Trac letting Darcy know that next year he’ll be Freo’s number 2 Ruckman to a guy who has more flags than the entire Freo list combined. 

Interesting that Darcy didn’t want any part of the aggro against him, after the back tap on Tracc.

Noticed that! 

Players would know Trac is one of the fairest players going around, who rarely wastes his energy agitating. 

It was almost like Darcy had conceded “yeah I probably shouldn’t have done that”

Trac is also an absolute beast. i wouldn't be surprised if despite his size. Darcy was a little bit intimidated.

Disappointing if he is just running after the money. I guess it's of course his choice.

Based on last night's performance Freo are really far off being a contender.

How good was it seeing Melksham pull that jumper down last night? Arrogant supporters acting like it’s a done deal.

If he has to go I hope he goes to the Eagles now, and plays a blinder in every Derby.

Why is everyone slamming this? Waving a Freo jumper with Jackson no.6. Its clearly fake so what did they expect?

You do know where his family and mates live, don’t you? 

I never buy the narrative of 'homesick', FFS we live in 2022 not 1970. You are just a 3 hour flight from home. Not saying it is not a contributing factor but most definitely the money weighs more into the decision.

The accepted view seems to be that he would stay a couple of years if no deal can be done. It is an opportunity for him to go home and play for the club he barracked for.

IMO we have been pragmatic and started looking at what we can get out of it, rather than keep him for a couple of years and go through all of this again for another year.

We can really  plug some list holes if we are smart.

Didn't he barrack for the Weagles? I thought his idol was Nic Nat

That's just complete guesswork otherwise why use qualifiers like "at a minimum..." and "plus" twice.

You're a clown, Jay. At least stick to the fee of 850k or the term of six years.

Jay Clark clearly doesn't realise that, if you do a backflip, you end up exactly where you started from.

In other words, your position has not changed.

If you're reading this Jay, don't feel too bad.  It's a very common mistake among "journalists".

For better or worse loyalty is not a thing to the kids coming through these days. They grow up watching NBA & NFL where players, the champions too, regularly change sides. 

The difference being that in the NFL or NBA top draft picks usually play at the very least 5 or 6 years with the teams that picks them.

I suppose when Ron went to Carlton he wasnt actually a kid.

Will be really interesting to see how Jackson goes at Freo next year when he doesn’t have Gawn mentoring him. Jackson is still learning the craft and this is a massive thing in my eyes where u learn from the best. 

Our team is far superior to Freo and with Jackson going on big money (by all reports) will come with massive pressure to perform. He will be the no1 ruck i assume where as he is no2 now  so less pressure  

Good luck with feral Freo supporters Jacko.

These days? This has been going on well past this generation. Let's not make out that it's today's issue. For every Luke Jackson there's a Clayton Oliver, Petracca and Brayshaw who've pledge their loyalty to this club. Not counting other players from other clubs who've done the same.

Jeff White, Ron Barrasi, Tony Lockett, Kelvin Templeton, Jeff Farmer, Gerard Healy.. I can keep going?

Peter Bell never learns. I sent him an email about the Fremantle acquisition of Hogan and he replied that they thought they had a really good player. They got next to nothing out of Hogan despite him growing up a Freo fan. Doesn’t the Jackson situation look kind of similar?

    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

    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

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
