The Jesse Hogan Panic Room - all contract talk here

Recommended Posts

I reckon the club would have asked Jesse what his plans were so we could consider our options come trade week, if he was definitely going to leave we could at least get full return for him on the trade table, but it sounds as though the response was very positive.

Really?

Someone on here said that Bartlett told them we weren't trading Hogan.

That was Karl Langdon

That's right. So this 'understanding' that the journo is referring to is based on the word of a bloke who in the past insisted hogan was going to Freo.

Im sure he'll stay but there's nothing in this article that we didn't already know.

They are nothing quotes to the media. Lots of words with little substance.

At this stage he is still a Demon

If Jesse is a crow supporter then surely the chance to play under one the crows greatest ever players in Goodwin for a couple of years is a enticing prospect?

Lets wring our hands at the thought of every other team trying to poach him while we're at it!

Good news that the press are all talking about him staying.  I know it doesn't mean heaps until he signs but its a lot better than everyone writing that he is gone. 

a 3 year deal at the end of the season would be awesome.

So it's bad news when they talk about him leaving ?

There's never been any strong evidence he'd go.

if they were talking about it being likely he'd go rather than likely he'd stay, yeah it would be a bad sign

They're wrong more often than right.

You must have been slitting your wrist when Langdon said recently that his mail was that Hogan was definitely returning to WA.

Mark Robinson said Dayne Beams was staying at Collingwood and that you could "take it to the bank".  Naturally enough he left.

I take no notice of them until late in the year when genuine talk is starting to come out.

Please yourself, of course.

I'm not worried about Hogan any more because we've always got Dawes.

we could have 4 super fast cumbers surrounding Dawesy in a 360 degree formation ready for any mark that may be spilt.

I call it the diamond offence!

I don't think Dawes has ever shown the talent that Hogan has and with Dawes is now in his late 20s while Hogan is in his his early 20s, I don't think we can rely on Dawes to cover the loss of Hogan.

The information was passed on from Langdon who said he'd spoken to Bartlett the night prior at a function.

I reckon there's a 99.9999% chance Hogan will be at Melbourne next year, even if he requests a trade to Freo in Sep/Oct this year.

Freo will offer us peanuts, say for example a first round draft pick and a 'has been' like a Clancee Pearce, Matt De Boar or Mzungu..which we'd laugh at. Meanwhile we'd ask for a first rounder as well as a future first rounder and a young prospect like Blakely or Weller...which Freo would laugh at. A mega 4 or 5 club deal would have to take place to get it over the line. We hold the cards this year.

Next year we don't have any power at the table.

The absolute dream result would be that he re-signs for a further 4 years which would take him to free agency (in its current form).

If he requests a trade he will leave this year. Freo should do better next year and won't have a top 5 pick.

 

Reckon he signs on till he is a FA, then probably goes.

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo
