all but its nice to have our club talked about in a positive light and as a destination club.

That is big IMO...

As a surfer, Hogan is addicted to the big wave and the ride. He now knows the MFC is a big wave with the team and talent coming through and will have no hesitation signing on to ride it all the way...

I keep four exes chained up in my basement. Does that count?

Very positive. Am I the only one who finds it irritating that, as soon as someone talks positively about the Dees for the first time in 15 years, all the others start moaning about him "banging on"? All they ever talk about is Richmond and Collingwood and that seems fine by everyone. God I hope we become a steamrolling juggernaut and stick it right up those pretentious pricks.

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi
