the point is they have leaked players over the years as much as any afl club

and yes i know their history, very impressive, but not so the last few years. i'm a fan.

More than any AFL club. AFL clubs rarely lose a top 10 player in the comp, let alone year after year. Imagine the Dees losing May this year along with Gawn, ,Salem, Lever & then Oliver next year, Petracca the year after etc. They turn over a dozen players a year. But that’s the benefit of No draft, no trading & no sticking to contacts. Clubs rarely hold players to a contract, even 1 year into a 4 year deal as it’s not worth keeping a player that wants out.

Tampered competition if you ask me. With the very low power the clubs seem to have over the players, it is unfair that they are permitted all these sort of liberties midway season in which the team was pursuing back to back premierships.

Cmon no one has any right to stop someone from looking for another employment opportunity. I’m employed, but I talk to other employers all the time about job opportunities that will benefit me. They have a right to look after their future & if you ban the player, then their manager will do it, a family member etc will do it.

My contention is, how invested was LJ this season knowing he was gone? Is that fair for us?

I guess it wasn't as crazy an idea to bench him in the latter part of the season..

Does your current employer know?

Why not also live your own life & make your own choices like all adults should. It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t love your family or friends, but jeez you don’t need to live near them or even in the same state as them. I love my parents, but I have my own life, live in another state, as do my brothers & my own son lives in another state to me. 

He made his own choice and decided to live close to his family. Good for him and he got good money to do so after reaching the peak of a career. A Premiership!! 
 

I love my parents too. No job would take me away from them. We all have different ideas of what family means. Dogga made his, yet your whinging for the sake of the MFC, and disrespecting his family. 
 

hmmmmm

Coming from someone living down the road from Snowtown, hilarious

Close, I’m about 1100km from Snowtown. In saying that I played some of my footy for the Blyth-Snowtown Cats. Good times when that happened, it was certainly a good party started & topic around the BBQ with a few beers.

Head of Player Personnel David Walls expects Jackson to be worth Fremantle’s significant investment of draft capital.

“Luke has been our number one priority all year and obviously throughout the trade period,” Walls said.

[...]

“In his draft year, we had him rated at number one in the draft.

“Even though we also picked up Hayden Young and Caleb Serong, with Luke being local, we’ve followed him for a long time going back to his juniors.

[censored] hell they've been in his year since he stepped foot on a footy field. He was always going to head back sooner or later.

Nope & they have no right to know. They will know when I hand in my resignation letter just like LJ did. I mean there would be that many players/managers already talking to other clubs for 2024 already when they’re out of contract, it’s life & it’s a business.

You’re a contradiction! Making up your own rules as it suits you…

His mum made his choice. She’s done all the yapping, her pet dog has said nothing.

How so. All players have a right to talk to other clubs, but they have no obligation to tell their current employer. That’s just a fact & a part of business. Some may mention they want to leave, but others won’t just as they know they won’t be told they’re not required until an exit interview. Not sure how that’s hard to comprehend.

I think Luke his made it quite clear he grew up supporting Freo and wanted to play for them. 

Then we should scrap the draft and just have an academy system like the EPL! Why bother?!

Can someone calculate where Freo would have to finish next year for us to break even on this deal, i.e. where would they need to land next year, for us to get Pick 3 worth of points from Pick 13, R1 + R2..? 

Please?

Will help with the "death riding" next year...

major cringe. Described as a unicorn tht they didn’t think was worth a pick inside the top ten. Get stuffed Freo. God I can’t wait until we play them. I’m betting it’ll only be once next year, in Perth.

What the [censored] did I just watch?!

    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

    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
