Farewell Luke Jackson


Lucifers Hero

Recommended Posts

Jackson will be a star. He has rare attributes and with time will become more polished. The only thing I can see stopping him is potential concussion issues, as he wants to be an inside mid, and coupled with his height, aggression, and stooping posture when hunting the ball I just think it’s an accident waiting to happen. I predict he will develop into a fwd/ruck, and one of the better ones in recent times. He has the attributes to be a very very good forward. I can’t see the midfielder experiment working though.

Not sour grapes at all hey...

  Remind me which poster made the following comments:

"Then there is Jackson, who is also super important to our future success."

"Luke Jackson may be the answer in the ruck.  He is like another midfielder when the ball hits the ground and we look more dynamic with him in there"

Helped us win a premiership and was a popular teammate, so I don't really get the angst some seem to have, and certainly think references to his mother are childish at best.

Don't get me wrong, i appreciate all he did in our Premiership season.  Last season though he seemed to have very little impact....in fact he went backwards imo.  Personally i rated some of the things he did on the field as exciting, but his consistency may be years away, in fact it may never come.  Is he a ruck/a forward/a midfielder?  I would say he falls way below expectations on any of those roles currently.

As for being childish with the mum insults, it was said tongue in cheek...i could care less what happens to Luke or his mum now he is not one of ours.  Just making a prediction that he won't live up to Freo's expectations.  He is getting paid like an elite player now, with this comes much greater responsibility....Not sure he is ready for all that entails.

Fremantle supporters will expect great things from him on a weekly basis.  Apart from being a great athlete i don't think he has the skills/craft to be an elite player wherever placed on the field.  Contributing will not be enough given his pay packet

If i actually posted any of what you quoted it would have been from 2021....2022 he was super disappointing...His contract discussion was a constant distraction, his form tapered off, by end of year i thought he barely warranted a place in the seniors.

After reading 315 pages on him, rightly or wrongly i am entitled to an opinion on him.   I do actually watch every match and have an idea on his actual strengths and weaknesses.

Yeah, how dare she thank the club and the supporters and be happy to have her son back in the same state as her.

Saying a players Mum is "fair game" says more about you than her tbh.

Quit clutching your pearls.

When you say something publicly, as she did, you open yourself up to the conversation.

I wouldn’t say anything about Weed’s mum. Why? Because she didn’t put herself in the conversation by commenting publicly. See how it works?

Can anyone offer up a reason as to why his early season games where so much better than his finals performances this year?

He was Melbourne'd.

AH yes, I see how it works in your world - Keep your mouth shut, even if you're saying absolutely nothing negative, otherwise you're fair game for anonymous people on the internet. Sounds cool mate.

He's only just turned 21, I think we sometimes forget that given how quickly he burst onto the scene, and it seemed clear this year he was battling injury/soreness as the year went on.

Fair enough, but you've probably noticed many others are seemingly still carrying the intense hurt at Luke's Mum daring to thank the club on the internet and have said she's "fair game".

 Pre-season this year to be fair, but you definitely held a different opinion of him before it became clear he would leave.

revisionism is alive and well - and most of us are guilty of it.

Jackson's most exciting trait is that he doesn't know how good is he

His biggest weakness is he doesn't know how good is he

Not sure he has the swagger (as the kids say) to be as good as he could potentially be

Time will tell

Nothing burns more than being called ‘an anonymous person on the internet’ by an anonymous person on the internet.

I’m not sure I’ll ever recover.

What a random thing to say he has never had concussion issues before and there are plenty of tall mids that never have an issue I’d say there’s more of a chance of the Perth party life getting to him

Well he has history.

I'm sure it was reported he got involved in a Perth night club dust up just after the GF (separate to the one that the Dees and Dogs reportedly got into)

Never heard of it...

...and if he has, who cares now.

Got a source for this kind of stuff? Only thing I remember being reported was that he was denied entry (along with a group of mates) to a club and then police came along and they all had a chat. No mention of a 'dust up'. Happy to see your info, but would probably think twice about making up stuff like this if it isn't factual.

Correct.

There was no dust up, there was a photograph of him talking to the security guard and that's it.

Honestly, what 20 year old ratbag kid hasn't been refused into a club before.

Saying he has "history" of behaviour is now just laughable.

Whenever I get a new smartphone, without fail the screen gets scratched inside the first year of having it.

It might be the light in this waiting room but I can clearly see it while trying to read this thread.

If anyone has any fixes PM me. It's not a deep scratch but is noticeable.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    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

    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
