Most of the recent comments I've read on players leaving clubs Hogan isn't even mentioned.

Probably because he's contracted for another season after this one. 

If he hasn't signed by this time next season, I'd except the media and DL will be going nuts.

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?

Yes it has been an abusive, painful relationship and full of broken promises for over five decades.

I sometimes wonder if all the fuss over him leaving would've been halved if that photo of him in the Fremantle scarf had never gone public.

Every kid on our list besides Grimes, Stretch, Viney and Harmes barracked for someone else before they came here. 

Brayshaw's dad is on the board of North and his uncle is the president. Not a word has been said about him joining North.

Prestia's connection with us is well known. But if the Tiges are offering $700k and a first round draft pick and we only value him at $500k and a second rounder + young fringe best-22 player there's every chance he end up there instead.

One could have said the same of Jeremy Howe and the Suns. They offered more him cash than Collingwood. They had way more to trade with than Collingwood. In the end, Howe just wanted to play at Collingwood so we had no choice but to deal with the Pies.

I agree, and it's much ado about nothing. He didn't even support Freo as a kid, he was a Crows supporter as I recall. 

But one innocent photo sure has caused a lot of noise and high hopes coming out of the Docker camp. You have to wonder why West Coast are almost never mentioned in the discussion about him going home. They are also based in Perth last time I checked.

Actually funny enough Brayshaw was a Freo supporter.

Half of Demonland are acting like a woman scorned. 

"No way will he stick around, he's just another [censored], he'll leave me for a younger hotter version as soon as he can. He never even loved me, he was just using me for sex"

This is a rarity in my opinion . The whole  "he barracked for them as a kid" deal is just irrelevant. 

If Hogan leaves to play for Freo, it will be because he wants to go home to Perth.

It would certainly explain how the story is consistently that he is going to Freo and not west Coast.

He doesn't post much on social media, probably learnt a pretty harsh lesson from that one.

Just used for sex? That sounds alright. How do you arrange that? I'm prepared to give it a go (for science).

I see Fyfe as a player who plays in 4 flags for MFC before going on to coach us to another 4. Then joins the board of Collingwood as a double agent and destroys them from within. Then becomes an AFL commissioner and kicks all other clubs off the MCG and rigs the draw so we never have to travel, even to Etihad.

Now THAT'S a post.

Not much in it about Hogan really. Good to hear that Deano and hopefully the others, seem to know the importance of beating teams like Fremantle. Also great that it sounds as though he's keen to sign!

More just the entertainment of how they wrote the article. They're selling the dream over there.

Some of this speculation is a bit much.

 

wait until the off season, then we can all go nuts waiting for an extension on his deal. If he isn't signed by round 1 it is very likely he is gone, we can all melt then

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... 

Dont get me wrong unleash I agree we r no longer a basket case but my comment was more around it doesn't take a rocket scientist ala David King to figure that out and tell us what we already know.

Fair points

I just think it's nice to have it confirmed in general footy circles rather then an online forum. Lets be honest no FA is listening to a footy forum

Yeah, my old man lives in WA and he reckons they rave on about Hogan as if he is over the line.

Most people in the village are idiots though.

So, this means nudda. It's just stupid people talkin' stupid.

Hardly remarkable stuff. And not much turns on it.

I reckon he's a certainty to re-sign.

There were people in SA who honestly, truly thought they'd successfully lured Jack Viney to Port.  People will believe literally anything if they want it to be true.

    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.

    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
