"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."

I presume your daughter is a dees fan?

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.

Just make sure he has the teeth in for the Tinder profile - after all, he plays for the MFC, not Collingwood!!

"Luke, could you spare the old man another million? I wanna buy another couple of Lamborghinis. Good lad."

My actual daughter is vaguely aware of a sport known as football and has been informed by her mother that Dad is quite pleased about it, because his team the ... the whatever they are ... won something recently.

I'm actually happy for him to go off to Freeo. Gladly except 5 first rounders in '22, 3 in '23 and 1 in '24 for him. 

I wouldn't😉

I’m not convinced yet. 
Seems a bit selfish winning Rising Stars and Premierships at 20. 

Greedy bugger isn’t he. Next he will have a Brownlow 

Wouldn’t be surprised if he told Max during the post flag celebrations that he is now 2nd ruck

I think Luke is young man who in his 2 seasons has achieve only what other players could dream off, listening to some interviews he does not come across as a player with tickets on himself.

He sounds level headed and when thrown into the deep end lifts his game rather than drowning in expectation these are characteristics that make a champion compare his 30 game career to Jack Watts who basically was thrown to the wolves and drowned in the expectation.

Yep, I think his nature is summed up by his reaction to loosing a tooth.....have a laugh with the team-mates, take the [censored] out of yourself in the media and then just get on with it

minimum fuss/drama

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!

Absolutely! Also having Jackson enables Max to make his career longer. Max has greatly improved his resting forward game this year and with Jacko spending more time in the ruck over the next few years it should enable Max more durability playing 70% ruck 30% forward or 60-40 in a couple of years rather than if he is getting beat up in the ruck near 90% game time. 
Must sign him.

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.

 

It’s amazing how many once in a generation players come along each generation 😉

How things have changed.

I’ve been reading loops like this for the past 20 or so years during which I’ve generally experienced feelings of extreme nausea and have suffered the cold sweats, all the while desperately searching for any wholly unreliable and unsubstantiated (and most likely completely fabricated) rumour which tended to suggest that the player in question didn’t hate the club and would possibly re-commit to the joint for another 6-12 months.

I now read these loops with the calmness of a Tibetan monk. We will re-sign everyone we want to re-sign, on commercially appropriate terms - even if clubs such as Geelong or Hawthorn are in the hunt for that player and have offered them a $1m a year contract for 25 years.

Isaac Smith must be kicking himself, as I expect would his wife and kids. Turned down a 3 year deal with us, to instead accept a 2 year deal with an arrogant club possessing an inferior and ageing list and, in doing so, relocate his entire family to a very different postcode.

We’re not that club anymore.

I hope to read in the coming days that Luke and the club have agreed to a 10 year contract extension. God bless us all heh.

Petracca, Oliver, Gawn and Jackson. All once in a generation type players, all in the same team at the same time, and they’re playing for us!

Not a bad spot over that side of the bay.
Better than the other.

    THE STUFF OF NIGHTMARES by Whispering Jack

    Please don’t talk to me about Melbourne’s lack of ruckmen last week at the Adelaide Oval. Or the discrepancy in the free kick numbers. Those things might have played a role in the way that the game unfolded but if you focus on them, then you are missing some truly significant pointers as to how the rest of the season is going to pan out for the Melbourne Football Club and in particular, on what happens on Thursday night when the team plays against Geelong at the Cattery. Here are some of th

    NO CONFUSION by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took more than half a game to crack Port Melbourne at Casey Fields on Saturday but when they finally did so, they were merciless and in the end, they took no prisoners.   What made Casey’s 58-point victory win so remarkable was the fact that even after late call ups to the Melbourne team that traveled to Adelaide deprived them of key players from their goal to goal line, the less experienced replacements all made meaningful contributions to the side’s overall performance as

    DOZEN FOR THE DEES by George On The Outer

    Melbourne stormed to its twelfth win for the 2022 season after finally putting the Crows away in the final quarter of their clash at Adelaide Oval. The 29-point victory was by no means an easy one for the Demons who went into the game without a recognised ruck and a forward line with a solitary tall. With a patched-up structure of Sam Weideman and Mitch Brown in the ruck, it was not surprising to see Adelaide dominate these contests.   However, despite 48 hitouts alone to Adelaide’s Re

