It’s pretty obvious IMV. I have no issue for LJ wanting to leave. It’s his right. However it’s not too much for us to ask LJ to behave professionally in the matter so that we are adequately compensated or have some leverage in negotiations.

This is the part that leaves a sour taste and I’m sure the club would be unhappy with this as well given how much we have supported him and did right by him all year.  It is quite disrespectful.

What do you expect him to do exactly? Go to the PSD if freo can’t compensate us adequately? He saw out his contract, didn’t rock the boat or be disruptive in any way from what I can tell and based on Kate Roffeys speech at the bnf leaves on good terms and would be welcomed back.

By all means have the [censored] with freo and Peter bellend but I don’t think Luke has done much wrong here.

Is this about him being photographed out and about with sean darcy? As far as I can tell everything else he's done has been professional.

It is totally inappropriate for anyone to reveal private matters affecting a player's choice, though reasonable speculation should be acceptable on a site like this.   

A number of posters have complained that if he knew he was going it would have been better for the club if he left last year and have stuck into him for not doing that.  That is why I asked if those who imply they know the personal reasons could state that those reasons didn't arise till this year.  If they only arose this year, that should shut those complainers up totally.  Not that they have much of a leg to stand on anyway.

I’ve heard a reason, no idea if true or not so won’t mention. But if it is true then can totally understand why he’s heading home. I would do the same if I were in his shoes.

You’re being obtuse - just stick to your view

I'm being obtuse? You're the one making insinuations with nothing to back up anything.

I'm asking a question...

All good

I asked how is he being disrespectful with his behaviour. And I asked it of @CYB as you were clearly happy to sprout innuendo and not provide anything else.

Yeah, [censored] tell us this PRIVATE FAMILY MATTER! I, as an anonymous poster, deserve to be told of a STRANGER’S FAMILY MATTER as it causing me momentary distress due to the inability of my football club to get commensurate value in a trade!

Take a bex and have a good lie down

That and out parting with Freo players. Now usually I couldn’t give a flying F for one’s social outings  but you can see the perception that it creates. The fact that he has no interest in WC basically takes them out of the running and  hence kills any leverage we had as the alternative (PSD) is not the option.

It doesn’t take much to do a tour of one’s facilities and create an illusion that he would consider WC. But I suspect the player , manager are telling Bell that he will be at Freo next year. Why else would Freo be so cocky in their negotiations.

My heart sank when I saw that...

Have they dropped their offer or are you referring to the one in this later post?

I would settle for that and give them our F2 and or F3 back since we typically don't take picks >40 to the draft.

No way would I give them anything back. We could've picked Young ( a great kick) who recently signed a 5 year deal instead of Luke. Pick 13 and a F1?? aren't equal let alone giving a F2 and F3 in a stronger draft next year.

You’re projecting what I do and do not know. I respectfully request that you keep your own inane summations to yourself

This man is not as it all seems….posters on here say ‘there, there’ and ‘thanks for your service’ but I’ll say one thing - he will never set foot in the club again

Nice!

The pressure is really starting to build and that is what Freo want, same with Lions and Bulldogs and Lobbe is in the middle. It’s a house of cards Freo want us to sweat and second guess their intentions as we have the most to lose, they are hoping that we buckle. Eagles are sitting on the sidelines waiting to see who blinks first knowing that we have a weak hand going into the draft and may have to get a deal done to save face and get something back. LJ has gone from the Golden Goose to Xmas Pudding according to Freo and Eagles. Grrrrr.!!

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    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
