None I would suggest.

Really ? so if he said tomorrow he wants out it doesn't change the dynamic - I think it has to - how much who knows

I'm hearing positive things about Dogga staying for a couple of years

Thanks Danny.

I think 2 years for Jackson and Brayshaw make sense. Hopefully we have more flags in that time and Dogga's value will have increased and Gus's won't decrease.

We'll have a clearer picture of succession, if necessary, by then. And they'll have more flags.

Now that English is signed for 2 years, I can't see LJ signing for anymore than that (which is what i think he will do), in 2 years time those two will be the big story again around going back west, and by then NicNat will be finished but WC might be on the up again.

He remains close with Trent, his parents are happy with his welfare at the club, he wants to repay the draft faith and the decision to give him an extended break in Perth pre-season, the offer is as flexible as he needs it to be, he wants to continue learning from Max and he generally isn't motivated by money or stardom.

I'm assuming this is all guess work. He may well be close friends with Trent, but his closest circle of friends are in Perth. Rivers returned to Melbourne after the GF to be with his girlfriend. Jackson hung out in Perth with his mates.

He really doesn't strike me as someone holding out for cash.

This is some performance. 

His role as a number 1 ruckman tonight has been nothing short of super tonight.

Gets rag dolled at times during ba ups but that's a non issue for me considering how young he is against a much bigger opponent.

Just goes to show how much we need to try and keep him. He is a superstar at 20.

He seems happy. The crowd gave him so much love. Goody was beaming when he came off and Jackson was smiling from ear to ear. 
If he leaves I’m comfortable that we’ve done our best by him and I’ll always thank him for that third quarter…

He was sensational. If he stays then fantastic, and if he leaves he’s going to leave on an astronomical contract offer that will mean we get a LOT in return.

Imagine if we took Lachie Ash or Dylan Stephens and Jackson went somewhere else? We would be furious.

Meggs was in a corporate box tonight with mostly WA supporters.  The Weagles supporters are a mostly disinterested lot in 2022 but the Freo ones are convinced they are getting Dogga and Gus (though they couldn’t recall his name)…

Luke, the force is strong with this one…what a game!

Keeping him long term just got a lot harder...   But short term may be real.  His comments post game about being surrounded by Trac, Oliver and Viney in the ruck made me think that he has to be aware of what a good thing he's been gifted.

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    After a very wasteful first half of footy the Demons ended up cruising to a clinical victory over the Saints by 38 points at the MCG and ultimately reclaimed a coveted spot in the Top 4.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    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
