The Luke Jackson Thread



Recommended Posts

Couldn't help feel a bit sad for the whole saga when i saw how happy Dogga was when we won on Saturday night, you cant question his buy in, it just seems a shame that this is happening.

He seems pretty invested imo.

I genuinely think he hasn't made up his mind and is leaving all the contract talks until the season is finished.

I'd be disappointed if he left, but would understand wholeheartedly as well. We'll get compensated well, but it's still a big loss.

Thought he was good on the weekend. Took some good clunks and was unlucky not to hit the scoreboard.

Whether we like it or not and bias aside, it is a massive thing to have on your shoulders right now. It has to be extremely tough for him at the minute. 

Some of those marks came at very important times.

Yes, he did play well on the weekend, and clearly his best game since the Brisbane win.

Full credit to him. Hopefully he'll play career best footy  in the next 5 weeks.

For a guy who has supposedly already signed a deal with Freo, he seems pretty invested. Was braving the wet at Casey to watch the VFL boys play, has been posting pics of the win on his Insta... I don't know, something doesn't add up.

He could possibly have just 2 games left with the MFC, but he isn't acting like someone who has already checked out.

I'd happily lose Jackson if it makes us more likely to win another flag or 2 in the near future.

It's all about the flags and nothing else.

I feel sorry for you.

Fine, but do you know how much money his manager stands to make from this?

People keep going on about camaraderie, team spirit, personal enjoyment & fulfillment and other airy-fairy things.

God help us (make lots of money).

Why?

I'm cool with it.

 

And I mean a Jackson trade would be all about what it will mean to our flag push. I'd only be getting worked up if we were losing him for nothing.

I'm with faulty on this issue.  Each year there is one winner and 17 also-rans.

Winning premierships is the ultimate measure of real success.  We're not here to [censored] spiders.

Why's that WCW? Yes we shouldn't forget the contributions that players have made but is it unreasonable to put the club first above any emotional attachments and continue with our desire to win?

I feel sorry for someone who rates a flag as the only “something” to be satisfied with and who doesn’t rate anything short of that. 
My comment has nothing even remotely close to the Dogga issue. Nor is it an emotion-based comment. 
I genuinely feel sorry for any Dees fan who has the “Flag or Bust” mentality.

Again, this has NOTHING to do with players.

Yeah for sure, you don't want the bar of success and happiness that high. I will still see this an an enjoyable season if we don't win it. 

Sometimes absolute phrases aren't meant to be absolute. Not putting words in anyone's mouth but it does happen.

Geez you’re damned if you do and you’re damned if you don’t!

Too many times ppl misquote or misinterpret or read between the lines of other people’s comments. And they’re taken to task for it.

So I quote him verbatim, and with zero ambiguity and I’m likewise having to explain. 
He said “it’s all about flags and nothing else” which I took to mean it’s all about flags and nothing else, ergo I feel sorry for him.

Yes he did play well, all game, and its good to see at least a few posters here recognise it. He is still just 20. If he goes, it will be a huge loss, make no mistake - especially with a no 1 ruckman much closer to the end than the beginning. The club well understands  this.

No, I believe Demonstone indicated that the spiders will be spared from his amorous inclinations.

I've just phoned the club and asked if the boys could wear the redback jumper this week in a gesture of support.

One would assume that @Webber might have something to say about this.

One would assume that. Unless told otherwise, perhaps [censored] spiders may be the best way to recover from not winning the flag…

    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
