If ends up at Richmond will be the biggest kick in the guts for mfc supporters also a mockery of the equalisation if the afl that a triple premiership team can get 2 gun forwards after a wining a flag .. will consider walking away from the afl 

This one is a bit different. There is something clearly NQR with Hogan, sure if he gets to the tigers turns his life around and lives up to his potential it will hurt. But he certainly isn't moving at the top of his game and he hasn't got too many teams lining up for him.

Freo virtually trying to give him away says it all.  Had his chances and blew them all away. It would be a very brave AFL list manager that takes him on. Massive risk.

Sad and disappointing.  Yes, some personal issues over which he had no control but has made some bad choices subsequently.

It would be so typical wouldn’t it, nurture & support him for 5 or 6 years & he ends up as a CHF in a premiership team 

A player 2 clubs haven’t been able to get the best out of, 25yrs old and didn’t show a huge amount this season. Sure he’ll win 3 flags before he’s done.

He was ready to play a long time before he got a game this year.  I read a report saying Freo didn't play him so that he would not reach the trigger points in 2021 to extend his contract on bigger $ into 2022 and beyond.

Once they changed coaches Longmuir didn't have the same ownership of the Jesse decision that Lyon had.  Maybe as a young coach he isn't in a position to put in the time and energy needed to get the best from Jesse. 

Maybe at the 'right' club he can deliver more than he has in recent years.  Richmond or Sydney could be that club.

There would be something difficult to swallow about him going to Richmond, it may be because I feel his breakout game came against the tigers in the ANZAC eve match where he beat Rance. 

I also feel that with Richmond they’d have a free hit with him, not dissimilar to Bennell with us which until the fine at end of the year cost us nothing. They have Lynch and Reiwoldt so they aren’t desperate for it to happen.

I want him to rebuild his life wherever that may be, if Richmond can do that, as much as it would suck for us Dees fans, I’d be happy for him.

Look how Williams turned Dusty around....could be the culture works!

The Dockers obviously think he is surplus to needs. Not a good look 2 years after getting him from us, on the back of 5 years of begging and tempting him. 
 

at his best, Jesse is an absolute jet.  Should be commanding Jeremy Cameron Type interest.  Yet the bulldogs who need a forward are into Mason Cox instead? Rated behind dodgy hips Daniher? Must be something really stinky.

I do wish him good fortune, but he has gone backwards fast.

Sad the way his career played out. His first few years were brilliant for a young tall forward and he had potential to become an elite KPF of the competition. I feel for him, as he had to deal with some horrible stuff with his fathers death and then his own subsequent illness and fitness. It seems now he's well into the gear to the point where he might not be in the game beyond age 25. Very sad and another talented Melbourne player whose potential went unrealised.

Most people lose their father at some point.

I lost mine in my mid-20s and my career is going along great guns.

I wish we'd all stop making this excuse for him.

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 pressures from your job playing out publicly?
Did you have other health issues directly related to your job impeding you?
Did you have family pressures forcing you to relocate while experiencing health issues and trauma?

Jesse has made poor choices for sure, and his career will likely be cut short as a result. Your comments however are a bit misguided and insensitive.

THE LATEST ON JESSE HOGAN

Former Collingwood recruiter Matt Rendell believes troubled Fremantle forward Jesse Hogan is set for a big move east.
 
Rendell told Trade Radio he believed Hogan would end up at Greater Western Sydney in 2021.
 
"I believe it's a fait accompli. That's my strong mail," he said.
 
It would be Hogan's third club after stints with Melbourne and the Dockers.

He’s just not made of the right stuff to make it as an elite key forward. Lacks mental toughness. If he ever turns it around it’s a miracle.

Not true. having mental health issues doesn't mean someone lacks "Mental toughness" Jesse is incredibly tough and determined.

This is an incredibly hurtful position to take.

People deal with loss in different ways. People grieve in different ways.

If you managed to move on from your father's death and get to a point where your career is going well, hats off to you.

But the fact you were capable of that doesn't mean everyone else should be as well. 

A "just get over it" attitude like this is not helpful.

Of course, Hogan's off-field issues may or may not have been impacted by his Father's death or his brief cancer episode.  

They may be completely separate to each other.  Or they may not.  

In essence, all the club can do is make decisions on what his behaviour actually entails.  

Clearly, we've benefited from the decision to trade him and there's absolutely nothing to suggest he's improved his off-field behaviours.  It appears worse, although it's well-known Melbourne did a good job protecting the player and the club's image while he was here.

I'm only interested in the best interests of the club and they don't appear to be best served by revisiting the past with Hogan.  In fact, we've made our decision.

Hogan to GWS probably doesn't help a TMac trade, which according to reports could then facilitate both Brown and Isaac Smith coming to the Dees.

Maybe they have a plan to reassemble our 2018 forward line HW and sign both.

That's not true.

He's a different unit but so are buddy, dusty, Ablett and a host of others.

    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.
