The Luke Jackson Thread



Recommended Posts

I hope SWYL doesn't read this post.

He thinks we only won the flag because Jackson played the best quarter of footy in living memory, and that he's going to be the best player of all time.

On a side note, Nathan Buckley on SEN has urged us to ask for Griffen Logue  in return and thinks he could significantly improve our forward line next year.

We all loved that period in the Grand Final and not every player can produce that. I don't want to see him go because I do think he will be something special but we do have to be honest: How often do we see the flash in the pan performance that a club gets sucked in to and it turns out to be a total bust of a decision? I'm not saying this will definitely happen but there is a chance that it could. Selling while the stock is high wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.

100% on board with this.

It's so easy to be romanticised by the brief, bright sparks. 

Don't get me wrong, Dogga  may very well develop into what he is being touted as, but he may not - and in any event it's all moot, because if he wants to go home and this is not where his heart is, or we have to throw everything we have to keep him, which will mean we're missing $$$ to keep some of the other pieces of the puzzle, then it's not worth it. It creates friction in the team, and leads to the kind of mentality on show by May earlier this year. Everyone has a role, and everyone needs to play that role, week in and out to make this dynasty we speak of. 

We're not far off a perfect side. Aside from smarter delivery i50, we need to look for a forward or two, or at least someone who can play up forward, like Logue.

If you need an example of an outstanding performance by a player that subsequently doesn't go on to deliver what was then expected, look no further than Weid in a final a few years ago.

Good point.

I genuinely thought Weideman was going to be the one of the best up and coming forwards in the game after that 2018 finals series..

I see that BBP is using my name in a post again. I have him on ignore so I only see his odd ramblings sporadically. 
The poor boy must have been sitting on the can during the 3rd Quarter of the GF and missed the complete and utter obliteration of the Bulldogs. He will not give LJ any credit for that work. Sad really, but not something i lose any sleep over. 
Now if Luke decides to go home I will be disappointed, but it’s not the first time players have left us. We will have a plan B in place by now. 
Get the maximum returns for a 20 year old, who is yet to reach anything like his potential. Screw the Bastards as hard as we can and get talent back this way. 
 

and please BBP do not use my name without prior permission

You are not worthy

Why does everyone on here care if he goes.He had an influence in one fantastic quarter of the final and not much since then.I would rather have jack watts,he could run like the wind 6.5 tall could mark and kick.None which i have seen from jackson this season.By the time he reachs his so called potential we will have won 3 or 4 flags while he suffers in a Freo rebuild

Can confirm Mel and Steve have moved into the Perth home that Jackson recently purchased. Make of this what you will… 

I can also confirm that information as I was driving the furniture removal truck. 
 

I cannot disclose the contents of the truck because Luke made me sign an NDA.

Surely you don’t buy a house then move your parents in with you at age 20…

Is this a good sign?

It is my understanding, although not yet confirmed, that Mel had corn flakes for breakfast this morning. Obviously has large ramifications for the developing trade situation, and I will report back as this story unfolds.

Your source is different to mine. Since moving to a more affluent suburb, Mel was seen ordering bircher muesli and a soy latte at the local cafe. ET, maybe able to shed more light.

The important part in all this is the fibre in the diet.

I firmly believe Luke is going, but isn’t it funny how a meeting with player x means player y is not only leaving, but also going to a specific club? If LJ was going to the Eagles would we not have met with Brodie? I’m confused.

    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
