    Well he has history.

    I'm sure it was reported he got involved in a Perth night club dust up just after the GF (separate to the one that the Dees and Dogs reportedly got into) 

    Got a source for this kind of stuff? Only thing I remember being reported was that he was denied entry (along with a group of mates) to a club and then police came along and they all had a chat. No mention of a 'dust up'. Happy to see your info, but would probably think twice about making up stuff like this if it isn't factual.

    Don't get me wrong, i appreciate all he did in our Premiership season.  Last season though he seemed to have very little impact....in fact he went backwards imo.

    He's only just turned 21, I think we sometimes forget that given how quickly he burst onto the scene, and it seemed clear this year he was battling injury/soreness as the year went on.

    As for being childish with the mum insults, it was said tongue in cheek...

    Fair enough, but you've probably noticed many others are seemingly still carrying the intense hurt at Luke's Mum daring to thank the club on the internet and have said she's "fair game".

    i don't think he has the skills/craft to be an elite player wherever placed on the field.  Contributing will not be enough given his pay packet

    If i actually posted any of what you quoted it would have been from 2021....2022 he was super disappointing...

     Pre-season this year to be fair, but you definitely held a different opinion of him before it became clear he would leave.

    Quit clutching your pearls.

    When you say something publicly, as she did, you open yourself up to the conversation.

    I wouldn’t say anything about Weed’s mum. Why? Because she didn’t put herself in the conversation by commenting publicly. See how it works?

    AH yes, I see how it works in your world - Keep your mouth shut, even if you're saying absolutely nothing negative, otherwise you're fair game for anonymous people on the internet. Sounds cool mate.

    .What annoys me the most is the lack of comment from the club. We are all grown ups. Tell us what is happening or lack of it. Because of lack of info I get the feeling that they don't want to tell us the bad news which is that it is decade off if ever. Why the secrecy?  I just don't get it.

     

    Possibly a bit gun shy after the Yarra Park debacle...

    I feel like his mum is fair game. She waded into this with her ill judged Facebook comment on the day he effectively resigned, not when he was traded.

    Yeah, how dare she thank the club and the supporters and be happy to have her son back in the same state as her.

    Saying a players Mum is "fair game" says more about you than her tbh.

    Luke i predict will not live up to Freo's expectations at all this year.   He will have some good moments, but will frustrate the coach/supporters/players by chasing the ball around the park.  He is not going to be a superstar of the competition, will just be happy just chasing that ball.

    He often plays like a suburban footballer who shows little respect to positioning or his craft.

    Will be a massive bust for Freo, they will expect big things from him given his pricetag, i think he will falter under the expectation.  By end of season i expect he will be under immense pressure.

    His mum will then tell him none of that matters...as long as he is a good person.

    Not sour grapes at all hey...

      Remind me which poster made the following comments:

    "Then there is Jackson, who is also super important to our future success."

    "Luke Jackson may be the answer in the ruck.  He is like another midfielder when the ball hits the ground and we look more dynamic with him in there"

    Helped us win a premiership and was a popular teammate, so I don't really get the angst some seem to have, and certainly think references to his mother are childish at best.

    Look 'Nev' you are probably right...and as you said before lets wait and see what happens when we get a location.

    ...but the delay may mean a lot of funds have dried up.

    We have how long now to sort out a location, probably since we could no longer train at the 'G' and that's a long time.

    Yep totally with you on that. I'm a fan of what the current board and admin have been able to achieve overall, but this will hang over them until they get it done. Once we (hopefully) have a location and a plan, if the government don't stump up decent funds then I'll join you in the protest.

    That is the problem - it has all been 'stop gap'.  Nothing of any substance.

    Now that government distractions have passed (covid, election) there are no excuses for not announcing the plan including location to gt funding.  Other clubs seem to have their act together sufficiently to get necessary approvals (eg community, LGA, etc) and funding. 

    If they haven't found a location by now we may as sell forget it happening.

    I'm not quite at the 'forget it' stage yet, and I understand the complications around making announcements, but I'm definitely with you in the frustration around finding/settling on a location Luci (if that is the problem, which it feels like it is).

    This one's not a conspiracy 'Nev'...

    ...I just fail to understand how a club that pioneered football, then pioneered women's football in the AFL is not getting anything (well a pittance) where a club who didn't want anything to do with womens football now gets funding to upgrade facilities and their pitch was based on the women's game.

