What a brilliant deal that was. 

Even funnier when you consider that the Crows spent pick 10 (along with another 1st round pick) on a 29-year-old Bryce Gibbs!

Gee, Max is good. Love him as our captain.

Exactly and why wouldn't any young aspiring ruck want to stick with him - and for that matter why would you give up the opportunity to play alongside Trac, Clarry and Gus (amongst others) every week 

I've said it before but so far LJ has said zero about his intentions - it is the feral media (BT is the absolute worst - what a complete [censored] of a human being he is) that keep suggesting he wants to go back to Perth 

Until I hear it from Luke I still don't know why he'd do that - a lot of people on here might look a bit silly buying into the speculation (a bit like the Gus situation)

Oh man, every time I start to concede he’s as good as gone, something like this pops up and the sliver of hope returns. 😑

Honestly what else is Max going to say when asked about Jackson and his contract?

Well if Max was confident he was going he wouldn't be stupid enough to say those things he would just say nothing - sounds like he hasn't made a decision to me 

Does not mean he will want an extension but it suggests to me he hasn't made a clear decision either way yet

The same as everyone else and say he isn't sure, instead he did what Max does and say Max things. Good on him.

It's highly unlikely that LJ would nominate for the pre-season draft ... can't see it

He's coming off a flag, is well liked, we want to keep him and would pay him well.  And he's certainly not disgruntled with the club

It can't be assumed that North or the Eagles are prepared to pay big money on spec.  Their offers may be about the same as what our offer is ($$$'s per annum over X amount of years)

So if the big offer is from Freo only (which seems more likely) then we either get a deal done with them or he'll stay for at least 2 years

But Freo might do everything possible to get a deal done

I can see the club winning either way ... we get lots back for LJ or he stays

how do you know that?

I don’t know for certain. I meant value in terms of money being offered to him. Lots of reports that Freo are offering  $950-1mil. Can’t see us offering anywhere near that money and I don’t want us to either. That would have him in the same pay bracket as Trac and Oliver and probably a fair bit ahead of Max, he hasn’t earned that sort of contract in my opinion.

I don't think that's in Max's character to say nothing. Max is going to say exactly what he said here. I don't think Max knows either way or anymore than we all know to be honest.

yeah, yeah.   don't believe a word you read in the press.  all they are interested in is clicks and audience share.  and stirring the pot is their schtick.   tell a lie enough times and it becomes the truth.

Mundy had another year in him, nothing surer that this is the first move in the clearing of teh decks to fit Jackson in. Wonder how happy the playing group in Freo is that potentially much like players are going to be forced out to accommodate 1 player.

Was leading disposal winner on Friday. This guy is ageless. Could go another season easily as they are on the way up.. More valuable than Fyfe at this stage of their careers ATM.

What is of interest is that Freo would be best served by retaining their 1st round picks for a couple of years and then chasing Jackson. In particular they'd  be well served by adding more key forward options to add to Amiss.

But a bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush so FOMO means if he says he wants to play for them they'll want him now.

Max is just calming the waters for the rest of the season to make sure Jackson can play his best footy.

If he does go we can surely trust that our current list management team will already have preferred options for the deal and in particular for a replacement second ruck/forward and they'll have circa 700k-800k to play to use part of for the right option ie Amarty or Maclean from Swans as an example.

Just don’t tell the majority of Demonland posters who banged on for 2 seasons what a horrible result it was for us. 
We basically got two gun key defenders which made up a third of our premiership defense, for pick 10. A bargain.

Playing under Gawn is the best apprenticeship any young ruckman can hope for and the softest introduction to AFL. 
The grass is definitely far less green when you’re expected to be a star recruit at 21 and your only support is another young ruckman who is trying to make a name for themselves. It’s not going to be easy for Jackson to try and take time in the ruck from Darcy. Can’t see him being as generous as Max was in a grand final.

He could have played the straight bat and said he didnt know and leaves those things to the football department. The fact he said what he did is the most positive thing we have heard since this all began

From the mouth of Maxy Gawnlow.
 
 
"Luke's a talent and he's got every right, as every player does, to look at any offer that's coming his way, I'm pretty confident he's going to be a Melbourne player still and I know that's very far from what the consensus is out in the media."
 
So much for all that banter on Fox Friday night.
 
Amen
