You of all people should not be bagging out others in this thread. Have you forgotten about the absolute twaddle you trotted out earlier in this very thread? You couldn't even adequately explain what you meant. Then complained that you were being picked on.

If Jackson does leave and Cerra is on our list at the end of the 2022 trade period I will bow down to you as King of the world and pledge my life to you.

Cool one mate. I like the bit where you completely make up scenarios I didn't say would happen.

Have a nice night.

Why leave somewhere when you are obviously enjoying yourself as a main contributer?

The MFC deal will be dam good 

He won’t have the press on his back every week. That is a massive consideration 

The lure home might be strong though.  Look at Hogan.

Can someone on the social scene match him up with a top shelf GF in Melb if he hasn't got one already 😂

On the last point...

Does his manager point stuff like this out to him though?

Doubt he'd be thinking about all of these aspects.

After many posts of you trying to explain I still don't think anyone has a clue what you meant.

Leave the faceplams alone mate. Try to be a peaceful poster and stop making enemies.

Footy Classified, specifically Hutchy, are convinced he is as good as gone. Didn’t add any credibility to the opinion. Hutchy urging West Coast to be bold and make him walk to the PSD for nothing. Lloydo reckons he won’t leave. The longer this goes on the more of a distraction it’ll be become at finals time.

Hutchy urging West Coast to be bold…for another cheap headline. That bloke really has no moral compass.

Hutchison just wants advertising headlines and Phone Calls on SEN

His knowledge of the game is marginal

That PSD thing is totally bizarre. We paid PICK 2 for the guy 3 years ago! We’ve developed him with the best modern ruckman in the game, had him play in a premiership, given him a great environment with the Brayshaw’s and his teammates, the club deserves compensation if he leaves. I doubt Luke would want what Hutchy describes that for Melbourne, he’s given us a lot and we have given him a lot. I’d be shocked if he wanted to leave, but if he does there’s no way he’s screwing the club that has been so good to him out of a pick or player in trade. Hutchy talks total rubbish.

I hope Luke stays, I think staying at least another two years makes the most sense.

Your first mistake was getting sucked in by Hutchy.

He's nothing but a giant troll who deliberately goes out of his way to bait a headline.

Ask what Paul Salmon what he thinks of hutchy...

Does heading off to play for West Coast for big bucks constitute being bold?

I would have thought it was the other way round. Taking a long term approach with your career and staying at your first club for a lesser remuneration for the sake of team success down the track and greater rewards financially and personally later on is being bold in my view.

Anyone know the Canberra Times' strike rate?

This is in the Canberra Times, article published this afternoon:

"In more good news for the AFL premier, grand final hero Luke Jackson will sign a new deal with Melbourne soon. Jackson, who is contracted until the end of next season, will commit long-term to the Demons.

The West Australian believes his future is in Melbourne and he will be joined by his parents in Victoria."

All true from what I've heard.

His folks have been shopping for property in Melbourne, and "long term" is the phrase being used about his extension.

 

Any updates on this juicy goss LN?

The one thing with Hutchy is that he has pretty good contacts around the footy world. It is well known in the industry that he gets half his stories from Liam Pickering. Being a player manager I wonder if Pickering any inside info?

Just as an aside, Pickering manages Karl Amon.

Dogga strikes me as someone who is too far principled to play those sorts of games, and in any event, why would he want to 'walk' to North, which is where he'd end up based on today's ladder positions.

Lloyd was the only sensible voice on that show re: this issue and sees it from a champion players perspective.

Its a distraction to Dees fans, as was Hogan, but after the Hogan saga, I'm immmune now to this and what will be will be.

Hogan was a 'great hope' for the club. 

Now we have a team full of them, not to mention the top shelf coaching panel.

In terms of the once in a generation sweet spot we have (under 30ish)...

Oliver, Trac, Viney, lever, salem, Fritsch, Sparrow, Brayshaw, Petty, Pickett, Spargo, ANB, Langdon  etc.

Plus the young latent talent pool yet to break into the side.

Plus Goodwin, Yze....

Good luck to Jacko no matter what he does.

I hate to lose him and watch him develop into an superstar over west. 
But given that how late it is in the season and he still hasn’t signed on I’m starting to come to terms with the fact that him leaving is a strong possibility. 
What are peoples thought on how we should try to recruit with the bounty we would have to get if he leaves?

Do we go to the draft with highest pick we can get?This years draft is meant to be full of talls but they can take a few years to develop and we just picked JVR.


Or do we try and pick up a established player that could help us win another flag in this premiership window?

Carlton have Curnow, McKay & De Konig all out of contract next year, if we lose Jacko, I’d be trying very to shake one of those loose with that money.  At that point we could offer the dollars and success.

Carlton could be stretched with the dollars. McKay & Curnow will be RFAs.

McKay and Curnow will be Restricted Free Agents next year so there would be no need to trade.

However, they both seem very committed and passionate coming into a finals then premiership window, playing with mates so not sure why they would leave to join a similarly positioned club.  Money unlikely to be a motivator.

As we  like to think of our players in that way and to forfeit some $, I would be surprised if McKay and Curnow don't feel the same.

Would love a crack at one of those but there would need to be some serious low balling from Carlton to get a look in there. Plenty of time till then though and things can change.

You’re right Dazzle, listening to anything Hutchy says is a bad idea. I certainly don’t believe it, I was just commenting on how bizarre his choice of scuttlebutt is in this instance. It’s very easy to make believable “Jackson is leaving stories” with this dragging out so long, but going straight to “walk to PSD” is really incredibly stupid, even by Hutchy’s low standards.

    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
