Farewell Jesse Hogan

John Banner (Shultz), Leon Askin (General Burkhalter) and Robert Clary (LeBeau) were other cast members who were born Jewish, the latter having been liberated from Buchenwald.

Side notes: 

- When Klemperer was approached to play Colonel Klink, he agreed to do it only if the writers made Klink an idiot.

- The scar on Askin’s face came from being beaten while in the custody of the SS. And, as a little boy, he performed in front of Franz Joseph, Emperor of Austria-Hungary.

- Banner posed for U.S. Military recruiting posters during the war.

- Clary was the youngest of 14 children, and is the only major cast member still living.

I believe the guy who played the Gestapo Major Hochstetter was also Jewish as well as numerous other minor characters in the show. It is strange to think now that all those actors who were directly impacted by the holocaust could in a relatively short time afterwards be willing to be involved in a comedy about Nazis. Could never happen these days.

Maybe, but I believe he was also a womaniser with a keen interest in photography and video, if you know what I mean

Seems like a reasonable knockabout type of bloke.

Why? Because right-wingers would claim it was insulting to Nazis?

I have discussed this with some long time Jewish friends who love the show. There are mixed reactions and many older generation ones love the show. Younger ones who have some knowledge of the show think it is abhorrent. This kind of humour does not play well in modern times.

I’m guessing the club knew about this and it contributed to us trading him for what may have seemed unders. Hope he pulls through it ok; he’s had a rough time of it the past few years with his fathers death and his own health battles.

Wow.... In all honesty I feel sorry for the guy. I am the same age as him and cannot imagine going through what he has gone through in his short career. 

 

But no matter what you have gone through being in an AFL environment for as long as he has, should have taught him some professionalism. At some point getting on the sauce a week before round one he must have known this is not going to end well, and will make headlines and likely make his situation worse. Surely being back home around friends and family (which is why he left melbourne?) He has someone, anyone to turn to if he is struggling with his mental issues rather than getting on it? 

 

Not an attack on his character, but maybe goody and the decision makers at the dees new about these issues and this is the reason we happy to let him go for "unders"

From a supporter point of view, we as a club clearly knew what we were doing when we traded him.  No doubt about it.  The same goes for Watts being traded the previous season.

On a personal level, I feel sorry for him.  As a few above have mentioned, he has been through a bucket load of stuff that not many people go through at his age, and he's had to do it in the limelight of being an AFL footballer.  I hope he is able to pull through and just be happy with being Jesse Hogan the person, not Jesse Hogan the AFL footballer.

Star Fremantle recruit Jesse Hogan has been deemed unavailable for Round 1 selection against North Melbourne as he deals with “clinical anxiety”.

Fremantle football boss Peter Bell confirmed Hogan didn’t train on Sunday following some “poor choices” with alcohol consumption the night before.

what a sad situation. I am not suprised at all, considering what he went through last year. 

The photo of him at the nightclub before Christmas told me enough

I hope Jesse gets his life together. I don’t think he wanted to leave the MFC, but he had to go home

Good luck Mate...

I feel really sad for Hogan. I began to stop hoping Hogan wouldn't leave when Freemantle hesitated. It would seem his issues were well known. Most of all, I feel sad for the lad. I wish him all the best and hope things work out for him in the long term.

I always felt football was secondary in his life , and no wonder with all the stuff he has gone through.

I doubt whether he will reach his full potential and I feel he is a candidate for possible early retirement.

So Jesse has clinical anxiety because he's moved from Melbourne FC to Fremantle FC?

It might take him some time to get there, but once he returns to having somewhat of a 'normal' life (coming to terms with his father's passing, cancer battle, etc.) he will dominate. Perth is where he needs to be to get the best out of himself.

When it clicks for him (and it eventually will), he'll explode.

    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

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    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

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    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

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    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
