I'd doubt that a mother would seriously interrupt a son's career forcing change that is not fully necessary.

As the father of a son around Luke's age and having watched any number of his friends have their chosen career paths derailed by their parents, I'd question that.

Don't be ridiculous mate, of course our footy department has been in continuous contact with both WC and Freo on any potential trade for Luke and they will be until the day he signs (somewhere).  The FD simply would not be doing their job if they were not. You don't win trades in October you win them in July.

Also I am not belting Jackson.  I love Dogga!  I am desperate for him to stay,  I think he will be the best player in the comp in future years.  I am just talking a matter of fact.

You haven't addressed either point. If Jackson nominates Freo, whatever WC have to offer becomes irrelevant, and is not a problem for Freo at all.

And of course you are belittling Jackson. You are saying that he's too immature to call his own shots. Like most big decisions in life that people make, Jackson is factoring in his family. That's not the same as your assertion that his mum wants him at Freo.

I've got nothing to do with this but I'll answer since I'm here.

GNF is trying to sell the line that a grown man - Luke Jackson is having his decisions made by his mommy. That implies that he has little or no will of his own and I think most people would find that is quite belittling.

No mate, I am just saying like many of us......... myself included at the age of 20yo my parents still had a massive influence on my decision making and career choices.  This is normal for a great percentage of 20yo boys.  It is not belittling, its just a matter of fact.

It is true that if he nominates Freo when Freo has no trade to satisfy us it would make a sticky situation.  No doubt Melb would threaten both Freo and Dogga for a trip to the draft and North Melbourne. 

The point is there are no winners in this sort of breakdown. I dont believe any of the parties want negotiations to go down this path and as such Luke is far more likely to accept a 2 year MFC deal than risk the draft.

I don't know of any my friends whose parents had an influence on their decision making at 20 years of age and I didn't ask my parents when I enlisted at the age of 17. I think it would be abnormal at the age of 20 if your parents had an influence on decision making, I am quite sure Luke is able to make the final decision himself.

I have little idea about trading, but surely a proven quality young player is worth a lot more than a couple of early picks given what a lottery drafting is. 

Fortunately we have Jason Taylor who makes the most of(almost) every pick, even lower ones.

The LJ budget space becomes the Grundy budget space I suppose.

Weid is a fair chance to be traded (if we find anyone interested), but his wage off the books won't make any difference at all, he'd be on very very little. Tommo still contracted and handy depth, won't be going anywhere. There may be other players who make way though. But if you think about who we've re-signed the last 2 years and who we have to sign the next 2, it makes sense we'd be mostly looking at the draft for now.

IMO if Tommo wanted to move on for greater opportunity, and the trade was favorable or at least neutral, we would let him go, especially if a big ruck/ forward was in the deal.

Tomlinson is on about $500k from memory. I think we'd let him go for free if a club would cover even 80% of that.

Weids has a year left on his contact but was put up for sale last year and there were no takers........ not even Collingwood. Melb decided to re-sign him than give him away for nothing.  He is unlikely to get any interest this year and thus likely to be on our list in 2023. Currently he has fallen behind JVR and unlikely to see senior footy again in 2022. 

Tomlinson will request a trade despite being in contract. A early 3rd rounder will do it.

Bedford out of contract and likely to request a trade due to high competition for his spot. 

Baker likely to be delisted

Mitch Brown a 50/50 delist or new contract, may be kept for depth on a one year contract.

Kade Chandler - contracted and no whispers of him requesting trade

Jake Melksham - was gone and had even secured a job in finance for 2023 but clearly now highly likely to get another season.

Fraser Rossman - likely to be delisted

Jayden Hunt - likely to re-sign but considering offers from other clubs.

Michael Hibbert - 50/50 retire or one more season

That's my mail.

If I told you, you would not believe me anyway.  Regardless clearly I cant tell you this. I would never be privy to this information again and I would destroy a good thing.  Its up to you if you want to believe me or not.  I will however, have a long list of abusive DLs I will be expecting an apology form in October.

Apology for what?

Stating the obvious that Jackson is going home when it's been well reported by other media outlets since May this year? Haha rightio mate..

Rubbish, I have been pretty much completely absent for at least 5 years. Just could not be bothered telling you my mail only to be abused. For some reason I have felt like taking on the DL abusive bullies this week.  I must be quiet at work!!!!

For the record saying who we are making a play for should never be read as we are getting.

In saying all of that if Jackson goes which is likely the Dees will almost certainly get Grundy.  We have made a huge play for him. But this you can read in the MSM and this does not mean its 100%.

    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

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
