Seems to me there is a lot of conjecture over a player who is on the market with only potential as his sale point.Had a great 3rd qtr in the gf,since then not much to crow about.Who ever gets him is backing a long shot,big risk in my view

I agree.  For a player worth 2 first round picks should be a consistent match winner. He is a fine prospect but i suspect we will spend the next 8 years of his career reading about what his best position is.  I hope he thrives at Freo, but he isnt a generational ruckman. That guy is the current captain.

I don't think players give a rat's about that.

 

i don't know. Maybe not but i think when a player has decided to move to a new team, if push comes to shove, he'll act in his new teams best interests rather than the old team. 

If Freo budge from their current offer (i highly doubt it) I'm pretty sure it won't be because of prompting from LJ or his camp

Parting ways with an employer that has treated you with respect with a big F U would say a lot about him. I do wonder if it would effect his standing with the players. 

🤣

Mate as if they honestly care. James Harmes is currently partying up in the USA having a grand old time.

Do you honestly think he's thinking right now "Jesus, bloody Jacko.. bloody young fella wants to go home so I better delete his number off my phone"...

The players will happily welcome Jacko back when they have their 10 year premiership reunion.

This might upset a lot of people, but in my experience, very often fans hurt more than players at losses.

Further, very often fans are more invested in their club, than some of the players.

For those people that are stressing over this, try take some perceptive. This isn't the be all.

Remember what it felt like during those 2013/14 years etc, give or take 3 years lol. Since then we have won a premiership (still can't believe it) and we will contend every single year for at least the next 3-5 years. Getting a pick inside the top 10 over pick 13 from a big picture isn't worth the mental energy. 

There are too many variables that go into a player becoming a gun, that pick 13 or pick 8 doesn't really matter. I would love to stick it to Fremantle, but the odds the 5 picks earlier will have any impact on our future premierships is ridiculous.

It shouldn't upset people but I understand why it does.

People need to start accepting that footy really is business now. 

I love the current job I'm in now because of the great team environment we've built and also we socialise well come Friday night after work.

I'm currently getting poached by another organisation with a better pay rate but yet not sure how the culture is. In this day an age of cost of living going up I'd have to seriously consider it right?

Jacko's situation is different because the element of being around family etc. But footy is business to most with certainly another element of being loyal.

Players are programmed differently to us nuffy supporters.

isn't it possible that everything is possible simultaneously with nothing being possible, especially viewed through the lenses of existential cultural di-morphism?

something to ponder whilst we eagerly await the resumption of trade period

I’m waiting for Demonstone to reply.

And so they should, what a patch he had!!

I’m sure if we’re desperate enough, we could always package up 13, with Freo future first as well as our own future first.

AFL won’t dismiss it, as we’re bringing in youth now compared to youth later. Just depends on how we view next years draft as well.

Id prefer however to recruit for the now, but not many big fish in the sea this year.

Recruiters and draft experts like Cal Twomey have been following these kids long enough to be able to tell if one crop is stronger than another, especially in the first round or so. 

Are you living under a rock? 

To say that next year's group are considered to be stronger gives insight into the amount of top players that are playing high level footy at an underage level. 

It's the opposite of speculation. Experts forming their view based on evidence in the form of thousands of hours of vision. 

 

 

I am sure they believe it too

But 12 months is a long time and i bet you lots of kids in this years draft are also very good prospects

Adios to a spoilt, entitled culture breaker

Melbourne, just take the offer and here's to picking up a great kid in the draft

If WC end up with 8  and 12, do things get a bit more spicy here?

 

Yep, I'd take 8 and let them keep 12, and we find another late first rounder or early second.

I am sure LJ holds you in high regard too Jumbo. 
You have been a spiteful angry man ever since The Fritsch lad was recruited. 
Grow up.

LJ has left for family reasons

Couldn’t give a continental about his regard for me SWYL

And, it’s none of your business, but I’ve moved on from Watts - perhaps you need to as well?

The Club bent over backwards to look after this kid and nothing was good enough - good riddance, I say

And I’m sure you’ll reply to ensure you have the final say, but I won’t be responding. Say what you like

I look forward to welcoming the new draftee to the club

Adios

Sure thing. There's a great photo of jacko with a few teamates at the B and F.  He'll always be a legend along with his other 22 GF team mates.

You don't know that so don't put it in print and lower the tone of this debate.

And as for culture breaker - really.? He was a cog in a great team season in 2021. Lesser impact this year.

Trac, Clarry, Viney et al........ - now there are  the culture leaders that everyone follows.

He's still a kid barely 22. None of us know his personal priorities and should not take his ambition to return home personally IMO

That deal is not good enough. We need access to elite talent and dont want more picks that are diluted. I say we cannot accept anything where the best pick is 13 (which will as always be about pick 15,16 in reality). Freo and Dees knew they had no high picks weeks ago so how was this not sorted out? what a charade. Freo are taking trhe absolute [censored]. 

Force their hand dees and dont accept 3 lower picks. we ned players with X factor and 2019 we rolled the dice on Jackson and Pickett and won a premiership 2 years later. We need access again to those type of players. 

So Freo should help an opposition side out to their own detriment?

I am glad you arnt running our trades..

We were always getting unders because Freo has the whip hand and Jackson doesn't care what we get for him.

In 3 years time we might have a James Hird ( the player) type 55 pick

    CONSISTENCY by The Oracle

    "I think we have got a team that can win a premiership, and if we get in this year, I don't think there is a team that is going to want to play us. This year is not a write-off, I don't concede that. Not at all." — Collingwood President Jeff Browne. I love this sort of optimism from the Magpie President after his club’s eleven goal defeat at the hands of the fast rising Hawks. It’s consistent with the fighting spirit of the club that won last year’s flag.  I only wish I could say the s

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided
