Farewell Jesse Hogan

Recommended Posts

Back home with all his dropkick mates who aren’t professional footballers encouraging him to get on the p*ss.....for a guy with mental health issues probably not the best environment

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.

I’m not so sure if it will ever click for him, likes partying too much.

The clock is ticking.........

He was my favourite Demon player, as evidenced by the 1313 no. in my bio, so I wish him well.

I won't try and second guess what his issues are, but once again I applaud the club on making the trading decision they did.

If you've doubted some of Goody's decisions I suggest you start having some faith.

It’s interesting to note that our forward line used to consist of Hogan, Jurrah and Clarke, who we all thought were world beaters.

Just goes to show it takes a lot more than natural talent to succeed.

All lacking “the right stuff”. Stillborn champions. Hogan has a chance to turn things around but I doubt it.

There are a couple Perth based dees fans on Twitter who have posted numerous times the murmurs around Hogans off season. All you have to do is follow his Instagram page & see most weekends he is out on the grog.

I hope he can get himself together but it seems this hasn't just happened, obvious why we let him go

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

yes he's gone from a club we're he is just one of the pieces in a good side, to a team we're he has to be the messiah at a crap team

25 minutes ago, old dee said:

Hmm you still think it was him driving the change?

 maybe or maybe not but that's not the point I'm making,  he's gone from a top side to a crap side, of course he's got anxiety, he now has to be the Messiah where at Melbourne he was one of the disciples.

What concern is that to you? Hogan’s private life should be private, and not really relevant to us any more.

I couldn't careless what he does in his down time, just stating that this news hasn't come as a shock to a lot of people especially those in Perth.

Yeah nah.

I personally think it will be the worse for him. He's back with his mates who are known to be quite shady when it comes to off field activities. 

Add the fact the Freo's culture is quite toxic with poor leadership around the club. He'll play some good games and dominate at times, but i doubt we'll see his full potential.

Goody won me over completely the moment he shipped Watts out. Funny enough there are still people on here who still think that was a poor decision...... crazy huh...

This is another decision Goody has a huge tick next to his name. Which in a way is a bit sad because i too was a huge fan of Hoges.

But we are far better off and i am quite excited about what May and KK will bring to this club.

It's a bit rich to say his private life should be private when he posts it on social media for all to see.

This is not necesssarily aimed at Hogan as we don't exactly what is going on with him but the sporting landscape is littered with supremely talented juniors who fail to transition to a professional sport. There is a drive that is needed to get to the top of sport. Some juniors coast along being better than their peers without putting on a huge amount of effort. Raw talent gets you there as a junior in a lot of sports but they don't have the drive or burning desire.

I would put Watts in that category, like Sylvia. Great talent but inability to transition to a professional sport to excel.

Plenty of others have less talent but a burning desire.

I'd take the second guy every time and I think the Dees are getting better at choosing which players have a better chance of making it.

If you think swapping clubs is the reason for Hogan having anxiety, then you really have no idea about mental health.

It’s becoming a common problem with footballers these days. 

Hopefully, he’ll come good.

And not just footballers either!

The Black Dog is a hard beast to tame

It can manifest in in ages and regardless of socio economic situation is becoming an ongoing problem..

I hope he can get through it

Anxiety is a horrible and debilitating thing to deal with. Anyone who has had it would know what a struggle it is. It impacts every part of your life and when you’ve gone thru as much as he has, it’s little wonder. 

I wish him all the best and hope he gets himself sorted. He has so so so much talent and deserves a long and successful career.

    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

    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
