I am 100% confident of one thing 

This thread is easily going to make 100 pages before we know what LJ has decided 

We’ve reached 2,000 posts in this thread. If we can get another 4,500 posts we’ll have as many Jacko-contract-posts as Essendon have days since their last final win

Gus has been great, been versatile and filled in on the wing and in defence when we needed him to. A very good servant to the club

But if its a choice between him and dogga then its dogga for me. much higher ceiling

So here’s the pitch. 
“Luke, you can stay at the team that drafted you, that developed you into the rising star, put together a team that helped you win a premiership and looks capable of more, gives you the best ruck mentor in the game in Gawny and has all of your best mates. You can lock in to play with Gawn, Oliver, Petracca, Viney, Salem for the next four to seven years OR you can go to a West Coast team just starting a rebuild or a Freo team that looks good, but hasn’t achieved anything yet”

If he doesn’t extend for two years he’s pretty silly I reckon.

Yep. Would love both to stay, but if I had to choose to keep only one, it has to be Dogga.

Though I still want Gus to stay.

In contrast here is a lengthy discussion mainly by Mooney and Lewis who are encouraging him to sacrifice the big $ for now as they will come in time.  luke-jackson-analysis-out-of-contract.  It is one of the more considered articles I've seen on his contract. 

Goodwin said in his press conf the club is comfortable with the contract talks and Jackson 'will be paid what he is worth over time...' (or words to that effect).

I have little doubt he will stay and will not get the big bucks in this contract.

There is little point in his going to a mid list club and potentially condemning himself to mid list mediocrity. He can do that in the latter stages of his career when, if it is as successful as we all believe it to be will make him on of the best paid players in the AFL. He has to show that tho consistently in finals and he has to do that in a top club. Neither WA clubs are likely to be that in the next five years.

Pick 2 and a future first from the eagles for Jackson and a future first?

Assuming eagles finish bottom 4 next years, make Jackson worth slightly more on points than pick 1.

Profess to know how this ends ,but in Taylor we trust. I think we owe him that.

Hypothetically could he already already have a satisfactory result in his back pocket on this?

The younger Brayshaw keeps rolling around in my head.

Surely he would want to play with his brother at some point and if he wanted too ,have an at worst, equally compelling case to come home.

Remember, the years are rolling by.

Would Jacko really want to go to Freo for say the cost of young Brayshaw who could be the reigning Brownlow medalist?

l mean what a cross to wear, that could be😳

l think if he has a half decent manager, he stays for two years doesn’t he?

I still can't get my ahead around why people think Andrew Brayshaw is an option in return for LJ.

Freo absolutely love the guy, he's going to be the future captain and face of the club and is their best player. Freo will say thanks but no thanks and move onto another trade target if Melbourne demand Andrew Brayshaw or nothing.

Serong might be a more realistic target, but once again, Freo will be desperate to keep him and clubs approaching their premiership window such as Freo are buyers not sellers. 

I expect we'll get draft capital in return rather than A grade players and it may involve a third party.

It seems Lobb is all but signed up with the Bulldogs so he wouldn't be part of any trade, if there was to be one. 

Don't see how Lobb even get's a game at the Bulldogs.

I disagree, he would be a perfect fit for them. 

Similar to our tall set up... 

English = Gawn 

Lobb = Jackson

Naughton = BBB

Marra= Fritta

Bruce = tmac/weid

I want Jacko to stay as much as the next person, but history says that clubs who lose big name players never end up really losing. 

Bulldogs lost Ryan Griffin - flag

West coast lose Judd - Kennedy 

Hawks lose Buddy - Flag

Geelong lose Kelly - look how that's turning out

 

I think if this happens we have to leverage everything we can and get ourselves a star Key Forward... one of Curnow or Mckay? Nick Larkey? and i think if we managed to make this happen then we could come out on top and stil be premiership favourites

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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
