Farewell Jesse Hogan


wizardinoz

Recommended Posts

I get that isolation has been hard on all of us, but Christ, this will never happen in a million years. Imagine Freo trying to sell it to their members:

"Look guys, we know Hogan cost us pick 6 and a shot at drafting Ben King, but he's served us extremely well for the 12 games he played and we are happy to respect his wishes to return to the Demons. Given that his trade value has plummeted, we think Spargo and a 3rd round pick is more than a fair return."

cancel my profile i want out 

ummmm this post just fuels the doubt people have on your info. You post one message, saying Hogan wants to come back, that your source is Connolly, then people start asking questions then you want to smoke bomb it straight out of here. This has troll written all over it.

Everyone knows you can just cancel it yourself.

The leopard doesn't change its spots. When he was with us, away from his bad WA influences, he often showed disinterest and went sooking to the umps.

That's what we'll get if he comes back.

Huge talent, likely to be unfulfilled no matter the club. Maybe AFL-level football isn't for him.

Really happy for him, like Bennell he could be someone that actually benefits from this lockdown.

loved watching him when he was with us, sometimes with my own despair as to his performance, but cheered him anyway.

As long as he is not starring, or Freo winning against the Dees I will cheer him on still.

The old adage if a tree falls in the forest.. if Hogan kicks a bag in a non demon game, will there be any dee fan around to see it? I know I did not schedule any freo games into my spare time last year or will this year, so how can I cheer him on?!

Tbh I would love to cheer him on to kick 8 against us, just to witness some decent intuitive forward craft, wrestling a defender out of the contest and taking a 1 hander. thats the kind of [censored] I can enjoy...but at the end of the day, we still get up by a point over there. Best of both worlds!

No, not digging this up to bemoan the loss of Jesse in typical fashion.

Just passing on that:

Longmuir said that Hogan will play as a defender against Carlton.

Must watch TV for me, given it was said by many that they'd like to see him tried in defense, if the Freo trade fell through and Steven May did not come. Also said when he was having a run of poor form or was sooking at teammates too often throughout his career with us.

I saw this today, interesting thought. I often considered it to be an idea when he didn't seem to be working hard enough, but he was just so damn talented as a forward that he was always just ready to break a game open. Could be a good move for reintroducing him to league footy as well.

That said if it were us I could picture every other fan saying that we're tanking.

Longmuir said that Hogans to the backline is just temporary for the rest of the season as they have lost two key defenders.

Is there any chance Jesse would return to the MFC at seasons end or is it a pipe dream?

Imagine him slotting in next to the new and improved Weid.

Even if WA has gone a bit neurotic asking people to quarantine when they have been isolated for months AND constantly tested AND only been in low-risk states... Hogan still is accountable.

Just glad the matter itself seems very minor. It ought to be handled as any other breach, and that actually seems to be how it is going.

Be funny if the restrictions are lifted a bit for new arrivals the next couple of days but Hogan still has to spend another week+ getting cabin fever.

    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

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
