Highly unlikely x 100. 
Anyway Freo would ask for Luke Jackson and the answer would be NO FU&))&N WAY 

Damaged goods now, he would be a 3rd or 4th rd pick.  Freo would be happy to see him go, I’d say. 
 

I’d have him back in a heartbeat.

Bad timing, if true. If lists are to be reduced to 40 and eventually 35 as has been suggested, clubs are going to reduce the number of players they put on the list who are deemed to be either risky or project players. Hogan would have to be considered to be a risk given his foot and mental health issues. I wish him well, but if he's going to make an AFL comeback, I think it will only be with his current club.

I’m not sure I agree with this, yes list sizes will shrink but having talent on your list will always be on the clubs radar.

don't take kindly to negativity

my source is Chris Connolly and  few others, need i say more.

 

wheels are in motion

I wonder when the media will read demonland again and report on fox that this is in motion as a possibility. 
 

If what u r saying is true bizzell and I generally give the benefit of the doubt to new posters unless proven otherwise, then Hogan would need to remove that big chip on his shoulder, adjust his attitude and chase and tackle like he has never before. Also stop throwing his arms in the air pleading for free kicks. 
 

Time will tell if u r on the money.

*why can't we have both Gif*

Agreed because Jackson can play many positions / roles and at the heat line down the ground, we'd have two highly mobile, marking-running-athletic-ball winners of note. We now have the smalls in support for the loose balls.

Connolly is a Demon, through and through; played tall, contributed tall, single-minded intent for the Club. If he is onboard with this, I'd believe it, very strongly.

Jesse.?

And lets take  'Offa',  Watts his face back,  at the same time.   Maybe we can call back Carol,  and Chips Frawley,  he's nearly cooked.

I can only think of one player who left us and came back again. That's Carl Ditterich (who may be unique in the VFL/AFL having done that with two clubs). Have there been any others who left and came back as players?

Edit: Did Gary Hardeman do that or did he play with a non-VFL side?

Really? That seems a little soft. In these trying times we all need to show a little more resilience. Seems you are running away a little early. If you have good info, stick by it and ride out those that question it. They are just trying to separate the wheat from the chaff. So long at at isn't abusive don't take it to heart.

Hope your info is correct. Would be great to have a fit and healthy Hogan back at the Demons!

Ignore the negative feedback, just part of the fun on Demonland (some posters vitriol is hilarious if you can view it the way that a lot of social media should be treated!)

Beg to differ. There is considerable doubt. The fact we went deep into September without him is proof. The oft repeated stats of his MFC performances against better teams is further proof 

This is all moot anyway, as the OP is trolling

Surely going deep into September means being competetive against any of the best 3 teams (WCE, Coll or Rich) in a prelim

All we did was beat Geelong and Hawthorn.

Yeah, they've been hack clubs for many years

No, but they've certainly not even been close to being grand final worthy teams since 2015 in the Hawks case and 2013 in Geelongs. Bit of a stretch to plan our future premiership attack on a forward line that defeated them both in 2018

 

Im beginning to think there may have been some truth in the Clarko quip about dancing fron the rooftops.

Hawthorn finished the HA season a game clear in 4th.

It was a very good win.

Yes, but i am only disputing that we went deep into September. Producing some kind of competitive performance verging on an epic tussle, win or lose, is surely a better criteria of depth than just making a prelim. Showing up in the 3rd week in more than just name.

Did The Roos go deep into September in 2014 and 2015? People scarcely will remember they were even there.

The more i see people whip out this 4 week block as our measuring stick, the more i am repelled and feel like the real foundational hard work came from winning 10-12 matches in the 3 seasons leading into it. You only have to look at 2019 to see how fast it can all crumble with the advent of improved teams league wide

Which brings us back to the question of Jesse and the work HE DID in that period from 2016-2018. Why are we so quick to devalue it? 

If he can return to that, how much is he worth to us in light of our current woes. Probably a lot more value than an inconsistent season from Gus again.

Didn't say that. You are putting words into my mouth unnecessarily. 

Those that think Hogan would take us deep into September are living in la-la land. His well discussed record against better teams says it all.

Wish him well, but he will remain an unfulfilled talent.

Freo can have Spargo and a bag of chips, welcome back Hoges. 

Why would anyone think that Freo (or any club for that matter) would be remotely interested in Spargo?

And a bag of chips? Wedges perhaps.

    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
