Scully was dishonerable about the way he did business, Promised Jimmy Stynes Yadda Yadda and then left.

At this piont I really beleive we need to play a bit of hard ball with Jesse and his manager.

I just have a feeling in my gut that he wil go!

I think we set a very short time line and say, Well u can see whats on offer, are u in or out!!?????

If he hedges I would be very tempted to be ruthless and Say..

Well Jesse, you have one year of your contract left and we.. will trade you for what's in the best interest of the MFC.

If you believe then what's stopping you?? Sign or ,we will see what we can get, cut our losses and move on!

Time to get very business like and not be seen as cap in hand!!

For some reason I have a gut feeling that he will decide to go as well. In which case the MFC will have to broker a deal that best compensates our club. 

I just hope we don't cave and take anything less than what GWS got for the Treloar trade. If we're looking at picks alone it's would be say a pick 3 and say pick 7.  Then we have to face the prospect of three years development and the risk of picking up a dud.

Acquiring Hogan at his age is hardly going against Freo's rebuild philosophy. Hogan could be a one in a generation player. You really think they'd pass up on him for an unproven high draft pick and a handy player?

I don't disagree with that. My point is that he will cost an awful lot and that will potentially add years to their rebuild.

And a player who is tempted is a player who will not be in the right frame of mind to give his best! I think its time to force his and managers hand! Declare allegiance or we will decide for you! Time for MFC to grow some gonads with List management!!!

Lots of different perspectives on Jesse's situation on this thread, which is great. Why some posters feel they need to re-state their view over and over again, I'm not sure.

Do you want me to go back to the typewriter "Clark"??

it "might" pan out that way, depending what you mean by "cheap", but all i'm saying is don't just assume it.

I'm not assuming it.

I'm expecting it.

ok, define cheap then. 2nd round? 3rd round? trade?

I'm expecting it because Freo don't hold a second round pick at this stage. I'm sure GWS would be looking at that range so trading of players is a possibility with a third.

For Hogan

Eagles ... Gaff and their pick 12 (draft 2016)

Freo ... pick 3 (draft 2016) and 1st round pick in 2017 draft

Gaff and pick 12.  We'd be ripped off big time but maybe that's the best sort of deal we can accept. 

Much prefer the Freo option you've put forward.

Serious question Cards, does he get called purple because his face resembles the head of a penis while the shaft is being strangled?

If one imagines Damian in the throes of  verbal exchange and young Damian vehemently flogging his point, I think one may have a clear image.

norm, you do realise that for freo to do that they would have to trade in a 1st round pick from another club in 2016,2017 or 2018 in order to satisfy the afl's 2 first round drafts in 4 years rule. it's doable but very risky (and costly)

i don't think i'd enjoy imagining purple "flogging his point". i'll leave that sort of imagination up to uncle bitters

This sucks. How come there's always so much speculation with Melbourne players from Scully, Frawley and now Hogan. Many other clubs don't cop this stuff year after year like us.

We keep losing our star players. Waiting for the day when a big name nominates us. 

Totally agree. It bloody sucks.

The Age article smells like the typical berley that a player manager or club throws out to fingerlings like the Dees when everything is cut and dried behind the scenes. The Only good that has come out of this constant yearlong speculation is the revelation that Jess Hogan is an almost useless kick for goal. So i say, let it bleed.

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
