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.

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.

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.

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....

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
