"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 TRADING CHRONICLES 2021 by Whispering Jack

    MUCH ADO ABOUT NOT MUCH The 2021 Free Agency and Trade Periods were billed by Fox Footy as promising a “period like no other and that certainly proved correct but not for the reasons that Network spin suggested when promoting its daily program of news from the trade desk. The truth is that the football public has endured an uneventful and forgettable fortnight unless you perhaps, happen to be a Carlton or a Hawthorn fan. The Blues managed to pick up the biggest name of the trade peri

    THE APPRENTICE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne Next Generation Academy prospect Mac Andrew has had a meteoric rise in the eyes of many track watchers who follow the fortunes of football talent at the elite level. So much so that under the AFL's new rules which prohibit clubs from matching bids on their NGA players within the first 20 selections, there’s a widely held perception that Andrew is falling out of the club’s grasp.   Despite being buoyed by the Demons’ drought-breaking premiership, some fans are showing their a

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition th

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o
