Lin Jong

Recommended Posts

He is an ordinary small player.

Small players don't achieve much at AFL level unless you are brilliant and he ain't.

We make things difficult for ourselves in this country. I'm astonished there isn't strict rules and regulations in place to ensure that ALL agent meetings are post-season. In the NBA, teams are not able to discuss an upcoming free agent's prospects of signing with them until the free agency window has opened. Outside of that, a team can waive "rights" to a contracted player, essentially make them free to join whoever they want at any time. 

What we're seeing in the AFL is teams meeting with a player's agent while they're still contracted to another club. This puts said team at a disadvantage because while said player is exploring other options, the team they're actually contracted to is being told that contract negotiations are "on hold", when they're anything but. 

The AFL needs to stamp its authority on this. There should be no discussion -- publicly or privately -- of a team exploring signing a contracted player in the off-season. We all know that Hogan's agent has had discussions with WA teams, that others team have contacted McDonald's management. This should be reserved until post season, and teams that break the rules should be punished.

It's a farce. If the AFL ever allows the free agency system to go the way of NRL's, I'll quit this game.

Agree with your post 'praha'..

It always makes me laugh when I hear people talk of the NRL system as being mature...no one has ever told me why, the reason being is it's plain dumb. Even they know that and the smarter NRL people (is that an oxymoron?) would like to see the end of this so called maturity.

I, like you would like to see all discussion outlawed until trade time...

Jing Long is just a back up player at the dogs. I am glad the woods are after him….. probably end up as the "old" kennedy.   Not seeing much daylight.

I'm still working my head around how Collingwood contacting him directly isn't violating the rules for contact with players who are still playing at other clubs. Surely if the Bombers were annoyed about how we're approaching the managers of the banned players then the Dogs have every right to be filthy at the Pies and Lin Jong for touring another clubs facilities and speaking with Bucks.

[EDIT] Maybe the Dogs don't really see Lin Jong at the club next year anyway.

I'm reviving this thread as Lin Jong is almost single handedly destroying Casey at the moment in the VFL GF. He is far more than just a VFL standard player. To come back from a broken collarbone inside two weeks of the injury occurring and to play the game he is playing, setting up most of the Dogs' attack ( and will likely play in next week's GF) is a seriously good effort in anyone's book...the Dees should be taking a serious look at him.

Exactly the type of player our midfield needs to add another dimension. 2017 2nd rounder, get it done.

Turns out he taped his good shoulder up today so that the Casey players would target and bump it thinking it was the bad one.

Sneaky trick but it got him best on field today.

Especially after cardboard tough guy Dunny threw him around in the "scuffle". Kudos where they are deserved and Jong has really come along this season, well done kid.

I understand Dunny thought process, the game had shifted Doggies way but it back fired. A very experienced Casey team out played by a younger, quicker side who just never stop. Have no issues with LD though, hope he has a great future in whatever he is doing.

He always seems to play well whenever I watch him. I would definitely like to slot him in our side if possible within reason.

Lin Jong took the opportunity presented to him due to injuries to Dogs players in the second half of the year.

He played 5 out of the first 12 games so he was obviously in and out. (This is when he went to see Collingwood.)

Of the last 10 games he played all 10 plus one final.

Suspect the Dogs may offer him a good deal for the next few years.

Trouble with Jong at Doggies is that he's about 6th or 7th in line for mids, so he generally plays in the HFF graveyard when he plays AFL.

Yesterday was an example of how effective he could be with a whole lot more time on the ball than he's ever going to get at AFL with Doggies.

His disposal going inside 50 carved us up. It is the exact type of player we need on our HFF opposed to Bombtheball McGees in Harmes Kent Vandenberg ect

So we should recruit a guy who lowers his eyes rather than just simply tell our players to lower theirs?

I don't think Jong's that player at AFL level though. His ball use is better at VFL level where he has a lot more time.

Didn't make their GF team, so might be more inclined to leave now.

Not against the idea of Jong.

One of he, Hartlett, Motlop, Wells, Harvey or Dal Santo would be beneficial to the outside of our midfield.

I'm not as fond of Barlow though. Think we have enough one paced inside mids.

    QUEENS BIRTHDAY BLOCKBUSTER by Bananabender

    A little known fact for Victorians is that Queenslanders don’t celebrate the Queen's Birthday in June but rather in October. The scheduled date on this year’s calendar is 5 October, 2020. However, I have a suggestion for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and that is to move the date forward a month and a half to this Saturday so that the coming clash of traditional rivals, Melbourne and Collingwood, continues a longstanding tradition of our game — the Queen’s Birthday Blockbuster.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,
