Trac letting Darcy know that next year he’ll be Freo’s number 2 Ruckman to a guy who has more flags than the entire Freo list combined. 

Interesting that Darcy didn’t want any part of the aggro against him, after the back tap on Tracc.

Noticed that! 

Players would know Trac is one of the fairest players going around, who rarely wastes his energy agitating. 

It was almost like Darcy had conceded “yeah I probably shouldn’t have done that”

Trac is also an absolute beast. i wouldn't be surprised if despite his size. Darcy was a little bit intimidated.

Disappointing if he is just running after the money. I guess it's of course his choice.

Based on last night's performance Freo are really far off being a contender.

How good was it seeing Melksham pull that jumper down last night? Arrogant supporters acting like it’s a done deal.

If he has to go I hope he goes to the Eagles now, and plays a blinder in every Derby.

Why is everyone slamming this? Waving a Freo jumper with Jackson no.6. Its clearly fake so what did they expect?

You do know where his family and mates live, don’t you?

I never buy the narrative of 'homesick', FFS we live in 2022 not 1970. You are just a 3 hour flight from home. Not saying it is not a contributing factor but most definitely the money weighs more into the decision.

The accepted view seems to be that he would stay a couple of years if no deal can be done. It is an opportunity for him to go home and play for the club he barracked for.

IMO we have been pragmatic and started looking at what we can get out of it, rather than keep him for a couple of years and go through all of this again for another year.

We can really  plug some list holes if we are smart.

Didn't he barrack for the Weagles? I thought his idol was Nic Nat

That's just complete guesswork otherwise why use qualifiers like "at a minimum..." and "plus" twice.

You're a clown, Jay. At least stick to the fee of 850k or the term of six years.

Jay Clark clearly doesn't realise that, if you do a backflip, you end up exactly where you started from.

In other words, your position has not changed.

If you're reading this Jay, don't feel too bad.  It's a very common mistake among "journalists".

For better or worse loyalty is not a thing to the kids coming through these days. They grow up watching NBA & NFL where players, the champions too, regularly change sides. 

The difference being that in the NFL or NBA top draft picks usually play at the very least 5 or 6 years with the teams that picks them.

I suppose when Ron went to Carlton he wasnt actually a kid.

Will be really interesting to see how Jackson goes at Freo next year when he doesn’t have Gawn mentoring him. Jackson is still learning the craft and this is a massive thing in my eyes where u learn from the best. 

Our team is far superior to Freo and with Jackson going on big money (by all reports) will come with massive pressure to perform. He will be the no1 ruck i assume where as he is no2 now  so less pressure  

Good luck with feral Freo supporters Jacko.

These days? This has been going on well past this generation. Let's not make out that it's today's issue. For every Luke Jackson there's a Clayton Oliver, Petracca and Brayshaw who've pledge their loyalty to this club. Not counting other players from other clubs who've done the same.

Jeff White, Ron Barrasi, Tony Lockett, Kelvin Templeton, Jeff Farmer, Gerard Healy.. I can keep going?

Peter Bell never learns. I sent him an email about the Fremantle acquisition of Hogan and he replied that they thought they had a really good player. They got next to nothing out of Hogan despite him growing up a Freo fan. Doesn’t the Jackson situation look kind of similar?

The only people commenting on it are flogmantle nuffies and e-grade journos who are desperate for things to write about.

    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
