Farewell Luke Jackson


Lucifers Hero

Recommended Posts

Saw Mac Andrew is debuting for GC this week. It still pisses me off that we got robbed of our academy player cause the AFL decided to change the rules the one year we finally had a decent prospect... after years of other clubs reaping the rewards.

There’s a whole other thread about this.

Probably worked out for the best, we picked up JvR and Howes, when otherwise would have had to use the point to match GC early bid. This year has many more talls in the top 30, so if Luke Jackson can get us 2-3 picks in that range we might be better off hunting for a long term replacement this year than last.

God i hope he stays. 

Just see him as someone who is ready to absolutely explode as a player and could really make a huge difference in our push for multiple premierships!

But would you be happy if he stays for 2 years and it all starts again?

If he signed a long term contract I would be very happy.

If he is likely to want to go in say 2 years, I would try and do a deal now.

I still think we could solve key forward and ruck issues for a good trade.

A Freo key forward and ruck and a top key forward in the draft, could all be doable.

I think we're more likely to win a premiership with Luke Jackson in the team than we are with the likely compensation we'd get for him, and it's 2 more years of him settling into melbourne. 

I think the club would have plans ready if he left after the 2 years as well so 

I'm not too sure who the dockers have as a key forward that would give us the immediate help we need down there?

Relevant to Jackson as if he leaves Andrew would have become our second ruck with a similar athletic profile to Luke - and now the ruck stocks might be extremely thin unless we get a B grade backup this trade period.

Oh sure, just thought you’d be interested if you’d missed it.

Well for example Treacy, Meek and the pick to get Cadman would be reasonable. 2 big Victorian forwards and a ruck.

If Jacko did sign on for 2 years, it would at least give us 2 years to find and blood a replacement and it would give Freo 2 years to come up with suitable trades and/or picks. 

And we can make a gentleman’s agreement between all parties to get it done within that time frame. I hope LJ is considering that as a viable option as well if things don’t work out this trade period.

You gotta think it can't be good for team morale and cohesion when your playing 3 guys who know they are getting shopped around to potentially land a kid. 

Amazes me the media aren't making more of that. I'd be livid if I was playing for them - there's no internal player backing from the coaches/footy department.

Andy Brayshaw 4 Jackson would be a fair straight swap the kids a Jet. No draft picks needed......I know its not going to happen but that would be fair. 

We’d have to throw in a first rounder. Andrew Brayshaw is a far better player than Jackson at this stage and is still only 22 himself.

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
