Yep, whats all this nonesense about AFL players having to live close to mummy and daddy . Do they talk like this about  young NRL  players??

And stop referring to them as kids. I think its a women thing thats crept in  over recent years.

Theyre young men not kids.

Its not as if Jacksons parents live in a cave in Syria. He can get on  a plane and visit backwater Perth 2 or 3 times a year.  Jackson is the only person eho hasnt commented on his contract.

I bet  he stays.

Very few footballers manage to play at AFL level.  It's their dream job, they're well paid and they're still not happy because they're not "home", when going home means moving from Australia to Australia.

Andrew Brayshaw is currently top 5 in the comp and will be top 2 within 12 months. Freo would never let him go but I would enjoy seeing Freo fans sweat bullets if Jackson signals his intent to leave and Brayshaw is top of Melbourne’s shopping list.

What's with this pressure to return home by young adults to be near family and friends?  Our kids buzzed off to pursue careers and other things and have made new friends wherever they went. And without the sort of money in the bank that AFL players can have (if they have any sense).  They still keep in touch with old friends and family which these days is 1000 times easier than it was only 25 years ago.  Do footy players never grow up?

Yeah, I'm probably a rotten parent.

Luke and his parents should try living half a planet away from one another. Then come back to the “problem” of living in the same country, one 3hr45min flight apart and with a tonne of money.

My mail is he is leaning towards staying and biggest decision relates around length of contract.

The money is not an issue, he knows he will be well paid and the next contract is the big one

I anticipate a 2 year extension 

Said earlier, whats holding him up is how long to sign for.

And as I alluded to earlier, with video-phone calls and text messaging, keeping in touch these days is a breeze.  I am in contact with my son who lives overseas more than I did with my own parents when I lived in the same city as them.  And when I lived oevrseas, it was the weekly aerogramme (for those old enough to know what that was).

Personally I would not want to play with someone who I might be playing against in the GF the following year. As soon as he signs on with another club he shouldn't play for us again imo

We are effectively doing it now anyway, part of the game. We’re not alone, Swans lost Hewett and Dawson last year.

The AFL podcast this morning had Freo way ahead of WCE with a 'lure' for Jackson.

Hate to pass on some depressing info. 

  • Freo do not have a 2nd or 3rd round pick this year.  Currently they have #15 and #71.
  • For future picks they can only trade out their first round pick if they have a pick in every other round (either their natural pick or a traded in pick).  This reduces flexibility to use any 2023 draft currency.
  • They have signed up every player worth trading for.

Lets hope Jackson's friendship with Nic Nat is strong and Jackson picks WCE should he leave the dees.

Not necessarily. The club can refuse a trade and either force a signature or pre-season draft where he ends up at North.

I'd want Lobb and a top 10 pick as a BASE. If Freo wants a quick swap then can give us Brayshaw.

This'll be the second KPF Freo would have taken after Hogan. I say they get absolutely [censored] and we play hard ball if Jackson doesn't want to stay.

I can handle Jackson playing a year or 2 at North if it means we have to decline Peter Bell's inevitable final offer of a second round draft pick and Ethan Hughes thrown in as a sweetener for LJ.

He's going to be horrid to deal with if history is any guide.

‘Edited Reason: Nonsense’ 

Was that to remove or add?

 

Seriously, people, can we just calm down with the speculation on character until you know what he actually will do. He is an absolute gun and this is what happens to all clubs when you have someone like this.

You waited for 75 pages to finally tell us this? What’s wrong with you man? We’ve already sold him off.

Agree. AFL players are seemingly the only professional athletes on the planet who can't cope with a move away from home at 18. I've never seen or heard of an NFL, NBA or football (soccer) player leave a club because they're homesick.  

Great post.

No he won't. He won't be better than Petracca and Oliver for starters. I'm not saying there's no upside.

Eagles can't trade their first rounder this year though (unless they trade in another one or get special permission).

Either way, the goss is it'll be Freo and the club at this stage have said the deal will need to involved Andrew Brayshaw.

It's sounding like he's gone.

There is no way Freo give up Brayshaw in a trade for Jackson

Name one (modern day) player who has flourished after leaving Melbourne, as a big name....

Farmer? Nope

Hogan? Nope

Howe? Mebbe

Watts? Don't make me cry

Simmonds? Nope

Farmer played 118 games in 6 years for 259 goals at Melbourne. 

He played 131 in 6 years for 224 goals for Fremantle.

He was as good for them as he was for us. A remarkable player that you aren't doing justice to

You know this or just speculate ? I say the latter

Speculation of course. Based on snippets from Brayshaw, Goodwin, Richardson and Gus and Gawny podcast. Which is a ton better than Barrett ect who base their speculation on “ Post bye, hasn’t signed yet. His gone.”

Although in our case, we (the parents) ran away from home.

    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
