Ok, I’ll start….

Hi, I’m The Heart Beats True. I like bread and I live in a house. It has windows and a door. When I’m alone I think I should make more friends, but when I’m with people I wish I was alone.

Love it. Sometimes I also think I should make more friends when I'm alone, but then I just go and see what's on the TV.

All those years ago. And was Josh Kennedy a gun then? If that’s the closest and most recent example, I suppose that goes to proving my point.

Completely different scenario.

This idea that 'once he nominates Freo there is nothing we can do and we HAVE to trade with them as if they have us over a barrel is BS. Hard'n up people. 

If Jacko doesn't get exactly what he wants in a trade, so be it. He obviously still loves the dees, so im sure he'll cope just fine if theres no trade. Plenty of players have experienced that.

Im super confident he doesnt want to play at Nth and super confident Nth would 't let him slide by - being a hugely tradeable asset the following year. 

Its up to Freo to convince us to let him go. So what are they going to do about it?

When it was Lever, we had to give up up 2 x firsts. May was pick 5 or so. We have to agree to the deal. 

Tim Kelly nominated West Coast even though Freo had a better draft hand. If players nominate club's these days it is extremely rare they don't get there (unless you're trying to leave Essendon).

He is out of contract. The club will have to try as hard as possible to convince him to stay. If they can't he is gone. It's all about what we can get out of the deal by that point.

Yes. We can technically block a trade and force him to go to the draft. This option has been used three times in my memory.

1. Nick Stevens was denied a trade to Collingwood from Port after Collingwood refused to give up Didak or Prestigiacomo and a draft pick. Carlton picked him up with pick 2 of the preseason draft when the Bulldogs (who had pick 1) could not meet the salary demands Stevens put on himself.

2. Luke Ball was denied a trade from StKilda to Collingwood. Collingwood offered pick 25. A revised trade was Goldsack and pick 30. Both were rejected as inadequate by the Saints. Ball was drafted to Collingwood by pick 30 in the national draft after refusing to speak to any other clubs.

3. Jack Martin was picked up at pick 3 of the preseason draft after the Suns refused the 2 second round picks being offered. They wanted Carlton's pick 9. Martin refused a medical with the Demons and set his salary super high so we wouldn't draft him at pick 2.

Yes but at the time Kennedy wasn't considered a gun in the same way as what Jackson is now. 

Kennedy was indeed an early draft selection, but there was certainly commentary that he was already looking like an early selection bust for Carlton.

Kennedy was a set of steak knives in the deal.

Jackson is the full samurai sword.

Jesus we are quick to turn on our own so drastically.  

Only just the weekend many were praising his performance as an individual.

Next minute people are pretty much are calling him a [censored] for possibly wanting him to go home to his family. Whilst I would be disappointed if he left I would not begrudge him for going home if that was the case.

No ONE even knows what his current circumstance may be. Even if he is missing his family we shouldn't be so quick judge and put the kid down.

For all we know he may just be struggling with home sickness and potentially that's affected his mental health to some degree.

Disappointing to read on here the so called parents are the ones questioning Jackson's character. Times have changed and just because your kids may have adjusted moving out, some don't adjust as easily.

Calm down DD. As a so called parent I wasn’t criticising him personally. Just a general comment about young adults and the improved long distance communication that is available these days. Which increases the chances of him being happy living ‘remotely’. As you say we don’t know anything about his particular circumstances.

Yes but we're given him a lot of games, he's almost never been dropped and he could leave after three years.  Can't blame people for being a bit annoyed

West coasts pick will likely be pick 3 as Norf May get 1 and 2. 
 

I think if LJ isn’t staying we deal exclusively with WCE and their Pick 2/3 and also a KP player.

If Freo really want him, then we use the Eagles as the bargaining chips as it satisfies Doggas supposed desire to get home. 
 

Then we ask for Brayshaw and 2022 first rounder.

Ironically, Josh Kennedy has become the best player that Carlton have drafted in the last 25 years! Lol!

Playing Devils advocate if Freo did not allow us to trade/draft in May, Sparrow and Langdon we may still be waiting for a premiership. I understand the mindset but going by history Fremantle have been pretty good to us (trade wise).

I get all that. But LJ turned a GF

Freo are immediately such a better side with him playing against us. We need decent player(s) in return 

We are still chasing Flags ourselves

Mate, that's in the past. Only Melbourne supporters raise that over and over. Other clubs don't. Do you seriously think Freo will say "he turned a GF so we must get him!" They will consider how he fits into their set up and how much he costs, both contract and trade costs. They look to the future. Try it some time

Jackson to Freo would almost shift the balance of power.

Minimum we should ask for is Andrew Brayshaw. I think we should keep him keep the club tight nit.

You don’t think they haven’t watched that 3rd quarter frame by frame?

A standout performance in a GF means a lot. 
I want LJ to play in more MFC Flags. If he goes we must get decent Compensation otherwise our Future doesn’t look so good. 

That is the future sunshine

Right? 
I didn’t wanna broach this lest I sound like a bitter, resentful parent who’s separated from her son who lives in Europe. I mean, I am. I just don’t wanna sound like it. 😁 

But as you said o_d, they’re living the dream on huge $$$ and still not satisfied. And it’s not like it’s forever; clearly they can relocate once their time at the Club has ended. 

One of my all time favorite posters on Demonland.

Can always rely on you to present a smile, regardless of circumstance.

Well done WCW.

Absolutely, they will be doing a lot of number crunching and pre planning of future players coming through. They have plenty of young talent coming up for contract renewals in the next few years and will also be aware that Darcy and Meek will be a good pair moving forward. They know Jackson won’t come cheap in terms of picks and/or players so will be a fine balance on their part.

In all three cases the player was [censored] off at the club he was leaving. They badly wanted out. LJ has a flag and a rising star,  I just  can’t see him doing this to us.

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    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

    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

    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

    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
