The Luke Jackson Thread



Recommended Posts

7 minutes ago, goodwindees said:

My very strong mail, and it won’t come as any surprise, is that Jackson will be playing in WA next year.  The Club even offered to move his family to Melbourne recently and it was rejected.

Thank you for passing on your mail as always 

Was holding out hope, but that's that.....Hoperfully we get plenty in return.

The Club is clearly aware of his desire to go home, and realise it’s extremely likely, however, at this point it is far too early to concede and start talking trade details. The Club will not give up in their quest to retain him, however, they realise they’re up against it.

The league badly needs tampering rules. 
 

Contracts should be sorted in the off-season. 

I don’t begrudge Jacko going home. I do dislike that he’s having to deal with all of this in season.

If we keep Gus it will ease the pain a bit - I just don't want to get screwed on a trade though, hopefully Freo realise they're going to have to make the trade work not just expect they can get him to nominate, offer a late teens pick or two and say "take it or leave it"

2 first rounders, Josh Treacy and Lloyd Meek for a pair of 3rds back.

Sign Dan McStay with the bonus cap space.

Trade the future Freo pick for Brisbane’s first.

Package the 2 firsts to move up and back, ideally end up with something like picks <10 and 25.

Get a midfielder and rebuild the forward line with some combination of Gawn/Meek, McStay, Treacy, JVR in the post Brown and T Mc world (which is imminent)

McStay is going to the Pies for overs. He will upset our salary cap.

I think the play has to be for Taylor Walker whilst JVR is blooded. Walker will come on the cheap and will be dead dog hungry for some silverware.

The league needs a rule that draftees need to sign a minimum 5 years. It’s pathetic that we get this kid and he’s gone after 3 years. 
 

Not sure how he gets to Freo though. I’d play hardball and deal exclusively with WCE for their Pick 2/3 and a top 10 player

If he leaves I’ll never forgive him for leaving us when he could have been part of long term success. He could have been drafted to the Suns and really struggled having to be the number 1 guy. He’s benefited greatly from the experience of those around him, and the opportunity that gave him to have success. We’ve undoubtedly increased his value more than he’s increased ours in terms of his next contract. Would a new 3 year contract have killed him? He’d be 25 and still able to go home on a big 5-7 year contract.

He will be reminded by me at every Melbourne game that I support the Demons, and if you turn your back on the family you have to deal with the consequences.

We need to start realising that Perth kids always want to go home. I knew this would happen when we signed him. The very reason we chose Watts over NicNat. He sold this story about having an Uncle in Melbourne and how he’d been here for Basketball etc. no doubt the COVID years have had an impact, but the lure of home is strong for West Aussies. It’s buyer beware stuff

Agree with this. If he departs end of this year, no invite to the premiership reunion, and will be remembered as having character only marginally above Scully’s

Stay 2 more years, then he be free to do what he wants, with everyone’s blessing.

BTW I love the kid but if bucket loads of money are to be thrown at him for performances like tonight then it's a risk.

If what is being said is true. I don’t think it’s going to be what’s being reported. Freo will be silly giving him anything more than 4 years.

note with interest that you say 'back in wa' not with freo @goodwindees - i presume that means meth coke are very much still in the mix, which suits us more

we won't get mcstay @DeeSpencer so forget that - he's 100% off to the filth, and i personally wouldn't want him anyway; better options out there for $3m of cap space over the next 5 years

if it's freo i'd want meek and logue as part of the deals, plus two first rounders

it's meth coke i want that first round pick in 2022 and would want 2023, but know that we weren't going to get it

The McStay money is surely not more than what we budgeted for Jackson. Once Jacko makes his call we can get in the race for him. 

Walker can’t pinch hit in the ruck, can’t chase and tackle, doesn’t crash packs. Doesn’t suit our system. 

McStay is the kind of forward we need that goes with a 2nd ruck and Fritsch, plus one of the older guys until a young option develops.

If he wants to leave on good terms and do the right thing by us he should go the Eagles. they have the currency to facilitate a trade which will properly compensate us. Freo don't

If he selects Freo and insists we deal with them , I'll not be impressed

Name them? That’s market rate for a very solid CHF in the mold of Tommy Mc but with healthy feet. 
 

I have no desire for Logue unless we think Petty is our future up forward and there’s no indication of that.

logue has been very good forward for freo since they moved him there - i reckon he's got more upside than you

mcstay doesn't impact contests like tommy mac

oh, and in terms of naming them, free agents this year and players who'll go for the same for a new contract at another club who i would take over mcstay - amon from the pear, taranto from gw$

not to mention investing that money in keeping sparrow, jordon, pickett, rivers, bowey over the same time period and spending the $3m across multiple players already on our list

McStay is overrated and will just add to the list of forward woes. Walker can play the roaming CHF role very effectively.

I wonder if Lloyd Meek will come into calculations?

203cm 106kg ruckman who apparently has shown promises as a ruckman at senior level. Wins big disposal numbers at WAFL level it seems.

I only ask as I have legitimately only watched him once and that was round 1 last year at the G where I thought he held up well against Gawn for a first gamer.

Anyone know much more about him?

    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
