Farewell Luke Jackson


Lucifers Hero

Recommended Posts

Yep, whats all this nonesense about AFL players having to live close to mummy and daddy . Do they talk like this about  young NRL  players??

And stop referring to them as kids. I think its a women thing thats crept in  over recent years.

Theyre young men not kids.

Its not as if Jacksons parents live in a cave in Syria. He can get on  a plane and visit backwater Perth 2 or 3 times a year.  Jackson is the only person eho hasnt commented on his contract.

I bet  he stays.

What's with this pressure to return home by young adults to be near family and friends?  Our kids buzzed off to pursue careers and other things and have made new friends wherever they went. And without the sort of money in the bank that AFL players can have (if they have any sense).  They still keep in touch with old friends and family which these days is 1000 times easier than it was only 25 years ago.  Do footy players never grow up?

Yeah, I'm probably a rotten parent.

Luke and his parents should try living half a planet away from one another. Then come back to the “problem” of living in the same country, one 3hr45min flight apart and with a tonne of money.

My mail is he is leaning towards staying and biggest decision relates around length of contract.

The money is not an issue, he knows he will be well paid and the next contract is the big one

I anticipate a 2 year extension 

Said earlier, whats holding him up is how long to sign for.

And as I alluded to earlier, with video-phone calls and text messaging, keeping in touch these days is a breeze.  I am in contact with my son who lives overseas more than I did with my own parents when I lived in the same city as them.  And when I lived oevrseas, it was the weekly aerogramme (for those old enough to know what that was).

Personally I would not want to play with someone who I might be playing against in the GF the following year. As soon as he signs on with another club he shouldn't play for us again imo

We are effectively doing it now anyway, part of the game. We’re not alone, Swans lost Hewett and Dawson last year.

The AFL podcast this morning had Freo way ahead of WCE with a 'lure' for Jackson.

Hate to pass on some depressing info. 

  • Freo do not have a 2nd or 3rd round pick this year.  Currently they have #15 and #71.
  • For future picks they can only trade out their first round pick if they have a pick in every other round (either their natural pick or a traded in pick).  This reduces flexibility to use any 2023 draft currency.
  • They have signed up every player worth trading for.

Lets hope Jackson's friendship with Nic Nat is strong and Jackson picks WCE should he leave the dees.

Not necessarily. The club can refuse a trade and either force a signature or pre-season draft where he ends up at North.

I'd want Lobb and a top 10 pick as a BASE. If Freo wants a quick swap then can give us Brayshaw.

This'll be the second KPF Freo would have taken after Hogan. I say they get absolutely [censored] and we play hard ball if Jackson doesn't want to stay.

I can handle Jackson playing a year or 2 at North if it means we have to decline Peter Bell's inevitable final offer of a second round draft pick and Ethan Hughes thrown in as a sweetener for LJ.

He's going to be horrid to deal with if history is any guide.

‘Edited Reason: Nonsense’ 

Was that to remove or add?

 

Seriously, people, can we just calm down with the speculation on character until you know what he actually will do. He is an absolute gun and this is what happens to all clubs when you have someone like this. 

calm down chill out GIF

You waited for 75 pages to finally tell us this? What’s wrong with you man? We’ve already sold him off.

Agree. AFL players are seemingly the only professional athletes on the planet who can't cope with a move away from home at 18. I've never seen or heard of an NFL, NBA or football (soccer) player leave a club because they're homesick.  

Great post.

Andrew Brayshaw is currently top 5 in the comp and will be top 2 within 12 months. Freo would never let him go but I would enjoy seeing Freo fans sweat bullets if Jackson signals his intent to leave and Brayshaw is top of Melbourne’s shopping list.

No he won't. He won't be better than Petracca and Oliver for starters. I'm not saying there's no upside.

Eagles can't trade their first rounder this year though (unless they trade in another one or get special permission).

Either way, the goss is it'll be Freo and the club at this stage have said the deal will need to involved Andrew Brayshaw.

It's sounding like he's gone.

There is no way Freo give up Brayshaw in a trade for Jackson

Name one (modern day) player who has flourished after leaving Melbourne, as a big name....

Farmer? Nope

Hogan? Nope

Howe? Mebbe

Watts? Don't make me cry

Simmonds? Nope

Farmer played 118 games in 6 years for 259 goals at Melbourne. 

He played 131 in 6 years for 224 goals for Fremantle.

He was as good for them as he was for us. A remarkable player that you aren't doing justice to

You know this or just speculate ? I say the latter

Speculation of course. Based on snippets from Brayshaw, Goodwin, Richardson and Gus and Gawny podcast. Which is a ton better than Barrett ect who base their speculation on “ Post bye, hasn’t signed yet. His gone.”

Although in our case, we (the parents) ran away from home.

    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

    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

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
