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.........

Not sure if you’re serious; if you are, check out clinical anxiety on google, it’s no picnic

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

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 TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears. But unli

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi
