The Luke Jackson Thread

To split pick 2/3 they need another team to have 2x first round picks in 2022 . Right now, there is not a team that has the required draft hand.

WCE does not need to split their 2022 first for two 2022 firsts to the same team! 

There are any number of combos of 2022 and 2023 picks with one or more clubs to get WCE two 2022 first so they can trade one and use one.

Speculation only (rare for this site) but my guess is Jackson’s mgmt have asked Freo & Melb to see if a suitable trade could be organised - if the two parties are too far apart he’ll sign a short term contract with Melbourne. No way his manager will want to put him into a scenario where there is any talk of Melbourne possibly pushing him to the draft. 

That could explain why there has been a long delay from Jackson as Freo take an eternity to organise anything since Bell landed there. The spotlight is firmly on Gus and Jackson since Clarry signed. Given a choice I'd want to keep Luke. A little annoyed with Brayshaw as there is no go home factor. Honestly don't want to pay overs to keep Gus. Midfielders and Halfback/wingers can be replaced, but Luke is unique. I want to see us in a few years time having Luke and Jeff White's son playing in tandem with Maxie up forward resting.

I feel like we need to put this in the thread title to save you from having to mention it every 3 pages.

TBF, LH has a point about the other options available to them - Just me personally I can't see it happening.

An acquaintance here in Perth who’s a WC supporter told me WC stopped tanking because they are now out of the running to get Jackson. I take that with a grain of salt but who knows what goes on.

They’ve stopped tanking and have reverted to just being regulation garbage.

well if that is the case expect it to be leaked on wednesday 😁

I know you were joking, I don't think it will be leaked, whenever it happens. Clarry's wasn't. And I think the reason we are where we are re: media speculation is because they don't have a clue, and are assuming he is leaving because it's later in the year.

All we can say for certain is that no Gus and Gawny podcast this week means no announcement of Gus re-signing until at least next week 😄

Was Adam Cerra out of contract last year when he found his way to Carlton? May be some parallels with Freo placing a high value on him which is why he didn't end up coming to us.

If it was the case he was out of contract, then clearly the destination clubs still find a way to satisfy the current club to ensure the deal happens. 

Cerra was absolutely out of contract last year.

When an out of contract player nominates his club of choice, the out of contract player gets to his club of choice.

It's when the on-contract wantaway players such as Papley try to move clubs. That doesn't always proceed.

I'm almost the opposite in my thinking- Gus has shown conclusively that he is super versatile and gives us quality wherever he plays. Sure he's not Trac or Clarry but his true value would only be seen if he was to leave I think. 

Jackson will be a great player but who knows if he will reach his full potential. Jesse Hogan was looking like he would be the best player in the comp but personal issues impacted him. Body Grundy is a great ruckman but it doesn't translate into wins for the pies.  I'd hate to sell the farm to keep Jackson and push other very good players out in the process. We won on the weekend without a pure ruck.

Wasn’t it reported his club of choice was Melbourne but due to Melbourne not being close to getting a deal done with Freo for him he pivoted his choice to Carlton (whom Freo could get a deal done with)?

Believe so. Steven May was off to Collingwood before we got in when they couldn't get it done. Happens plenty of times.

Thanks SWYL hopefully your mail is accurate

I've said this a number of times but I struggle to see any compelling reason for any of our players to leave other than if they are driven by dollars only - naturally that's important but it is not the main driver for most young guys. For them it would be playing alongside good mates and winning. The money decisions are best left to when they have one good contract left

Freo won’t give up their players. They have the leverage if Jackson wants to leave. Best we could do would be to seek out Brodie or Acres (both out of contract) as part of a swap plus picks our way. And I’m not sure either even get a gig in our midfield. I hope Jackson stays. I can’t see any workable trade that helps us. We will be bent over. On the upside, if he doesn’t want to be a demon let’s get in someone who does. We don’t actually know if he wants out though. We can only deduce that he doesn’t want in by the fact he hasn’t signed yet.

Brodie or Acres 🤣🤣🤣

If it's any consolation,  one of Luke's closest mates Luke Travers was drafted into the NBA last week. So he won't be seeing much of him should he want to return to Perth.

    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

    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

    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
