Farewell Luke Jackson

Recommended Posts

At least its no shock - we expected it. Even better it will be a shoot out between WCE and Freo. The WCE pick 2 which will be pick 3 after the Lions F/S look enticing. Gives us a go at Cadman which with JvR and Fritter will set up the future of our Forward line.

With the extra pick on top of the WCE PICK 2 we can recruit or trade for a decent back up to Gawney.

Here's an idea, maybe he's waiting til he's actually traded before making a statement about being traded? Just a thought. Continue ranting about his family though with no factual basis...

Give it a rest will you. You are NOT the moral compass of my life

Here’s an idea

Stop telling everyone how to think or react..

Mrs. Jackson is in charge there is no doubt…

Just wait for that peanut Hutchy to start banging on again about WC walking Jackson through to the preseason draft so they can pick him up for nothing 🤬

Hutchy is a bloated bald frog. There's more chance of a princess kissing him and him turning into a human prince than there is of Jackson walking out via the preseason draft.

I must be the only person on here that isn't that fussed with Jackson leaving, especially now that both WA clubs are in play for his services. The down side is we look like blowing salary cap and draft capital on Grundy.

If you ask any neutral supporter, they fail to see the hype on Jackson. He's in his 3rd year, and I doubt that he finishes top 12 in the BnF. He struggles to take a contested mark, and hasn't shown any forward craft. His strength is his ability at ground level for a tall, but that's why you have midfielders. And he could develop into an exceptional tap ruckman. But a ruckman who can't take contested marks around the ground like Max, aren't worth big dollars.

As for his decision for returning home, I fully understand it from what I was told. I'm sure some of the Perth media know the reasons, but due to their personal nature, I doubt that they'll come out.

To add to your point about the fish bowl he is about to jump into, Jackson is going to have to make one of the longest internal national flights in the world every second week ie Perth to the east coast.

Five hour round trip in a plane would be hard core for a player his size. I remember hearing pavlich say that was the toughest part of his career (amazing he played 300 plus games).

 

It's a 7 hour round trip Melbourne, 9 hours Brisbane   8.5 hours Sydney.

Plus all the waiting around, getting to airports and back etc.

I'm predicting ...

Jackson will end up at Freo for their 2022 and 2023 1sts and some net-zero-value garnishing.

We'll then trade one of our 2 2023 1sts to Collingwood for Brodie Grundy.

Well if you are right, we are getting screwed on both trades IMO.

Lots of compelling reasons to stay, listed here. 
 

I guess though, when you weigh them up against some PlayStation 5 with your homies in a Cottesloe McMansion, they’re just not compelling enough. 

We forget that young footballers like Jackson are overgrown kids but with immature minds. Families and mates are important to them. Full independence is often delayed. And let’s face it, Perth is a very desirable place to live and it’s small town mentality has attractions over a traffic ridden urban night mare that is Melbourne. I don’t see that the burdensome commute from the inner suburbs to Casey as an attraction.

Not sure how that is relevant here. There are a lot of fiercely independent people who cut the apron strings, well below that age. 

I agree. I do wonder about the "go home" players.  It really shows a real lack of maturity and restricts one's need to become an independent adult as a natural progression. It's not like he's joined one of the services at 18 (like many do) and is now serving overseas for 6/12 months with little of no contact (Its better than it used to be).     What happened to young people trying to get away from their family to build their own lives.  (This is not a direct critique of Jackson, but a general view of all those players claiming home sickness).

Unfortunately we supporters don't get a say. And the reality is that no uncontracted player has ever been traded for a top 5 pick and gun young player who wasn't named Chris Judd.

If WC's pick 2 (3) isn't the centrepiece of the deal, it will likely be Freo's 2 first round picks (2022 & 23) and steak knives.

I'd rather pick 2.

 

You didn't see a bit of humor in my post hey, oh well. If it hasn't happened before doesn't mean it won't happen now.

Very sorry to see LJ go - I think he will be an absolute champion of the game - some may not agree but he is a unique talent

I hope its the right decision for him and I just don't believe its about the dollars. However, I can see some tough times ahead for him if his performances don't live up to the lofty expectations of whichever supporter base he plays for next

I just hope we get fairly compensated and use that compensation wisely - we have seen this season that each year we must improve our list to remain competitive - as it stands right now we are at least one big step backward - I really hope that when the dust settles we all feel like we have made a decent leap forward

Does anyone have two picks in the top 20 they would trade us for pick 2 that is fair and equitable?

GWS will.

GCS will after the Rankine trade:  Adelaide's first and their own:  #5 and # 7.  However, there is some noise that Crows don't want to deal #5 so playing hard ball as they did with the Swans for Dawson and Swans had to accept what at the time appeared to be 'unders'. 

So GCS's two top 10 picks are better than GWS's bundle of first rounds, while they have #3 are are unlikely to include another top 10 pick.

    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.
