Take it from me it is on the money I wont go into personal details But I have been aware of it for some time.  I had some posts regarding it removed from the thread.

Thanks 'Pennant', I trust your posts...until now I wasn't sure what to believe with this situation.

Mark is one of life's gentlemen.  I remember visiting his video store in Brighton a decade ago when he was going through a less challenging time, but challenging nonetheless.  A genuinely nice man.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

From the AFL website:

He also said he was confident of retaining young key forward Jesse Hogan, who is contracted until the end of 2017.

The club is keen to extend Hogan's contract and are hopeful talks will resume after they were put on hold until the end of this season.

"Jesse's management and the club said that they would look at it at the end of the year. We are now at the end of the year," Goodwin said. 

"One thing I do know about Jesse is he loves his teammates, he loves playing with this club and I have got a really strong relationship with Jesse. 

"Our focus is to make Jesse the best player. He still has 12 months to go in his contract and I know we are going to work really hard to retain Jesse and we are really confident that he wants to be a part of Melbourne." 

 

I think these are the most promising comments we have heard thus far regarding Jesse's contract. I'm now more hopeful he will stay.

Saber: I am just passing on what I have been told.  You can dismiss it or accept it, personally I don't care.

Thanks for the updates GNF. It makes reading through all the carp on some of these threads worthwhile.

I know exactly what you are going through. I wish you all the best. The Life of special people is sometimes way too short. 12 years ago today I lost the best wife and mother anyone could wish for.

Last line is:

The Demons are also confident of retaining Jesse Hogan, who is out of contract at the end of 2017.

 so lets chill.

And all the best Markc

I'd feel more confident if the highlighted line wasn't included. If it's a foregone conclusion that he'll re-sign, the club wouldn't have to work really hard to retain him.

I try not to care about the problems of others. Particularly anonymous others over an internet site, but posts like this make it bloody tough.

Feel for you mate. Deeply in fact. Hope your kids remember her in a way that befits your memory of her. Must have been tough for them as well as you.

It wasn't my intention to take sympathy away from markc. Just trying to give support to someone with similar situation. But yes it is hard especially for the kids.

I can see that you were not attention seeking mate. I paid my respects to Markc also.

I can only imagine how I would feel if I was sitting here on the anniversary of losing my wife, and it terrifies me. 

I hope you and your kids are ok today.

i am sorry for your loss mate , I am sorry for bringing this up today , i just thought if a little of what hell it is posters could understand might help 

I don't want sympathy , i was just hoping to make people understand what he might be going through , there are plenty others here have fought and lost this battle here  

I talk to people to try and help other understand what happens to families, in these trying times. Its Not easy, that look i see in my wife eyes when i do things for our daughters 

thats what breaks my heart. Most thankfully will never have to understand it fully. Others will

I have always enjoyed reading Demonland and thank everyone involved. I am sorry i have derailed the thread , a first for me !

And to you and your family.

So many of us just don't know what others are going through in their daily lives.

To some losing a footy match is as big as it gets. Pales into insignificance when we think of what you have gone through and what Mark is going through.

All the very best to both of you and your families.

Anyone who has or is living with a Family member who is terminal Ill can understand this 

I take each day as it comes , I don't make plans  far in advance , for myself and my kids , our time with my wife ( their mother) is especially special to us , 

I couldn't imagine living states apart and having this happen. 

Time to give the Kid ago , think about how you would feel watching , hearing , seeing someone so close , being that ILL 

My wife tells us to go out , to enjoy ourselves, to be a family , as I am sure his dad would tell him to follow his dreams , play AFL, these things put a smile on my wife's face

for her to see us happy, makes her happy . I am not saying everyone is the same. but you need to understand how they and he could feel.

hoping my words will help some people understand what he COULD be going through , sometimes things are greater than our club.

As one of his sponsors I want him to stay but can understand otherwise, football would be one of the last things on his mind at the moment 

 

mark

 

ps on a side note iI thank Demonland for being here, its keeps me busy 

 

 

 

Thank you for sharing Mark. Can't begin to imagine how difficult that situation must be for all of you. Many thoughts for you and your family.

Don't apologize, it's nice to see the Demonland family getting around one if their own...beats the usual family bickering!

FWIW I'd be surprised if the club weren't giving Jesse all of the time (off) and space he needs. His welfare needs to be the priority, and if the clubs culture has turned around as much as I think, the footy club would be pretty unified in that position.

    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

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell
