Then why doesn't every Victorian kid that wants to come home, say they are open to go to the club that has the most draft capital to offer. These deals are orchestrated well in advance.

And who knows, Jackson may be like Buddy and end up at the club that no one suspected. I haven't been told he's going to Freo.

Well if he lands at Eagles we get pick 2 and maybe a player. That just about guarantees  us a key forward in the draft.

I don't think WC can trade that pick this year?

They can with AFL permission - which would be almost a foregone conclusion.

Bah !!!! Foolishness!! 

Most Sheilas would kill for a night out with Uncle Bitter!!

Just calling women “sheilas” might explain why Uncle Bitter only gets a night out with Uncle Bitter.

Surely West Coast can still feature in all this?

I don’t understand why it is not even been spoken of. His reason is to return to WA. Like Cerra tried to get to us he was more than happy to go to Carlton when it was obvious we couldn’t trade with Freo. 

If we cannot reach a suitable agreement with Freo, then we pick up the phone to Eagles and ask for pick 2/3 and call it a day. 

I think the fact that LJ wants to leave and that staying in Melbourne is not an option has lessened what we will get for him.

Cake and eating it is the metaphor

Money, Premiership and home all delivered by Freo

Why do the hard yards with WCE

We have been so outplayed here it is starting to become laughable

Funny thing is that he may end up at WCE by default

I am still hopeful Luke Jackson will sign a 2 or 3 year contract to win another Premiership with the Demons. Why leave when you have the chance to win another Premiership or more? I under home sickness is a factor but what about loyalty to your team mates?

However, the longer this drags on the less likely this will happen and he will return to Perth. If we are to lose Luke Jackson to either West Coast or Fremantle we need to be fairly compensated.

This means either a good quality player and a first round draft pick or 2 first round draft picks. Remember, it cost us 2 first round draft picks to Adelaide to get Jake Lever so I see that as being the ideal trade deal for us to ask for from either Fremantle or West Coast.

My take on all this Luke Jackson rubbish.

I honestly don't think Luke Jackson is worth more than 600k per yr at the maximum until he proves himself as a consistent player. He is 20 years old and the entitlement is beyond me. Have some balls and take a look at your situation you [censored] [censored]! 

In saying that we do not know the real reason he may want to go home, but let's assume there is nothing urgent such as an ill family member who he'd want to be around.

- He was drafted into a premiership winning team, unlike Freo who have not proven themselves yet, they could absolutely crap it in the finals. He could win another premiership possibly even a third at Melbourne.

- He is being mentored by possibly the best Ruckman in the modern era in Max Gawn. He clearly won't learn the same from a 24 year old Darcy and certainly has so much more to learn from Max.

- If he signs for only an additional 2 years his best years between 22-30yrs old are still in front of him. I mean come on have some perspective, you can take your $1M per year then, I mean he bought a [censored] house at age 20, money is in abundance here.

- From what I've heard and seen he has a good group of friends surrounding him in Melbourne not the least of which are his bloody awesome teammates. So why leave now?

- Moving clubs this early could potentially disrupt his development and career. Idk how it is in football but to me it seems you want some continuity as an AFL player, especially at such a young age and the connection he has built with the club at this point will have been wasted. He needs to remain in this uninterrupted environment until he has some more years under his belt.

With all that said, I'm sure enough of his mentors, managers and advisors with their heads screwed on have pointed out all of these very reasonable takes on his situation and to be frank if he still decides to bail on success at one very good Club for a premature return to home you can't help the kid. Disappointing to say the least.

Scott Thompson 

Jeff Farmer 

Jesse Hogan 

And potentially Luke Jackson 

do the Dees have trouble retaining our interstate talent? 
 

Hoping Jackson stays but if not, let’s reset, demand 2 x 1st rounders ( get Aaron Cadman and Brayden George) and then get a 2nd Ruck/Fwd (like Haydn McLean) on less than 1/2 the money.

No. In fact I think this comment is a bit of an overreaction SONS.

In the 21 year period since Farmer has left we've lost, as you pointed out, 3 other players to back home.

I think if anything that's a fantastic strike rate compared to the likes of Fremantle, Brisbane, GWS and Gold Coast.

Cadman would be the dream get for me.

Problem with that is I don’t see us getting the two first round picks - prepare to be disappointed 

Personally if Fremantle is his preferred I’d rather walk him to the PSD and Norf - why would we accept unders and make one of our main competitors stronger

So we make our main competitors stronger and we walk away with absolutely nothing by walking to the PSD?

I couldn't think of anything worse. There is zero gain from doing that.

Make no mistake, we were happy to let Hogan go.

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
