Were we to win another flag this year 🤞, I’d bare no ill will if Jacko left.

Of course id much rather him stay, but if I were to see a flag in person, on top of finally see us raise the cup last year (all be it from here in Melbourne), then all would be right in the world.

we should be targeting sustained success and identifying key pillars in that vision. Players like Sparrow, ANB, Spargo, you love them and you're glad they're along for the ride but they are ultimately replaceable. Guys like Jackson and Brayshaw are part of a group of 5-6 players that are truly once in a generation types at their position. It's a bit like playing NBA 2K22 My Team and landing multiple diamond players for your squad. You don't trade them out for more card packs in the hope you'll land more diamond players. You keep them for as long as you can. Three years of Jackson ain't enough and anything less than him being a Demon For Life would really hurt.

I agree with what you are saying, but I think Tom Sparrow is going to get a lot better.

If the $$$ involved mean we keep Brayshaw and lose Dogga - I'm OK with that.  Brayshaw is far more important IMV

And we will get serious compensation for trading jackson at the $$$ involved - 2 top 10 and an emerging star would be going rate for a million dollar per year contract. Or top 10 and their Brayshaw. It's going to cost them plenty if they think he's worth the dollars reported 

I’d love to snag the other Brayshaw, but has anyone thought where we would actually play him?

Can we rename this thread? It’s a pain to open it up and there’s just endless speculation but nothing concrete. 
Maybe change the name of the thread to speculation about Luke Jackson.

Any news about house hunting or Mordialloc coffees today?

Haha, this thread read a lot better back in October. Some claimed it was a done deal back then and an announcement was just around the corner. We do get some great mail on here, was really hoping this one was on the money back then.

Just hope he nominates the Eagles now.

Cal Twomey on AFL exchange reckons there's a growing consensus around the league that Jackson is going to request a trade.

Probably based on the fact that he hasn’t re signed by now.

Interesting that other big names at other clubs, like Neale and English, already have.

If he does go need to play hardball. If it is go home factor west coast have to be in the mix . Prefer him to go into the draft and get nothing than get late first rounder and steak knives from freo. 
 

I think Gus will stay

A lot of water to go under before that happens. But if Dogga does in fact want to go to the Eagles, I think they will split pick 2 into a couple of 1st rounders in the teens. Then offer us one of those and a 2nd rounder (about 20). 

 

Yeah, no.

Luke is a former pick 3 whose value has only gone up.

I find it hard to reconcile his obvious joy and happy demeanour after the game last week with his desire to leave. Obviously he’s thinking about leaving otherwise he’d have signed by now but I don’t think he’s definitely gone by any means.


And if he does decide to go I’ll be pretty peeved he didn’t go last year when we had a chance to trade in cerra

That just means opinions are swinging that way, not facts

it means buyer beware recruiting anyone from WA, especially if they are any good. 

I guess it depends which way you look it at.

If you take a short term view and we win back to back flags with LJ playing 2 good grand finals, then you'd say the recruitment was a roaring success, we shake his hand and get some good compensation.

If you take a long term view, it's an absolute disaster to lose a pick 3 that the club clearly had a 15 year view of that player being the number one ruck and franchise player of the club, irrespective of what state they're from.

I think Taylor and Co. will avoid WA (and even other states) if we ever get a prized pick again (i.e. - top 5)

    CHANGES 2022 Part Three 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

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro
