Luke Jackson Contract?

Recommended Posts

From The Age:

Melbourne is talking with the management of Rising Star winner and premiership big man Luke Jackson with the Demons categorically denying they have had any talks with Fremantle about the WA native.

Jackson is out of contract at the end of season 2022 and Melbourne wants him to extend his stay with the former Australian under-17 basketballer developing faster than many expected culminating in his ruck work in the grand final helping to turn the game to the Demons in the third term.

Demons list manager Tim Lamb shot down any suggestion they had talked with the Dockers about Jackson.

“At no time, has there ever been a conversation internally, or with Fremantle, about Luke Jackson,” Lamb told AFL trade radio.  “I can categorically say that has never occurred.  “He’s out of contract at the end of next season, we’re talking with his manager and happy with where it sits.”

He would be bonkers to leave now, if he really wanted to go home you would stay with us until he hits his prime in 5-6 years. Take the 1.5 mil from freo and head home with 3 premierships draped around his neck.

We need to cling to this bloke like stink on a monkey.

Maxy is a club legend and easily in the top ten players in our history. However, I'd give him 4 years max (see what I did there?).

Dogga, at the trajectory he is on, will be All Australian caliber himself by the time he walks into the first ruck spot.

Get this done!

He isn't going anywhere (no source just my take). He looks so happy and settled with the group. He just won a flag with more to come hopefully from a young group. He talked about working with Max (who he said was like a father figure) for many more seasons. He got an MFC premiership tattoo!!

What more do you need?

Is a 10 year deal too long?!?

No. But then I wanted to give Oliver a ten year deal last year too, so maybe I'm more reckless (or is that aggressive?) with my list management decisions.

"Luke, let me introduce you to this nice girl who's a stunner, who lives in South Yarra, right near Gosch's, and whose family all live near Casey fields, and who has no intention of moving anywhere else in Australia, ever."

there was some talk from an actual reliable source - it may even have been jake niall? - that his parents are actually looking to move to melbourne

It was actually Gary Lyon who told me this during an on air call to SEN

How many years for Dogga would you be happy with?

Sometimes young stars don’t progress as expected for different reasons. I’m thinking of Jesse Hogan, Jake Stringer, Joe Daniher who were all once 20 year old stars. Patrick Cripps is not elite anymore after being one of the competition’s best a few years back. There are more examples I’m sure.

That being said, I’m comfortable enough with Dogga being a generational talent that a three or four year extension (+1 already agreed to in 2022) would make an already perfect 2021, well… even more perfect.

The two year extension to end 2024 will be done. Won't come cheap.

Post 2024 who knows but the offers coming in especially from a post Natanui Eagles could be huge.

2024 will be the year our list managers really earn their money as we could be looking to replace Gawn, Ben Brown and May just to mention a few.

In the meantime 2 or 3 more flags would be nice

I think the Jackson re-signing is as important as Petraccas and Olivers. He is an absolute gun. However I don't believe everything I read in the opening post and I am willing to bet that Freo and maybe west coke have said something to melbourne.

Luke Jackson is a once in a Generation type player, never have i seen a Ruckman at such a young age or any age for that matter take a game away from a side in such a short space of time.

Just like in the NBA with the Chicago Bulls if you wanted a ring you had to come through Chicago the same applies with the AFL.

If you want a medallon your neck your gonna have to come through Melbourne to get one and you'll have to have one hell of a Ruck combination to beat our dynamic duo.

The club have to be reasonable but sensible at the same time, play this right and he could be one of the great of the Club and the game.

Statue outside of the G type player we have on our hands right next to his partner in crime Sir Maximus.

Just need to start a go fund me page and start him up a TInder profile (Melbourne girls only) and the rest should take care of itself.

Seriously though, no one with any choice in the matter is leaving the MFC in the next 5 years. it's going to be bloody exciting.

Must agree - the above article from 'The Age' is cloaked in speculative innuendo that raises hopes in non-MFC supporters and otherwise biased journalists/media that Jackson is unhappy, home-sick and ready to depart. The lad is having the time of his life at the MFC and has accepted that role and its attendant responsibilities with absolute class and determination - as a family member of a great bunch of blokes and extended Club identities. No way is he going to leave - such a move would contradict all that he has given, achieved and adapted to at a great rate of knots.

'Carna' Dees; onyer, Jacko!

    HORSING AROUND by George On The Outer

    Before the match it was claimed that Collingwood were a “one trick pony” side.  Well that one trick worked very well against Melbourne, as they extended their winning streak to 11 for the season. Meanwhile, the Demons continued to horse around with structures which simply haven’t been working. The one tall forward option with resting rucks failed yet again, in an almost identical manner to the game against the Bulldogs recently.  93 more possessions, 65 inside 50 entries 24 more than the op

    THE BUBBLE by The Oracle

    "I feel like we've got more than enough experience in close games. It'd be nice to win one by five or six goals and have that pulse lower a little bit late in games, but that's not our story." — Scott Pendlebury on the eve of his team’s forthcoming Round 21 game against Melbourne. When you read words such as these, you know it’s time for Melbourne fans to be humble. The old enemy is up and about while our mantle of invincibility has vanished into thin air.

