Farewell Luke Jackson


Lucifers Hero

Recommended Posts

It’ll be 13 and their future first. Can’t see how freo trade into the top 10. 
if we end up with Grundy, 13 and a f1 in exchange for Jackson and 2 round pick I think on balance that’s an ok outcome.

In terms of freo and Peter bellend I’ll be joyfully death riding freo first rounder. I can’t think of anything more satisfying that watching them tank next year. I won’t be surprised if they miss finals and we end up with a top 10 pick anyways.

I'd be heavily pushing for Norf's 2023 2nd rounder (probably pick 19?) to be included

Freo are douchebags. This is eerily similar to what happened with Hogan in 2018. We wanted two early first rounders, Freo wouldn't budge. We ended up accepting "unders" of pick 6 (May) and 23 (Sparrow). May alone helped get us a flag and Sparrow looks like he'll be a 150 gamer. Freo got two dud years out of Hogan then offloaded him to GWS for a fourth rounder - and now he's rediscovering his best form again with the Giants. Hope the karma bus hits them again. Would be great if they tanked it next year and that future first became a top 5 pick.

I’m so over Freo being twats about this, they know they are getting a future superstar, possibly 200+ game legend but what they are putting up is saying “meh he’s alright”. Pull you’re F-ing fingers out and do a proper deal that’s befitting the deal they have put in front of LJ. 

I know this is irrational but I’m at a point where I’d rather him go to WC for nothing than end up at Freo with them being such fI0gs about it. 

Offer up next years 2nd rounder and I’ll take the deal, I wish (I would hope) we did some research on their list to try to find players that we could poach for this deal to happen. Is there no Melbourne born players on their list that we could get them to hand over as a deal finaliser?

Honestly, Freo can GAGF. They've been courting Luke for ages, and now just expect us to accept unders. Get stuffed

Luke just has to threaten to resign with MFC. The fact that he is mingling with the Freo players already is just unprofessional.

He should have stayed here until the deal was signed and be seen getting photographed with documents in hand leaving MFC HQ.

The guy is a peanut and despite his best intention is just as responsible for contributing to this colossal f up of a situation. 

Hope Viney runs straight through him at the centre bounce.

We could've held Hogan to his contract though so it's different. There was an element of us wanting to get rid of him.

In all honesty what leverage do we have? Hope Peter Bellend does the right the thing and pays fair compensation? Good luck with that

That's the thing. We've got nothing to stand on here. WC haven't put up an offer to us, they haven't even convined LJ to join them. 

If this trade gets done it's going to be us who cave, because we're not going to let him walk to the PSD for nothing. 

Everyone knew he wanted to go home last year. He should have requested his trade then right after his grand final performance where his value was at its highest. Fremanlte had pick 6, 8, and 19 last year.

Honestly, I'd be comfortable with slightly 'unders' compared to what many people are anticipating.

2022 and 2023 first round draft picks, some salary cap offload which will help a lot in future, and a good mood all round.

Fremantly will give him a fairly long contract on big money at the end of which he'll ask to be traded back to us in 5 or 6 year's time when Gawn retires.

It’s a fair point, again you can only hope that the club spoke with him to see what he was thinking. Now let’s keep in mind this is a very young man still working out who he is but if he had an inkling that he would want to go home it seems massive own goal on our end not to push the deal then and there. 

I don’t any Melbourne fans would’ve begrudged it as well as we still would’ve been riding the premiership highs.

Jacko would have said very little to us directly. The agents are the mouthpieces so as to deliberately obfuscate true intentions

Honestly it's not as simple as looking the bloke in the eye - it's all very guarded

Him only signing 1 year after his initial contract was a red flag. Almost all draftees sign 2.

    PICKET FENCE'S TRAINING REPORT REHAB  Clarry, Max, Farris-White, Melky, Matt Jefferson, Jakey Lever, Joel Smith & 1 Other I couldn't place. Glad to see the Club being ultra cautious with Clarry's thumb BUT the fact he is still troubled with it is worrying (God I hate Selwood) Got there at 10.50 to see Full match Simulation Game between the Blues and the Whites. Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.