    Because we haven't got a location.

    Box Hill just got a $6mill upgrade for a VFL ground that doesn't need an upgrade...go figure.

    For whatever reason we don't seem to be selling the right story.

    I'm holding fire on all these kinds of conspiracies until I see what support we get once we have an actual location locked in. IMO we've had pretty decent support from the government given it's been money for stop gaps.

    Very little chance of getting a favour from a labor government in relation to facilities around Yarra park. 
    Andrews  has a habit of endorsing funding around labor or swing districts. There is no political benefit for him to back a MFC development 

    I mean, they gave us $2 million just to make Gosch's bigger so I think you're peddling agendas rather than facts here.

    Then even further around the corner is Fishermans bend and plenty of space.

    Bit going on with future planning around Fishermans Bend too. I'm not a massive fan of the area in general, but you'd take it ahead of moving out to Casey.

    Bernadene Voss, former Port Phillip mayor and now president of the Fishermans Bend Business Forum, said with a dearth of parkland in the area, the community would welcome any increase in green space.

    “It’s the only development I’m aware of that is making significant green space on the ground for the wider community,” Voss said.

    For the post to be deleted by the club someone was offended. It might not be Kozzy but the “Thick” reference could be interpreted as fat shaming or body shaming and the club is just being PC about it. 

    Perhaps Kozzy came back out of shape, not my opinion as I think he looks to be in beast mode, but maybe he came back a bit heavier but social media didn’t get the memo and posted what they did and then were asked to remove it either by Kozzy or the FD. 

    Anyway this is all purely conjecture and probably has no bearing in reality. 

    On Kozzy's shape/size, it seems all according to plan, so wouldn't think he's in any way out of shape:

    “The plan is different for everyone, (and) for Kozzie it was to actually put on a bit more size,” GM of football Alan Richardson said.

    As far as the social post goes, I think people are going a bit overboard with the theories here, it was a harmless comment. Given Kozzy has deleted all his insta posts though, you could possibly throw a guess out there that he's decided to pull out from social media for a little while, which is pretty common, and the club deleted the post to go along with that. Could just be a 'social detox' thing or perhaps something happened, but either way only thing that matters is that everything is ok for the young bloke.

    I've always been troubled by what professional full-time umpires would be expected to do all week when not actually umpiring. However, perhaps there's room for a hybrid model with one (or maybe two) professional umpires as senior umpires in each game with three (or two) non-fulltime umpires making up the full complement. The full-time umpires program during the week could include teaching the non-full time umpires, visiting club training to educate teams and work with other leagues (VFL, suburban, country) to help their umpires.  

    Same thing full-time footballers do all week - Fitness training, skills training, reviewing and planning etc. They do a lot of that already, it's quite intensive, so being full-time would elevate all of that to an even more professional level IMO.

    Surely if the three maggots can’t get it right, and occasionally contradict one another, enlarging the cesspit won’t produce better maggots, only more of lower quality. 

    Really think it's time we moved on from this kind of language about umps.

    Good point made about decision-making. It might be worth asking who at the Club made the decision not to avoid any privacy issues by putting out this Deemocracy alternative view when the SGM was called - it seemed to be quite a considered view. Then who at the Club made the decision to fight an unwinnable case on addresses, and protract the fight - with members' money.  At least it seems he was using his own resources.

    I' m glad they challenged it, and seeing member feedback on socials it seems the vast majority of members were too.

    'Deemocracy' have managed to destroy their own agenda with their own hands. Just goes to show it takes more than passion and money to positively impact a football club.

    Have a good one!

    It's the law, has been for some time. Another pesky inconvenience that. Suggest you read the Supreme Court decision when it is published.

    You're certainly an expert at missing the point. Nowhere did I say it wasn't the law, I merely stated Peter Lawrence (or any member for that matter) can obtain the member contact details whenever they wish. That's correct isn't it?

    Pretty clearly your mate has got a large number of members offside with that effort and given the vote count it was all for nothing in terms of furthering his agenda anyway. Not the type of decision maker I would want on my club's board.

    Afterall there is no way for him to outline his position.

    Aside from his website and the emails and printed material he's sent.

    Oh, and as far as I'm aware Lawrence is unable to contact members now as the Court decision included a provision that he destroys the membership contact details after the vote on the constitution was taken.

    But given the decision, he could easily attain those details again should he wish, just as any other member has now been made aware of apparently.
