2 extra years is good for the club. It will then know just how good he is, rather than be paying long, big contract, largely on promise.

Good point.

Also gives us 2 extra years to plan for what will inevitably be a mountainous offer from other clubs when he becomes RFA

Ball is back in our court. Kudos again to  the MFC for the way we played this.

 

Hey @TGR, what do you think of this?

Amazing stuff, made my hour long drive into work so much better when I heard this.

I wonder if AFL Trade Whisperer made it to 4K followers on twitter?

In the Fairfax papers trade article today:

"Convincing Jesse Hogan to open negotiations on extending his contract beyond the end of next year is the biggest priority.

Michael Gleeson"

I couldn't agree more.  Great move by Jesse and the club unless there was a Dangerfield type player up for grabs in the trade period, retaining Jesse is so much better than anything elese on offer.

Jesse will have a press conference in Perth @ 4.30 EST.  Looking forward to hearing him declare himself a Demon!

Now, the club can really get its list management strategy going.  Just a couple more key players to lock down.

Go Dees!!

Wonderful news, I really couldn't see a way we could have "won" if he'd left...Goody has the best Melbourne list to work with in a long time that's for sure!

Yes, even if we got an early first round pick, what's the value in that if you can not retain them once they actually become dominant players, rather than just players with high potential.  Incubating players for other clubs like we did with Scott Thompson and $cully is a no returns game.

I just hope we can lock in the gun group of young mids we have coming through like Pratracca, Brayshaw, Oliver, Hunt and Co when it comes time.

Wow, you go off the Internet for an hour... But absolutely brilliant news!

It might be an obvious statement to make, but I'll be the first to predict that Jesse is going to have an absolute belter of a 2017 season. Getting this contract done before the start of next year will surely remove a lot of stress from Jesse's mind. 

For those who missed his interview on trade radio (myself included), Josh Mahoney will be on SEN at 10:25

Who were the media who said he would go?

Very sensible decision on his part. With an uncertain family situation he would not have wanted to commit for too long. So everyone a winner here. It suggests to me he really wants to be with the club and be part of building the team.

Well done, now for that kicking rehab.

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
