Where there's smoke there's...



Recommended Posts

Good news is Hogan's now given us an excuse to pull the pin on this 'going back to Perth whenever he's got spare time' routine that's carried on for far too long now.

Rewarding him with time off due to suspension was a mistake from Goodwin and he doesn't ever have to repeat it now.

Early morning beach session when he gets back I'd suggest.

I just remembered I was there. I got pretty close to Jesse, he was smoking menthols. 

Relax. It might have just been cannabis.

This is only a story if AFL players don't, normally, smoke during the season.

I'm 99.9% sure that they do, which means this is not a story.

They do. Tobacco is discouraged, not outright banned. I believe the general advice is if you're going to have a cigarette, do it after a match, out of the public eye, and don't overdo it.

Hogan broke one of those rules but aside from that it's not massive from a playing perspective. From a PR perspective it's bad

 Can we get him arrested before he lights up another one?

To save him from himself I mean.

He's worse than Ben Cousins.A menace  to himself and society at large.He must be stopped.

If he cops a clip from the Club for being stupid, he'll probably sulk for the next month.

Wake up Jesse!

Get a life. Footballers are human beings. J. Christus, he smoked a CIGARETTE, ban him for life...

In the meantime you are part of a society which makes a fortune from supplying tobacco and the tax it supplies to the coffers of various governments. Have it both ways????/

I truly believe, Biffen, you have the correct attitude. Use him as Trade fodder. Play him at Casey for six months.

Think it is more the principle that he is rocking it at a music festival and taking advantage of the clubs Grace to let him go home for a few days after he [censored] up and got himself rubbed out for two weeks.

What are you on about. Earlier in the thread I said him smoking a cigarette is no big deal. It's merely the *look* of him smoking that is bad.

Nice to see him taking advantage of the club who for some reason let him go back to Perth after he let them down.

Needs to get his ass on next flight to Melbourne and do extra sessions while out suspended.  Which is exactly what should have been happening.

Bit OTT there Pet.

Plenty of players smoke. His only mistake is having some wannabe paparazzi nearby who wanted 5 seconds of fame. He has a few days off from training. Give the guy a break.

The cigarette is irrelevant really, he should be in Melbourne supporting his teammates who busted their ass on the weekend while he was prancing around like a fairy at a music festival. 

 

I totally agree, prancing like a fairy at a music festival is a disgrace and reflects badly on his masculinity.

I can see people's perspective on the humor side but when your serving a 2 match suspension from a dumb and stupidity act then its not a good look at all, especially when his team is busting their asses off to cover the loss for him and Lewis.

As some have said if it was Jack Watts he would have copped an absolute roasting in the media. Its a [censored] poor effort from Hogan and i expect better from him. Im all for having a life outside of footy but jesus at least be smart with your decisions and actions. Don't care if he is smoking darts just do it at an appropriate time when there's no grubby scrubs taking snaps of you.

Its no surprise to me though that this has come about. Jesse isn't exactly squeaky clean off field as some on here think he is.

Next time he goes to Perth we should put him in lockdown so he can't actually see any of his friends. He could just go back to his room and sit amongst the trophys and be grounded.

As long as it doesn't become a habit I don't gaf. The club will have a word to him I'm sure but we have to remember he's a young person and If the worst thing he's doing is having a smoke in his time off then it's not a huge deal.

Not playing because of his own fark up, at a music festival having a dart, no drinks of course, (wandering around like his goal kicking action from last year), you're paid as a professional act like it pal.

I bet no one here would say within Jesse's earshot that he was "prancing around like a fairy".

I'd love to be a fly on the wall for that!

I'm disappointed with his choice of pant with that style of shoe .

Also, if he is going to "prance about", he should put more hip movement into it.

To be honest,he's not even trying in the fashion stakes and he might need a complete makeover.

The club let him go home so the music festival is not unexpected.  If the festival is a bad look that's on the club not Hogan. 

Having a dart isn't great, but it's a pretty small issue. 

 

I was actually very impressed with the second video in the article, with the touched shot at goal. Not many players at AFL level would show that level of sportsmanship, and it should have been widely apprlauded.

    A WALK IN THE PAST by Whispering Jack

    On Monday night, the Melbourne Football Club handed out four life memberships. Two of those awards went to men who are long gone. Charles ‘Chubby’ Forrester and James ‘Jas’ Byrne played for the club in the 1870s, even before the Victorian Football Association was formed. The other two are current skipper Max Gawn and swingman Tom McDonald, who almost left the club at the end of the pandemic-affected 2020 season. Some fans might have raised their eyebrows and wondered whether the emphasis on hist

    SOUNDS OF SILENCE by Whispering Jack

    This was my first game for points involving the Demons in more than a year and a half and the long march to Carrara turned out to be worthwhile. The game was won in a single withering quarter that was dominated by Melbourne on the back of an outstanding display from Karen Paxman. The four-time All Australian picked up 13 touches for the stanza to set up a five goal to nothing second term after a lacklustre start in which the cleaner, sharper Gold Coast notched up the first two goals of the game

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 1920 when it finally petered out in April of

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom. That stat

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h
