You removed my post last night about a video doing the rounds of Jesse with his pants down and his mouth moving like a pendulum on the basis it was yet to be reported. Well it looks like this morning it now has been by the Age.

Its really unfortunate The Age has published that video.  It is undated so could have nothing to do with recent events and could only have been included to embarrass Jessie. 

It is not helpful to Jesse's predicament and could make his anxiety worse knowing such private times are now public.

Very low of The Age to publish. Verging on gutter journalism.  There is a limit imv to 'click bait'.  Time for the media to leave him alone.

I hope they take that video down soon.

Best wishes, Jessie.  Life has dealt you some cruel blows but hope you get strong and can overcome the setbacks, regardless of what happens in football.

Do you know that?

Perhaps all parties felt his mental health could be assisted by returning to WA. 

I don’t know any more than any other uninformed poster.  But I do know that professional well run clubs don’t put players with mental health issues up for trades.  AFL is a very stressful profession for young players, and mental health issues are not uncommon.  Clubs have professionals supporting players. 

Jesse requested a trade and his struggles would have been a factor for sure, and the club would have considered all the factors.  But it is not a Jack Watts scenario.

If he has a big problem with anxiety I hope he can get off the alcohol.

Anyone that has had an issue with anxiety at any level can tell you that it's a bad cocktail.

I know personally that if I have problems and anxiety kicks in the first thing I do is not have a drink.

History remembers those who are talented AND nice , like Ghengis Khan for example 

Wrong Khan. Ghengis was a mongrel Mongol. I think the Khan who can be linked to "nice" was Kubla, with his "stately pleasure-dome".

(From my favourite poem of all time, which, perhaps ironically given some of the content of this thread, was written following an "opium-influence dream".)

Wish I hadn't watched that.  That is not good at all.

Hope the kid recognises that he needs to change and he gets the help he need.

Nb: Mental health issues dont occur in a vacuum and have vast causes and manifestations.  Making assumptions about individuals is fraught.

Mental health is a real thing but I’m genuinely concerned AFL clubs are using it as an excuse to protect players who get done for testing positive. Anyone remember buddy and the ‘rumours’ doings the rounds a few years back? As recently as this week we all heard about the shame that is the AFL drugs policy. Mental health is serious and effects so many of our friends and family and it’s such a shame that there’s now a cloud of doubt around AFL players now.

Horrible video. Even when you throw out the garbage LH the stench of bin juice remains. How can publishing this be helpful in any way?

I hope he’s now surrounded by people that really care about him, it’s been open slather since he joined Freo. To some a snap on a phone seems more important than the well being of a person. Sad times and it won’t change any time soon unfortunately.

That was sad to see. Clearly this is very different to 'smokegate'.

I can't comment with 100% accuracy with Jesse as I don't know him personally. However, young men tend to 'self medicate' when suffering from anxiety. It becomes a vicious circle when they sober up and feel like the bottom of a shoe that has stepped in some gum (complete with hangover).

I don't condemn drinking in the slightest (although I have gone teetotal myself recently). People should be able to make their own decisions and enjoy themselves in whatever way they want; should it be legal and/or not doing excessive harm to themselves or others. However, if Jess is suffering from anxiety, the vacuous and dismissive Aussie bloke suggestion of 'hitting the pizz to unwind' is the motherlode of bad ideas.

Not all are suited to the roles they find themselves in.

I really don't think AFL is his best home.

The lad needs professional help.. and a new focus in life.

Exactly. I heard a rumour his Mum didn't want him to come back to Perth due to his mates. Not sure how truthful that is but his partying has seemed to escalate since he got back.

I've seen all the videos you're talking about.... alcohol consumption doesn't seem to be the main problem.

As i mentioned couple of posts back, being back in perth will just make things worse for him. His mates are absolute ratbags and a bit shady also.

I am not surprised his mum didn't want him back...

100% - some turn to alcohol to diminish the uncomfortable feelings that anxiety brings up, and some get caught in the trap to think that this is the only way to deal with them. Hence, I understand when Peter Bell says Jesse’s anxiety problem can lead him to making poor choices on alcohol consumption.

I hope that Jesse can find the right way to manage his anxiety without the use of alcohol.

And to drill a bit deeper, I wonder if it's also a story, within those clubs, of two coaches? One who has recruited Andrew Lovett, Harley Bennell and Jesse Hogan. And one who hasn't.

The Paris Hogan soap opera is going to get worse with him playing and living in Perth. The airbrush treatment does not work so well over there. Hogan’s current demons are blasted all over the front page of The West Australian this morning. Has bumped off all the usual suspects and outrages like bimbos and terrorism etc to lesser pages and columns.

7 hours ago, don't make me angry said:

I see, people  are connecting hogans trading to his mental health  as a reason, just think about that, your saying that anybody in the team that has mental health conditions are on the trading block. And many think like that in the media and say the same things. No wonder men between the age of 25  to 40 have a high  suicide rates.  these views give people with mental health issues a complex and low self-esteem, it makes them think that people think that they are undesirable to be at their club or be mates with.

 

Firstly, I said ''I won't try and second guess Hogan's issues''.  I made no reference to mental health or the reasons we traded Hogan.  I merely said have faith that Goodwin makes the right decisions for the MFC.  So the assumptions you've made about my post are incorrect.  Not new for you.

Now let me add this...

I'll hypothesize, but not in regards to Hogan.  Let's say a player at the MFC (not Hogan) had mental health issues.  And let's say he was causing the club off-field grief and had for some time.  In the club's view this player could be traded for his and the club's benefit.  I FULLY support trading that individual.  My concern is for the club and its ongoing search for success.  I'm far more interested in what is right for the club over an individual and I'll support the club's decision.

Now, at the risk of hurting your safe space, I'll further add that I reserve my ''feelings'' for friends and family.  I'm not overly perturbed by the issues confronting someone I've never met and don't know, other than I hope they recover from anything that ails them, as I would any member of society.

    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

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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

    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.

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up.