    ANCHORS AWEIGH! by George on the Outer

    So came the cry from the Dockers as the S.S. Fremantle set sail with the hopes of all of their supporters on board on the mighty ship. Their task was to do nothing more than to defeat the Melbourne side and a top four position on the ladder was assured. The problem for them was that their leaky boat came up against the mighty battleship - Team Demon and it didn’t take long after they left port for their vessel to develop a multitude of leaks. The first salvo was fired by First Officer

    SWEET SIXTEEN by KC from Casey

    The game was an uneven match up from the very beginning. The Casey Demons, representing an alignment between the reigning premiers Melbourne and the outer southeastern expansion area centred around a sprawling Cranbourne with its rapid population growth and the stand alone Northern Bullants from the inner north who sit at the foot of the VFL table. With 14 AFL listed players and a couple more having experience at the elite level opening with the breeze at their backs, the result was inevitable.

    THE HUNGER GAME by Whispering Jack

    The game may well have taken place a day short of ten weeks ago but the atmospherics surrounding Friday night’s match between Melbourne (then Narrm) and Fremantle are light years apart from those that prevailed when the teams last faced off the MCG in late autumn. On one hand, the Demons were in the midst of a 17 game winning spree that included a drought breaking premiership victory. On the other, the Dockers were coming off a six goal thrashing at Optus Stadium in teeming rain against a then s

    DOG-TIED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were extended early against rivals Footscray VFL in their matchup played in wet and greasy conditions at VU Whitten Oval on Saturday but, after establishing their authority in the second quarter, they were able to tie up their opponents at the end to maintain their undefeated run which now stands at 15.  The game began under grey threatening skies and the wet conditions turned the game into a tight slog with scoring kept down to a minimum. The Demons were held goalless agai

    DOG DAY by George On The Outer

    It is said that every dog has its day and that was certainly the case when the Western Bulldogs defeated Melbourne under the roof at the Docklands on Saturday night.   While the Dogs were certainly at the very top of their game, the same couldn’t be said of the Demons. All around the ground, dismal individual performances and dismal team performances were the order of the day.  Fans should have been worried right from the start as the game turned into a goal-fest. This is not their team’

    RAINING CATS & DOGS by Whispering Jack

    Despite winning their game in the Red Centre at the weekend, the consensus among the pundits is that Melbourne’s days in the sun are over. Ten rounds into the season, they were the competition’s top dogs and regarded virtually unbeatable but their recent form (three wins from the last seven games) has put them well below par, perilously clinging onto second spot on the ladder with storm clouds on the horizon. The air of invincibility that once surrounded them is gone and the Demons face a t

    THE KOZZY SHOW by George On The Outer

    Q: Melbourne is playing Port Adelaide at Traeger Park, Alice Springs and once again, it doesn’t have a properly functioning forward line — so from where were the goals going to come?   A: Kysaiah Pickett.     In a one man show in front of his adoring fans, he racked up six majors to give the Demons the edge in the game and to finally run out winners by 14 points.     The result could well have been very different without his efforts with Melbourne failing to score a major

    SWITCHING ON by The Oracle

    We can’t take anything for granted, can we? After all, the Melbourne that took Port Adelaide for a long ride around the Adelaide Oval in early April of this year and switched off late in the game is finding it difficult of late to switch back on. Apart from a stellar display against the Brisbane Lions a fortnight ago, the Demons have laboured during the middle part of the season and, with a tough draw ahead of them, have reached a critical stage of the season after their first flag in decad

    STORIES by KC from Casey

    There were more than a few stories about Friday night’s game between the Casey Demons and Geelong at GMHBA Stadium. The first was one of complete domination in the first quarter (six goals to nil), ascendency in the last (five to two) and the second was about the void in between (zero to seven). The third was about how, in the end, the Demons retained their unbeaten record despite the hell of a scare they had on the rainswept spaces of the Cattery. However, the story that folk might be

    NIPPED by George on the Outer

    Melbourne’s twenty eight point loss to Geelong down at Taxpayer Funded Park provided plenty of cat-nip for the Geelong fans and their team.  After all, the Cats go away thinking they have now got the Demons sorted after the embarrassments heaped upon them last season and their taste of this cat-nip will get even stronger in the coming weeks, courtesy of the AFL draw which gives them three more home games at the same venue in the six remaining rounds.  Yet Melbourne, despite this loss
