A bombshell is about to hit the lead-up to the AFL trade period with star Melbourne forward Jesse Hogan set to play with Fremantle next year if the Dockers are successful in their multimillion-dollar bid to lure the West Australian home.

The Dockers have been chasing Hogan for years, but The Australian understands they believe they have a realistic chance of recruiting him in next month’s player-exchange period, which officially starts on Monday week.

Trading Hogan, 23, could also work for the Demons as the stunning development could help them land Gold Coast captain and key defender Steven May, who has another year of his contract remaining.

It is understood Melbourne are prepared to consider sacrificing Hogan for May after their glaring deficiency in defence against West Coast in last Saturday’s 11-goal preliminary final defeat, even with top backman Jake Lever expected back early next season from a knee reconstruction.

There is already a thread

This rumor just gets old.

Would be stupid for Hogan to leave a young, top tier to go to an old team about to lose one of its best players
We're not exactly old. Sandilands is, but there's Darcy ready to go.

Mundy is, but he's still playing well.

Ballas is... and he's a crab.

Take those 3 guys out we then have Fyfe and Stephen Hill at 27. Everyone else is younger than those 2.

What you should've said is - Would be stupid for Hogan to leave a young, top tier to go to a Lyon coached, defensive teams about to lose one of its best players due to rifts with Fyfe and others.

Yeah I didn't actually mean to put old in there

So we are to believe that Melbourne are going to offload the pick they get for Hogan, onto GC, in exchange for May? At least when the media make up rumors could they at least come up with a realistic trade scenario? There is a 3 year gulf between these guys (favoring Hogan). Hogan was twice the player May was this year, Hogan has twice the talent May has, and Hogan plays a FAR harder position than May, and, quality forwards are worth MORE. There is not a man born from his Mother that would straight swap Hogan for May, yet we are supposed to believe this trade is done. I have about had the media.
