Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the issue of illicit drugs in footy, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.

Hawks key forwards are Fitz & Shoenmakers, if Hogan leaves it's not the end of the world, it would have to be a good trade and I'm sure the club will do their best...

And it's why they won't win a flag. Rougheadless. In big finals, you nedd a big guy that can take the pressure off occasionally, particularly if the last option is to bomb it long inside 50.

I think this is more alluding to the fact that the Hawks don't hold back when it comes to the trade period, so much so that they will chase after all the guns in the competition. If not, I would never watch AFL again if Hawthorn were to land Mitchell, O'Meara, Hogan and Fyfe in one year.

Update: Jesse Hogan's old man's health has deteriorated. Naturally this is a difficult time for Jesse Hogan and as such contract negotiations have taken a backseat during this difficult, emotional time. 

However, Jesse has again confirmed to the club that he wishes to remain at Melbourne and sign a long term contract. 

The club has been contacted by Freo both club expect Hogan to stay a Dee as this is what he has been saying. However, if he was to change his mind over the death of his father Fyfe would be the trade.

But let me say again, the club extremely confident (99%) he is staying.

Also the club believes no player in the top 25 will request a trade this year.

There seems a kneejerk reaction when anyone discussing a players action or inaction becomes  labeled as bashing.

Nonsense. Many here are being robustly clinical and removing the lads character and/or motive from the equation and just evaluating the actions or inaction on their merit.

Jesse has a year on our paper left.

Jesse may or may not go 

It's not in the club's interest (probably) to see him go.

It's not in club's interest to have him play out 2017 and not signed beyond

Whatever is the impediment to signing on it must be discussed and the club needs to have that signature before trade week. It will be manifest folly to not do so.

This isn't about Jesse as a bloke it's about Jesse's value to the Club. Club cones first.

If folk cannot differentiate, that's then them and not the discussion.

Unless there's a situation like the one layed out three posts above yours. Would explain a lot.

So what you mean is there is a difference, we need to treat him as a footy player and not a human being?

Having lost my father to a long painful illness I can understand how he feels. Very painful. But if GNF's info is reliable, then there are talks going on between the two clubs for what would arguably be the biggest trade of the century.

This is obviously a very stressful and sad time for the family. Clearly his thoughts are with his family and not his footy at this time.

Wish them all well in a difficult time.

Can we now ask for those that want to knock Jesse, to just ease back and give him some space.

Maybe those that attack his body language, might have a better understanding of what he is going through.

So therefore you are intimating that he should be treated as a commodity, not taking into account any personal circumstances? And he should make a decision for the sake of the club?

Try asking what I meant, without reverting to type and insulting

Then explain what you meant by your statement, it says club first, so I assume Jesse puts aside any issues now and makes the decision to suit the club, is that correct?

What if he is rushed into doing it, because of circumstances, and actually makes the wrong decision for himself and the club?

If what GOF posted is indeed correct, what everybody needs to do now is give him space, he is contracted for 2017, if we do the right thing by him and his family then he may feel that the MFC is the best place to be, not only a footy player but as a human being

It is like what Mark Stevens asked Roughy last night on the news, he asked him whether he was considering getting back to footy next season, when he is battling cancer, the last thing he wants to consider is a return to footy, thankfully Roughy let him live on live TV

Did see that. Roughy's response was spot on.

Terribly specific result for a player who hasn't agreed a trade to MFC & wouldn't have even spoken to the club, considering Jesse has stated he wishes to stay.

There's definitely an element of truth to your post, but someone is adding a fair bit of mustard, whether it's you or a source blowing smoke up your arse.

 

And... his father may be ill, but he ain't dead yet.

However, if he was to change his mind over the death of his father Fyfe would be the trade.[/b]

Its very simple.

The context is the club and a players value to it. It really doens't matter who it is.

Jesse can do and will what ever is required by his life to be. That and of itself isn't the issue.  Tha'ts one side of a coin. That many here can and will discuss the other side of the coin seems beyond your sensibilities Saty.

If you have even bothered to READ and COMPREHEND properly what is often =written by others  , not just read into things what you will, then the club ought to look after itself , yes.

I have empathy with Hogan's position. It's a very sad and emotional time for sure.  Does the rest of the world stop ? Will the rest of the AFL comp put all things aside ?  Of course not. Some pragmatism , no matter how unsavoury to your good self it might be , must be utilised.

 

Shlt happens....and some people have to deal with shlt.

It is no wonder I can't comprehend, some of the above is barely comprehensible.

Of course the club should look after itself, but if a player has a personal issue, and he has a contract for next season, where is the rush?

The Club these days will have Plan A, B, C etc

This is one player we are talking about, yes a very good one, with a poor attitude if you listen to some, he is signed for the 2017 season, if he wants to leave this year, I can assume the Club would play more than hardball to get a good deal done.

But if they are comfortable with the situation, where is the rush?

Yeah, you lost me there. It doesn't work this way.

You're telling me that Fyfe and his manager have agreed on a trade to the Demons on the proviso that the personal life of another player may or may not go a certain way, that they may or may not request a trade to Perth? Player movement doesn't work this way and a player of Fyfe's caliber isn't going to make career-defining decisions based on the actions of another player.

Not to mention Fyfe is a free agent at the same time Jesse's contract ends; the club would be braindead to trade for him right now if he wanted to come to us, especially when the full extent of his injury is a mystery to other clubs.

I wonder, is this from your same source that promised us Josh Kennedy, Patrick Dangerfield and Dion Prestia over the last 3 years?

Wow..

Mate give it a rest. Most people come onto this thread wanting to read news, updates and opinions related to Jesse Hogan. At the moment only about 10% of the posts in here are actually related to that. We're not interested in you playing Judge Judy. Who gives a [censored] if people believe GNF or not? It's their choice. At least GNF is sticking to the topic.

By the way, I saw a rumour referencing a Freo board member a few pages back but can't find the original post? Anyone got it?

My gut feeling now is that he might be gone. I can't find the footage anymore but when he was the Juventus exhibition he was asked about his contract. The way he looked down and made no real reference to staying with Melbourne in his answer made me feel a bit uneasy. Just my opinion, as the media outlets actually reported it the other way afterwards.

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.

    TRAINING: Sunday 7th April 2024

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down in the rain to Gosch's Paddock for the Demon Family Series April School Holiday Open Training session. Not such a good morning, weather wise. As I arrived, it starting raining, settled into watching some Victory players have a kick around. The MFC squad come out as the rain abated, they had wide smiles as the walked down the roped corridor. Plenty of joy from the supporters towards them, kids everywhere, maybe about 500 to a 1000 of us.
