Could be 10 from 10 in his first 10 games.  Simply unbelievable

Love his hard running, strong tackling and tidy skills.

Let's hope he challenges Joel Selwoods record of success..

Looking back, he was an excellent draft pick by JT that mirrored the need by the footy club.  JJ was the youngest player drafted in his year as he scrapped into the eligibility by 11 days. Had played school footy predominately and rose up the draft order on the back of his TAC cup GF performance.  
 

💙❤️Good skilled ball user 

💙❤️Wins his own footy 

💙❤️Good character 

 

in JT we trust 🏆

Now I have only watched the first quarter.  JJ had 10 disposals, had a hand in the Swans first 2 goals, disposal by foot was terrible but did dish out some good hand passes.

On to the second quarter.

I thought he was one of our best yesterday against Collingwood.  His stat sheet is very impresive for a youngster finding his way.

Team high for Metres Gained and Score Involvements.  29 disposals at 82.8% efficiancy.

If I'm his manager and I'm seeing either Harmes or Sparrow ahead of him in the pecking order for the remainder of the season, I'm encouraging him to explore his options!

Absolutely. 
I can totally respect that he’d get a game at most clubs and if he’s struggling to get one at ours he has every right to explore that. 
He is way way too good to play VFL.

I'm a JJ fan, and thought he was hard done by at the selection table last year. Whilst others were struggling, JJ would be the first player dropped. He showed his class on Sunday.

Wouldn't blame him if he walked.

I really rate JJ. Having watched Adelaide play Port on the weekend, they are setting up nicely to be a force in a few years. The midfield depth is their weakness and I could see him being a good replacement for Rory Sloane (who really wound back the clock last weekend). Sparrow could also be a target. Previously I thought that Sparrow would be the one to keep, and have been expecting him to breakout, but I think he might not have the game awareness and craft of JJ. It might be a fascinating watch this year as to who progresses further.

I see Harmes as being “I’m Melbourne, Tony”, but maybe we do have to be supportive of him finding a new home if it means we keep both the SA boys

JJ is from Yarrawonga. Kade Chandler from SA.

I wouldnt blame him, but id blame the club immensely!   

A 22yr old AFL-grade midfielder who wins his own footy, uses it very well, is fit/healthy and who's had 360 and 445 possession in his first 2 years.   For all the hyperbole Adam "what's my strengths again" Cerra gets, JJ is a demonstrably better footballer.  Whatever the tough decisions are here, they need to get it done. He's got a 200 game career ahead of him for someone.

Simple

JJ > Harmes

More consistent, better ball use/decision making, better tank, better tackling, pressure, and overall defensively.

The only thing Harmes does better is also what makes him a liability and thats taking the opposition on with fend off's and breaking tackles. Harmes used to be a great contested mark for his size but even that's gone down hill.

I love James Harmes and we all know his story growing up a Melbourne Demon supporter etc. He's been a terrific leader and when the team is playing well he still performs well. But JJ is far more reliable now. I hope the FD know this and Harmes becomes the depth player behind JJ.

I totally agree. Both Harmes and Melksham really shouldn't be getting selected ahead of the likes off JJ.

Now's the time to be giving the younger ones games.

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
