Farewell Jesse Hogan

Recommended Posts

I remember that Jesse was a big skateboarder back in the day and that a lot of his 'mates' were of that ilk. 

It seemed at the time that the club was doing the right thing by Jesse in regards to his welfare. It may turn out to be the worst thing if he continues down this path.

I don't think Hogan will see out his contract with Freo.  Whether that is because his issues force him to step away from the game, or because he asks to be traded back to us or at least out of the state, it all adds up to the fact that going back home was a mistake.

What? People are considering Hogan be traded back to us??? Are you people mad. Both sides have made their decisions. Let us dry our eyes and get over it. Much bigger fish to fry.

I seriously don't think he'll go far at all WB. 

I have a suspicion hell not only not see out his current Freo adventure but he'll end up out of AFL very early.

Methinks you are writing him off a bit early.  And can't imagine any club trading for him after the trashing of his issues that Freo have done.

Notable cases of high end players with mental health issues:  Buddy (missed a finals series), Tom Boyd (played 23 games in past 2 years and not selected to play this week), Dusty (self confessed issues in The Age last week and who had a dedicated minder virtually full time in his early years).

But they are at clubs who are reasonably good to very good at keeping things in house and putting support around their players.  This cannot be said about Freo.  If Hogan bombs out it will have more to with Freo's incompetence than it will Jesse.  That will be a very sad day.

Apologies, not trying build suspense, more so just massive hours at work and last nights game put me to sleep. A lot of people wouldn’t agree with his stance,  he didn’t miss Hogan at all. 

- Asked for someone to explain to him how someone can just drink/use drugs to excess than hide behind the guise of mental health.

- Why is it that when this happens the club releases a statement to the effect of “we need to get around this player and care for him” rather that telling the player that he stuffed up and made the wrong decisions.

- No accountability from anymore. 

There was more but that was the gist, obviously he did mention that anxiety wasn’t an issue when he was playing. 

I heard it on Sports Tonight on Wednesday, they were replaying an interview between Blight and I think Wheatley.

I know many won’t agree but I did with a lot of what he said.

You may be right, LH.  But the signs aren't flash.  This sort of stuff hasn't been going on just since he returned to Perth.  As we've seen with the video (which was rubbish stuff from the Age), he's been up to a bit of 'hijinx' for quite a while now.  It seems as though it's been heightened since he has returned to Perth.  I'd love him to get over all of this, but it may take stepping away from the game to do it.

I'm not really suggesting it, Moonie.  It's more a hypothetical and based on how much he loved being at the club and how much the club is still willing to support him.  Nothing more than that.

Why is the West worse than the East ?   In off-field footy terms ?

Cowboys inhabited the wild west. What do you think?

Wise, a "hypothetical" is much the same as "considering", which is what I wrote.

I'm not sure the club wanted to support Hogan any further. If the numerous reports circulating are true, our club was instrumental in moving him on and not unhappy with the so-called 'unders' we got in the trade, ie, one 1st rounder.

I hope he gets back on track, as any normal human would hope. Mental health and addiction are big issues in society. But I do not know him or his family, so forgive me if i care little, particularly of his thoughts on our club. We would benefit from being more foccussed on the MFC moving on. I'm pleased that another club must deal with Hogan's issues and congratulate Mahoney and co who orchestrated the trade.

I'm probably in the minority of maybe...one.. here

If Hogan bombs out it will pretty much be on his own shoulders..

Trying to be respectful to Hogan and Croad here, I think you will find their 'issues' are very different.

 

I know both well enough to say their issues are / were near identical.

" Medical professionals have exposed Fremantle as having made up Jesse Hogan's diagnosis"

Apparently Clinical Anxiety is not a diagnostic category these days...

And the story goes on.

Yes Hogan has problems.

Ah he's recovered from his "clinical anxiety"..that was fast. Its not a term that existed pre Jesse so it must be a short lived condition musnt it? He recovered so fast one could almost think it was just a club suspension...which it wasnt . Was it?

Hogan himself. As part of the trade, we get 50% of his goals this year, 25% next year and 10% in the third year.

    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

    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

    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.

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini
