Is that the same player that stuffed the club around in 2022 with his indecision, his mid season interview with Freo behind the clubs back as confirmed by Alan Richardson via SEN, the media circus he created and the phoning in of the 2022 finals series.

He will cop Tom Scully boos -circa 2012 MCG.

There was no indecision. He was always going. We have a football industry where culture dictates you can’t declare your intentions in-season so any player leaving must “stuff their club around”, there’s no other way.

Yeah, I get that and there might be a subtle difference here, but I have often seen Steve May get cranky with his team mates out on the feild too.  In a sense, I think they are both just demanding high standards of their team mates in their respective positions and the important skills and work ethics required for their positions.  I do sense from the interview that Jessie is a bit more mature now, given his footy/life journey and that he's now 27, not 17.

I wouldn't be chasing Jessie hard, but if we could get him for the right price at the right time, I think he could be an important mature body to bridge between BBB/T Mac and JVR, Jefferson and Co.  His body and current form is stacking up, I think he'd be more than just depth and could be an important cog in another premiership team.

Perhaps, Balls. But I just don't see Jesse fitting in well in Melb town anymore.

Steven May is multiple AA and has been arguably the best full back in the game for about 4 years. He's earned the right to be demanding of his teamates (not starting fights in French eateries though).

What player in the game wouldn't take instruction from a cranky May over cranky Hogan?

Hogan has always had patches where he showed immense talent, and he's now showing a little consistency. Good on him.

An interesting hypothetical for him to return to the Dees, but I don't see enough positives. Once bitten and all that

I agree, loved hogan but there isn't enough positives there. He oozes talent but doesn't work hard enough for it. 
He doesn't have it and what it is is what Trac, Oliver and Gus have. That unwavering work ethic.

That's how you get to be elite.

Build the great man a statue outside of our new complex in Caufield.

I'll even come from Adelaide to unveil it to the masses.

Brisbane look a bit listless today. Not good. 

Agree. No intensity from either team. Jackson didn’t do too bad in that quarter but he hasn’t many helping him up front.

Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    POSTGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    After a very wasteful first half of footy the Demons ended up cruising to a clinical victory over the Saints by 38 points at the MCG and ultimately reclaimed a coveted spot in the Top 4.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.