    REMINDERS by Mel Rundle

    For those of us who were at the Adelaide Oval to watch Melbourne’s first defeat for the year on that fateful evening in May of last year, the moment at which the final siren blared is still seared into our collective memory. A victory stolen away by a combination of factors including our own hubris, a frenzied crowd that seemed to control the minds of the umpires, some dreadful kicking for goal and a touch of plain bad luck. Perhaps it might have been the team’s training regimen that provid

    TURNING ON THE HEAT by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed north to taste some Queensland sunshine and despite having to leave out skipper Mitch White who was stricken with the flu, they had little trouble in turning on the heat and disposing of finals contender Gold Coast. The Demons were dominant from the very start with exciting young key forward Jacob Van Rooyen on fire early and Mitch Brown destroying the Suns with his marking and leading despite his erratic kicking for goal. By the time newcomer Ryan Valentine goaled w

    JUNGLE KINGS by George On The Outer

    The top of the table Brisbane Lions came into their game against Melbourne thinking they were kings of the AFL Jungle. However, by game’s end they were shown to be toothless, as the rampant Demons gave them a lesson about the exact level you have to be at to justify that mantle.  The first quarter saw Brisbane squander some easy chances in front of goal, which kept Melbourne within striking distance and, as a result, the Lions led by a mere goal. Of course, it could have been so much d

    A STEP FORWARD? by The Oracle

    The winds of change have blown through the Melbourne Football Club over the past month or so as the team previously known for applying relentless pressure on opponents dramatically fell from its pedestal to a low not seen for some three years. This is a team that had the luxury of going through last season with one of the healthiest lists in the competition. And that health was not only reflected in a weekly injury list that revealed very few key players missing, but importantly, even fewer

    HUMBLE PIE by George on the Outer

    Seventeen wins in a row followed by a trio of losses.  The invincible Demon juggernaut was simply humbled by the Pies in that third loss, as once again they gave up an early three goal plus lead, to be over-run in the end. Is it loading? Perhaps. Is it the loss of players? Perhaps More likely, they are a combination of the two. Certainly, we have seen the side take an early lead in all of these games only to fade as reflected on the scoreboard where Melbourne has been outscored 25

    EARLY FREEZE by KC from Casey

    If the publicity ahead of Queens Birthday Monday was all about the Big Freeze and the game to follow the pre-game entertainment then the hardy group that braved the country’s cold snap to travel out to the windy plains beyond Cranbourne were given an early taste of what was to come in the Casey's big 52-point win over Collingwood VFL. The day started well with the Demons comprehensively beating the VFLW Magpies in the curtain-raiser elimination final and then their male counterparts donned

    Melbourne’s fortunes took a dramatic turn for the worst on the day the Anthony Albanese was elected as Prime Minister. Since that fateful day, Steven May pinged his hamstring early in the match against the Dockers, Harry Petty came off the ground in consecutive games feeling the worse for wear, it was revealed that Tom McDonald’s foot was in messy shape, the Herald Sun exclusively reported that two years ago, Demon committee members exchanged emails critical of the team after it lost a game by 5

    BANGED UP by George On The Outer

    Melbourne v Sydney. City v City. Two top eight sides fighting for finals spots.  Sydney having beaten the Demons in ten of their last twelve encounters.    In what would turn out to be one of the most hotly contested games for the club in 2022, the physical damage to players was probably the deciding factor in the end.   Once again, Melbourne lost Tom McDonald pre-game to a yet unspecified foot injury.  More importantly was how much his work up the ground and bullocking influ

    TEN by KC from Casey

    The slippery surface of the MCG was a minor detail for the Casey Demons as they waltzed away from the Sydney Swans to record their tenth win on end in their Saturday afternoon curtain raiser. The Demons conceded the first goal of the game before recording the next three (two to Sam Weideman) to hold a 16 point lead at the first break before the Swans pegged that back to a mere three points at half time. Casey dominated the third term with four goals to nil and thereafter the Swans’ resistan
