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?

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.

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.

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
