Farewell Luke Jackson


Lucifers Hero

Recommended Posts

To me we should get the best deal possible for Jacko, as much as I’d love him to stay if the kid really wants to get home what’s a 2 year extension going to do, he’ll be going as a 23yo better player.

As for Gus get the job done, draft pics are good but you sign up blokes like him

Hes part of the fabric of the the club

irreplaceable

I'm sure we'll be doing our due diligence on all players like Amiss and others that could potentially be part of a deal.

Have only had limited vision of Amiss but he seems like more of a leading/separation forward and not really a contested mark. We've got a few of those already but he could also be a decent long term prospect.

Probably a long shot given his age, injury and home town, but get the impression we'll be key forward shopping this offseason.

Totally agree he's likely a longer term prospect, but don't mind the idea of him in a combo with JVR down the track.

I'd say with Gus signing it is highly likely we have upped our offer a bit knowing my namesake is gone.

I reckon Lloyd Meek will be part of the deal to partner with Gawny, but we will probably also want a top 10 pick plus another pick late 1st early 2nd.

Imagine now the club releases the statement that LJ has signed a 2 year contract with the dees.

I could actually see it happening, not sold on anything yet. So many were giving up on Gus and look what happened.

This. There's a fair correlation between the Dogga is gone group to the we are rubbish group and the Gus is going group.

The same people complaining that the Gus contract was too long will complain that two years is not long enough.

If you recruit a player and he leaves after two contracts you can stomach it, but when they leave after one contract and you deliver them a premiership, it hard not feel hard done by.

i find it easier to stomach, as the ultimate has been achieved.

Second time he’s shared contract news on his IG story, he’s just done it with Gus and he did the same thing when Clarry re-signed.

Could mean nothing and Luke is certainly a different cat, but it does seem a little odd if he’s out the door.

Freo has one tall forward on its primary list under the age of 29 ..... Jye Amiss. Freo probably aren't going to trade that player away. 

If they are not going to trade a player then draft picks is what they have left. I would start at 2 first rounders.

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
