Ok, I’ll start….

Hi, I’m The Heart Beats True. I like bread and I live in a house. It has windows and a door. When I’m alone I think I should make more friends, but when I’m with people I wish I was alone.

Love it. Sometimes I also think I should make more friends when I'm alone, but then I just go and see what's on the TV.

All those years ago. And was Josh Kennedy a gun then? If that’s the closest and most recent example, I suppose that goes to proving my point.

Completely different scenario.

This idea that 'once he nominates Freo there is nothing we can do and we HAVE to trade with them as if they have us over a barrel is BS. Hard'n up people. 

If Jacko doesn't get exactly what he wants in a trade, so be it. He obviously still loves the dees, so im sure he'll cope just fine if theres no trade. Plenty of players have experienced that.

Im super confident he doesnt want to play at Nth and super confident Nth would 't let him slide by - being a hugely tradeable asset the following year. 

Its up to Freo to convince us to let him go. So what are they going to do about it?

When it was Lever, we had to give up up 2 x firsts. May was pick 5 or so. We have to agree to the deal. 

Tim Kelly nominated West Coast even though Freo had a better draft hand. If players nominate club's these days it is extremely rare they don't get there (unless you're trying to leave Essendon).

He is out of contract. The club will have to try as hard as possible to convince him to stay. If they can't he is gone. It's all about what we can get out of the deal by that point.

Yes. We can technically block a trade and force him to go to the draft. This option has been used three times in my memory.

1. Nick Stevens was denied a trade to Collingwood from Port after Collingwood refused to give up Didak or Prestigiacomo and a draft pick. Carlton picked him up with pick 2 of the preseason draft when the Bulldogs (who had pick 1) could not meet the salary demands Stevens put on himself.

2. Luke Ball was denied a trade from StKilda to Collingwood. Collingwood offered pick 25. A revised trade was Goldsack and pick 30. Both were rejected as inadequate by the Saints. Ball was drafted to Collingwood by pick 30 in the national draft after refusing to speak to any other clubs.

3. Jack Martin was picked up at pick 3 of the preseason draft after the Suns refused the 2 second round picks being offered. They wanted Carlton's pick 9. Martin refused a medical with the Demons and set his salary super high so we wouldn't draft him at pick 2.

Yes but at the time Kennedy wasn't considered a gun in the same way as what Jackson is now. 

Kennedy was indeed an early draft selection, but there was certainly commentary that he was already looking like an early selection bust for Carlton.

Kennedy was a set of steak knives in the deal.

Jackson is the full samurai sword.

Jesus we are quick to turn on our own so drastically.  

Only just the weekend many were praising his performance as an individual.

Next minute people are pretty much are calling him a [censored] for possibly wanting him to go home to his family. Whilst I would be disappointed if he left I would not begrudge him for going home if that was the case.

No ONE even knows what his current circumstance may be. Even if he is missing his family we shouldn't be so quick judge and put the kid down.

For all we know he may just be struggling with home sickness and potentially that's affected his mental health to some degree.

Disappointing to read on here the so called parents are the ones questioning Jackson's character. Times have changed and just because your kids may have adjusted moving out, some don't adjust as easily.

Calm down DD. As a so called parent I wasn’t criticising him personally. Just a general comment about young adults and the improved long distance communication that is available these days. Which increases the chances of him being happy living ‘remotely’. As you say we don’t know anything about his particular circumstances.

Yes but we're given him a lot of games, he's almost never been dropped and he could leave after three years.  Can't blame people for being a bit annoyed

West coasts pick will likely be pick 3 as Norf May get 1 and 2. 
 

I think if LJ isn’t staying we deal exclusively with WCE and their Pick 2/3 and also a KP player.

If Freo really want him, then we use the Eagles as the bargaining chips as it satisfies Doggas supposed desire to get home. 
 

Then we ask for Brayshaw and 2022 first rounder.

Ironically, Josh Kennedy has become the best player that Carlton have drafted in the last 25 years! Lol!

Playing Devils advocate if Freo did not allow us to trade/draft in May, Sparrow and Langdon we may still be waiting for a premiership. I understand the mindset but going by history Fremantle have been pretty good to us (trade wise).

I get all that. But LJ turned a GF

Freo are immediately such a better side with him playing against us. We need decent player(s) in return 

We are still chasing Flags ourselves

Mate, that's in the past. Only Melbourne supporters raise that over and over. Other clubs don't. Do you seriously think Freo will say "he turned a GF so we must get him!" They will consider how he fits into their set up and how much he costs, both contract and trade costs. They look to the future. Try it some time

You don’t think they haven’t watched that 3rd quarter frame by frame?

A standout performance in a GF means a lot. 
I want LJ to play in more MFC Flags. If he goes we must get decent Compensation otherwise our Future doesn’t look so good. 

That is the future sunshine

I didn’t wanna broach this lest I sound like a bitter, resentful parent who’s separated from her son who lives in Europe. I mean, I am. I just don’t wanna sound like it. 😁 

But as you said o_d, they’re living the dream on huge $$$ and still not satisfied. And it’s not like it’s forever; clearly they can relocate once their time at the Club has ended. 

One of my all time favorite posters on Demonland.

Can always rely on you to present a smile, regardless of circumstance.

Well done WCW.

Absolutely, they will be doing a lot of number crunching and pre planning of future players coming through. They have plenty of young talent coming up for contract renewals in the next few years and will also be aware that Darcy and Meek will be a good pair moving forward. They know Jackson won’t come cheap in terms of picks and/or players so will be a fine balance on their part.

In all three cases the player was [censored] off at the club he was leaving. They badly wanted out. LJ has a flag and a rising star,  I just  can’t see him doing this to us.

    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

    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
