Plays for Fremantle now so I don’t care all that much, injuries are a part of professional sport. At least he’s still getting paid 

Yep they are on a solid financial wicket.

Most of them still love playing the game and are passionate about the game. 

Not being able to play at such an elite level would be very disappointing though. I missed a lot of low level footy when young due to knee issues and it was depressing enough without any money. Did you ever play? Did you miss it for any reason?

Add the fact that he's probably rightly concerned about the future of his career given his injuries and I would argue that the financial compensation is not that much of a help.

I get that he's moved on but JH has gone...is going through a lot. His dad passed away as well as having to fight cancer.

 

I'd argue that from your post you dont really care at all. That's all well and good. You are  entitled to your lack of empathy but I dont understand why you want to share it.

Who benefits from your dont really care post and why the motivation to not care but care enough to tell us .I know you are a passionate supporter of this great club and I enjoy your humor quite a lot but your cynicism not so much.

Perhaps you forgot about his other struggles in which case I apologize.  But I for one feel very sorry for the poor kid.

Good luck Jesse.

Get well soon and TX for the memories.

Look forward to seeing you play some great footy again  You served the Mfc well.

Not at any decent level but trained hard to join defence, at 25 I injured by back pretty bad on deployment and couldn’t do what I was doing anymore. A decade later it’s still buggered and having another round of major surgery in a couple of months. Pretty rough not being able to do what you trained hard for and loved. I could probably be more empathetic I suppose.

Whatever way you look at it it's sad. I hope he's able to get his body right and play some good footy in the future. Right now I'd say the trade is sitting at a 0-0 draw given May's injury troubles.

Always liked Jesse, but I don't think he was ever going to be the great white hope we all wanted. 

 

But he is Freo's problem now.

Feeling sad for Hoges. A great talented individual who just hasn't quite reach his potential due to injury unfortunately.

I'd love to see Hogan have a good run at it in 2020 and show what he's capable of. He's been through an awful lot as a young man, and it is clear he is popular with our list and coaches and alot of mutual respect when he left to join Freo. I think has handled himself pretty well and I would genuinely be happy if he plays well and kicks a bag against us. There are more important things in life than footy.

Yep, that said, you could also argue the trading of Jesse could have given us King instead of May. If May can put together 22 games in 2020, we might be level.

As a supporter Jessie disappointed me with his attitude, in which i probably saw a lot of myself, with all sports and work ethics. But i would be negligent if, having seen what does happen in life, without favour, i cannot feel sorry for a sooky money waster if that is what he is......and i do not want people to feel sorry for me because i never had a father............

Thanks for sharing Willmoy. 

My thoughts on the bolded bits about Jesse (or anyone) is I think the point that some folk are saying, is that they understand that the death of a loved on is/can be disruptive. It's exclusive to the conversation about how much he earns (or has nothing to do with it).

In the end, it's Jesse's choice,  sometimes mortality hastens peeople to fall into line to get the best out of their situations, othertimes with the exact same experience, people go '[censored] it'

I totally agree, I think the media is always looking for the feel good story to come to fruition, where he plays the best footy ever in tribute to his father and looks up at the sky when he kicks the match winning goal.

Obviously people are masters of their own destiny but it's hard to argue that his personal development from the age of 17 was disruptive, unusual, and emotionally difficult. As for the money side of things my understanding is that he's on slightly less that what he potentially stood to earn at Melbourne. When we traded him out I think the club saw the writing on the walls that his injury troubles were going to continue and that what was best for both club and player was to get him home. He's now Freo's problem but I still wish him well.

Sensationalist headline writing, he was taken to hospital only as a precaution and has been given the day off from the club. I hope he’s all good and that there’s nothing more to this, it’d be nice if we could see him get a crack at fulfilling his potential.

Sounds a bit more serious than that. Hopefully he was sober

 

 

Fremantle star Jesse Hogan has been released from hospital after flipping his car in Perth’s south.

It’s understood the 24-year-old’s white BMW collided with a car parked in front of a retirement village along Waddell Road in Bicton.

A nearby resident said she saw Hogan climb out of the damaged SUV, which flipped onto its side on impact.

Gotta watch those parked cars, they're deceptively still.

Yep. Could well be right. An SUV can tip easily if hit in the right spot. Would have to be going at a fair speed though. 
Very lucky boy....

    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

    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. That should never have happ
