Brad Hill is not anywhere near being in Hawthorns top 15 players. He does the occasional useful thing but he's a passenger on the Hawthorn bus. His team mates carry him for the most part. No loss to the hawks if he goes. Clanger numbers go down with him out of their side.

Brad Hill - 75 games, 3 flags.  There's no justice is football.

31 possessions and 5 tackles against the Tigers for Hill and 25/3 the previous week. He gives them a lot of outside run and applies pressure.

The much maligned Matt Jones had 30 & 4 against Freo.  Hill is an ordinary player in the right place with the right attributes at the right time.  Really I can't think of a bigger passenger on the greatness bus.

Mark Blake from Geelong. The luckiest hack to ever get a premiership medal.

Bill James from the Tiges has to take that cake. Played 1 VFL game and it was a winning Grand Final back in the 20's.

It's easy to be an outside player in a great team. Outsider players tend to struggle in poor sides because they don't get the ball enough. Watts being a good example. No surprise that his form has improved as the team's has. 

By definition, outside runners are downhill skiers. Every good team needs them, and every good team has them.

Also Cam Mooney and his premiership for North - 1 possession and on the bench for 90% of the time

Listening to SEN now, not particularly encouraging news re Jesse from Brian Waldron.

He does Perth radio on Tuesday nights, says everyone is 100% certain Jesse's going home. Freo does not need to get him this year, and trade with Melbourne, they plan on getting him next year for nothing. This year they will get McCarthy and are going to target Lobb. How many tall forwards do they need???

I know it's not telling us anything that hasn't been said before, but still...

And how do they plan on getting Hogan for nothing? The whole 'we'll snare him in the pre-season draft' scenario never really happens, and if he were to actually leave, Jesse isn't the kind of player that would pull a move like that and shaft the MFC.

I'm more confident that he is staying in Melbourne with every week that passes.

With Hardie and Langdon.

mmmmm....not the best source in WA.

Waldron's info was a little unreliable, at first he was talking about Hogan going as a RFA until KB put him straight.

I don't know what Jessie is planning to do, maybe even he doesn't yet.

What I do know is that Waldron is trying to carve out a media career and as we all know fear & controversy sells.

So 100% of Hardie & Langdon think he's going home but another 100% of Jakovic and Gossige believe he's not....so on my extensive poll of 4 WA broadcasters if my sums are correct he's 50% certain.

That doesn't make a good headline, 100% certain.

dd, did you get the feeling Waldron was just trying to be provocative? 

He thought Hogan was a free agent next year and Freo could get him for nothing. 

Not sure what bs they feed him on Perth radio but it seems a bit short of facts.

That SEN segment was a joke. They were saying hogan was restricted free agent next year among a few other questionable points. If the other posters above didn't already discredit it enough, be very mindful how uneducated some of these reporters are

Every player can be a free agent of sorts these days. Depends on how much they sook, tug on mummy's apron strings  and dummy spit. It's a character thing.

They can be a free agent of sorts, but that doesn't mean the opposite of the trade doesn't have to give anything up.

He is the cornerstone of our future success. Who is Freo's? Neale or Fyfe? Neither is a key forward who are rare as hens teeth so you could argue a straight swap for either is still unders for Jesse (though I personally think Fyfe will come back from his leg still a gun).

One of those two as a bare minimum as far as I'm concerned.

Having said that, I still think we will sign Jesse for 4 years and he will depart thereafter.

Interestingly re Watts a lot of his best work this season has been inside. He's really stepped up in this area which is allowing him to influence results when game is locked in an arm wrestle.

Can I ask why there isn't the same rumours going around for Patrick Cripps.  From country WA played at East Fremantle, if the Dockers are chasing young WA stars this guy would be very high on their shopping list.  You can build a midfield around this bloke he will be a super star of the game.

    CANCEL CULTURE by Whispering Jack

    I’m not one who likes mixing politics with sport but it should be noted there have been some unusual trends in the world of sport lately. In the US, Major League Baseball announced that it’s moving the 2021 All-Star Game and the 2021 MLB Draft out of Georgia, in response to the state’s new voting law. Over here, there’s a move to force Carlton to change its club song because the original song on which it was based (written in the late 1800s) has “racist connotations”. The Blues maintain the curr

    MOGGIES MASTERED by George on the Outer

    They say that herding cats is an impossible task but not for the Melbourne Demons who through relentless pressure, scored a commanding 25 point victory in Round 4 over Geelong at the MCG. The team that missed the AFL finals only once in the past dozen years were shown up by the new Demons of 2021 who have recorded their first 4-0 opening to the season in 21 years! Melbourne knew what was coming, and it was Geelong who were shown up for their inability to adapt to the 2021 style of foot

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    MAX IN SPACE

    Demon skipper Max Gawn is one big unit at 208cm and lately he’s been standing even taller. We already know that he’s unstoppable in the air when going for a mark but with three consecutive victories to open the season, you might say that he has his head in the clouds.  And that is literally true thanks to a fan at Demonland.com who recently arranged for our big ruckman to go even further than the clouds but way beyond to the edge of space and into the stratosphere.

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs. The end result was much more than an embarrassment for the club given what was at stake at th

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f
