😡😡😡

This is the ridiculous small town scrutiny that Luke will be exposed to if he decided to leave particularly if it involves a mega deal - no idea why anyone would want to carry that gorilla around on your back

Of course players take time to reach peak fitness, but that doesn't mean they can't contribute from year 1.

 GOOD..........Jackson will see this Perth newspaper spread of him walking through the airport. He will realise this a red light warning of what he can expect if he signs with Freo or WC. Every game he plays will be under scrutiny.

He'll be photographed in restaurants and pubs.  A living hell.

Still confident LJ stays with dees.

Cringe WA newspaper thing .....

That's genuinely funny. Everything about it is so incredibly embarrassing.

All the other articles on the page actually make the whole thing even better .... WAFL oval conditions, Rory Lobb yawning, 1 year extension for peripheral veteran ..... and even managed to get their contractually obliged mention of Naitanui into the paper. Chef's kiss. 😘

I find this legit funny the 'Boo Ban' and the fact they use a photo of Gus

I hope the “Boo Ban” is enforced and abided by. Moreover, I hope they applaud and cheer for Dogga. 

Then 9am Monday morning he signs with us. 

😁

I kind of hope Jesse Hogan reaches out to him and tells him how hard it is. Not because I want Jackson to stay (although I do) but because of how it hampered Hogans development and his career - you dont want to see a unique talent like Jackson squashed because of the media in an two team footy state, or because of jerks just wanting their 5mins of fame.

Not knowing the kid, he may actually relish the spotlight and adoration.

Will be interesting to see how he performs tonight as he's been no better than "good" over the past few weeks.

Turn it on Jacko. We need a huge game from you tonight.

Kane Cornes writing in the Western Australian believes Freo are taking a huge gamble on Jackson. He believes the deal is done but questions his value as he is only a ruckman and not much of a forward in his opinion.

13 hours ago, whatwhat say what said:

my guess? because sean darcy comes out as contract as a free agent as a 24 year old in two years time

geelong will come HARD for him

Good point.  Solid insurance against that scenario?

Full of waffle but suggests we want one draft pick in the single digits.

What is it that the media don't get. We paid draft pick 3 three years ago and he's now better

😡😡😡

I actually like this. Gives him a taste of what is to come if/when he joins Freo. He may salivate at the prospect of being in the limelight all the time, but all indications thus far is that he probably doesn't.

If he does go to Freo on the big coin that has been reported and has a year like he has this year, I would expect some journo's to start the questioning on whether it was the right move for Freo. I suppose it can also play out the 'otherway'.

Can you imagine how awkward that photo would be for LJ today? It’s hard to imagine any scenario where he’s actually happy to see something like that in the paper, and extremely likely he’s quite p’d off by it.

Its a big game for Luke tonight, given the situation he's set up re-his contract negotiations and the rumours of Freo being in the box seat should he leave.

A big game by Luke tonight will ensure Freo cough up whats required to get him (i.e. a pick 3+), a poor game and that cough up will become a bit harder for the powers that be at Freo to justify.

Melbourne will win or lose tonight, irrespective of Lukes form, but due to our ability to recapture our team first footy. Luke having a blinder will be the icing.

Go Demons

Are we hoping he plays a blinder and helps us win or has a stinker which gives Freo cold feet? 

Us winning is all that matters.

PS: Without any injuries of course.

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
