He is full of [censored]…but no one can post the real story here, as admins will delete it

You were booted off here last time you posted rumour and innuendo.

Do it again and there'll be no coming back under a different name.

But I'm sure the 'real story' is fascinating.

Luke Jackson showing signs of his 2021 GF form according to The Age. Looks like that mystery knee niggle has been sorted out.

“Luke Jackson was everywhere for the Dockers in his debut, sharing ruck duties with Sean Darcy, kicking a goal, and spending time behind the play in defence. He won the ball off the ground after a centre bounce and handballed to fellow recruit Jaegar O’Meara who speared a kick onto the chest of Nat Fyfe on the lead”

So just like Chip, he mailed in his games knowing he was leaving. Say what you like about Danger, he played his heart out with the Crows knowing he was out the door.

I watched the first q of the freo crows game.

Jackson played pretty well. As wxpected Darcy was number one ruck, but Jackson probably played about 40% in the ruck.

Did some nice things when the ball hit the ground.

Played forward mostly when not rucking.

Marked on the chest leading out from full forward.

And from 30 kicked gun barrel straight for a goal.

Which was when the penny dropped he was no longer a Demon player!

and i bet he's:

  • training the house down
  • never been fitter
  • settling in well
  • helping the kids
  • bring his premiership experience
  • looking forward to having an impact
  • loving all the boys.

We played Frawley up forward and, I am told, we didn’t try very hard to keep him knowing we wanted to get ND3 as compensation. Much prefer to have had Brayshaw.

If you take off the spectacles of bitterness, it is not unusual that a player who was hampered with injury for a large part of 2022 has been able to return to full fitness over the offseason and perform well in the first practice match of 2023.

Some people just can't get used to the idea that a Melbourne player would wish to leave us, despite the fact that players leave every club every year.  We just  picked up three new faces in this very manner.

Points of order. He wasn't THAT amazing in the GF. And 'He was everywhere' may simply mean he was tried in lots of positions, so need to panic yet. On a brighter note, Freo lost.

Agreed on both points.

1) the legend of his third quarter artificially grows by the day. He got a couple of possession and maybe 1 or 2 clearances as well giving away 1 or 2 fees. I can think of a few players that had far more influence in the 3rd quarter of the Gf.

2) He was everywhere on Friday night because technically he played in various nominal positions.

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    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
