Jesse Hogan on the way out at Freo?



Recommended Posts

There is a reason why two clubs invested heavily in him and yet both clubs didn’t find him to be a good fit. He didn’t work at Melbourne. Time to move on.

Very risky, imagine Jesse and Buddy both driving to training... Potential carnage

Did you also get cancer yourself in the months after your father died from cancer? Did you have the media always watching and photographing your recreational activities?  Did you have other pressu

My ex-girlfriend is still super-hot but when she starts talking about crystals again I know I made the right decision.

I think Jesse carried himself like a champ at Melbourne! 

Kicked more goals than anyone in a long time.
2011    Liam Jurrah    40
2012    Mitch Clark    29
2013    Jeremy Howe    28
2014    Chris Dawes    20
2015    Jesse Hogan    44
2016    Jesse Hogan    41

2017    Jeff Garlett    42
2018    Tom McDonald    53
2019    Christian Petracca    22
2020    Bayley Fritsch    22

Just to be clear in 2017 his father died, he got nut cancer came back, busted his collarbone and then returned only 3 weeks later to kick 20 goals for the year, I know COVID was tough in QLD but Fritschy ain't looking much better, and I like the boy!

If anyone watched the home & away season in 2018 recently Jesse was a humongous part of it kicking 47 goals winning games off his own back, sometimes with his little mate Jeffy around his feet and don't @ about McDonald he's done... 😈

He would only come back to give his all, its simple as that, in my opinion.

Listen to everytime Goodwin has spoken about Jesse post dees, its always very postive.

Do we pull off the Trent Croad special?

I doubt it, but it would be great to see him in a Dees jumper again.

Interesting comparison. Jesse has a lot in common with Croad....if you know what I mean.

More chance he moves to Byron with Wattsy and does nothing than play for Melbourne

The fact he is 25 and should be in his prime..... I'd give him a 3 year deal that has clauses keeping him on the right track on and off field, providing he is over his major injuries and ready mentally. It could be beneficial for him to be around familiar faces.

I don't know or believe he was the cuase of culture disruptions at the club, We all know he delt with alot off field that would have derail anyone.

Hogan is reportedly on an amount in excess of $900k per year with a contract going till the end of 2021.

He's Freo's T Mac

Hard to make those numbers work for any suitor unless Freo stumps up around half.

Would Hogan move on a one year deal or would he want 2 or 3?

According to an article in today's HUN the big year is next year when it goes up and there are performance levels he had to achieve. Reading between the lines Freo want the dollars for others in 2021. Interesting times ahead

Bring him back.   Mick Malthouses best coaching trait was to get the best out of individuals -  those that weren’t overly professional but could play footy -  the rat pack.

I’d rather have Jesse getting into strife three times a year and kicking 50 goals than have ANB be uber professional, win the time trial but be unable to hit a target 25m away.  It doesn’t have to bring down the standards of the whole group if we’ll managed and coached.

Give the coaches a challenge and bring him back!!

My view had always been the opposite. I believed Malthouse couldn't get the best out of individuals which is why so many players left under his watch. I suspect the truth is somewhere in the middle. That is, Malthouse was able to get the best out of those individuals, but only those who could tolerate him and vice versa.

I'd be very happy to take him on a reasonably cheap contract. We know he can fit within our forwardline, and in theory we should be more capable of addressing any issues with him compared to other clubs. Just depends if there's any bad blood between Hogan and the club.

Phew for a minute there I thought you were talking about Gary Ablett Senior!!!😉

If we had Hogan, Weid, Jacko and Gawny in the same side, there would be very few teams who could contain us.

Hoges and Jacko can play as mids/forwards, Weid stays within 40m of goal and Gawny can rotate through the forward pocket.

Still don’t think it’s the way to go, but I could be talking myself into it.

 

I could talk myself into that scenario being the way to go, as well. We have plenty of rotatable smalls/mediums; we have few mobile and marking big guys - suits my psyche for several tandemed zone attack forwards rather than key position forwards.

Yes, we could sign him to a contract that makes him become somebody else, other than the person he actually is.

Isn't that true of most people who get hired?

Who doesn't love Jesse...but we are (trying to be) a football club not a fairytale club.  Damaged goods, buyer beware.

At the moment I dont believe we can AFFORD not to investigate getting ANYONE who can play. Other teams seem to be able to mange players with issues, and yeah I know the Harley thing ended in disaster, but I know Hogan can play. Simple as that.

Do we need another key forward YES. Can we go into season 2021 without another strong KPF ?? HELL NO 

Happy to lay the welcome mat out for him at this stage!

There's a massive difference between being able to play and wanting to play. Unfortunately for Jesse he just doesnt look to be that interested in a footy career anymore. Imagine coming back to the club that offloaded you to then have the enormous pressure of being the key forward that's going to save us piled back on you from the club, supporters and Vic Media. That's the last thing a person like that needs. I feel bad for the bloke, but not even moving back to his support network of family and friends has helped him or his football. His body just isnt durable. His head doesnt seem in it. We would be incredibly stupid to either think he will be all that we need to turn our forward fortunes around or that he can even get on the park.

    SOUNDS OF SILENCE by Whispering Jack

    This was my first game for points involving the Demons in more than a year and a half and the long march to Carrara turned out to be worthwhile. The game was won in a single withering quarter that was dominated by Melbourne on the back of an outstanding display from Karen Paxman. The four-time All Australian picked up 13 touches for the stanza to set up a five goal to nothing second term after a lacklustre start in which the cleaner, sharper Gold Coast notched up the first two goals of the game

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 1920 when it finally petered out in April of

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe
