Farewell Luke Jackson


Lucifers Hero

Recommended Posts

If West Coast are interested and he want to go there I think it get done pretty easily. 
As of round 15 they had picks 2,20 and 25. 
Given that we will probably make a play for Brisbanes first round pick that could then come into play. 
Would probably involve more than deal with several different clubs and LH has said future picks would prob be involved( our future first for one). But I think it would get over the line pretty easy. 
If he decides to go and nominates Freo then that a whole different ball game. 
Fingers crossed he decides to say and it’s not an issue.

Lions will probably get Ashcroft as F/S, touted to go pick 1-5 so will want to ditch their first round pick as Bulldogs and Pies did last year for Darcy and Daicos.

But we would have to trade out something/someone of equivalent first round value to get that whereas our 'natural first round pick, which we don't have is 'free'.

Not necessarily, we've been pretty good at identifying teams needing points for FS/academy selections and trading up the draft order by bundling picks. I know they've changed the rules on this recently but if we package picks 36 (at this stage) & 41 we may be able to move up.

Plus we don't know whether we'll get any compo if Gus decides to leave or a trade in a 2nd round pick if someone asks for a trade (say Hunt?)

Ah - why?

Because the AFL makes up the rules as they go (plus they have the ability to waive the rules if they deem fit). The AFL brought in the rule to stop teams mortgaging their future but Jackson is only in his 3rd season so giving up pick 2 or 3 for him when he was a pick 3 three years ago will be signed off easily.

They did a similar thing with the Hawks or Cats a few years back, signed off on them trading out a pick when they hadn't used enough in the 4 year period.

Twomey says the AFL would be likley to grant the exemption in the article, on the AFL website so I’d say you are correct.

What Niall doesn’t say is that if LJ stays at Melbourne he WILL have an elite Midfield to work with 

The Media want him to go. It creates more Media 

Yep they are just a bunch of wall drawers disguised as sentence compositors. Media is on the nose at the moment, and their target is us. They need to break the chain and they don't care who they ruin. Fancy not attacking  Collingwood or Footscray  or Geelong or Twsnbn continuously, they deserve it.

We just have to stand firm and say very little. 
i said years ago on here, we can become one of the Power Clubs in Australia, with the right people in charge. It takes time and onfield sustained success 

The Media expect the MFC to fail….

Wonder if there is a Brisbane forum with a hot thread full of people worrying he won't nominate for F/S aha.

Got 51 touches the other week, magnet.

Not too sure about LJ having a girlfriend. I watched the That's Good For Footy link that someone placed on this thread and he said he'd never had a girlfriend 😪

Jon Ralph reporting freo is confident Luke will leave, and he has apparently told some friends he wants to get to freo

Get this crap over with already. If he wants to go home, send him to Casey and bring in a replacement. Sick of this thread already. 
 

He was [censored] poor tonight - not sure whether it was injury - or mental. But he will become a liability if he doesn’t sign.

Does nothing to send him to Casey. We want to keep him. So we play him. If we can rest Gawn towards the back end we will be well placed come finals. If Jackson can help us do that he is contributing to another premiership run.

My very strong mail, and it won’t come as any surprise, is that Jackson will be playing in WA next year.  The Club even offered to move his family to Melbourne recently and it was rejected.

If you're reporting this then yep clearly he's gone.

What are we're thinking in return?

    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

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
