    Speculation Luke Jackson

    There's a million things that he could have said if he was legit homesick: "I'm enjoying Melbourne. Perth will always be my home but the club has been great and let's me spend extra time here on interstate trips and pre-season". "I love Melbourne but Perth is always my home". "Mum misses me...

    Toast How can this Melbourne side be stopped?

    yeah I sort of missed your initial point but I do agree that stats can be made to manipulate anything. Yeah, you can plug holes for a little bit but when your players miss half the season (4 of 8 weeks) you can't really go that long without suffering the consequences. Like Joel Smith for Lever...

    Speculation Luke Jackson

    Yeah, if he truly does miss home then yeah. I wouldn't say a little club driven podcast is exactly 'on camera' in the true sense of what you're talking about i.e. in front mod media etc. I'll take him on his word. Below is the dialogue: 21.30 Gawn: 'serious question, living away from home...

    Speculation Luke Jackson

    I'm not disregarding it. I just haven't heard an answer that makes any sort of sense. I don't see why he'd want to go to Freo and be the 2nd ruck there for the next 8 years of Darcy's career when he can be the number 1 ruck for melbourne in 3 years. Not to mention the fact that he is a young...

    So then Petracca would be traded for Pick 14 and 18? (i.e. what freo fans think will get the Jackson deal done)?

    Speculation Luke Jackson

    2nds are nothing these days. the hit rate on 2nds is slim. I'd be more than happy to give you some 2nd rounders back which is about pick 35. Speculative at best.

    Speculation Luke Jackson

    Jackson is worth more than Petracca in trade terms. Petracca is 6 years older. That's 6 years closer to retirement. Once again, age is the main driver of trade value. Same reason why Horne-Francis was offered 3 first rounders by Adelaide last season.

    Jeremy Cameron got 3 firsts and as good as he is he doesn't have the trade value of Jackson due to age.

    Speculation Luke Jackson

    I'm not alone. they were discussing it on SEN a few days ago. 3 first rounders seems to be the general consensus.

    Speculation Luke Jackson

    hypothetically, if Brayshaw was wanting to join Angus at the dees and was out of contract what would you expect Melbourne to give up? We traded out our first rounder so don't have one, so our first pick is about 30-odd. So pick 30-odd and a future first (say pick 18) is all we could offer. Pick...

    Speculation Luke Jackson

    It's simply what he's worth. If freo try and play hard to get, WCE can pick him up in the PSD. Good luck with trying to lowball us.

    Speculation Luke Jackson

    Yes. as he is young. a ruckman. and a generational talent. Guys like Judd etc. were like 25 when they were traded. that's 5 years older. 5 years less service than what a club would get out of Jackson. I'd say it's no different to if Horne-Francis was traded. He warrants 3 picks also. Age is the...

    Speculation Luke Jackson

    That's simply his value. if you don't understand that, I can't help you. If you did a poll, people would take Jackson over Brayshaw.

    You sound like a grounded individual. lol. Enjoy 2022 with the best and deepest midfield in the comp.

    Speculation Luke Jackson

    Okay, so lets be real here. Jackson is worth 3 first rounders. something like 5, 14, and 18. Offering say 5 & 14 is unders. Offering 14 and 18 is simply disrespectful. I'm sorry but if this was Andrew Brayshaw you would want more than 14 and 18 and Jackson is worth more than Brayshaw due to...

    So fremantles defence is better than our vfl teams defence? cool. So Lever, Petty and Salem miss most of the season and you don't even factor that in. laughable. Lets see how Stkilda goes without Max King, Steele and Marshall and tell me personnel doesn't matter and it's all about system lol.

    In what world isn't our defence better than Fremantle's? Please factor in the fact that Lever, Petty, Salem have missed most of this season as well as Hibberd who has missed all. So please factor this into your answer. Fremantles defence is good. For 8 games. Ours has been good for a year...

    Most people don't like Kane Cornes either despite being the best sports media guy in the industry. Also, getting personal isn't endearing. Stick to the footy chat.
